Colts Vs. Bills Preseason Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Welcome back to gameday Colts fans! Our Colts begin their 30th anniversary here in Indianapolis as they host the visiting Buffalo Bills this afternoon with the gametime and kickoff from LOS 1;35PM. Eastern Standard Time.

Chuck Pagano also returns in his second year as Head Coach, as is QB Andrew Luck, who led the Colts in the greatest regular season turnaround in team history from 3-13 iin 2011, to 11-5 in 2012, and a playoff berth, losing abruptly to eventual Super Bowl XLVII Champion Baltimore Ravens.

Fans and the Colts coaching staff will also see the rookies recently picked from the recent NFL Draft play on the field this afternoon, including first round pick DE Bjorn Werner from Florida State, S John Boyett, TE Justice Cunningham, C Khaled Holmes, DT Montori Hughes, G Hugh Thornton, and RB Kerwynn Williams.

Key veteran additions include CB Vontae Davis in a trade with Miami, Tim Hasselback, expected to backup Andrew Luck at QB, CB Greg Toler, and S Laron Landry.

Key losses from last year's Colts team from 2012 though include, Donnie Avery, Austin Collie, Dwight Freeney, Jerry Hughes, Drew Stanton, and Tom Zbikowski.

Veteran Indiana broadcaster Don Fischer announces the live TV play-by-play, along with new TV game analyst Barry Krauss, on all Colts preseason games live on WNDY My Channel 23, and replayed later nationally on the NFL Network, live on HD.

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' also announces all Colts games this season on radio, along with new radio game analyst and former Colt QB Jim Sorgi, simulcast on Colts flagships stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WLHK 97.1FM, and the Colts Radio Network.

No injuries as all the Colts players, including the rookies, veterans, and free agents, all audition this month to make the 53-man regular season roster. Exciting Colts football is back, and GO COLTS!!! :cheer::rock::excited::coltshelmet::coltshorse::coltsfb::coltslogo::colts::coltshelmet::cheer:

You know we are ready to ROCK and ROLL when our great Colts friend LucasOilStadium gets us CHARGED with the Game Day Thread!!!  Like we really needed to be charged any more!!!   :)  Great job LOS!!!  Are YOU READY Colts fans???

 

I actually got some tickets for today....so I will miss today's thread, but I cannot wait to analyze the game instead of seeing bits and pieces...and replays on TV.  

 

I am looking forward to seeing the OL and DL (Chemistry and footwork/technique) as well as Justice Cunningham seeing a lot of work in place of Dwayne Allen.  Here's to Allen's injury not being of a 'pesky' nature that keeps him out for any extended time.

 

I will be on here this morning. (About 10 AM EDT)  If anyone wants me to look at someone in particular feel free to post or send a PM.  Enjoy the game!   :colts:  :colts:  :colts:  :coltsfb:  :coltsfb:  :coltsfb:  :coltslogo:  :coltslogo:  :coltslogo: !!!!!

Is Bob Lamey going to call the game on the NFL Network today? I've noticed that the other preseason games they've televised have used the home play-by-play guy and I'm hoping to be able to hear Bob call this one. Bob is the best!

Justin Hickman was just on the 1070 pre-game with Joe Stasniak, Jim Sorgi and Jeffrey Gorman and raved about the leadership of Freeman and Mathis.

PrincetonTiger, and all the Colts fans here on the board, the Colts and many of the NFL teams  choose to wear the white jerseys (especially the Cowboys) at their  home stadiums during the preseason in August, and the first  month of the regular season in September. Colts are wearing white today because  to reflect their uniforms from the sun and heat during the summer, and stay cool, while they play on the field, while the Bills blue jerseys, or any dark jersey absorb the heat inside their bodies, while they play on their line of scrimmage.

 

Weather at Downtown Indianapolis is at 82 degrees and Sunny and Clear at kickoff, so I'm sure the roof at LOS is open at gametime. Hopefully the white jerseys and pants is the the Colts advantage. GO COLTS!  :cheer:  :blueshoe:  :coltshelmet:  :colts:  :coltslogo:

Is WNDY part of your local package

Yeah, I think so. It's one of the only local non HD channels. I'll just record it later on the NFL chan, but it's just kind of annoying.

the game is in HD here in the Pocket(Colts Network)

I'm just complaining, haha. It is kind of odd they don't have it in HD on WNDY (Direct TV). My cousin has AT&T Uverse he just said he gets it in HD.

    • Thoughts on drafting a WR in the 1st round:   1. The most recent stat regarding T.Y. missing games and our inability to win in those games (0-7 in games T.Y. has missed) has highlighted the importance of the WR position.   2. Without T.Y. (our only deep threat) the opposing teams have stacked the box and played close to the LOS, taking away our short passing game and our run game.  (I am aware that JB is also to blame for the short passing game).   3. Opposing teams have stacked the boxes and have sent more blitzes, causing more difficulties for out O-lineman. We've had to keep our RBs and TE's in to help out with the blitz pick-ups, taking them out of our passing game too.   4. Without T.Y., it's been difficult to get first downs consistently, because we do not have another WR that can get open fast enough, and on a consistent basis, with reliable hands. This has put a lot of pressure on the offense, and in-turn, the defense has been on the field more.   I know that many people will say that building the trenches is more important. I agree, especially on defense. But, we have seen the negative impact of not having a player like T.Y. in the lineup has had on the offense, including the O-line. They appear to not be able to run block or pass block because of how teams can play against us without a true deep threat, or reliable pass-catcher.
    • I think Parris will be great if he stays healthy next year. But Mclaurin was nfl ready and he could of helped immediately. It’s hard to know if Parris hadn’t had the hamstring in camp and had started the season on good footing what might of happened. We will find out soon if Funchess was the wrong signing. He never got a chance.
    • "Get a grip of all of the doom and gloom". I don't know how you make an honest assessment of where this team is and not think "oh god, I hope we don't turn into a Titans-esq squad". It's great that they can sort of run and sort of stop the run, but that's not winning anything meaningful now or in the future.  Going from Super Bowl potential, to waiting out a 7-9 to 9-7 type season- at least for people who'd like to see the Colts win another Super Bowl, isn't awesome.
