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.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
