Colts Vs. Raiders Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans! :)   NFL regular season is finally here!  Our  Indianapolis Colts begin  their second year of the post-Peyton Manning era with the leadership and direction of Head Coach Chuck Pagano, QB Andrew Luck, and General Manager Ryan Grigson.  These three men primarily, along with the rest of the Colts players, coaches, support team, and front office, were responsible for the tremendous turnaround from their 2-11 season, to an 11-5 record in 2012 and reaching the NFL playoffs.   Colts and their fans look for another, and perhaps better 2013 season, and expectations are  high for the Colts to be a Super Bowl-caliber team.

 

Colts have won 10 of their last regular season home openers, but their last one occurred four years ago where they defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 14-12 at LOS back on September 16, 2009.  Colts won their first 15 regular season games that year, finishing with a 14-2 record, but lost to eventual Super Bowl  XLIV champion New Orleans Saints 31-14 in Miami.

 

Raiders are making their first regular season appearance in Indianapolis since October 10, 2004.  Colts broke a four game regular season losing streak over the Raiders that day, winning 35-14. Indianapolis subsequently won the next two games at Oakland - 21-14 on December 16, 2007, and in the recent meeting winning 31-26, back on December 26, 2010 where the Colts have a current three game winning streak over the Raiders entering this afternoon. 

 

Highlights from that 2010 Colts/Raider game included three touchdown passes from Peyton Manning  -  18 yards to Jacob Tamme, 4 yards to Blair White, and 7 yards to Pierre Garcon. Joseph Addai  also scored his 6 yard touchdown run to start the Colts scoring in the first quarter,  and Adam Vinatieri  kicked 4 PATs, and a 30-yard field goal to complete the Colts scoring for their 31-26 victory.

 

Colts wide receiver Darius Heyward-Bey faces his former team, the Raiders, as their opponent since being released on March 13. DHB was knocked unconscious by the Steelers Ryan Mundy in the end zone in his last offensive play as a Raider  in the end zone back on September 23, 2012. Heyward-Bey lied motionless in the end zone in ten minuites before being removed by an ambulance.

 

LOS's roof may be closed for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because clear and partly cloudy skies at 74 degrees is the local forecast, along with 71% humidity, 0%  precipitation, and and mild north/northeastern winds at 4 miles per hour.

 

Marv Albert and former NFL veteran QB Rich Gannon are announcing the live TV game commentary for the NFL On CBS,  regionally seen in parts of northern Kentucky and Nevada, Houston, TX,  and most of California and Indiana, including locally in Indianapolis on WISH-TV CBS 8, seen live on HD.

 

Bob Lamey, our  'Voice Of The Colts,' is announcing the live radio game play-by-play, along with former Colt QB Jim Sorgi, and sideline reporter Matt Taylor, simulcast on Colts flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070 AM, and WLHK Country 98.1, and throughout the Tri-States on the  Colts Vectren/Radio Network.

 

Visiting Raiders are wearing the white jerseys and silver pants on the field today, while the host Colts are wearing their traditional blue jerseys, and white pants.

 

NO injuries, and let's hope Andrew Luck and company start off opening Sunday with a win!   Continue to stay Colts Strong, and GO COLTS!!!!!   :cheer:  :rock:  :pass:  :coltslogo:  :coltshelmet:  :coltshorse:  :coltsfb:  :colts:  :1colts:  :coltslogo:  :cheer:  :D

I sure would like to be at the game today, but that's another story. The BIG story in northern Indiana is that the game is NOT televised! Comcast cable is carrying 3 NFC north games. This is week one Comcast - get your head out and give fans what they are paying for!

I have Comcast, but I live in Indy. So if they didn't carry the game there would be a revolt against them.

    • For what little it's worth,  I don't know the website where you found the measurements,  but I think Munoz arrived at USC in the mid-70's around 280.    I think he played his entire career at 300 plus...      Same with Reggie White...   I think he played his Green Bay years around 300....
    • I want a LT too.    But I'm not sure we will get one tht is ready to go on Day 1.    Do you want Carson Wentz to have to perform with a below average rookie LT?      I don't think so.     I still expect to draft one.    But that guy may need some time, like a year or so.  
    • This happened in the last 24 hours or so...   Draftek, using projections from OverTheCap.com has predicted the compensatory picks in R's 3-7.   I'm not sure if this includes bonus picks awarded for teams who lost Coaches of Color to other franchises.   Was that supposed to kick in this year or next?    I don't see that reflected yet.   So, that may be still in the pipeline.   Either way.....   take a look.    There is also a simple click to look at what is being called a newer or more frequently used model known as the Rich Hill model.   It appears to be endorsed by Bill Belichick.      It is, what it is.....    same idea and concept,  just somewhat different point valuations.    Worth taking a look.    Enjoy!   https://www.drafttek.com/NFL-Trade-Value-Chart.asp?RequestTeam=ind
    • Yep, just like in an all-time draft for example. Lets say you have 6 people participating in that exercise. All 6 will take a QB in round 1 as in perhaps: 1st pick. Tom Brady (Team 1) 2nd pick. Joe Montana (Team 2) 3rd pick. Peyton Manning (Team 3) 4th pick. Johnny Unitas (Team 4) 5th pick. John Elway (Team 5) 6th pick. Aaron Rodgers (Team 6) -every team is set at QB at that point, in a snake draft, Team 6 picks 1st in round 2 to keep it fair and at that point who knows what Team 6 will do based on value of pick??   Maybe for round 2: 7th pick. (Team 6) Jerry Rice WR or do you take a LT like Anthony Munoz or a Pass Rusher like Lawrence Taylor or Reggie White? Lets say Team 6 goes with Rice, then   8th pick. (Team 5) perhaps take Anthony Munoz LT here at 6'6 280 pounds with long arms you would have a guy that can protect your QB for a decade. Then again some may want to go Randy Moss WR or Marvin Harrison WR here or a Pass Rusher??   9th pick. (Team 4) I would say Lawrence Taylor OLB 6'3 240 pounds here based on value or Reggie White DE 6'5 290 pounds, right?
