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.

    • Watson started this recent public trade thing by stating that the organization has flawed hiring practices.  And I think he never debunked the idea that the current owner was a lot like his father, simply because he is his son.   Its not really about the next season or even the team's won loss record over the next three years.  Its bigger than that.  I think it would be smarter to not accommodate whiners, and in a legal manner, not set the precedent of accommodating someone who conducts detrimental actions that undermines the new coach and the authority structure of the organization.   If you accommodate Watson, you set the precedent that all whiners need to be accommodated or else you end up singling some out for disparate treatment.  This shows what a cancer players like Watson are to an entire organization.    And, I would think a player like that has limited trade value, despite the rumors.  I would  simply move on from him....forget he even exists...would be the less time consuming and smarter move.  If he wants to sit out, fine, but I'm drafting this spring with the idea that he's going to try to put me at a disadvantage and wait until after FA and the draft before he tells me he wont play next year.   There is some root of the problem that has yet to be revealed.   If its about making bad personnel decisions, resulting in a losing record, I get that....but the HC, OBrien who was responsible for those moves was fired months ago.  Seems like Watson and Watt are still holding some kind of grudge over something, or simply launching their marketing brand by grandstanding.   If I were the GM, I'd just ignore Watson until he apologized for those statements instead of honoring his wishes, and then if the team struggles, show to the whole world what people like that can do to a team, blame the teams failure's over a whiner sitting out the season too arrogant and stubborn to apologize for something he should not have said in the first place.       
    • The 2006 team was the greatest and it is not even a debate. They went 10-0 at home including the playoffs, 16-4 overall, and most importantly won the SB = they finished. The 2005 team during the regular season beat teams by a wider margin but lost in the divisional round. That team did not have Adam Vinatieri either, the 2006 team did. In 2006 we seen the best of Bob Sanders in the playoffs and we went through Ray Lewis/Ed Reed/Steve McNair at Baltimore, and beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the AFC Title Game. Also in respect to the 2009 team, that team didn't have Vinatieri either, nor did it have Marvin Harrison or Bob Sanders, Dungy wasn't the Coach as well. It is 2006 hands down.
    • Probably 2005, that  team was loaded and then played a tragically bad game to the sixth seeded Steelers in the playoffs.    
    • In addition to some of the examples from @stitches:   - Was your offense restricted last season by having a less mobile QB? If so, in what ways? - Your offense was bottom third in play action attempts last season. Can you talk about how play action fits in your offense, and how it might be affected by the physical ability of the QB? - Your defense had some really good stretches, but was less effective against good QBing. (Example, short clock but long TD drives against the Bills/Packers, etc.) What will it take for the defense to take another step forward this season? - What will be Press Taylor's role on the staff? Will that differ from his role in Philly? - You went from a RB coach with decades of experience, to one who hasn't played or directly coached RBs so far. What went into that decision and what kind of impact might it have on the RB group? - At what positions do you think you most need improved playmaking? - How do you think the limited college season, no Combine, and restricted travel might impact prospect evaluation? - To what extent, if any, do you think being the primary play caller impacts your game management and decision making? - Do you still have weekly protection meetings like you did in 2018? How might those be impacted by the changes on the coaching staff?   Just saying, there's a lot of meat out there. Don't have to keep gnawing at the same bone.   Imagine this group trying to cover Gregg Popovich...
