Colts Vs. Dolphins Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

Colts gameday is here again, everybody!   :)   Our Indianapolis Colts play their second straight home game, and also seek their second straight road win, as they host the new look  Miami Dolphins at LOS.   Dolphins traveled up north again to play their second straight road game, have won the previous Sunday, defeating the Browns 23-10 at Cleveland.

 

Today is the 72nd regular season meeting. Indianapolis though trail behind in the all-time regular season series with Miami at 25-46, including losing two playoff games, witha winning percentage of 35.2%.  Rivalry began after the AFL-NFL merger when the Baltimore Colts shut out the Dolphins 35-0 at Memorial Stadium back in November 1, 1970.  Colts though are in a four-game regular season winning streak, including defeating Miami in their last game together 23-20 at LOS back on November 4, 2012.

 

LOS's roof may be closed for the  1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because mostly cloudy and clear skies at 71 degrees is the  is the local forecast in Downtown Indianapolis,  along with  44% humidity, 10% precipitation, and south/southwest winds at 8 miles per hour.

 

Dolphins may wear their matching white jerseys and pants, while the Colts wear their traditional home blue jerseys, and white pants on the field this afternoon.

NO injuries, stay both Colts Strong and Chuck Strong, and win your second straight game in 2013. GO COLTS!!!   :cheer:   :excited:  :rock:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:  :colts:  :1colts:  :pass:  :coltslogo:  :cheer:  :D

Interested to see how they will play Mike Wallace. Wallace was locked down all of week one. He is to good to have that happen to him again. The runningbacks don't scare me at all but I think Tannehill will play with a bit of a chip on his shoulder against Luck. He is the least talked about among the young QB's from last year. I see this game turning out to be another Luck saving the day and will be decided by 7 or less.

    • This would be amazing. He has underwhelmed so far but mostly due to a few injury issues.
    • Well that's $19m a season on the extension. Kick in another $1m if you want. I think a $45m check in 2021 upon signing extension gets it done.    Which is it? He won't get what he wants or he is going to get $20m, like you said above?   How are negotiations going to go? Enlighten us.
    • I think Jones has the skills to succeed in SF. So many people want a guy these days who can make plays outside the pocket but like I said Jones certainly has the ability to make a name for himself. I just hope and pray no rookie QB goes to Chicago.
    • Maybe   I think he has really good footwork and on day 1, he will have a strength and conditioning coach in his ear to improve   He may not be able to increase his athletic ability, but he probably can get a bit stronger, which would help his cause   He does suffer from some short arm issues, which is terrible if you expect him to pick up the check, but could limit his ability to keep the longer armed DEs off of him.   Its sort of like when your older brother with longer arms (It was a cousin for me) puts his hands on your forehead and you cant reach him to punch him......     They teach the OTs these days to swat the hands away when the DE uses their longer arms to start a rip or swim move   You can see this on Jenkins tape. He quickly swats away that stuff.... some OL coach is showing him that   Overall, Eichenberg will not be pro bowl, but with some work he is a guy that can develop to hold his own against the DE in front of him. If we end up with him, or 3 or 4 others OT prospects, (not at 21 for the latter group) I am a happy camper   If he gets a pro bowler in front of him, you give him some help with TE and LG, (Sometimes WR)   And you set plays that work some times against the better DEs (Traps)                                
    • I think predicting what he's going to do is a bit premature before we see who they bring in from the draft.  Assuming they get a LT and a nice weapon or two I do think he's in for a big year.  But he's definitely going to need that protection to be there on his blindside as well as more threat across the middle.   If the blindside isn't there then that will eat another player in the form of a TE or RB chipping or helping him out.  If the passing game threats don't improve it will be easier for teams to focus an excellent run game.  I think Ballard gets this done but really need to see what Wentz is going to have around him.  Current passing game threats probably aren't good enough for a top statistical season.
