Colts @ Bengals Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

Welcome back for another NFL Gameday  Sunday, Colts fans!   :)  Our AFC South leading Indianapolis Colts are down southeast Interstate 74 to play the AFC North leading Cincinnati Bengals in a battle of 8-4 division leaders. 


Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf are announcing the primary early singleheader game on The NFL On CBS, and seen locally on WISH CBS channel 8, live on HD.


Light snow with partly cloudy skies at 29 degrees, with a wind chill at 21 degrees, is the local game forecast inside Paul Brown Stadium for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff.


A win by the Colts would make them both earn the AFC South, and increase their chance to qualify for the NFL Playoffs.


NO injuries to both the Colts and Bengals as they play in the outside weather elements, and GO COLTS!!!!!   :rock:  :coltslogo:  :colts:  :1colts:  :blueshoe:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:  :D

Hi, ALL!

I'm really feeling this one today.  I think we play up to our competition and with some of the new

pieces, the veterans feel they have to step it up a bit.

Just wish we had better conditions for the game since we go up against a really stiff defensive line

and our OL is...well, our OL, lol.  I consider them quite "offensive".

GO COLTS.  All day, every day!

Rooting for you guys to help out my Ravens with a solid win against Ginger & Co. today.  No way you let a soul-lacking QB beat your team.



Go get 'em Colts!

We'll take all the luck we can get.  Thanks!

i don't think you guys will need much luck against the Vike's.  Hopefully by end of the day you folks

will only be 1 back.

Hope everyone had a great week. Today we will see if any of the Colts made the trip down I-74 or if they sent the substitute team again. Let's hope the real Colts show up.

Sadly, I will have to check out for a bit during the 1st quarter as I need to take my sons to a birthday party, but hopefully will be back by halftime....let me know if I miss anything.

    • Sure, all true.  But my theme was that a lot of us here (and especially the national media) had expectations of winning the division last season.  We all know the reasons it went south.  We all could have said similar things that you pointed out - Oline uncertainty, QB arm/age, etc., but most were confident.     Oline improved, QB room improved, play calling possibilities, etc..  Yet people now think 6 wins would be a successful season.     We were so optimistic last year, why are the expectations so low this season?  It’s mostly the same  team, with improvements.
    • Yes.  The chart is valid and always has been.   There are always some quirks.  Supposedly PIT turned down some capital to be able to stay in the area to draft Joey Porter Jr....so there are sometimes reasons for the chart to look wonky on any given trade (or nontrade). but its valid for the most part.
    • OK….   I understand that the less imaginative people are going to respond with the Dumb and Dumber meme “So you’re telling me there’s a chance…”       It’s easy and requires no real thought on the subject.  So go right ahead if it makes you feel “special”.     Goodness gracious…..       
    • In the NFL, margins of winning can be very close. So, we could end up winning a bunch of close games and winning 9 games or end up losing a bunch of close ones and win just 6 games. The odds of our secondary holding up with some inexperience in the back end which will matter in close games, and the odds of a run oriented offense being able to come back against better teams by passing the ball both work against us in games where our D and O cannot control tempo. 2 games vs the Raiders and Broncos, we had Stephon Gilmore close out, that experience will be missed, IMO. Plus Darius Leonard is a question mark as to whether he will be able to play at the same high level we know he can. Plus, typically 2nd year chemistry with pass catchers is better than 1st year chemistry.   These are all valid question marks I laid out, that cause me to lean more towards the 6 win side than the 9 win side. Plus, not to mention, when teams had to step on the gas vs Gus Bradley's D, they typically did. We are playing with house money, anything can happen and I will enjoy every small victory within a game that shows progress and good football even if does not lead to a W, I will leave it at that.
