Colts Vs. Texans Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

We are back together for another Colts NFL Game Day,  Colts Nation!  :)     A battle of the consecutive AFC South Champions this Sunday afternoon as our 2013 AFC South Champions  and 8-5 Indianapolis Colts, host  last year's  divisional champions,  and 2-9,  Houston Texans in the rematch at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).   Colts seek to sweep the home-and- home series this afternoon in Downtown Indianapolis.   Indianapolis would also have to win their remaining three games to equal their 2012 regular season record  at  11-5.

 

Colts won the earlier meeting six weeks ago in Houston, winning 27-24 at Reliant Stadium back on November 3, 2013.  Scoring highlights for the Colts in that game include two field goals from Colts kicker Adam Vineteiri from 30 and 35 yards.  Colts QB Andrew Luck and WR T.Y. Hilton connected on three touchdown passes from 10, 9, and 59 yards  in the second half, and Luck's two-point conversion to Coby Fleener  sealed the 27-24 victory for the Colts.

 

Fortunately this afternoon's game is being played inside the dry, comfortable, home field and Colts fans advantage of LOS, and help raise and confine  the crowd noise during the game.  Clear and partly cloudy skies at 20 degrees, with a wind chill of 7 degrees is forecast outside the stadium for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 77% humidity, 0% precipitation, and western winds at 14 miles per hour.

 

Colts are wearing their traditional blue jerseys and white pants on the field, while the Texans are wearing their white jerseys, and dark blue navy pants.

 

NO injuries to both the Colts, and Texans, but let's see our Colts go back not only to defeating the Texans this afternoon, but also try to pursue a home game in Indianapolis during the upcoming NFL Playoffs.  GO COLTS!!!!!    :cheer:  :rock:  :coltslogo:   :1colts:   :colts:  :coltshorse:  :coltshelmet:  :blueshoe:  :cheer:  :coltslogo:     :D

    • I was thinking about this yesterday, and I think it's actually essential that the Colts sign a tackle in FA. They don't need to spend big, but finding a league average guy for like 1/$8m would be fantastic.   The Colts definitely also need to address tackle in the draft. However, if they go into the draft without a league average tackle, they have to take one with pick 21 (or trade back slightly and take one with the new pick). Even if s great player falls there - Kwitty Paye, one of the good corners or receivers, etc. - they'll be forced to pass on them and take a tackle because they have nothing else there.   If someone like AV is signed, a league average starter would already be in place, and you would have maximum flexibility to take whoever you want with pick 21.   If it's a non-tackle that you can't pass on, you can take him. If it's a tackle that you want, you can take him and actually have depth at tackle for a change. If you are comfortable trading back and still taking a tackle later, you can do that too. 
    • This.   People are placing far too much stock in the cliche that guards are less valuable. The average guard is less valuable than the average tackle, but the best guard in the league is way more valuable than like 90% of the NFL.
    • It’s really not though. Luck was great, but it’s not like he was Mahomes setting the league on fire. He never had a QBR above 66 during those (3) seasons. And his best season (prior to 2018) was actually 2016...and the Colts went 8-8.   It’s a team sport. Watson was a top 3-5 QB this past season and his team won 4 games. Stafford has a losing record in his career. Great QB play is the most important thing...but it doesn’t win 11 games on its own. So I disagree that Luck was dragging those teams to 11-win seasons. And I know that’s not what you said...but I see this argument quite often. And it’s disingenuous at best.    They were good teams. They beat other really good teams as well, including in the playoffs where Luck was less than stellar (to put it politely).    And to be fair, Ballard’s only playoff win (in 4 seasons as GM) was with Luck at QB. So it’s not like he has truly separated himself in that regard (at least from a playoff standpoint). If the Colts don’t win a playoff game this season, that will be his 5th season (the same number Grigson had).
