Colts @ Chiefs Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Welcome back to Colts NFL Gameday, Colts fans!     :)   Our AFC North Division Champions and 9-5  Indianapolis Colts will try to both win their tenth regular season game in 2013, and solidify a home game in the upcoming playoffs, as they are at the Kansas City, Missouri, area to play the greatly improved and 11-3 Chiefs. Chiefs are  the NFL team with the most season improvement in wins, winning only two in all of 2012.


Cloudy skies at 22 degrees, with a wind chill of 9 degrees is the game forecast inside Arrowhead Stadium at the Harry S. Truman Sports Complex at Independence, Missouri, along with  77% humidity, 0% precipitation, and north/northwest winds at 14 miles per hour, for the  1:05 Eastern Standard Time kickoff.


NO injuries, and wish both the Colts and Chiefs players play safely as they compete on the cold elements on the playing field.


Stay Colts Strong, and also wish the Colts to over come the very noisy fan environment, and the cold, throughout this afternoon's game. We hope Coach Chuck Pagano and his Colts coaching staff, and Andrew Luck and his Colts teammates can pull the upset today in KC,


I also want to state to everyone here on the Official Colts Strong Fan Forum to all the registered users, and fellow members and moderators, Merry Christmas, Seasons Greetings, and Happy Holidays, to all your family, friends and loved ones on this holiday season!    GO COLTS!!!!!     :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :blueshoe:  :coltshorse:  :coltsfb:  :coltslogo:   :D

Must win the turnover margin to get a W today,.

Agree 100% here.  Big key to the game.

45 mins until game time.  Nice and warm here in the northeast.  Hopefully we get

a good performance in the cold.  It may be a tune-up for the playoffs!


Go COLTS!  All day, every day!

    • We were discussing the overreaction to the tweet not the play         
    • My God, you're right...   It's a conspiracy, man.   If Reich know tha hez company loyal to stand by the nonsense and the obvimously lack of talent an holes on diz roster then then he knows that if he shows JB can't reaf his progrezions den the opposing teams will have the advantage! Reich try to tank for a top 10 pick! We all know it!   BACK TO THE PILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!               *I lost today's internal battle, because of my brother to the north... A certain south park song I am dieing to use as justification
    • If VM is saying it, it's likely because he's parroting what management is saying. Not saying it's not true, or true, just saying there's always a narrative. 
    • The lack of light front carries is either play calling, or JB's choice. Light front carries may also be down simply because of down and distance when facing light fronts. I'm guessing this goes at least partly to JB's struggles with reading Ds.   And using "stacked box" stats are very imperfect. It's not always about what how many are in the box, it's what those guys do when the ball is snapped. The stacked box stat typically only measures 8+ defenders in the box at the time of snap. What it doesn't tell you is what the front seven does. Do the LBs play the run or go into coverage is the more accurate measurement, along with how much nickel and dime coverage you see.    If I were a D vs JB, I'd go standard package (no nickel/dime) most of the time, and have the LBs play run or shallow crossing, which is what we are generally seeing. 4 DBs on standard downs is sufficient vs our current O.  I'm going to say Reich and JB are making it more predictable. If the passing game is more successful, and the play calling isn't as conservative, we're not having this problem at all. Like I said in a previous post, very few team have RB1s that are dynamic in both running and passing. And honestly that's not Reich's O. Mack is 12 of 14 (yes only 14), so he's been very reliable. It's more lack of targets and play calling if anything.  He is an APB. An APB does not run it between the tackles often, and that's what Reich typically calls for him... An APB is a change of pace back that is usually more edge, sweep, receiving,  and gimmicky. I'd say his "average" play, is a product of use type. White rushing is 32 attempts for 104 yards, and a 3.3 average. Hines is 22 for 66 and 3.0 with mostly between the T rushes. Last year with Luck, Hines was 85/315 and 3.7 rushing.... do you see the difference....  Yes it's rare to have a stud #1 RB that excels in both. I think we are under utilizing Mack in the passing game, and I think Hines is hampered by both rush play calling, and by JB in the passing game. That's what they numbers suggest anyway.
