Colts Vs. Saints Preseason Game Night Thread

Recommended Posts

Greetings for another Colts NFL Game Night, Colts fans!  :)   A rematch of Super Bowl XLIV (44) as our Indianapolis Colts are featured in primetime, hosting  the  New Orleans Saints, at the LOS.  :nfl: Saints though defeated our Colts 31-17 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami back on February 7, 2010.

 

Saints and Colts are also playing a preseason game for the first time both at LOS, and at Indianapolis since 1991. tonight's is also the 13th preseason meeting, with the Colts leading the series 7 games to 5.

 

Saints though also lead the all-time regular season series 7 games to 5, with the Colts last win back on Opening Week in 2007, when the Peyton Manning-led  Colts defeated the Drew Brees-led Saints 41-10 at the Hoosier Dome, back on September 6, 2007.  Saints also outscored the Colts in those previous 12 regular season games by 282 points to 261 points

 

Colts are also seeking both their first preseason win in 2014, but also their first home win at LOS tonight.

 

Brooklyn Nets and New York Jets preseason TV broadcaster Ian Eagle, along with former San Diego Charger QB Dan Fouts, are announcing the live TV game play-by-play and game analysis, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Jenny Dell, for The NFL On CBS, televised nationally thoughout the USA, including locally on WISH CBS Channel 8, live on HD.

 

Our 'Voice Of The Colts,' Bob Lamey, and Jim Sorgi are also announcing the live radio game commentary, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Matt Taylor, simulcast  on flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WHLK Hank Country 98.1FM, and The Colts/Vectren Radio Network.

 

LOS roof should be closed for tonight's 8:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, to both keep everyone inside dry, and the crowd noise inside, because outside in Downtown Indianapolis, mostly cloudy skies at 81 degrees, feels like 81 degrees, is the local forecast, along with 83% humidity, 20% precipitation, and mild east/northeast winds at 4 miles per hour.

 

Saints are wearing the white jerseys, and gold pants, while the host Colts are wearing their home blue jerseys, and white pants.

 

NO injuries to all the players as they continue to audition for roster spots for the upcoming regular season.  Both the Colts and the Saints, and all NFL teams. must reduce the rosters from 90, to 75 players, in the first mandatory cut down.

 

Continue to stay both Colts Strong, and Chuck Strong, throughout your 2014 NFL season, and in front of a national TV audience, and GO COLTS!!!!    :cheer:  :coltslogo:  :colts:  :1colts:  :coltsfb:  :coltshorse:  :helmet:  :blueshoe:    :coltslogo:   :cheer:  :D

Amped for this one.....or is it nerves.....anyway, I wanna see what we got. They giving our 1st unit (or we earned) a top 5 overall DEF ranking so far this preseason, then they backhand us by saying Jets and Giants are trash. Tonight.....there will be no excuses. When we lock up NO's run and get in Drew's face, then they can run and tell that.

I do hope to see the saints get destroyed in this game just because surely all of you remember what the saints did to our colts back in 2011 in NO 62-7 the saints need a piece of their own medicine tonight and its payback time.

Interested to see if our D is the real deal. They've been great the first 2 games, but that was against the Jets & Giants... not quite two power house offenses. Should be interesting. No injuries please!


 


GO COLTS!

Does anyone know what the average temp inside the stadium is? Kinda wondering what to expect at a night game. Rain is going thru the area, so the roof should be closed tonight.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
