Colts Vs. Titans Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Thanks for coming  for NFL Game Day, Colts fans!  :)   Our Indianapolis Colts have a chance to even their  regular season record to 2-2 and .500 this afternoon as they host the 1-2 Tennessee Titans at LOS (the building) this afternoon.  Colts finally won their first game overall in 2014 last week when they defeated   at the Jacksonville Jaguars, while then Titans lost 33-7  last Sunday at Cincinnati.

 

Charlie Whitehurst is starting at QB for the Titans in place of incumbent  Jake Locker, who suffered a wrist injury.  Titans are also overcoming the surprise tragedy of their former kicker Rob Bironus, who died in an auto accident.  Last Friday was also the two-year anniversary of Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano admittance to the hospital to cure his leukemia, and the beginning of the Chuck Strong campaign. Current Arizona Cardinals Head Coach  Bruce Arians took leadership as the Colts interim Head Coach leading the Colts in the sidelines, during  Coach Pagano's absence in the 2012 season.

 

Today is also the 40th all-time regular-season meeting between the Colts and the Titans. Colts lead the all-time regular season series 25 games to 14, a rivalry that begin when the Baltimore Colts defeated the Houston Oilers 24-20 at the Astrodome after the AFL-NFL merger way back on October 11, 1970.

 

Colts have also  won 10 of the last 11 regular season games over the Titans since 2008, the only blemish a 27-10 Titans win back on October 10, 2011, and are also on a current five-game winning streak over Tennessee. 

 

Kevin Harlan and former NFL QB Rich Gannon are announcing the live TV game commentary for The NFL On CBS, seen regionally in the USA including KREM Channel 2 in Spokane, WA, and locally in Indianapolis on WISH-TV CBS Channel 8, all stations seen live on HD.

 

Bob Lamey. our 'Voice Of The Colts,' and former NFL Colts and N.Y. Giants QB Jim Sorgi are announcing the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Matt Taylor, simulcast on flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WLHK Country 97.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network.

 

LOS's roof may be closed to keep everyone cool inside for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because clear and partly skies is the local game time forecast at 77 degrees, 39% precipitation , 0% humidity, and very mild northeast winds at 2 miles per hour.

 

Colts are wearing their traditional blue jerseys and white pants, while the visiting Titans are wearing their white jerseys, and sky blue pants.

 

NO further injuries to both the Colts and Titans. Stay both Colts Strong and Chuck Strong, win your second straight game, and GO COLTS!!!!!    :rock:  :cheer:  :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshorse:  :coltslogo:   :cheer:  :D

Predictions; Our reinvigorated run game continues into this week.

 

We feast on multiple turnovers. 

 

Luck plays a spotless game, getting Nicks and Wayne more involved.

Mod note for post-game threads: many people aren't too fond of these post-game threads, so we are going to try to change things up.  The post-game threads will NOT be created by mods after the game.  Members are free to make their own threads after the game about whatever topics they like.  However, locking and merging threads may still occur if deemed necessary by the mods (for example, 1 line vent threads or threads of similar topics).  During the game, those 1 line vent threads will also be locked, but threads that are more conducive to discussion (for example, a player getting injured) will be left open.  Please PM a mod if there are any questions.

It's always a bit nerve racking during the early part of a game when playing an unknown quantity at QB... But heck this is in Lucas Oil! Let's get Reggie and T.Y. going today!

I think Locker's time in Tennessee is limited.  He hasn't been able to stay healthy and he wasn't picked by the current coaching staff

It was a make or break season and unfortunately it's Locker who broke..

I tend to agree esp. Since they signed Whitehurst and drafted Mettenbergerf

    • Nice thread...    There have been some arguments for a while now about the relative value of pass-coverage vs pass-rush. Teams offensively are turning to faster and faster game plans and this affects the pass-rush a ton. You can practically scheme the pass-rush away if you have good enough QB and receivers that get open quickly. The latest advanced analytics seem to favor positions like CB and WR value-wise over long-held champions like EDGE rushers or OTs. I will also take into account your characterization of the rest of the roster(average players as opposed to straight up trash). At some positions the improvement between pro-bowler and average/JAG is higher than at other positions. Those are just part of the considerations that will inform my choise here:   Offense:   1. QB: not controversial take here - most important position of all... he handles the ball and makes a decision that might affect the game pretty much 100% of the snaps. I want the best passer and decisionmaker to run my offense.    2. WR: yep, give me a beast of an X-receiver. Pass-catchers are incredibly important.   3. LT: Yeah, I know, this goes against some of the things I said above, but time and time again we see what a great LT does to an offensive line. Leremy Tunsil is not even that great and he almost single-handedly turned around the HOU OLine. Same with AC last year - we missed him mightily when he was injured to start the year and then turned the line into a great unit. And again - he's not even at the level we are talking here. He still has not had a pro-bowl or all-pro recognition(maybe he gets one this year, he deserves it). But yeah... give me Bakhtiari, give me Armstead, give me Tyron Smith level player... I think this raises the level of the whole O-Line, especially if it's filled with average players at the other positions(rather than horrible ones)   ------------------------------------ Those will be my selections offensively. I think a QB masks a lot of deficiencies and I think he elevates average players and squeezes everything out of most of them. Just look at what Luck used to do with players like Jack Doyle, Donte Moncrief, Eric Ebron, Inman, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen...    Defense:   4. CB: yep, I want a shut down corner. Like I said earlier, newest research shows pass-coverage and especially on the boundary is paramount. and it affects pass-rush more than pass-rush affects CB play.    5. CB: yep, give me one more... I'm shutting down both sides of the field and hoping this gives additional time to my pass-rush to get there. They will play on island and I will scheme out everything else(i.e. slot receivers and TEs)... if I have to I will double away from them.    6. WILL: I want a sideline to sideline monster to clean up the run game and take on crossing routes in the short-intermediate middle in coverage.     7. EDGE: I still want a player capable of beating his man one-on-one on the line and creating pressure/affecting the pass when my pro-bowl CBs lock down their match ups.    So what do you think? Does it make sense?
