Colts Vs. Panthers Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

Welcome back to Indianapolis Colts football, everybody! :smile: Let's hope the past bye week has helped our Colts prepare themselves as they try to win games the rest of this season, but also be in position to play spoilers, and have the grit to defeat their remaining opponents who may be in contention in reaching the NFL playoffs before the end of the regular season.

Colts might have their best chance to finally win their first game of the 2011 NFL regular season, as they play #1 NFL Draft Pick Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. :panthers: Panthers are the last NFC South interdivisional opponent the Colts are scheduled to play this season, and Carolina has a 2-8 record, along with the Rams and the Vikings. Colts should also have an extra advantage since today's game is also being played at LOS.

Colts though must overcome the Panthers offense, as they are currently ranked #5 overall in the NFL, despite their 2-8 record, and the Colts are next to last in both total offense, and rushing defense at #31.

Indianapolis is also seeking to avoid their first 0-11 start since their 1986 NFL season, and at the same time continue Carolina's 12 game regular season road losing streak. Colts are also 13-9 coming off their bye week, as they defeated the Houston Texans from their bye week last season 30-17 at LOS back on Monday Night, November 1, 2010.

Today will be the fifth regular season meeting between the teams, with the Panthers currently leading 3-1. Carolina won the first three games of the series before Peyton Manning and the Colts defeated the Panthers 31-7 at Charlotte back on October 28, 2007.

Chris Myers and Tim Ryan will announce the live TV commentary, along with sideline reporter Jamie Maggio, for the NFL On FOX, seen regionally in North and South Carolina, Evansville, Indiana, and in Indianapolis on WXIN FOX 59 live on HD.

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' and Wil Wolford will also announce the live game radio commentary, along with sideline reporter Kevin Lee, simulcast on Colts flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, WLHK Country 97.1FM, and the Colts Radio Network.

LOS's roof should be closed to protect both the fans and players for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff. Local forecast outside the stadium at gametime is rainy and wet at 48 degrees, feels like 44 degrees, 78% precipitation, 86% humidity, and mild northwest winds at 9 miles per hour.

Colts will dress in their usual blue home jerseys and white pants, while the visiting Panthers will dress in their matching road white jerseys, and silver pants.

We would like to see NO injuries to our Colts players, as they follow their game plan, and try to persistently win their first game of their 2011 season! GO COLTS!!!!! :cheer::coltshelmet::coltslogo::colts::coltsfb::blueshoe::coltshelmet:

@ LucasOilStadium You are so good at starting game day threads and also providing so much information at the same time.

I would probably just post something like:

I am starting this thread so we can discuss the Colts/Panthers game.

Thank you. :thanks: I really appreciate all the effort you put into starting these threads.

    • I would have no problem with that.  That’s the problem when two sides both love something sometime neither get as much as they should.  
    • I have no problem with it as it was a nice tribute. I can also appreciate a guy that likes NFL history , particularly the old Baltimore Colts. Even though the franchise is no longer located in Baltimore , there were great memories and history made there. The old Baltimore Colts of that era were as iconic as the Brooklyn Dodgers. A lot of great football history went down between 1958-1971.  I wish Irsay and Bisciotti would get together and hang those old Championship banners in Baltimore and Indy. It would be a nice tribute to those old players who are left, or even their kids or grandkids.  The weird thing is because of the aftermath of the move, the franchise history is in Indy , the Super Bowl 5 trophy is in Baltimore , and the banners are nowhere to be seen. Long overdue to change the latter. 
    • I simply think they got too cute with draft picks outside of Turay. Turay was actually seen as a better run stopper than pass rusher in college, so I still hope he can be a 3 down guy. Lewis was a tweener, Banogu was just a raw guy that lacked technique (due to scheme he came from), and the whole SAM stuff was a stretch from the start.   You also have to consider we blitz less than most in the NFL. So they're expecting the DL to get home without much help. I don't know if that's Flus, or Reich's conservative nature. Flus was much more aggressive in Dallas.
    • Yeah trades at the deadline are either teams getting rid of players to go full rebuild or to go all in on winning it this year.  I don’t think the a Colts fit either of those.
    • Personally, I think Mack going down early in week 1 changed the game plan.   Also, aside from the 2 bad interceptions, Rivers was very efficient passing vs. Jax.  Before he got hurt (I think it was the 4th offensive drive - TD drive 1, Hines got stopped on 4th and 1 at Jax 3 drive 2, Rivers threw pick drive 3) Mack was very effective as a runner and receiver out of the backfield.  The missed FG, getting stuffed on 4th and 1 deep in Jax territory on our 2nd drive and costly interceptions certainly didn't help, as it allowed Jax to stay in the game and then take a lead.  Had we gotten that 4th and 1 we could have easily been looking at 14-0 after our 2nd drive (or if we kicked the FG, 10-0).  The 3rd drive, Rivers threw a pick which gave Jax a 27 yard field to work with and they scored to tie it 7-7 -- all the sudden, we're looking at a tied ball game instead of a 14-0 game.  I'm  not sure how much trust the coaching staff had in Taylor week 1 into his rookie season without having a preseason, but my guess is that if we got up 14-0 or 21-0 we would've ran a lot more (if Mack didn't get hurt, I also think we would've stayed with the run a bit more).  We were pretty balanced the first two drives.  Also, it was week 1 -- now everyone knows the Jags don't really have a good run D, but that wasn't such an easy assessment with no tape from this year available on them that first week.   I'm with you though, other than the NYJ game, we haven't really been balanced on O.  It'd be nice to get more of a balance during the final stretch.
