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.

    • Well if we keep 3 QBs then whoever is better in camp/training can be the back up.
    • I have no idea what to do with measurements and athletic testing from players this year. Do you ignore them altogether? How do you know which ones are real'ish?      
    • In reality they are probably right to point out that most GMs in the league don't have long enough track record to be free of small sample bias one way or the other. It's very likely if you gave every GM 100 drafts, their draft success will tend to converge toward the average. BTW, I wonder where Grigson would be on those graphs. I would guess pretty high thanks to drafting Luck and TY Hilton(similar to HOU in this graph thanks to Deshaun Watson). Just another reminder that even though those graphs might be useful in some cases you have to keep in mind their limitations and biases.
    • Doug...  these anti-Watson rants have gone from bad to worse.   Other posters here have noted you make it sound personal.   You have mischaracterized most everything that has happened.   Watson has a lot of support around the NFL.   I’d say far more support than dont.   I don’t pretend to know how this is going to finish?   But I hope you can lower the temperature here...   I don’t think it’s helpful.   Just my two cents...     
    • Yeah, if Miller or Haeg had the WHOLE resume and the talent of Godwin maybe we should. Worth pointing out that this was probably the worst stretch of Godwin's career (and it was mainly thanks to drops). I think he had like 7 drops in the playoffs while never having more than 2 in a whole season previously. I would personally consider that a freaky happenstance, and trust the much bigger sample of him being a very reliable catcher of the football. Also, it's not me that's taken it here. YOU just did.   I've already pointed out several times that this is NOT my 'take', but rather a guess on part of the explanation on the Bucs place in those graphs. So why do you keep going with this? At this point I am considering this bad faith exchange on your part. On the second part - yes, it would have to be taken in consideration(if they were up for trade and tied in similar contracts, rather than Godwin being a FA). BTW Godwin is one of the players we should consider breaking Ballard's bank on this FA. Insert Whynothaveboth.gif Agree with this. Evans is both better and more valuable than Godwin. Worth pointing out that both Superbowl teams had premier pass catching weapons as it relates to our discussion on the value of the position.
