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.

    • Do you think Bill Belichick has cornered the market on ideas?   Do you think he does not make mistakes?   BB made Dont’a Hightower one of the NFL ‘s highest paid players.  So, poof,  there goes your Leonard argument.  When players perform at a premium level you pay them what they’re worth.   Period.   You’re badly over-thinking this.   There is no perfect formula to a championship.   You think Ballard is not aware that when he pays a guard premium money that means he’ll be paying other positions less than premium.   He 100 percent knows that.     It’s always, Always, ALWAYS better to have too much talent than not enough.  Dallas has paid a fortune into its OL for years.   Smith, Martin, used to have Frederick at Center.  Used to have a good guard who left in FA, and then Collins who is now getting paid.   3 of their 5 getting top money and it used to be 4 before Frederick had to retire early.   They had a top 3 OL for years.   They figured out the rest of the roster.     They’re paying big money while a good number of younger players are on their cheaper rookie contracts.   That’s life for GM’s in the NFL.  Too much talent is always a good thing.    You never take a lesser player who plays a premium position over a much better player at a so-called non-premium position.   Never.   Do you think it’s a coincidence that the play of the Colts OL dramatically improved when Nelson joined the team?   Come on....   Sorry, but your logic is twisted beyond all recognition.     
    • Dang, four playoff spots up got grabs between six teams.  
    • Jag fans would riot..  
    • Colts wearing their color rush 
    • Maybe Nelson plays LT this week and balls out, then the problem is resolved, LOL.    IDK, depends on how the draft goes towards filling the pricey players at LT, DE, WR, and QB.  We might have to let one of Nelson or Leonard go.  We might get a 3rd round comp pick for Nelson's contract, 4th for Leonard's contract, and we could find a ILB in that round.  Don't have to make that decision for a while, and if Ballard can hit on those pricey position draft picks, we could pay both while the youngsters are playing on their rookie deals.   No, I doubt BB would pay either....and would take the comp picks.  But I don't think he is a great drafter given the number of picks he has had over the years.
