Colts Vs. Redskins Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Thanks for coming online for Colts NFL Game Day, Colts fans!  :)  Our 7-4 and AFC South leading Indianapolis Colts continue their course to clinch the AFC South title for the third  straight season, as they host the visiting, and 3-8  Washington Redskins, in an NFC East interdivisional battle.  Indianapolis must win today to ensure, and maintain their one-game lead in the AFC South over the Houston Texans, who are hosting the Tennessee Titans at the same time.

 

Colts and QB Andrew Luck, would play opposite the Redskins QB, Colt McCoy, who is the third Redskin QB to start after Washington's Head Coach Jay Gruden decided to bench second-year QB Robert Griffin III this week.

 

Both the Indianapolis  and Washington  are playing in their 32nd all-time regular season meeting this afternoon, with the Colts leading the all-time series 19-12-0, the rivalry that began when both teams were together in the NFL, with the Redskins defeating the Colts in the first game  at Baltimore's Memorial Stadium 38-14, back on September 17, 1950. Colts also has outscored the Redskins 773 points to 651 in the previous 31 games.

 

Indianapolis is on a two-game winning streak over Washington,, defeating the Redskins at the RCA Dome by the score of 36-22, played at the RCA Dome on October 22, 2006. Colts later, and again,  defeated the Redskins at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, by the score of 27-24, on October 17, 2010.

 

Today is also the return of former Colt wide receiver Pierre Garcon, who served his first four NFL years with Indianapolis.

 

LOS's roof will be closed to keep everyone dry and warm, because the game forecast outside the stadium area in Downtown Indianapolis for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff is cloudy skies at 63 degrees, 0% precipitation, and south/southwestern winds at 14 miles per hour.

 

Visiting Redskins are wearing their white jerseys, and gold pants, while the host Colts are wearing their traditional blue jerseys, and white pants.

 

Both the Colts and Redskins, and the rest of the NFL teams playing today and tonight, may wear authentic camouflaged-colored authentic NFL apparel and equipment, to conclude the NFL's 'Salute To Service' campaign, to honor all our soldiers serving the US military and it's braches, active and retired, past and present, in Military Appreciation Month in November.

 

NO further injuries, continue to stay Colts Strong, and GO COLTS!!!!!   :cheer:  :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :helmet:  :blueshoe:  :coltshorse:  :coltslogo:  :cheer:  :D

I can see it now...The Colts, up by 18, with 5 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. The Skins bring in RG3, who leads the Skins to a come-from-behind victory, giving Skip Bayless more chances to say RG3 is better than Andrew Luck....(SARCASM PEOPLE..LOL).

 

Seriously..Boom goes for 100 yards and a TD (busting 1 for at least 50 yards), TY gets 2 more TD balls for little GG, and the Colts romp to a lopsided victory...

Hopefully our O-line can protect Luck today and make some good holes for the running backs. I just saw some reporter on ESPN say how bad the Colts defense is. Why is that ??? I think we're pretty fair.  GO COLTS !!!  OK, off we go to Indy. See ya at the game !

Our Offense should be on the field the majority of the game, running well.  Look for a lopsided time of possession.

We win easily going away.  Heck, we may even end up with Matt at QB.

I now feel less about this game being a trap game than I did earlier in the week.  Just my gut...

Go COLTS!  All day, every day!

Afternoon all, here's opening for a strong colts showing. To think I'd pencilled this in 2012 as one of our biggest games this season. Just shows how quick things change in the NFL.

    • It's funny, Luck's two highest passing games last year were against Houston.  It seems like Reich and Sirianni have Crennel's D figured out pretty well.
    • The chiefs might worry more about his ankle.
    • Don't forget the lack of touch on his passes.   But I guess that would be included in "etc.."    Too many flaws to list them all!    He's not the perfect, mistake-free QB yet, ........ ......but I'm sure you will let us know when he gets there!
    • And I feel like he and Braden Smith work well together on the right side with stunts. They seem to communicate well and play well off each other which is huge for an OL.    Unless there is an obvious upgrade available in the 4/5th round range in the 2020 draft, I'd say we should be good at starting RG. We should still add better depth on the OL though, especially at OT. 
    • Glow is struggling a bit with the new coach's philosophy and technique.  He still seems good in a phone booth but when he has to move first to engage is where he seems to be struggling to get proper position on the defender.   A couple of examples.  I think it was against the Raiders the DT lined up on Glow's right shoulder, the play called for Glow to get to the defenders left shoulder but Glow over extended himself and did not stay square to the LOS.  The result was the DT, looped towards Glow's left shoulder and got in the backfield nearly untouched.   On another play, the blocking called for Glow and Smith to crash left but there was a DT directly over glow, a near impossible distance to Smith to cover.  Glow's technique should have been to extend his arm while moving to the left to slow the guy over him and give Smith a chance to get into position.  But again, Glow turned his body too far and did not even attempt to get a hand on the DT.  The result was the guy Smith as supposed to get blew the play up in the backfield.   Another issue that Glow is having to deal with is teams are not lining someone over Nelson very often, so they shift towards the offensive right side so Kelly got not help with Glow as much as he did last year.   Lastly, a lot of the technique in this blocking scheme requires excellent balance and playing with the ball of the foot and heel being in contact with the ground at the same time.  And Glow seems to be thinking a lot about his body position and foot placement, so his mirroring ability and hand placement are suffering.
