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.

    • LOL. I'm not saying college is comp to NFL. What I am saying is if you're trying to gauge his ability to play vs tougher  or elite competition, Bama's D was tops in college for many of those years. I'm not saying his O in college could compete with NFL teams. I'm saying Bama had some of the best talent in college, and for instance, that would translate into increased pressure, tighter windows, etc....   And HS to College really isn't a good comp either. I played for a HS that won state twice while I was there. I had no delusions of them competing against a college team. I might take LSU or OSU over the Bengals this year though lol.
    • This mischaracterizes the issue in its entirety.  Just because it takes a long time for QBs to find generational talents at QB is not a reason they shouldn't try to get better at the position if the team doesn't have a generational talent at QB.  Bill Belichick has had Brady for the past 20 years and he's still drafted a QB every other year.  In the past 10 years, he's drafted 3 QBs in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.     It seems as though what you have in mind is teams selling the farm to trade up and take the #1 QB in the class at #1.  There are so many other viable ways ot get franchise QBs better than the one we have.  If we used a 2nd or 3rd on a QB, could it be the next Drew Brees or Russel Wilson?  Maybe.  But even if it's not and he sits a year and then ends up being better than Brissett, that's a win.  We can try again in another year or two.  You should always try to improve your roster and add valuable depth, no matter what the position is.     Yeah, we have a mediocre QB.  We should still be using higher draft capital and perhaps trading up in cases where it makes sense.  
    • At least he would add to the running game.  But still, no thanks. I'll take our chances in the draft.
    • I bet Irsay is already working on the paperwork to rename Lucas Oil to Okereke Stadium.   This thread title nominated for hottest take of the year.
    • My own experiences in the world of football are what make it really hard for me to accept any sort of comp like this... If youll allow me to be "that guy" for a moment to explain...   I was a part of a 4 time repeating 5A state championship IHSAA program... technically only 3 of those... the first one was when I was in 8th grade lol...   But Ill use the last of the 4 peat teams- 2007- as my example...   That team was LOADED with D1 NCAA talent... there were more than 12 players that signed day 1 of national signing day...   I figured that, that team would stack up, and beat, most college teams...   After graduating HS, I went to be an on scholarship coach at a prominent NAIA school in the state...   Day 1 of Spring Training Observations...   This small, NAIA school... would WIPE THE FLOOR with my old HS teams... even if taking just the best players from each year to make 1 team... The NAIA school still wins. No question...   Now thats just NAIA... D2 and D1 schools made my NAIA school look like my old HS teams...   ...   So I get it... Bama is a huge program that gets many players ready to produce at the NFL level...   But there is still a jump up the ladder in comp...    And college success DOES NOT AT ALL mean that an individual player is a lock to ball out because of what they did at the level below...   TED talk is over... Thank you for listening    Edit to add clarity... I know you said may not translate not will translate... so please dont think the end of my ted talk is implying you said something you did not lol
