Colts @ Browns Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Welcome back for NFL Game Day, Colts Nation!   :)  Our 8-4, first place, and AFC South leading Indianapolis Colts are in Cleveland to play a regular season road game for the first time  in 8 years. This afternoon is also return by current Colts running back Trent Richardson to Cleveland, since the trade from the Browns to the Colts last season.

 

Colts defeated the Browns in their last visit in Cleveland back on November 30, 2008.  Colts kicker Adam Vinetieri kicked a 30-yard field goal in the first quarter, then LB Robert Mathis scored on a 37-yard fumble return, along with a Vinetieri PAT, to seal the 10-6 victory.

 

Indianapolis and Cleveland are playing each other in their 33th all-time meeting today., after playing 28 regular season and 4 postseason games.  Browns though, still leads the series 17-15 entering today, and has also outscored the Colts in the previous 32 games 647 points to 577.

 

Cleveland won the first seven games of the series, since the rivalry began when the Browns shut out the Baltimore Colts 28-0 back on September 21, 1947.  Colts finally won their first game over the Browns 10 years later, winning 21-7 at Cleveland Municipal Stadium, back on November 11, 1956.

 

Today's Colts @ Browns game will also be televised on The NFL On Fox.  Fox College Sports football and basketball announcer, and MLB On Fox studio host Kevin Burkhardt, and former Buccaneers and Broncos defensive back John Lynch, are announcing the live TV game commentary, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Pam Oliver, are the crew for the NFL On FOX's early primary double header game, seen regionally and locally on WXIN Fox Channel 59, seen live on HD.

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' former Colt, N.Y. Giants, and Wisconsin Badger QB Jim Sorgi, are also announcing the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Matt Taylor. simiulcast on WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WHLK 97.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network.

Need to find a pass rush today since our coverage is sorely depleted. We can do this though, it will have to be a big team effort. This could turn out to be a shootout in the end.

Go COLTS! All day, every day!

How long before we see Johnny Football?

Just have a gut feeling we won't see him today.  I think they stay close the whole game.

 

We HAVE to get rid of those first possession turnovers!!

If the trend continues Hoyer will negate any turnover we have

    • Rivers defeats Chiefs in 2018 at KC with a huge comeback and 2 point conversion. Mahomes and the Chiefs were 100% healthy.
    • Using the Brissett Standard   1: Didn't get rid of the ball fast enough.  Gotta get that out of your hands faster. 2: There were at least 2 open receivers that he completely failed to see and instead forced a throw to the guy in coverage 3: Gets spooked by the rush on the blind side and throws a wounded duck that a 6 year old could have intercepted 4: Absolutely clean pocket.  They were only down 7 with 4 minutes to play.  Why are you going that deep out of a clean pocket with 2 guys wide open past the yellow line?   Using the Common Sense Standard   1: #25 missed his blocking assignment, should have been doubling with #79 to block the edge rusher 2: #79 was again overpowered, forcing Rivers to make a hasty throw, and the DB was baiting the throw and ready to jump the lain, which Rivers didn't have time to spot before he had to get the ball out of his hand.  More "good defense" than "bad offense" there IMHO.  Again, the running back is trying to get open when he should be helping his left guard. 3: #79 had a lot more to do with that pick than Rivers did, once again getting completely overpowered and forcing a hasty throw.  Again, at this point I have to blame the OC, #79 clearly needs help and just as clearly isn't getting it.  4: Left Guard is finally getting help, running back (not #25, he seems to have been benched) stays in to block, and the pocket stays clean enough that Rivers has a good opportunity to throw.  He makes a bad decision, trying to do too much with open guys for shorter throws and gets picked.    This is the first one I can say is 100% on Rivers.  There's no reason to make that throw, what you need to do in that situation is march down the field, the defense is going to concentrate on not letting you have exactly that throw, leaving open men in shorter distances.  This is basically Tom Brady's strategy in every close and late situation, but as is rather painfully obvious, Rivers is no Brady.   Once again spotlight on #25 who is absolutely not even trying to be a running back in this formation.  He takes a worthless position again and again, then breaks late to get open while the left guard is getting bull rushed, he is doing nothing useful while the pocket falls apart.   At this point any competent head coach would be tearing #25 a new one in the film room, he NEEDS to be helping the left guard!
    • I think it would be the most fair way of doing it.   Without a 2020 season, there would be no way to rank teams.  The Colts would have a 1/32 chance at getting the number 1 pick.  
    • Another thing that Ballard does relatively regularly is - he identifies weak spots and then doubles and triples on them in the off-season in an attempt to fix them(OL, LB...). He seems to be a fan of the philosophy of the more shots at a target, the higher the chance you hit. When leaving his press-conference he said to the gathered journalists "you all ask me about the WRs, and I'm much more focused on the trenches" so... After the trade for Buckner the mock drafts giving us a DT high in the draft have been few and far between... so... here's another unexpected/surprising one from me - we get a DT on day 2... one of the Ross Blacklock, Justin Madubuike, Jordan Elliot, Neville Gallimore, Marlon Davidson group of R2 DTs.     
    • I think it would be treated like the supplemental draft in terms of draft position.  You stay where you are.  Colts would have the 13th pick.
