Colts @ Eagles Preseason Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hello, and welcome back for Colts game action because Colts NFL Game Day has finally arrived! Our Indianapolis Colts begin their 2015 preseason schedule, as they are in Philadelphia to play the Eagles, with a 1:05PM kickoff this Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field. Colts will try not to repeat another winless preseason at 0-4, and expectations are high with the additions of formers Texan and 49er Andre Johnson and Frank Gore. Also to see is the on field performance today from the Colts 2015 NFL Draft picks, including Colts Top Pick in 2015, WR Phillip Dorsett from the University Of Miami. Today's game will be nationally televised on The NFL Network (Eagles Network), but Don Fischer and Rick Venturi are announcing the live TV game commentary on WXIN FOX Channel 59, and the Colts Preseason Television Network. NO injuries, as the rookies and reserves audition for roster spots for the regular season, and GO COLTS!!!!!

What I really want to see for the Colts in this preseason is a commitment to the run so everyone can get a good look at who can get that done among our O Linemen. Now obviously we are going to be a pass first team, The strength of our offense dictates that but we still need to practice the run game and get a feel for who has and who has not improved

So glad to hear Don Fischer do the game.  Rick Venturi does excellent analysis.  Best of all we do not need a Philly announcer hyping the Eagles.  They are the worst...except for NY and NE!!  

 

Thanks as usual to Lucas Oil Stadium to get us ready for game day.  Lets see how the youngsters do.  I am interested in Quan Bray and Vincent Brown in relation to Griff Whalen.  Ready for the game....:)

Folks, the Eagles, and many NFL teams during the preseason in August, may elect to wear their white jerseys for game time, to reflect the heat from their uniforms from these hot summer days. Or the Colts might still be allowed to wear their road white jerseys with blue trim. I'm not sure, but wonder if the Colts are wearing their all white jerseys as they have introduced back on April 1.

Here is a reminder

Everything Will Be Okay

 

No way, man...this is do or die right here...if we can't win preseason games, how we gonna win them when they count...? I don't like to say things like this, but if we don't score on our first eight or nine possessions of the game, well, frankly, we're cooked...call in Sorgi, give him the chance that he deserved, see if we have a future starter in him...start auditioning for 2016...

Excited to see what i think is the most talented colts team we've had in Luck's time here so excited to see our defense and see if they can be more of an aggressive force against the run and in all phases really and to see just how unstoppable this loaded offense can be. Also I'm really hoping some of these rookies shine for us and put on a great performance. (draft picks udfa's etc.)

Just remember, we will not be seeing the regulars very much in the preseason.  Coach said you will see a lot of the new faces on the field.

 

A nice article I read was about this is the chance for Adongo to show what he has at the rush.  Our linemen have said he is relentless in practice.....lets see what he can do.

Sheldon Price starts for Vontae Davis according to Stephen Holder he's gonna need to show up if he wants to make the roster over Jalil Brown i've liked Price since we got him as and UDFA coaching staff must like him he's been here for a couple years

 

also doesn't seem like Junior Sylvestre is inactive i know he's been sidelined by a hamstring problem excited to see him play 

 

 

Lastly really hoping Bryan Bennett plays well and can show enough to be Luck's Back-Up of the future

This appears to be the inactive list, Just a shame Ballard is inactive

 

Man that is harsh. Poor Vick, he was so flashy and exciting in his rookie appearances. So much wasted potential. My heart goes out to that young man.

I agree today is the super bowl and if we don't win I'm just going to flat out jump on the Tampa Bay Bucs band wagon!!

    • Was just listening to Dan Dakich.  He brought up the idea that I did earlier.  That this entire ankle/leg issue could be a made up thing just as a way out.   Remember, he was fine after the season ended.  Zero mention of a leg issue . Then he went to Europe, got married, and came back with a 'calf'.    Huh?   Did he stumble and hurt himself walking to the altar?   And everyone who has seen him train this year?  Says he looks fine.  No sign of an injury.  Doctors couldn't figure it out.  Why?  No injury?     Went through those drills last week, looked great, and then he says that he thought it might be his last time on the Lucas Oil stadium field.   Makes zero sense.  Other than this has been in his mind for quite a while.
    • It's not nearly as bad, or as big of deal as you are making it out to be. Even in the stories I have seen and read today it's not getting that much attention.  The Colts not going after the money they could get back is what's getting the press.    The booing won't have any effect on FAs; If anything, the absence of an elite QB will be a bigger issue when it comes to attracting FAs.        
    • Yeah...I shouldn't have said active. I meant games he has appeared in.   But if you just look at active games...he will have played in more than half...which is still pretty incredible for a guy drafted into the situation he was. 
    • I do agree with Jimmy our owner too. Andrew isn't really being selfish when you remember all the millions of dollars he leaving on the table.   If you're heart's not in the game anymore because your body keeps betraying you, I could see why turning the page to something else seems appealing to Luck. You watch his press conference & can't help but feel for the guy & what he's endured since he first got here in 2012. He raves about Mathis, Wayne, Hilton, Adam V. The guy doesn't have a malicious bone in his body man. He loves INDY & her diehard fans. The guy is genuinely broken up emotionally over this decision man. He didn't reach it lightly at all.    The funny thing about rage & anger is this: It's only a burden to those who carry it & refuse to release it & let it go over time. Fans have a right to be upset just remember that no one was hoodwinked, swindled, or lied to here. The situation was abrupt, unexpected, even awkward perhaps, but I honestly don't think this news was withheld on purpose by anybody inside the Colts organization. Life teaches us to adapt all the time. The only constant is change & our organization will handle this change with professionalism, dignity, & a sense of renewed purpose like we always do. 
    • I am pretty sure he was active for all 16 games plus two playoff games last year.
