Colts @ Jaguars Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Happy Holidays again and also Happy New Year to everyone here on the Colts Fan Forum! :) But not as entirely happy to all Colts fans today as our Indianapolis Colts conclude their disappointing 2011 NFL regular season, in the beginning of another calendar year in 2012 , and in New Years Day as they are in Northeast Florida to play the Jacksonville Jaguars. :jags: Colts are well rested after playing their last game in Indianapolis ten days ago back on Thursday Night, December 22, and hope to end their season in a florish by winning their third straight game over the Jaguars. A win over Jacksonville today would also mean defeating each of their AFC South rivals in their last three regular season games in a two-week period, have earlier defeated the Tennessee Titans 27-13 on December 18, and later the AFC South Champions Houston Texans 19-16 three nights later, both games played at LOS.

Colts are also competing with the St. Louis Rams for the #1 overall pick in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft in late April. However, a Colts win over the Jaguars, and a Rams loss to the visiting San Francisco 49ers could mean the Rams would instead be awarded the top overall pick instead. In that scenario, Rams might not draft Andrew Luck since they already drafted Sam Bradford in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Jaguars defeated our Colts in the earlier meeting at 17-3 at LOS back on November 13. Colts defense must try to contain Pro Bowler Maurice Jones-Drew again, as he rushed for 114 yards in that game, and is also leading the NFL in rushing with 1,437 yards, despite the Jaguars owning the leagues worst passing offense.

Jaguars are also playing their last game in front of original team owners Wayne and Delores Weaver, who brought the team to Jacksonville in 1995. Shahid Khan will take over ownership of the Jaguars beginning on January 4.

Colts however still leads the all-time regular season series over the Jaguars 15-6 entering today including 7-3 record as the visitor ,a rivalry that started when Indianapolis defeated Jacksonville 41-31 in the Jaguarsinaugural seaon back on December 10, 1995. But the Jaguars also defeated the Colts in their last regular season visit to Jacksonville 31-28 back on October 3, 2010. Colts Head Coach Jim Caldwell also has a 3-2 record over the Jaguars, and Jacksonville has yet to sweep a season series over Indianapolis.

Spero Dedes and Steve Beuerlein will announce for The NFL On CBS, seen regionally, primarily in Indiana, Northern Kentucky, both Jackonville and Gainesville, Florida, and here at Indianapolis at WISH CBS 8 live on HD.

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' and Will Wolford for the final time this season will also announce the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline reporter Kevin Lee simulcast on Colts flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WHNK Country 97.1FM, and the Colts Radio Network.

Local weather conditions at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Florida, for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff is great with Clear and Partly Cloudy skies at 70 degrees, with 10% precipitation, 57% humiditiy, and southwest winds at 7 miles per hour.

Visiting Colts will dress in their matching white road jerseys and pants, while the host Jaguars will wear their teal jerseys, and white pants.

My pleasure both starting the Colts game threads, and also participate in-game with the rest of the registered users this season. Colts have an opportunity to end no better than a 3-13 season, and it was unfortunate Peyton Manning's neck injury, and his absence on the field also affected his teammates, his fans, and this seasons won-loss record. Colts even had an opportunity to host their own Super Bowl in Super Bowl XLVI had Peyton and the Colts as a team were also healthy. Interesting to see what the upcoming NFL Draft and the offseason will bring for the Colts before training camp this summer in 2012.

NO injuries and also silly penalties on the field today. Finish the season strong for yourselves and your fans, to both end your season, and begin the New Year in a positive mode, and GO COLTS!!!!! :cheer: :thmsup: :1colts::colts::coltslogo::coltshorse::coltsfb::helmet::blueshoe::D

And to further the point, Mathis deserved a Pro Bowl spot over Freeney. Not that I'm not happy for Freeney, but Mathis has had a good year.

Is Brady playing? I know he was questionable.

He has to be out. No way the Bills would be up 21.

I like the field announcer's comment before that 4th down play:

"Caldwell is on the sideline staring at it."

I don't think he meant anything by it, but it made me laugh.

Dolphins were up 17-0 at one point last week.

Oh, not really like Brady.

Thanks MP Nation. Wonder how his shoulder is. They're playing for the #1 seed.

    • You all have to quit buying into the "Reich and Ballard love Brissett".  That is talk to make him more valuable as trade bait. My guess is they are holding onto him into preseason in case a team gets an injury and they can trade him.  Evidence?  The Colts signed Philip Rivers.  They were also in discussions to trade for Nick Foles.  They were also reportedly interested in Andy Dalton.  If you "love" a QB so much, you don't look to replace him with at three other QBs from other teams.  And that is just what we know about.   I don't think the Colts lose anything by letting Brissett go and having Eason and Kelly as the backups.  Last year, the Patriots used Stidham as the backup.  Rivers is a very sturdy player.  But even if he got hurt, I doubt that either player would be less effective than Brissett.  Quit throwing out the MVP talk when the Colts were 5-2.  That was all defensive, running attack, and teams not being prepared.  Once there was more film on Brissett, he was toast.  He is indecisive, inaccurate on long throws, and too often looks to dump the ball off.   The two years Brissett was the starting QB for the Colts were two of the most painful years I have ever had watching the Colts.  That was with two different coaching staffs.  They Colts simply couldn't score.  And the one year in between those years, Luck throws 39 TDs.   I hope I never see Brissett in a Colts uniform again.  I would gamble with Eason as a raw rookie over Brissett.  
    • Here's an interesting take on the Pats' cornerback situation in 2019 by a Pats homer. https://www.patspulpit.com/2019/6/14/18678536/slot-cornerback-contracts-proving-bill-belichick-new-england-patriots-genius-coleman-moore   He basically says Belichick's a genius for not paying slot corners big bucks.
    • Yeah, when Spygate happened, Goodell was a fledgling commissioner, more keen to protect the entire league including the Patriots, instead of digging deeper into it. I don't want to rehash everything all over again but the majority owners went a bit light on that front then, I personally believe. 
    • Peyton Manning is still the highest earner in terms of NFLPA royalty earnings, more than active players, I read recently.   Roger Staubach, a while ago, ended up being one of the richest football players alive, mainly because he went into real estate and invested well. It is not the starting seed in the NFL, it is how you do after your playing career is over is what will define how well you have used your money. Plus, with such money, comes the ability to start and fund children's hospitals and other philanthropic ventures you didn't think you could pull off earlier in your career.
