Good job tonite overall I think.  Nice to see us come away with the win, but more importantly, a good look as to what to expect during the regular season. Let's keep it going now !!!

What station are you watching on? Those aren't the announcers here. Are you near st louis?

No, east coast, but I was watching on line the game called by Rams hommers. In Indy I know it's been Ron Fisher ( who doesn't know football) and Rick Venturi.

Congratuations  and a great win tonight by our Indianapolis Colts, winning 24-14 at St. Louis, and finally both, ending their seven-game preseason losing streak, and winning their first preseason game in more than two years! :D   Undrafted rookie Tyler Varga may have a shot to make the 53-man regular season roster, with his one yard touchdown run, and Coach Chuck Pagano's decision to go for the two-point conversion paid off when Griff  Whalen also scored in the end zone.  Adam Vinatieri's 55-yard field goal with less than three minuites in the game proved to be the game clincher.

 

Colts now prepare to even their record to 2-2, as they play their annual preseason rivalry, and series with the Cincinnati Bengals southeast Interstate 74, for both teams final preseason finale.  Both the Colts and the Bengals, and the rest of the NFL teams will all play their games next Thursday Night.

 

Remaining Colts free agents, veteran reserve players and free agents, are expected to receive a lot of playing time, while the veteran starters are likely to watch from the sidelines, as all of them are competing in front of the coaching staffs and fans, to make the final 53-man regular season roster.

 

We will enjoy this win for now, and see our Colts again Thursday Night with the Bengals. Until then, thanks to all you participating in the Colts Game  Thread Forum, continue to stay Colts Strong to all of you, and GO COLTS!!!!!     :coltslogo:   :1colts:   :colts:   :helmet:  :blueshoe:  :coltshorse:  :coltslogo:  :D

    • I was watching some old draft videos regarding the Colts 2018 draft on youtube, and I saw an interesting comment in the comments section.  This is the video first.    In the comments section there is a 3 comment conversation started by Captain Luck. It says:   Captain Luck9 months ago (edited) Harold Landry was red flagged....bet. Josh Jackson was red flagged. Derius Guice was red flagged. Those are my guesses. Ballard went for the best player available with the best leadership and character. That's how the Cubs built it and Ballard is taking that same approach. If nothing else, he wants a locker room he can be proud of even if he's not drafting the guys other teams would based on talent. Exactly what the Pacers did too and look how well that worked out.   Jason Spears9 months ago Justin Pelkey if that's the case, it makes much more sense.   Captain Luck9 months ago Jason Spears I'm not sure but Ballard said that 45 prospects were automatically red flagged due to lack of scheme fit, lack of maturity/character, and injury history. I think that's why some of the picks lool like reaches. He was really strict about the type of player he was letting in the organization. I forget the Cubs GM name, but Ballard read his book last summer. The Cubs GM did the exact same thing. He looked at unique traits but more importantly brought in proven leaders. Ballard appears to be taking the same approach. We'll have to wait and see if it works.   I thought this was very interesting as I'm not sure if he purposely is following the Theo Epstein model or if that's out of coincidence. The most telling thing is that he red flagged 45 prospects due to lack of scheme fit, maturity/character, and injury history. I knew GM's did this to an extent, but Ballard is apparently very picky, to the extent that he just wants certain guys even if he isn't getting value. It's not just about BPA or need with him. It's about getting the exact guys he feels comfortable with at certain positions. I can only imagine how few guys that he's willing to take when it's our pick.    I couldn't find an article saying this info was 100% true, but no one said he was wrong either, and it makes sense. Just thought some people here might think this was interesting regarding Ballard, and it might reveal some of his drafting secrets that we can build mocks off of to emulate him.    
    • Great draft, but give some kudos to Frank for the way he bonded the team, created the locker room vibe, and turned them into winners. Great all round job. Hopefully we take the next step next season...
    • Yeah, losing Glenn and Diem really killed us for a long time until we drafted Anthony. We've hadn't had much luck at RT until this past season.
    • Yeah it was in the mid 2000s but they picked it up since AZ made the Sb and then the 49ers and Seahawks started becoming very good with their defense.   Now it’s the Rams turn, I think Seattle is still gonna be in there. AZ and SF still in rebuild mode.
    • People didn't appreciate just how good Tarik was until Tony Ugoh came along.
