Colts Vs. Buccaneers Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

Thanks for coming back for NFL Game Day, Colts Nation!   :)     A battle of 5-5 teams this afternoon, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with #1 2015 Overall Draft Pick Jameis Winston,  make their  first  visit to the City Of Indianapolis, to pay a regular season game in eight seasons to play our AFC South Division leading  Colts. Buccaneers are also  the Colts last NFC South interdivisonal opponent  in the 2015 NFL regular season, and the Bucs are playing their first-ever road game at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).

 

Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck is making his fourth start in relief of Andrew Luck, and already possesses a 3-0 record from their upset win at Atlanta last Sunday.

 

Both Indianapolis  and Tampa Bay are in their 13th all time regular season meeting, with the Colts leading the series 7 games to 5, and have also outscored the Bucs in the previous 12 games 311 points to 265 points.  

 

Buccaneers RB LaGarette Blount's 35-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, broke a 17-17 tie in the third quarter, and was the game-winning score, for Tampa Bay's 24-17 win over Indianapolis in both teams last meeting, played  at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, on Monday Night Football, back on October 3, 2011.

 

An undefeated and 5-0 Indianapolis Colts team defeated the 3-2 Buccaneers in Tampa Bay's last visit to Indianapolis in 2007. Peyton Manning thew two touchdowns passes, 10-yards to Dallas Clark, and 9-yards to Reggie Wayne. Colts RB Kenton Keith also added a 7-yard touchdown run, and Adam Vinetieri added both his two field goals from 27 and 35 yards, and his two PAT's,  to secure the Colts final score at 33-14, played at the RCA Dome, back on October, 7, 2007.

 

Richard Stockton and former NFL linebacker and current TV broadcaster Matt Millen, along with sideline/field reporter and interviewer Peter Schrager, are announcing the live TV game commentary, along for The NFL On FOX, seen primarily in Indiana and Florida, and locally on WXIN FOX Channel 59, live on HD.  

 

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' and former Colts QB Jim Sorgi, are also announcing the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline/field reporter and interviewer Matt Taylor, simulcast on flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WLHK The Hank Country 98.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network.

 

LOS's roof will be closed, for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because outside the stadium area in Downtown Indianapolis, will be a mix of partly cloudy and clear skies at 46 degrees, feels like 41 degrees, along with 0% precipitation, 55% humidity, and northeastern winds at 10 miles per hour.  

 

Visiting Buccaneers are wearing their pewter helmets, white jerseys, and pewter pants, while the host Colts are wearing their traditional white helmets, blue jerseys, and white pants. 

 

NO injuries, go over.500, and win your sixth straight, and stay both in the hunt in the AFC South and the NFL playoffs, and GO COLTS!!!!!   :cheer:  :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :blueshoe:  :coltslogo:  :cheer:  :D

Afternoon all.. blustery cold wet miserable day here... Looking forward to my few hours of escapism with watching the Colts.

 

Best get me a W now guys :P

What's up Steel. Yeah it's been raining here too and cold. It's clear today and not too bad but Friday and yesterday was a bit chilly and rain. I wish we could just run away with this like ColtRider stated. These close games are killing me haha.

When have the Colts ever given us nice easy blowouts since the start of the Luck era?  haha

Seems like never, great point. It's been a fun 4 years but only because we usually win but it's been tough on the stomach and heart LOL.

14+ point losses are blowouts in the NFL to me. Colts have had wins of 14+ points 14 times since Luck was drafted out of his 61 starts including playoffs....23 percent of his starts

Yeah but how about the numerous comebacks we have had to pull off with Andrew, very nerve racking. We haven't won a game this year by more than 7 points.

    • Don't be a joke NCF. Only an Amateur would think they would have moved as fast as that poster was expecting. Clearly, i thought it was obvious. 
    • I was just sitting here pondering this in my head. I was actually happy with the Banogu pick but the first time i saw him in pads as a Colt i thought he looked more like a linebacker instead of a pass rusher.  I didnt actually see where we really even made much of an attempt to play him at SAM to say it was a failed experiment though. What i remember is they tried him at edge and they felt he showed enough as a pass rusher in practice to stay there. I dont think they ever did much to see if he could play any of the linebacker spots. We already had plenty of backers when he came in.   I recently i watched him doing the linebacker drills at the combine and he didnt look bad at all shuffling back and forth in space. He runs somewhere in the neighborhood of 4.5 to 4.6 and hes got nice size and length. I do think hed make either a really good Sam or Mike backer if the instincts are there. I dont think he has any problems with physicality.
    • Honestly, I don’t know who is the OC and how the responsibilities are divided up for the Jags?   I was only responding to a poster who basically implied those three were the offensive decision makers.   I think both have had enough success in the NFL and I think Meyer has a good offensive mind.      I think it will work itself out.   Just the way I think it will work out for the Colts with us losing our coaches to the Eagles.  I’m confident Frank will work it out with our news assistants.   There may be some speed bumps along the way, but we should get it right soon enough. 
    • That's one of the reasons for these discussion boards. People get some info, watch some game/tapes, pick their person. Others gather stats, watch different tape/games, get unknown before (to the public) medical data and maybe go a different route. Nobody is getting paid by the organization, and nobody is on the hot seat of losing their job if they are way off in their 'predictions.'.  It's fun conjecture and possibly sharing new information or at least different perspectives.  
    • Reich seems to have a problem with playing predictable football.  IMHO he lacks that flair for tactics that might propel him to the next level.  Think of him as a solid conventional coach, with a bit too much emphasis on "conventional."  He'll cover the basics, but he won't step outside them when you might want/need him to.
