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

Contain RB Doug Martin. Winston is enough to worry about. Can't afford a 200 yard day. This should be a close one. But I hope we run away with it.

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.

45 degrees fahrenheit, 0% chance of precipitation at kickoff - OPEN THAT ROOF!

It's closed. Believe 50 at kickoff is the cut off, but yeah, why not. Football weather.

Lol Herremans is still benched. Glad it seems like we're keeping the interior OL intact against McCoy. Looks like Good gets the nod at right tackle.

Luck, Dorsett, Castonzo, Werner.  That's 4 first round picks that are inactive.

 

The league's oldest starting QB meets the league's youngest.  Let's get the W and keep Hasselbeck undefeated on the year!

    • I thought we’d go 8-8 or 9-7 with JB, the rooks, turmoil of losing a franchise QB. we’re not that far off, even with all the injuries.  Which were many.   I was hoping we’d squeak in the playoffs.   I also thought Frank wanted an offense that put pressure on the D.  I really didnt see the creativity i did last year.  Not gimmicks, But creativity in formations and playcalling.  Perhaps it was due to our losses at WR and TE.  I also was confused by our bi-polar personality when it comes to risk and being aggressive.   I dont think the sky is falling (long-term), but some changes, and perhaps tweaks, are necessary.
    • I did that already either you understand it or you don't 
    • We currently have pick 15--if Tua is still available, would you take a punt and pick him, with the thought he would miss his rookie season?
    • Well, I have not thought the team was bad since Ballard got a year under his belt and hired his own coach. They have had struggles...as any rebuilding does, but the Colts also lost their schemed for QB. Every team gets injuries, but the positions that the Colts have lost to injury are particularly important to the development of a new QB.   Let's just think about what if......   What if the Colts take a high draft pick at QB next year....and the guy faces what JB had to face in the two years he has been a starter. Few would get through and remain as a starter, unaffected career wise by the losses, the scrutiny, and the pressure. Verrrrrry few. Thank the stars that the Colts have a QB that is as tough as Jacoby Brissett is. He is double tough. I would take his toughness against ANY QB coming out in the draft. He may not be that guy, but he is the right guy right now.....and for the forseeable future, until that guy becomes a possibility. Just because there is  a few QB's slotted to go high in the draft, doesn't mean it is the right year to snag one.    In the meantime, keep adding pieces, and manage the cap. When the Colts name is called in the draft, I want them to take the player that they see is a franchise player....regardless of the position. If that is a QB, so be it. But let's not become a struggling franchise that passes on a golden player to grasp for a QB.
    • Depending on a series of decisions we make this off-season I wouldn’t rule out drafting a RB in the 4 rounds.  (I’m assuming by 5 picks you meant 4 rounds?  With 2 picks in R2, that’s the way the math breaks down.)    Just thinking out loud.   I think it’s way too early to rule most things in or out.
