Colts Vs. Packers Preseason Hall Of Fame Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!   :)  NFL Football is finally  back on the playing field tonight as both our Indianapolis Colts play the Green Bay Packers in the annual Pro Football Hall Of Fame Game  at  Canton, Ohio.  Both the Colts and Packers also lead off the 2016 NFL Preseason schedule, and the long 2016 NFL season for the next six months, concluding with Super Bowl LI  at Houston in February.

 

Both Indianapolis And Green Bay lost their games when each team played the PFHOF Game in Canton Ohio.  Colts are appearing in their first Hall Of Fame Game in nine years, since the Washington Redskins defeated Indianapolis 30-16 at Canton, back on August 3, 2008.  Packers are also appearing in the HOF Game for the first time in 13 years, since the Kansas City Chiefs won in a 9-0 shutout back on August 4, 2003.

 

Prior to tonight and after four games, the Baltimore/Indianapolis Colts HOF exibition record stands at 2 wins and 2 losses at .500, while the Green Bay Packers record is 1 win. 2 losses, and 1 tie.

 

ESPN is televising the Pro Football Hall Of Game with coverage beginning at 8:00PM Eastern Standard Time.

 

Mostly cloudy skies at 83 degrees is the game forecast for the 8:05PM kickoff at the Tom Benson Hall Of Fame Stadium in Canton. Ohio.

 

NO injuries, we will see the Colts and Packers 2016 NFL Draft choices for the first time in game action on the playing field, along with the veterans free agents signed by both the Colts and Packers.  GO COLTS!!!!!    :rock::cheer: :coltslogo:  :1colts: :colts:  :coltslogo:

That sounds good! I will probably just keep it simple and cook up a bunch of Buffalo Wings. Glad Football is back.

Thanks for opening up the thread, LOS.  Looks like you had no off season rust in doing so.  Hopefully our starters will fare just as well.

Fooooooootballll!!

According to Twitter and local media there may not be a "game". The there is a field turf issue, apparently.

Yeah that would stink for the people there right now that is for sure. I don't want anyone getting injured either. I have never heard of or seen anything like this.

Some heads are gunna roll.  I would hate to be on the paint crew.  NFL hates to start the season with a black eye but wow....just like Randy Moss said,,,, there are no excuses for what happened.

I guess the NFL didn't check the field until...tonight??

This is just a huge fail.  I also feel for those fans in the stands.  What a letdown!!

There really aren't.

They have all summer to get ready for this weekend.......

....new construction..new field?  OK

But then why not get the field ready last weekend before all the events?

  

.....I;m guessing there's a little more to this than what we've heard

Indeed, Indeed.  The refund line at the hall of fame is going to explode, causing a massive black-out.

Better to be safe than sorry for our Colts players and the coaching staff to play in the HOF Game. PFHOF Game is officially cancelled because of the paint above, and the rubber pellets suportting the turf beneath the playing surface.  Player safety and personal well being is paramount and the top priority throughout the(ir) NFL season.

If there is a compromise, both the Colts and Packers each can prepare for Buffalo and Cleveland respectfully in the first official weekend of the preseason schedule on Friday and Saturday.  Both Indianapolis and Green Bay are each playing four scheduled preseason games with the rest of the NFL teams.

 

None of the Colts and Packers players avoided potential injuries, and both teams may be both disappointed, but relieved that the HOF was cancelled to prevent further, and even career-ending injury.

 

Now our Indianapolis Colts can go back and continue their training camp, and prepare for their road game with the Buffalo Bills at Orchard Park, New York.  Thanks for participating though despite the cancelled Pro Football Hall Of Fame Game because of both player safety and the playing conditions.

 

Enjoy your week in the meantime, we will see you back here on Saturday Night as our Colts will battle the Buffalo Bills, and we should finally see our first look of the rookies drafted in the 2016 NFL Draft, and the signed free agents acquired during this past offseason.

 

We will see you back here at the Colts Fan Forum Message Board, both here on the Game Day Thread, and on the  live chat, for and during the Colts/Bills preseason game, and GO COLTS!!!!  :)   :coltslogo:  :1colts:   :colts: :helmet:     :coltslogo:

    • I guess there is a first time for everything.  FWIW Charles Davis of NFL Network said he only sees 27 players in this years draft worthy of a 1st. round grade.  Running backs Taylor along with Swift were in the 27.  Chinn was not.  I would be surprised if Ballard passed on a player like Taylor to get Chinn.  I think if Ballard has a chance to draft a 1st round rated player at 34 he would do it.  I think he believes in the BPA concept.  So maybe we will get a chance to find out.  
    • The preseason and training will be challenged due to the Carona Virus.  There will still be death and positive cases throughout the country because we have no testing to absolutely confirm the lack of the presence of the virus. Europe and Asia has pushed to professional soccer played in empty stadium with players tested before that there is no Covid virus.  Trump will push sports commission to return ASAP to its normal format, until the virus blows up again, as it will resurge in the fall/winter months.    My bet is that the NFL will be better served by playing the games in empty stadiums and using virtual fans to provide the stadium and fan feedback to the excitement out on the field. It may recreate the TV experience where fans are coming to you live expressing their excitement (good or bad) in real time.  It would be a win-win for the NFL owners, players and advertisers, and the fan. Everybody gets what they want. I know the owners lose out on the stadium revenue but something is better than nothing.  Maybe they can sell stadium seat viewership like F-1 racing does with placing the camera above the driver's seat. That might be a cool experience for the seat holder. They can save on the food, beverage.
    • Sounds like they refuted that rumor. Maybe they were hoping to surprise people...or have decided it wasn't worth the effort (especially if they had issues).    I fully expect some draftee to have a cardboard cut-out of Goodell in their living rooms to hug.
    • Not a bad draft at all.  I'm not sure 2 RBs is in the cards but if that is how the board falls then so be it.  The only thing I really don't like is Shea Patterson.  I'm a huge Wolverine fan but I would not touch patterson with a social distancing pole.  He was not a good college QB and he will not be a good NFL QB.
