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:

  Good Lord......how many games a year do they have there???

 

....postpone it until to Monday..that's a good idea...CBE!

..some folks do have to go home, though

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.

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:

    • At least you didn’t become a Steelers fan ! As far as the throwback, he literally put merchandise in the team shop saying Baltimore Colts ! The ultimate throwback ! To your point that the fans weren’t interested in the Colts, that’s not quite true . Attendance was down because of poor product at the time, but that happens in most cities. As usual, it was an owner versus the city for a better stadium and revenue , and the fans get run over in the process.  As far as acknowledging Baltimore, the point is acknowledging the history correctly as it was at the time. That’s all I’m saying. The fans and the Ravens never abandoned the Baltimore Colts legacy. If the fan base didn’t care, you wouldn’t have the Unitas statue, Baltimore Colts in the Ravens ring of honor, or the Super Bowl 5 trophy here. We also use the old Baltimore Colt fight song , for the Ravens, with slightly different lyrics, and the old Colt marching band is now the fighting Ravens. We’ve had a lot of old Baltimore Colts like Bruce Laird, Tom Matte, and Stan White covering Ravens games on TV and radio. Many of us own a lot of old Colts memorabilia. So the fans do care.  So to us, the Baltimore Colts is our throwback history even though the NFL doesn’t say that.  I get where you are coming from, but to me, it was Baltimore Colts fan, 12 years in the desert, Baltimore Ravens fan. I have a lot of respect for the Indy Colts history post 1984. Good city, good fans, their own unique history.  I’m not against Indy putting together a Baltimore Colts throwback night or uniform, but don’t time travel Deforest Buckner back to 1956 in clumsy promos  ! At least you had Lenny there at the stadium. That was more appropriate. 
    • And you have beaten it to DEATH Twice over, yes you have written enough for a book, and haven't moved the needle one iota.   Frank IS Frank so as long as he is the coach many more needleless books to follow.   It is very unfortunate for you Frank is our coach. We must all be hoping we get even an Average D, so that winning more of these close games can help unload the steam from your offensive guru boiler. Yes we know your not a guru, i just wanted to spark another 500 words for the fun of it.  It is amazing Frank is putting up this many PPG ALREADY with this QB and modest receiving core. What fun it would be if we had 4th-5th year TY.   You wouldn't be saying Squat about the play calling!!!  If Bo thought he knew defense, it would have been 10,000 words complaining about Flus. Flus is developing pass rushers, has a weak set in the d backfield, and is killing it with turnovers. Wait till 22 to see what Ballard does to help our seive of a D.
    • I kept my i on him in pre-season. At guard he was knocking guys back and maintaining contact very well. Had some bully in him. Potential as a center also. Kelly isn't irreplaceable. By a players year 3, thinking Pinter and Fries, they should be prepared for solid starter duty if they ever will be.
    • They were in pass D coverage according to Arians, just FYI.  When they committed to stopping the run, they did, they're really good.  Hard truth is they were better at stopping the run than we were at running, so we passed.  The Bucs v the run are not the other 31.
