Colts @ Bills Preseason Game Night Thread

Welcome back, Colts fans!  :)  Field conditions certainly should not be an issue tonight as our Indianapolis Colts are in Orchard Park in Western New York state to play the Buffalo Bills in their scheduled second preseason game, but the first real preseason game where all the players and coaches should see and play in game action tonight.  

 

Though the Colts were prepared to be game ready last Sunday Night to play in the annual Pro Football Hall Of Fame Game last Sunday Night in Canton, Ohio, both the Colts and Packers fortunately by  the priority and concern of player safety, did not play the actual HOF game because of the field conditions at Canton.  Perhaps  the extra week may be a blessing in disguise, as all the players, should be more rested, even anxious, to showcase their talents to the coaches and fans, as they start to earn themselves into the 53-man team roster for the upcoming 16-game regular season.

 

Retaining both General Manager Ryan Grigson, and Head Coach Chuck Pagano was pivotal and the key factors in the off-season to continue rebuilding and staffing the players for the Colts 2016 team that will try to regain and earn back the AFC South Division title.  Colts finished their 2015 NFL season with an 8-8 record, but with a second place finish in the AFC South, and out of the NFL postseason.

 

Veteran QB Andrew Luck should be healthy to play  this year, but h, like the rest of the first-string and starting players, are expected to play in limited offensive and defensive series during the preseason, and likely to play most of their game action when the games really count and matter during the Colts 2016 NFL regular season.

 

Indianapolis though finished their 2015 NFL Preseason with a 1-3 record, their only win a 24-14 road win at the St. Louis Rams back on August 29.

 

Both Indianapolis and Buffalo played their recent  preseason game and meeting at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building), where the visiting Bills spolied the Colts preseason opener by winning 44-24 back on August 11, 2013.  Buffalo Bills though played their last 'home' game with Indianapolis at a neutral site, winning 34-21 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, played on August 19, 2010.

 

Colts 2016 NFL Draft Class are expected to play in their first NFL game in Buffalo tonight, featuring and including Center Ryan Kelly from Alabama, T.J.Green, Le'Raven Clark, Hassan Ridgeway, Antonio Morrision, Joe Haeg, Trevor Bates,  and Austin Blythe.

 

Veteran Colts players who resigned to play this year in the past 2016 NFL off-season includes  Dwayne Allen, Akeem Davis, Jack Doyle, and. Adam Vinatieri.

 

Colts players who played in 2015, but moved on to play for other teams for the upcoming 2016 NFL season through free agency,  includes Colt Anderson and Dan Herron to Buffalo, Coby Fleener to New Orleans, Jerrell Freeman to Chicago, Dwight Lowery to San Diego, and Billy Winn to Denver.    QB Matt Hasselback also retired, while Ahmad Bradshaw and Charlie Whitehurst have yet to sign with another NFL team.

 

Indiana Hoosiers broadcaster Don Fischer, and former Northwestern, college and NFL player and coach Rick Venturi, are announcing the live TV game commentary for all Colts preseason games in 2016, on flagship station WXIN FOX Channel 59 in Indianapolis, and the Colts Preseason Television Network.  Tonight's Colts @ Bills preseason game is also scheduled to be replayed on The NFL Network later tonight, and in the coming week.

 

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts' and former Colts QB Jim Sorgi, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Matt Taylor,are also announcing the live radio game play-by-play and analysis for the Colts 2016 season on simulcast on Colts flagship stations WFNI ESPN Radio 1070AM and 107.5FM,, WHLK Country 97.1FM, and the Colts Radio Network.

 

Scattered thunderstorms and partly cloudy skies at 78 degrees, feels like 83 degrees,  is the game forecast inside Ralph Wilson Stadium near Buffalo, for the 4:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 55% humidity, 82% precipitation, and southwestern winds at 16 miles per hour.

 

Colts players are wearing their white helmets and pants and blue jerseys, while the host Bills players are wearing their white helmets, jerseys, and pants on the playing field.

 

NO injuries to both our Colts and the Bills players, and we wish them all great luck, they impress their coaching staffs, and make through the player cuts throughout 2016 NFL preseason schedule this summer. GO COLTS!!!!!  :)  :coltslogo:   :1colts:  :colts:  :coltslogo:  :rock:

Which station are you trying? 1070 is a sports talk radio and 97.1 is a country music station that changes close to game time

    • I don’t think Shaw is viewed as a potential NFL HC anymore.    You can’t introduce Shaw to a fan base.   Off the top of my head, Shaw’s last 4 years are 4-8, 4-2, (Covid) 3-9 and 3-9.    That’s not going to move the needle.    Shaw is a college coach.   A molder of young men and their lives.   He’s not a good enough HC to handle an NFL locker room.    For a coach whose entire career has been on the offensive side of the ball he runs an offense that is not very sophisticated.   It’s a hard offense to watch.   You wouldn’t  think his background was all offense.      He’s more likely to work for the NFL Network or ESPN if he doesn’t find another college job.      One last thing….    Shaw is close with Luck but is very happy that Luck has retired and moved in.    I’m not sure he’d even try to talk him into a comeback.   Maybe.   But I doubt it. 
    • You're making assumptions, and/or putting words in my mouth.  Never said Ifeadi was better than Yannick. Never....  I said Yannick sucks vs the run... and shouldn't play early downs (run downs) or on short yardage downs.    So let's look at basic data before this week...                   snaps   sacks   sacks/snap%  pressures  press/snap%  tackles   tackle/snap    missed tackle % Yannick    517       6.5          1.3%           19                  3.7%            21           4.0%                8.7% Ifeadi       196       2.5          1.3%            6                   3.1%            10           5.1%                 0%   So... you'll see above... not a huge difference in sack or pressure %... But Ifeadi is noticeably better vs the run and better in missed tackles...   So the point it..... Ifeadi should be playing more early downs, when the chance is greater to see runs...  If you want to see Dayo's comps, let me know. He's been used differently, but his stats obviously show he's better than the run...    Injury (Paye and Lewis) have hurt. We'd look different with Paye, and very different with both. 
    • If Wentz or Sam was playing it wouldn't be there fault at alll but because it is Matt, she just blames Matt. Boooooo.
    • Taylor’s fall off has been all year until the last three weeks.  That has nothing to do with the QB.  Again saying Ryan was the cause of the lines problems was flat out wrong.  The line has been bad rather Ryan was in there or not and in areas beyond pass protection.  Yes the line did play better tonight and frankly has played better since Saturday came in, particularly in run blocking.  That doesn’t change the fact that your statement that Ryan caused the lines problems was incorrect.
