Colts @ Bills Preseason Game Night Thread


Recommended Posts

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

    • He was the starting quarterback of a team that won the Superbowl, he gets the credit just as Trent Dilfer did - it's similar to a starting pitcher who gives up 3 home runs but still wins the game due to his offense hitting 4.
    • Injuries can happen anywhere.  But the O-line has been Dallas’s bread and butter.   They’ve had success with this formula.    Ultimately,  my point is this...   you take talent over the positional need.  Positional needs win when the players you’re deciding on are roughly equal.   Isn’t Nelson performing at a level that makes him either the best or near the best player in the draft?   I think so.   Then we took the right guy at pick 6.    Ballard always said the weakside outside backer in his 4-3 was the most important LB spot of the three.   He has to be an impact guy.   Then Leonard was the right pick at 36.     Ballard says he and his team look at money every day.   Literally, every day.   They are not caught off guard.   They are not unprepared.    And Ballard can be tough.   We signed Desir to a 3/25 contract.  And after he had a disappointing year — one year — we cut him.  I don’t know if Desir wouldn’t renegotiate and take a cut in pay, and we let him go.  Ballard went out and signed Xavier Rhodes.   Thus is a bottom line business and Ballard can be a tough guy.  Tough, but fair, IMO.    There isn’t a perfect formula.  There isn't one way to build a roster and team.   I don’t know why you don’t have faith in the guy and his team to make correct decisions.   No one is perfect in personnel.  No one.   We could have a monster thread of all of Belichick’s misses in the draft and free agency.  But he’s still the best at what he does.   It’s an inexact science.   Ballard is good at his job.  I don’t lose a minutes sleep worrying over what he has done or will do.   I’m glad he’s our guy.  If you’d been around here during the Grigson years you’d understand why Ballard gets the benefit of the doubt from so many here.    If you want to contact me privately, you’re welcome to do so.  The Mod removed some material, I don’t know what it is?   Otherwise, you can respond here as you like. 
    • I noticed that Autry is FA too in 21' so if Ballard loses both that becomes easily one of the Colts biggest needs. 
    • A - He won his 2nd year B - I hate this phrase “Ben won the super bowl”   Ben didn’t win a super bowl, he was gifted a super bowl.  He was 9 for 21, 123 yds, no TD and 2 INT.  Christopher Reeves would’ve won at QB with that team.
