Colts Vs. Eagles Preseason Game Night Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans! :)  Our Indianapolis Colts both won at Buffalo, but lost to Baltimore with identical 19-18 scores in their first preseason games,  Hopefully the Colts can score more points, and win by a bigger margin tonight as the host the visiting and 2-0 Philadelphia Eagles at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).  Colts seek to win their first preseason win over the Eagles in seven years.

 

Traditionally, the veteran starting players  in both offense and defense perform, and are involved in the most playing time during game action in the third preseason game.  Later by the second half, in this game at the discretion and decision by both the Colts and Eagles coaching staffs, the starters would then be benched and replaced by the drafted and undrafted rookies, and free agents signed, to show their talents on the playing field during the remainder of tonight's game, especially those players on the bubble, to try to make, and survive, next Tuesday's mandatory cutdown from 90 to 75 players by Tuesday afternoon.

 

Tonight is the 21st all-time preseason meeting between Indianapolis and Philadelphia, each team winning 10 games. Colts and Eagles last met both teams  preseason opener last year, with Philadelphia winning 36-10 over Indianapolis, played at Lincoln Financial Field back on August 16, 2015.  However,  won their last preseason meeting over the Eagles, in Philadelphia's last visit to Indianapolis, winning 23-15, back on August 20, 2009.

 

Colts though lead the Eagles in the all-time regular season series 10 games to 9, with their rivalry that began in 1950. Eagles won the last regular season meeting, defeating our Colts 30-27, and played at LOS back on September 15, 2014.

 

Don Fischer and Rick Venturi are announcing the live TV commentary locally on WTTV CBS Channel 4 in Indianapolis, and the Colts Preseason Telelevison Network, live on HD.

 

Bob Lamey and Jim Sorgi are also broadcasting the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Matt Taylor, simulcast on Colts flagship stations WFNI ESPN Radio 1070AM, and WLHK Country 97.1, and the Colts Radio Network.

 

LOS's roof should be closed again to protect both the Colts and Eagles, and the fans attending tonight to protect the outside elements, because mostly cloudy skies at 88 degrees, feels like 95 degrees, is the game forecast for the 7:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 15% precipitation, 58% humidity, and southern winds at 8 miles per hour.

 

NO injuries to both the Colts and Eagles, as we wish all the players the best of luck as they try to impress their coaching staffs after tonight's game to try to make the cut from 90 to 75 players, heading into the preseason finale at Cincinnati. Go for Win #2 tonight, and  LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!    :cheer: :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:   :coltshelmet:    :rock::cheer: :coltslogo:

What a crazy preseason it has been already with the cancelled HOF game, the impressive play of our rookies and all of the injuries we are dealing with. 

 

Hopefully everybody gets away from this one healthy. I want to see more 3 wide sets from the offense and somebody, anybody to step up at cb on defense.

I'm going tonight, any suggestions on getting autographs before or after game

Prob too late, but I've had pretty good luck at the seats above the field entrance/exit. Not sure where you're sitting, but you just have to make your way down there and be aggressive with the autograph snakes(dealers). Enjoy the game!

We seem to be highy ineffective in the redzone. 

IMO the D stepped up in the Red Zone it was outside the 20 that was the problem

    • I think this ends his NFL career.   He was a backup or practice squad quality player who will now be taking a season off.  Be tough to sign with another team.  
    • Your QB room is only as good as your starter though....Would anyone here say Rivers is the 9th best QB in the league at this point? Don't get me wrong, i think he is in a position to succeed and should improve on last year, but a lot of other QB's behind our line would too..... I would easily take the following over Rivers at the moment (in no particular order):   - Drew Brees - Deshaun Watson - Mahomes - L. Jackson - M. Ryan - Aaron Rodgers - Carson Wentz - Kyle Murray - Dak P. - Kirk Cousins - M. Stafford - R. Wilson And i would certainly take a risk on someone like these guys for the long term factor as well: - Joe Burrow - Cam Newton - Jimmy G - Baker Mayfield
    • The Indianapolis Colts Pro Shop at Lucas Oil Stadium is again open for business, Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with health and safety precautions in place due to the ongoing COVID-19 health emergency.    https://www.colts.com/news/colts-pro-shop-reopens-covid-19-health-precautions-lucas-oil-stadium
    • I love Cynthia, she's a great analytics expert and really knows what she's talking about! Though some of her fantasy rankings are a little wacky, I will admit.   I'll take 9th honestly. That would mean Rivers is a draftable QB in 10 and 12 team fantasy leagues to start, and he can lead us when need be. Just because a QB is no1 overall doesn't mean they're great. In fact, there are QB's taken all over the first round that are better than the no1 overall QB selections. That should give us hope for next year.
    • To your 1st sentence I did too. They just punished the Ravens up front. We have that type of Line and running game too.
