Colts @ Bengals Preseason Game Night Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!  :)  Our Indianapolis Colts conclude their 2016 preseason schedule, as they travel southeast down Interstate 74 to play their annual preseason game with the Cincinnati Bengals.  Tonight is both the Colts 23rd all-time preseason meeting with the Bengals, and 12th visit in Cincinnati for a scheduled preseason game.

 

Many players are on the bubble tonight to make the regular season roster, and after tonight's game, all NFL teams must cut at least 22 remaining players to meet the mandatory 53-man regular season roster for the 2016 NFL regular season.

 

Head Coach Chuck Pagano and his coaching staff, General Manager Ryan Grigson, the Colts pro and scouting departments, and perhaps even Colts owner Jim Irsay and his family, go through the annual and unpleasant decisions in personnel, and retaining the best players by position, that will become the 2016 Indianapolis Colts that take the field on opening Sunday, September 11.

 

Cincinnati though leads the all-time preseason series over Indianapolis entering tonight with 14 wins and 8 losses. Bengals are also in a three game preseason winning streak over our Colts, outscoring 71-23 in those three games.  Colts last preseason win over the Bengals was four years ago, when Indianapolis defeated Cincinnati by the score of 20-16 back on in the preseason finale back on August 30, 2012.   Highlights in that last preseason win over Cincinnati includes two touchdown runs in the second quarter, from 7 yards by Deji Karim, and 1 yard by Darren Evans, two PAT's by Adam Vinateiri, and a Chandler Harnish 42-yard touchdown pass to Dominique Jones.

 

Cincinnati may currently lead the preseason series 14-8, but more important for Indianapolis, the Colts lead both the all-time regular season series with 17 wins and 10 losses and 2 postseason series. Colts last two regular wins occured during their 2014 NFL season.  Colts defeated and shutout the Bengals 27-0 at LOS (the building) on October 19, and defeated the Bengals again in the rematch in their AFC Wild Card Playoff Game by the score of 26-7 on January 4, 2015, both games played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).

 

NO injuries, and good luck to all the reserve and free agents that are trying to make the cut with both the Colts and the Bengals. GO COLTS!!!!!     :coltslogo:    :rock:  :1colts:     :colts::coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:  :)

I hope for no injuries. We could lose 50-0 but if we come out with 0 serious injuries, that itself is a win.

I agree but we will have the usual 4 or 5 posters that say the season is over if we lose haha. If we lost 100-0 I could care less as long as Luck and nobody else is injured. I doubt if Luck plays anyway. I wouldn't play him.

Of course I will watch but it's still a meaningless game. I hope Morris plays a lot.

Depends on who you are and how closely you watch players. For some of us it's an exciting game because we get too see if a player we want will make the team or not

Cant argue that. It is important for the players who borderline on making the team. What I meant by meaningless is it doesn't matter if we win or lose. I hope Morris plays well.

Off topic but Brady looks like dog doo tonight, he just got INT so I guess the Patriots will go 6-10 (sarcasm)

Would b funny if Brady got benched for his replacement like he did to Bledsoe

-I look for Todman to make a strong case tonight at RB to stick to the roster

-I look Rogers to assert his place on the roster tonight

-I think Maggit gets his first sack tonight while continuing to get some pressure, He had been close a few times

-I'm hoping Swoope makes himself relevant tonight

-I think Ridley has a solid game tonight in limited carries

Nice first drive. Rather this happen here and make adjustments. It would have been nice to score a touchdown for confidence though. Coffman looks good and may take Swoope's spot since Swoope has only caught balls on plays called directly for him.

The run game is seriously at the point that I almost dismiss the fumbles anymore on solid runs because of nothing more than the fact that a solid run is extremely rare to see I your a Colt fan. So solid run by Turbin

    • I wouldn't say it's clear...but I think I have a pretty good beat on it.   TEs take at least a year to develop, so I think they will look to draft a TE on late Day 2 (if he gets more draft capital) or early Day 3 (if they fall). Let him start developing into a TE1 role. I think Friermuth is the guy they want...but Tremble also seems like a good bet...as are McKitty and Long.    And then to address the actual immediate TE need...they will get Ertz after June 1 when PHI can better eat the dead cap hit.   MAC will still have a role, but he's really not the short-intermediate option that Ertz/Doyle are. And after Doyle retires after this season...Ertz will assume his role going for the next couple of years as his career winds down. And MAC will either get a two-year extension or they will add cheap depth in FA.   At first glance, it might seem extreme to carry (4) TEs on the roster...but I think we are going to see a big bump in 12 personnel looks...which means they will need the depth.   The ultimate goal of the offense is to create something even better than the 2017 PHI offense. But not only are the Colts not there yet from a personnel standpoint...Wentz is also not there (given his recent play). And the last time Wentz was playing good football was the last four games of the 2019 season. During those four games, Jeffery and Agholor were both and Pederson ran the offense through his TEs and RBs. PHI ran 12 personnel 55%+ of the time in that 2019 season.   With a TE room that would include Ertz/Doyle/MAC/promising rookie and a RB room that includes Taylor/Hines...those pieces would be in place. And then as Wentz gets more acclimated and fixes his mechanics...they will open the offense more to include the deep ball and WRs.
    • How about trading with our good friends the Jets?  We trade 21(800pts) for their pick 34 2nd rd (560pts) pick 86 3rd rd (160pts) and pick 107 4th rd (80pts).  Total pts. equal 800 both sides.  
    • Thought I would make a thread to discuss it here. It will be steamed live on colts.com, Ap, and I think Facebook.    
    • When the poster wrote thst linebackers for this defense can be found in later rounds...   I felt comfortable calling it hyperbole.      You’re free to disagree.   Either way, it’s flat out wrong.
