Colts Vs. Chargers Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!  :) Our Indianapolis Colts will try to win their first regular season home game, and also win their first home game with the San Diego Chargers since moving to Lucas Oil Stadium back in  2009.  Colts are also on a three-game regular season losing streak against San Diego, being outscored in those three games 78 points to 40.

 

San Diego also leads the all-time regular season series over the Baltimore/Indianapolis Colts with an 18 win, 10 loss, record, entering today's 29th all-time regular season meeting.

 

Mike Vanderjagt kicked a 30-yard field goal for the Colts 2:47 into overtime to help the Colts win 34-31 at the RCA Dome back on December 26, 2004.

 

Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon are announcing The NFL In CBS late regional doubleheader game, including locally on WTTV CBS Channel 4, live on HD.

 

LOS's roof might be open for the late afternoon's 4:25PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because partly cloudy skies at 87 degrees, feels like 91 degrees is the game forecast in Downtown Indianapolis, along with 15% precipitation, 51% humidity, and very mild south/southwestern winds at 4 miles per hour.

 

NO injuries to both the Colts and the Chargers, win your first regular season game in front of your home fans at LOS, and GO COLTS!!!!!    :cheer:   :coltslogo:    :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:   :coltslogo:  :cheer:  :rock:

Greetings everyone and thank you @LucasOilStadium for the open as ever. 

 

Managed to survive the 1/2 marathon earlier so here's hoping the Colts top it off and give us the much needed W. Luck's shoulder should be nice and fresh after sitting out practice....

Bankers Life Fieldhouse????  Wrong team, wrong sport and wrong venue.  That's where the Pacers play a few blocks away in Downtown Indianapolis!

Yeah maybe we can plug in Paul George at WR since Moncrief is out, he is 6'9.

"You have to make a commitment to running the football".

 

No really we don't, we're not good at establishing the run. Let's kill them with the pass then run all over them.

    • Nice thread...    There have been some arguments for a while now about the relative value of pass-coverage vs pass-rush. Teams offensively are turning to faster and faster game plans and this affects the pass-rush a ton. You can practically scheme the pass-rush away if you have good enough QB and receivers that get open quickly. The latest advanced analytics seem to favor positions like CB and WR value-wise over long-held champions like EDGE rushers or OTs. I will also take into account your characterization of the rest of the roster(average players as opposed to straight up trash). At some positions the improvement between pro-bowler and average/JAG is higher than at other positions. Those are just part of the considerations that will inform my choise here:   Offense:   1. QB: not controversial take here - most important position of all... he handles the ball and makes a decision that might affect the game pretty much 100% of the snaps. I want the best passer and decisionmaker to run my offense.    2. WR: yep, give me a beast of an X-receiver. Pass-catchers are incredibly important.   3. LT: Yeah, I know, this goes against some of the things I said above, but time and time again we see what a great LT does to an offensive line. Leremy Tunsil is not even that great and he almost single-handedly turned around the HOU OLine. Same with AC last year - we missed him mightily when he was injured to start the year and then turned the line into a great unit. And again - he's not even at the level we are talking here. He still has not had a pro-bowl or all-pro recognition(maybe he gets one this year, he deserves it). But yeah... give me Bakhtiari, give me Armstead, give me Tyron Smith level player... I think this raises the level of the whole O-Line, especially if it's filled with average players at the other positions(rather than horrible ones)   ------------------------------------ Those will be my selections offensively. I think a QB masks a lot of deficiencies and I think he elevates average players and squeezes everything out of most of them. Just look at what Luck used to do with players like Jack Doyle, Donte Moncrief, Eric Ebron, Inman, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen...    Defense:   4. CB: yep, I want a shut down corner. Like I said earlier, newest research shows pass-coverage and especially on the boundary is paramount. and it affects pass-rush more than pass-rush affects CB play.    5. CB: yep, give me one more... I'm shutting down both sides of the field and hoping this gives additional time to my pass-rush to get there. They will play on island and I will scheme out everything else(i.e. slot receivers and TEs)... if I have to I will double away from them.    6. WILL: I want a sideline to sideline monster to clean up the run game and take on crossing routes in the short-intermediate middle in coverage.     7. EDGE: I still want a player capable of beating his man one-on-one on the line and creating pressure/affecting the pass when my pro-bowl CBs lock down their match ups.    So what do you think? Does it make sense?
