Colts @ Jaguars In London, England, Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Welcome back for Colts NFL Game Day, Colts fans!  :)   Our Indianapolis Colts are in the Greater London, England area, as they play overseas the 0-4 and winless Jacksonville Jaguars in an NFL International Game in Great Britain.  

 

Colts have previously played a preseason  game with the Atlanta Falcons, featuring Peyton Manning opposite Michael Vick at the time, but the Falcons defeated our Colts 27-21, in that NFL International exhibtion game, named the American Bowl and played at the Tokyo Dome in  back on August 5, 2005.

 

Colts and Jaguars split their wins in each teams home stadiums last season, winning 16-13 with 4:26 remaining in overtime at LOS.  However, Jacksonville defeated Indianapolis 51-16 in the rematch at EverBank Field back on December 13, 2015.

 

Indianapolis though leads Jacksonville in the all-time regular season series, with 21 wins and 9 losses after 30 games.

 

Today's Colts Vs. Jaguars international game in London is also the first scheduled regular season game in October, so NFL players and support staff from both teams may participate to wear authentic pink colored NFL authentic apparel to ob serve the NFL's annual support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

 

Greg Gumbel and Trent Green announcing the live TV game coverage for The NFL On CBS, including locally on WTTV CBS Channel 4, live on HD.

 

A mix of sunny and partly cloudy skies at 60 degrees, feels like 59 degrees, is the game forecast inside Wembley Stadium, for the 9:35AM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with  0% precipitation, 59% humidity, and north/northwestern winds at 8 miles per hour.

 

NO injuries to both the Colts and Jaguars,  win your second straight game in consecutive Sunday's and GO COLTS!!!!!   :rock::cheer:    :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:   :coltshelmet:     :cheer:  :coltslogo:

Reitz and Good were just ruled inactive. All rookie right side. Haeg at RT who I like, and Blythe at RG. Clark backing up, and he is the one who scares me as he just needs more work. Love the potential, but hope Blythe and Haeg stay healthy and play well. 3 rookies on the line today!

Hard to believe after all the work Grigson did at OL this past offseason to learn from our mistakes, we are in week 4 at 1-2 starting 3 rookies at OL and are an injury away from playing a guy we signed two days ago.

Look on the bright side the rookies get a chance to learn and steal spots in the future

 The only way they are going to learn and get better is by playing.

That's how I see it, Will....

We drafted a 80% of a new...O-line........I didn't want to throw them out there this fast (except for Kelly) but it is what it is.We drafted these guys eventually to play

 

'Eventually' just came a little bit earlier....than we thought

I think sometimes people underestimate how important having some decent depth is on an O-line. Given that there are 5 guys, the odds of all 5 playing 16 games is pretty low.

    • As I said, it's never about "can you fit under the cap?", or "do you spend all your cap space?" Because you can fit under the cap certainly. Actually, you have to, that's the rule. And most teams do spend their cap space. That's the point. Use it all if possible. The Patriots use it all usually, the Steelers use it all usually, etc. Most teams do. Actually, the Colts do use almost all of their 2019 cap space too. (The 2019 total sum of contracts is a bit over 184 million, just a few mills under the cap. That "40ish cap space" is already nothing else but the rollovers from previous years.)   But, even with spending all the cap space, there is good cap management, and there is bad cap management. The Patriots spend all of their cap space, and they manage it very effectively. The Colts (now) spend all of their (excluding rollover), and I belive Ballard manages the cap very effectively. But the Jags didn't. They went over the line, and sacrifized their future effectiveness by getting into bidding wars and signing pricey free agents one after another. The problem wasn't Norwell. If it was only him, that would be ok. The problem was, that they also signed Moncrief for 10M, Jenkins for 6M, Church for 7M, traded for Hyde and payed him 4M and he barely saw the field, etc, etc. The list is very long.      I never said that having elite talents heading into their second contract is a burden. You are right, that is a blessing. Actually, that is the best that can happen to a team. That's what Ballard want's to do! The problem is, that the Jaguars got into a situation, when there is a very good chance that they cannot sign their own guys. And their roster got thin, because they could not refill it this offseason enough. They got worse. And they will become even worse in 2020, because they won't be able to retain their talent level. Yes, they can cut Campbell, they can cut Bouye, and they can trade Ngakogue, and fit under the cap. And then? Who will play at CB, who will play at DE? A mediocre somebody. So, instead of improving their team, they actually made it worse. That's the bad management. Cap wise and talent wise as well. (However, I do agree, that they kinda draft OK recently - one year exceptionally well, but still OK since then, so their talent infusion is somewhat OK. What they screwed up big time is cap management.)   Btw, this is an old story repeating itself. Coughlin has been with the Jags before. And he drove them into cap hell before. It was bad, it cost them years to recover. He's just doing it all over again. He is (was) a very good coach, but terrible at managing the cap.
    • https://www.1070thefan.com/blogs/kevins-corner/colts-coverage/colts-say-no-trade-offers-sticking-jacoby-brissett-backup?fbclid=IwAR0IGDgC2r_pBbt7tUzbQjxiBv0zfXiUyxQtxziGhcsvuaRHI3Or6xVIT74   I like Reich's quotes here:  “It’s impossible for me to have a higher opinion of Jacoby than I do,” Reich says. “I said it last year, I think he’s a top 20 quarterback. I still say that. After watching him for a year, this guy’s really good.   “I tell Chris all the time, ‘Please don’t let him go. I don’t care what anybody offers him. Don’t let him go.’ I love Jacoby. The problem is now I’ve gotten to know Jacoby and, at some point, I hope that it works out for Jacoby. But not now.”
    • How is the number of UDFAs significant to anything?     For the record, the Colts actually signed 11 UDFAs...JAC signed 21.    BTW, here are some of the "better teams" and the number of UDFAs this year:   HOU - 20 KC - 23 CHI - 22 NO -17 LAR - 19 LAC - 19   I see no clear correlation between "better teams", thin rosters and UDFAs. There is more of a correlation between the number of draft picks and UDFAs, if anything. Those teams typically had less draft picks...and therefore...more roster spots to give to UDFAs. And UDFAs understand this as well...and see a better path to making a roster if a draft pick is not in their way.   In 2018, the Colts...in the first year of a new offensive and defensive scheme...coming off a 4-win season...signed only 10 UDFAs...because they had 11 draft picks...which makes sense. But that roster was by no means deep.  
    • I suspect, knowing Ballard to date, he is a guy who knew all about all the candidates including Reich, but I think @Valpo2004 did a good job breaking it down.
