Hi, Colts fans!   :)   Our Indianapolis Colts have an opportunity to win two consecutive games in a row and also  even their season record to 4-4 for the first time in 2016 Sunday afternoon, as they host the 4-2 Kansas City Chiefs. Chiefs and Colts are playing in their 25th all-time meeting, including 20 regular season and 4 postseason games, and the Colts and Chiefs are playing a regular season game in LOS (the building) for the first time in five years.

 

Colts are also attempting to win their first regular season home game over the K.C. Chiefs at LOS in six years.  Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri kicked four field goals during each quarter from 20, 24, 47, and 42 yards, before Mike Hart ran an 11-yard touchdown with 4:02 remaining in the fourth quarter, to help the Colts win 19-9 back on October 10, 2010.

 

Indianapolis also defeated Kansas City in their most recent meeting, played  during the NFL Playoffs.  Andrew Luck threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton, with 4:21 remaining in the fourth quarter, and Adam Vinatieri broke the tie with his PAT, to help the Colts edge the Chiefs 45-44, during the 2013 AFC Wild Card Game, played at LOS back on January 4, 2014.

 

Indianapolis also leads the all-time series with 16 wins and 8 losses, dating back to their first game on September 28, 1970, after the AFL-NFL merger.

 

Spero Dedes and former Cincinnati Bengals defensive back Solomon Wilcots are announcing  the live the TV game commentary for the NFL On CBS, and seen regionally, and locally on WTTV CBS Channel 4, live on HD.

 

LOS retractable roof may be closed for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff because gametime and stadium temperatures outside is forecast at 69 degrees, along with 30% precipitation, 69% humidity, and northwestern winds at 8 miles per hour,  despite sunny skies from late morning and noontime on Sunday, showers will gradually progress throughout todays game.

 

Colts will both recognize Halloween and the last Sunday gameday in October of the NFL's 'A Crucial Catch' campaign to raide awareness of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

 

NO injuries, even your record with your fourth win Sunday, and GO COLTS!!!!!  :coltslogo:  :cheer:   :1colts::colts:  :coltshelmet:  :cheer:    :coltslogo:    :rock:

    • Would be a good deal for the Pats, not the most unbelievable trade either.
    • You ask a lot of good questions.    Unfortunately, I don't think that I, or anyone else,  has a lot of good answers.   Here's what I think we know.   Over The Cap has the Colts with just over $26 Mill.   Spotrac shows less,  and after the Carrie signing, I think we're going to be at $22.4 or so.   I also think we'd like to find a way to thread the financial needle and sign both Houston and Ertz (as a FA).   Even if you allowed $12 Mil for that, (Houston $7 mill and Ertz $5m)  that would leave us with roughly 10-$12 mill, give or take.   Currently, with our 6 picks,  Spotrac shows that will take roughly $6.5 to sign them.   But we all know Ballard has never had a draft class with less than 8 picks,  so expect two more, and that will bring the money needed to sign them to roughly $8 Mill.   Suddenly, we'd be down to $2-4 Mill and change.   Now, this is the part, where I don't know if @w87r  will step in for more financial adjustments that will show that we will have a few more $ than my math shows.    He's a wiz that way!      But typically, teams want 5-10% in reserve for in-season transactions.   BUT....   can you afford to have that much in reserve when your cap has shrunk to $185?     Yes?    No?    I don't know?     Who knows?   So....    lots of questions that need answers....    and we just don't know?    Both Houston and Ertz look like situations that might not resolve themselves until May......    So, we're left hanging....  
    • I vaguely remembered something like this but misremembered that I saw it on Hard Knocks so figured it couldn't haven't been the Colts.   Now that you mention this though, I think you're right.
    • OK....    I thought what I was saying was pretty obvious, but perhaps not,  so I'll try again....   If Chris Ballard wants to blow up and destroy everything he's spent the last 4 years building, I can't think of anything that would do it better than what you suggest.   I'm NOT saying CB should give Q and Darius blank contracts and say "fill in with the numbers you want"....   but CB will re-sign them and they will be big and generous contracts done without a lot of public fighting (unless someone gets WAY out of line with what they're asking.   But I'm not expecting that.)   Ballard has built a franchise built on culture.   We talk about here.   The team talks about it non-stop.    It's buzzing all over the city of Indianapolis.   It's even now buzzing around the NFL.    To suddenly play hardball with your best players, or worse,  trade them because they don't play the right position,  would literally destroy what he's built.   Blow-up the locker room.  Undercut  the relationships Frank Reich has with his players.   The rest of the team would see how we treated Q and Darius and think....   "why should I play hard for this franchise?   F*** them!   I'll ask to be traded the first chance I get."   In case you haven't noticed,  players demanding to be traded has caught on in the NFL.   It's not just for basketball or baseball anymore.   Ballard would lose all credibility with everyone.   He'd have wasted his 4 years here.   Reich would be screwed.   The front office would be furious.   Irsay would likely want to fire him.   It would destroy this franchise.   Final thought....    since you love to throw around what Belichick does....    deal with this...   when the Patriots were winning Super Bowls and making deep playoff runs year after year...     do you know who some of the top players were, besides Brady?     Logan Mankins,  offensive guard.   Rob Gronkowski,  Tight End.    Vince Wilfork,  Nose Tackle.  Donte Hightower, Inside linebacker.    Four key players.    All paid very well.    All Belichick favorites.    None, with the possible exception of Gronk played a sexy, glamour position that you obsess about.       I expect to agree with NONE of this.    But as someone who covered the NFL for 30 years as a member of the media,  and has followed football as close as I could for 25 more years (55 in all)  this is my judgement what would happen if Ballard would do what you suggest.     Sorry.    Good luck.....  
    • There are a few national writers who have speculated that Justin Houston will sign elsewhere either during or just after the draft. A fair question if that happens is: what are the Colts’ remaining options?  1. Sign someone like Melvin Ingram or Ryan Kerrigan. Not very good options, but I’d take Ingram.  2. Draft at least one DE early. This is the best and most obvious option, but after the second round, the pickings are going to be slim. So it will have to be a Day 1 or early Day 2 pick.  3. Roll with what you’ve got. Ugly option to even think about.  Conclusion: At this point, the Colts’ pass rush is seriously hurting if Houston isn’t resigned. Ballard of course knows this. Here’s hoping there’s a breakthrough in negotiations pre-draft, because signing Houston gives the team flexibility in the draft.  If the Colts allow Houston to sign elsewhere, given that this is a weak DE draft class, the Colts are putting themselves in a position where they HAVE to get a top DE early. And that could have them reaching Day 1 to make sure they do. To avoid that, give Houston a sweetener in the offer and get him signed!
