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:

    • Interesting theory. However, knowing what we know about Ballard, I don't see this as the approach he will take.   One big reason is that the UDFA pool will be thinner this year...for many of the reasons you mentioned. COVID has really created a lot of unknowns and hampered players from rising up draft boards. And since the NCAA allowed an additional year of eligibility...many players are returning for a "super senior" to increase their draft stock for next year. This will create more competition for UDFAs...so if you want to ensure that you get a certain player...it's best to have and use a late pick on him.   So what I think you will actually see is an opposite approach where Ballard will look to acquire a few more late Day 3 picks, that he can use in lieu of competing for priority UDFAs from a list that isn't as strong as year's past. So you will probably see late Day 3 picks attached to any trade backs.   And then for significant draft capital via trade, I think he will be eyeing picks from next year's draft. I know people love to mock the Colts getting back all of these additional Day 2 picks this year in a trade back. And that makes sense...since they don't have a 3rd round pick. But they are down a (likely) 1st next year (at least a 2nd). And that's in a class where the player pool will be larger. Some might argue that it makes losing that pick sting a little less, but I don't think Ballard sees it that way. He wants to be able to pick from as large of a pool as possible.    So I think Ballard will look to recoup as much draft value, if not increase it, to take advantage of next year's class. That inactivity in FA is likely in part because of next year's draft. In a larger draft class, even late comp picks will have some value. If he can get a couple of extra picks back for next year...plus a late comp pick or two...I think they will prefer that method. 
    • One of two things:   Take Brady in round 5 of the 2000 draft and let him hold a clipboard for a decade or hire Ballard in 2012.  Grigson was younger and no more established than Ballard at the time.
    • I don't know what to think. Purely scheme-wise and experience with simialar offense-wise IMO Lance makes the most sense... but I can see Shannahan liking Fields in that same role too.  That's the weirdest of smokescreen/smoke signals I've seen recently in the draft. 
    • Ballard isn’t going to trade back every year. It’s just become an obsession with a lot fans that he will.
