Colts Vs. Jaguars Game Day Thread

Happy New Year,  Colts Nation!  :)     But not entirely happy to  Colts fans  everywhere, as our 2016 Indianapolis Colts are unfoturnately out of the hunt to reach the NFL Playoffs in 2016, since their loss at the Oakland Raiders on December 24.   Colts will try to defeat the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars, with interim coach Doug Marrone at LOS.   A  Colts victory would also equal their   2015 regular season  win total at 8-8  again in 2016.

 

Colts in the past won the AFC South Divison titles with identical 11-5 records in three consecutive seasons, but could not crack beyond 11 wins since the 2009 Colts team won 14 games.

 

This afternoon will also be outside linebacker Robert Mathis's  last game as an Indianapolis Colt, announced this past week his retirement as an active player in the NFL.  Mathis was drafted from Alabama A&M in 2003.  Among many of his achievements  was earning an NFL championship ring with the  Colts team that won Super Bowl XLI,  and both earning and awarded the AFC Defensive Player Of The Year after the 2013 NFL season, and setting the team record with his 128 career sacks.  Mathis is a popular player to Colts fans and and I felt he earned, and certainly deserves  his name in the Colts Ring Of Honor, and perhaps the NFL Pro Football Hall Of Fame, for both his service and achievements.  Well done. Robert!

 

LOS's roof is closed for the 1:05P.M. Eastern Standard Time finale, because sunny skies at 40 degrees, feels like 36 degrees, is the game forecast outside the stadium area in Downtown Indianapolis, along with 0% precipitation, 65% humidity, and  mild southeastern winds at 6 miles per hour.

 

NO injuries, a pleasure posting the Game Day Threads for the 2016 Indianapolis Colts Preseason Schedule, Happy New Year to the Colts Nation as we all enter 2017, win one more game to even your 2016 NFL regular season record again at 8-8, and  for one more game, GO COLTS!!!!!   :coltslogo:     :cheer:     :1colts:    :colts::coltshelmet:   :cheer:  :coltslogo:     :rock:

Almost game time, let's do this !!!

 

On an unrelated note, I got a phone call earlier from my sis in law, she thinks my brother has had a stroke :(  He spent from the end of august thru the early part of november in and out of the hospital and rehab. Not the news I wanted to hear on New year's day.

Thanks again, LOS!

 

JlynRN: prayers for a speedy recovery for your brother.  Just another reminder of how our disappointment in our Colts not being in the postseason should be tempered with what is truly important in life.

 

Thanks MB :)  I appreciate that. He definitely needs all the prayers and good thoughts he can get !!

So sorry for you and your family. I have a brother who was recently diagnosed with a form of very early onset dementia. We need sports for an escape but also reminds us how unimportant they are in the larger scheme of things.

Sorry to hear about your brother, it's rough I know :( My brother has a bad heart, but a transplant at this time is not an option.

    • I just like bringing up stuff when I am wrong because I think it is funny looking back on things + I know I am not right all the time. I said we would be good and make the playoffs with Rivers before 2020. I also hated the Wentz trade. I nailed those.   Regarding QB's today, I look at teams needing really a top 8 QB in the league to win it all. It is just a QB's league. My rankings would be if healthy entering 2023 are: 1. Mahomes 2. Burrow 3. Hurts 4. Allen 5. Rodgers - older but I am just going by 2023 6. I have Jackson here - he will be 100%. 7. Lawrence 8. Herbert   -Dak has an argument for top 8. Cousins/Carr?? Russell Wilson looked real bad last year so who knows about him. Watson is also a mystery. A team like SF is loaded but their downfall will be QB play when they get deep in the playoffs. It has been proven many times now. If SF had a top 8 QB, they would probably win the SB. They usually go to the Championship Game or SB but lose. It will be interesting to see how good Purdy or Lance will be in 2023? Jimmy always took them far but lost. I think a QB like Matt Stafford is washed like Matt Ryan but he got his SB win.   Technically IMO we would have the best QB in the AFC South if we got Lamar but barely because Lawrence is coming and had a good year last year. We also have arguably the best RB in the division when healthy in Taylor, I think Henry will make the Hall of Fame one day but he has been used a lot.
    • Doesn’t like it doesn’t really say anything definitive.   Did he say how many pick’s would be too much.  One, two, three, four, five?  And what round and what year?  What cost is too much?  We have no idea do we.  Doesn’t like doesn’t me he won’t do anything.  
    • Don’t take thinking it won’t happen to mean someone wouldn’t want Lamar.  I’ve gone on the record as saying he’s a special player who will be successful anywhere.  I just don’t think the stars are aligning for him to end up in Indy.  
    • Do you really think the Colts haven’t had those conversations?  Honestly, while I am sure they have one they like more than the others I think they feel they can be successful with most of these four.  If there was just one they had to have they would have done more to explore trading up.
    • How much does age matter.  And this isn't a question about Bennett, it also applies to Hooker and maybe Levis.   I don't understand the idea that a 22 year old guy should be drafted higher...by much.  The rookie contract lasts 5 years, and that's about what to expect his longevity with the team is.  Approaching that point there is a possibility of negotiating a new contract or using the franchise tag (which means that QB is going to have to be really elite QB).  The contract is going to reflect his value at the time,,,that, and if you still want him at all has nothing to do with where he was drafted.   IMO, you draft the QB that has the most talent given where you need to draft him.  Worrying about if he's going to be your QB 8 years from now after going through a series of seasons and business negotiations seems way down the list of factors to consider when drafting a player.
