Colts @ Steelers Preseason Game Night Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts Nation!  :) Our Indianapolis Colts are still seeking both their first win, and preseason win, as they are in The Steel City to visit and play the Pittsburgh Steelers.    


Colts are playing their first preseason game at Pittsburgh in five years. Steelers kicker Dan Hrappman kicked the game-winning 45-yard field goal with 9 minuites left in the fourth quarter, to defeat our Colts 26-24, back on August 19, 2012.


Third preseason game also traditionally features the starting and first-string units of the offense, defense, and special teams, stay on the field and allowed the most playing time, usually through the first half.  Some of those veteran first-string players might still not make the 53- man roster, and are still evaluated like the rest of the reserve and free agent players.


WXIN Fox 59 is televising the Colts @ Steelers beginning with the Preegame Show at 7:00PM Eastern Time.


Mostly sunny skies at 72 degrees is the game forecast inside Heinz Field. for the the 7:35PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 0% precipitation, 53% humidity, and east/northeast winds at 5 miles per hour.


Good luck to our Colts and the rest of the NFL teams continue to form their 53-man regular season roster, with the reserve players, backups and signed and unsigned free agents, seek and audition for playing time on the playing field, while at the same time the Chuck Pagano and his coaching staff make the roster cut from the current 90-man to 53-man roster by September 3.


No injuries, and LET'S GO FOR Win #1 COLTS!!!   :rock:    :coltslogo::1colts::colts::coltslogo:

If we don't convert 3rd downs tonight then this forum is going to go nuts. And rightfully so. We are 5 for 30 in two preseason games. That MUST improve if want any chance of winning in the regular season. 


No three and outs. We need first downs and good yardage on every drive. Can't keep putting it all on the defense. 


We also MUST be better on first down. Can't keeping seeing 2nd and long situations. This means better play calling and execution.


Tolzien MUST look down the field. He cannot check down on 90% of the plays. He needs to grow a pair and throw the ball down the field. No risk; No glory. 


Last but not least - No Excuses!
