Colts @ Los Angeles Rams Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

NFL regular season has finally arrived Colts fans!  :)  Our Indianapolis Colts begin their quest to reclaim the AFC South Divisional title, as they are in sunny and warm Southern California to play the Rams, who returned to Los Angeles after a 21-year absence. 

 

Rams as a franchise has doubled it's value and worth since returning to L.A., and in 2020 will share their new domed stadium with the transplanted San Diego Chargers, currently being built in the old Holllywood Park racetrack in Inglewood.

 

Andrew Luck still travelled with the Colts for this afternoon's game.  Scott Tolzien will start for the Colts at QB, while Jacoby Bissett will be his backup.

 

Colts are coming in their five past regular seasons since 2012,   three AFC South Titles with identical 11-5 records, followed by two consecutive 8-8 seasons. Colts will try to reach the playoffs for the first time in three years.

 

Colts are playing a regular season game inside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for the first time in almost  42 years, since the Rams defeated the then Baltimore Colts by the score of 24-13 back on October 5, 1975.  But the Colts seek to end a very long drought this afternoon by winning their first game at the LAMC in almost 47 years.  Baltimore Colts last defeated the Rams at the LAMC by the score of 13-7 way back on December 21, 1969.

 

Rams also defeated the Colts in their only regular season meeting at Anaheim Stadium 31-17, on September 17, 1989.   Colts also played two road games at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Missouri., Rams won 42-17 in the season finale back on December 30, 2001, and their last road meeting  back on October 25, 2009. Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes for the Colts 42-6 win  in their last road meeting in Missouri.

 

Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts will announce the game commentary, with Scott Kaplan as the sideline reporter and interviewer for The NFL On CBS, seen regionally in the mainland US, and in Indianapolis on WTTV CBS Channel 4, with coverage beginning at 4:15PM Eastern Standard Time.

 

 

 

NO injuries, get off to a fast start winning your first regular season win, in your first visit in L.A since 1975, and GO COLTS!!!!!:rock::coltslogo::1colts::colts::coltslogo:

Here we are once again, this will be my 34th season as a Colts fan starting off watching on opening day! Go Colts.

Here is some history for you Indianapolis Colts fans, since in Indianapolis, the Colts have compiled a 280-247 Regular Season record from 1984-2016. They have made 5 AFC Title Games = 1995/2003/2006/2009/2014. They have made 2 SuperBowls = 2006/2009. Most importantly they have won a SuperBowl = 2006. Not sure what 2017 will bring but the schedule is favorable and if Andrew Luck gets healthy the sky is the limit.

You got that right. It would be nice to have just a regular NFL show that just sticks to football instead all this crap these clowns come up with. It's all about face time and who can come up with the next catchy phrase.

Thanks again for getting us started, LOS!

 

Let's get off to a good start.  I don't agree with having ST as our starting QB, but he is, so I want him to succeed beyond my expectations.  D has to step up and gel quickly while Luck heals.  Hopefully our kids on D grow up quickly, cause we're going to be depending on them a LOT to cover our lack of pass rush.

GO COLTS!!  All day, every day.  :1colts:

Anything is possible. Until proven otherwise I go into every season thinking every game is winnable.  If we can learn to win with defense and run game, when Luck returns we could be a very dangerous team. You can't coach effort, as a fan I want to see our guys play their tails off! 

 

GO :coltslogo:  !!!!

    • Appreciate the response.   A few thoughts to share….   i think Irsay only steps down IF his health deteriorates.  No use in comparing him to Kraft, his health appears to be better even though he’s much older.     But if Irsay stepped aside, here’s why I don’t see the daughters blowing things up and starting over.   If they fire Ballard — fine.  But if they also fire Dodds and Brown, at that point, I think you’d see the rest of the scouting department resign (if they weren’t fired too).  They will all get good jobs elsewhere too.     At that point, Steichen is surrounded by very few who know him.  Worse for the daughters…. There would then be a clear line.   With Irsay vs with the daughters.  And if the new GM doesn’t do well and things go south, then the blame won’t go as much to the new GM as it will to the daughters who decided to blow things up.   They’ll be the focus of incredible hate if the new regime makes fans long for what looks like the good old days of the Ballard years.      The argument for not hiring Dodds or Brown seems to be little more than Ballard-hate.  Those people want nothing more to do with anyone associated with Chris Ballard.   Guilt by association, not because of ability.      Thats why I described hiring one of Dodds or Brown as the easiest, simplest, cleanest move to make.  Much less risk.  But blowing it up and starting over is the far higher risk move.  Threading a tiny needle hoping to get it right.     By the way, if you fire Ballard and company and hire a new GM, who does those interviews?   Honestly, who?   Who would you feel good about conducting the interviews of the new GM?      Firing someone is easy.  Hiring the right person is really hard.    Thanks for your patience. 
    • I just want to be on record now. If the Colts fire Ballard for whatever reason in the next few years, I have no clue what direction they will go. Just wanted to get that out there in case any of you were wondering my opinion on this. 
    • I understand there are a lot of people that don’t know the story. I for one am burnt out on it. I do find it funny they “stole” the Ravens from Cleveland but whine about the Colts leaving. Sports bring out the best homers and team spirit. 
    • Colts by 17. Going to be a rough week for you buddy.    Thats a joke. I have no idea but would probably lean towards the Packers winning if I had to choose. I do think it’s great you may have transitioned to a third franchise QB in a row. I hope Love has a great career for you guys. Always had a soft spot for the Packers and they would probably be my team if I didn’t love the Colts. I enjoy it when you guys are good. Best of luck this year!!  
    • Packers have a pretty strong and balanced team. The defense was able to hold the Chiefs to a low score last year while the offense was perhaps the only one to score over 24 points on the Chiefs defense.    But really it’s hard to say as of right now. Let’s see how everyone fares during training camp and after their season openers. Lots of things can change.
