Colts Vs. 49ers Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts Nation!   :)   Our 1-3 Indianapolis Colts continue honoring former Colts QB Peyton Manning as our Colts host the visiting and winless, 0-4 San Francisco 49ers  at LOS (the building).   49ers are in a rebuilding mode, with new General Manager John Lynch, and new Head Coach Kyle Shanahan.  Colts are  alsoplaying their third NFC West divisional opponent in five games.

 

Retired Colts legend Peyton Manning  earlier this weekend was immortalized with a bronze statue in front of LOS,  honoring his accomplishments as a Colt.  #18 played 14 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, and won Super Bowl Championships with both Super Bowl XLI  (41) for the Colts, and Super Bowl L (50) for the Denver Broncos.  Manning will also be honored i for his accomplishments as a Colt in today's game, and ahead for him his induction into the Pro Football Hall Of Fame in Canton, Ohio in the first ballot.

 

Current Colts incumbent QB Andrew Luck  also returned to practice last week, but Jacoby Brissett still starts for the Colts vs. the 49ers, while Andrew watches from the sidelines.

 

Today current third-year Colts running back Frank Gore also plays his first game facing his former team, the 49ers.  Gore played for San Francisco between 2005 through 2015, and was named five times into the Pro Bowl, a second team Pro Bowler while he was a 49er.

Gore also helped San Francisco to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans, but the Baltimore Ravens defeated his 49ers 34-31.

 

NO injuries, win your second game in 2017, and keep the 49ers winless at LOS, and GO COLTS!!!!!   :cheer: :coltslogo: . :1colts:  :colts: :coltslogo:   :cheer:    :rock:

    • Here is another one. This is from July.    
    • Yup, it's been bad. It's not even worth taking the time to pull all-22 at this point. Those that deny the problem (missing wide open WRs) are simply disingenuous and clearly ride-or-die at this point. We've played 3 very bad passing Ds three weeks in a row, and there's simply no excuse for not hitting those guys. 
    • *What I meant was that I much rather prefer CJ or LW.
    • TY won't fetch a ton given his injury history the last two years. He'd absolutely get a contract from a lot of teams, but teams won't be knocking down the door to give up a 1R pick for him right now. And especially with this year's WR class.
    • I've said there are several kinds of leadership..... I can provide a pretty good breakdown of multiple seminars if you'd like, or the key ingredients from a few proven sports "leaders", but you'd just try to pull it apart like above lol and it would be a waste of time.   In short, some lead by performing, some lead by work habits, some lead by taking on a governing type persona (vocal about accountability), plus others, etc. etc.., and many a combination. And there are personality types within those leadership types. Some are just charismatic, some are ballers, some are authoritarians, some are Laissez-faire, and many more.... And there are leaders in every unit or position group.    Not sure what type of leadership JB provides, but we've heard he's vocal. I'd bet he has good work habits too. What we know is in a lot of games, he's not providing leadership by performance, which in sport is just as important. He may be leading by example in some ways in practice and in the locker room, but failing on the field at times. And as you know in sports, respect must be earned, and some players (personality types) don't give it (respect) unless the performance is there. And then there's experience and age....  All those things go together to make a "leader"...    And we all know teams take on identities, and a lot of time that identity comes from one side of the ball or one unit. Ray Lewis was the unquestioned leader and identity of the Ravens for many years and he wasn't a QB.   In terms of all things Colts, doubt the D needs much from him, so lets talk O.... I really doubt the OL needs much of anything from JB. Nelson and AC certainly don't. Nelson has been an alpha his entire life, was early on at ND, and is probably more of an external team O identity than JB currently. I'll take his NJ-esque, sumo looking, Taekwondo doing, A$$-kicking style and identity any day. He's not letting any one in the OL unit slack or go half speed. Doubt the RBs need a lot from JB.   The WRs, they probably need more than anyone. And honestly how do you think they view JB when they are working very hard to get open, are running wide open, yet JB fails to see them or are unwilling to throw it to them? How much respect do you give to a guy who probably preaches "do your job" to everyone, yet makes it hard for them to do their job.   In short, give me a guy that performs. Most successful QBs in college have a level of leadership quality or they wouldn't have done well leading their colleges. And... Those that weren't ideal leaders in college, but still did well (like Kelly), only prove you don't need it to be QB.    And finally, bottom line, right now the whole "leadership" conversation, regardless of importance, is being used as a deflection from talking about his deficiencies, and a reason not to upgrade/improve...
