Collts @ Seahawks Preseason Game Night Thread

Recommended Posts

Greetings, and welcome back to Colts and live NFL Football, and here in  the Colts Game Day Forum, Colts fans!  :default_20smile:  Our Indianapolis Colts are in the Pacific Northwest region of our USA, as they begin their enduring 2018 NFL Season, as our Colts play the Seattle Seahawks in the first of four preseason games.  Though tonight is just and only their first preseason game, the Colts will try to win in Seattle during the preseason since 2000.

 

Matt Taylor and Rick Venturi return this summer to announce  the live game action all four Colts preseason games, along with sideline reporter Caroline Cann live on WXIN FOX Channel 59 in Indianapolis, IN, and the Colts TV Network.

 

Clear skies at 75 degrees is the local game forecast inside CenturyLink Field for the 10:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with mild northern winds at 4 miles per hour.

 

NO injuries to the both the Colts and Seahawks players, as they audition this month to make the cut from the current 90-man team roster in the preseason, to the final 53-man roster in September, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!

Thanks for getting us off on the right foot this year, LOS.  Looking forward to seeing some rust-shedding from #12 in his first live performance in over a season.  I know we won't see a lot of fun stuff from either side of the ball, more the basics to see where we stand, but it's still football!

 

Can't wait to see Nelson, Hines, Cain and Smith get some burn on the offensive side, and Leonard on the D side.  C'mon rookies, let's see what you've got!

GO COLTS!  All day, every day.

What’s the first Colts TD gonna be?

My guess is from AL to Eric Ebron.

 

Go Colts!

Thanks LOS. This will be my 35th season as a Colts fan (since 1984) and this is the 1st time I have cared about a Pre-Season game. The return of Luck is huge for this franchise. Can't wait to watch him play tonight.

Things Im looking for:
O-Line (Nelson) and how he handles someone other than a Colts defender not named Autry

 

Defense: How they react to what develops, if they're just slow to react or if they're just not up to it (possible scheme errors?)

 

Run Blocking

 

O-Line scheme

 

O-Line

 

 

 

 

 

 

So like, thats all I care about is really the O-Line. Like, thats all. They're going to be the biggest indication of how this season rolls

Looks like I’m going to get hit with  a strong thunderstorm right around kickoff, and will probably lose my satellite signal! Anybody know if the game will be replayed later this week?

FINALLY...close to game time.  Hopefully the online link to FOX 59 stays up for those of us not in Indy.  Somehow I think not, but we can only hope.

    • So what??? The options are better for PATs, hands down. FGs, Vinny seems to be better from beyond 45, so I’d say go for 2 after a TD and take a penalty for Vinny to kick it from beyond 45, lol  
    • He make all his XP? I can live with misses on FGs here and there but not XPs
    • McLaughlin pulled a Vinny...  There went his chance. Lol. 
    • That's fair, but here's the thing, I think most of us realized that when the Colts were at 5-2, with the way the Colts had won close, 1-possesion games and lost to teams they had no business losing to (including the Raiders at home), that the Colts probably weren't quite as good as their record indicated.   Conversely, when the Colts were 1-5 last year, and then started to blow out the bad teams on their schedule (something that the '19 team is incapable of), I think we realized that the Colts were probably much better than their record indicated.   Which brings me to my next point.  Football Outsiders did a "study" where they analyzed every single regular season game from 1995-2004 to see whether teams that built their records on close wins over good teams did better in the postseason than teams that padded their records with big wins over bad teams.   They did this evaluation based on counting the numbers of "GUTS" and "STOMPS."   STOMP: A win by at least 14 points over a team that will finish the year below .500. GUT: A win by 1-8 points over a team that will finish the year above .500.   The 2003 Patriots are the only team to lead the league in GUT wins and make the Super Bowl.   TL;DR: Winning a bunch of one-possession games, particularly against .500 or sub-.500 teams is oftentimes a strong indicator that a team is not an elite postseason team.   The Colts are winning some of their one-possession games against .500-level teams, but they're also losing a fair share against sub-.500, which is an even bigger red flag.   Full "study" - https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stat-analysis/2005/fo-fox-guts-and-stomps
    • McLaughlin just pulled a Vinny vs the Steelers.  Guess that's a no on him too. Lol.
