Colts Vs. Ravens Monday Night Football Preseason Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Welcome back, Colts Nation!   :default_20smile:  Our Indianapolis Colts continue the 2018 preseason, as they host the visiting Baltimore Ravens, as both teams conclude the Week 2 schedule of the NFL Preseason.

 

Our Colts concluded their 2018 Training Camp at the Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield,  where they held team training camp since July 26.   Andrew Luck's complete recovery from his recent shoulder surgery, and his physical rehab, reportedly has him on track to start on Opening Week in the 2018 NFL Season, in almost two years vs. the Bengals.

 

Ravens  have also  arrived at Indiana to participate in their joint practices with, the Colts Training Camp at the Grand Park Sports Campus since Tuesday.   Both teams not only are playing for real tonight in an NFL, but most of the players, particularly the reserves, and  including the college players not selected, and signed after the recent 2018 NFL Draft, and veteran free agents,  play tonight in game conditions to impress  their  coaching staffs to try to make the final cut to the final 53-man regular season roster,  from the current 90-man preseason roster.

 

Last week's joint practice with the Colts and Ravens, also means the reacquatinance of the the two QB's and selection from the 2012 NFL Draft. #1 Overall Draft Pick Andrew Luck has been a Colt player the past six seasons, while #2 2012 NFL Draft Pick  Robert Griffin III, who also was the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner, was drafted by the Redskins, signed with the Browns, and now the Ravens as a free agent after a one-year absence.  

 

Both Luck and RGIII are only meeting the second time ever in an NFL game, both games including tonight during the preseason.  RGIII and Luck dueled at QB on opposing offenses, and RGIII's Redskins defeated Luck's Colts 30-17 at FedEx Field in Landover, MD, back on August 25, 2012.

 

Colts, all the NFL teams, and even the field officials collectively, are in an ongoing basis, continuing and adjusting to the new helmet, and punt/kickoff return, among the many new rules that were voted by the NFL executives and owners, during the league meetings this past off season,  and will be out for all to see during tonight's Colts/Ravens preseason contest.

 

Colts and Ravens also played in a preseason game also two years ago and played at LOS back on August 20, 2018.  Ravens DB Anthony Levine  intercepted, and scored a defensive two-point conversion from Colts QB Stephen Morris, after Morris threw a 7-yard TD pass to running back Trey Morris on the play prior, to make the game score 18-17 with 4:27 left in the fourth quarter.  Levine's INT made the final score 19-18. 

 

ESPN's new Monday Night Football's TV broadcasting team for the 2018 NFL Season of Joe Tessitore, recently retired Dallas Cowboys Tight End Jason Whiten, and Anthony Darelle 'Booger'  McFarland, are announcing . tonight's Colts/Ravens preseason contest, along with sideline reporter Lisa Salters, with kickoff from the real Lucas Oil Stadium,  right after 8:00PM Eastern Standard Time.

 

Long-time Colts radio play-by play announcer Bob Lamey also decided to retire from his stellar broadcasting career, despite signing his one-year contract, and after and into, one Colts preseason game announced from  Seattle earlier in August.   Matt Taylor will announce the play on an interim basis, joining former Colts QB Jim Sorgi in the booth, and they can be heard on WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070 AM, WLHK  'The Hank" Country 98.1FM, and The Colts Radio Network, beginning with the Pregame coverage at 7:00PM Eastern Standard Time.

 

NO injuries, we wish great luck to the Colts, and all NFL teams make the final 53-man roster after preseason. Protect And Defend Your 'Stable,' - Lucas Oil Stadium,. Stay True To The Blue, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!   :coltslogo:   :cheer::rock: :coltshelmet::colts::1colts:      :cheer::coltslogo:  :D

Last week I was more hyped than I could ever remember being for a preseason game.  Now, though, for this game and the next two, I am just praying the Colts can get through the games with no injuries, as I anxiously await the arrival of the regular season. 

 

Go Colts ... and no injuries!

Hello my name is mary and believe me i am not very knowledgeable of football but i go to games, practices for the colts for the love of my son Dustin Brewer my son lives and breathes the colts win or lose pre season or practice he is there. See i knew about his love for the colts from the book he wrote in 1st grade of what he wanted to be when he grew up and that was a colts player. Well we are going to be at the game tonight and i have always wanted to do something special for him but heck im just a kroger fuel center cashier never will have the means to give him an experience he would never forget at a colts game so i am asking if there is anyone that could help tonight i would be grateful but if not thank you all for listening to me rant lol I love you Dustin Brewer thank you for inviting your mom to go.

I'm a lil worried about Andrew in this one.

The Ravens are gonna be head-hunting and Costanzo and Good are out.  I hope we stick a TE on the left side the WHOLE game.

as Forest's girl  Jenny would say...: "Run Andrew Run!"

protectin from our inexperienced RBs concerns me too.

Just now, Smoke317 said:

Witten sounds like he likes the Colts.  So I’m quickly liking him on Monday Night Football. :thmup:  And Joe Tessitore’s voice sounds ready made for MNF...

Yes, he has a great voice. He is now doing Monday Night Football so I know he can't now but If he took over for Lamey I could live with it.

    • I am late to the party but it doesn't matter because I would've been 1-1 anyway. I had the Lions and Washington so it offsets     Here are my Sunday picks/Monday pick: Ravens 17 Steelers 24 Chargers 19 Bills 27 Titans 27 Colts 30 Panthers 20 Vikings 21 Browns 27 Jags 17 Giants 24 Bengals 10 Cards 27 Pats 23 Dolphins 99 Jets 0 (Fluke's original quote) Saints 24 Broncos 13 49ers 17 Rams 30 Chiefs 34 Bucs 24 Bears 17 Packers 27 Seahawks 31 Eagles 17
    • Yes, love the limited stuff from Harris. I really want to see more routes from him, but overall, love what he's doing. I'd love for him to be a long term answer at slot if Campbell moves to Z.    I'm up in the air on specs. I need to see him hit some long ones, as well as some additional clutch kicks. Glasgow, like I said, I just don't expect much from. Doubt he's ever a contributor on D, but if he kills it on ST, I'm happy.    A buddy of mine (a Ball State grad/fan), thinks Pinter develops into a RT, and the Colts will eventually move Smith over to LT (when AC retires), and let Pinter take RT. I don't know about all that, but I do agree Pinter might develop into more than we think.    I think Pittman will develop into a long term and consistent WR for us. I know he's just starting to emerge, but he just has the look. Good/willing blocker, good hands, etc.. He might not be the 50/50 guy I want, but I also think he might be better at in-stride catching than I thought.    JT, I think he'll be fine once he gets acclimated and use to the run blocking scheme. I don't want to diminish his talent, but most RBs should be able to be successful behind our OL, and he's better than most.    Blackmon is the most interesting to me. He's always been a hammer which I love. He's struggled though in coverage in college, and as we saw, got burnt deep a few games ago. Not sure if he's too aggressive forward, or just struggles with coverage and range. I hope it's just aggressiveness. It definitely helped him when they moved him from CB to S in college, but at the same time, Utah ran a ton of man, which we do not. Love most of what I've seen thus far. I just hope it's not a case where teams get film on him, and start testing him deep a lot. We've been fortunate to play some bad Os early that simply don't go deep a bunch. Will be interesting to follow.
    • It's Rivers he will play, the dude is made of steel  . He played with a torn ACL.
    • I just wish I knew whether it's turf toe or not.
    • For what little it may be worth...   if memory serves me correctly...   we let Desir go one year into a 3-year deal.   I don’t know that we planned to let him go,  but that’s what happened.   I suppose the same could happen to Doyle.   I think what we do with MAC, Burton and the draft will tell us.
