Colts Vs. Titans Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi,  Colts fans!  :default_20smile:   Our 4-5 Indianapolis Colts have an opportunity later this afternoon to even their record to 5-5, and win their fourth straight regular season game, since their 2014 AFC South Division Championship season, when the improved Tennessee Titans come to Downtown Indianapolis, and a win by the Colts would also leave both  teams even at .500 and 5-5.

 

Colts have already won three straight regular season games for the first time since their 2015 NFL Season.  A win by the visiting Titans would be their fourth straight win since  achieving it twice in the same 2014 NFL season.  That year the Colts had a five  game and four game seperate winning streaks, on their way to win the AFC South Title.

 

An oddity and quirk in the Colts remaining schedule is that the Titans is the third and last AFC South divisional opponent to visit and play at the real Lucas Oil Stadium this season.  Indianapolis in two weeks will finally play all three of their AFC South divisional opponents,  in away and road games in December, at Jacksonville, Houston, and Tennessee. 

 

Also in December, Colts also have  yet  to host and  NFC East interdivisional opponent at LOS,  until the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants play consecutive  games at Indianapolis. Colts also  host one more AFC opponent, the Miami Dolphins at LOS.

 

Indianapolis and Tennessee are playing in their 48th game this afternoon, with the Colts leading the all-time regular season series, plus 1 postseason game, with 31 wins and 16 losses.  Colts will try to win their first game in two seasons, after the Titans swept the series in the 2017 season.  Titans first won 36-22 at Nashville back on October 15, and won the rematch later at Indianapolis, winning 20-16 back on November 26, 2017.

 

Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes to Done Moncrief and T.Y. Hilton, Robert Turban scored his 1-yard TD run, and Adam Vinitieri kicked his three PAT's, and his 49 yard field goal, to help the Colts defeat the Titans in their last win, played at the real LOS, back on November 20, 2016.

 

There will be a halftime ceremony  today for former and retired Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne as he will be inducted and immortalized into the Ring Of Honor, for his achievements and production on the field with the Indianapolis Colts. 

 

LOS's retractable roof is closed for this afternoon's 1:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because cloudy skies at 41 degrees, feels like 37 degrees, is the local game forecast, along with 15% precipitation, 84% humidity, and northern winds at 7 miles per hour.

 

Head Linesman John Hussey leads his NFL Officiating Crew to supervise the game action between the Colts and Titans.

 

Today's game between the Colts and Titans continues the NFL's annual 'Salute To Service' campaign. honoring our US military personnel in past and present, who sacrificed t serve  our country and away from their families to maintain America's freedom.  Colts and the Titans players and their coaching staffs may volutarily wear NFL authorized military team apparel by Nike and New Era during the game from their sidelines.

 

Also my Happy Thanksgiving to Indianapolis Colts fans with your family, relatives, and close friends, here on the Colts Fan Forum and Colts fans everywhere! Let's also see our Colts win this game for Reggie Wayne this afternoon!

 

NO injuries to the Colts players, Dismember The Titans , Go Blue Nation, Win Your Fourth Straight Game for yourselves and new Ring Of honor Inductee and former Colts player Reggie Wayne,  And LET'S GO COLTS!!!!! :cheer:  :coltslogo:  :1colts:   :colts:   :coltshelmet:   :coltslogo:  :cheer:  :rock:  :D

Thanks again, LOS.  Happy Thanksgiving to you as well and to all my Colts family!

 

Man, I am so torn as to what will happen today.  Someone has to hawk Mariotta, we're short at Safety...tough game.  Gotta rack up some points and get off the field on 3rd down.

27-24 Colts.

 

Go Colts.  All day, every day!

    • OK.....   Found it.   There's a section, roughly 11:30 minutes long.   It runs from approx 35:00 to approx 46:30.   Kevin almost downplays that he he has sources,  says he's heard talk,  but he makes a very strong and compelling case where he connects the dots.     And the dots seem to connect.   Dodds interviews for the Detroit job.   Somewhere in that talk,  the Lions likely share that Stafford wants to move on.  And the Lions will look to trade him.    That there's no way that Rivers would retire after talking up wanting to come back,  after recently moving his family to Indy, and his kids have been enrolled in exclusive schools in the area,  and then turn around and suddenly hang 'em up.    That Indy wanted to treat Rivers with respect and likely said to him that he can handle his retirement any way he wants,  and the colts will support that.    Kevin says Indy fans should feel good if this is true,  because to him it signals that Indy and Ballard have a plan.   He also turns around and says if the trade for Stafford doesn't work out,  then he hopes they can trade up and draft their QB of the future.   That things will get difficult for the Colts if the Stafford deal doesn't happen,  the Colts situation suddenly looks much more difficult.   Kevin clearly says this is his interpretation of the events.   I think he makes a strong argument.   But he does not cite sources.  He didn't get an inside tip.   But this is how he thinks the scenario played out.   Go listen to the passage.   See what you think.  
    • Cowboys have ~13m in cap space going into the 2021 offseason.  Most FAs are not worthy to resign it appears except for Jourdan Lewis and S Xavier Woods.  If the Cowboys tag Dak they will be immediately in the red.  So where is this extra cap space coming from to resign or tag Dak?    Logical the Boys are at the point where they must decide to cut young starting LG Connor Wiliams save ~1.8m against the cap.  Seems also need to cut K Greg Zuerlein and add another 1.5m savings.  Randy Gregory would be an easy cut as well saving another 1.2m.  Now we are talking about ~18.3 in available cap space.  Can keep cutting players like TE Dalton Shultz boost cap by another 1.5m.  Punter Chris Jones would be another likely candidate imo to get cut and save another 1.4m and now were only at 21.2m in savings.  That’s the bulk of their team from where I can see them gaining capital back.  One other player is WR Michael Gallup that could save them 1.7m but can realistically see used as trade bait to gain extra draft picks.  Bottom line is I cannot see the Cowboys resigning or even attempting to franchise tag Prescott and have no choice but to draft a low cost young QB replacement in the draft with their first pick.  Don't be surprised to see Dallas move up on Day 1 and trade Gallup for the lost draft capital to help offset.   Welcome Dak to the Colts and let’s go digest the rest of offseason.  When the Rams signed QB Goff to an average of $33.5 million per year Prescott reportedly was seeking a new deal in the $34 million per year range.  I didn’t add salary incentives this year just base salary due to cap reductions this year but added $10 million bonus each next 3 years and increased pay scale from 35, 36, 38, 40 million next few years.   64.887m cap space 2021 * updated OTC as of 01/27   Retired Rivers AC   Cut Skia Moore – 850k   FA Signings QB Dak Prescott - 35m increasing 40m next 4 years LT Roderick Johnson 2m/yr.  PFF stated he played 245 OL snaps only allowing 3 penalties and 1 sacks last season.  Would be a solid acquisition even coming from the Texans. RDE Dawuane Smoot 5m/4yr.  A little faster than Muhammad should be good in-house competition LCB Ahkello Witherspoon 3m/3yrs – Real deal CB imo get this guy signed ASAP even if means deselecting another   Colts FA’s lost Autry Hooker Clark – wanted to retire Walker JR Mack Wilson STP Houston Green Brissett Hilton   Unrestricted Free Agents: Carrie STP 1 / 1.5m – solid back  Hunt 2 /950k   Burton 1 / 3m – played 33% of snaps Stallworth - 1 / 750 k * updated colts already extended Dulin 2 / 1m STP *update Colts already extended Rhodes –played 87% snaps on a 1.5m contract resign 3m/year deal Muhammad (starter) – 4 / 3m first year Odum resign less than RFA 1m   Restricted Free Agents:  MAC UDFA – 2nd Round Tender 3.422m Pascal RFA 2nd Round tender 3.422m Smith ERFA 1 / 850 k STP   OTC says 74 players under contract and OTC Cap Room projected 9.322m for 2021   Draft Needs: LT, WR, LDE, SS, RB   Draft:   R1 LT Christian Darrisaw (Virginia Tech) – Long shot but my dream selection here and pending Combine could see him move higher in RD 1   R2 WR Nico Collins (Michigan) - 2019 led Big 10 receivers 0.0% drop rate and 81.3% contested catch rate and had the highest broken-tackle rate   R3 Edge/LB Charles Snowden (Virginia) - Snowden stands 6-foot-7. SAM linebacker blitzing / played both ends or more of a 3-4 OLB.  Great football awareness very solid in run support.  2018 breakout star along with Rock Ya.  With his size and speed like to switch him to 4-3 Edge.   R4 ILB Garret Wallow (TCU) Extremely athletic with impressive sideline-to-sideline speed and can lineup in the box, cover the slot and has a good grasp of where he should be in zone defense.   R5 SS Divine Deablo (Virginia Tech) - has elite size and excellent speed.  Very strong player/good tackler.  Bit tight in his hips limit his range but we need a decent backup and he should do fine.   R6 RB Devin Wynn (Furman) – Decent ground game.  Rarely used in pass plays.   R7 WR Emeka Emezie (NC St) - Z position size and speed to separate.  Willing blocker in Run game.  Impressive hands in contested engagements.  Impressive layout diving catch vs Virginia 6:13 3Q.  Originally struggled with dropped passes but cleaned that up this year.   UDFA MLB Blake Gallagher (Northwestern) – Bit on the small side 6’0” but one heck of a tackler in the open field.  All-Big 10 honors in 2018 after a campaign that saw him tally 127 stops (7.5 for a loss) and an interception.  Wisconsin game had a good QB strip for turnover.  Good chase angles and hustle down field.  Tip ball caused team INT.  Impressing blitz sack.  Looks good in both run, blitz and coverage support.   Overall a solid group to build upon.  For 2022 can see our focus on TEs, RCB and potentially LDE if we move Snowden to SLB.  Shall see how well Wallow does his rookie season before adjusting.  We got a young QB for long-term.   The Colts should be playoff contenders for many years.   3WR 1TE   QB Dak Prescott Jacob Eason   RB Jonathan Taylor Nyheim Hines Jordan Wilkins Devin Wynn   WR Nico Collins Emeka Emezie Ashton Dulin Gary Jennins   WR Michael Pittman Jr. Dezmon Patmon Quartney Davis   WR Zach Pascal Parris Campbell DeMichael Harris   TE Jack Doyle Trey Burton Mo Alie-Cox Noah Togiai   LT Christian Darrisaw Roderick Johnson   LG Quenton Nelson Joey Hunt   C Ryan Kelly Danny Pinter   RG Mark Glowinski Jake Eldrenkamp   RT Branden Smith Will Holden   Base 4-3 D   LDE Charles Snowden Ben Banogu Kemoko Turay   LDT DeForest Buckner Tyquan Lewis   RDT Grover Stewart Taylor Stallworth   RDE Al-Quadin Muhammad Dawuane Smoot Kemoko Turay   WLB Darius Leonard Matthew Adams   MLB Garret Wallow Zaire Franklin Jordan Glasgow   SLB Bobby Okereke E.J.

    • 36-minute mark.   His sources are solid.  I know that for a fact.
    • I'm over 20 minutes in and barely a word about Rivers.   Not even a tease that Bowen has inside info about how and why Rivers resigned so soon.     Nothing.   Sigh......   Ughhhh.....  
    • OK, well I  hope Ballard considers my own favorite: Johnny Football! He could create multiple different directions.
