Colts @ Bills Preseason Game Night Thread

Recommended Posts

Welcome back, Colts fans!  :default_20smile:  Our Indianapolis Colts begins  both their 71th season as a member of the NFL as they start their 2019 NFL Preseason Schedule through the rest of August, and the NFL celebrates their 100th anniversary, as the Colts are in Western New York state to play the Buffalo Bills.

 

Frank Reich begins his second full season as the Colts Head Coach. NFL Comeback  Andrew Luck also begins his seventh season in the NFL as a Colt player, and his second full season 

 

WR T.Y. Hilton also looks recovered and healthy after enduring leg and ankle injuries he endued during December and the Colts playoffs games at Houston and Kansas City,  and off-season surgery and rehab.

 

The 2019 NFL Draft class also makes their debut on the playing field, to see live game action tonight, with their ten drafted players, and led by CB Rock Ya-Shin from Temple University.

 

A few of the established Colts veteran players including Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton may be limited offensive plays, while the rookies, drafted and undrafted, even signed free agents and veterans, have a chance to get noticed by the coaches with their plays, as all of them try to make the cut from the current 90-man training camp roster, to the final 53-man regular season roster.

 

Colts and Bills have played 60 games between each other since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, with the Bills leading the all-time regular season series at 37-32-1, but are playing their ninth preseason game.  Winner will break the current 4-4 preseason record.

 

Indianapolis  evened the preseason record  with Buffalo in both teams last meeting played three years ago, edging the Bills, also played at Buffalo back on August 13.  Like tonight, the Colts played their first preseason game at the Bills instead of their second game in 2016.  Colts were scheduled to play in the Pro Football Hall Of Fame Game at Canton, Ohio with the Packers on August 7, 2016, but was cancelled because of loose turf, field conditions.

 

WXIN FOX Channel 59 is televising all four 2019 Colts preseason games, beginning with their pregame show at 6:30 PM, followed by the game coverage at 7:00 PM EST.  WXIN FOX 59  the flagship station in the Colts Preseason Television Network, with 10  network affiliates, 9 in Indiana, and 1 in Champaign, Illinois, all games seen live on HD.

 

A great evening for NFL football tonight at Western New York State, as Sunny skies at 73 degrees, is the game forecast inside New Era Cap Field at Orchard Park, NY, for the 7:05 PM kickoff, along with 7% precipitation, 67% humidity, and western winds at 11 miles per hour.

 

Colts are wearing their white helmets, Nike blue jerseys and white pants, while the Bills dress in all  white uniforms, white helmets, Nike white jerseys and pants.

 

NO injuries to all the Colts and Bills players that are making the cut throughout the preseason to the top 53-man regular season roster, should be an entertaining first preseason game tonight, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!   :coltslogo:   :1colts:  :colts:  :coltslogo:

Parris Campbell the rookie wide receiver?  Looks like  he will be sidelined tonight, at least for this Bills game. Parris hasn't practiced since Saturday in Colts training camp, probably his hamstring injury is more severe, ansd taking longer to heal. But we will definitely see him in the sidelines and he went with the Colts to Buffalo.

 

Colts and the NFL teams usually don't prepare a pregame injury report during the preseason games.

What a weird injury report. They don’t have Doyle listed either. I guess we will see.

-2 SB's (2 Conference Titles)

-have won a SB in Feb 2007 (1 World Title)

 

Season 36 in Indy begins here tonight, glad football is back but it is just pre-season. No injuries is the main thing.

I'm sure the playbooks are vanilla as always.... But Buff looks much more crisp on both sides to me so far, with the exception of their OL.  Which is still hot garbage.

1st down dump underneath. Defense collapses quick. Walker on the tackle gain of 4. 

 

2nd down allen in gun. Lot of guys slipping on the turf on defense. Allen forced to roll right and throw it away

 

3rd down and 6. Allen in gun again. Single safety high. Man to man defense. 4 man rush,clean pocket. Misthrown by allen. 4th down punt rogers returning. Clean return with a lot of space, decent return.

    • Making it work through athleticism is an incorrect statement and does a huge disservice to Smith.  Smith is making it work at tackle by working hard and becoming a tackle.  I'm not sure what makes a "true tackle" but to me a guy that plays tackle and plays it very well is as much of a true tackle as anyone else. As far as AC (or AT if you prefer  ) aging... yup, every player on the team is aging so that is not a shock.  But he is still just 30 and tackles often play into their mid to late 30s so that is not much of a concern.  Not to say they won't draft a tackle in the next couple of drafts, but I doubt they will try to find a starting tackle in the next couple of drafts.
    • I didn't watch him much in college, I typically watch Big 10 football but I have watched him closely in the NFL and if the "experts" think he would make a better guard then yes I disagree with them.  While he would be a good guard in a zone blocking scheme like the Colts use, his lack of lower body strength and quick hand punch off the snap would hamper him going against NFL DTs.  Additionally, Smith does better when he has a bit of space to work with before engaging and that would not happen often at RG. Again what "most" people on this board or in general think has no relevance on anything.  It's not unheard of for a tackle to move spots but it is uncommon, it's happening a bit more in the past few years as the skillsets for RT and LT are becoming closer because it's not just the LT that is dealing with the speed rushers, but it's still not preferred among oline coaches and teams.  that is why guys like Haeg are considered valuable assets to a team, he's not a great lineman but he is good and he can switch sides seamlessly and that is rare.
    • Or maybe it's because he didnt claim Brissett "panicked" or act like he knows how good his vision is, and he isnt commenting on his read progressions.....you know things he couldnt possibly know anything about and dont show up on the film anyways.    
    • That was my thoughts.  If he was looking to Pascal first (and I'm sure he was), they had high / low bracket coverage, with low guy moving to Pascal but ready to reverse and cover Mack in the flat if he checks down. Big Q has his guy locked up right in the throwing lane to T.Y. but in position to bat down a pass. JB7 pulls it back here. He looks right (that extra 1/2 second) and both receivers are locked up (and actually one falling down in the end zone).   https://imgur.com/AYob5ov   Then decides to escape.     I think he waited a 1/2 second too long to leave.  He would have caused major issues to the defender covering the under receiver had JB7 escaped first and looked at the his options down field second.  Ryan Kelly just couldn't keep Chris Jones engaged long enough and thus he was on JB7 quickly forcing the throwaway once JB7 escaped the tackle box.   https://imgur.com/eXTWsJG   Maybe Glow is also inhibiting JB7's escape route too.   https://imgur.com/5Zk7Ttw     That was my feeling. I'd rather try again on 3rd down, or end up with 3 points (the end result), rather than turn over the ball and momentum by forcing it to Pascal there and getting a pick.  I'm not debating other times or other items he has to improve (but I'd like to see them on video before I join the criticism), just saw this one differently is all.   I think Reich has to devise and disguise the plays downfield better. And the young WR guys have to learn the plays and improve running the route tree.
    • Draft   23: R1P23 DL JAVON KINLAW SOUTH CAROLINA   35: R2P3 QB JORDAN LOVE UTAH STATE   55: R2P23 OT CALVIN THROCKMORTON OREGON   87: R3P23 LB TROY DYE OREGON   129: R4P23 S J.R. REED GEORGIA   166: R5P22 G NICK HARRIS WASHINGTON   201: R6P23 CB ESSANG BASSEY WAKE FOREST   203: R6P25 WR MICHAEL PITTMAN JR. USC   236: R7P23 CB KINDLE VILDOR GEORGIA SOUTHERN   As far as FA is concerned with our own players -TE: I'm not signing both Ebron and Doyle to big contracts. I'd pick one. Even with Ebron's drops, he still has more yards and TDs with the same amount of targets as Doyle. I'd probably resign Ebron and MAC, and let Doyle go unless he's will to sign a very friendly contract.   -WR: We'll have a decision to make with Funch depending on how well he does when he comes back. Both Pascal and Rogers are FAs, and I'd definitely try to upgrade at least one. Position wise, I think Rogers is more flexible, so I'd likely keep him if any. Really hoping Fountain comes back strong. Love what we were seeing from him.   -DE: Sheard? I just don't know. We need an upgrade at DE. Stinks that Turay is losing time due to injury. Regardless, I think I'd resign Sheard if it's a team friendly deal.
