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.

Since the Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984, they have been too:

 

-12 Divisional Rounds (Elite 8's)

-5 AFC Title Games (Final 4's)

-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.

    • Supe it's not an angle whatsoever, it's purely the truth.   I am, of course not talking about you, or what you do on this board in terms of evaluating players. I always enjoy hearing your take on players.   I am obviously talking about the people spewing bile on here after the loss to the Raiders, and every other loss for that matter. And a lot of that includes tripe about Jacoby Brissett that just goes way over the top.   We can disagree on Brissett, it's not really a big deal. And I apologize for quoting you in the other thread and giving you the impression I am including you in this. I'm really not. I quoted you because I would rather debate the topic with someone like yourself than get sucked into a flame war with some troll, which has happened to me a time or two. That's all. Me and you can have a somewhat interesting discussion. I always enjoy it.     
    • Nice thread...    There have been some arguments for a while now about the relative value of pass-coverage vs pass-rush. Teams offensively are turning to faster and faster game plans and this affects the pass-rush a ton. You can practically scheme the pass-rush away if you have good enough QB and receivers that get open quickly. The latest advanced analytics seem to favor positions like CB and WR value-wise over long-held champions like EDGE rushers or OTs. I will also take into account your characterization of the rest of the roster(average players as opposed to straight up trash). At some positions the improvement between pro-bowler and average/JAG is higher than at other positions. Those are just part of the considerations that will inform my choise here:   Offense:   1. QB: not controversial take here - most important position of all... he handles the ball and makes a decision that might affect the game pretty much 100% of the snaps. I want the best passer and decisionmaker to run my offense.    2. WR: yep, give me a beast of an X-receiver. Pass-catchers are incredibly important.   3. LT: Yeah, I know, this goes against some of the things I said above, but time and time again we see what a great LT does to an offensive line. Leremy Tunsil is not even that great and he almost single-handedly turned around the HOU OLine. Same with AC last year - we missed him mightily when he was injured to start the year and then turned the line into a great unit. And again - he's not even at the level we are talking here. He still has not had a pro-bowl or all-pro recognition(maybe he gets one this year, he deserves it). But yeah... give me Bakhtiari, give me Armstead, give me Tyron Smith level player... I think this raises the level of the whole O-Line, especially if it's filled with average players at the other positions(rather than horrible ones)   ------------------------------------ Those will be my selections offensively. I think a QB masks a lot of deficiencies and I think he elevates average players and squeezes everything out of most of them. Just look at what Luck used to do with players like Jack Doyle, Donte Moncrief, Eric Ebron, Inman, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen...    Defense:   4. CB: yep, I want a shut down corner. Like I said earlier, newest research shows pass-coverage and especially on the boundary is paramount. and it affects pass-rush more than pass-rush affects CB play.    5. CB: yep, give me one more... I'm shutting down both sides of the field and hoping this gives additional time to my pass-rush to get there. They will play on island and I will scheme out everything else(i.e. slot receivers and TEs)... if I have to I will double away from them.    6. WILL: I want a sideline to sideline monster to clean up the run game and take on crossing routes in the short-intermediate middle in coverage.     7. EDGE: I still want a player capable of beating his man one-on-one on the line and creating pressure/affecting the pass when my pro-bowl CBs lock down their match ups.    So what do you think? Does it make sense?

    • Don't be ridiculous   Darius Leonard was an All-Pro his rookie year. Okereke will have a hard time matching that.
