Dang it NFL Network Colts have fans also .

Recommended Posts

Living in NY Metro area is can be hard to see Colts games . I actually started to keep track of this last 2-3 years because I started to notice it . And yup they did what they always seem to do . They are replaying the Colts-Bills game at 2 O'clock IN THE MORNING . But Cowboys or Giants or Steelers replays always seem to get prime time . AGAIN Colts have fans too.....Just like the Cowboys,Giants and Steelers …..Apologize for the rant !!!!!

NFL Gamepass is worth the $99/yr. You can view preseason games live and reg/postseason games on delay. No commercials either!

Students (college) pass is good as well.  No pre-season, but you get all regular season games live - out of market.  No replay, but only $99.  Just have to know name and college the student attends and you pay up - hopefully with their permission beforehand, lol.

Giants, Cowboys, and Steelers get prime time...surely you're not really questioning the validity of this...

 

Until further notice, it isn't yet hate speech for a corporation to honor it's commitment to its stakeholders by trying to maximize its profit opportunity.

I kind of like it that the sports networks don't know we exist, and most can't name two Colts after Luck.

 

BTW, you can get a 7 day free trial of NFL Game Pass and watch tonight.  (If you have Direct TV, the game is on live on channel 212-1).

That is a good thing . Being a bit of an unknown does have advantages .

Not speaking for the OP but I don’t think the validity of it is being questioned more than making the point that it can be frustrating at times. Obviously they are going to show the teams that will likely get more ratings during prime time; this doesn’t mean that it doesn’t get under your skin from time to time as a Colts fan living outside of the area.

Nothing ever good comes from that thing.  Earlier this year I used mine to go into the future so I could watch the Colts OTAs and I accidentally bumped into Andrew’s calf.  

 

He was doing great until then...

 Because you are able to catch everything the first time. 
That explains a lot.

I'm in NC also and was upset when couldn't see it. I think it was only shown around NY as their game was blacked out to them per something on NFL channel at game time.

    • 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?
