Colts Vs. Browns Preseason Game Day Thread


LucasOilStadium

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!  :) Our Indianapolis Colts will try to win both their first preseason, and first game in 2019 as they host the Cleveland Browns, as both teams lead off the Saturday's live game action in the Week 2, 2019  NFL Preseason Schedule, and the Colts Vs. Browns NFL game will be the first of three live preseason games televised nationally on The NFL Network.

 

Our Colts suffered a 24-16 preseason road loss at Buffalo, while Browns won in Cleveland, defeating the Redskins 30-10 in both teams Week 1 preseason games.

 

Indianapolis and Cleveland are playing their ninth all-time preseason game, with the Colts leading the series 6-2.  Colts defeated the Browns in 27-6 in both teams last preseason meeting played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building) back on August 24, 2013. 

 

Indianapolis and Cleveland have also played 29 games, including 25 regular season games (Colts lead 13-12), and 4 postseason games (2-2). Colts defeated the Browns 31-28 in the last meeting played at LOS back on September 24, 2017.

 

Colts held their last full week of their training camp, and  have been having joint practices with the Cleveland Browns after the Browns arrived to Indiana Tuesday night.  Both teams held joint practices on Wednesday and Thursday at the Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield.

 

Colts Head Coach Frank Reich and his Colts assistant coaches and support staff concluded and  wrapped up the 2019 training camp Friday at Westfield. Many players played great after healing from injuries during the offseason, and competition for wide receiver and cornerback are reportedly intense during training camps. Colts WR Daurice Fountain suffered and was hospitalized and had surgery with  his severe ankle injury on Friday's last day of training camp.

 

Cleveland Browns also feature players that may only play a few offensive series after the start of this afternoon's game, including second-year players QB Baker Mayfield and RB Nick Chubb, and off-season signees WR Odell Beckham, Jr., and RB Kareem Hunt.  Browns had a second half surge during the second half of their 2018 NFL Regular Season, and finished 7-8-1.

 

Third-year Colts QB Jacoby Brissett could start the rest of the preseason games, as news of Andrew Luck's calf and ankle sprain, and uncertainty of Luck available to start in Week 1 of the NFL Regular Season made around the media outlets, after being awarded the 2018 NFL Comeback Player Of The Year.

 

Greg Rakestraw and former University Of Northwestern and NFL coach Rick Venturi are announcing the live TV game commentary, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Larra Overton, simulcast locally in Indianapolis both on WXIN FOX Channel 59 and live online game streaming  in your personal devices on https://fox59.com/ , regionally in Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky on the Colts Preseason Television Network, and nationally on both The NFL Network, and The Armed Forces Broadcast Network.

 

LOS's roof will be closed for this afternoon's 4:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because the local gamecast around the stadium area in Downtown Indianapolis is 84 degrees, feels like 88 degrees, 15% precipitation, 59% humidity, and southwest winds at 8 miles per hour.

 

NO injuries to all the Colts and Browns players, as all of them continue to both apply and audition for rosters sports in September, especially the drafted and undrafted college players,  and the rookie and veteran free agents, make the cut throughout the preseason games and their teams training camps, from the current 90-man rosters, to the final 53-man regular season roster and practice squad.

 

Win your first game in front home fans for the first time in 2019 at LOS, Go Blue, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!! :cheer:  :rock:    :coltslogo: . :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:    :cheer:   :D

Wondering if the new thing in the entire NFL is that head coaches do not seem to putting their starting players on the field as much during pre-season as they did in the past . That being said ……...GO COLTS !!!!!

Anyone else hope/think they might let Kelly play qb for an entire half?  I hope he plays 2nd and 3rd qtr.... The team knows who Walker is, let's see what Kelly does with our number twos....

 

Also, if they are giving Kareem hunt the twenty carries just mentioned, temper the criticism a bit of our run d, at least the backups when they go against him en masse..

lol

I wish we could get some looks with this defense against Mayfield tonight, but it is what it is. Good for confidence, as we are looking pretty solid. Offense is going to be very basic again. Trying to establish that run. Need to open it up a bit on 3rd down, IMO. Everything will be OK. 

 

We'll see more next week.

Browns 1st down from 36... K hunt runs for 4, geathers stopped.

 

2nd and 6.... Hunt for no gain.  Leonard tackle.  Wr 88 held..... Loss of ten.

 

2nd and 16 from 30 yd line....

 

In nickel, Moore in slot.... Incomplete, a. Walker covers about 12 yds downfield...

 

No blitz will be this preseason....Venturi says will only use four man rush.  

 

Turay sack using inside, nine yard sack.... 

 

4th and 25, false star....

 

Punting 4th and 30 from the 15

 

Rogers shows why he should be upgraded from as returner.... Waved it off and we start deeeep in own territory.  Bad decision imo.

Next to impossible to establish a run really when you do it every snap.... Lol.

    • Guessing he rightfully thinks either A) they'll want more money since they are coming off cheap contracts, or B) they need to be improved upon by a wide variety of choice.
    • Let Hilton walk and sign a wr in free agency. Some big names that could be available and I’d be willing to go for one of the big names even if it cost us.
    • That's a pretty bad take given how much he's come on lately (especially given the WR situation), we're winning the AFCS, and have zero idea about Eason.    I doubt Ballard is ready to flash cut given the talent he's assembled for a run.
    • I understand there's a lot of homerism here and seeing things through rose colored glasses and ignoring things that aren't great and making excuses about inheriting Griggs roster & Pagano, and blaming '17 draft class on not having his scouts AND Luck retiring. There's probably similar bias on every teams forums. And that's fine, Fans is short of Fanatics.  And that's what we are.   Here's the thing tho, are we good? .. Yes. We're tied for 1st place(record). So why does our 7-3 record make Ballard the King of GM's of all time like so many say around here? We're 1 of 8 division leaders. Why isn't the Steelers GM,who are 10-0 despite losing superstars Bell & Brown recently mentioned up there with Ballard here? I heard a talking head last season say it will take 3 or 4 years to rebuild. And now over night they are undefeated and a serious super bowl threat.   The Ravens are always known for good rosters. Why is Ballard considered so much better than him?   KC are super bowl champs and are loaded, a 9-1 record, a excellent coach and have the Best QB in football in place for the next decade!!!    The team we're tied with, Titans, dont have a elite or franchise qb, yet they are doing well this year and made the AFCCG last season. Whoever is calling the shots there isn't doing so bad, is he?   The Dolphins tanked last year and overnight are playoff contenders this season with a rookie Franchise QB for next decade. Their GM isn't stinking up the joint, huh?   Buffalo is leading their division  with a good roster I hear and have their QB in place. I'm not crazy about Allen but I wouldn't mind him going forward. They've been decent/good for several years, so I guess their GM is doing ok too?   Mayock inherited a Dumster Fire yet he's turned that team around in a short time and the organization hired a proven SB winning HC.   The Pat's went to like 15 straight AFCCG's so some credit I guess is due to Belichek the GM? Or was it just  from coaching/cheating? Lol   SF was at the bottom not too long ago and built up right away and went to a super bowl.  Not bad by their GM.   Seahawks are a playoff/top team practically every season and have one of the Top Offenses in football.    Cardinals, like 49ers were at the bottom not too long ago. Now they have a good team and a Franchise if not Elite QB for the next decade!!!   Who's calling the shots in New Orleans? Is it Payton? Whoever it is has them as one of the best teams in football every season.    So like I said above we're doing well. But other teams, other GM's are doing well also.     
    • Go thru your own list.   A number of the players you list as “let walk” are already making at or near the minimum.   Letting them walk makes little sense unless they get replaced by high level draft picks because they still have to be replaced.   And the replacements will likely cost what these guys are currently making.   You’re just swapping one inexpensive player for another.    Decisions could get really REALLY complicated IF we decide to pay Leonard and Smith a year before we have to.   And I think that’s highly likely.  Their type of talent gets the VIP treatment when it comes to $$$$.    By the way, thanks so much for the thread.   There are going to be lots of great discussions here over the next 6 months or so.   Appreciate you starting it!
