Colts vs Steelers

Recommended Posts

Frankly, I can't wait to talk about this. Since Reich is already game planning, we can talk about it too. 

 

I know many of you are eager to turn the tide against the Pats. I understand. But my ghosts go way back. I want the Colts to get a W at Heinz Field more than any other place, against any other team. Jimmy struggled against them. So did Peyton. So did Luck. 

 

Pittsburgh Steelers lead series 24-6-0

 

Need I say more? Ok, I will. The Colts played them 25 times between 1950 and 2008. In those games, we scored more the 24 points.......2 times. 

 

How many times have we won in Pittsburgh in 69 years?.........................Twice. 

 

With all the mojo I can muster, Go Colts!!!!

Since Big Ben is not playing and it is Mason Rudolph or Devlin Hodges, we definitely have a chance. They will try to run it up our throat, that is their ammo with those 2nd and 3rd string QBs.

 

Line up and play, don't pay attention to the terrible towels or the showboating Steelers' D does after making a play or sometimes even after-the-whistle hits occasionally. Hold on to the ball and play a solid game, there is a good chance we come out with a win if we take care of the ball.

Historically we’re worse against them than the Patriots.  
 

At least they have a Monday night game (although it is against a minor league team), so they’ll have one less day to prepare.

I Know there defense is pretty good. Not sure where they rank. They have been in almost every game. They use their RB as pass catchers more then rushing I believe.

Different year. Different teams. Never count this Colts team out. 

Should be a very close game

Get off to a better start.  Steelers are very similar to the Broncos. Strong defense with a below average-average offense.

Steelers defense is not as good as the broncos. They are ranked around 17th and 18th in run and pass.

They all seem to be.  The Colts will probably manage to make the Dolphins game a nail biter as well.  Colts need to maintain a standard of play instead of always playing to the competition level.

Somebody said last year that we were good...we just needed to learn how to win. That’s what we are doing this year.

I think we lose this game. This game against Denver shows they are not matchup proof on offense and they can be haulted. The Steelers also have a good defense and that crowd is always into it. 

 

Hope I’m wrong but unless we get back to dominating in the trenches and running the ball, I think we’ll have a tough time pulling this one out.

Saw that the Colts are first team since the merger to play seven straight one score games to open the season.

Yea it is going  to be hard to consistently  win if every game is close.

Last time the Colts were 5-2 they went into Pittsburgh the following week and proceeded to get lit up for 51. So lets hope we don't get a repeat of THAT.

My disdain for the Steelers burns with the white hot passion of a thousand suns. 1995 will never be forgotten. I want a win very badly.

If I didn't show that passion in my OP, that is exactly how I feel inside.

Oh I could tell. I’m sure Nadine is with us on this one too.

I can see the Steelers using the same blueprint today that the Broncos used.  Take away TY and bottle up the run.  They have a good D too so it could work.  Maybe we will have a couple of reinforcements after the deadline.

They will have one sooner or later that isn’t one score one way or another.  Honestly the Raiders game shouldn’t have been if it wasn’t for the late Ebron TD when the Raiders D went to sleep.  

 

With that said this life for more teams than not in the NFL that don’t have elite QBs.  They play close games where one play here or there makes the difference between victory and defeat.  That’s the secret to the NFL’s paradoy.

Is it me or does the Steeler's O-line always seem massive and intimidating when we play them on the road? (remember the old-timer uniforms they were wearing that one time, the stripes I think)...they moved mountains it seemed. also their linebackers always seem to kill us and they picked another gem in this year's draft (devin bush jr.).  Hoping that Rothlisberger's field absence will make a difference.  Will be nervous about this one until kick-off.

We're historically terrible against them.

This is one of those times I think NFL voodoo wins out again. We always seem to forget how to play against them. Especially in Pitt.

Wonder if we could keep the 49er or Patriots  matchup close

As in hypothetically? Because we don't play them this year

Them and the Chargers.  In some ways I hate them more than the Pats.  At least with Manning the Colts won their fair share with New England.  The Chargers and Steelers not so much.

Yep, I'm with you on those thoughts.

 

Like you said we always had a shot with PM against NE, but jeez does Pitt always seem to beat us for whatever reason. Regardless of records or who's better that season. I feel like they can march out a 6th string QB and he'll have a career day vs Indy.

 

Hoping I'm wrong of course, but they have some legit voodoo against us.

Look at it this way.  We have a reason to watch tonight's game between the Steelers and the Dolphins.   

Pit will be coming off of a short week when we play them (I don't think that will play a factor).  

Unfortunately they will be coming off of a scrimmage-type game against the Dolphins which could help them gain confidence.   Best case is for them to get beat tonight.   

 

The Colts play every game close, so I think it will be a game which could go either way.
