When the state moves to stage 5 on the 26th it was stated indoor and outdoor venues can be opened at full capacity. NFL will probably say no to that, but realistically do you think we will see around 20,000 fans per game after the second home game?

We shall see, Marion county has lagged behind the state in opening up (makes sense they have the most people), and the city and county health board have to make a decision with the Colts.

 

FWIW the motor speedway which is outdoors and much bigger with more spaces to spread out is aloud 10,000 fans for races on the 2nd and 3rd.

On 1070 the Fan today, they were discussing this and media people who were at the game last week said that the stadium could accommodate 15-20 thousand and still maintain social distancing. Probably too late to extend occupancy for this week... But for Cincinnati good possibility, especially since INDY easing constraints.

We will see.

It's so odd to see the US in general easing on the corona restrictions when it is worse than it is here, and we are about to tighten restrictions even more here in the UK for the next 6 months.

 

Not saying it is right or wrong.... just odd that the approach is so vastly different.

Id imagine they will let in the same amount as last time, maybe a little bit more. I don't think anyone wants to take a chance and be known as the stadium that blew up COVID-19 again and sets off a huge 2nd wave. lol

The Speedway went from an announced 50% capacity limit in June to 25% in July.  That was not because of a health mandate I don't believe but because that is all the responses they could get in their survey.  Lots of reasons for that I am sure but one of them is people not wanting to take the risk yet.

 

I have to imagine the same holds true for Colts games.  They can say they will be open at full capacity but if they get 20K in the building, I would be shocked.  I am a season ticket holder and going to an indoor place with 15-20K people screaming (filling the air with droplets) is not too appealing.

Not much of anything makes sense about America's covid response.  Feels like  you're living in the twilight zone.

Try the Portland area in Oregon. We are still at stage 1, and our cases are very low.

I got an email from one of the services I've bought through . They said Jets Tix from 43 bucks.  I said no way.

 

Now I know it's the friggin Jets but we bought 4 tix the 5th row of 635 for 210 fees included.

 

Couldn't believe it.  Thought prices would be sky high. 


So my family are going this weekend, some of you guys might want to look into it.

    • Correct. And we need to win that game because if we lose, it is highly unlikely we win the last 5, but I think it is likely they win at least 3 since they play Hou. Jax and a floundering Det.  And they may even be favored against Cle.  That leaves GB for them to upset to sweep into the playoffs and could make it very tough for us to get in at all with our tie breaker status.  This is the more important than any further game this season.  Win and our path to the playoffs is so much more wide open.  But we will still likely need to win at least 3 games to get in unless TN craters somehow.  Those tiebreakers are really going to challenge us in wildcard scenarios.    I could see Hou winning one against us, they usually do and they are on a major upswing.  Their offense is no joke and they do not depend at all on the run so our run defense is less effective obviously.  Pitt and the Raiders are also no joke and both games are away.  This is a critical one if we hope to win the division. If we lose, finishing 9-7 is realistically still in play and I don't see TN losing 3 out of 5.  In fact, I don't see them losing more than 2 of 5.  If we win they'll likely have to win 4 of 5 or sweep to catch us for the division.  I called the Raiders game as being key to make the playoffs and go 10-6 before the season started. With a loss, the desperate WC tie breaker situation, that is especially true.  It's possible for a 10-6 team to miss the playoffs even with the extra team.  Cleveland will almost surely get 10 wins with their easy finish.  Baltimore is also likely.  (Their divisional matchups are really favorable this time around).  Then again maybe we'll sweep the season and get the #1 seed.  Pitt still has to play 5 current playoff teams in their final 6 and KC has to play 3.     Just speculation as always, but that is the fun of a football message board.  Go Colts!
    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
    • Nothing against you and I like you as a poster but counting Ballard's 2017 season is a stretch. I realize he was the GM that year (1st year) but he didn't have the Coach he wanted and Luck was out for the year. We went 4-12 that year so his record is a bit skewed because of that. Others have posted the same thing about Ballard's record so you are not the only one and I just don't see how anyone can count that season legitimately. I pretty much go by 2018-this year when he hired Frank and his record would be 25-19 counting the playoffs. Is he the best GM in the league, probably not but he is good. He is responsible for drafting Nelson, Leonard, Mack, signing Houston, signing Rivers and trading for Buckner = great work there. Luck just retiring on the team and McDaniels dissing him even made his job that much harder.
