You should try the Yahoo sports app. You can only watch local broadcast games, but I wonder if you can put in a location manually without allowing the app to access your GPS on your phone. At least I remember contemplating it when I was going through the set up.

Nothing to do with this thread, but I really like the Amazon Firestick.   And YouTube has some really good information.... 

 

Sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt the thread.  Just some random thoughts.

Curious why a tiny patch of SE GA/NE FL gets Colts-Clowns. East, being in Atlanta, that has to be even that much more irritating that it's that close to you. I have the same feeling living in the Memphis area with the game being shown less than 3 hours away in the Nashville area. GRRRRR....!!!!!

I'm in Glasgow. 99% of the time now I only get Tennessee or whatever is on Fox.

That's awesome you're from Scotland! Didn't know they broadcast the Colts from Europe! I'm European but live in the U.S. Half Italian, quarter English, and a quarter Spanish (where I get my last name from). Never actually been to Europe though. Want to go one day! :)

I get the Broncos/Pats game here in Colorado. Unfortunately it's hard to get Colts games here unless they are on primetime, or on FOX against an NFC team. Once in a while, they will be on a different time than the Broncos and I will get them, usually only get around 4 Colts games a year here though (maybe more if they face the AFC West that year).

IMO, the TV presentation is getting pretty generic. Its been happening for a while.  Seems like they are taking a fairly lazy approach to making these assignments, and maybe expect/see more people paying to watch specific games.  

 

What gets played on traditional network coverage is becoming an afterthought.  

 

Yeah, they can do better, and have done better in the past, IMO.

No, no, lol. Not Glasgow, Scotland. Glasgow, Kentucky.

Ah ok. I actually didn't know there was a Glasgow Kentucky. That's interesting. You live somewhat close to Indy, so I'm sure you get to see the games on TV more than me still, and occasionally get to see a game at Lucas Oil. I probably need to get gamepass honestly. Just a weird year this year, so I held off.

Back in the day the Colts were on every weekend here. After Peyton left, the games slowly were replaced with Tennessee. It's rare they are on TV here anymore.

Oh, nice. Yeah, no idea who that is, but there are PLENTY of places here to drink tequila.

I live in Indiana (Southeastern) and don't even get to watch most Colts games without NFL Sunday ticket (which I canceled this yr). Everything I get locally comes out of Cincinnati. :puke:

I was excited when they flexed week 4 to 4:30 thinking surely they will have Colts/Bears on local channels. Nope....Raiders vs Bills! 

Needless to say I've never been happy with local streaming.

Thank goodness for GamePass

 

I paid for GamePass and have yet to watch one full game. What do you like about it and how do you get the most out of it. Can I listen to any out-of -market game in real time?

No, you can't. They very clearly state that you get the full games (all of them, by the way) only after they have completed. The only games you can watch live via Game Pass are the ones you get for free on your local stations, anyway. You can, however, listen to each and every game's radio broadcast (either team's broadcast crew, too, by the way - your choice) live.

We spend the July 4th and Labor Day holidays at a house on Barren River Lake. Love it down there. Nice break from reality. 
 

Exit 53 means our getaway has started.

Thank you. This ^^^ I am aware of. I have yet to watch a replay of a full game. I did watch the All 22 for the first Vikings game.

 

My question was whether I could listen to any game's radio broadcast live. My question was not clear but you answered it. Thanks.

What part? I live about four miles from Beaver Creek boat dock. Also close to the Narrows and a couple others.

    • That's what I was thinking
    • I think we're in good shape either way, it just adjusts our strategy with some extensions, and maybe we can't add another FA.    For a team like the Eagles, it completely changes their approach. If the cap is $175m, they can't keep Wentz without completely gutting the rest of their roster.
    • The trend is for the best offenses to be the teams contending for the Superbowl.  Are you aware of the basic Defense wins championships mantra?  You know Offense scores points?   I assume you are   Interstingly, the last really good D to win Superbowl was PHI and they had to score 44 points to do it v. No. 1 yanked Offense NE. And the Foles led offense carried them through the playoffs.  Before that it was Mannings Broncos.   Also intersesting is the 13-3 NE over LAR SB, featured the 25th and 27th ranked Ds in football.       The way to win in today's NFL is with high powered NFL passing offenses.  The rules are and have been set up that way increasingly over the last 20 years.   It's a lot different than when we were kids.   So like I said, it's usually Offense wins championships, Defense tries to hold teams to FGs.  There are occasionally anomalies but this is bascially accurate in todays' NFL.
    • There’s a good reason why defense everywhere suffered badly.   I can explain it in one word.  And you know the word.  Come on EVERYBODY say it with me!!!!   COVID!!   C-O-V-I-D!!   Defenses were poorer in the NFL and the college level as well.   Much less practice.  Much less contact.  Much less close up coaching.  Far more walk throughs.      When the world returns to normal, defenses will get better.  So will football. 
    • Not surprising at all. Here is how he ranked in other categories:   Intended Air Yards/PA - 26 Completed Air Yards/PA - 28 Completed Air Yards/Completion - 29 YAC/Completion - 2   First...it cannot be ignored that the Colts played (by far) the easiest schedule on offense. The average defense they played would have ranked ~23rd in DVOA. And that average was "deflated" somewhat by playing #1 defense PIT...when they clearly weren't the #1 defense anymore (after losing players to injury). That definitely played a factor.   Second...these numbers are as much Reich as it is anything. Reich uses the mesh concept (like he did with JB last year)...which creates open players in space and allows for YAC.    In fact, River's numbers (in the above categories) were very similar to JB's numbers last season. But Rivers is just a much better QB...and throws with better anticipation and accuracy. Throw in a HR hitter like Taylor and a young talented WR like Pittman...and you (naturally) have much better QB production with these concepts.   With the Colts offensive system, I think they could have immediate success with just about any talented QB they brought in...including a rookie. And if that QB is mobile...it will open up the playbook even more and raise the ceiling.   So I am in the minority here...but Rivers coming back doesn't move the needle for me. It's a lateral and stagnant move. I was all for the signing Rivers last off season...because it was the best of not-so-ideal situation. But if anything, it just proved that this team is ready to take the next step forward...and that means getting the right QB. Now is the time to make that move. So the only way I want Rivers back is if they get aggressive and move up to draft a QB who might need to sit for a part or all of a season.    TBH...I would rather roll the dice on Darnold and accept the risk of a reset year. I think he make a  good transition to this offense. And either he breaks out and suddenly you have a 24 year-old franchise QB...or he doesn't...and you have a reset year with the Colts in a much better position to draft a QB. Bringing back Rivers does nothing for the position long-term...and likely means another pick in the 20s.
