2021 Season Opener: Seahawks @ Colts, September 12, 2021, 1pm ET

Hello there, Colts Fans. NFL football is back. :yahoo:

 

 

Your Indianapolis Colts kick off this 17-game season at home playing an inter-conference game against the Seattle Seahawks.

 


This should be fun to watch. Surprising to me, Carson Wentz is expected to start. His OL should give him protection to maximize his strengths, helping him to return to his former MVP-level. Having RB Jonathan Taylor should help Carson quite a bit. The defense will have DeForest Buckner, Darius Leonard, and rookie Qwity Paye who will make his NFL debut. However, CB Xavier Rhodes DE Kemoko Turay are out as is OT Eric Fisher.

 

Excited? Optimistic? Hopeful?  Enjoy it.

 

Good Luck!!! :colts:

Thanks for posting the game day thread. The Colts enter their 38th season here in Indianapolis and I am happy to post this (1984-2021). We have been a franchise that has been very good if not great in reality.

 

In 37 seasons the Colts have accomplished a lot:

1 SB win = 2006

 

2 SB appearances = 2006, 2009

 

5 AFC Title Game appearances = 1995, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2014

 

19 Playoff appearances = 1987, 1995, 1996, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2018, 2020

 

-The most important notables. We have made the playoffs over 50% of the time while in Indy!

 

We have had QB's here in Indy such as Jim Harbaugh (1994-1997), Peyton Manning (1998-2011), Andrew Luck (2012-2018), and Philip Rivers in 2020. Can Carson Wentz be the next great? We will find out shortly. Can Jonathan Taylor be our next Eric Dickerson? Stay tuned folks. All in all, my prediction for tomorrow's game is the Colts win 24-20 over Russ and his team in front of a loud sold out crowd. Go Colts!

Let’s get loud today 12th man!!! Astonished by how many Seahawk fans that are here in town. With that being said, roof is closed and Lucas Oil will be rocking! I’m praying Colt fans bring the juice today, I know I’m walking out of there with no voice. Ground and pound today, the 4 horsemen and Carson will control the clock and bring home the victory! Go Blue!!!!

I'll be watching the Broncos game with my parents since I live in Colorado. Maybe you'll be on TV! I'll just assume the hottest looking girl I see in the crowd is you! haha :thmup:

Off topic a little but this is football. Who is everyone's pick for the SB? I don't feel like making a thread regarding that, if someone does that would be cool. I have GB over Buffalo in the SB. Rodgers gets #2. I have us making the playoffs at 11-6 FWIW. If Wentz pans out we may only be a year away.

I’m biking (bicycle) to a local bar and bringing an iPad with the nflsunday ticket to watch if they’re not carrying the game.  I’ll ride back at half time to watch on the big screen.  
 

@Archer I know you’re in mass but not sure if you’re near holliston where I’ll be watching. Anyone else from MA can come to Casey’s pub if you want

I put money on Indy at 22-1 back in March so I’ll stick/hope with that

If you just put 100 on it that would be 2200 dollars :thmup:. We should've beat Buffalo last year but because of seeding I think the Bills will have it easy (at least in round 1) in the playoffs more than likely. I see them being a 2 seed at worse. I hope we get another shot at them. I am one that sees KC getting upset in the playoffs, It is tough for any QB winning 2 SB's and Mahomes doing that this quickly isn't likely. It took Peyton his whole career to win 2 and QB's like Rodgers and Brees only have 1.

Going to a local sports bar to watch the Colts and get peeks at other games! T-minus an hour and a half!

Me too in Rochester NY.  The place will be packed with Bills fans going crazy.  Western NY is on their SB train.

I was at Binghamton when the Bills last went to the SB. I had just begun to follow football. I chose a non-NY team to root for. Chose the only Purple uniform. :) (The Ravens were not in existence then.)

 

Enjoy the games.

1998 Vikings rule, best team ever not to win a SB, JMO. That team was loaded in every area!

It seemed like reasonable odds.  All depends on wentz

    • As did Luck.  I noticed the similarity in the first two games, despite the O line playing poorly.   Its a sign of a QB that looks for down the field chunk plays because he has the arm to convert them.  Rivers did not throw down the field that much....see the difference?   Also, injuries happen to QBs who extend plays waiting for something down the field to open up.   Luck had TY and Ebron, so it worked for him and the offense.  Wentz has nobody down the field to throw to with any consistency.
    • Hmmm.  So JB never threw downfield.  Rivers did not throw downfield.  And we are criticizing Wentz for not throwing down field.     So, either Frank does not like to throw down field (but he did as a QB), or, all three QBs didn't think there will be anybody open downfield when they are expecting them to be open.  Or nobody was open.   Mack is a backup to JT. Period.  He runs the in-the-middle runs that he always had (remember, back when folks thought he was near-elite?).  He has no other useful talent as a ball carrier.  (he can block as a RB)   Doyle is in the game because no other TE is better.   Granson?  Apparently not good enough, or maybe showing juggles in practice.   Strachan apparently cant run block, play ST, or run a decent array of patterns, possibly not getting sufficient separation.  He is been all about making sure handed and contested catches.  But that is not enough to get on the field in the NFL.  He was a 7th round pick because he is a developmental player.   If Parris is healthy and on the field, then he should be making plays if he is the player we think that he should be.   Can't use Hines every play.  He could be on the field more with JT, but then that would take away from the two TE set or the 3 WR set.
    • That is historically low yardage numbers.       
    • Anyone but the Dodgers, Yankees or Red Sox.    Preferably the Cardinals.
    • Wentz was clearly unable to play yesterday. Playing Wentz eliminated any chance of winning even with a 3-0 turnover margin. You have to be concerned with the mindset that let Wentz play.
