Stanton played for the Jets, previously didn't he? That would mean he's familiar with Brian Schottenheimer's offense, right? Wonder if he's passed along any tips to the D?

Stanton was with the Lions. The Jets just picked him up THIS off-season. When Tebow was traded to the Jets....Stanton was traded to the Colts....never actually played with the Jets NM.

Stanton demanded and insisted to be traded because the Jets already acquired Tebow in a trade with the Broncos, who signed Peyton Manning as a free agent. Stanton signed with the Jets after leaving the Lions as a free agent himself. He only was a Jet for a week or two before he came to the Colts.

Sarcastic prediction: 8 blackouts.....nobody wants to see a 38-3 game.....they want a bend but don't win/Cover Nobody defense that pays LBs 7 yards off of the ball and and DBs 12 yards back.

Thank you for the aggressive style of football!!!

Thank you :). I was getting pretty curious. Did he do a good job?

Sorry for the delay... The site wasn't loading because everyone rushed to see what we are talking about here. Sorgi was calling the game locally on WNDY, and did a pretty good job. Now that his clipboard is hung up I think he may have a new job.

Yeah, he did. He has a great voice for broadcasting, he knows his football, and his insight with the organization is a plus too.

Thanks again! I'll have to check next game to see if WNDY is streaming so I can listen to him instead of the TV broadcast. Glad he did well and hope he makes a career of it.

You're very welcome, BrentMc11. Hard for the expectations to continue with just one preseason game. Today's game was the battle of the two of the youngest teams in the NFL in 2012, the Colts and Rams. Maybe Colts management wants the team to be younger as a whole in the next few seasons to come, so the players we have now can gain NFL experience, and help the team become playoff-caliber again.

Andrew Luck's potential could be endless. I did have reservations when Jim Irsay waived Peyton, but this is a new generation of Colts players we are seeing transpire on the field, and my hopes and expectations are gradually getting high and confident, one play, one game at a time. Just my wishful thinking.

38-3 win today. Colts have a full practice week to prepare their next game against the Steelers. GO COLTS!

I forgot to make one point. I will ask a question: Does anyone wonder why Chuck Pagano put such a great emphasis on 'putting a hat' on each other in pads in this camp?

You are so right on the youth. Loved everyone's fun nature today....great times. Until next week :)

this was a great team win. a lot of guys stepped up and made one play or another. i realize it's just a pre-season game and that it was against the Rams, but if guys do that in the regular season, we're going to win a lot of games. we also seemed to get better as the game went along. that's the kind of thing that will go a long way.

of course, i'm impressed, yet not surprised with Andrew. i've seen him do this kind of thing live over a dozen times over the previous two years at Stanford. what i'm glad to see is that he seems to be picking up right where he left off in college. he's intelligent, poised and doesn't get rattled. those qualities -- along with several others -- are going to make him successful in this league. i could go on and on about Andrew, but i'm just going to leave it at what i just heard on the post-game show from Pat McAfee: "the kid is gonna be darn good, man."

doesn't that say it all?!

it was also great to see Stanton and Harnish play so well. a lot of receivers made great plays (Brazille is for real!). i wasn't sure about the defense, but they settled down and held these guys to three points. that's amazing against anyone.

i'm excited to see where the team goes. this is a great start. i hope we can build on it!

A very good game for the Colts overall. Still have concerns about the O-line when it comes to pass protection and also the DBs ability to play the deep ball...That's something we really should work on more.

Folks, today's game thread on the Colt's win and Andrew Luck's debut as a Colt will remain open in case Colts fans would like add additional comments during the 9:00PM game replay on the NFL Network. I also checked NFL Network's program schedule this week but unfortuantely, NFLN is not replaying again the Colts/Rams game after tonight.

    • I like brissett and i really like the short yardage packages with him.  They seem to be working.
    • Rock has had some bad games but he has had some good games too.    Anyone know if Jonathon Gannon is a good defensive backs coach?   Maybe Rock isn't very coachable?   I don't know but I hope he improves.
    • Yes.   Totally different treatment for the Ravens than for other teams (Broncos).   Pittsburgh should be throwing a fit.  They are getting screwed because the NFL is favoring the Ravens just like they did the Titans.  
    • I would say that RYS has shown a little step back but teams have not thrown at Rhodes as much as they have Ya-Sin.  Teams will pick on him making it look worse than it is.  That being said, he is an all-state champion wrestler and not a long tenured football player.  He will take time at the position because he is used to grabbing and tying up (wrestling background) versus anything else.  Ballard drafted the athlete with promise but that is not going to be a two year deal.  He will be another year or two in my eyes, if he ever fully develops.  I still love his potential.
    • Right, I agree but they also got caught the week before with their Strength coach violating protocols.  A + B = C to me.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/ravens/2020/11/25/ravens-discipline-coach-for-conduct-covid-19-cases/115050108/
