Colts @ Steelers Preseason Game Night Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans! Our Indianapolis Colts are in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to play the Steelers in a nationally televised game for NBC Sports. Colts will try another strong performance on the field to win their first road game of 2012. :steelers: Rookie Andrew Luck faces a bigger challenge as he leads the Colts offense at QB opposite the Steelers 'Big' Ben Roethlisberger.

Colts wrapped up their training camp at Anderson University on Friday as new Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano and his coaching staff reportedly accomplished all of their preparation for their 2012 NFL season. Past three weeks of practice during training camp also built relationships and solidarity between the coaches and players, as they carried their off-season Organized Training Activities (OTA's), and further learned football fundamentals, skills, and their playbooks, as they continue to prepare for the regular season in September.

Indianapolis currently leads the all-time preseason series entering tonight over Pittsburgh 11-9, and both the Colts and Steelers meet in the preseason for the first time since 2000, when both teams traveled and played a preseason game in Mexico City, edging Pittsburgh 24-23. Steelers though, won the recent regular season meeting over our Colts, also on Sunday Night Football, during Week 3 by the score of 23-20, at LOS back on September 25, 2011. Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham broke the tie to kick the game-winning FG for the Steelers.

Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will announce the live national TV game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline reporter Michele Tafoya, for NBC Sunday Night Football, including WTHR NBC 13 in Indianapolis, and worldwide to our military personnel on the Armed Forces Network all on HD. NBC's 'Football Night In America' precedes the network game coverage at 7:30PM Eastern Time.

NFL Network will also replay the Colts @ Steelers game at 3:00AM Tuesday morning, Eastern StandardTime.

Our 'Voice Of The Colts,' Bob Lamey, game analyst Will Wolford, and sideline reporter Kevin Lee are in their sixth NFL season together broadcasting live radio coverage of Colts games on flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WLHK Country 97.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network, with complete game coverage beginning tonight at 5:00PM Eastern Time.

Partly cloudy skies at 76 degrees, feels like 78 degrees, is forecast in Heinz Field for tonight's 8:05PM kickoff, along with 52% humidity, 20% precipitation, and very mild south/southeast winds at 6 miles per hour.

Colts will dress their matching white jerseys and pants as the visiting team, while the host Steelers will wear their black jerseys, and gold pants.

Colts and Steelers starters in the offense and defense may play most of the first half, before the veteran reserve players, rookies, and signed veterans and free agents enter the field to showcase their talents, and set the course the rest of tonight's game, while at the same time are evaluated by by both coaching staffs before rosters are cut to 80 players on August 28.

NO injuries to all the Colts players, as they and the Steelers will also be with the replacement referees. I also wish Andrew Luck another great performance on the field, and keep the Steeler fans from waving their 'Terrible Towels.' Let's GO COLTS!!! :cheer::1colts::coltslogo::coltshorse::colts::coltsfb::coltshelmet::blueshoe::D:cheer:
