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:

Just a question, is LucasOilStadium a Colts.com entity or something? He (or it?) refers to himself in the first person, but I don't ever see any other posts from it/him other than making gameday threads.

    • Definitely, but the top of the top FAs, teams will be wanting to secure their services.     Should be fun, no doubt. Like you said earlier, glad we have Ballard, because we could be setting in real bad shape like some of those other teams if he wasnt so diligent with the cap.(again, not that we are in great shape, but no one is).   Jags are in decent shape though.   We have higher expectations going into next season though, Im sure a lot of those teams wont even worry about being to competitive.
    • Yep.   this is where cutting or trading JB would have been a good move after signing rivers. We could have rolled that extra 16 mil on top of the 10 million and been able to take that with us in the tightening cap. 
    • Ive never read they knew about it last week, earliest I could find was Saturday (Hope it is true but couldnt find it anywhere) and no report the contacted anyone to put in protocol that I have seen (Again sure hope I am wrong, hoping for M King).
    • Given the sheer number of players and teams this will affect, you’re not going to see the mega contracts like you did the last two or three years. It’s going to force players to either get out or sign lower priced deals. Period.    espn had an article earlier this week, I’ll see if I can find it, basically when it comes to options, pretty much any team over the cap more than 15-20 million, which is roughly 6-7 teams, will have very few options. The worst two, Saints and Eagles have basically two options realistically, cut players or convert those salaries to cash, when equates to roughly 100 million out of the pockets of the owners. I think the latter option is going to be hard to swallow. That’s a lot of money even for billionaire team owners to fork over all at once.    there’s likely to be more vets cut, good Vets than in years past. But then some dead money will roll over to future years. Will be interesting indeed
    • Small change to Kelly's restructure, it would save $6.75m next year, not $9m.   As the 9m would be spread over final 4 yrs of deal at $2.25/yr. Funny how non liquid, billionaires are isn't it.
