Pacers are struggling with attendance because they choose to wallow in mediocrity, it would be foolish for the Colts to ignore that. 

We couldn’t even sell out the RCA Dome before Manning…tv blackouts. It can happen again if we don’t address the issue. Either go find a franchise qb or go Uber cheap with a game manager/young guy and load up on defense and running the ball. We don’t have to have Star Wars numbers qb play..we get behind winners…blue collar or epic exciting offense.

I’m not a huge fan of Jimmy G. He is exactly Carson 2.0. Constantly hurt and never finish. Remember the SB and his overthrows and misses when he had to make a play to stop KC comeback. I just don’t see it. I also don’t want any qb that’s dated pornstars…just don’t think that’s a “Indy” leader.

31 years for last Bengals playoff win. 19 for the Raiders. I'm curious to see if any lingering effects for Burrow injury...and  curious what Crosby and rest of DLine can do to Bengals Oline.

Love the overall lineup we have this weekend. Each game has me interested. Apparently going to be 0 degrees for Bills/Patriots game. The numbers historically says cold doesn't impact scoring....but I don't see how it can't. If the Bills get up early that one is done. Only way I see Pats winning is 45 carries for Harris/Stevenson.

Yeah those temps and a rookie QB and I see Bellichick running, running, and running some more. It makes sense for Pats to try to shorten game and minimize possessions. However, like you alluded to, if Bills get up early he might be forced to throw more than he wants to.

I think this game sets up well for the Bengals today...I read a stat somewhere that Carr does not do well in cold weather. That and the short week for them after the dramatic Sunday night game, should give the Bengals a big edge in that game.

31 years...That was Ickey Woods and the Ickey Shuffle!

Here in Indy we get a little more regional push out of Cincy so I know a few fans. Would like for them to get over the hump. I also have always liked the Raiders for whatever reason and Carr has been brow beaten his entire career. Would love to see him get a w.

Just read an article that Pats seemed inclined to double Diggs all night leading more opportunities for Knox, Beasley, Davis,etc.....for those who do DFS. Good luck!

Star Wars gave me an idea...Colts could get this guy to play QB. He is not overly mobile and past his prime but he could use the force to complete long passes and we know what he is capable of if the receivers disappoint him.

I actually know a few Raider fans. I do sort of want payback for one of them....he was rooting against the Colts against the Saints in that Superbowl at my house.

I really am just rooting for good games this weekend. Close and competitive.

Why are they playing a game on Monday?. Should be 3 today and 3 on Sunday

As a fan, I am thrilled to have a 3rd day/night of football.  I'm never, ever going to complain about a schedule that gives me more days of games.

I think I read an article about that a few years back. I believe 91 was his last year in the league, which is kind of interesting. Maybe the Bengals should give him a ceremonial role in today's pregame.
