    Default Indianapolis at Minnesota Game thread 9/14/08

    (0-1) Coming off a disheartening loss to Chicago in their regular season debut in Lucas Oil Stadium, the Colts hope to get the offense and defense in sync and get a win.

    (0-1) After losing to rival Green Bay last Monday night, the Vikings would like to set things straight in their home opener.

    Time: 1:00 PM ET

    Location: Metrodome, Minneapolis, Minnesota

    Television:
    Super Bowl XLI Champions
    2000 Eastern Conference Champions

    does anyone know if there is a free internet stream to watch the game on? I am having doubts about getting a sattelite signal with these storms coming.

    EDIT: I just remembered the game is on network TV, I totally forgot regular TV even existed.

    I actually DO need internet streaming...the game live doesn't work now. Can anyone help me?
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    I am doing the ESPN gamecast thing...did Keyunta Dawson really have a 2 yard reception or is this thing as messed up as it was last year?

    INT on the first drive, great. Whose fault was it? I can't believe Winfield had an INT, he is one of the worst starting corners in the league.

    this team has looked terrible for 5 straight quarters now. Not sure what, if anything, to expect from them this season.

    When they're on, the Colts are great.

    But it's really hard to root for a team that appears to be so pathetic in the trenches. The Colts seem to have concentrated too much on skill positions and not enough on the big uglies, and it shows.

    agreed. And now we start from the 10, as we did most of last week. No blocking, 8 yard loss, and another passing down close to our goal line. awful. The worst thing of all is that this team is becoming boring to watch...

    The Vikings are reading our offense PERFECTLY. It's almost surreal.

    I am watching the Redskins move the ball consistently against the Saints (even though their kicker sucks and they have no points to show for it).

    This is the twilight zone when the Redskins can move the ball and the Colts can't.

    That stupid Manning toss is going to get Addai mauled. I hate to say this, but can you really play with a QB who can't do play action? That surgery up to this point has altered Manning's ability in the worst way.

    Sorry, but that shot by Robert Mathis should have been a flag. Could have easily ended ADP's season.

    ??? Wasn't a horsecollar, facemask or late hit. Not sure where a flag would come from.

    So he just should have not tried to tackle him? Football is a physical game. I don't get it.

    I think Moses is a little sensitive about plays like that after what happened to Brady.

    Right. I'm sure you wouldn't mind if someone had hit Addai low like that...it was a poor tackle that could have injured Peterson.

    The broadcasters noted it as well, so don't act like I am insane.

    Football is a dirty, imperfect game. What do you expect when you've got 250 pound guys in impeccable shape running full steam at one another for an hour? Not every tackle is going to be neat and tidy. Every year players get hurt pretty badly. Do you ever seen the NFL punish the guys that caused the injury? No, because the NFL realize there is a certain risk involved, too.

    I understand that you're frustrated after the Brady injury and that's understandable, if something similar happened to Manning I might feel the same way. But really it's dumb luck as to whether or not a player has an injury-free career, and the odds are stacked against every player.

    I understand that, but Peterson was already wrapped up on that particular play and was going down.

    And yes, they have punished people who have caused injuries in the past through poor tackling technique.
