Colts announce another sellout

Getty Images

The streak continues.  And it should.

This week’s game at Lucas Oil Stadium featuring the 4-3 Colts against the 4-3 Dolphins has been sold out.

Yes, the 4-3 Colts.  As in twice the wins from last year.  As in one more win than when Peyton Manning was a rookie on a team that featured Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk and eventual Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison.

The team now has a 84-game sellout streak.  Which means that a game during the Peyton Manning era actually didn’t sell out.  Which is a little bizarre.

Also a little (or a lot) bizarre is the fact that both the Colts and Dolphins having winning records after eight weeks of the 2012 season.  The winner becomes a real contender for the postseason.  The loser still has a decent chance, too.

    It has been fun living in Indiana and witnessing the drama in real time. If this actually works, people will be talking about this change from one era to the other for years. People in the state are feeling it big time. The bandwagon is reloading big time.

    The last Colts non sellout home game was during the 2003 season. This is actually the 84th straight sellout.

    Good for Indy, great org that is rebuilding and putting a good team out on the field, Good job guys!

    Indianapolis 500 is only next year and the Pacers haven’t started their season yet, so it’s no surprise this game sold out. There’s not much else to do in this town.

    Luck is good, but against the Miami defense??? No chance, and that’s even without RT17…just say’in.

    Lol at a Colts fan thinking he can talk down to other teams.

    Nice 2-14 season last year, buddy. You guys showed real grit and determination without Peyton Manning. /sarcasm

    Should be a good game.
    One team that fought hard to save their coach’s job last year and the other that threw their coach under the bus and didn’t really make an effort until they had the 1st pick in the draft locked up.

    How come you don’t mention the fact that they still sold out while Curtis Painter was their starting QB 😉

    Ok seriously…think you can post an article without mentioning MegaHead?

    Let the kid live his own legacy. He will be a lot better and win more titles than his predecessor.

    Reggie Bush still thinks “Hard Knocks” didn’t help the Dolphins.

    As a student at Texas A&M, I love seeing Tannehill do good. But with or without Peyton Manning, Colts will always be #1 to me.

    Dolphins 24 – colts 10. Miami always seems to give up chunk yardage and a late touchdown. Miami’s defense has an incredibly low percentage on 3rd downs. We got a lot of great new look on defense after the bye week and though luck is very poised, our pass rush is causing a lot of problems for people. On the other side I think we will have some help blocking behind Jonathan Martin an jake can handle his own. Mathis and freeney are both beat up and with our west coast offense and great route runners in hartline and bess, with bush out of the backfield, I think we can control the colts pretty easily. Miami should win this game, they are supposed to, but it’s any given Sunday , far stranger things have occurred.

    All those games were sold out before the season started.

    I am not a Colts fan. I do however live in Indy and see a lot of this team.

    They are not just a cute story, they are a good team being put together the right way. The talent they have at WR and TE is amazing, Brown and Ballard are emerging as solid RB’s and they play solid tough defense.

    The scary part is, this group is going to go 8-8 or 9-7 and have a million bajillion dollars to spend on free agent OL and DB’s, which just happens to be their main weakness.

    In three years or less this team will be in a Super Bowl. Guarantee it.

    Miami fans must been hanging with Scarface or something ….u think u can beat Colts in Indy??? Yr high!!!

  20. ddogdaddy says: Oct 31, 2012 7:25 AM

    You would think after 84 consecutive times of doing ANYTHING, it would kind of quit being a story.

  21. joetoronto says: Oct 31, 2012 8:23 AM

    The Colts are on their way to not even missing a beat without Peyton Manning.

    That’s amazing, I don’t care what anybody says.

  22. guthyrenks says: Oct 31, 2012 9:55 AM

    Brown and Ballard wont be running anywhere on the Dolphins D. So it will be up to Luck with Wake and Vernon all up in his face all day. So not to worried about the Colts

    @ mdd913

    I’ve always liked te colts as well but they are not a great team. They have made some good moves and have some talent. Their talent has come through for them when needed at times but they are full of flaws that have been exposed. Luck has done a tremendous job of covering up some holes. I do believe they are on the up but nowhere near where they should be. As far as free agency cash Miami is equally loaded. We have some bi names to sign Clemons, long, smith, bess ect. But all of these guys are happy in Miami and are eager to be a part of what Miami is doing. In addition we have a loaded draft. 5 picks in the first 3 rounds. Thanks In part to being to dump Davis onto the colts. He’s physical and talented but has serious attitude problems both on and off the field. He is not commuted and I fear will never reach his potential. Gladly accept 2 picks, one a second rounder. Both teams have bright futures, but I’m sure proud to be a dolphins fan right now, finally
