Manning Memories: Part II

Following Peyton Manning’s farewell to the NFL press conference, Bullseye reviews Manning’s top 10 moment in Indianapolis. Part II of that series counts down numbers 6-4.


6) 4th-and-2 game vs. New England Patriots

In November of 2009, the Colts and Patriots squared off once again at Lucas Oil Stadium. It was in this game that Patriots head coach Bill Belichick showed perhaps the most reverence for Peyton Manning, opting to go for it on 4th-and-2 late in the game with a small lead, as opposed to punting and giving Manning and the Colts a game-winning drive opportunity.

Brady’s pass to Kevin Faulk was caught right at the first down marker, but officials ultimately ruled Faulk short, leaving Manning with a short field for the eventual game-winning touchdown in the final minute to receiver Reggie Wayne.

5) First playoff victory

Peyton’s first playoff victory came in the 2003 wild-card matchup with…guess who, the Denver Broncos.

Manning was brilliant in the 41-10 victory over Denver, recording 377 yards and five TDs against the Broncos defense, which earned Manning his first ever perfect passer rating of 158.3.

4) Monday Night Miracle vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Whenever Colts fans think of Peyton Manning’s numerous comebacks as an Indianapolis Colt, one of the first that comes to mind is the Monday Night Miracle in Tampa Bay on head coach Tony Dungy’s birthday.

Manning Memories: Part I

In Indianapolis, the name Peyton Manning means different things. To some, it’s a childhood hero, a boyhood idol, who kids from 1998-2012 emulated in their backyards, tossing touchdowns to a younger brother who usually played the part of Marvin Harrison, in the back corner of the end zone. To others, Peyton Manning is the gracious face whose hospital has helped them and their children in one way or another. But to everyone in the state, he was an icon; a man who transcended football, and became a Hoosier tried and true.

Now, as the quarterback rides off into retirement following his Super Bowl 50 victory with the Denver Broncos, Bullseye wanted to take the opportunity to look back at Manning’s top 10 moments in Indianapolis, in part to say “thank you” on behalf of the city, and to relive some of our cities greatest sports moments.

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS(3)10) Manning’s Return to Indianapolis

Following a teary-eyed release from the Colts in 2012, Peyton Manning went on to become the quarterback of the Denver Broncos. In 2013, the Broncos were scheduled to face the Colts in Indianapolis, marking Peyton Manning’s first ever matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. This, without a doubt, became a sentimental moment for Colts fans, and an opportunity for the organization and the fans the opportunity to give him a standing ovation following a tribute video.

9) Hosting ‘SNL’ after Super Bowl XLI

Though commercials have always been a part of Manning’s trademark, the quarterback was granted the opportunity to host NBC’s Saturday Night Live in 2007 following the Colts’ Super Bowl XLI victory. Manning’s humor shined in his hosting duties, showing fans a side of the quarterback not normally seen outside of scripted commercials. You can view a sample of the episode by clicking here, or watch the episode in its entirety on NBC’s website.

8) First victory over Brady and Belichick.

Without a doubt, the biggest of Manning’s rivalries over his 18-year career was not only against the New England Patriots, but against head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady collectively. So when Manning was able to notch his first victory against the two in November of 2005, it was a big moment for Indianapolis Colts fans.

Manning threw for 321 yards, three touchdowns and only one interception in the 40-21 Monday Night Football routing of the Patriots. It was after that victory that the Colts seemed to turn the tide against the Patriots, going on to defeat them the following year in the AFC Championship Game to move on to Super Bowl XLI.

7) 2009 AFC Championship vs. New York Jets

Following a season that saw frustration as the Colts rested their starters as opposed to going for a 16-0 record, Manning led the Colts once again to an AFC Championship, defeating the New York Jets in 2009 to wind up facing the eventual-Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl XLIV.

Just like the 2006 AFC Championship game, the Colts found themselves trailing and struggling to move the football. Manning was able to record two second-half touchdown passes to lift the Colts to a 30-17 victory, clinching Indianapolis’ second Super Bowl appearance in four seasons.

2016’s Top NFL Free Agents

The free agency negotiations period for the NFL offseason begins on March 7, with unrestricted free agents free to sign with any team on March 9 at 4 p.m. ET. And with a raise in the salary cap, teams are looking to spend. Here are some of the top picks from 2016’s free agency class.


Eric Berry, S, Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs starting safety returned from his cancer scare playing an elite level, something that many teams in the league will be looking for in their secondary. Berry finished his 2015-16 campaign with 61 tackles, two interceptions and 10 pass deflections.

Doug Martin, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The 5th-year running back will be coming off of his best year as a starter in terms of yards per-carry. Martin averaged 4.9 YPC, gaining 1,402 yards and reaching the end zone six times.

For a team in dire need of a feature back, Martin showed his worth in 2015 in Tampa Bay, finishing second in the league in rushing.

Matt Forte, RB, Chicago Bears

While not the back he used to be, Forte showed no signs of slowing down due to age in the 2015-16 season. Forte, despite missing three games in weeks 9-11 and being limited in the second half of the season, finished with 898 yards, four touchdowns and averaged 4.1 YPC.

Although not the backfield threat he once was, Forte could offer a value upgrade at a key position to a lot of teams looking for rushing help.

Russell Okung, OL, Seattle Seahawks

Okung, though not great, has been a solid starter at tackle for the Seattle Seahawks since being drafted in 2010. And in a league where protecting your quarterback has become the key component to winning, and a market low on talented line help, Okung would be a great pickup for anyone looking to upgrade their offensive protection.

The road to Super Bowl LI in Houston begins in free agency. The road to the 2017 Players Tailgate in Houston, begins today. Look back at what you missed at the 2016 Players Tailgate in San Francisco, and see just a glimmer of the VIP experience coming to Houston next February!

Colts vs. Steelers

Two years in a row, the Indianapolis Colts will have to play the Pittsburgh Steelers at home. That hurts. Most predictions for the Colts put them at 12-4. One of those losses gets chalked up to the Steelers.

Ben Roethlisberger is a pretty good quarterback. He doesn’t often let anyone forget that. Take for instance, the last time the Colts played the Steelers. Steelers outscored the Colts 51-34. That game showed just how dependent the Colts are on cornerback Vontae Davis. And it makes the whole of the Colts defense look pretty precarious.

For a traditionally defense-oriented team, the Steelers have been inadequate as of late. They’ve tried to compensate for this by choosing defensive players in the draft. In the first round, Steelers chose linebacker Bud Dupree. He’s a linebacker with speed and pass-rush capabilities. The Steelers two cover corners, Senquez Golson and Doran Grant, could also be good this season. These new guys have potential, if they could stay uninjured.

The Colts have almost as much trouble defending against the Steelers as they do the Patriots.  If the Colts lose another good player on defense or don’t play up to potential, no matter how high they score, it won’t be enough.

The Colts face the Steelers in week 13 of their NFL season. The game should be a cold one. It’s in Heinz Field Pittsburgh PA, December 6th. Sunday Night Football, baby.

Kickoff is slated to start at 8:30 p.m. That game will be broadcast on NBC. If you want to go watch that game, you can still purchase Colts vs Steelers tickets.


Count Up to Super Bowl 50: A Look Back at Super Bowl XII

Finally, a game worth talking about! Super Bowl XII was played between the Dallas Cowboys and the Denver Broncos. The Cowboys took home the lead with a final score of 27-10. This game was played on January 15, 1978 with an attendance of 75, 583 people. It was played in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Louisiana Super Dome.

The Cowboys had quite the game and their defense conquered most of Super Bowl XII. The Cowboys had such a good defense going on that they forced eight turnovers and were “kind” enough to only let 8 pass completions happen. Butch Johnson could be considered the star of Super Bowl XII, when he dove into the end zone, making a catch that resulted in a 45 yard touchdown reception. Two other stars of the game included Randy White defensive tackle and defensive end Harvey Martin. This was the first and only time in Super Bowl history that two players won the MVP honors.

The cost of a 30 second commercial really went up in 1978 to a total cost of $162,000. Pat Summerall was yet again an announcer for the Super Bowl, along with Tom Brookshier. The game aired on the CBS network and the halftime show included entertainment like Pete Fountain and Al Hirt.

Colts 2015 Schedule

The Indianapolis Colts were only one game away from the Super Bowl last season, and expectations are running high for this year. The anticipated games come a bit later in the season this year. The Colts play previous dynasty leader, Peyton Manning and the Broncos in week 9. The Colts go up against the Patriots in week six in what will be a rematch of last year’s playoff ending run. Andrew Luck will continue to lead a high-scoring offense which is sure to make each game fun to watch.

Colts 2015 Schedule


A great way to make the Colts game even better is attending the Colts VIP Tailgate! Before the game, enjoy an indoor/outdoor tailgate with a five star menu and an open top-shelf bar. Get signatures from Colts cheerleaders, watch pre-game HDTV coverage, and more. Tickets are available for individuals or for corporations. And don’t forget your Indianapolis Colts tickets either!


7th Best NFL Player: Andrew Luck

On July 8th 2015, Andrew Luck was voted the 7th best player in the NFL directly behind Calvin Johnson the receiver for the Lions. The fact that makes this statistic so impressive is that Andrew Luck has just finished his third season as a professional quarterback, however it is well deserved. He has a slew of stats that backed his rank. He had a 61.7% pass completion percentage, amassed a franchise record-breaking 4,761 passsing yards, 40 touchdown passes, and 16 interceptions which resulted in a passer rating of 96.5. On top of that, he also had 273 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns.

Andrew luck has become a huge threat to every defenses secondary. He is very poised in the pocket. He has the size and speed to tuck the ball, run effectively if he gets flushed out. Not only is he an incredible athlete, but he is also an incredible leader on and off the field for his team. He will definitely continue to tear defenses apart, and with the new offensive weapons that the colts have acquired he has a pretty good shot at earning his first MVP award in 2015.

Watch Luck and the rest of the Indianapolis Colts this season by joining us for the Colts VIP tailgate! And don’t forget to get your Colts tickets.



New Tailgating Traditions

Hot Dogs


Football is all about tradition. There’s a lucky pair of socks that have to be worn. There’s a secret handshake which must take place. There’s a song which must be sung. Traditions extend to the pre-game celebrations. Football tailgates may come in a whole range of colors and styles, but here are some ideas for new good habits to pick up no matter which team you’re rooting for.


1. Give your neighbors a gift.

There’s a good chance neighboring cars will be adjacent for most of the day. So, talk to your neighbors, maybe offer them a brew. Compliment their setup. Make friends, get the same spot every game, or at least go for it, to get to know the people. Maybe, stop by their tailgate when you’re heading into the stadium. It’ll give you a chance to say hi.

Clam Chowder Bowl

2. Adopt Food.

At each home game, try to match the visiting team’s local favorites. Friends try to bring food reminiscent of the away team’s style. So New England clam chowder might be served if the Patriots are in town. Or Kansas city BBQ might be the main course if the Chiefs are playing. Or maybe serve fajitas for a San Diego, or buffalo wings against the Bills.

Decorated Cooler for Tailgate

3. Decorate Everything.

Bleed the color of the team. Don’t just put a temporary tattoo on your cheek. Deck out everything in the team’s colors including the tailgate space. Add touches to your table, your cups, your games, your cooler, and even your car.


4. Make a Playlist.

Create a massive list of songs to keep the music going through the whole tailgate. Put songs up to a vote with friends and family. Discover songs, with a special meaning or inside jokes, to put a smile on everyone’s face. And also avoid ballads.


5. Make a New Tradition.

Embrace what the city is known for, like looking very scary Oakland fans, or inventing new ways to keep warm Green Bay. But try and figure out something just you and your friends and family do for a tailgate. Perhaps it will be a 6 a.m. wake up call to scream, “go team.” Or maybe it will be standing on one foot if you say the name of the other team. But no matter what you’re traditions are, make sure to have a great time!


Or if you’re a Colts fan, join us for the great Colts VIP tailgate this season. And don’t forget your NFL tickets either!
