2014 Schedule ?

11 posts in this topic

Hello colts fans

I don't know if this is the right "forum" to address this topic, but I just wonder, how the next seasons schedule is figured out and planned?

I know it's something with this years standings and results for some part, but are there any ground rules or certain schemes you can follow each year, and then figure out how the next years schedule would look like?

Thanx for helping a Danish Colts fan for learning a bit more about this awesome sport :-) TK

Har nu været herinde et godt stykke tid, men har bare aldrig helt fundet ud af hvordan det med næste sæsons kampprogram ser ud.

Well the vikings conquer the world :-) For those of you who think i'm referring to the Minnesota Vikings, you are wrong, it's of course the true vikings from Denmark :-)

Just one more question about the last two teams in the following years schedule, because i'm still a bit insecure about how they are determined?

just say if i'm wright or wrong here:

If we finish second this year, do we then meet the second seat in the two divisions we are paired with or what?

Each year the Colts play another full division in the AFC, and they will play the team in the other two AFC division that corresponds with where they finished 1-4 the year before.

This year the Colts plays the AFC East, but also play the Chiefs & Browns, who like the Colts finished in 4th place last year

Yep biggest thing about next years schedule that pops out at you is we play the Broncos at LOS, can't wait.

I'd rather not see that game ever played...no good can come of it

and we always play New England...I dont know why..we just do

We have played New England because it fit the formula the NFL has, not because of Manning v Brady, or the NFL wanting to see Colts vs. the Pats.

2012 AFC East & AFC South play each other.

2011 Colts & Patriots Division Champions in 2010

2010 Colts & Patriots Division Champions in 2009

2009 AFC East & AFC South play each other.

2008 Colts & Patriots Division Champions in 2007

2007 Colts & Patriots Division Champions in 2006

2006 AFC East & AFC South play each other.

2005 Colts & Patriots Division Champions in 2004

2004 Colts & Patriots Division Champions in 2003

2003 AFC East & AFC South play each other.

2002 Colts/Patriots did not play

So unless they both win the division or both finish 2nd in the division they will not play during the regular season next year.

There are no hidden conspiracies.

Road games at SF, Seattle, SD, KC, Pitt or Baltimore, plus the South? That's what sticks out to me. That is amongst the ugliest road schedules I think I remember any team having in recent years. And imagine if the NFL puts two of those west coast trips back to back? I suppose the Giants road schedule last year was pretty close, and they won it all. But I'm going back to the now, this year, so I don't have to think about that schedule. That is ugly. I'm having too much fun now to get depressed by that mess.

It is what it is. Every year I think we have a brutal schedule. But the view changes as the season goes on. Don't worry about the schedule, just enjoy the season.

    • Just got back home from the game--a great time.  Cal just way too good.   Walking out the stadium and the first thing I see is a guy wearing a Trent Richardson Colts jumper--Had a quiet chuckle to myself
    • I can see how George fell into a bad situation with the O-Line issues, etc., but I think that George's problem was George.  Andrew's attitude is entirely different.  I think George matured a lot from being in the league but Andrew already has that maturity.  He admits his mistakes, so much so that I think he's very hard on himself.      
    • I will go 4. I think it's slightly Below Average/close to Average. We did play well at times with Hasselbeck last season but having said that when it counted he even lost to the Texans in Indy. Our O.Line should improve with Kelly and having more depth but it's Average at best and has played Below Average to Poor in most of Andrew's career. Our D.Line could be Good if it can stay healthy - Mathis upcoming year is a mystery on what impact he can provide, of course when Davis is healthy he is a Top 10 corner as well but our D has been up and down from week to week history wise in the Andrew era as well. I think Jackson is Good but overall our LBacking core is suspect. One week our Defense plays Good, then the next it plays Bad! Our SPTeams with Pat and Adam are Great so that helps my rating and TY and Moncrief are Good but we still have little to no run game, Gore is Average at this point in his career. I like this question because if it was asked of Russell Wilson, this would easily be an 8 overall, a 9 when Lynch was there because of him and that Defense they have had, add Wilson to that they were a 10 back in 2013 and 2014. If Andrew gets injured this season we are in deep trouble, it wont be 8-8 Average, Hass made a lot of that happen. It will be closer to 6-10. I think our Coaching staff has a lot to prove too, I do like Chud as I think he will be good for Andrew.    -Bottomline we are a 4 without Andrew. Andrew makes us a 7. 7 is Good but not SB material.
    • What a crazy preseason it has been already with the cancelled HOF game, the impressive play of our rookies and all of the injuries we are dealing with.    Hopefully everybody gets away from this one healthy. I want to see more 3 wide sets from the offense and somebody, anybody to step up at cb on defense.
    • No that was the other Patriots RB (Vereen).  He is a between the tackles guy.

    • Hey there Amy,    Nice to meet ya & don't be shy. It's an awesome mixture of deep thinkers, jokesters, & diehard horseshoe fans here. All opinions & perspectives are welcome here. We have football fanatics, causal observers, & just curious people on here who like to vent, blow steam, broaden their horizons, & just chuckle at stuff the regulars always say. All team allegiances are encouraged to express themselves politely & peacefully here, which is pretty cool too.    I just watch the games at home on Direct TV Sunday ticket by myself usually.
