1.- Perhaps we have the best chance for beating Ravens

2-3. None. -being in PO was already miraculous, and a kind of glory for an underrated and underestimated team...I think a decent loss would be gracious, no matter who was the opponent. However some "experts" still would bash us for not winning AFC (however they projected us being in the race for #1 pick again before the season).

I think the texans or broncos. The broncos are good, but I think our vets will want to prove something to everyone who said they'd be nothing without Peyton.

1. Right now, it is toss up between the Ravens and Broncos. I would rather head into Denver than Baltimore. I have been to a Ravens-Colts playoff game in Baltimore and the crowd is raucous beyond belief.

2. I hate losing, but if I had to choose, losing to Peyton wouldn't be such a bad thing in my mind.

3. Pats, I would absolutely hate losing to the Pats because of all the history between the teams. I could care less about winning or losing against the Ravens.

honestly im hoping we play the broncos. im sure Freeney and MAthis are hoping they play the broncos. could you imagine the hunger that Freeney and Mathis will have in that game??? they will finaly get to hit peyton manning and we all know they have been waiting a VERY LONG time for the oppertunity. i honestly believe that could be the one game where the defense steps up and possibly even the colts winning the game.

1. Which team do you think we have the best chance of Upsetting,Broncos-Pats-Ravens? Ravens When Flacco isn't playing his best it shows. He's done really well at home, but who knows?

2. Which team would you mind Least losing to,Broncos-Pats-Ravens? Ravens But they all would suck. Don't want to lose to Peyton and have to hear the boohooing over losing him, don't want to lose to the Pats because... well you know, and don't want to lose to the Ravens because it's Pagano's former team and there is some bad blood towards the Colts in Baltimore, but I'll pick the Ravens, just not as bad as losing to Peyton or the Patriots.

3. Which team would you hate most losing to,Broncos-Pats-Ravens? Patriots

Why are the Texans left out of the OP equation? Just curious.

1. Ravens

2. Broncos - I couldn't be mad at Peyton.

3. Patriots - I can't stand losing to Bill and Tom.

Are you suggesting that there is some animosity there? One of them mentioned waiting to hit him early this year, but one would assume that it was intended as a joke. Not only is he a longtime teammate, but without him their career paths would have been far less interesting, and they would likely have far fewer millions in the bank. The bigger question is why does it sound like YOU want to see them hit him. My preferred result would be for the Colts to play anyone but the Broncos.

1 - Ravens. Their defense appears to be vulnerable and their offense is far less explosive than the other two.

2 - Broncos - although this match-up is also the last thing that I want to see.

3 - Patriots of course. I actively root for the Patriots to lose regardless of who they are playing. I actually like the two other teams.

Peyton would make this secondary look ridiculous, like clowns.

The Ravens are who I predict we will play... if we make it.

1. Broncos-I'll say what some may be afraid to say; It's Peyton Manning with his history in the playoffs in potentially a cold bad weather game with all the pressure of the world on him. Not saying we win, but I would take my chances and hope we get in his head after a week of media hoopla.

2. Ravens-I felt they deserved it last season. And I feel for guys like Ed Reed and Ray Lewis at times because I really felt like they deserved it last season. I have a soft spot for great defenders.

3. Broncos-Just the thought of all the potential "I told you so's" and veiled smugness from Peyton/BronColt fans makes me cringe even though our team would have made it drastically farther then expected if they were even there.

@ No 1 Manning Fan

The Texans are expected to have 1st round bye and Colts are a wild card team and play the 1st game against a lower record than the Texans who didn't get a bye...

1. Ravens

2. Ravens

3. patriots

Why do you think they waited long time for the opportunity to hit Peyton? And why would they overly cheer the opportunity to go after their former teammate with whom they had so much success and benefited from his game?

The problem with that theory is he is no longer playing on the Colts. :) Sure, in a fantasy world, I wouldn't mind facing some of the former Colt teams he played on. Today, he enjoys an actual defense, respectable running game and occasional help from his special teams. In Denver, you would be facing a real football team, not a Polian team.

you mean his history of putting the colts on his shoulders and getting them to the playoffs? denver's weather isn't nearly as bad as people thing it is. it may get cold and snow, but the mountains protect the city from much of the wind

Patriots.

We were able to move the ball on them the entire game. IF (big if) Luck plays flawless and we could get some heat on Brady we'd have a chance i think. Dont think wed actually win though.

1) Ravens, no question. Their defense isn't quite as scary as it usually is with all the injuries, and they don't have the offensive firepower of the other two teams.

2) Broncos, no question. I'd be happy for Manning.

3) Pats, no question. That never changes, no matter the situation.

Ravens. Something about Wacko Flacco doesn't impress me, he is good at home and awful on the road. We'll have to play on the road, so hopefully he'll stink up the joint.

2. Which team would you mind Least losing to,Broncos-Pats-Ravens?

Broncos, obvious reason. Manning gave this franchise his best and I wouldn't mind him winning another SB if we have no shot at one.

3. Which team would you Hate most losing to,Broncos-Pats-Ravens - Patriots.

Tom Brady, Hoodie and company. Don't think I hate a team more then them. Friend is also a Patriots fan.

your really going to ask that?? lol every defender wants to hit their QB in practice especially when their QB has the name like Manning,Brady, Brees etc. heck he was even quoted in saying he wanted to go after him....

"Peyton obviously is the staple of Indianapolis and this organization for years," Freeney told Dameshek and his co-host, Adam Rank. "I went after him in practice year in and year out and never got a chance to hit him. So yeah, I would love to hit him."

There are numerous people and things on here that make me cringe...... I rise above it / them.

1 - Ravens

2 - Broncos

3 - Patriots

I think it's pretty self-explanatory. I think the Ravens are somewhat overrated and the weakest of those three teams. The Broncos have Manning, so if we lost to them I'd have the "consolation" that Manning was moving on (not that the loss would in any way shape or form be "positive," however). And, I can't say what I want to about the Patriots without starting some kind of fan war, so I'll just leave it as that.

3. Patriots (Losing to a Team MULTIPLE Times in One Year is just depressing)

(Patriots should know, they always lose to the Giants smh)

    • Defensive expectation for Indy in 2016
      I guess Denver and Carolina had some pretty crappy offenses with a couple of crappy QBs.
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      I love our QB, I think he stays healthy, love our SPTeams with Vinny/Pat, and like our WR core with TY/Moncrief/Dorsett. Everything else is still shaky. Hopefully our Draft will solidify the O.Line, I am high on Kelly. Our Defense as a whole is shaky period but we can still win 9 or 10 games if they play just Average if Andrew stays healthy.
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      As far as depth goes and ONLY depth NOT starters   QB-D RB-C WR-D TE-C OL-D ILB-C CB-D OLB-D S-C P-A K-A   Our depth is not unlike a lot of teams, A lot of unproven players or players that really have shown they have no business seeing meaningful snaps
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Its easy to say Clark did not go a round to high knowing we drafted him in the 3rd. For all you or I know however he very well could have went in the 4th however had the Colts not picked him up. Again however I would have waited till the 4th. I think he would have still been around in the 4th. If only drafting an O Lineman based on raw tools meant he was a good O Lineman but alas it don't and it doesn't make it a good idea to pick O Lineman based on raw tools either...Ill take intelligence and fundamentals in the 1st 3 rounds over raw tools (At least as raw as Clark). Now in the 4th or later Ill take O Lineman with raw tools but lacks the basic fundamentals (example lining up in a 3 point stance, Proper hand placement. All correctable things of course).   He wasn't who I would have drafted in the 3rd. I had him as a 4th rounder simply because he was/is so raw. He does have good raw tools to work with of course but O lineman have went later than him that have had BETTER raw tools than him. Khaled Holmes is just the first name that comes to mind who went in the 4th round. Hugh Thornton is another name. Christian Westerman went in the 5th and he has better raw tools that Clark. The truth is we don't know how many of the 32 draft boards made by NFL teams had him as a top 100 pick, Its entirely possible (even likely) that 1 team did not have him in their top 100.  Just because you did and some analysts did don't mean 32 NFL teams did   Do I dislike the pick? Not really. We could have had a better prospect than him however in the 3rd. Hell Ridgeway was a better prospect at another position that WE DID GET than Clark  was at his but fell do to conditioning and injury concerns, I had him as a 2nd rounder who had a shot to go in the 1st minus those concerns
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      It speaks volumes that you only got down to position 5 before my initial reaction was 'oh my God'.   4 position groups where I'm generally happy - including Special Teams and a O-Line that was an apparent weak point last year and has only had a rookie center brought into the starting group. Eek!

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
