The Bears manhandled us. We've been fortunate not to face too many great defensive fronts this season. Detroit was physical upfront too but their secondary is soo bad we were still able to win. We don't fair well against those type of teams. I see a scary game playing against Watts and Houston's front 7 coming up. Lucky for us we have the easiest schedule in the NFL and play in perhaps the weakest division. Luck is fine with pressure off the ends because he can step up in the pocket...but if you put pressure in his face and he can't step up....he makes A TON of mistakes. This is just how it is for all NFL qbs. Brady, Peyton, Brees...you let them have a clean pocket or room to step up they are money....if you get pressure up the middle...get them off their mark...they are merely mortal. Chicago has just been desimated by the injury bug and their o-line is worse than ours...we have just done a better job of having the next man up do his job.

the weakest division is the AFC EAST, other than the Pats the rest are just fiting to be around .500

I might argue that the AFC West is even worse. It's close, though.

I live near Chicago and the vast majority are Chicago fans so I hear about it all the time. My answer to that is it is a good thing it was the first game of the season, they wouldn't win now....and they don't argue much.

How about 2-3 after getting smashed by the Jets.

And then proceeding to win 7 out of our last 8 games, with Arians at the helm. Luck is still being talked about as a MVP candidate.

No way, AFC West. At least the Jets are still in contention for the playoffs. Bills and Dolphins are 5-8.

The AFC West is a complete joke, 10 combined wins excluding Denver. This is why Denver is incredibly overrated and has basically been dominated against good teams (pats, falcons, texans).

broncos could be dangerous though because their players might be fresher down the line

Yeah but it was still a tough matchup week 1 in the "new era." We might be able to take them now though.....

People often say how tough the NFC North is and our Colts went 3-1 vs. them. Not too shabby at all Colts. :)

    • Peyton Manning was nearly a titan in 2012
      And he would've gotten smacked twice a year by Luck. His record against us was what like , 1-4 with a stacked Broncos team? He wouldn't have faired any better on a depleted Titans team.
    • Ravens to receive discipline for using pads in Rookie camp
      Which is sad considering it tramples all over the CBA, which clearly states the number of padded practices a team can have and when they can have them. Coach should've gotten a 2 game suspension.
    • Sign WR James Jones - It makes too much sense.
      Beyond TY Hilton and Donte Moncrief, the Colts have very little experience at the WR position. Dorsett has a lot of upside, but only played about half the year last year due to the broken leg. Bray was pretty much exclusively used as a returner. The draft is over, and the FA market is pretty much bare - Except for one guy. James Jones.   Yeah, he's 32 years old. But he brings a ton of experience, and he's familiar with coach Joe Philbin. He probably wouldn't be able to demand any more than roughly $6 million over a 2 year deal, which is something we can certainly afford to shore up our passing offense. He's a guy that is willing and able to block, and at 6'1" he would be one of our biggest bodied receivers when we need a "possession" catch on 3rd and 4 or a guy to high point the ball in the red-zone.   Look at the production Jones has put up over the last 4 years, and tell me why this guy is still on the FA market.             Games Starts Catches Yards Avg Long TD       FUM Lost 2015 Green Bay Packers 16 15 50 890 17.8 65T 8 -- -- --     1 0   2014 Oakland Raiders 16 10 73 666 9.1 42 6 -- -- --     3 1   2013 Green Bay Packers 14 14 59 817 13.8 83T 3 -- --       2 1   2012 Green Bay Packers 16 16 64 784 12.3 49 14
      He lead the Packers with nearly 900 yards and 8 TDs last year. Add him to the Colts, and he can come right in and compete with Moncrief and Dorsett for snaps. He can give different looks, and give us a legitimate 4-Wide set. He can step in at the Slot, and allow the Colts to possibly move Dorsett to RB on 3rd downs. The coaches have spoken about possibly using Dorsett more out of the backfield, in kind of a HB Screen role or catching passes in the flats because we have no one else in our RB group that really excels as a pass catcher. Adding James Jones allows Dorsett to focus more on that role, without leaving us vulnerable and down a starting WR in the passing game. I don't and wouldn't expect Jones to put up 800-900 yards in our offense...we have some talented guys we are trying to develop, but James Jones can surely contribute to our offense and provide a "coach on the field" to our younger players.

      Should the Colts be signing James Jones today? Tomorrow? Or does it simply make too much sense?

      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.
