So, we'll definitely be going on the road for the first game and it's looking like we'll be playing the winner of the AFC North. So two questions:

Who would you rather the Colts face?

Who do you think WILL win the AFC North?

We won't be playing Denver, unless you think Denver will lose against either the Browns or Chiefs AT HOME.

We're not playing Denver lol.

The AFC North is baffling at times but I like the story lines vs. any of them:

1) Ravens-Pagano's return. And we play vs. Caldwell!

2) Steelers-Arians vs. Pittsburgh, yippie.

3) Bengals-Nothing as noteable but a budding Luck/Dalton rivalry could emerge for fans and the media for the future.

If you guys were to upset anybody in the playoffs I would expect it to be the Ravens.  That offense is in complete disarray and they're in a pretty awful situation with Flacco, who is not good but still better than they've managed in some time and has a pay day coming up.

 

That said, if Ray Lewis is back on the field you never know what could happen to that defense.  The man ain't what he used to be but when big games role around his ability to get his teammates going and make a few big plays is something you can't help but respect.

I see us playing either the Ravens or Bengals.  Both would be good games and both provide an opportunity for a W.  We should remain in the 5th seed providing we beat KC this week.

I'm scared of Baltimore....I hear they have an offensive coordinator of outstanding football IQ, a real X's and O's genius.

The Broncos drop either game and the Pats win out it will be Broncos playing wild card weekend.

The Colts could still end up facing Denver but I'm all for going to Baltimore just for the warm welcome the Colts always receive for "old home" week......

 

Go Blue!

That, and his ability to whip them into a frenzy.

I'm just glad we got Clyde to offset it.

  Very true. They need his leadership desperately, the people in Baltimore have gone totally wacko and are in panic mode. A loss in the first round would definitely not go over well with the players or the fans, not with the aspirations they had this season.

1) The Colts are going to get in the playoffs - it is a virtual lock. 

2) The Broncos have a bye right now and finish with home games against the Browns and the Chiefs.  The Colts will not be playing Denver unless it is in the divisional round

3) The word is their not there as in "forget what their record is."

I would prefer the Bengals if for no other reason than that would be a playoff game we attend.

I think playing the Ravens would be our best bet.

 

Then we can see one last hoorah of the Caldwellface. <- the same look before win, and the same look after we win.

With all of the defemsive injuries to both Baltimore and Cincinatti, I'd take either. I thionk our D better matches with Baltimore, so I'd want Baltimore.

My newest fear lately is that Pittsburgh wins out and the Ravens continue to self destruct. Wouldn't it just be OUR LUCK to draw the Steelers. After 1995 and 2005 we all cringe at these guys.

If we go to Pittsburgh we either squeak it out and finally get revenge or we get jobbed by the refs and just lose again. We tend to have heart pounding playoff games vs. them......

Many compare this team to the vibes of 1995 so playing the Steelers would be the height of irony.

Also Arians would be foaming at the mouth if we drew Pittsburgh somehow.

Isn't it amazing. The Steelers are still alive as always. They lose so what. They are usually alive....and both their final games are at home.

The Steelers could also grab the 6th seed but watching Baltimore lately I am wondering if they will show any signs of life in the next few weeks. They look just pathetic. And now their offense is joining the D in injuries. The Flacco/Caldwell genius combo needs to pick it up vs. the G men or Bengals.....

So it will be interesting to see how this mess in the North all works itself out.

There is no scenario where we are kept out of the playoffs/  With the jets loss we are in.  If the steelers and ravens winout.  THey are both in.  Bengals win out and steelers win in final week.  Its the bengals and the ravens.    If we ALL 4 finish with a 9-7 record its the steelers and ravens and we have the 6th seed.  No matter how you try to turn it, flip it, spin it, whatever, we are in.  I personally believe it will be us against the Ravens as the 5th seed.  Then we would get Houston again if we win.

Steelers are eliminated.

We will play the winner of the Bengals vs Ravens game next week.

I was wrong. Doesn't matter who wins next week.

Colts will be playing the Ravens for sure.

Ravens can still get the 3rd seed if they beat the Bengals and Miami win at New England. Unlikely, but still a small chance.

Ugh, you are right!

There is an outside chance for us to be playing New England, but more than likely it'll be Baltimore.

    • That article was fascinating and inspiring. Thanks for sharing it and thanks to all the people involved in training service dogs.  I had no idea about any of this
    • I think the players being on the field for the anthem started in 2009. He could change that but it probably would not set well with the players and the media could jump "racist" in a heartbeat. This protest looks silly with only a couple players out of the whole team taking a knee.
    • The Indianapolis Colts today elevated tackle Jeremy Vujnovich to the 53-man roster from the practice squad.  Vujnovich, 6-5, 300 pounds, has spent the entire season on the Colts practice squad. He participated in Indianapolis’ 2016 offseason program and training camp before being waived during final cuts on September 3. Vujnovich spent the last two seasons on the Green Bay Packers practice squad. He originally signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent on January 7, 2014.   Collegiately, Vujnovich started 28-of-29 career games at Louisiana College from 2009-2012. As a senior in 2012, he earned First Team American Southwest Conference honors, Second Team All-Louisiana recognition by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association and Second Team All-South Region accolades by D3football.com after starting 10 games at left tackle. In 2011, Vujnovich started nine games at left tackle and earned First Team ASC honors. As a sophomore in 2010, he earned All-ASC honorable mention honors after starting nine games at left tackle. Vujnovich saw action in one game as a true freshman in 2009. View the full article
    • Clearly the Jags have not lived up to the preseason hype and the Colts are not living up to their expectations. On paper the Jags aren't missing the players the Colts are but the Colts are showing a refusal to die and I see them coming out on top. Both teams need to get desperate to win with the now wounded duck Texans and this an AFC South game. It is impossible to ignore the potential of Lucks talent in a match up like this.
    • I became a Colts fan in 1984 when they came to Indy & took up residence in the Hoosier Dome later renamed The RCA Dome .   We had many up & down seasons eventually we had our first really good season that year Jim Harbaugh became our starting QB  we called him Captain Comeback & our Colts that season the Cardiac Colts it was a thrill ride till the very last play of the AFC Championship Game in 3 Rivers Stadium that year Indiana became a Football State for real it was awesome .   this is a link that you may enjoy ..   http://www.colts.com/news/article-1/COLTS-SEASON-IN-REVIEW--1995/03f1e9a8-74d7-48cd-9023-dce191257e68   Peyton Manning drafted in 1998 was seen as our next great hope & he did'nt disappoint but he did get off to a slow start .   Now with Andrew Luck I feel we are once again in great hands as in 98 our future looks bright ..
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
