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.

the I-74 thing could fuel a rivalry. only 112 miles between our fair cities

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.

    • I believe Thadius Young will make an impact also as well as a healthy Jefferson
    • Yeah, that is good to see that Josh finally saw the light & while I agree with Jvan that Gordon knew in all likelihood he was about to fail his next drug test, an addict has to hit rock bottom on their own timetable. The realization light doesn't happen during an NFL suspension window alone, but when the addict knows it's time to seek professional help.    I always wonder why franchises release statement of support & then cut their caboose. It's like a husband celebrating 10 yrs together with his wife on their anniversary by banging his secretary & then handing her divorce papers before desert arrives.   Surprise! We love you so much Josh & the maturity you are showing that we want absolutely nothing to do with your life anymore. Gee thanks. 
    • I don't get this thread... What's wrong with Allen? He had a drop?    He bails out the O-Line on a regular basis. He's a pretty reliable route runner and pass catcher. Doyle is good, but you need 2, really. 
    • You're a good guy CC1 & I love your sense of humor. That's why I love this forum so many amigos are just as sarcastic as I am & smart too that goes without saying. You always have a refreshing perspective on things.    I was watching a "Modern Family" re-run on TV yesterday where the dad was more proud of a fencing trophy than his son was. He wanted to quit & not fight a female in the Championship round. The father convinced him to compete anyway & just as the dad puts the trophy in his bedroom not his son's room he says with a beaming grin on his face "guilt is temporary, but hardware lasts forever." Ba! Ha! Ha!    Moms are always from the school of just do your best son I will love you no matter what vs dads who are like win it all or you are nothing to me & the honor of the family name.    It sounds harsh, but the episode was hysterical. God, I love brilliantly deployed sarcasm. It's the best.

    • 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.
