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.

    •   Not only wouldn't they win a Super Bowl,  they wouldn't make the playoffs.   They'd likely struggle to win 8 games.   There's no short-cut for experience.     Not even great talent....  
    • Me too! I think speed, quickness and good hands ought to work. I wonder if he can block in pass pro?
    • What about a rookies/sophomores team combo? That might be a much better chance at winning the Super Bowl.   QB - Carson Wentz, Dak Prescott RB - Ezekiel Elliott, Jordan Howard RB/FB - Leonard Fournette TE - Hunter Henry, OJ Howard, Evan Engram WR - Michael Thomas, Corey Davis, Tyreke Hill, Christian MaCaffrey OT - Jack Conklin, Ronnie Staley, Laremy Tunsil, Taylor Decker OG - Cody Whitehair, Forrest Lamp C - Ryan Kelly, Nick Martin   DE - Myles Garrett DT - Joey Bosa DT - DeForest Buckner DE - Soloman Thomas   OLB - Noah Spence, Yannick Ngakoue ILB - Haason Reddick, Reuben Foster OLB - Deion Jones, Darron Lee   CB - Jalen Ramsey, Vernon Hargraves Jr, Artie Burns SS - Keanu Neal, Karl Joseph, Jabrill Peppers FS - Jamal Adams, Malik Hooker   K - Rigoberto Sanchez P - Austin Rekhow
    • I wouldn't call protecting your kid as coddling with over 300,000 brain injuries in the US every year. I guess those 300,000 unlikely injuries didn't happen?
    •   Haven't seen the video, nor am I any good at determining injuries from them (Dr. Chao is quite good at it though...)   I never heard, then or up until and including now, concerning vasculature or neuro issues.  That indicated to me back then, and still does today, that TB could regain his starting QB job   But a QB competition could serve them both well.at some point in time .  But lets be real.  TB is still not recovered... when he does he will not be 'as good as new'.  But agree he could be quite nice anyway. And... he will have to earn (beat out Sam) his QB job back.  It won't be handed to him on a platter, trust me.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
