Away: Texans, Jags, Titans, Chiefs, Chargers, Cardinals, 49ers, & Bengals

Really glad to see we have Seattle at home. Seattle is a tough place to play. I could see us going 12-4 next year and winning the division. I know it's super early, but I can!

I knew the Sea/Rams and SF/AZ would be paired up, but I was thinking SF/AZ were going to be in Indy.  I agree - we caught a major break not having to go to Sea.  I'm not predicting our W/L record, but I will predict that we'll get 4 primetime games.

 

Hosting Den and Peyton's return will be an obvious SNF game.  Could be in early Nov like the Colts/Pats games of the past.  The Thurs night game on NFLN will either be a division opponent or maybe @ Cincy.  The SF or Sea is probably another SNF game (pick your storyline - Lucks/Harbs reunion in Cali or a matchup of the young guns Luck/Wilson in Indy).  We'll also get a MNF game - maybe against Hou if they don't play us on a Thurs.

For Luck, it is probably SNF vs Peyton at home, TNF vs division opponent (hopefully not Texans), and could be MNF game at SF. I see 3 primetime games for Luck the upcoming season.

 

Peyton's road schedule is quite the line up - at Indy, at Houston (2 AFC South road games), at Foxboro, at Cowboys, at Giants (2 NFC East road games), in addition to his divisional road games. It would be nice to get Peyton and the Broncos here following one of the above road games for the Broncos but we will see how they spread it out.

I'm glad we don't have to play at Seattle. I'm also glad that Peyton gets a homecoming. That is sure to be an emotional game. Hopefully he gets a standing ovation. I think with the right moves in the offseason, we should be able to make the playoffs again. This season, I didn't expect much, but we win the winnable, now if we can grow and mature, we will be in good shape.

Going to SF for MNF would be tough.  If that happens, I hope we have a bye the following week.  They stuck it to us in 2009 when we had back to back road primetimers against Mia and AZ - we still won, but damn that was brutal.

 

Wow - Peyton does have a tough road schedule!

The big TV networks always liked putting Peyton on the road because he won home games comfortably, according to them.

 

Going to SF for MNF may not be bad for Luck and the Colts, if we had Jags or Titans to come back home to, IMO, with possibly a 4:15 p.m. ET time slot in the next game.

Those two matchups are huge next year, both with media and W's. Will really test us.

Tougher schedule but not brutal...No GB, no New England..I agree obvioiusly about Seattle and Denver, much better to not play them in Denver....

This is a pretty good schedule..but there's no way to tell how we'll do until we find out who we have on our team and what order do we play these teams in...

Agreed. What worries me is, we are up against pretty good defenses in Broncos, Rams, Seahawks, Bengals, 49'ers, Texans... Dat O-line needa get fixed.

Part of me hopes the Indy/Denver game is week 1. Just to get it out the way..  If it's week 8, you know there will be threads all off season, and training camp, and then the next week 7 weeks. Just get it out of the way.

Yeah, I agree. But you know that's going to be a night game, probably mid season. You can imagine the talking heads will be in a frenzy that week. "Student vs Master", etc.

That's one game I don't want to even attempt to get a ticket.

I would say it will be mid-season too...This place will be a zoo.

This is wrong. In 2009, Colts played at home vs. Seattle and at Arizona. Next year we will play at Seattle and at home vs. Arizona.

Hmmm, I may have to venture to my first Colts road game in Cincinnati next year. Not a bad schedule on paper.

No November game @ New England? Clearly must be a misprint :)

Yes, will be interesting to see how all three teams respond next year. I'll be at the Seattle game because I live on the west coast. Off topic, but did you think Houston's running game,particularly Foster regresed a little this year? Had him and AJ on my FF team so watched a lot of games and didn't see the same consistent explosiveness from Foster. Maybe on the OL some?

I looked into going to the KC game this year. I could get tickets for $25 each. There was lots of them. I glad I didn't go with temp at kick off at 29 degrees. Wife hates to cold and would'nt have enjoyed it.

Next year I think if the KC game is early enough I'd like to go. Road games are a blast. Wife and I went to Jacksonville 3 or 4 years ago to a Thursday night game. We had a blast. Sat behind some Dallas and Saints fans from North Carolina on their way to the Dallas vs Saints game. They were making a week of it I guess. They were a blast. This was the year that both the Colts and Saints were 13-0. The Saints fan kept telling us that after that week only the Saints would be 14-0 after every Jags score. The Dallas fan keep saying the Colts would be the only 14-0 team. Also Planning on going to the Denver game to see Peyton 1 more time. I bet Ursay puts Peyton in the ring of honor that day.

This is wrong. In 2009, Colts played at home vs. Seattle and at Arizona. Next year we will play at Seattle and at home vs. Arizona.

For divisions with multiple WC teams (AFC west and NFC west), the league changed the groupings in 2010.  SD is grouped with KC, Oak is grouped with Den, SF is grouped with AZ, and StL is grouped with Sea.  It's east coast bias after the Pats complained about going out to the west coast 4 times in 2008.

 

Looking at the rotations for the AFC divisions who played the NFC west from 2010 to this year, I was thinking that we'd host SF and AZ and go to Sea and StL in 2013.  Either way, Indy and Hou are going to be paired up with SF/AZ and Sea/StL.

I see...so guess I could be wrong. I didn't realize it was changed. So it's based on 2010 forward now...

Seattle IN INDY? Score!!!! You do not want to play there. Obviously.

 

I thought we had to go there and SF. I would rather got to SF then Seattle.

 

BTW Luck vs. Harbaugh should be fun too. :)

I hope it's week 17, speculation on the starters sitting in that game would be great.

Most say it's the o-line yes.

I heard it's changed because they don't want teams going west too much or something. Even though Arizona is west, Seattle is farther west. That's why it's changed.

Really kind of sad not having the Pats on the schedule, except for 2002 they have played every year since 1970.

From the looks of it I'd safely bet my farm that I'll be at the houston game.

I'd LOVE to hit that niners game. My wife's originally from an hour south of there and our son (he's 19 now) is die hard niners. His face alone would be worh the costs.

For whatever reason they swapped zone and Seattle we are due to go out to Seattle and zona is due to come here based on the last time we played the west but this works in our favor. Seattle is not the same team on the road.

    • I agree, Pagano says a lot of vanilla statements -- but in this case he is saying "well documented", which is true -- our running D, with Art in the lineup was allowing significantly less YPC.  This is when he is actually on the field, not sitting on the bench.  Here are the stats  -- http://espn.go.com/blog/indianapolis-colts/post/_/id/13395/the-statistics-show-that-the-colts-need-art-jones-on-the-field-to-stop-the-run :   WITHOUT JONES ON THE FIELD 257 rushes for 1,201 yards (4.67 yards per rush) 3.12 yards before contact per rush 12 rushing TDs (4.7 percent of rushes) First downs allowed on 26 percent of rushes WITH JONES ON THE FIELD 165 rushes for 615 yards (3.73 yards per rush) 2.15 yards before contact per rush 2 rushing TDs (1.2 percent of rushes) First downs allowed on 22 percent of rushes   ------------------------------------------------------------------ These numbers are pretty staggering, at least in my opinion (all of them -- the contact before rush sticks out the most to me, but the YPC, TD, and First Downs are all significant, too).   All that said, Jones has not been sidelined more than he's been on the field.  This PED suspension doesn't help the team and as you've said earlier, we won't miss him that much.  I don't agree with you that we won't miss him due to him not being a significant contributor when he is on the field (that he has been) -- but, he hasn't been healthy enough to be on the field long enough to really warrant missing him.... violating the league substance abuse policy doesn't help this team and doesn't help Jones.  If I'm the coach/GM, Jones is on a very short leash (or perhaps already dismissed) for this.
    • And so another rumor is laid to rest. Good riddance.
    • Do it for Pagel          
    • When is the draft going to be?
    • It was similar to what Jones ran at Baltimore but not the same.  That is why I was I didn't think his poor play was earth shattering.   Yup, I ran the numbers of the games he played and the games he didn't play.  In the games he played the Colts allowed a lower YPC average than the games he didn't play.  The odd thing as I was running the numbers though, is with Jone in the game the opposing team used the running game a lot more.  With Jones teams ran the ball an average of 28.667 times per game, without Jones they ran the ball 20.33 times per game.  Without Jones the COlts D gave a lot more long running plays, with Jones, they gave up a lot more first downs via the ground.    So, I will admit I was wrong about the higher YPC with Jones.  But I still would not quanitify what Jones did as a significant contribution to the run defense, mainly because teams were able to grind out the running game and keep the chains moving and keep the Colts O off the field.   Lastly, quoting Pagano doesn't really mean a lot.
