Season opener likely to be Ravens @ Broncos

32 posts in this topic

"The Denver Post, citing sources, reported there is a strong possibility the Ravens will open the upcoming season against Peyton Manning and the Broncos in Denver."

 

A good match up to start the season off with. I don't really see a real setback for the SB Champions. Other than fans remaining silent when the offense has the ball & generating serious noise when their opponent is on the field, I think home field advantage is overrated except if your squad wins the top seed in the Playoffs along with a bye week.

And your safety isn't Rahim Moore.

I like the game, but not the location. Of course, the NFL wouldn't move this Thursday night game to Wednesday, to reward the Super Bowl Champions. Baltimore is screwed once again!!

I blame the Orioles

 

 

Not the Orioles fault as hopefully they will be in the pennant race when this game is played. It is a bummer when you win the Super Bowl, and don't get a home opener. However, Baltimore fans are used to getting a cold fish in the face from the NFL. They got it during the Colts years, and it continues during the Raven's years. No respect !

You still have to win post season games no matter where your team is seeded in the Playoffs. Just ask Bill Cowher & the 2005 Steelers or the 2012 Ravens for that matter.

the game should be in baltimore :facepalm:

Tradition wise & NFL history wise you are 100% correct SD. The Ravens as SB Champions do deserve the right to play this game at home. But, then again, life isn't fair. I am not worth billions of dollars financially & I don't have a beautiful red headed woman to call my wife either. So, I don't feel that bad for John Harbaugh & the Ravens. We all must simply deal with the hand we have dealt in life & move on. The Ravens will adjust & adapt just fine.

If this is true...its very good for Denver....

 

I think you always want to play the team that eliminated you and Baltimore will be much better later in the upcoming season...

 

 

With Wes Welker and a bulked up O-line.....against a totally rebuilt Baltimore defense...in 70-degree weather?

 

This will go well for the Broncos....

They don't want to open on the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah.

Then they shouldn't play on Christmas or the opening day of Ramzan or Diwali either. :)

Naturally, I respect all religious doctrines & observances, but sometimes it seems as though it is difficult to follow player beliefs & NFL broadcasting/game day obligations at the same time. Not always an easy undertaking is it? Finding a middle ground is often easier said than done FX & Chad.

All I wanna do is forbid Dallas from playing in the Thanksgiving Game...I guess I've just had my fill of the Cowboys playing in November from the John Madden/Pat Summerall TV booth days. haha  lmao

Why can't the Colts play vs the Redskins for the Thanksgiving game? 2 young QB guns & 2 SB worthy franchises within the next few years? That would be a great November game IMO...

Hey, that reminds me the NFL schedule show is coming out soon. Sweet! I love it when the schedule show comes out. I hope we face Seattle this year too. Colts vs SeaHawks...A great SB matchup...

 

Yeah, I know it will probably be the Broncos vs the 49ers...Another cool SB matchup.  :rock:

If that does happen, I agree 100% FX. I hope that Mr. Moore has learned to never let a WR get behind him. Keep everybody in front of you man. Please... haha Don't let me down twice man...

Oh yeah, I'm giddy like a kid on Christmas morning now. Lets bring out the BIG guns & see what we are made of. Although, if Seattle gets to benefit from an illegal interception call that the zebras mess up against my Colts, I'm gonna be furious... :rant:  :flaming:

 

Thanks QuizBoy for cluing me in.  ;)

JJ Watt is going have a field day applying constant pressure on Russell Wilson all game long QuizBoy. I can't wait to see that & Ed Reed will have 2 picks. I'm calling it now.

 

Funny, if Pete Carroll had gotten Peyton Manning under center in the Pacific Northwest, he would have never drafted UW-Madison graduate Russell Wilson. That's why the drama of the NFL is so AWESOME!

haha yeah hopefully Watt will be quick enough to stop Wilson when he gets out of the pocket too. Reed's experience facing 12 and Kaep is also a plus when it comes to game planning versus the young fast guys. And I can't even imagine PM in that Seahawks uniform...that would be stranger than the orange lol

Jesus, I forgot you guys have LB Brian Cushing back too...Darn, I love that kid's motor...The guy's a freaking STUD...Ed Reed the smartest & most instinctive safety in football...Not a young pup anymore, but wicked smart.

 

Peyton is Seattle colors? I agree too weird QuizBoy, but the orange crush look is growing on me man.  :D

    • Yes. Things were pretty thin towards the end for sure.
    • He's had a whopping 9 carries? I'm not saying he has recovered from MCL and ACL tears in his knee about half way through 2014. He obviously wasn't healthy w/Jets last year. If he gets back close to a 100% he's immediately the 2nd best back on our roster.    He's almost 2yrs removed from the injury  if he's going to bounce back this is the year. I like the signing lets get an up close look before teams cut to 53. I think it says more about our current back ups more than anything else. 
    • Yep. And yes its preseason, but mark my words. Judon is going to be a very good EDGE rusher for Baltimore. I wanted him so bad. Had him in almost all my mock drafts in the 5th-6th range. Lets hope Grigson was right for taking Haeg, Morrison, etc. I don't remember what round they all went, but I know Judon was available when at least 1 of those 2 were picked. But yeah. I think Judon will end up being a double digit sack EDGE rusher by his 2nd or 3rd season.
    • The way you rate the O-Line, it appears other teams are salivating to pad up their sack totals.  Rightfully so, we simply are a * poor team lately, we are not very good.  Luck needs to invest on some of his money to get protective gear so he won't be like a punching bag machine...Another bad year, so what's new year right?
    • Anybody think Kap is doing this to get released?  Its the most logical answer, or he's simply a nit-wit. ok, he's a nit-wit.

    • Hello Colts Nation   I am a long time reader of this forum but never really participated in comments but hope to join in this season.   Been a Colts fan since the 'move' when i lived in Carmel.  Actually liked the Colts before that when i was younger but it was the uniform that appealed to me.    I am wondering how do I start a topic in a forum?  Do I have to have so many replies before approved?  I tried to find the rules topic on this but no luck.   Thanks   Edit: I finally found the section on the rules to posting.  :-)
