Colts Schedule

102 posts in this topic

Wow, 4 NFC West teams in the first 5. Might be good warm ups before playing the tough part of our schedules. 

 

Sunday Night at Seahawks, Monday Night at Titans and Thanksgiving Thursday night vs Broncos (mostly a win).

 

I LOVE the fact that we have a TON of 1 pm ET games, because for some reason our 1 pm ET performances tend to be good. So, the Steelers game at 1 pm ET, I am hoping is not flexed later.

2 of the final 4 could be snow games. Help them in the playoffs if they have to travel.

Wasn't alive too enjoy it, but I have a lot of late 60's Colts media guides and magazines. NFL coastal division Colts,Rams, 49ers, & Falcons. Colts won it in 68, Rams 69, Colts and Rams both went 11-1-2 in 67 Rams won the tie-breaker on last game of the season in the LA coliseum. payback time!! lol

playing the Texans to end the season, they have won the division with 9-7 records the last two years. Colts 1 game back both times.

Split vs Jags and Titans, sweep Houston, beat Steelers (which means they win SB because Myra Kraft dies and Patriots make SB, Art Modell dies and Ravens win SB, Bowlen deals with Alzheimer and Broncos win SB, and Rooney dies, so Steelers at least make SB, not to make light of it but I am into patterns :dunno:), beat Broncos, other losses vs Cardinals and Seahawks, and 1 more loss to Bengals/Ravens but not both.

 

I am leaning towards 11-5

W/L projections never pan out, no one had Atlanta in the SB51 after three straight non winning seasons, and no one had Atlanta losing SB51 up 28-3 either.

Losing at home to the Texans have been devastating for the last two seasons, this time it will be more important to protect home turf!

Always a weird anomaly with the Colts schedule (not saying that's not true of other teams, but...)

 

Week 15, Thursday night, against the Broncos. Decent matchup, not a Jags or Titans game like it always seems to be (except last year, which was Thanksgiving, so it was going to be a premiere matchup). One of the only positive takeaways from a Thursday night game is that you get 10 days before the next game, right?

 

Wrong. Week 16, Saturday game. Against the Ravens. On the road.

 

It's official, the schedulers hate us.

I don't even know who the QB of Houston will be next season? Savage? Yates? Schaub? Carr? Tebow? Kapernick? some college guy that I know nothing about? the Defensive line is scary though.

I'm going to try and go to the season opener in LA.  This is quite a different schedule than what they were getting the last couple of years.  I guess starting off the schedule with division opponents got a little old.

Obviously just looking at it right now we got no idea, but those last 4 games could be pretty tough.

 

At Buffalo, vs Denver, At Baltimore, vs Houston.

 

All 4 got good defenses and weather will likely play a big part in the roadies (specifically in buffalo).

Offensive line will get a good test week one.

Does it matter if all they do is hand it to Lamar Miller for 100 plus yards? :)

The scary line can't score points though

Hopefully our improved Dline will put a stop to that.  Keep my fingers crossed.

That has been my plan since the Rams moved. Now the schedule is out, and I already have a non-optional engagement that weekend. 

 

Unbelievable. I hate this schedule.

J.J. Watt a couple of years ago was a touchdown machine on both sides of the ball, he didn't do much at all last season.

There is two ways to avoid that

 

keep them away from the end zone and get away from ours

    •   As long as it is not a typo, I will be prepared.
    •   I saw that too.  I can make it work, but I thought we were doing Sunday, September 3rd, in the afternoon?   No?
    • No prob. I think colt and pat fans can get along.  Did i just say that?  I threw up a lil in my mouth just thinking about it. The pats are easy to hate. (For the rest of the league)  
    •   Michael Phelps challenges whale to race  
    •   I was just pointing out when I look at stats, I will look to see what makes up the stats, how are the stats come by, are the stats effected by things like play calling (run the ball in the end zone or pass it), coaching (are you a passing team or a ball control team) etc.  Then i can get a better gauge on stat as to whether or not, and to what extent, I think that it is reflective of the intrinsic value contributed by a player.  Drew Brees throws over 5000 yards a handful of times, and so on.    With Passing yards and passing TDs, there is element where a player has an opportunity to garner these stats and not necessarily by his own skill.   If Team A (like the Pats in SB 51) are trailing (or are in shootout and need to keep scoring as its D is a sieve and keeps yielding score for score) in say 12 games, then the offense on that team will still be running and gunning till the end of the game in 12 games. And in the other 4 games they are in control and the offense and the team are trying run out the clock.  And say the team throws for an extra 80-100 yards and 1 TD on average in those 12 games they will throw an additional 1000 yards and 12 TDs.   Lets flip it around and say Team B is the exact opposite and is in a shootout for 4 games and running out the clock in 12 games and all else is the same.  Well they with throw for an additional 400 yards and 4 TDs.   And lets add that we know that each QB can do the same regardless of which team he is on.    We will have at the end of the season QB for Team A will of had an opportunity to put up 600 more passing yards and 8 passing TDs.  So if the two end up as follows:   QB Team A:  4600 yards, 38 TDs QB Team B:   4000 yards, 30 TDs   As first look it looks like QB on Team A is the "better" QB, but when we look to the above, understand that either QB could do same on the other team, the separation is not attributed to intrinsic talent of the QB but merely the fact that one more opportunities to cumulate stats.     And this is just a illustration to show my point.  it could just as easily be just 4 games versus 1 game where each thrown for 150 yards each and 1 TD and thus the overall difference would be 450 yards and 3 TDs, and so on.   So that is why i would like to be able get our hands around stats similar to the above to get a better gauges on the end yearly numbers.   My sense in reading some responses is that the colts did not have a good a defense as the pats, that they had more offensive weapons; and as such, likely might of found themselves in Team A's situation more times than Team B's.  I do not mean 12 games, but what ever it is, be nice to know it to get a more weighted value in the end.    Btw, i loved what you did with the comparisons and looked to each player against their contemporaries and that gives a better gauge then trying to compare  a player from 2014 to one in 1982.
