Knowing the Colts, they'll start the year at 2-3 with the losses being to LA, Cleveland, and San Fran, and the wins being against AZ and SEA haha.

 

But for real, I know it's early but I'd be disappointed with anything less than 3-2 to start the year. That's a cookie cutter start.

Better not lose to Cleveland is my early thought on this schedule.

 

2 very winnable early games with Goff and a nearly retired Palmer.

Week 1 will tell us a lot. If the Colts come out and do what they should against the Rams, this season could be a resurgence

We have a pretty solid chance at starting out 3-0

Agreed and I'm on the fire Pags wagon.

 

If they get anything resembling a pass rush we could and should see 3-0 against those QBs.

Agree on 3-0. Should be that heading to Seattle for SNF. That game would have quite the hype

Don't mark LA down as an easy win right now. Especially if Goff decides to breakout. And they still got a good defense. 

 

Remember, we were all marking down Detroit week 1 as an easy win last year. Look what happened.

 

A favourable start yes, but nothing in the NFL is guaranteed.

Man we have a solid chance of starting 3-0 and I love we play Houston here on the final day as well, that could decide the division.

I like this schedule, expect them to lockup the division early into the season :thmup:

Love that both of the games I am attending are early on too, see you in LA and Seattle!

I can imagine.  Hopefully, it will be a good game, with the Colts winning of course.

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.

That stinks dude!

I'm not sure the Bay Area will broadcast any sports that comes out of LA, unless a Bay Area team is involved.

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

With Hankins and a healthy Langford and Anderson, and a decent LB corp, I promise he will have a tough time breaking 80

Man, if the same teams are bad next year as they were this year, we got a cakewalk of a schedule.

I don't like always playing division opponent in last game of year. Mix it up.

That's not going to happen.  The league does that for a reason, to make the last game of the year more meaningful.

If we start 1-2 before heading to Seattle, Pagano's seat would get real hot.

We usually don't can coaches so we'd have to be like 1-6 or 7 before I'd see Jim canning Pags.

We don't have a healthy Luck yet. Remember when we were told Peyton Manning would be ready for the season and then he wasn't?  Nothing easy about an NFL schedule especially with injuries.

That's a league wide thing for every team, not just the Colts.

Especially with The uncertainty of Lucks rehab.   He my not be ready

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.

We play the broncos in December

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!

Yeah we can't allow that to happen again

Thanks. Bad memories from the Steelers thanksgiving game are still being re-lived, I guess, with my sub-conscience seeking redemption on thanksgiving. :) 

 

That is pretty late in the year for a Thursday night game, IMO, when they should be scheduling division opponents.

That's a solid schedule. No complaints. 

All the experts say we have an easy schedule this year I don't see anything easy about that schedule.

They can't and shouldn't start slow this year. They put maybe the two easiest games on their schedule in the first three weeks with a home gsme vs the Cards sandwiched in between.  Not unrealistic to think the Colts could start 3-0.  Then the 49ers two weeks later.  The goal should be 4-1 out of the gate.

    •   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.
