Colts Schedule

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

It might even be vacant...

 

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.

    • Barkley is still only a human. Unless we improve our O-line significantly, it doesn't matter who our RB is. With the depth of this RB class, I would be unhappy if they pick Bradley. I still hope they trade down and pick Nelson, who's also "a generational talent". Unless our O-line get fixed, we won't turn things around. Make Norwell the best paid lineman in the league and draft Nelson, and we'll be set for a long time, and Luck won't get killed. Then pick up a good RB prospect in the second round (remember we'll have traded down, and gotten an extra second rounder for certain).
    •   Overall, an excellent post, but I really want to focus on this part. Though even if Barkley didn't have this issue, I still wouldn't take him at #3.. I don't think RB is worth it.   Barkley doesn't hit lanes inside hard, with violence of someone like Gurley who was just savage at it in college. He tries to bounce outside, to an open space, where he is absolutely fantastic so it's understandable. Just as a pure runner, I don't think he's the best RB prospect to come out in recent years. If the hole isn't there inside, he has bad tendency to stop moving his feet. As you said, can it be coached out of him? And why does it happen. Is he little soft? Overcompensating for bad O-line? Or something else that can be coached out of him?   College football is different than NFL and though Barkley obviously had bad OL, the decision making before LOS for RB is crucial imo. That's one thing where prospects can be evaluated equally, no matter what scheme, competition or OL talent they run behind.   So.. Maybe Barkley won't be bell-cow back? But more like Reggie Bush? Reggie Bush didn't become a great runner until later in his career when his athleticism had declined. How soon will it happen with Barkley? However, there is no denying his athleticism and talent as a receiver. So the ideal usage for him might be more similar to how many scatbacks are used.. But he would probably be even bigger mismatch in the passing game and better runner than best scatbacks in the game today (Lewis, White, Riddick etc.). Or just bigger, more athletic and better pure runner than McCaffrey. I'd actually be more willing to use high pick on that kind of player than RB like Gurley, Elliott and Fournette.
    • It's a different situation because they didn't have the quarterback. We (hopefully!) do.   Look at the way the league is trending. It's all about building a defense that can limit the opposition or having a quarterback who can elevate the play of those around him. If you have both them you're basically the Pats.    Between 2011 and 2016 we spent only 5 of a possible 18 high draft picks on defense (with 4 of those being 3rd rounders!!!) and we've basically been swimming again at the tide of the NFL.   I've never seen a fan base so occupied with offense. It's time to look at what the Championship teams are doing and replicate it.
    • Unless they value the top 3 QBs exactly the same it would be stupid to take Saquan 1st overall and be left with 2nd or 3rd choice at QB.
