  1. With our 7-3 record in the 2020 season, we have now equaled our win total for the entire 2019 season. We were done in by our kicking game in several of those losses in 2019, otherwise 10-6 would have been attainable. Solid special teams play, along with other aspects of this year's team, has made all the difference. I've also noticed that our margin for error is much greater this year than in 2019 because we now have a more complete team. Let's keep it up!
  2. I tweaked the order based on the format from schedule leaks. If the week one leaked game is correct, I guessed the right opponent for MNF, just the wrong month. Expected format for 2020 schedule: Week 1-4: Out-of-Conference games Week 5-6: Equal-place Conference games Week 7-10: Divisional games/Bye weeks Week 11-14: Inter-conference games Week 15-17: Divisional games 9/14/20 Packers (ESPN) 8:15pm 9/20/20 at Lions (CBS) 1pm 9/27/20 at Bears (CBS) 1pm 10/4/20 Vikings (FOX) 1pm 10/11/20 at Raiders (CBS) 4:05pm 10/18/20
  3. Here is my annual prediction - I've included 3 prime time games. We haven't ended the season at Houston since 2003 and have never done it since the NFL started scheduling divisional finales in 2010 - we are overdue. 9/13/20 Jets (CBS) 1pm 9/20/20 at Jags (CBS) 1pm 9/27/20 at Lions (CBS) 1pm 10/4/20 Bengals (CBS) 1pm 10/11/20 at Steelers (CBS) 4:25pm 10/18/20 Vikings (FOX) 1pm 10/26/20 Packers (ESPN) 8:15pm 11/1/20 BYE 11/8/20 at Titans (CBS) 1pm 11/15/20 at Bears (CBS) 1pm 11/22/20 Texans (CBS) 1pm 11/29/20 at Browns (CBS) 1pm
  4. Some corrections: Game 2 was a win (would have been 21-17 instead of 19-17) Game 8 was a win as another posted stated (score would have been 16-13 as we would have run out the clock) - Jacoby's incredible throw to TY from the end zone would have iced the game. Game 10 could have been tied 16-16 at regulation as we were in the Dolphin red zone on 4th down and would have attempted a game tying FG. OT may or may not have resulted in a win. Game 13 could have been a 26-24 Indy win as the blocked FG TD by Tenn never would have happened. However, mak
  5. This. ^ Furthermore, when Luck retired in August, if someone told us we would end up going 10-6 and not lose any games by more than 7 points, I think we would be thrilled. We quickly forget how often this team was blown out during the Pagano/Grigson era. The truth is that the fan base is going through withdrawal pains. The addiction was having an elite QB for 20 years. It got us one Super Bowl title. Einstein stated that insanity was born from doing the same thing over again and expecting different results. Lofty offensive stats by Colt players won ma
  6. If we are 8-4 and Hou is 6-6 and we beat Tampa to go 9-4, then Hou still needs to lose one more game for us to clinch because Hou could win its last 4 to go 10-6 and we could lose the last 3 to go 9-7. If we win at Hou and Tenn takes care of Jax, then the AFC South title essentially becomes a two team race between the Colts & Titans. Tenn & Hou haven't even played each other yet so whoever can sweep that series will still have an outside shot of getting the 2nd wild card spot.
  7. I'm not in favor of an 18 game season, but if you are going to do it, then at least keep the schedule balanced. Similar to divisional opponents, do both home and away games against the opponents that were determined by your finish within the division. This would account for the two additional games. For example, an 18 game season in 2019 would have the Colts playing the Dolphins and Steelers twice just like divisional games.
  8. If the link below is true, then by process of elimination, the Colts either host the Falcons week 1 or play at the Chargers for a 4:05pm game. FOX has the doubleheader game at 4:25pm. Unless they flex Colts at Chargers to FOX for the other 4:25pm game. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/2019-nfl-schedule-release-live-updates-leaks-thanksgiving-matchups-tnf-and-mnf-games/
  9. Good call. With the schedule release next week, I wouldn't be surprised at all if the NFL has us open the season at KC for game one of ESPN's Monday Night doubleheader. 1) Rematch of January's divisional playoff game 2) Ballard's KC connection 3) Justin Houston going against his former team
  10. Each year on the Colts forum, I predict the schedule for fun. I usually try and create a schedule that is very favorable in terms of when the games are played (i.e fast starts and strong finishes). The actual schedule release will probably occur on April 16th, 17th, or 18th. It's the week before the draft.
  11. With the over/under having us at 9.5 wins, I copied and pasted this from my post in December. Many times it is not just who you play, but when you play them. This schedule should allow us to get off to a strong start and then get 3 of the final 4 at home against the division. With a possible 5-1 start in our sights, I'll take the over. 9/8 @ Jax 1pm (CBS) 9/15 MIA 1pm (CBS) 9/22 OAK 1pm (CBS) 9/29 @ Hou 8:20pm (NBC) 10/6 DEN 1pm (CBS) 10/13 @ Ten 1pm (CBS) 10/20 @ Pit 4:25pm (CBS) 10/27 ATL 1pm (FOX) 11/4 @ San Diego 8:20pm (ESPN) 11
  12. The order of the opponents can make it more manageable. I came up with this mock schedule for 2019. 9/8 @ Jax 1pm (CBS) 9/15 MIA 1pm (CBS) 9/22 OAK 1pm (CBS) 9/29 @ Hou 8:20pm (NBC) 10/6 DEN 1pm (CBS) 10/13 @ Ten 1pm (CBS) 10/20 @ Pit 4:25pm (CBS) 10/27 ATL 1pm (FOX) 11/4 @ San Diego 8:20pm (ESPN) 11/10 BYE WEEK 11/17 @ NO 8:20pm (NBC) 11/24 CAR 1pm (FOX) 12/1 @ Tampa Bay 1pm (CBS) 12/5 TEN 8:20pm (NFLN/FOX) 12/15 HOU 1pm (CBS) 12/22 @ KC 4:25pm (CBS) 12/29 JAX 1pm (CBS) This would allo
  13. If the Colts and Texans end up at 10-6 (with the Texans beating the Jags week 17), then the Colts and Texans will both have a 4-2 division record. The next tiebreaker is common opponents. Indy will win the division based on a better record against common opponents (9-5 vs 8-6). Starting with the 2002 realignment and balanced schedule, the common opponent tiebreaker is ranked above the conference record when breaking ties within a division. For teams in the same division, there are 14 games with common opponents vs 12 conference games.
  14. I don't often post on this forum anymore, but when I do, I give props to someone who clearly "gets it". Thank you, and above all, stay thirsty my Colt fan friend.
  15. I don't often read message boards, but when I do, I get my rumors, innuendos, and entertainment from the Colts forum. Stay thirsty Colt fans.
