2013 Season Strength of Schedule


Recommended Posts

The schedule is harder than it appears. I guarantee you that if we discount the Jaguar games (which will be harder because they are division opponents) then that schedule probably shoots up to the top 10.

The chiefs and raiders along with the titans twice also helps. But there are some really strong teams on the schedule

Good stuff, Barry....

....we were 4-2 vs. the Division again...and we cab be 5-1 next year

..we can do 10-6 overall with that slate...

..the 'strength' thing will change with the draft and free agent movement..

I agree, looks very good for the Colts!  I was looking at the teams we play next season and there are about 13-14 very winnable games, the 2 that seem less likely being home vs the broncos and on the road vs the 49ers.

I wouldn't necessarily say the Seahawk's and the Bengals are easy. plus we struggle against KC alot it seems like.

I don't read too much into the strength of schedule at this time of year. Its tough to predict how good a team will be 9 months from now. They may have been 2-14 this year but just like us they could be 11-5 next year.
 

This.

Judging next year's won/loss record based off this year's strength of schedule is, well, it just doen't make any sense. I am sure that most fans of other teams looked at the 2012 Colts and assumed win largely because of their 2-14 record. Just as I am also safe in assuming that several teams were expected to be good that turned out to be bad or mediocre at best - like the Saints and Lions.

AFC West & AFC South divisions being the overall weakest divisions & playing each other this upcoming season sorta lumps those teams together as having "easy" schedules...

 

This.

 

 

Although at least Houston/Indy did their jobs last year!!!

    • I would hope not. Especially, if your drafting folks in the 1st and 2nd Rd. I expect most 1st Rd players to contribute as rookies. 2nd Rd picks, should be starting or heavily contributing by year two IMO. You don’t draft guys in the 1st or 2nd rounds, that take 3-4 years to develop. If, they take that long, call it what it is, a bad pick.     
    • Here's where things stand, 9 days before the draft. Updates since my 3/26 post are bolded: (dollars rounded a bit)   Unrestricted free agents signed from other teams DE Isaac Rochell (former Charger) OT Sam Tevi (former Charger) OT Julién Davenport (former Dolphin) G Chris Reed (former Panther)   Colts unrestricted free agents re-signed RB Marlon Mack (1-yr, $2M) CB Xavier Rhodes (1-yr, $6.5M) WR T.Y.

    • But in what is called a weak DE draft class, how much if any will a 1st or especially a 2nd round pick improve the DE group??
