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'm just linking what was reported.  I don't know what race has to do with this situation, or my comments.  I think the lens you are responsible for needs adjustment.    I don't confuse race with culture, or use the terms interchangeably.  Maybe that's how you read things.  Maybe that's how moderators read things, then attribute banned topics to someone who isn't even talking about them.   "They all", the ex....EX players who complain about culture, whatever they're talking about, amount to about 5 high profile players over the past 5 years, all of whom were either cut or not resigned.  Not sure why they are held up as the pedestal of defining what HOU is or is not.   What do the current 90 players on the team feel about the culture?  How about Tyrod, who just joined the team?  About 150 players have churned through the HOU roster in that time.  Many of them financially independent millionaires, free to say what they want. 150 to 5 have not complain about culture.  IMO, maybe the 5 need new lenses.   Its clearly reported what Watson's issue is with the team, and it started a month after he signed a new contract with a "bad" organization and just as the search for a new HC began.  
    • 2017: Good: Garett Bolles  Worst: Solomon Thomas Colts: Malik Hooker Late: Eddie Jackson/George Kittle   2018: Good: Darius Leonard Worst - Josh Jackson? Colts Darius Leonard, Quenton Nelson,  Late - Fred Warner?    2019: Good - DK Metcalf  Worst - Jerry Tillery Colts - Parris Campbell Late - Chauncey Gardner-Johnson   2020 Good - Tristan Wirfs Worst - Jordan Love(too early?) Colts - Michael Pittman Jr Late - Alex Highsmith?
    • IDK man. I watched every game last year, and several twice. TY simply isn't get a lot of separation (unless he's running in the seam). Compare the other WRs to TY. Here's all the pass catchers from 2020, and I included TY's from 2019 too.   TY20 - 1.26 TY19 - 1.5 PC20 - 2.11 MP20 - 1.58 ZP20 - 1.16 MJ20 - 1.64 DH20 - 1.4 JD20 - 1.2 MAC20 - 1.57 TB20 - 1.11   It looks pretty much like my eyes thought across the board. Looking at River's advanced stats,.... River's "on target" and "bad throw" %s weren't bad. Both Brady and Mahomes had higher bad throw %s than Rivers. Along with my eyes, there just really isn't a stat out there that supports placing the blame on Rivers (over TY).
    • I’m excited for his connection with Big Mo. Similar to Luck Wentz loves his TEs and hopefully he gets more involved on offense.
