NFL Releases 2013 Schedule Thursday Night....


Recommended Posts

Primetime games for Luck: At San Fran, vs Denver, Thursday Night football vs Jags/Titans, Possible 4th vs Texans but I doubt it because Texans get to play Denver, NE and Ravens, so one or two of those will be primetime for Texans, IMO.

 

Primetime games for Peyton: At NYG, At Foxboro, Home vs Ravens, At Indy, Thanksgiving At Cowboys

 

Primetime games for Brady: vs Denver, vs Ravens, at Pittsburgh (Steelers hope that is not the case because Steelers have lately stunk on SNF both vs Brady and Brees and barely squeaked by Kerry Collins/Curtis Painter, so Steelers fans probably hope it is a 4:15 game), at New Orleans, at Texans

 

At least, that is what I predict :).

TK;

 

Seattle hasn't done enough to worry about....

 

But the 49ers are another story entirely....that's a prime time game...

seattle is more dangerous than 49ers they have harvin now and he tore us up last year. Plus if our run d isn't right lync will have a green like performance

I know the OP is about the schedule coming out on Thursday, but that got me thinking about the Thursday night games specifically, because I just had a conversation a day or so ago with a buddy about Indy's Thursday night history,

since 2007 Indy is 6-0 on Thurday night games, (the only team undefeated since the recent inclusion of Thursday night games) sort of a cool stat...

anyways since 2008 all of Indys Thursday night games have been divisional games...

& since 2009 Colts have played all three division rivals, so if the schedule keeps that rotation, it would mean the Colts play Tenn on Thursday night this year...

Hopefully the Colts keep the Thursday night streak going & make it 7-0

anyways...

just bored thought I'd look up some random stuff...

Are all Thursday night games Divisional games??? Thought I heard that somewhere & that they are basically on a rotation, meaning Colts would be up to play TN on a thursday this year, anyone know if there is a formula to Thursday night games...

 

 

I don't think all of them are divisional games. Bengals played Eagles last year and Steelers played Titans as well on Thursday night football last year.

 

I do know that a team cannot play 2 Thursday night games in a given season year. So, if the Cowboys and Lions play on thanksgiving, them or their opponents cannot play a 2nd Thursday night game in the year.

My guess is that the schedule will actually start leaking out tomorrow morning-noon. The NFL is not very good at keeping the schedule a secret, all the way until the schedule show. I believe we will start seeing the schedule leak in less than 24 hours.

My 2 predictions, both of which I hope I'm wrong.

  1. we will open on the road.  The only 2 times we had a home opener is when the Colts won the SB and when the opened LOS.
  2. We will play Peyton October 12th, when I will be in of all places...Denver.

Also this has nothing to do with the release tonight, but for the first time since the AFL days this is the first year we will not play the Patriots.  Maybe in the playoffs in Jan 2014.

ND - we didn't play the Pats in 2002, the 1st year of the current realignment.

 

I posted my prediction a few weeks back.  This allows for a fast start, tough mid-season stretch, and a strong finish with the last seven games.  This would be a great schedule.  Enjoy!

Oops, I stand corrected.  I forgot how bad the Colts were in 2001, (PL-PL-PL-PLAYOFFS!)  6and10

 

How about this edit:

Also this has nothing to do with the release tonight, but for the first time since the AFL days 2003, this is the first year we will not play the Patriots. 

 

I like your scedule, but think there will be a few more 4 pm games and we will probably end the season against the Texans.

    • I fail to understand why Alex Leatherwood is not been talked about more as the LT.  IMO, he is the obvious choice for our pick at 21.  A perfect match of need and value, IMO.   A couple of other thoughts.    Radunz has short arms and smallish hands for a LT, and at just over 300 pounds, he would seem to be physically overmatched against NFL talent.  He may have the technique and tenacity, but I would rather start with a guy who wasn't physically challenged.   As a pure pocket passer, Mac Jones is too short at 6.2.5...only 5/8 inch taller than the "short" Jake Fromme from last year, and he's noticeably skinnier.  Pass.  Too bad, I liked him, but the measurables just aren't there. 
    • If this is true, as well as the idea that Ballard helped to push Rivers out, then there is some careful study of the salary cap issue going on and Ballard not wanting to overspend.  Not that you don't keep an eye on the wallet anyway, but these two moves, if true, free up space to assume a big existing contract like a Stafford, Wentz, or even Ryan; or to go get a player like Allen Robinson or Godwin.
    • That's because Adams was mad from the play before and probably chirped at Rodgers. It was still a good pass for Adams, he just didnt get his feet down..and he couldve. Lazard was wide open tho.
    • His list last year was reasonably close on where players were drafted.   A good place to start knowing these names.  Thanks!   Ballard has targeted many players that perform well in the senior bowl; I expect it to be even more important this year considering there will be no combine.  
    • I have to imagine that the Colts’ offer and TY’s asking price simply don’t meet.  It happens all the time with vets.
