2019 Colts Schedule Predictions

Recommended Posts

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)

11/10 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)

I want to see what a few of these teams (and us) do in the draft and the rest of FA before making a call.  I think we definitely have a good shot at winning the AFC South, but the AFC West opponents I think are too much of a crapshoot right now.

 

KC has a high-powered offense, but they let a few of their stalwarts on defense go.  Andy Reid, IMO, is too smart to have done that without having a plan or being confident that they've got younger guys who can step up.

 

I think Flacco has some good ball left in him and is a very good fit on that Denver team.  I think they're going to surprise some folks.

 

The Raiders have made some improvements and have 3 first round draft picks in 2019. I'm glad we have them early in the year, as I expect they're going to get better as the season goes on and the younger guys start to gel.  I just hope Burfict doesn't pull any cheap stuff on any of our guys, he was already a dirty player and crazy on the field -- now he's gonna be wearing a Raider uniform, which I doubt will do anything to help him settle down as a player. 

 

Philip Rivers is coming off one of the best years of his career and SD looked pretty good last year.

 

The NFC South doesn't really scare me too much outside of NO, especially because they're going to be hungry coming off that NFC Championship loss.

 

Subject to major change based on what we and other teams do for the rest of the off-season.... but I will say we'll be 11-5 or 12-4 and back atop the AFC South.  I think we'll go 3-1 against the NFC South, 2-2 with the AFC West, 5-1 with the AFC South, beat Miami and toss-up at Pitt.

Not that it means anything, but I could easily see us jump out to 5-0/4-1. Pretty good early season positioning.

 

Should be a fun season compared to the last few years prior to last season. We've got a little winning back in our blood...:D

I have to see the schedule first. I mean could wee start out with 2 tough road games. Are those tough games spread out through out the season. Last year we had 3 home games in a row which saved our season.

It would be like the NFL to give us three national Sunday/Monday games all AWAY.  That would suck.  Is this the schedule or just made up? If it is made up, not understanding how any predictions could be made?

It's a made up schedule. I do not think the actual schedule comes out until mid April.

I can see 11-5 realistically as an early prediction. I see 7-1 at home and 4-4 on the road. The 4 road games we will probably lose are at KC, at SD, at NO, and at Houston. Law of averages says Houston will beat us once next season because we just beat them 2 in a row there. I think we break the Pittsburgh jinx and win there. I have 7-1 at home because we will probably lose a game we shouldn't, it happens every year and most teams do not go 8-0 at home. I can see 5-1 in the division if we win at Jacks, I see us sweeping the Titans, splitting with Houston.

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.

I would love to start out with Tennessee at home, then Oakland at home, then at Tampa. I am sick of getting off to slow starts. If we can start 3-0 we can play more loose at that point.

If we open at home I would rather start with the toughest team. Jump on them before they get into season shape.

If it's an away game hopefully it's a weaker team.

However it works out we have to win the tough ones.

I'll go with 1-6.      It's going to be a tough schedule to get through and I think the AFC South will be improved.

It’s going to be a interesting season with this schedule. We will find out if we are as good as we think or still need major work. If some how we came out with home field through the playoffs we will be Sb abound.

Road schedule is BRUTAL. But the home schedule only has one 2018 playoff team on it. They can geniunely go 8-0. But lets see.

 

I'd say:

HOME:

Wins: Houston, Jags, Falcons, Panthers, Broncos, Dolphins, Raiders

Loss: Tennessee (Think they finally bag one)

 

ROAD:

Wins: Jags, Titans, Chargers, Steelers

Losses: Texans, Chiefs, Saints, Bucs (I have a feeling this year that Bruce and Jamies is gonna work).

 

So 11-5. Most years thats a 3rd seed. At least it should be a home playoff game. If they're lucky it could be a 2 seed.

My only prediction is the NFL will schedule our road game in Tampa on Sunday October 6.  It will be the 16th anniversary, to the very day, of the 38-35 overtime comeback win in 2003.

I see 12-4 as very possible.

 

I think we win 1 of the 4  games against Pitts, NO, KC, and Chargers..... 

We will lose to Jacksonville the final game......

because we are RESTING OUR STARTERS for the playoffs

    • TY won't fetch a ton given his injury history the last two years. He'd absolutely get a contract from a lot of teams, but teams won't be knocking down the door to give up a 1R pick for him right now. And especially with this year's WR class.
    • I've said there are several kinds of leadership..... I can provide a pretty good breakdown of multiple seminars if you'd like, or the key ingredients from a few proven sports "leaders", but you'd just try to pull it apart like above lol and it would be a waste of time.   In short, some lead by performing, some lead by work habits, some lead by taking on a governing type persona (vocal about accountability), plus others, etc. etc.., and many a combination. And there are personality types within those leadership types. Some are just charismatic, some are ballers, some are authoritarians, some are Laissez-faire, and many more.... And there are leaders in every unit or position group.    Not sure what type of leadership JB provides, but we've heard he's vocal. I'd bet he has good work habits too. What we know is in a lot of games, he's not providing leadership by performance, which in sport is just as important. He may be leading by example in some ways in practice and in the locker room, but failing on the field at times. And as you know in sports, respect must be earned, and some players (personality types) don't give it (respect) unless the performance is there. And then there's experience and age....  All those things go together to make a "leader"...    And we all know teams take on identities, and a lot of time that identity comes from one side of the ball or one unit. Ray Lewis was the unquestioned leader and identity of the Ravens for many years and he wasn't a QB.   In terms of all things Colts, doubt the D needs much from him, so lets talk O.... I really doubt the OL needs much of anything from JB. Nelson and AC certainly don't. Nelson has been an alpha his entire life, was early on at ND, and is probably more of an external team O identity than JB currently. I'll take his NJ-esque, sumo looking, Taekwondo doing, A$$-kicking style and identity any day. He's not letting any one in the OL unit slack or go half speed. Doubt the RBs need a lot from JB.   The WRs, they probably need more than anyone. And honestly how do you think they view JB when they are working very hard to get open, are running wide open, yet JB fails to see them or are unwilling to throw it to them? How much respect do you give to a guy who probably preaches "do your job" to everyone, yet makes it hard for them to do their job.   In short, give me a guy that performs. Most successful QBs in college have a level of leadership quality or they wouldn't have done well leading their colleges. And... Those that weren't ideal leaders in college, but still did well (like Kelly), only prove you don't need it to be QB.    And finally, bottom line, right now the whole "leadership" conversation, regardless of importance, is being used as a deflection from talking about his deficiencies, and a reason not to upgrade/improve... 
    • I couldn’t find a video of this and the sound isn’t good. Your going to have to turn it  up. He is saying Love could turn into a better nfl QB then Burrow. I think he is mostly saying it’s because Love will to a better organization. This is exactly why you have to really be careful with QB from really big schools. There is so much talent around them it’s hard to judge just how good they really are.    
    • Yeah okay... My body or any of that has nothing to do with the topic at hand. Now if you would like to get back on topic I’d be gladly to discuss that with you. However let’s me see a picture of you if you want to discuss body fat.
