id say the schedule was moderate last year.  we played and lost to both previous super bowl teams, plus the division was decent and we split with two of them.   we also played some of the worst teams in the league 

 

Oh I agree. It was just a talking point, especially in the media, and there was some truth to it.

 

I’ll also go ahead and say that just because this schedule looks rough now, it doesn’t necessarily mean the teams that were good last year are going to be nearly as tough this year. But, it looks promising to be a good test :)

If we make the playoffs we will be so tested. If we manage home field we will be winning a SB with that tough schedule.

That's gonna be a tough opener

Chargers have made a habit of starting slowly.

No home primetime games for us? That's seriously messed up

Our home schedule is pretty weak. The Houston game would be the only one that might deserve prime time and they our that on TNF.

Tickets wise I'm assuming you're asking?? You can definitely get a pair for less than a 100$ usually, if you aren't picky that is.

Colts have a bye in week 6.

 

Yuk!    Looking for the emoji for throwing up in my own mouth!   

 

We've been mostly fortunate about the bye week since Luck came to Indy.   Still,  this is disappointing....    sigh....

 

Oh well...

Went to the opener against the rams 2 yrs ago. Tickets on the colts side ranged from $60-500 but stadium is 3 times larger then chargers. Cost me $1000 for 4 tickets 6 rows from sideline on 30 yard line. Right where tolzien threw his first interception returned for touchdown.....................

Also worth noting.....

 

The Colts open on the road.....

 

And the Colts also close on the road.

 

That's the first time that's happened in the Luck-era.    Typically your home for one or the other.   But you're typically not on the road for both.

It's the NFL and the TV Networks.    And it's because our best games are on the road this year.   That's the way it worked out.

 

It's not dumb at all....

Planning a holiday in Canada (from New Zealand) in September. Was eyeing up the LA game. Was hoping for week 3 or 4 though! This should be interesting...

It’s incredibly dumb. We were one of if not the hottest team last season, with the comeback player of the year, defensive rookie of the year and a potential MVP QB. I’m aware KC is NE are THE teams right now, but it’s dumb. We should have got at least one home prime time game.

Deion just said the Colts game is winnable for the Chargers on the NFL Network. I like Prime Time but I'm convinced he hates the Colts.

That’s all well and good, but that’s a fans point of view....   fans for all 32 teams have complaints on this day...

 

If this is our biggest complaint then the reaction, aside from the fan base, is a big yawn.    Nobody else cares.

There’s two ways to look at this.

 

1) we got acrewed

or

2) IF we win out at home, big IF, we only need to win 2-3 of the away games to win the division and make playoffs.

It is winnable though. The Chargers are a good football team. I could easily see the Colts losing.

I'm not going to say anything about who the Colts play when, because who knows which teams may be good or bad.  But I will say the schedule makers did not do the Colts any favors.

 

- All three prime time games are away

- 3 of 5 games to open the season are away

- 3 of 4 games to end the season are away

 

It's not as bad as 2005 or 2006  when the Colts had 4 games in an 18 day span but it's it's not favorable.

Sorry...   I’m not sure I’m following or understanding your meaning...

 

I don’t think we got screwed.   

 

I think we’ll likely win 7 home games.  And I think we’ll win 3-4 road games. Maybe more, but I wouldn’t count on that.    I think the Colts typically do pretty well on the road.

 

I’m not wild about our schedule, but I don’t hate it....  and I don’t think the NFL is messing with us.

he does not like the colts, but the chargers could certainly win that.  deion really does hold a grudge over being stopped by a punter, his co hosts still give him crap about it on his show haha

At least we'll know if we're getting better or are paper tigers is how I'm looking at it. They'll definitely be battle tested if they make it to January.

 

Better get that run game up guys. 

 

Will be fun, can't wait...

I’m talking about people upset with the lack of prime time games or the brutal road games when I said “getting screwed”.

    • Like always, injuries will help shape the final roster.....   Unfortunately.....
    • One thing is for certain this year (on paper so far) we are going to either lose a talent on WR, RB or TE depending on what direction they lean on. If we keep only 5 wr’s thinking that Hines is interchangeable, we lose out on either Fountain, Pascal, Johnson or Rogers. If we think keep 6 WR’s, we sacrifice that by going 3 rb’s and give up on Ware, Williams or Wilkins. And at TE, you risk a cut to either Cox, Travis or Hetges.    Now some of these guys could make it to the PS but not all of them. Highly unlikely we would run with 2 TE’s but if they view DF in a split type WR/TE role, anything is possible. Could either Williams or Wilkins make it to our PS, idk. Every time Wilkins runs the ball, he gets 5 yards it seems, you would have to think another teams seriously takes a look at that option and we all know how much praise CB has poured out on Williams RB abilities. As for the WR’s no way around it, we are going to lose a talent from this pool. Johnson, Pascal, Ishmail, Fountain, Hogan or Rogers, all of these have a talent ability to make several teams rosters and be an upgrade to several teams. DF better ball out at a 13 million product for us risking losing one of these young talents or some fans will never like DF regardless of what he does if he is just average and then off the team after this season. He would essentially become the teams flogging project if he isn’t a star imho. 
    • Watery eyes, runny nose, difficulty breathing... I must be allergic to reading stories like this...   Faith in humanity restored!  
    • It depends on how many out of the current group they feel they can safely keep on the practice squad. I think 4 is kind of crazy, but when you look at keeping a plethora of tight ends and maybe an extra runningback on active roster, you start factoring Ebron and Hines in as receivers more than tight end and runningback, as we will likely see those two split out more than in a traditional role. That's the beauty of versatility. 
    • I'm pretty sure it's also 12 teams.  You will have to contact Colt92 about it.  I don't think the draft time has been set yet.     Typically if I remember right the drafts usually happen on labor day weekend.
