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”.

    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....  
    • I missed the first couple innings, was keeping track on phone, didn’t realize things got chippy with the benches clearing after the Contreras HR! Seems the Cubs were playing with a little extra edge tonight, I love it!!! 
    • and then NE goes into KC and throws for 350 and Sony runs for 100+ on them. our O, and O game plan just sucked.   i get KC was good, but our O just sucked.
