Please tell me how he is wrong?

No, it is certainly winnable for each side, but you just knew he would pick the Chargers.

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

 

 

Well...   to be fair...   or more precise...

 

I think fans fans here are complaining that all three of our Prime Time games are on the road.   Not that we have too few.   Different issue.   They’d prefer one of those games was a home game.

 

I get that.   

 

To me,  it’s more of a fluke.   A quirk of the schedule.   I’m not reading anymore into it than that.

So true. We all have debated this topic same place same time for years :D.

 

We've seen 'favorable' schedules kill us and have had 'brutal' schedules that didn't end up to bad.

 

Let's just hope the road doesn't run through NE like usual.

Actually, I hope it does. I honestly think if we’d gotten the Chiefs last year, we’d given NE a fight in the AFCCG.   I really want Luck to beat Brady once in his career

I like the way our tough games are spaced out. The way our schedule is lined up we may lose on opening day again because playing at LAC won't be easy. I can still see a 3-1 start and winning at Tennessee, beating the Falcons here, and beating the Raiders here. Then game 5 is a huge one at KC.

Dang we thought the colts schedule was brutal. Oakland has 6 games without a home game too.

I hear ya man. I've honestly got 'battered team syndrome' with them in the Luck era. It's been ugly so my mind wants to avoid NE, but I agree I'd love nothing more than Luck beating him/them.

I am fine with our schedule. I would've preferred an easier opponent on opening day because I am sick of losing on opening day but who knows we may still be able to win at LAC. They will be favored in that game though.

All we really gotta do is win one of the two opening road games.  then it's 6 out 8 games at home, with three sets of back to back home games.  I'll take that.

 

REGULAR SEASON
9/8 @ Los Angeles Chargers 4:05 p.m.  possible Loss
9/15 @ Tennessee Titans 1 p.m.  Win
9/22 vs. Atlanta Falcons 1 p.m.  Win
9/29 vs. Oakland Raiders 1 p.m.  Win
10/6 @ Kansas City Chiefs 8:20 p.m. (WTHR)  Loss
BYE
10/20 vs. Houston Texans 1 p.m.  possible Win (maybe)
10/27 vs. Denver Broncos 4:25 p.m.  Win
11/3 @ Pittsburgh Steelers 1 p.m.  probable Loss
11/10 vs. Miami Dolphins 4:05 p.m.  Win
11/17 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars 1 p.m.  Win

11/21 (Thurs.) @ Houston Texans 8:20 p.m.  possible Win (maybe)
12/1 vs. Tennessee Titans 1 p.m.  Win
12/8 @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers 1 p.m.  Win
12/16 (Mon.) @ New Orleans Saints 8:15 p.m.  Loss
12/22 vs. Carolina Panthers 1 p.m.  Win
12/29 @ Jacksonville Jaguars 1 p.m.  possible Win

 

It's all gonna come down to those two Houston games, I think.

I'm not usually a super rosy fan so I admit that up front, but I'd be surprised if we end up winning 12+ games. Honestly, I'd be happy with 10 wins and ecstatic with 11.

When the schedule sinks in more after the excitement of seeing it for the first time... It's definitely possible to see an early jump to a good start..

 

9/8 @ Los Angeles Chargers, no juggernaut, definitely beatable.
9/15 @ Tennessee Titans 1 p.m.  same
9/22 vs. Atlanta Falcons 1 p.m.  same
9/29 vs. Oakland Raiders 1 p.m.  same

 

No world beaters early, then KC followed by 4 of 5 at home.

 

Can't wait.

This team should be at least 4-1 or 5-0 coming out going into the bye. If Tyreek Hill is suspended, that Chiefs game won’t be as difficult as we think.

4 of 6 on the road down the stretch is gonna be tough. If we are truly a playoff contender... shouldn't be a big deal. Gotta win on the road.

That 2nd HOU game is gonna be a tough one. On the Road, on a short week? Might be the toughest game on the schedule for us.

The fans say "we are in great shape. Ballard will smash the Draft again. Luck is elite. We will win the Super Bowl. Etc."

 

The schedule comes out: "aaaahhhh, we are doomed. It's fixed. Schedule from hell. Chicken Little, Chicken Little......aaaaaahhhhhh.

 

Fans, eh.

I think we will be ok. Everyone will have their opinion of how they like the draft. Assuming I like the draft, I think our ceiling is 12 wins if Luck stays healthy. We could also be a team that only wins 10 but still be a better team than last year. As an early pre-draft prediction I have us going 11-5.  SB expectations should be expected but if we lost in the Divisional Round again it wouldn't shock me either. Once you get that far anything can happen. I think underachieving would be missing the playoffs all together.

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.

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.....................

 

Thanks for the info guys. I bought two tickets for 330. Section 131 row B. Good seats?

We knew the schedule would be tougher this season.  

All in all, the way it was set up isn't too bad.  I like the bye week.   I like the middle of the schedule with so many home games.  

I think 10-6 is probable and 11-5 is possible.

Can someone tell me how much typically opening day costs? I wanted to go to the chargers game, but im worried its gonna be too expensive now

 

Even though it's LA, it probably won't be too much. They've gotten better, but usually the stadium is relatively empty for the Chargers

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

I LOVE how all of our prime time games are on the road. 

 

Whos stupid decision was this?

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....

 

 

Let's face it folks.  The NFL 'showcases' teams.  They also have to cater to the networks, just as NCF says.  This says Indy is on a 1 year 'prove it' deal like teams do with some players.

 

It's the same thing for the NFL every year.  Their goal is balance.  Because they admit (Mike North) that 'they can create really good TV schedule that's not such a great team schedule, or make a very fair team schedules that's not going to be their best television'. So balance where everyone complains, but only a little, and hopefully somewhat equally.

 

http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-schedule-release/0ap3000001026920/What-goes-into-making-NFL-schedule-Mike-North-breaks-it-down

 

If Colts were a big draw (more than other powerhouse teams) and / or a huge market, they would have more prime time home games.  If the Colts ace the test this year and go far (or all the way), they'll get rewarded with better/more next year.  It's how it works.

We still have 8 home games and 8 road games.  And it doesn't matter to me whether our road games are the only prime time games or not.  Regardless of what time, what place, or how it is televised we need to be ready to win. 

 

Each games counts the same on the record.

Last time we played there wasn't fun lol. No Tolzien this time at least...

 

Nevermind that was LAR...

 

That opening not really doing much for me...

Wife and I were at that game and we both were yelling the whole time to bench Tolzien for Brissett.  By the time Pagano put Brissett in the score was lopsided.   The game against the Chargers should be an interesting one with Luck and Rivers dueling it out.  Can't wait to buy our tickets.

 

This will be a playoff scenario.  Rest of the family are Chargers fans so it would be nice to win that one.

I'm shocked so many of us think we are actually going to lose to the steelers.  Can it happen?  Yes of course, but no way do I think we are going to lose to them.  They are not good. They just lost brown.  They will not be good,  and we will not lose to them..  Hopefully..

You seem too confident.   The Steelers have a knack for putting good quality teams on the field nearly every year.  Brown could end up being an addition by subtraction thing.  

They also have a lot of draft picks.    I haven't researched these signings, but it doesn't appear that this is the same team minus AB.    Moncrief and Schuster are a pretty good WR duo.

    • You can do both 3 & 6 and 3 & 4... some of the choices aren't mutually exclusive.  
    • Honestly I don't know but I just wish the Colts could somehow come together and shock us for this Monday night game and get a W against the Saints.   Small chance of it happening but it's the NFL so you never know .
    • He’ll be remembered that way by you others who think that.   But not by others who don’t see it that way, at all. And there are plenty of people who don’t see it that way.   
    • I think you play the regulars. If guys are hurt maybe you don't push it and play them like you would if you are in the playoff mix.   I know JMV has suggested playing Chad Kelly but I probably wouldn't. I see him as the back-up at best over Brian Hoyer going forward. Maybe you want to play him to evaluate that possibility but the Colts likely have a good idea on this already.   Whether it's Jacoby or Chad Kelly I don't think either one will change how the Colts move forward at the quarterback position.   I believe Jacoby is due a signing bonus before free agency begins that will essentially lock him onto the roster for 2020. I expect the Colts to pick that up. Jacoby will be the starter again in 2020. The Colts will try and improve the receiver group and hope to be healthier next year.   They probably want to upgrade that position if the right player is available in the draft and if he is they take him and he is the backup next year to Jacoby.    There really isn't a lot of young guys not playing already. With so many injuries, especially on offense, they have to play who is healthy and don't have much of a choice who to play in some cases. 
    • You mean the TY who called out his whole offensive line after Jacoby got sacked 10 times against Jacksonville in 2017?  Every now and then TY will go there....
