Entire afc south starts 0-1

Recommended Posts

If you look at the schedule the entire afc south is playing very difficult games and are all underdogs. Jax vs k.c.  Tennessee at Cleveland . Houston at New Orleans.  Colts at San Diego.   So  if the colts lose its not the end of the world.

it's another reason i don't have a problem with Luck not playing on the road his first game vs a very tough DL. that is, if he truly needs the time to get better.

I don't know what's more sad, the fact the entire division are underdogs or the fact that the Titans are underdogs to the Browns O.o

I'd say all 4 games going that way is unlikely, don't disagree that all 4 are most likely underdogs though.

When has it been end of the world? It would suck to lose game 1, but game 1 has no indication on how the season plays out.

On the flip side... If the Colts win and the others get beat, the Colts will be the early division leader at 1-0. Then 15 more games to write the whole story.

Forum doctrine is that we shalt lose the opening game.

That is why it’s highly unlikely we get a bye week if we make the playoffs. Teams like the browns and patriots have very easy schedules. I think KC has a pretty tough schedule also.

If we don't get pass happy vs the Chargers, we won't be playing into their strengths in pass defense, and can come away with a win IF Luck plays QB.

 

If Brissett plays in game 1 as starter, not so sure. I don't think we have made the playoffs in any year Luck has missed a game. 

 

A lot of times, things play out on the field much different than they do on paper.

The best laid preseason strength of schedules go out the window when the first bullet is fired.

I like to think that the Colts will win in a blowout & the other 3 teams will get curbstomped.

This is our chance to finally get the division lead early. The Chargers have some key injuries and assuming Luck does play, we can steal one out there.

I hope the entire NFL goes 8-8 this season so no one has their feelings hurt.

The Bucs beat the Saints week 1 last year. Upsets happen literally all the time in week 1. Even if all 4 AFCS teams are underdogs, I wouldn't bet all four of em to lose. 

Also, and this is just me, but every year there's an incredibly talented team (or teams) that dissapoint the following year. My prediction is LAC and NO are those teams.

Hmmm, the Colts might have the easiest game of the four...

The colts have caught some breaks their first two games. The chargers with injuries and a holdout and the titans without Lewan. Both these games look winnable on paper.

    • Glad what we’ve been seeing for years is finally being brought to the forefront, especially since not all QBs benefited from the special treatment. Luck used to get constantly  murdered back there and barely ever got the officials “protection.”   Brady said too many flags...  
    • I expect  Brissett  to be much better eventually.  Luck was brought  along just as slow the beginning  of last year and every one was like where are the deep balls? Eventually  Cain, Campbell,  or Roger's will get more involved  with offense.   
    • To me, we would know his progression, not ceiling. I’ll bet the playbook is still not fully installed yet, nor fully grasped by all of the player.  Some are further along than others as well.  I believe we can thank the CBA (with its very much reduced coach/player/team activities in the off season) at least in part for the less than stellar offensive creativity and brilliance in execution.   JB is a Works In Progress. I don’t feel that 4 weeks will determine his final destination. Unless, he really isn’t going to be more than average.  I’m watching the full year.  That should be a good indicator for what the team should plan to do next off season/training camp,
    • For a second, based on the link title, I thought that someone pulled an Aaron Hernandez.
    • Yep.   And nothing you’re going to type will move me from that position.   I appreciate what he did when was here. But that appreciation is only for what he did prior to his little show this year.
