Lost 6 straight week 1 games 

Lets come out rocking home or away 

Then they need to play the starters more than 6 to 8 plays during the pre season. The Colts haven’t been ready to play once the regular season starts.

If we start off with the Packers that won't be easy at all. We will be underdogs actually. I am sick of losing on opening day as well. I hope we get the Lions or Bears lol.

We lost to Lions and Bears in week 1 since 12

Fear no one, start strong, stay strong.  That's the mantra this coaching staff needs to project to this team.  I'm really excited about this team, I think we have enough quality

players in place to bring back the ring.

I realize that Rivers is an improvement on Brisset, but surely suggesting he makes us a SB team is  a bit over the top

My guess would be CHI. I think GB is headed to SF for the TNF kickoff game...as a rematch of last year’s NFC championship.

Been a long time. Did Andrew win any openers?


Against OAK in 2013. Terrell Pryor ran all over the Colts that game. Pryor had the Raiders 1st and goal from the 8 down 4 with a little over a minute left...but then Mathis had a huge sack for a 16 yard loss...and Bethea intercepted the 3rd and long pass in the EZ.

Bears are my guess. Short travel distance...and there are some good storylines there (Foles against Reich, Ballard’s old team, etc.). 
 

GB is going to be playing in one of the prime time spots against another highly rated team I would think.

Packers and Vikings are home games so at least the two harder opponents are a little easier. I kinda think GB is overrated and didn’t belong in the NFC title game. They also did nothing to improve this year. I would be okay playing them opening weekend and it would be cool to open on Monday night.

Word is that it will be a Monday night game against the Packers.  Tough draw for the Colts.  Rodgers is good on Monday nights.   Also will be Rivers first real game in a new offense with rookies Taylor and Pittman.  We can assume preseason will be very limited.  

 

Rodgers has thrown for 300-plus yards and achieved a passer rating of at least 100 in four consecutive Monday night starts (all Packers wins). That's the longest streak in the history of the ''Monday Night Football'' franchise.

In those four games, Rodgers has completed 66.0 percent of his passes, averaged 349.5 passing yards, and thrown 12 touchdowns against zero interceptions for a 120.1 passer rating.

Plus. If they do start on time, there is a strong chance the crowd will be non existent or limited thus eliminating home field advantage.

Good point.  

Of course the game could go either way, I'd put my money on the Packers.   But I wouldn't bet on or against the Colts with real money.

IMO Rivers has just as many offensive weapons as does Rogers and I think out defense will be better than theirs.

Let's start out positive. :thmup:

That is true, but Rodgers is experienced and comfortable with his team where Rivers, even though he has some familiarity with Reichs offense, he will be new and so will Pittman and Taylor.  I think if they have a full training camp and preseason it may be a non issue, but I don't see that happening.   

But it could still go either way.

    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
    • Nothing against you and I like you as a poster but counting Ballard's 2017 season is a stretch. I realize he was the GM that year (1st year) but he didn't have the Coach he wanted and Luck was out for the year. We went 4-12 that year so his record is a bit skewed because of that. Others have posted the same thing about Ballard's record so you are not the only one and I just don't see how anyone can count that season legitimately. I pretty much go by 2018-this year when he hired Frank and his record would be 25-19 counting the playoffs. Is he the best GM in the league, probably not but he is good. He is responsible for drafting Nelson, Leonard, Mack, signing Houston, signing Rivers and trading for Buckner = great work there. Luck just retiring on the team and McDaniels dissing him even made his job that much harder. 
    • I am late to the party but it doesn't matter because I would've been 1-1 anyway. I had the Lions and Washington so it offsets     Here are my Sunday picks/Monday pick: Ravens 17 Steelers 24 Chargers 19 Bills 27 Titans 27 Colts 30 Panthers 20 Vikings 21 Browns 27 Jags 17 Giants 24 Bengals 10 Cards 27 Pats 23 Dolphins 99 Jets 0 (Fluke's original quote) Saints 24 Broncos 13 49ers 17 Rams 30 Chiefs 34 Bucs 24 Bears 17 Packers 27 Seahawks 31 Eagles 17
