That schedule is pretty tough. Hopefully we get some favorable scheduling. Also for once can we freaking get some home primetime games.

It would be nice to have a week 1 game in Indy. It's been years.

Over/under 10 wins? 

 

Hmmm...I don't bet on win totals, but looking at the big picture for the OVER:

 

- I think they would need to go 5-1 against the AFCS. Last season, they went 4-2. If not for HOU's implosion, I think 4-2 would have been about right for this upcoming season. But now, 5-1 should be the target to bank a much-needed extra win.

 

- If they go 4-2 again (or worse) against the AFCS, they would then need to go 7-4 (or better) against ARI, LAR, SEA, SF, BUF, NE, TB, BAL, MIA, LV and the NYJ.

 

- That group went 98-78 last year (dragged down by a 2-win NYJ team that will surely be better with Wilson and a new HC).

 

- Last season, their non-division schedule was 81-78 (including that 2-win NYJ team). The Colts did manage a 7-3 record against them. So they would need to replicate that success against a tougher non-division schedule.

 

It's very early...but it seems tough on paper. But it's why they play the games.

That is one tough schedule.  I see them going 6-5 in those games.   

ARI, LAR, SEA, SF, BUF, NE, TB, BAL, MIA, LV and the NYJ

 

So I agree, they will need to go 4-2 in the division to hit 10 wins.

Is the Over/Under set at 10?  Since there are 17 games, I think I'd go over.  But I wouldn't bet on it, lol!

 Time of possession/run the ___ball!  We are set up for success at that.
 It should be a cardiac season, lots of close games.
   If Wentz plays really good and we get some bounces we win 12.
  I wish to add that when Wentz was MVP material he was spreading the ball around at a very high level. I see him and Frank salivating because of all of our attack weapons.
 Hines, TY, and Campbell on the field together. Chuckle.
  Sounds good in May.

Most books have it at 10. Really should be at 10.5 IMO.

 

I have actually seen 9.5...but they are way juiced up on the OVER.

I'm excited to see Hilton, Pacal, Pittman, Hines, Mack, Taylor, Cox, Campbell, Doyle and others on the field.

I don’t think the eagles had a pass catcher with more then 800 yards the year they won the SB. He fits Reich’s offense perfect. The key to Wentz is playing within himself and not try to play too much hero ball. That’s why this video is exactly right. Our defense will be its best when it isn’t on the field constantly and let’s the offense play ball control.

    • i dont know where your getting the information irsay would not let him fire chuck or wanting the 3-4 defense .   watching a couple of interviews of ryan after getting fired he claimed jim irsay was hands off and let him make his own choices .  ryan hired chuck because he wanted to and he was a fan of the 3-4 defense .  jim has always been hands off with his stafff only giving advice .  ryan clearly said he wanted to make things work with chuck and chose  not to fire him .   after ryan was fired jim let chris ballard make the choice on chuck , just like ryan made the choice on jim caldwell .    chris ballard knew luck was not gonna be ready until maybe the end of the 2017 season so he wanted to keep chuck in place to tank for more draft picks to trade back .
    • Year two is where we should really see him hit his ceiling. We are going to have to have a little patience with him this first year until everyone gets used to each other. I think he will be good this year bur 22 is where it should really click.
    • I simply don't know how much authority he ever had.  I'm not sure anybody does.   It sound like he was simply a guy who was plucked out of a job In Philly, maybe having narrow duties, but did not have the managerial instincts and NFL connections to be able to assemble a non Polian staff.    Still, did Irsay help him in this aspect or just let him sink?   It always seemed like a weird authority structure.  Starting right off with Irsay handling the PM situation, deciding to draft Luck, wanting a 34 defense, not allowing RG to fire Pagano, and I wonder who made the call to either keep Arians or Pagano after the ChuckStrong campaign but the team flourishing under Arians.  Not that there was a real choice, but I always wondered if Irsay and Grigs had a talk about that after season 1 and what each thought about each coach and why.
    • We were in a great spot to trade up for Herbert. But we only had two teams we could of traded with. The giants and I believe the lions.  They may not have wanted to trade. Then that means we Would not of gotten Buckner. I think Herbert would of been able to win right away with this team. Character wise he was the perfect fit too.
    • One thing that stuck out was he said he didn’t have a good supporting cast around him helping him make decisions. Irsay would of given him anything if he asked. This is why Ballard is so good. He surrounded himself with great people who keep him accountable. He even said the assistants and scouts at the end of the season get to review his job performance as a GM. He said they bust his balls lol.
