Outside of ANY A.Luck team,this year we are ABSOLUTELY SB bound. 


Really?   I certainly hope you’re right, but even if we have a very good draft — which I expect — I don’t see a Super Bowl team today. 
 

I see a playoff caliber team.  I see a team that can win the AFC South, but still has to do so.   I see a team that I think can make a run in the playoffs,  but I don’t know just how far we can go?   And I likely won’t know until after the 2022 regular season is over and know who is healthy and who is hurt?   How good was Ryan?   How good was Taylor and Pittman and all our other UNPROVEN weapons which we have many.  
 

But, as of today, I don’t see a Super Bowl caliber team.   I may see one by next January, but that’s still a long, long way off. 
 

Don’t mean to be Donnie Downer, but wanted to offer another perspective.

I think we have a good team but even I am not predicting a SB Championship. Could we make a long run, sure but the AFC is loaded. I do think we win the South though. If we had Luck in his prime I think we would have a real good chance of winning it all. We don't have Luck, but Matt Ryan will give it a good shot IMO. I really like our D a lot now after getting Yannick and Gilmore. Taylor should be close to the same as last year as well, he is still young.

@NewColtsFanwe usually do our yearly Colts W/L record predictions and we both nearly nail it each year. Usually we do it after the draft so I will save mine until then like you do, but early on I can see us winning 11 games, maybe 12. I hope we add 1 more playmaker like a good WR or TE. I don't think I have been so hyped for a season since 2018 when Luck came back off injury.

I agree.

The team could excel with Ryan and make a run at the Superbowl or it could falter and be a wild card team and lose in the first round.  The caliber of QB's in the AFC makes it nearly impossible for me to pick 1 team to do it with any certainty.  MaHomes, Allen, Burrow, Herbert, Wilson, Watson, Jackson, Carr, Tannehill and Ryan.  

 

We don't yet know if Reich can manage the offense effectively.  I hope so.

 

To keep this with the threads positive view, the sky is the limit and we have a young hungry team with lots to prove.  I look forward to getting into the mix.

You mean drafting guys like Grover, Nelson, Leonard, Smith, Pittman, Taylor, and Kwitty offsets any misses he’s had?  I am shocked I say!  

Well ... when you put it that way, I might even become an optimist.

@RollerColt, you must love this pick?

I’m very happy for him and his family. He’s a good fit for our team in many ways. Hopefully he and Reggie grow together as player and coach for many years to come in Indy.

Watching NFL Now today 5/9 Judy Batista predicted the Colts will go to the Super Bowl. Now I see John Breech of CBS Sports has the Colts winning the division with no other predictions. :applause::td:

The schedule is a good one-no Buffalo and no Cincy. Like last year the last two games should be winners but that was true of the last two games last year.

Last years schedule was a farce. The 1st 5 games were ridiculous for any team to come out of that better than 2-3. We still did and was 9-6 at one point but ran out of gas.

I would have said Raimann is a steal too. PFF has done some work on what people consider steals and reaches and what they have concluded is that unfortunately there is no such thing as a draft steal - the players that get drafted considerably lower than expected usually perform at the level of their real draft position rather than at their projected draft position. 

 

On the flip side - what people call a "reach" is actually a real thing - when a player gets drafted much higher than his projected draft position, he's very likely to not perform at his real draft position level, but rather at his projected draft position level. 

 

This is kind of fascinating and the explanation for this is kind of interesting too - for a player to be considered a reach only one team needs to value him way above other teams and reach to draft him. This means all you need is for one team to make a mistake, and this happens with relative regularity. On the other hand for a player to be considered a steal, a lot of teams need to pass on him(sometimes multiple times) and it's much less likely that multiple teams are making the same mistake - i.e. usually there is a reason why they would be passing on him and sometimes that reason is hidden to the public so the projected draft position is not affected(for example, maybe all teams know he has a serious injury or off-field concerns that the public doesn't know about and that affects his performance).

It was hard but it wasn’t THAT hard.   And we didn’t come out of the 5 game stretch 2-3 or better.   We came out 1 and 4.    And from where I sit it was mostly due to our early injuries….  Wentz, Fisher, Nelson, Kelly, Smith and TYH.   That’s 6 key players at the start of the season.   To me that’s what hurt us the most. 
 

You want to see a hard schedule?   Look at what the Rams faced all season long.  Brutal.
