2012-2013 Colts Schedule

Recommended Posts

you weren't a colts fan prior to the manning era?

I was but I didn't really watch nearly as many football games as I do now. I was too busy in college drinking, studying and chasing women!

New GM. New coaches. New offense. New defense. New special teams (hopefully). New QB. Shall I go on?

That's a nice matchup in Week 1 up I-65, Jay Cutler to Brandon Marshall for the Bears vs. (Andrew Luck) to Reggie Wayne for the Colts at Soldier Field.

Hopefully a few of the early season opponents overlook the Colts a bit in their minds......

Besides, nobody truly knows what to expect with this thing here. They might be very competitive early on and suprise us. If they get blown out nobody will be stunned.

Week 1 is tough but the next two games are winnable.

On the good side, there are only three games that conflict with the Broncos.

On the bad side, there are only three games that conflict with the Broncos.

I might need a new chair to start the season, and a new wife by the end of the season. haha

haha I can relate... it's just the opposite at our house I'm the Football fanatic....

The Browns are the only "sure thing" on the schedule as I see it. I think we beat the Titans and the Jaguars at home.

Will the Vikings defense be lousy again, especially against a rookie QB? The Buffalo Bills have the best D-line in football now! The Chiefs young defense will be much better, especially if there are no injuries again. Miami's defense is not too shabby.

I say 3 - 13 but maybe we beat the Vikings early (enthusiasm and poor defense again) and the Jaguars away so 5 - 11 is a decent possibility. GO COLTS!

at the end of the year, the colts had the 8th hardest schedule in the league and went 2-14. the colts only lost by seven or less in 7 out of 14 losses. the colts now have the 14th hardest schedule(tied with 3 other teams) and have better players and coaches. i'm predicting 8-8 or 9-7 or 10-6 positively

How did we get stuck with a week 4 BYE?!?! Garbage.....Hopefully the flex scheduling will take effect so we can get another prime-time game.

I like the optimism that some of you guys share that we will win 9-10 games this season but realistically I just can't see that happening. I would expect more along the lines of 3-4 wins this year and I'll bet that's what most people in the Colts organization expect. The reason is pretty simple: as of now, approximately 75% of the Colts' roster has 2 or fewer years of NFL experience and is making at or slightly above minimum NFL salary (if you don't believe me, look it up). We will surely be one of if not the youngest NFL team this year. You simply can't expect a completely overhauled coaching staff, front office, and young players to win in year 1 of the rebuilding process. Even with such a high prospect as Andrew Luck and a seemingly "easy schedule." There will be growing pain but patience is a virtue. I believe that each year this team will improve by a couple wins and as we begin to draft and mold young talent, this team can be a force in the AFC again. It will all depend on if we draft the right players because we will have high picks in the coming years. And if the new front office decides to start going after free agents with all the cap room we will have cleared next year, I am OK with that too. But this is not the year for great expectations, but keep the faith, we will get back someday!!

Almost all 1pm games? Best news I've heard about anything Colts related all year. No longer do I need to stay up until 6AM to watch the Colts because of time zone differences.

I know the early bye looks like crap, but maybe with a new QB it might be good. He might need it. Who knows, maybe we have some momentum and can go into the bye with a win against the Jags. Or even the Vikings before that. After the bye is the Packers...they will need some time to figure out something for THAT offense lol.

It might not hurt to have an early bye with new coaches and a rookie QB.

The Bears are on upset alert!

The Bears are on upset alert!

We owe them for ruining our opener in 2008!!!!!

You're absolutely right Jules we sure do. I don't know if our squad will have an answer for Lance Briggs & Julius Peppers as the 1st team out of the regular season gate though. It would be tremendous to set the tone with a victory no doubt.

On the plus side, we don't play ONE SINGLE TEAM coming off a bye week!

The closest thing is the Lions coming off a Thursday game.

Okay, with our 2-14 record last season, I thought we'd not have to play New England this season. Why are they ALWAYS on our schedule?? There's no more Manning-Brady drama to showcase.

It's the Colts' year to play the entire AFC East.

Okay, that explains it...I didn't study the schedule that closely to make that connection. Makes sense now....Jets, Bills, Dolphins and Cheaters

1 one prime time game vs multiple for other non-2011 playoff teams like SD, NYJ and Philly, and multiple for the scourge of the league Saints. 3 years removed from the Super Bowl and a draft pick heralded as the best coming out in 25+ plus years and one prime time game, on a stinking Thursday at that. How does the winning-est team from the first ten years of the new millennium become Rodney Dangerfield while teams like Pitt and NE continue to get the lime light. I can remember both of them failing to make the playoffs immediately following Super Bowl appearances and not losing any prime time coverage. Good grief, the Cardinals, Redskins and Chiefs even got MNF.

It's the result of 2-14. If you have an interesting season, you'll be back to some prime games in 2013. Every team has one Thursday night game this year.

It could be like 1999-2001 where teams could have byes in week 1. How terrible would that be?

Week 1 -- @ Bears - L

Week 2 -- Vikings - Toss up

Week 3 -- Jaguars - W

Week 4 -- BYE

Week 5 -- Packers - L

Week 6 -- @ Jets - L

Week 7 -- Browns - W

Week 8 -- @ Titans - L

Week 9 -- Dolphins - Toss up

Week 10 -- @ Jags - L

Week 13 -- @ Lions - L

Week 14 -- Titans - W

Week 15 -- @ Texans - L

Week 16 -- @ Chiefs - Toss Up

Week 17 -- Texans - Toss Up (Texans could be resting players)

I have us down for three games I think will definitely be wins, five toss up games that could go either way, and 8 losses.

Best case scenario is we go 8-8, but the worst case scenario is 3-13.

    • Willis - the 4th round pick they traded up to get will be lucky to make the 53?  Man that is highly questionable. I’d say he is much closer to a lock to make the roster than be cut prior to opening day. 
    • Well Im back been a long haul , my wife being blind had rotator cuff surgery and been in bad turn at same time so my cups been full.  But look lol the Central is just about where I left it. 162 games tells the story . Cards Cubs Brewers all right there together.
    • Faulk was a great player, but he was never a pure grind out yards type running back. Edge was.   James is a huge part of why the offense exploded in 1999 after we traded Faulk & drafted James. The play action to Edge/ bomb over the top to Harrison was absolutely LETHAL 
    • As you have noticed,  I have taken a long time to respond.   Apologies in advance,  my response is long....   Everything you think I "overstated" I personally think I understated.     And I think all the arguments you used to make a case that the spring is more ideal than the winter is hugely overstated.   Look at the last sentence of your post...    how you describe "looking at the bigger picture and taking your time..."        Says who?      Who says an owner didn't look at the bigger picture in December as a disappointing season was coming to an end and that a decision was rushed?    That's entirely written by you as opinion based on zero known facts.    And it's your interpretation that better decisions can be made in the spring.   Huh?    When it's too late to fire the HC and his staff that gave you the disappointing previous season that got the GM fired in the first place.    Now, your new GM has to deal with a HC and staff that he didn't hire.   Now everyone in the building is walking on pins and neeedles wondering if they'll get fired or be retained.   So,  all the advantages of doing those decisions in winter of Y1 for the new GM,  now have to be done in winter of Y2.     So, if they're going to be done,  how is it better to flush a year down the drain and do it the following year?   I see lots of opinion,  and very little fact.    You've tossed out a number of interesting names that are available now....    nice names and none were in the running for a GM job 5 months ago,  and suddenly you think the next hot GM is in the pile?    I appreciate that Nick Caserio might be the exception to the Patriots rule from the BB tree....    but BB has a poor record of turning out good HC's elsewhere.   He might someday....   but not so far.    Front office is decent I think, so maybe Caserio is good?   But Don't you want to get all of this done sooner than later?    Don't you want to rip the band-aid off ASAP?   Doesn't the new GM want to hire his own guy,  his own staff, ASAP?     And if you think the answer is no,  then why don't all GM's who get hired in January,  do it your way?    Why don't they keep the staff,  the HC,  coordinators and assistants,  all the front office types and the scouts,  and do all the changes the following winter?     Why don't they do that?   They don't,  do they?   I really wish this was just a simple thought experiment.   That you were simply making a case that making a GM change in the spring is do-able and not anythig else.    Some here don't understand when it happens at all in the spring and I've made the argument several times that the spring isn't as bad as you think.    Doable under certain circumstances is perfectly OK.   But you're not doing that.     You're not arguing for doable.   Instead you're arguing for desireable.    And you think it's an easy decision.    I confess that even as your biggest admirer,  perhaps BECAUSE I'm your biggest admirer,  I find this position more than a little head scratching.....   Just saying....      
    • Middleton had a contract that was 4 years or longer and the Bucks have his bird rights. That doesn't apply for Randle and the Pelicans.
