That doesn't predict the future.   That's a stat like many others that will at some point no longer be a fact.   

Here’s to hoping Burrow is the one to break it. But I’m biased lol.

I'm hoping their MetLife trips for the nyj and nyg are in the warmer months for when I attend. 

 

That January Giants game with Nick Folk was freezing.

Oh you had to bring that game back from the inner mechanisms of my fragile mind…

2 more streaks that must end this year! Opening Day Win and finally witness a win at Jacksonville!

Hearing the “Duvallllllll” chant is like nails on a chalkboard

I'm an east coast fan and I remember I kept going to opening day for many years during the Peyton years and we had a great opening day record. 

 

We can't buy a win on opening day anymore... It's brutal.

It just shows how much harder it is to get back there once you’ve lost the first one. Not sure why that’s been a star but there may be something to it.

Yep they do play broncos but they don’t have a rookie HC. My guess if correct it would be the Pats. Drake Maye or Jacoby.

Be some interesting storylines running all week heading into that matchup, especially if it’s Jacoby starting.

This is a post I make every season.   
 

What I look for when the schedule is revealed:    In no particular order. 

 

** Where do the Colts open and close tge season
** Bad weather games.  Too hot/humid or cold

** where is the toughest stretch of schedule 

** where is the easiest stretch of schedule

** when is the bye week


Hope this helps.

Thinking out loud….  

 

17 games, the Colts got 9 at home last year, so we’ve got 9 on the road this year.   
 

Not very worried about bad weather games from the Jags, Houston or Tenn.  

 

But in the remaining 6 games,  FIVE are potential bad weather games.   The NYGiants, the NYJets, New Eng, Green Bay, and Denver.  Minnesota is a dome so no problem there.  
 

But those other FIVE games could be cold, snow, rain, heat or even humidity.  Thinking out loud, I suppose Jax could be a concern with heat, rain, humidity.  I reversed myself on that one.  (lol).   
 

So I’ll be looking for where those games land on the schedule.

I will say this, historically we’ve been a good team for bad weather games. Which is ironic considering we’re a dome team. But we’ve got the right personnel for bad weather, strong trenches and a workhorse running back. 
 

Strong passing teams struggle mightily in the rain against us, thanks to Big Grove and Buck stymying the run.

At Patriots week 1 is a nice start for us, we travel to Green Bay for week 2.


Are you guessing or has that been leaked?

 

EDIT:  Nevermind, I saw the Stampede Blue report.  Thanks!

NY is not as safe as it was even 4 years ago

 

I have seen the Giants/Colts play in that stadium but not the Jets/Colts

 

Colts at Jets is one of my last remaining "bucket list"  

 

Will probably miss Jets game but go to Vikings game

I love it when the Colts play in bad weather. We have the personnel for those games and usually do great in them. We will have the advantage in bad weather, even if it's away.

what time will the schedule be announced...


8p in the East.   5p in the West. 
 

ESPN and NFL Network carry it live.   But teams will officially release their 2024 schedule to the fan base at that time on their website! 
 

So be here looking at the front page of the website at that time with TV on in the background!    Enjoy!

Burrow will eventually win a Ring IMO, I doubt Allen will. Burrow is slightly better, and I don't see Cincy ever getting rid of Chase either. Cincy is a better ran organization than the Buffalo is going by the last 4 years.

Too many exclusive streaming games this year. I got YouTube tv and don’t have to subscribe to nfl plus anymore so this makes me mad. NFL plus you get all the exclusive games. Going to be mad if any of those are colt games.

They are all free online..

Yes.    This also helps to predict the W/L's.      I hear a lot of people just throwing out 9-8, 10-7 or 11-6 etc.  Without even seeing the schedule.

    • And to be fair…Garrett was also two years younger.   I mean… Garrett had 13.5 sacks in the NFL at the age Latu was a senior in college. Imagine Garrett still in college at that point.  Latu is still a great prospect, but some of these are really high expectations.
    • Massive deal. Billions of dollars to the local economies inbound from each of these events. The Rumble is my favorite night of the year, so I’m most excited for that one. There’s nothing better than a well done Rumble.    I’ve said since the day it opened that I don’t know why WWE hasn’t run WM at the stadium. Coming in the north entrance and seeing the ring down below and a full house across the way is going to be a killer camera shot.      Hopefully they open the roof for SummerSlam. 
    • Shaw did do a very poor job of recruiting his last few years which infuriated a good part of the fan base.  They were happy to see him retire early, though he left with a very generous golden parachute which made many fans even angrier.      As for the Hogan years, yes they were very good.  But not primarily due to Hogan who was a nice college level quarterback.    Hogan was supported by (A) Christian McCaffrey and (B) the most talented Stanford recruits in school history.  Including an OL with two future 1st round draft picks on it plus other very good talent.  And (C) some of the best defensive players Stanford ever recruited.   The team was as loaded as Stanford can get.  Hogan just had to be good, there was rarely pressure for him to be great.    Someday….  (If anyone is interested)   Perhaps this off-season, I’ll tell you some great Stanford Sports stories.  The school is an odd mix of strange decisions concerning football and other sports plus some decisions that are both good and infuriating.  Most days it’s easy to be a Stanford fan.  But somedays the school makes it so hard.   Harder than they need to.       
    • 3-14 mostly cause AR is still a question mark. I do like what I did see but until he proves he can make it a season, no one knows. So I’m setting bar low
    • They didn't win a game that AR played the majority of snaps. I am not even factoring in his injury risk. Even assuming he's healthy, he's basically repeating his rookie year. While everybody would agree his upside is higher than Minshew's, there's still nothing definitive to point to AR automatically equaling more wins.    Also, as you mentioned, the Colts fundamentally stayed the same, meanwhile, AFCS teams got stronger, especially HOU and TEN. TLaw beat both Minshew and AR last year. Stroud is now in year 2. Levis will be in year 2 (and if we think AR will make a jump, we have to consider that Levis could as well).   Yes, they won 9 games last year with Minshew. But their schedule isn't the same nor is it easier. So it's weighing the impact of AR returning + some young player development) vs. a much tougher schedule of QBs + offseason improvements for other teams (in most cases) + some young player development.   When I compare what happened last year to what they are facing this year, I don't see where they are supposed to make up the ground in the win column. I suppose there could be a rash of QB injuries again. But barring that, the win improvement has to come against good-great teams, which is a tall order.
