NFL front offices will all projectile vomit at the same time when Aaron Rodgers gets injured in game one again.

Against the same player!!! He’s on the 49ers now and is projected to start.

Super late bye week. That really sucks for us. 


It’s what Ballard prefers.   Mid to late bye week.  It’s what the Colts have asked for.   The NFL surveys all 32 teams and tries to give each team what it wants within reason.

Best of luck to us… I hope it works out.

Crazy there are no back to back home games after week 4. What is nice is our road schedule is easier then home.

Is there no Thursday Night game? 

No

I'm not one of those wuss fans who cares much about when we play certain teams, but looks like a nice schedule mix with some potential weather games at the end of the season along with having to win right off the bat because we could easily lose a few and be in a hole quickly.

 

Can't wait honestly because I'll be seeing us live a minimum of twice at least.

 

Go Colts....

K.  What’s your four?

Don't  really have four, but I think we need to head into bye a 10-3 to be considered  legitimate  contenders

The view from 1800 miles away.   No stretch is terrible.    
 

BUT…..     there is a very long challenging stretch in the early/middle.  From week 4 thru week 12 is not going to be easy.  
 

Home Pitt

at Jags

at Tenn

Home MIA 

at Hous

at Vikings

Home Buff

at NY Jets

Home Det

 

I don’t think it’s brutal, but that’s a very long stretch of either good teams or home field advantage for the opponent.  
 

I think the easiest stretch is the end starting wk 13.  
 

at NE Pats

Bye

at Den

Home Tenn

at NY G

Home Jax

 

Looking forward to comments from Ballard and Steichen.  Tonight?  Tomorrow?   Anyone know?

Rough start. At least we get the Texans at home, but there's a legit chance we start 0-2. 😕

Tennessee gets a bye before playing us

Miami gets a bye before playing us

Minnesota gets an extended week before playing us

We play Denver after our bye, but they're also playing off a bye

I did not realize that the Colts were playing the Giants at Met Life Stadium. I may go to that game, as my friend, a Giants season ticket holder, may take me. I have been to two Colts @ Giants games with him. He and I are going to the Giants season opener against the Vikings at Met Life Stadium.

Houston isn't that big. 


I think Houston is one of the 4-5 biggest cities in the country.  Here’s the top-6 list. 
 

NY, LA, Chic, Hou, Phoenix, Philly

I believe it’s about the QB 

 

Exactly. The Jets have done nothing to merit 7 nationally televised games. It is all about Aaron Rodgers.

Think I'll hit that Minnesota game for my first in a few years. I'm in Oregon but was going out to Michigan for the Oregon Michigan game Saturday. Easy enough to pop over

    • 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.  
    • History says you win with a great qb or a great defense.  A great d hasn't won in a long time.   What does that leave??
