    @ Tennessee
    vs Atlanta
    vs Jacksonville
    BYE WEEK
    vs Carolina
    @ New England
    @ Baltimore
    vs Tennessee
    vs Houston
    @ Jacksonville


    Someone PLEASE tell me there are a couple of W's somewhere in there... But for me, 0-16 looks very possible. I guess they could beat JAX once, that's about it...

    no one player makes a football team ... unless it's peyton manning. my respect for him grows each week with how epically bad the colts are. it's insane that one man can be the alpha and omega of the most team based sport.

    they might steal one (probably in the division), but i wont predict a win for the colts this season.

    Just one of the JAX games, and maybe TN. I think Carolina gets stronger as the season progresses.

    I couldn't agree with you more. There is no reason why he shouldn't win the MVP trophy for the rest of his career after he comes back... In the meantime, they're the favorites to win the "Suck for Luck" sweepstakes...

    I only see 1 possible win, when they play Jacksonville at home. I think they win the Suck for Luck race and turn it into a bunch of draft picks by trading down.

    I will pull hard for them to beat Tennessee, but that's even not looking good.

    they MAYBE can steal one against the titans or jax. I have absolutely no idea why people think Carolina is a bad team. Granted they're not playoff contenders (yet) but they're definitely headed in the right direction.

    Also as a Texans fan I hope everyone here is rooting for the Colts to win 2-3 games (not against us of course) . The last thing we need is Peyton freaking Manning to tutor Andrew Luck. I want multiple Playoff appearances and hopefully a SB within the next 2-3 years.:koolaid:

    Is that not a talented team? Wayne, Collie, Garcon, Clark... Addai, Brown, Carter, & the defense is a lot more talented than what we've seen this year.

    The Coaches just have to learn how to coach.

    I think they screwed themselves, by bringing Collins in & wasting a few games, I'm not a big fan of Painter's, but Collins isn't Farve, you're not going to bring him into a totally different offense than what he's been running & expect to start winning.

    If I'm the FO, I'd be upset with an 0-7 record. How would you feel if we had to start Lienart for the season & we go to Cincy in week 6 & Andy Dalton shows him up? I'd be pissed at my defense & I'd be pissed at my Offensive staff.

    Injuries are part of the game & it's not like Indy has had a murders row of a schedule so far.

    @Houston: Classic Paper Tiger (being honest)
    Cleveland: Winnable
    Pittsburgh: lost by 3 at home, this game was winnable
    @TampaBAy:Winnable (lost by a touchdown)
    Kansas City: Lost by 4, Kansas City was 1-3 coming in
    @Cincinnati:


    Losing Peyton is big.... I'm not saying it isn't, but they are 0-7 & we're not talking about a schedule full of Ravens, Saints, Greenbay, Steelers, Patriots..... we're talking about a last place schedule.

    no, it's not. wayne's upper tier. clark is good in the system. all others are products of manning and would drop off like edgerrin james in arizona. the defense MIGHT have 4 players who would start on other teams ... 2 of which are on IR. the offense might have 3 ... and that's if somebody needs a slot tightend and center.

    Took the words out of my mouth. I think Wayne and Clark would be the only two on offense to be able to start on another team.

    What if the Colts and Dolphins both finish 0-16? Do they flip a coin for Andrew Luck?

    I actually believe they don`t want to win a game this season... they are so serious about the suck for Luck race - Luck is their Super Bowl this year, and they do everything to land him. It will be a tight race with the Dolphins though.

    They have a good shot at beating the BYE.

    So what has Polian been doing all these years?

    I think Strength of Schedule would be used as the tie breaker.
