Ugh. Most of these nationally televised games are on the road. Teams will be salivating at the chance to knock off the Colts in front of the eyes of the rest of the nation.

I think it's great we play in five prime time games but couldn't we have hosted more than one of those games. Where's the love?

The Colts have one of the best road records. So don't get so worked up about that you find yourself conceding the games before they're played.

Any team will be salivating to knock off any other team.

With a defeatist attitude like yours you'd think the Colts don't stand a chance.

I'm glad the NFL showed the Colts some love with the prime time games, but what about the fans. I sure would have liked to at least see two prime time games at home. I think that is rediculous!!!!!!!!!

I have a funny feeling about this coming season. We have lost some really good players via free agency, every other team will be "up" for us as defending Super Bowl champs, and history shows that it is very hard to repeat as champs. I am not conceding anything --- just saying that we have things stacked against us next season.

As an NFL fan, I am shocked that the Colts only received one home primetime game. It is often seen as a negative to teams that play primetime games on the road because it makes the following week short in terms of practice and preperation. I think Super Bowl Champs should get at least 2 if not 3 at home.

Most games have a storyline. Your 'gut feeling' is only hesitation seeing that we've never been defending champs. Indy has always relished the underdog role. Like all NFL seasons, a few teams that look tough here will be awful come game time and others will have risen from obsurity. It is what it is and the Colts will do just fine assuming they stay injury free. Isn't that what a lot of the NFL is all about?

Every year I look at the new Colts' Schedule I think, "Oh man! Its going to be tough to win!"
Then, Indy comes out and beats some very good teams. So, I say, bring it on! Peyton and company play well the tougher it gets.
Is it September yet???

Ok !
This schedule puts the Superbowl Champs at an immediated disadvantage ! It is not fair .
Solution :
1. Take two of the preseason games and turn them into regular games - now season total 18 . one game home , one away .
2. With 18 game schedule now only play teams in your Conference (AFC. or NFC.).
(a.) teams in your division (i.e. Colts South) play twice
(b.) all other teams in your Conference (AFC. or NFC.) you play once
(c.) total of 18 games
(d.)what could be more fair than that?
3. Take one of additional games added to schedule and play out of country or in U.S. city that does not have an NFL. Team
4. Remaining preseason games all proceeds go to charity ( after gross of course ).
5. Teams play more interleague practice games during training camp ... hit other teams players ... and let diehard fans have additionaa excuse(s) for taking of work .
6. Superbowl now has more meaning .... Teams have not met during regular season .

We lost Dominick Rhodes, but still have Addai. We can do without him, as we have without Edge.

We lost Mike Doss- who did not play in the playoffs.

We Nick Harper- who did not even play in the Superbowl.

We Lost Montae Reagor- Who did not play the last half of the season.

We lost Brandon Stokely- who did not play the last half of the season.

We lost Cato June- frankly the only one I am worried about getting replaced. But if we get someone to step up there...

There is nothing to worry about. We'll be fine.

Try playing football. It is very exhausting! The wear and tear on their bodies demand that they need rest. It looks easy to play those games through the TV set, but the starters need rest. Plus, the preseason games are great for testing and finding your better players. Leave it alone, the system is good.

To Walter.
It is not a defeatist attitude to want more than one prime time game. If you knew how to read, nowhere does it say I think the Colts will lose those games.
