No surprise here. The Colts will be opening the season on Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints. I personally would have had them open the season on Sunday, but now we just get to embarass the Saints on national television.

We also get a Thankgiving game, but it'll be on the NFL Network.

I dont mind that at all. Nothing like getting fat, getting drunk, then watching your team slaughter somebody.

Both games are fantastic and exciting, can't wait.

Although I don't agree at all with the claim that Saints had the best offense in football last year, they indeed were one of the league's best and they now come into this game with a year with Sean Payton under their belt. The Saints definitely have their share of playmakers, and Brees has come into the RCA Dome and given the Colts grief back when he was a Chargers player. What a way to open the 2007 season.

It will be sort of strange to see the Colts open the season at home, considering they haven't done so since 1999, and the Dome will be rocking at what could be a playoff level - especially after they raise the Super Bowl XLI Championship banner. Hey, it's the last season opener at the RCA Dome, hopefully they send it out in style with a win and keep last year's undefeated streak alive.

As for the Thanksgiving game at Atlanta, I absolutely love it but I'm lucky to have access to NFL Network. As perfect a football setting as Thanksgiving may be, it seems to have more duds than gems in terms of the actual games, but the Colts traveling to Altanta to play the Falcons should deliver one of the latter imo. 99% of the time, the Falcons soak up the lights of primetime and play very well, and I expect that to be the case in this game. Michael Vick in his home dome is a scary proposition, although it will be interesting to see how the Colts' speedy defense matches up. Another excellent game.

Bob Sanders seems to enjoy playing on primetime, and plays well, so hopefully he and other players make that a trend this year. Plus, the incredible spotlight the Colts play with gives the young players the experience to preform under pressure before the playoffs, which I think is a great boon - it's crazy to think that guys like Joseph Addai and Antoine Bethea started their professional careers in one of the most frenzied atmospheres I've seen in recent years when they opened Sunday Night Football in Giants Stadium, the "Manning Bowl." Imo the regular season the Colts went through, where they were getting every team's best every week, helped them when the playoffs came.

You play a team like the Saints and the Falcons in front of the nation, home or away, you'll be tested. And we can't wait to watch.

Look after the bye week: back-to-back road games at Jacksonville and at Carolina, followed by the rematch against New England, and then a road game at San Diego. A home game afterwards in a playoff rematch against Kansas City, and then a short week for Atlanta on Thanksgiving. And then a home game against Jacksonville, and capped off with the playoff rematch against Baltimore on the road.

Holy smokes, Batman.

Well thats a sick schedule. I don't think there is a chance in hell for the Colts to go undefeated, but I think 11-5 or 12-4 is possible. You know what else is possible... Peyton going down and the Colts going 3-13 w/ that schedule. Some good defenses on that schedule that Sorgi would have to deal with.

It's certainly challenging, but that has benefits for preparing the Colts for the playoffs. And it should definitely be fun to watch.

Yeah, it's a tough schedule, but with so much parity in the NFL now, every team has to play tough opponents.

If Peyton goes down there is no way the Colts got 3-13. If Sorgi is just an average Qb look at all the weapons he has around him. I would say if Peyton got hurt in the preseason for the whole year. The Colts would still go 10-6.

It doesn't matter what our record for next year is, we already traded our 1st rounder away.

Last year before the season, I reasonably thought the Colts had a good chance to go 12-4, and it turns out they did although I certainly didn't expect the trio of: (1) Going undefeated at home; (2) yet losing 3 games in December; and (3) all the while dealing with the particular injuries they did (I had Corey Simon as a Comeback Player of the Year candidate - hopefully I was a year off).

I feel the same this year, I think the Colts have a good chance to go 12-4 in the regular season again.

That stretch after the bye week, which not only features challenging team after another but 6 out of 9 games are on the road, is certainly going to test the mettle of the Colts (Oakland has a playoff-caliber defense and the Raiders play better at home). But I'm a believer that last year's difficult schedule helped strengthen the Colts for the playoffs, especially in terms of winning tight games - maybe this year will do the same.
