I just really don't see where the improvement that people are projecting is supposed to come from. I actually expect them to regress from last year's record, even assuming significant improvement by Luck.
Not to speak for others but, in my case:
Two games against the Titans
Two games against the Jaguars
Games against the AFCW (Raiders/Chiefs/Chargers)
Game against Dolphins
Game against Rams
Game against Bengals
Game against Cardinals
That's a good amount of winnable games before we get to the likes of the Texans/Seahawks/49ers/Broncos. I want to see them in the exhibition games, but I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt until then. I'm going to focus a lot on the Colts and Ravens, because I think both of them should be very interesting to follow.
