    Omitted from Polian's comments is that he expects the Pats to play 3 consecutive road games: at Baltimore, at Miami on a Monday night, then at Indy on a Sunday night, while the Colts have the prior week off to prepare for the Pats.

    Bears - Pats is the SB rematch that should have happened

    Well, he...err....the NFL pulled the same crap last year, except NE was guaranteed to play Indy at home (at Buffalo, at Minnesota on MNF, then vs Indy on SNF).

    All jokes aside that wouldn't surprise me one bit. I can imagine the Colts getting that setup against the Patriots.

    Yeh but any scheduling shenanigans might be in vain the Colts are bleeding personnel.

    There's a school of thought that when the SB winner hosts the opening night game it should be against an easier opponent i.e. Pats vs. Raiders. While the Saints aren't a dog, a loss to the Saints if the Colts stumble out of the gate isn't nearly as bad as a loss to the Pats in week 1.

    However, if you look at recent history, the opening night game has been the conference chamionship rematch.

    Setting up an excuse off a joke? How does that work?
