So you'd rather go in there in December when the AFC west could be tight? Weather isn't as bad in September up there. The earlier the better IMO. Get it out of the way. Team responded well to Baltimore. Steelers before that.

This is from rotoworld.

The league will announce the 2014 schedule Wednesday at 8PM ET on NFL Network.

The "drama" is over. This season's matchups are already known, but the dates are not. The season will begin on a Thursday night in Seattle, where the defending-champion Seahawks will likely host a conference rival.

Here's reasons i wouldnt mind getting it out of the way.

- Given how physical that game would be, would give Den a few more days to heal up.
- It's probably the hardest game on the schedule, get it out of the way win or lose.
- Weather, it's unlikely there would be bad field conditions in September.
- We're gonna have to go up there at some point, why not Week 1?

I strongly doubt we'll open in Seattle. It would be odd to not only play them in the preseason but turn around a few weeks later and open the regular season in the same spot.

People buzzing that it will be Indy at Denver week 1. I don't see that happening. Too early to burn that matchup or Manning/Brady. As somebody mentioned we've started at home the past three years. I think they'll have us on the road at Cincy to start.

We won't open in Seattle, I don't think we'll be going up there until later in the season. I don't want it to happen, either. Can't imagine the criticism the team will see if we go up there and get spanked week 1, and as stated above, not good for the psyche of the team to get their asses kicked by those guys yet again. I think it would be a much more competitive game, and I'm eager to see how we stack up with the new additions and having all of our injured players back. Week 1 though? No thanks. A nice home win over another playoff contender sounds great to me.

Colts have easiest schedule (opponents a combined 110-146). Last 2 teams with “easiest” sked, 2012 Pats and 2013 Broncos, reached Conf Champ

That was the win loss percentage of Denver's 2013 opponents BEFORE the season. Which was 32nd. At the end they played the 26th easiest schedule, KC played the easiest.

Should be worth nothing, that winning games statistically makes your schedule easier as your opponents records go down with every win.

I'm guessing the Seattle game will be like a week 10 matchup. It's a nice space between the preseason game, and a potential Super Bowl rematch, along with the fact it gives both teams a chance to build up superior records, so the game can feature two 9-1 teams or thereabouts.

Id be fine with getting outclassed in Sea or even SF early in season, even week 1. Then get tons of criticism. I want to see our team actually play with a chip on their shoulder for once. Seems to me, teams playing like its them against the world win Superbowls.

Problem is we don't keep that chip and get too cocky thinking we are the best and pull a sb effort.

PS 2014 team isn't getting a pass about big game failures this year. This team needs to learn toughness and pull out wins against two of these teams ne sf sea

Seattle was hardly them against the world. Most picked them to win the Super Bowl before last season started. SB favorites in a lot of eyes. They were the most cocky team out there from coaching staff on down to the players. I'll take cocky over the underdog motivation angle. I didnt really see us being cocky leading up to the SB. I didnt really see any emotion.

Me too but winning a regular season game is not revenge for a playoff loss. I hate it when teams act like it is.

But it's something. After the Baltimore loss, the throttling we put on them the next year felt good.
