Haven't seen a thread started yet. Figured it'd be fun to speculate at it.

Who do we open with? Another home opener?

Typically don't see much interconference action Week 1. And we're due for an away opener.

Afraid we might see the Colts again in Indy week 1. Would be a rough place for Kubes to cut his teeth.

A popular suggestion I've seen has been that Denver opens on the road at Chicago for MNF.

I wonder which week we'll be visiting New England this year?

Yeah, I know they've promised not to do that, but ...

That would be fun. I don't think the league likes to stoke the coach drama as much as the player drama though.

And that would be the only storyline available in that matchup. No other real implications for either team, other than the W/L.

And I'd bet on that being the opener, except the dirtbags won it all, so they'll host an opener at home.

I think we'll open in Indy, but Chicago is a strong possibility too, heard that mentioned.

I'll call it now, we'll play the pats here obviously but there will be some unusual circumstance that will benefit the pats like us coming off a Monday night and them fresh off a bye.. Because goodell is kraft's puppet.

Kraft is going to name himself chairman of the rules committee so he can change the "flex rule" to include game location. He'll have it flexed to NE.

We haven't opened on the road since 2010 so we are about due for a road opener. With the US Open tennis tourney going to ESPN it does open up the possibility of a Sunday afternoon home opener for the first time in many years (CBS always prevented that in the past for US Open coverage)

The bye week is all I really care about this year, hoping its week 8 or beyond this year.

That would be fantastic, we've circled Chicago for our annual road trip, so having it on MNF & nice weather would be great.

Only because the Orioles wouldn't give up the date. So the Ravens had to go on the road.

Detroit, Chicago, Indy, Cleveland and Pittsburgh all on my radar for road trips this year (well not Detroit, I live there) All depends on when they fall

This is a great year for you Dendave! How a Broncos-Lions Thanksgiving game? Would be a great excuse to escape the crazy family.

Chicago, KC for sure. Indy left a bad taste in my mouth, not sure I want to go back. Screw Irsay. Cleveland would be fun.

A Thanksgiving game possibility? That is glorious, so long as we can bring back Ron Dayne for a Turkey Day romping!

I am not into the Broncos playing the Thanksgiving game, but I am sure that is what is going to happen, I like the late starts so we can tailgate longer. I am all for a Sunday, or Monday night game though

I don't mind Sunday Night but just hate Monday night games. "waiting all day for Monday night" sucks... its more like waiting all Sunday and Monday for Monday night.

I'll take thanksgiving as our one Thursday game. Thursdays are the worst.
