    I was just wondering what this league was like/ what it entails? :P I'm quite interested in joining (and also becoming more active in this thread), but I still don't really know that much about american football. I started watching last season, but only really watched my team's games (Colts ) Just wondering how much more I'd need to know about the league to be able to participate...

    One AFC championship game doesn't change multiple beatings

    Do you think you guys will do better or worse this year?

    I'd like to say better... Hopefully Luck will be a bit more confident this year. He just seemed a bit shaky at the start of last season, throwing a lot of interceptions and stuff. Hopefully some of the new players from the draft will mean that we have a more solid offensive line.

    Things can only go up though. Luck's gonna turn into a great quarterback.

    I think this year for you lot could be a bit of a wobble wouldn't expect you to win 11 games again. Think next year will be the one to watch out for Luck.

    To be honest I haven't actually looked at the schedule for next season yet. But I agree, it'll be a couple of years before Luck really comes through.

    I think it will be next year Luck really goes bang. Pretty damn excited to see Tavon Austin though this dude looks mercurial...
