In response to TexasPat's comment:
Seemingly every other word coming from the football talking heads on the NFL Network are Peyton praises, such as, "Wow, can you imagine how good Peyton Manning will be this year, now that he's gotten a full season in Denver under his belt, and with the addition of Wes Welker??"
Isn't it also interesting that the Broncos drew the easiest schedule in the league, despite finishing with the best record in the AFC last year (13-3)? Is good ol' Jolly Roger Goodell propping up his choice for league poster boy, yet again?
With the hated Horseface the focal point of all football talk, it's getting increasingly difficult for Patriots' fans to watch ESPN, or the NFL Network.
Why are you talking nonsense about the scheduling. The only things that can be altered are when the teams play each other and which has the home games. The schedules of who they play are FIXED, PREDETERMINED, UNALTERABLE. Got that? Goodell has NOTHING to do with it. So, for your edification, here it is ONE MORE TIME:
Six games against the other teams in their division. Each of the other three teams is both home and away.
Four games against another division in their conference. Those divisions rotate on a three year cycle. Two are at home and two away.
Four games against a division in the other conference. Those divisions rotate on a four year cycle. Two are home and two are away.
That adds up to fourteen of the sixteen games. The other two games are against the two divisions in their conference that they don't play all four teams. The matchups are first against first, second against second and so on. One is at home and one is away.
So, you see, there is NO flexibility of who the teams play. It is determined on a regular rotation cycle and the only variables are two games that are determined immediately upon the completion of the sixteen games of the previous year by a fixed procedure.
Goodell has NOTHING to do with who they play and I am sick of ignorant people shooting their mouths off about something they know nothing about.
