Man those Giants have played a cake schedule huh Jints.
it changes week to week and means squat...giants have toughest schedule in nfl based on last years records, which is the only measurement the nfl uses...pats have the second easiest...this idea of schedule strength based on a teams weekly performances is nonsense...gmen already played cowboys and eagles and will play saints ravens 49ers steelers packers and eagles and cowboys again
thats called a brutal schedule...a Champions schedule, which makes me wonder how the pats played in the sb and yet play powder puffs...i think its a plot by goodell to make sure pats win every year..i mean ur division is weak enough w/o powder puffs outside it : )
Jints.... seemed many thought the Pats had a cupcake schedule going into this season and look who has one now?? Getting defensive?? Last year's teams are NOT 2012 teams!!!
Hey, I got nothing against a bong hit or two, but big boys ought to stop once they have reached their limit.
Let's examine your list in your so-called "brutal schedule," shall we?
Yes, you play the 4-1 Ravens and the 4-1 49ers, both good teams. But the Pats play both of those teams this year, so those cancel out.
What is left on your list is the Cowboys, Eagles, Saints, Steelers and Packers. Hmmm, let's see what the stats say?
Team, Wins, Losses, PF, PA, Differential, (Note)
Cowboys, 2-2, 65, 88, -23 (beaten by 16 at home to the punchless Bears)
Eagles, 3-2, 80, 99, -19 (Vick trying to set the career record for turnovers in 1 season)
Saints, 1-4, 141, 154, -13 (But for Norv Turner, would be 0-5)
Steelers, 2-3, 116, 115, +1 (Mash units have fielded healthier teams)
Packers, 2-3, 112, 111, +1 (Taken down by that AFC powerhouse w/rook QB, Indy)
Total, 10-14, 514, 567, -53
Woooo...that sure is BRUUUUTAL, I tell ya.
