I also think the AFC West and NFC North are going to suck this year! I absolutely LOVE this schedule over last years!

12-4 this year fellas!!!!!!
I wouldn't say the Chargers are a SURE loss especially when Drew is gonna want to win this game more then any all year. My cousins a big Bears fan and he cant stop calling me to say you guys are coming to chicago again baby just once I wish they would come to the Dome but all and all I like this schedule pretty easy 2 monday night games thats awesome I was hoping for at least 1. I could see 12-4

Re: Saints 2008 schedule

Are they tough teams? - no. But it's not just about who you're playing - it's also about how much traveling you're doing, and how many time zones you're shifting, and how much rest and time you're getting to acclimate to those new time zones.

I worked in a consulting position for nearly a decade. And I can tell you from experience - the traveling, the shifting from time zone to time zone, it can really take your legs out from under you.

Re: Saints 2008 schedule

It's hard to look at the schedule now. Who knows who will be good. With all the FA pickups by the Raiders I wouldn't even count them out. I still wish the Chargers would have eaten that London home game. I would have loved to see them come to the Dome. I think week 1 will tell us alot. The defending division champ week 1 home. wow. The Nfl must think we will be decent to put us on primetime 4 times, but alot of that has to do with Reggie. All I heard on the Espn radio today was Bush vs Peterson Oct. 6.

B. On my trips to TB, the fans have always been cool. It's a great stadium to watch a game (especially under the ship) and a great town to hang out in after the game.

I live in Atlanta now and they have a mixed bag of fans (cheaper seats = nastier fans)

I'm planning on making TB for the game also. Let me know if you go!!
I live in ATL too and agree with you about the fans. Even with sellouts you can tickets, so there are always a ton of away fans. Plus the ATL fans turn on the team in no time. The PA just alternates between rap and country to drowned out the visiting fans.

PS, on the schedule, I like it. Last year it started with at Indy and TB, so we are already one step ahead.
