Saints Have 2nd Easiest Schedule

USATODAY.com

We are #2 in the latest USA Today Computer Rankings to the Indy Colts.

Before you say you don't compare about rankings consider....

According to the USA Today computer rankings, we haven't played anybody. Based on the current computer power ranking, we have the second easiest schedule to date in the NFL.

No wonder we 9-0.

I don't care who we have played. We are very close to being TWO HOME wins away from going to the Superbowl. And we have the talent to win the Superbowl when we get there.

Do you remember the year we went 12-4 and didn't even win our own division. It's about time the schedule gave us a freaking break.

As Denver found out an easy game on the schedule is not always easy. And a few of those teams were undefeated when we played them. So reflect that in the schedule.

TOTALLY DISAGREE... Good call just not executed is all. There was plenty of time for Manning to take that ball from any part of the field to the Endzone. Thats all they have done this year. give them 48 seconds he'll take them 90 yards for a score. It was a good call by the pats coach... keep the ball out of Payton's hands and you MIGHT have a chance to win anyone who tells you otherwise has an agenda.

There are no easy games in the NFL, but some are easier than others. We'll find out how good we are after Atlanta, Dallas and New England.

I think Tampa is going to be another close game.

Yeah, their agenda is called mathematics. If you look at the probabilities of conversion vs the probabilities of the Colts driving 70 yds with no timeouts you punt the ball. Period. End of story. NO agenda just mathematical fact.

Re: Saints Have 2nd Easiest Schedule

Strength of schedule is a slippery slope. After all the Rams played better than expected yesterday - while the Giants looked like a UFL team when we played them.

Re: Saints Have 2nd Easiest Schedule

Strength of schedule is calculated incorrectly by the league. A team with a good record will always have an "easier" schedule.

The Saints are 9-0, so say our opponents' records are then 36-45.
If we were 1-8, our opponents' record would be 44-37, and be considered a tough schedule.
