Re: Strength of Schedule..Saints 27th

I look at it like this...

Do the "weak" teams on your schedule look improved over 2009?

Do the strong teams look any weaker than 2009?

To recap...

Teams that improved significantly so far (on paper)
Cleveland (we should still win)
Baltimore (our toughest game)

Teams that got worse so far (on paper)

All the other team have done nothing of significance to sway one way or the other, so it looks like (on paper) our 2010 schedule does look to be pretty weak.

Saints should be heavy fav's against 8 teams...
Tampa (twice)
Carolina (twice, although some would argue losing Delhomme is an upgrade)
St Louis

The Saints should be slight favs against 5 more
San Fran (they will be tough)
Pittsburgh (in the dome)
Mnnesota (in the dome)
Atlanta (in the dome)

The Sainst are probably pick-ems or even slight underdogs against 3 more
@Dallas (in their house)
@Atlanta (gawd I hate saying that)

So if the spreads basically hold true, meaning we lose a couple we shouldn't and win a couple we shouldn't, we should finish around 12-4, 13-3

HFA once again my friends.....

This is one strength of schedule that looks pretty accurate, barring major injuries of course.
