Two things I liked right off the bat:

1) Only really possible cold game is at the Titans on Dec 11th.

2)Two home games against division opponents to close the season.

Glad they finally host Chicago too rather than having to travel to Soldier field. Seems like the last 10 games against them have all been on the road!

Halo that's going to change Sept 8th. Who says thing can't change. No team has ever loss all 3 games to end the regular season and won the SB until the Saints. We change history and I believe we will be the first team to beat the defending champs on thursday night. Who Dat!!!!

Call me crazy, but my initial thoughts are that I like this schedule. Granted, opening up @ Green Bay is a doozy, but Payton & Brees will have us ready. Also seems like Payton's good at bucking trends (in our favor) like no SB winning team ever losing opening day.

Aren't most Thursday night games difficult, due to the shortened week? If so, that's one good thing about the Green Bay game, and it's the only Thursday game we have all season.

The bye week is really late. I don't think we've ever had one as late as week 11. I guess you never know how that will play out, but it seems like that should play to our favor.

Definitely a good thing that we don't have any Real late season, outdoor stadium/weather concerns, besides Minnesota. And isn't mid December still relatively early?

Lot of teams on the schedule, that I look at as a question mark. But, it seems like every year, there are plenty of games that no one knows what kind of team we will face (Tampa bay last year). At least I don't see Pittsburg, New England, or Baltimore. And, at least we have Indy and da Bears at home!!

All I know is I'm damn happy to finally see the schedule. I really couldn't care less who we play, rather if and when we play.
