Just no winless or 1-2 win teams. Colts game withstanding, the Saints are simply awful against those "weaker" teams. I'd prefer to play the "stronger" teams the rest of the way. My sanity can't handle another Rams game.

Pat Yasinkas is an idiot....We learned the hard way that W-L percentage is absolutely no way to judge tie difficulty of a game.

True, and total win percentage is a faulty stat. Really bad or really good teams skew the stats.

Which is really more difficult on paper,

Playing 3 teams whose records are 1-9, 7-3, 7-3 = 50% winning percentage
Or
Playing 3 teams whose records are 9-1, 3-7, 3-7 = 50% winning percentage

Both have 50% win percentage, but 1 shedule has two tough teams and a weak one and the other has one tough team and two weak teams (on paper).

All I need to know is that the Saints will be favored in every game after this Sunday, and if they play well, they'll win all of them.

Further to Danno's post above:

I think this tells us more about who has hardest schedule (even if I don't know how they worked it out)

Strength of Schedule is the cousin of Power Rankings.
The gayer, dumber cousin.
