Here's why strength of schedule is misleading..

Which division would you like to play?

Division A which finished...
9-7
9-7
8-8
8-8

Or

Division B which finished
11-5
11-5
11-5
0-16

Strength of schedule says Division B is the weaker of the two, but I'd say its the strongest.

Looks like we got a break with the schedule this year. Estimated at 29 on strength of schedule VS passing, running, and points against. We might actually pull this off.

Last year we played 10 teams 8-8 or better, and 6 teams 7-9 or worse

This year we'll play 10 teams 8-8 or better, and 6 teams 7-9 or worse.

Ain't scared.

They face who they face - no team is invincible.

That is none of the current teams, because I didn't mean any disrespect to the '72 Dolphins.

Yeah, the schedule makers are the same guys who use to run the college game until the SEC teams started tearing new ones in the BCS Championships...

It always takes the Giants half a season to get hot also, so bad timing there too.

The Saints played at Green Bay last season because the schedule fell that way (the NFC South played the NFC North). They play at Green Bay this season because the division winners play division winners. The 49ers (NFC West winners) play at the Saints. The Giants (NFC East winners) played at the Saints last season. So either the Giants play at the Saints two years in a row, or the Saints play at the Packers two years in a row. See below why the NFL schedule makers chose to have the Saints play at GB two seasons in a row

The last season the NFC South played the NFC East (2009), the Saints played at Philadelphia and at Washington, and played NY Giants and Dallas at home. So this go around, Philadelphia and Washington play at the Saints, and the Saints play on the road at NY Giants and Dallas.
