Anyone else notice this?
 
The Saints play the Packers, Giants and 40-whiners after they play on MNF, so we get them on a short week!

I didn't notice, thanks!! But I did notice we got Green Bay in Green Bay again, I thought that should have been a home game for us since we played there last year. It is a tough schedule.

I guess because it was the season opener last season, the special circumstances might not warrant them to necessarily play at the Superdome.

I'm just glad it's early in the season.

I think it sucks that the Atlanta Monday night game is in Atlanta. Noon kickoffs for Falcons games are tough, no question there is a reeeeeal difference between a rowdy Dome crowd at a night game or a late game, versus the volume in the Dome at a noon game. A part of why the Saints are so much better during prime time games. Would be nice to have that advantage. Oh well.

Well, a tougher schedule means no excuses when we are successful. I like it. The tougher, the better.

Doesn't matter to me when we play whatever team... We'll beat them and prove that we're the better team and shove it up the NFL's a$$!!

We don't have the dreaded back to back to back road games this year either.

Our schedule is pretty good. We have 1 potential severe weather game (@Giants Dec 29).

Denver in late October may be cold, but not likely severe.

I haven't looked at our opponents bye weeks yet. Didn't we get hammered one year with 4 or 5 teams coming off of bye's playing us?

I'm just tired of all of these other "heads" saying that we don't play anyone, and that we always have a cake schedule. This year, they won't be able to say anything. Especially with the suspensions, and scandal hanging over us as well. When we are successful this season, it will shove it down everyone's throats.

Green Bay at Seattle
Chicago at San Francisco
NY Giants at Washington

could be a factor but the GB game i see as not that big of a deal.
the other 2? yeah i agree

seems like every other year for MNF- it's their trurn
and the crowd is overrated- 2 years ago when we needed the win for the WC spot fans were filing out before the game was even decided
