In its Tuesday news release, the NFL included strength of schedule for all 32 teams and New Orleans comes in tied at No. 2, its opponents carrying a .539 winning percentage in 2012.
In other words, it’s a good thing Sean Payton, king of the little things that win games, is back in the fold for the Saints.
New Orleans’ opponents went 137-117-2 a season ago (the two ties being the 49ers and Rams 24-24 November game). Seven of New Orleans’ 16 games this season are against opponents who were .500 or better in 2012 and five games will played against teams that made the playoffs (twice against Atlanta, Seattle, San Francisco, New England).
Only Carolina has a tougher schedule percentage-wise.

Yeah but this is based off Tuesday's news release directly from the NFL of the strength of schedules so it probably carries a lot more weight.

Strength of schedule is a severly flawed stat. One or two teams on the extreme can skew the SOS significantly.

Not much difference in a 6 win team and a 2 win team. But 4 wins can skews SOS

We play 5 or 6 really good teams, and so does everyone else.

We win games no one expects us to win all the time.

Problem is we have a knack for losing a few we should win going away too.

We should be favored in every game but @New England, @Atlanta, @Seattle and maybe @Chicago.

Using last years rankings makes this a fairly useless statistic. I juries, new players, losing players, etc. changes all of that.

That's a lot of data to crunch ... I pay a lot of attention to the +.500/-.500 stat in regards to last season standings, current standings, how-a-team-performs-against, et... when picking games. It's not the only factor, but it carries a lot of weight.

... 11 wins seemed like a good number, :mrgreen:.

Second in SOS, yet the NFC South is one of the weaker divisions?!?
