Re: Schedule released on 4/23

I'm predicting a curve ball in the schedule, the Saints will open on the road against Tampa...because if Tampa drafts Jameis Winston, the NFL are going to want to make it easy for him and Lovie Smith, and it would benefit Jameis the most to face the Saints' new defense at home early in the season, without any film on him, and before the Saints' new defensive players have had a chance to gel together ... barring injury ,week 1 is probably the weakest the Saints will be defensively and offensively all year, so I think that's when they will give Tampa a crack at us.

I just have a weird feeling or hunch that the divisional schedule is going to be manipulated and tilted this year, to favor Tampa whenever possible -- short weeks for opponents, give them their difficult games at home, scheduling opponents as trap games or during long road stretches against them, etc. In the past, the league has greased the schedule in favor of Atlanta for years, with no results, it hasn't worked, so I think pending the addition of Jameis Winston, this is the year they shift their focus to building up Tampa Bay by giving them the easy breaks.

Calling it now... Our games at Washington and at Philly will be in December. Not that we can't win in the cold or anything like that but you know what the NFL is thinking.

The messed up thing is last season we played better in cold conditions than we did in the dome.

November and December games - Vs Steelers and Bears, we dominated both.

Only reason Saints dominated Steelers was due to using Graham as a decoy. Bears defense just flat out sucked, every team was dominating them so I wouldn't put some stock into either game

The myth the Saints cant win in the cold was put to bed in Philli in the wild card game two years back. Who cares who and when we play. Looking for conspiracies is looking for excuses

I'm not looking for excuses.......and I'm not paranoid. But I do believe in NFL conspiracies. I don't think it's foolish in the least when you look back at our scheduling in the past.

I realize that this would not be easy for them to keep under wraps for long and one of these days it will surface that Godhell is playing favorites.
