How don't care for the NFL's 'system' on schedules...

We played at Arizona last year, seems like they should be headed this way...

Two potential cold weather games (@G'nats and @Arrowhead)...

Arrowhead is always a tough place to play...

Three West Coast games?!? C'mon!!! (@Cardinals, @SanDiego and @SanFran)

Want to know if our defense has improved, we'll find out against Rivers @SD; Rivers is one guy I'd love to see replace Brees when he retires...

We get the S'hawks here; wish we could get the Cardinal here...

...that way we could travel to Los Angeles and play in our white jerseys, black pants, always liked our success there!!!

It's been a loooooong time since the Los Angeles Rams played in the SuperDome...

Re: 2016 Saints Schedule

And we don't play well @G'nats stadium...

You think we could call in our "home" game from September 19, 2005 back from the New York Giants that we lossed 27–10 Giants Stadium and get the G'nats game played in the SuperDome?!?

Re: 2016 Saints Schedule

Defense is obviously got to improve. But just saying.

Anyway, we need to get at least 6 wins out of those two divisions. And beat the lions. That way 3-3 gets us to 10 wins. I think we can beat Denver, Oakland, and LA at home, Seattle is gonna be touch but we should beat them or SF, maybe, maybe after last year's effort, we could pull it out in Zona. I think we win one of those if not Seattle. But KC, we have to win here. We just have to. We probably cannot sweep Atlanta back to back, which means if we are going to go back to 5-1 in division, we have to sweep Carolina. Not likely to happen. I would not be surprised if we get them twice in three weeks.

Carolina has it good again, they get to play KC at home and probably will go 4-0 against the AFC West. They probably beat SF and Arizona and they got a third place schedule as their first place schedule with Washington and Minnesota. That's 8 wins before counting division games, which is probably 3-3, giving them 11.

So since I think NYG, GB, and Seattle win their divisions next year here's how I see the other teams doing for the two wild cards
East
Cowboys
Wins-Baltimore, @Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, @Minnesota, TB, NYG, @Philadelphia, @Washington
Losses-@Pittsburgh, @Green Bay, @SF, @NYG, Phialdelphia, Washington
9-7 and better conference record

Redskins
Wins-Cleveland, @Detroit, @Chicago, Minnesota, @Dallas, Philadelphia
Losses-Pittsburgh, vs.Cincinatti, @Baltimore, Green Bay, Carolina, @Arizona, @NYG, NYG, @Philadelphia, Dallas
6-10

Eagles
Wins-Pittsburgh, Cleveland, @Chicago, Atlanta, @Dallas, NYG, Washington
Losses-@Cincinatti, @Baltimore, Green Bay, Minnesota, @Detroit, @Seattle, Dallas, @Washington, @NYG
7-9

North
Chicago(their turn to contend with GB but unlucky year for them)
Wins-Jacksonville, @Indianapolis/Tennessee, @TB, @GB(week 17), Detroit, @Detroit, Minnesota
Losses-Tennessee/@Indianapolis, @Houston, Washington, Philadelphia, @Dallas, @NYG, SF, GB, @Minnesota
*Chicago hasn't been known to win the games they are supposed to win, and Tennessee is a game they are supposed to win and Indy supposed to lose but Indy has a tendency to lose a home game they shouldn't and Tennessee is a better road team than home team and have matched up well with QBs like Cutler on the road. Not even CJ's coaching could help us against Tennessee.
7-9

Detroit(no Megatron, won't be contending)
Losses-@Indianapolis, @Houston, Washington, @Dallas, @NYG, @NO, @GB, @Chicago, Chicago
At most 7-9

Minnesota will lose to Jacksonville, Indy, Houston, Washington, Dallas, Carolina. And they won't go 5-1 in division again, they should go 3-3 or worse. 7-9, 6-10, or 5-11

South
Atlanta
Wins-SD, @Denver, @Oakland, NO, Carolina, TB
Losses-KC, Arizona, SF, @Seattle, @LA, GB, @Philadelphia, @NO, @Carolina, @TB
6-10

TB
Wins-Oakland, @SD @SF, Carolina, @NO, Atlanta
Losses-Denver, @KC, Seattle, LA, @Arizona, Chicago, @Dallas, @Carolina, NO, @Atlanta
6-10

Arizona
Wins-NYJ, @Buffalo, @Miami, NO, TB, @Atlanta, Washington, Seattle, SF, LA
Losses-NE, @Carolina, @Minnesota, @Seattle, @SF, @LA
10-6. Want to win here? Take one of their wins away and we have them beat for the second wild card at 9-7

LA
Wins-Miami, Carolina, Atlanta, @TB, Seattle, Arizona, SF
Losses-Buffalo, @NE, @NYJ, @NO, NYG, @Detroit, @Seattle, @Arizona, @SF
7-9
*Rams get robbed of a home game vs giants and that helps giants

SF
Wins-NYJ, NO, @Atlanta, Dallas, @Chicago, Arizona, LA
Losses-NE, @Buffalo, @Miami, TB, @Carolina, Seattle, @Seattle, @Arizona, @LA
7-9

So 9-7 gets us in IF we can beat Arizona. 10 wins for sure if we beat them And Seattle.

If we get in we're having to go to Carolina in wild card(maybe giants giving us a second shot) before Green Bay, who I see as the top seed.

Re: 2016 Saints Schedule

Well, regardless of what happened last season...

We've got some serious frequent flyer miles with three west coast trips...

And playing the Chiefs, Andy Reid at their home is a tough slate...
