At least we didn't end up getting screwed hard on the schedule like Tampa Bay and Oakland did. 6 game stretch not being at home. I would be outraged over that if I were a Raiders or Bucs fan.

You really think Tampa or Oakland are going to be contenders this year? Compare our schedule to the final four, eight teams last year...

Better still, compare our schedule to Goodell's Preferred Teams - Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Baltimore, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh...

Biggest Contrast - Look how many 2018 Playoff teams these guys get at home vs our Saints; also, notice the placement of the away games plus the distance traveled...

We don't have a game in London or Mexico which is a huge plus, something that one of those teams you listed has to deal with (Bears have a London game, while the Chargers and Chiefs play in Mexico; two playoff teams from last year). We don't have to travel anywhere for a cold weather game late in the season.

If they really wanted to screw us hard, they would've made the Seattle and Chicago road games in November or December. I know the general consensus among us as Saints fans is that Roger Goodell is moving heaven and earth to screw us, but if that's true, he's doing a poor job at it with this schedule.

It's a division winning schedule. We were always going to have a tough schedule based off that. We don't get the luxury of playing in the AFC South, AFC East or NFC East which are truly bad divisions. Last year's schedule looked tough as nails for the same reason that it was a division winning schedule.

The only stretch of the schedule I have a real beef with, is after the bye week we have 4 consecutive divisional games with Atlanta twice in the mix. This is the toughest stretch cause we have no idea how those games will go. No matter how bad Tampa, Carolina or Atlanta may be, I am sure they'll save their best game for us.

That's my concern with the schedule is that HOU game at home becomes a trap game with players thinking ahead about LA, staying out there a week, then SEA in that freaking zoo - we're loud, they're Philly-crazy...

Playing in Old Mexico is not that bad because you're not dealing with jet lag/time zone issues as you were in England; and that's if they even play there...

And that Bears game is a true AWAY game, a Raiders Home game, and they get a week off AFTER that match BEFORE playing, you guessed it - The Saints...

True - players, coaches will have to just suck it up, but, Nope, it's still F'you scheduling by the league - there's a body of evidence since the Bountygate Beatdown and there's no denying it...
