Iím not sure I should have bothered typing/coding this chart.
Itís the 2009 strength of schedule based on records in the 2008 season.

Except the N.F.L. doesnít work that way. Coaching staffs are fired and hired; rosters are overhauled via free agency and the draft; systems are scrapped and redesigned; motivations wax and wane; and major injuries occur in camp, preseason and the regular season. The Dolphins went from 1-15 to 11-5. Would anyone be shocked if they finished third or last in the A.F.C. East this season?

Nevertheless, itís a starting point for looking at next season (do you want a Brett Favre post instead?).
Among those teams having the toughest schedules, strictly based on 2008, are the Jets (No. 7) and the Giants (No. 10).


15. Houston Texans .506

i never put much into the "strength" b/c they dont tell you anything. Look at Miami they won one game 2 years ago then they kicked some ass last year (Not ours tho :kingkong:). That alone would mess up the ratings. This is the pros ever team has a decent chance to beat any other team
