In terms of winning %age, SOS never looks the same at the end of the season as it does at the beginning.
We also play the jags twice & the Titans twice and for the first time they (as ) as the Colts are quantifiably worse than we are. We should sweep the division this year. Never before has that been the case. I know we say it all the time. But it's never been as true as it is now.
I know the SOS isn't a very accurate representation of the teams we're going to face in 2012 however it's just as accurate as saying we''ll be fielding the #2 defense. Apples to apples, this is the easiest schedule we''ve started a year against. The only reason we think it's tough is we expect the Bears, Lions, and Jets to be better than they were in 2011
