Technically, the schedule is easier than last year.
I understand people are looking at Seattle as if they are a good team. But we don't know that. They had a good season last year, but just as likely to struggle next year. They haven't shown the ability to put back to back seasons together in quite some time.
KC, StLouis, they might be alright, but what are the odds?
I think you are shortchanging Seattle quite a bit. They have bolstered their defense & offense this offseason & that was after they made a very decent playoff run. Their defense is underrated by most & their offense added Harvin. Wilson is very mobile & the Texans have had their fair share of struggles w/ mobile qb's. I realize names don't make a team a winner, but Carroll has turned this team around quickly & they very much seem to be on the rise. I think they are a team to be reckoned with & overlooking them could be a mistake IMO. Seattle w/out a doubt in my mind makes our schedule a bit tougher.
