If you want to win the Super Bowl you have to beat good teams. This schedule will be a good warm up for the post season.

No it means absolutely diddly poo. Teams change over the off season. Some go up and some go down, we won't know how hard our schedule is until we actually play the game (unfortunately)

That's what happens when two divisions meet that only have one team below 7-9. Notice that the NFC East is also all in the top 10.

Exactly right. Teams even change over the course of a season. Take the Jets for example. At the beginning of this season, after the Texan's game, the Jets looked like Superbowl contenders and Mark Sanchez was being talked about as an early Pro Bowl candidate, or possibly a candidate for rookie of the year. By the middle of the season, the Jets were in the middle of a serious losing streak, and there was talk in New York of hanging Rex Ryan from the highest tree. On the last week of the season, the Jets snuck into the playoffs, and due to their defense, appear to be a legitimate wild card contender.

So, teams change a lot from one season to the next, but they also change a lot within a season. This metric is interesting, but it is not conclusive of anything.

In 2008, the Steelers had the toughest NFL schedule... They won their division and eventually the Superbowl. In 2009, they had the 7th easiest and didn't make the playoffs with almost the identical squad.

Man, I go so SICK of hearing people talk about the Jets after the first few games. People basically said that Rex Ryan was a genius and Mark Sanchez was the best quarterback ever and that we should just give them the Lombardi Trophy.

I, personally, never bought any of it, because as good as Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez appeared to be, there's always a learning curve in the NFL for new people. You may hit that curve sooner, you may hit that curve later, but you WILL hit it.

We always hit it in November.

Let me guess, our 2010 schedule has us playing The Dolphins or did the NFL finally give that up?

True, but when I am looking at the core of the tough teams we're going to be playing I don't see too many of the teams having a fire sale next year and falling off.

Colts - Well until Peyton hands em up they won't likely finish worse than second.
Titans - Much as it pains me to say so. They'll be just as tough next season. Maybe even more.
Jax - Unless they get relocated in the off-season they'll play tough and will have a more experienced team on the OL.

Dallas - Will be tough next year and defense looks better with Spencer stepping up his play.
Eagles - Will be tough and I believe we have them on the road as well
Giants - I hear Dick Jauron is in line to take the DC job there. Whe nthey get healthy they'll be tough.
D.C. - While they did finish the year what 4-12? I think they'll be much better next year. Wouldn't surprise me to see to Sam Bradford as their #1 pick. What's going to be interesting is the familiarty between the staffs.

Jets - Still not sold on Sanchez, but doesn't matter they havea solid run game and a great defense. At least they won't have al ltheir picks to improve through the draft next year.

Baltimore - Will still have Ray and Ed on defense. Flacco took a step forward again this year, at least statistically, and if they get hima big target in the draft they'll be more dangerous.

I know this is projecting, but still don't like the way it lines up for us considering the staff fumbled and bumbled its way into a 9-7 season with a weak schedule. Perhaps some of you have more confidence in them then I do.

Since Kubiak has been here we've done fairly well against teams that do not play in our division (going 8-2 this year against such teams).

Personally, I don't care who we're playing outside of the division. If we don't win our division games we'll be watching the playoffs as usual instead of playing in them.

And there it is. That is the bottom line. If we don't improve in our division we are screwed.
