    Some of you guys have downplayed this to great lengths over the years, I've always been one to keep an eye on this type of stuff and how it correlates with possible success/failure such as last years fairly easy schedule. Next year will be no joke. 4th hardest schedule in the NFL. Better get that OLine shored up ASAP!

    Any chance we could get that ref from the Saints vs Rams game?

    It's true, we don't know what we don't know. Each team is new every year. We don't know how good or bad the Panthers are going to be. & our whole division is a crap shoot every year.

    Still it does mean something.

    Vegas has us winning 8.5 games, the Colts (& their vastly superior OL) at 9.5

    It's going to be an interesting season.

    In other words, nothing new in your opinion?

    Yup just like last years cakewalk SOS suddenly became a more difficult course to manage as teams found themselves and performed BUT there were still some grapefruits thrown in there that wont be there this year. Yes the year has to start and teams have to jockey for position, but even a casual glance at the schedule next year doesnt inspire warm fuzzy's .. but it may be Bill OBriens REdemption Song, or the sad tune of TAPS at the end of the year. I would say its another Buttchin Special .. 9-7 and probably a 10 year extension cuz "he did so good with the hardest schedule we need to lock him up for life" LOL

    With bye weeks and extra rest, schedule helps the Lions, hurts the Patriots
    Posted by Michael David Smith on April 17, 2019, 9:20 PM EDT


    Nothing we learned when the schedule was released this evening told us anything we didn’t already know about how easy or hard any team’s slate of opponents is, because we already knew every team’s home and road opponents. But we did learn one way in which the schedule-makers helped the Lions and hurt the Patriots.

    That is in rest days, where the Lions will have an NFL-best 12 more rest days than their opponents over the course of the season, while the Patriots will have an NFL-worst 13 fewer rest days than their opponents, according to Brian Burke of ESPN.

    That’s primarily because the Lions never play an opponent coming off a bye, while the Patriots play three games against opponents coming off their byes. The Lions also benefit from extra rest before playing at Minnesota, after their annual Thanksgiving home game.

    Other teams that got favorable schedules from a rest perspective include the Chargers, Buccaneers, Panthers and Bills. Teams that got unfavorable schedules include the Dolphins, Eagles, Packers and 49ers.

    &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

    The Texans evidently fall into the middle-of-the-road category.

    Toughest 2019 NFL schedules: Eagles, Broncos have hard roads

    [Worth reading in its entirety........but an interesting excerpt of this article]

    Indianapolis Colts

    Starting the season with back-to-back road games is always a bummer. The Colts have to do it against the Chargers and Titans, two teams they could be battling with for playoff positioning. The Colts' schedule is imbalanced because they'll face so many of their toughest opponents -- the Chargers, Chiefs, Steelers and Saints -- on the road.

    Titans at 11-5, no way. They lose to the Chargers, Texans, and Browns where they have them as wins. Their Quarterbacking is average at best. Sorry, don't see it, but it won't matter if we cannot beat the Colts

    I can see the Colts taking the division, can't see the Titans over 10 wins though. Indy may be the only team in the AFC South to win 10 or more this season.

    If the Titans can stay healthy, they should be dangerous with the additions during the offseason that they made: Saffold, Humphries, Wake, Tannehill.

    Last year, even with all the injuries, they still won 9 while losing 2 by a SINGLE point.

    11 wins isn't too far-fetched an idea.

    I think it depends on how often good Mariota shows up. If he's at all worried about Tannehill, which he shouldn't be, he may try to play when he shouldn't & make things worse. I like the kid, the talent. Just don't think he's mentally tough.

    Let's see, the jags added a SB winning QB. Titans and colts were solid last year with 1st yr head coaches. Do they move forward as coaches??? Good chance.

    OB???
