11 of our 16 opponents were .500 or worse last season
I was just checking the schedule again and really couldn't help but notice how easy it is. I mean, I thought it was when it was first announced way back when but most of these teams really didn't improve much at all in the offseason. We may have the easiest sched in the NFL (or close). This is a schedule that gives us a serious chance at a playoff spot.
Even if we blow a couple of those, we'll probably win 1 game we're not supposed to. We could go 9-7 or 10-6 with this sched and not even be that great of a team. AFC is so weak outside the top teams that hard to believe 9-7 wouldn't get at least 6 seed and 10 wins would basically guarantee a spot.
I've been pessimistic at times, thought I'd make a positive thread :D
