How do we get one of the hardest schedules twice in a row? I really don't care because I see us crushing every team next year but it's not right because this year our SOS decided the difference between us being the 11th pick and 15th pick in the draft. Hopefully next year it won't matter because we will be the 32nd pick regardless.

Broncos have the easiest schedule and it has a lot to do with the division they play in.

Strength of schedule is great if it actually predicted what would happen in the upcoming season.

This is such a pointless exercise at this stage of the off-season. No one knows what any team is going to look like.

Isn't there a scheduling formula that pretty much decides who you play every year? Luck of the draw that we received a rough schedule two years in a row.

Maybe as of right now. But things change drastically from year to year.

I really don't care as long as we have our head coach back.

Atlanta Falcons .504 128-126-0

Ha! I'm saying that 504 can't be a coincidence. And it can't be good for Atlanta.

Truth don't know why this got thumbs downed. But that SOS is based upon their 2012 record, it's going to look different by the end of the 2013 season.

for the record though I do think we have a pretty tough going next season, we have the NFC West the new powerhouse Division with physical Defenses in it, and our other two Conference games are Chicago on the road (always some demons for us there), and the Giants who are always a pretty competitive team lately. We kind of lucked out with the AFC opponents as the East has Miami, Buffalo, and the Jets all teams under going a rebuilding process; the Patriots are really the only Out of Conference opponent to worry about IMO.
