...and the other AFC West Teams, we deserve it after this year's schedule. All I know is that it's going to be a long f-ing offseason, but I'm really looking forward to next year. Facing the NFC East on top of playing our rivals was tough this year, unfortunately we missed the playoffs, and we could have been in them, but you can't complain with a 10-6 record, if Pitt and Jax had the same schedule, we'd be in the playoffs.

I'd really like to agree with you on this but the schedule isn't always the thing.

Please reference the 2005 St. Louis Rams and their strength of schedule, which was the easiest in the NFL and then look at their record.

Nuff said.

Without Vermeil we're doomed.

7-9 next year.

I don't think anyone here is suggesting that. The bottom line is, a schedule may look nice from the outside but in reality, sometimes it's a lot tougher than it appears, due to various factors. Injuries, talent upgrade/downgrade, etc.

Agreed, but comparing this year's schedule to next year's...which one would you take?

That depends. Do I have a healthy offensive line and no running back by committee? If I had those things this year, I believe the point would be moot and we would be sitting pretty in the playoffs.

The only thing I care about in regards to schedule is how many back-to-back road games the league sticks us with next year.

How bout our first three divisional matchups all being away games? That kinda sucked. :shake:

That stacks up very nicely. We get three creampuffs on the road where we need the most help and most of the hard matchups are at home.

I didn't mind that. The payoff came in December.

We didn't take advantage.

Au contraire, yourself.

I said, "I don't think anyone here is suggesting that."

By here, I meant, on THIS thread. Best I can tell, r8er_h8er hasn't posted on THIS thread, yet.

3 of those 4 teams could be decent if not playoff-caliber next year...you never know.
