How much did our SOS change from August to December last year? This is definitely subject to change.

I love to see the Pats with a top 5 difficulty...8-8 at best next year!

Goodell has nothing to do with the schedule. Only two teams (each year) are actually determined by the previous years results. Everything else is scheduled well in advanced. I could tell you who 14 of your opponents are for the next 4 years with a simple and quick search.

You don't even need to a search for that actually. Schedules rotate every year which could pretty much be an idea as to whom they play the following year.


For example: For the 2009 season the AFC North have the AFC West and the NFC North. In 2010, they will more than likely have the AFC East and the NFC South and so on..

SOS is kinda of pointless rly with the w-l record changing evry week

What I meant was that with a quick search, I could tell you who you will be playing each year (because of the conference setup) for the next 4-5 years (and possibly longer.)

I know who we all have next year...but a quick search will tell me who we have in 2010, 2011, 2012.

Outside of the 14 guaranteed games, there are a grand total of 2 each year based on the previous season's results.

if the SOS is based off the previous seasons winning percentages, then why would it change?.. they were still saying up until the end of the season that the steelers had the toughest schedule last year..

One thing i dont understand is how the Bengals/Browns have a tougher schedule than the Steelers. :noidea:
We basically have the same schedule as our division except 2 games where seeding comes into play versus other afc divisions not on rotating schedule. So pitt would play the 1st place teams of AFC East and AFC South while Balt 2nd Cleve 3rd vand Cinci 4th.... so how the heck do Cinci / Cleve have a tougher stregth based on wins from previous year ?? No way the 4th place teams can have more wins.
Can someone answer this :noidea:

Thanks...

that is the same schedule we had after winning Super Bowl XL. we ended up 8-8. i hope we can remember that going into next season and hopefully Ben will stay off of motorcycles for the summer.

all kidding aside, this schedule is easy and it's going to be fun. i'm definitely making the trip to Pittsburgh when we play Oakland with my boy Zane and i'm making him wear his Raiders stuff! haha!

thins are tough all over for Cleveland and Cincinatti...i mean, they play US twice a year and they ARE the Browns and the Bengals. that right there is tough as a coffin nail to deal with! haha!

We no longer had the toughest schedule after we won most of our games. :chuckle:

Strength of schedule will change as the " in year schedule carries on all season according to how our opponents are doing during the season "
I think the Steelers schedule will end up tougher than alot of people think. I look for Cleveland to have a lot better season in '09 than last season and I also think that the Bengals offense should be back to their normal form after Palmer comes back healthy.

That is what they will move to in 2010. They play against all teams in a division outside of their own in conference every 3 years.
