The Pats have the weakest opponents in 2012, I guess the 4th weakest last year was too tough for Goodell's bedroom buddies. Pats fans argue that you never know how tough the schedule might be because some teams are surprising from year to year, which is true, but this s**t is getting old.

I'm pretty sure they had a top five easiest schedule every year they won the super bowl.

i enjoy bashing the cheats as much as the next guy , but suggesting that some kind of scheduling fraud is being perpetrated between the cheats and goodell means you are just uneducated on how the schedule is formulated. for example , 12 of the 16 opponents for next year , the year after, and so on are already determined. the other 4 opponents are determined by where you finish in your division.

Actuall 14 of the 16 opponents are determined well in advance, only 2 games are determined by place in division. The AFC East all fared poorly other than NE last year so of course their schedule strength will be pretty weak looking.

Someone wasn't paying attention in school.

I guess the question is: who were the two teams that the Cheats drew based on their 1st place standing?

Edit: They drew Denver and the Rats. That's not exactly collusion or favoritism on the part of Goodell. The OP isn't making a great case for Steeler Nation here.
