Will they lose? They have one of the best, gift wrapped schedules in the league. The only tough games they have, they get at home (not including the game in Atlanta). I just hope by the time we play them our defense is clicking in the backfield. I do believe they will have their hands full with our offense but if we can't pressure Brees, it could get ugly.

They play the AFC EAST 4 games, the Falcons play the AFC EAST 4 games

They play the NFC EAST 4 Games, the Falcons play the NFC EAST 4 games

They play the Bucs 2 times, the Falcons play the bucs 2 times

They play Carolina 2 times, the Falcons play Carolina 2 times

They play Atlanta 2 times, the Falcons play N>O> 2 times

12 games identical

2 against each other

only 2 games different

Does having the Falcons make their schedule easy?

LOL, with all the B!tchin about our tough schedule, New Orleans plays the exact same schedule minus 2 games. This is ridiculous.

Although I do believe that when we play them, one, or both, of the games could easily become the highest scoring games in NFL history. The defenses should probably not even bother coming to the stadium those days.

I could definitely see this

Not ridiculous to realize that going forward, they have a much easier schedule.

Their four remaining road games outside the division are not that tough relatively speaking (WAS, MIA, BUF, STL), while we have five tough road games left (NE, DAL, NYG, NYJ, SF).

They play the Lions(W) and @Rams while we play the Bears and @Niners.

They play NE, NYG, and DAL at home; we play those three teams on the road.

We have eight more road games; they have seven.

They easily have a more favorable schedule than us now, and that's going to make it harder for us to win the NFC South. Even if we're better than them, they have a huge scheduling advantage and could win the division due to that reality. If that happens, then we're playing on the road if we make the playoffs.

Anything can happen, but now it's an uphill climb for the Falcons. Having them win their road game vs Philly makes it tougher for us now.

We play the same schedule except 2 games? Whats the difference on paper ours is harder, but they still have to go thru the same meat grinder of the AFC East and the NFC east. Thats bad enough.

The hardest games that New Orleasns has, is us and carolina because divisional is always hard, The jets and Giants, New England and Dallas. If you don't think the Saints aren't going to have fun with their next game against the jets, your blind, The jets defense is like the Ravens defense 2.0 They are going to make Brees life he-ll :P

They have the Giants, Cowboys, Patriots, and Jets at home. We are the road team for all of those matchups. That's a pretty glaring difference there. The extra two games thrown in, St. Louis and Detroit (combined 1 victory last year). Us Bears and Niners, not stellar teams, but tough outs both of them. We also have Chicago, @Dallas, Washington, & @Giants, off of bye weeks. We have a difficult schedule, believe it.

It's a huge disadvantage to have games like the Giants, Cowboys, and Patriots in your home stadium if you lose them.

Started off with a high school team (Detroit)

Played the Eagles without McNabb, or Vick for that matter.

NY Jets, NY Giants, New England, Dallas are at home for the Aints!

Their away schedule includes Buffalo, St. Louis, Washington, Tampa, Atlanta, Carolina, Miami.

We have to go to New England, San Fran, Dallas, New Orleans, Carolina, NY Jets, NY Giants, Carolina, Tampa.

At home we have Chicago, Philly, Washington, Buffalo, NFC South.

I don't see how you could compare.

We only have two uncommon games.

And as you can hopefully see now, that's definitely not the whole point or argument.

And even if that was the only real difference, it would still be a very big advantage for them considering that the uncommon games are Lion(W) and @Rams, while ours are Bears and @Niners. A 1-game difference in wins and losses is huge in a 16-game schedule.

We need to be much better than them, on the field, to win the division. If our teams are about equal or close to it, then they have a nice scheduling advantage going forward.
