and bottom loaded with divisional games .

Then a tough stretch of games weeks 7-11, 4 of 5 on the road. Could see us staying up in the northeast after the NE game like we stayed on the west coast last year.

Would not be shocked to see a trend similar to last year. Hot start (5-0), mid-season slump (3-2/2-3 from weeks 6-11), Hot finish (5-1).

No cold weather games outside of a slim chance vs. Seattle. 10 on the fast tracks of Domes. I like our chances.

Yeah, I was concerned about the cold weather games. Looks like we dodged that bullet other than possibly Seattle as you said.

Chicago is the most boring opening game that we could have had.

We should have been in prime time week 1 opening the new stadium.

Yeah, what happened to us on the first Sunday night game against Dallas or Green Bay?

I get having dallas and nyg on sunday night.

No reason that we should not have played the packers or a division game.

Falcons and Saints monday night is always a winner in terms of quality of a game

If I had to predict the schedule now:

1- @ Bears: W
2- vs. Packers: W
3- @ Lions: W
4- vs. Bills: W
6- vs. Dolphins: W
7- @ Patriots: W (revenge game)
8- @ Jets: W
9- @ Panthers: L (don't like where it falls on the schedule)
10- vs. Cowboys: W
11- @ Seahawks: L (Monday and at the end of a brutal stretch)
12- vs. Bucs: L (TATF unravels)
13- vs. Vikings: W
14- vs. Saints: W
15- @ Bucs: W 
16- @ Saints: W
17- vs Panthers: W

13-3. Could see a few other games that we drop (Dolphins, Patriots, Vikings to name a few you might not think of)

This was the most bland mixed schedule. It's like they saw we had to play the AFC East and just put them somewhere and the same with the NFC North. We literally play the entire AFC East in 4 straight week. We play three of four of the NFC North to start the season. Then OH! We need them to play their division! Stuff em all at the end. That'll be interesting!

Poor scheduling job for the NFC Champs. Whatever. 12-4/13-3 in bound.

5 nationally televised games not counting Dallas at 4:25 on Sunday afternoon. 2 on Sunday Night, 2 on Monday Night, and 1 on Thursday night, which is against the Saints at home after playing in their place in prime time the past 2 years I believe.

I know the official Bye week is early but keep in mind, we have a Mini Bye between week 14 and 15 with the Thursday night Game Vs. the Taints. 

That will give us a little breather plus, we play at home that Sunday before and do not have to travel so that helps too.

Yeah it seems very thrown together.

We stay healthy and I think the 12-4 is where we land

C'mon man. Pats went four weeks with out Brady last year. I think we can handle an early bye.:lol: Have some faith bro!

sure they can handle it but it's also nice to have a mid/late season BYE so that any accumulating/nagging injuries can be rested w/o potentially missing any games (esp when 5 of the last 6 games are division games)
