We will be a losing team in 2020 no matter who our coach is with our schedule?

Our 2020 opponents:

Home:

Buccaneers, Panthers, Saints, Bears, Lions, Raiders, Broncos, Seahawks

Away:

Buccaneers, Panthers, Saints, Packers, Vikings, Chargers, Chiefs, Cowboys

 

Maybe we go 3-3 against our NFC South guys, but the away games at the Packers, Chiefs, and Vikings are probably losses as well as the Seahawks at home.  The only easy wins are maybe the Lions and Raiders at home.

I guess we can at least say we don't have to play the Eagles next year, but do we ever have an easy schedule?

Eh. Next year's schedule means nothing in December of the previous season.

Exactly. The NFL is a year to year league full of parity. We havnt had the draft, FA, injuries, coaching staff changes etc. Teams could look a lot different.

For example, Cowboys have 12 starters that may hit Free Agency and a new HC. They could look a lot different next year.

Is it me,, or do we seem to always get the hardest schedule every year.. I was kind of thinking maybe this time we may get a break,, NOT! This looks harder than this year... I don't think any other team has a schedule as hard as ours is next year,, And I felt the same way this year.. <_<

Well, Taints, Panties and Yucks all have to play the same teams minus SeaHags and Cowgirls

If we can just win 3 games out of these 6 teams,,  Chiefs, Vikings, Packers, Saints,  Seahawks , Chiefs, ,,,  Then we will make the playoffs next year.. But again,, this is a brutal schedule !!  AGAIN !!  :fuego:

Not really.   Every other team in our Division will have the same schedule except the two games where we play against a team that finished in the same place as we finished.   

The thing I have noticed is that it seems we get away games against the toughest opponents.   I know it's rotation, so it's just perception - but I swear it seems the Saints get the toughest opponents at home, lol!

Schedule looked pretty mild this season for the first half, remember?  Everyone was worried about the second half... not Tennessee, Indy or Arizona. 

So what happened?  We lost those and kicked a## in the tougher ones.   

So I wouldn't sweat next year because no one knows who's got what until about week five anyway.

Is it a monstrously hard road schedule? Yes, but I expect 4-2, perhaps 5-1 in the division, throw in at least 4 wins against these guys:  Rayduhs, Broncos, Lions, Bears, Seahawks and Chargers and we've already gotten to 8-9 wins. 

The real test is how many road wins do we get out of KC, GB, Dallas, and Minn. If we get two of those, we are at 10-11, which is usually in the magic number ball park. This year is a big outlier for records in the NFC. Expect most to come back a win or two.

If you can't beat good teams, your not winning it all anyway. I love watching every game. I enjoy every win! That said, as a fan, I've seen everything short of winning the Super Bowl. The Patriots prove that soft schedules help with homefield and byes. That is not a zero factor. However, you have to beat every team in front of you to win it all. Falcons can beat every team on that schedule. We all know under Quinn's leadership it's just about catching the positive mojo at the right time and limiting the losing binges.

You do realize that things change drastically every year.  Just because teams were good this year means nothing. 

Well, I'll have to disagree with this statement.. We can all call out the better teams in the NFL,, And they are consistent every year... The Falcons FO make a hugh mistake this year in Drafting two starting OL in the first round.. Fans can believe it or not,, But if we had went out and gotten proven VET OLman ,, and drafted Christian Wilkins and Ferrel from Clemson,, We'd be dancing with the teams in the playoffs this year.. But as the one liner in The INdiana Jones first movie sayes,, "He choose ,,Poorly ."

We did not play very good football for the majority of this season, and we still went 4-2 in the division. The Panthers have to rebuild with a new coach. There’s no telling what they are going to be next year. The Bucs have to decide what they are going to do with Winston. Brees is going to be 41 going on 42 next season. Even though he looked great this season, father time eventually catches up with all of us. There’s no telling for the Saints next season.

Fwiw, there’s no telling for us either. We are in cap ****. Glad we saved $12m in space with Grady and Ryan, but we still have a lot of work to do.

What you have to realize is that our division plays these same games as well.

I'm sure someone on a different team said...**** we have to play a healthy Falcons team this year....who knew we would be 7-9

LMAO saying that out loud is hilarious i honestly never heard someone say they are worried about playing the falcons (fans of other teams obviously not player) but still ...
