Strength of Schedule

I knew our schedule seemed hard and Seattle's was definately easy, but I didn't know how disparate they actually are. On Cold Pizza this morning they pointed out that Washington had the second toughest schedule in the league whereas Seattle's was ranked 32nd. Plus, we had the hardest schedule of all teams still in the playoffs.

I know you play who's on the schedule and all that, but we have to feel good knowing that we are by far the more battle tested team.

Re: Strength of Schedule

We could never get that easy of a schedule especally playing in the east. If we could look out undefeated season. Thats how the colts won so much also. What was there strength?

Re: Strength of Schedule

I've been screaming this fact at Nah sayers around me.

Them and the Bears had the easy teams to play. That's ended.

Hail Skins

Re: Strength of Schedule

Here is the strength of schedule as reported on NFL.com:



http://www.nfl.com/standings/conference

What is also interesting is the Strength of Victory. Washington is tied with San Diego for "most convincing wins" this season. It's not just "who" you played, but who you beat. Alas, Seattle is again....LAST.

Re: Strength of Schedule

Finally a sports show that points out the fact that our schedule was much harder than Seattle's, for the last 4 days ESPN has conviently ignored that. By the way, I almost feel bad for Marty and the Chargers, they played some tough teams, and almost won alot of their games.

Re: Strength of Schedule

The Seahawks may be overrated, but they are still a very dangerous team. Alexander is a dangerous back who plays with power, vision, deceptive speed, and agility. Hasselbeck does a good job of spreading the ball around, making smart and accurate throws, and getting wins. Their defense has improved by leaps and bounds. In sum, let's not underestimate them simply because the media is overestimating their capabilities.

Re: Strength of Schedule

Random thoughts on NFL scheduling

An NFL schedule is comprised as follows:

Division Games: 6
Games against another division in the same conference: 4
Games against teams from the other two divisions in same conference that finished in the same position within that division as your team: 2
Games against a division from the other conference: 4

Next year we get:

NFC South, AFC South, Minnesota and St Louis? (2nd place in NFC North/West)

Its basically tough to catch an easy schedule unless you play in a weak division because it is unlikely that both the inter and intra conference division games will be against weak divisions. For example, this year we drew the NFC West (EASY) and the AFC West (HARD). Next year we play AFC South (AVERAGE) and the NFC South (AVERAGE). We were also unlucky this year in that although we were last in our divisionin 2004 (tiebreakers), our two random games (Tampa, Chicago) which should have been easy, wound up being against division champs. The whole conference was basically inverted.

Questionidn't we defeat Seattle the last four times we met? Wasn't Hasselbeck and Springs the stars of the team when we beat them? Of course they were, which is why the pressure is on them to beat us. Quite frankly, Mike Holmgren can not out coach Joe Gibbs and Greg Williams. Just too much experience. We win this one decisively by at least 10 points. Check out the scores when we played teams the second time this year. No game under 7 points.

Re: Strength of Schedule

i didnt realize we were up 42 games in SoS over the next guy in the NFC playoffs...

I said earlier though that even 6-10 this year would be a vast improvement since the schedule was insane... 10-6 with two heart wrenching losses thrown on the roids and a playoff win... well, that's just amazing

The Bears at least beat Tampa on the road and manhandled the Panthers....Seattle hasn't done anything of note...they've played like 10 teams with 10 or more losses.

Re: Strength of Schedule

if you look at all their games they beat 2 winning teams and that was the falcons and the g-men and they really aren't that good of teams. they beat the colts but that was because the colts sat all their players, so really they haven't played anyone this season in my eyes. We have to take the crowd of it early just as we did in tampa
