[QUOTE]Rex is talking $h!t about being better, meanwhile the Patriots have the 6th over all most difficult schedule and the Jets have $ucked out of 3 of their last 4. Here's the Strength of Schedule for 2010 with the records for each team as of today. Based on this only the Eagles are really worth mentioning in the top 10. The Jets schedule was middle of the road this year (16th overall) at best.. The only thing I can really credit them for is the road wins. We still have GB and and Chicago coming, but we have played a much tougher lineup this year so far, and we are right there leading the league. The Jets have Pittsburgh and Chicago after us. Competition usually dictates injuries and the record... I say bring it on.... T1. Texans (4-6) T1. Titans (5-5) 3. Cowboys* (3-8) 4. Bengals* (2-9) 5. Jaguars (6-4) 6. Patriots* (9-2) 7. Giants (6-4) 8. Redskins (5-5) 9. Eagles* (7-3) T10. Browns (3-7) T10. Colts* (6-4) T16. Jets* (9-2)

I don'y buy into this Strength Of Schedule garbage. It's based off LAST season's results, before the draft, before trades, before training camps open, before the first "boo-boo owie" happens, before the first season ending injury in week #1 of camp occurs, before the first nationasl media wore latches onto a "chic" pick to win the SB, and well before the annual "Will Brett Favre retire this time around?" pool opens up.
I can see your point if this mythical Strength of Schedule is used in factoring in this season's final results, as if "handicapping" (a team gets "X" amount of popints if their SOS is in the top 5, 2nd 5, etc... and LOSE "Y" points if it's in teh bottom 5, bottom 10, etc). Otherwise, it's a debatable number, but is as irrelevent as the number of Big Games Gomer's gakked a hairball on. What happens on the field speaks for itself.
Do you think this SOS has anything to do with the 'Boys stinking it up in Dallas? Or how the Bengals are more like pussycats that have been declawed and neutered? OK, say you do. Then please explain the Bills and Panthers this year. PLEASE!
