    Man it sucks this is only April!!, Looking at this i can see us going 5-0 heading into the bye week, would be great to be sitting at 8-0 when we go up against Indy.Definately a tough ride but doesn't look as bad as i thought now that it's on paper.Tomlin will have the boys ready.

    "He's running around there, running his mouth, doing all that, but if you watch him on film and really look, where was Ray Lewis? He was nowhere to be found. I could have tackled the water boy and had as many tackles as him. He didn't do nothing today. He's all mouth. When you talk like that, that's what happens: You get hit in the mouth. He's over there crying now, thinking about what went wrong. You got your *** whipped, that's what." ~ Peazy

    Easy, only 18% of your schedule is affected by your previous seasons record. If you finish 1st you must play all the other 1st place teams from the divisions within your conference. The rest is all pre-determined.

    6 games against division teams: 12-36 combined 2008 record

    4 games against the NFC West: 26-38 combined record

    4 games against the AFC West: 26-38 combined record

    Throw in the remaining 2 1st place teams from inner conference (Steelers and Colts) and you have a very easy schedule.

    Only 4 teams from last years play-offs on the schedule.

    The Pats will never live that cake-walk schedule down.

    Yeah, the predetermined teams that you play can really make or break a schedule... it just sucks that they've got it so easy but one thing is for sure, we'll be a lot more battle tested then they will be come December and January.
