Fassel is (was) one of the most overrated coaches in the NFL.

Not surprised, but it was nice this year not to have to worry about the Giants in the NFC East. Now if only the Eagles would disappear.

And besides firing Fassel, they need to put honey or something very sticky on Tiki Barber's gloves...maybe then he won't fumble everytime he gets the ball.

I agree. He had one good year in '97 and everyone fell in love with him.

they only went to the super bowl for the same reason every other super bowl team in the NFL does; the easy schedule. They played the easy schedule, got into the playoffs, and got hot at the right time. The NFL is so crappy. The unbalanced schedule makes pretty much each team, an every other year team.

Well then, it's damn if you do and damn if you don't in sports. If people don't like the NFL because it has every other year teams, then baseball gets put down the drain too cause it's the same teams with all the power. Sure, the Angels won and the Marlins won the past two years, but I guess they "got into the playoffs and got hot at the right time."

Football and baseball are on two opposite ends of the spectrum...people find their gripes in both. There's always somethin' to be unhappy about. :cry:

let's see...
The Cubs are contenders again.
The Diamondbacks built a team
the Dodgers are consistent each season
the padres have built a team
the angels built a team again
the A's built their team through their farm system
the White sox are decent
the Phillies are big time contenders
the Blue Jays are rebuilding, and have kept Delgado around

These aren't even the powerhouse teams. They're teams that have either been recently built, or stay consistent by keeping the nucleus. Why have they been able to build or keep a team? Because there's no ****** salary cap.

18 of the 30 teams in baseball last season, were over .500.
15 of the 32 NFL teams are OVER .500 this season.

The teams in the same division play the same schedule except for 1 game. Difference in strength of schedule is a difference of only one game. When a team plays an easy schedule it has nothing to do with the schedule they are given. A schedule that looks easy before the season started could very easily look very difficult by the end of the year.

It makes no difference.

i don't understand what you said. but let me ask you this. Isn't it interesting that the Chiefs have the best record in the league, but also have the easiest schedule.

The way the scheduling works is all the teams in the same division plays the same teams.

For instance all the teams in AFC North play the teams in the AFC west, they will also play all the teams in another division.

After these games are finished there is only one game on the schedule that is a direct result of the teams record from the previous season.

My other point was simple. The schedules are made based on a teams record in the previous seeason. It is very possible that a team that was horrible the year before will be good this season or vice versa. Look at the Bengals and Raiders for instance.

My point is the strength of schedule in the beginning of the season doesnt mean squat, atleast not any more.

FYI the Cheifs do not have the easiest schedule, they are 25th.
