    Nice. We get to murder the Chiefs on week 1 in front of a national television audience. No better way to vent, IMO.

    I like it!! While the bye comes early they go to the West Coast right after it (a good travel break) and play the weaker opponent 1st to shake off the rust then they play in SD on a Sunday night and followed by a Monday night at home (nice break) against the Broncos f/b the Rams at home. They get a mini-bye in November when they play the Bills at home on a Sunday f/b the Jets on Thurdsay then they don't play again for 10 days and at Miami in November. That's a nice little break for the team. Also get the Cardinals at home after coming off the 2nd trip out west.
    Love having the 4 West Coast games back to back x2. The team should stay out West and utilize that time to bring the team together. The other team sports always talk about how long trips enhance the closeness of the team.
    Wish the bye were later but all in all the schedule lays out nice.

    I wanted to apologize to the Mods for starting a scheduling rant thread that should probably have been vented out in one of the other threads.

    And thanks for the info on why we got stuck with all of those road games out west.

    Wow. Two back-to-back games on the west coast, that will be tough.

    The one thing I thought was a little off about the schedule is that they have back to back west coast games two different times, that is a lot of traveling. Fly out, play, fly back, then fly back out again a couple day's later
    other than that, it is what it is, you still have to play and win

    A wonderful schedule for our guys, assuming things are at all like last year. WE discussed their schedule already when the teams and home/away came out a few months ago:
    http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/showthread.php?t=77418

    Also, if one more person uses the stupid tautology "It is what it is" to describe their schedule, I am going to kick you in the nuts. Through the internet, using the new pedia-kick system. THat is not saying anything. My dog is just as informative.

    X is X. Substitute random crap in for X, and it will be true, and act all insightful and cool when you say it. A good pizza is a good pizza.
