    As it stands today (and naturally things can change in a hurry with the draft and free agency) that schedule doesn't look too scary at all.

    Nice...

    Both the left coast games are HOME!!!

    Of course the Jacksonville game is now reportedly going to be in London; so that will be a time zone switch. (But I am secretly hoping for this so I can go to a game for once. :rocker: - I missed the last one in London vs TB :( )

    BB will have to get them "pumped and jacked" when he faces Pete Carroll.

    Next step is not too many night games, they do a number on sleep patterns..

    It will probably be B'More anywway and I'm not as concerned with the game being @ Pitt as I am with what date it is. As long as it is not around Halloween the Pats will be fine. The only 2 times they have lost @ Pitt in the Brady era have been on October 31st and 30th respectively.

    The NFCW probably won't be as sad next year if Seattle gets a legit QB. SF is now a tough game and probably will stay that way if the other Harbaugh's continued success in Baltimore is any indication.

    Of course alot can change to next season but as it stands now it looks like a slightly tougher schedule, nothing brutal though.

    I think the NFL changed the rules to prevent a team from having to go to the west coast twice in one season.

    if Bmore loses this weekend, the Pats go to Pitt, if the ratbirds win this weekend, the Pats go to Bmore.

    Just as long as the Seattle trip doesn't mate up to this trip; and even worse on a short week, like Monday night @ Seattle, then Sunday @ Bmore.

    Agreed, swith Arizona to an away game and switch Seattle to a home game.


    Of course, we can't go to Arizona without someone brining up SB42.

    All things considered though, that schedule looks as easy as it is ever going to get.

    If the Colts do get Andrew Luck it will even be that much easier.

    Holy crap. Serious Question.

    When you guys see that schedule, does 16-0 come to your head?

    Home looks easy, and away looks very easy besides the AFC North game.

    Disable Jersey

    No, not at all

    Just how often is it that a team does that? The last team to do that had an above average defense capable of holding the fort on those 2-3 games a year that the offense was OTL. Just couldn't do it one last time.

    Peyton will be back next year so the Indy home game will be tough. Jets won't be a cake walk either.

    Well, we were a dumb Mccourty tackle, a ref screwing up a Gronk TD call, and a defensive choke from being 16-0 this season with the worst defense of the BB era. :D

    The offense will be intact next year with Brady/Gronk/Ahern/Welker. If BB can make this defense average in the off season, who knows.
