    Yes, which makes this years loss all the more painful. It's going to be VERY tough the next couple seasons to even make the playoffs never mind win it all.

    Get 'em out of the way in the regular season. Besides, two of those games should be fairly easy.

    As long as none are back to back and they are spread out, I don't see this as a problem.

    Only good thing is that I will have 4-options for a road trip to see the Pats play in one of those cities.

    Seriously? This year's loss hurt for sure- any chance you have to get to the SB that's blown is tough- but struggling to make the playoffs? I think this team will be contending for several years now. I definitely wouldn't go that far.

    Bad for the Pats, but good for me! I've already prepped my wife for the two road trips to Seattle and San Diego in 2008. The other two games are local :rocker:

    All they have to do to make the playoffs is win the AFC East. Have you looked at their schedules? Playoffs, yes. 1st rd. bye, problem.

    Unfortunately y'all have benefitted from some of the softest schedules in the league (thru your SB runs), & next yr. probably won't be any different.:mad: Miami & Buffalo give you a combined 4 wins a yr. virtually guaranteed. And no I realize you blew it in Miami this yr. But Saban won't be around next yr. to record your game from the previous week, & play back the signals for his defense.:p Cleveland also is a guaranteed win, & you shouldn't even be allowed to play them after being in the AFC Championship. While on paper next yrs. schedule might look tough? Pittsburg has a new coach, so there's no telling what Steeler team will show up. Same goes for the Cowgirls, who just might implode w/out Parcells. The DEADskins are done, & your pattys should roll over their corpse. Depending upon what time of the yr. you play the Giants? They might have already revolted on Coughlin, so that should also be an easy win. The Bungles, Dolts, Bolts, Ravens, & maybe the Beagles will be some tough games. And Mangenius w/ the Jets will hopefully give y'all fits.:D So even though I'd love to say otherwise, I'm thinking you'll finish 10-6 next yr. or maybe 11-5. Unfortunately primed, & in perfect position to win your 4th SB.

    You sir are insane! They actually have computers at the "home"?

    Do you have internet access underneath the bridge you live under?

    This just in... They are not the LA Rams anymore.

    I guess the '08 schedule will be the price paid for years like this one, where the farthest west they went was to where, minnesota? it's just crappy that they have to play the afc and nfc west the same year, but then again the whole division does.

    Yeah, that's all that the Pats have been doing the last 2 years. No HFA, no bye, just expecting to win it all out of the #4 spot. This needs to improve in 2007 or the Pats will be due for another playoff meltdown, which if anybody has noticed is becoming the trend.

    Sorry, that post reeks of "troll" but that's my unbiased opinion.

    Thank you thank you, but flattery will get you nowhere I assure you. No matter how nicely you might speak of me, I'll never like your pats & that's final. As to your last statement? If you clicked on the link in my signature for The original Guarantee? You'd see where I was introduced as LA(Louisiana)Rams fan. So it's a play on words there Ace, & I am in fact a "LA" Rams fan.:cool: Where instead of referring to Los Angeles I'm referring to the abbreviation of my state. Clever huh?;) Ya well I didn't expect you to agree. But honestly there's always a few nimrods every few months, who mention it or try to make fun of me about my name.:p At which time I politely explain it, & get to enjoy the egg slowly rolling down their face.:D

    Look at the Jets and Bils records, and then tell me we're in a weak division.

    And realize that when we were going 14-2 and winning 21 games in a row, we lost to the Bills that season. And we lost to the Dolphins the prior season.

    And our record against the Jets isn't pristine either.

    You're in a sorry division. I wouldn't talk about ours.

    Oakland and Seattle? Remember that SF is the one that bounced Denver out of the playoffs, in Denver. They also beat Seattle, in Seattle. SF might be on the way back. Besides, it's '08, and a lot can happen betrween now and then. First time ever four trips out here in one season for the Pats?

    Oh I'll avoid ripping on that "streak" of yours, since I'm in enemy territory here. But IMHO it was directly due to that soft division, & those easy schedules. And I'll also forego my reasoning as to why you lost the Bills that yr. & the fins this yr. Suffice it to say if y'all had been battling the Dolphins & Bills of the 90s the last few yrs.? You wouldn't have won 3 out of 4 SBs, as the competition would've been much more fierce IMHO. J.P. Losman is no Jim Kelly by any stretch of the imagination, & McGahee is no Thurman Thomas of course.

    And please don't get me started on my own division, it just hurts too much. Thanks to YOUR #%@##$@%%#$ Patriots of course, our dynasty was over b4 it ever got off the ground. Then I got to watch Martz implode the GSOT, instead of keep the nucleus together like your #@#$@@#$ Bellichick has managed to do. The ONLY reason why the Seabrats even MADE the SB last yr., & have won the division for the last 3 yrs straight is bc it's the worst in the league. They won it in 04, but yet we managed to beat them THREE straight times that yr. So were the Seabrats the REAL 04 Division Champions? I think not!!! So the West is the WORST by far, & that's really saying something when you consider the NFC North. But it doesn't change the fact that your division is a close cousin of my own, & it has had it's share of dreadful teams over the last 6 yrs. Which coincides ironically w/ your SB runs.:mad: Coincidence? I think not!!!

    Good Lord. Please give my eyes a rest and leave out all the color-coding.

    And next time, I suggest you do you research first.

    Here are the Sagarin strength of schedule ratings for the Pats in the past 6 seasons:

    2006 - 4th toughest
    2005 - 8th toughest
    2004 - 7th toughest
    2003 - 8th toughest
    2002 - 4th toughest
    2001 - 20th toughest

    And before you continue with your "AFC East is easy" drivel, Sagarin's computerized division-by-division rankings:

    AFC EAST:

    2006 - 1st (of 8)
    2005 - 7th
    2004 - 1st
    2003 - 2nd

    2002 - 3rd
    2001 - 2nd (of 6)

    I blinded you w/ crayons, so you return the favor & blind me w/ STATS? OH WOW I think I'm going to FAINT I'm so impressed. SERIOUSLY!!! Look can we get some cold water in here please? I didn't know that I was going to have to go back to school just to state an opinion. And I can see by your thorough quoting of one singular source, that I can't hope to stand up to such daunting statistical reinforcement. Yes sireeee you have severely beaten down my inner child, & I'm in desperate need of a hug now let me assure you. I now crown you KING of all message boards, & hail you as a Living God on the internet.

    The AFC East is EASY.:yeahthat: :bricks:

    TTTHHPPPPPPPTTTTTT!!! NAAHHH NAAHH NAA NAAAHH NAAHHHH!!!:p

    So what do you think about that one Ace? You gonna tell the principal on me now? Ya so I think your division is EASY, & has been for yrs. I've actually gone so far as to connect the Bill's 4 straight SB runs, & the Dolphins undefeated season to a historically weak division. What do you think about those correlations there champ?:D Ohhhhh right where are the statistics you so desperately crave? Well I'll leave that to you since you've got a PHD in Bookworm, & that way you'll get all excited looking up more fun stuff OK? There ya happy now? As for me I'm going to go right ahead, & think of your AFC East the same way I think of my NFC West. I think they're WEAK divisions, and I'm going to right on ahead & say so. So what do you think of that Mr. Poopy pants? (And if you haven't seen the Naked Gun 2 you won't get the "Poopy pants" reference, so don't sweat it).

    If the AFC East is easy, then all the other divisions are progressively easier, culminating in a pedestrian NFC West.

    All you had to do was tell me to leave your psychedelic, eccentric self alone.

    Fair enough. But it wouldn't have been as fun now would it?:D Don't say you didn't enjoy this, I know you were just itching to look up some yummy stats.:p But in retrospect all you had to tell me was that you'd like to see some statistics validating my opinions don't ya think? So I was simply following your lead cocheese.;) Oh & I do like the multisyllabic reverse psychology which makes your point in a all encompassing kinda way. Culminating by insulting my putrid division. You're not telling me anything I don't know, our division winner backed into the playoffs by losing the last 3 out of 4 games.:eek: So you're preaching to the choir here my good man.

    There doesn't yet seem to be an understanding that the original schedule posted is for the year after next. This is a funny thread.

    (had to respond to myself since I can't edit original post)

    And to add: The next time this happens? 2032, unless the NFL changes its scheduling.
