Patriots: Tough road back to playoffs in '09
There she is.
Re: Official: 2009 Patriots Complete Schedule
Well that really sucks.. Back to back at indy, NYJ at Miami at No...that sucks..
On the flip side, at least the Dolts don't have a bye in Week 9 (theirs is in Week 6).
This is seems like a tough road. We'll see how it goes.
Thw two games on the road with the first Monday Night and the second at Miami is the only tough piece that I see, given that we already knew the opponents.
i dont think its that bad actually, can someone explain. not that many high caliber teams, though a lot of bad road games after each other
3 primetime away games, in 4 weeks = :banned:
Other then the primetime road games this is easily a 13-3 14-2 schedule.
And I like our bye at week 8! It's not the easiest one but we've had tough schedules before,maybe even tougher.
Because, as we all know, THIS was such an easy schedule.
I really don't think this is bad at all, for a number of reasons:
-@ Miami isn't until December at night, so no heat factor there.
-If you look at last year's playoffs teams we get Miami, Atlanta, Baltimore, Tennessee, and Carolina at home while only Miami and Indy on the road.
-No San Diego, Pitt, or NFC East this year.
-Jacksonville at home in December (warm weather team in foxboro=easy win)
-Bye week right in the middle of the year.
-The only bad part is that @Indy-Jets-@New Orleans-@Miami stretch and getting the physical Titans a week before the London game.
The most important point here is that the Pats look loaded and the schedule shouldn't matter. We should expect to win all these games (not 16-0, just confident going into every game) and we will need to beat these teams at some point anyway to win #4. Depending on the draft, I say 13-3, 14-2, or 15-1 as long as Tom is healthy
Yeah, the one thing I'm not crazy about is back-to-back night games, both on the road, and three night games in four weeks. Also only two of the last six games, from November 30th on are in Foxboro - takes away the home field advantage a little bit.
Funny how there's no Week 17 game listed. Of course, we all know IND has a history of not showing up that week. . . .
Wow, five night games!
Funny I didn't catch that. Everything Colts related, or Manning brothers in general related, sends me into an uncontrollable rampage. So I avoided looking at it, but now my house is destroyed thanks.
Wait, I am missing a game aren't I?
This is a tough schedule, but its doable!! Imagine having one of the toughest schedules in the NFL and we win the Superbowl and ohh not only that last season steelers had the 4th hardest schedule and won the superbowl so if they can do it we can do it
