    Compiled from http://www.playoffstatus.com/ (an amazing site I just saw a link to today!):

    2006 STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE
    1. Titans
    2. Bills
    3. Bengals
    4. Giants
    5. Donkeys
    6. Dolts
    7. Doofins
    8. Jaguars
    9. PATRIOTS
    10. Buccaneers

    Not really surprised that 8 of the top 10 scheds are AFC teams. I don't expect that to change much next season, either. . . .

    Turns out that the AFC East is the best if not one of the best divisions in football...nothing easy about the 2006 Pats schedule except for the NFC North!

    Check out those JETS, easiest schedule in the AFC, 25th in the NFL!!! And you wonder why they made the playoffs...

    Ravens and Chargers had the next two easiest schedules in the AFC, maybe we shouldn't be so afraid...

    2006 STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE
    1. Titans
    2. Bills

    Why did these guys get such a tough draw? Their previous year records were only middle of the pack.

    3. Bengals
    4. Giants
    5. Donkeys
    6. Dolts

    These teams were all pretty good the year before...


    7. Doofins

    That vaunted "winning streak" didn't help them any did it?

    8. Jaguars

    again 12-4 the previous year...

    9. PATRIOTS

    could have been worse...I expected it to be easier when I first looked at the schedule.

    10. Buccaneers

    How did these guys get so screwed?

    AWESOME site, CT - thanks for posting.

    Take a look at projected draft positions and they have us at 89% of picking at 28 and the Seahawks all spread from 15-21, with highest probability at 17. I think they are very wrong though, Pats Will be picking 32 this year;)

    I figured I wouldn't be the only one interested. [Of course, they don't refer to Denver as the Donkeys. :D ]

    Those are the draft picks before the SB is taken into account. :)

    [And, BTW, the NE via SEA pick, before taking the SB into account, could be anywhere from 11 to 26(!), although the highest probability is actually for #20 (35%), followed by #19, #16, and #17. Similarly, the NE pick is probably #28 (89%), with a possibility of #29, #30, or #27.]

    Previous year's record only decides two of your 16 opponents. Outside of your six division games and the two aforementioned games, the other 8 games are predetermined regardless of previous season's record.
