The way they are playing, I agree. They are peaking at the right time. They way I see it, after next Sunday, Packers then the Saints, then and date in Indy on the 5th.

On average, only about half the teams in one year's playoffs make the playoffs the following year....

I watch the Steelers/Ravens on a consistent basis (live in MD), they're nowhere near as good as it seems. The AFC is weak, and they feast on a really weak offensive division.

Yeah, it's not always who you play but when you play them. Some of these playoff team may stink next year. OTOH, some of the punching bags might be much improved.

Saints - Tough team. Will they still be next year? Could be sans Colston and they could move down from a great team to a good one.
Steelers - Getting older. Much Older. Wont be terribly tough.
Packers - Will still be a tough game but we can do it.
Falcons - Up and down team. Who knows what we get next year.
Ravens - Getting older as well. We can beat them.
Bengals - Young team. Might be a bit tough.
Niners - I wonder if they were a one year wonder. We will soon find out next year.

Well, with hopefully a healthy team finally, some added pieces and some young guns with some real game time experience.

I say bring them on...

As it was said before. They should fear us!

We played the Saints and Packers this season (again next season) compared to the Bears and Falcons or Vikings and Bucs or Lions and Panthers. It is a huge difference. </P>

The Bears/Falcons and Lions/Panthers seem almost as difficult as Packers/49ers do. You have to expect Bears/Lions/Panthers are all poised to IMPROVE no less after this year while the Packers/49ers probably won't be better than they are now. It all evens out in the end. Only the Redskins have a big advantage getting two futile teams - but then again they had that this year too and didn't do anything with it.

</P>


The Eagles will play Saints, Falcons, Ravens, Bengals, Steelers, Giants, and Lions so they will tie us with 7 play off opponents, but since they face us twice, that's 8 games.</P>


Dallas and Washington will play Saints, Falcons, Ravens, Bengals, Steelers, Giants (2x) so 7 games against playoff teams</P>


So, at least it's going to be quite even. </P>

Waaaaaaay too early to predict...

Who expected the 49ers to be the No.2 seed in the NFC this season??? Enough said...

I agree, that schedule would be just terrible! Is that what a 9-7 team can expect? I suppose they will screw us with an early bye too! That schedule is a bad joke. Dont forget Dallas, Philly and Wash twice on top of it!

Those 7 plus the 6 division games leave 3.
They had better be against TB, Stl and Minny!

the Bengals will proabley fall off and the NFC South is a tough division to figure out

be much obliged if someone would dial up the full listing of home/away non-div opponents for 2012....

found this on website, answered my own question--

The Giantts’ first-place finish determined their final two opponents for the 2012 season: They will host the Green Bay Packers and visit the 49ers in San Francisco – as they did this season. The Packers and 49ers each won their division titles.


The remainder of the Giants’ opponents is determined by the NFL’s scheduling rotation. They will, of course, play home-and-home series with NFC East foes Dallas, Philadelphia and Washington. In 2012, the NFC East will play the NFC South and the AFC North. The Giants will host New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Cleveland and Pittsburgh and travel to Atlanta, Carolina, Baltimore and Cincinnati.

Well, it's not that surprising... 4 of those playoff teams we face just because of the schedule... The 2 Division winners of the entire divisions we face and then the two 1st place teams of the NFC divisions we don't face.</P>


Not much different than this year's schedule, really. We faced Philly twice, NO, GB, Seattle*, NE, Jets...</P>

Can't tell how hard a schedule is until it plays out. We supposedly had a brutal schedule this year and played a grand total of 4 games agianst teams with winning records. And went 1-3.</P>

No, it's not close to "quite even". Dallas and Washington DON'T play the Packers and the 49er's, instead they play US twice. No one would say that's even - just look at our record compared to those 2. The league automatically matching up division winners the following season helps assure that the non division winners have an automatic advantage the next year in their schedule.

Every team in the NFC east played the entire NFC west, including the 49rs. We got the Packers and the Saints because they both finished second in their divisions last year. Each team in a division plays the exact same schedule with the exception of two games.</P>

Meh, I really don't take any of this future schedule schedule stuff into consideration until the season is actually in full swing. Today's playoff team can easily be tomorrow's whipping boy, and vica versa.

Its a HUGE advantage for Dallas and Philly next year! They dont play GB or SF?!?!
And we only won 1 more game than them this year!! 9-7 to 8-8!! Thats total BS!!

It's a brutal schedule now, but as the next season goes on we will find out who are the true playoff teams are.

How much of a dropoff can GB and SF possibly have? They may even improve! And we face Cam Newton! Thats not gonna be easy. And Pitt too.
