Sometimes I do agree that Giants fans are spoiled.
    The Giants have struggled against the Eagles, that's just a stone cold fact. Eli is 6-13 against them.

      These analyses never work looking forward. At best you get a few clues but at the pace that things change in the NFL, you won't know who had the toughest schedule until the season is over. Even then there is always an asterik because the weak divisions play a bunch of weak teams so a team with 10 wins in one division might actually be worse than a team with 8 wins in a stronger division.

      Don't get me wrong, I like to look at these articles as much as anyone. In the end they are only fodder for boards like this.
      No one remembers who came in second.

        Exactly this. It is a huge myth around here that we "play down" to crappy teams and lose all the time to them. Maybe we are getting their best effort because we are a good team. Who cares if the game was tight, you can't blow out every team because "they suck" or whatever. So what the score is closer than our fans want it or something. This is still the NFL. A win is a win.

          Does anyone know where I can find the Giants 2012 strength of schedule based on actual win-loss record? Typically SOS based on previous season record is terribly inaccurate.

            Another 9-7 season is a horrible thought. But yes, it would show a system problem. Changes would have to be made.

              Not quite what you're after, but there is a slightly different take on it here. They've taken into account how the team in question affected their opponent's win/loss record.

              Hardest to easiest:
              1. Lions
              2. Cardinals
              3. Rams
              4. Vikings
              5. Giants
              6. Cowboys
              7. Packers
              8. Bears
              9. Saints
              10. 49ers
              11. Jaguars
              12. Seahawks
              13. Panthers
              14. Texans
              15. Patriots
              16. Titans
              17. Ravens
              18. Jets
              19. Redskins
              20. Buccaneers
              21. Browns
              22. Dolphins
              23. Chiefs
              24. Eagles
              25. Broncos
              26. Bills
              27. Steelers
              28. Raiders
              29. Chargers
              30. Colts
              31. Bengals
              32. Falcons

                  I swear if the Giants don't make the playoffs with this schedule in 2013, they don't deserve to be in the playoffs.

                    They rarely deserve to be in the playoffs.
