Will Hill is the J.R. Smith of the NFL.
Well, it's a lot better than this year where we were near or at the top of tough schedules. I wrote a message about this a month or so ago. I compared 2012 to 2013 based on opponents performance in 2012.
Based on 2012 performance we have the easiest schedule in our division but not by much. Actually all four teams are around the middle of the pack.
Of course, this is just one aspect of what goes into a successful season but it sure is important for getting into the playoffs and one should never underestimate the importance of that.
I have dug into the details, but I don't (mathematically) understand how the Eagles who will play a 4th place schedule could have a more difficult schedule the Cowboys or us.
Teams can change so much over the course of an off-season, you don't truly know the strength of your schedule until you've finished playing it.
We face a tough division in the NFC north next year and we have Seattle and New Orleans and of course we can't seem to beat our division rivals either.
No schedule is easy in the NFL.
