    The Giants have struggled against the Eagles, that's just a stone cold fact. Eli is 6-13 against them.

    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.
