    The Texans at #1

    Not sure I agree as the NFC North in my opinion has so far picked up a lot since last year. What do you think?

    It is always hard to say... Basing strentgh of schedule on the previous year's record is very hit or miss. Teams get better, teams get worse...

    exactly, you can only win against what is put in front of you each week. Basing a season on last year is always a gamble.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Strength of schedule based on last years records is no way to determine how good you will be. Every team plays a minimum of 4 games against playoff teams from the year before, and it can be as high as 10 games against playoff teams from the year before. Yet, the number teams that return to the playoffs is usually around 50%. To many changes occur each year to use it as a good barometer.
