    It should be a help to us, but we cannot play down to the level of our competition like we have in the past.

    Re: Vikings have fourth easiest 2006 schedule

    It isn't too hard to fathom that we have a so called easy schedule. We play everyone in our division twice. We play other NFC teams that all had excessive losses in head to heads with the AFC.

    What did we get lucky enough to also draw the Cards and the Niners? Wouldn't that be awesome.

    I haven't even looked at next years schedule, but they based this ranking on the winning percentages from this season of the teams we play next season. It just doesn't surprise me. If you looked at the whole list, you will probably see tons of NFC teams towards the bottom and a ton of AFC towards the top with the hardest schedules.

    Basically the NFC is going to be a pretty level playing field and I wouldn't be giving too much advantage to the strength of schedule.

    Exactly.

    I doesn't matter who you play, it matter when you play them.

    That's my whole take on it as well.

    Also as SIA stated we play everyone in our division, twice which based on GB & Detroits record last year makes it appear we have a soft schedule.

    Our 2005 record vs. the Bears 2005 record is also the reason the Bears appear to have an easier schedule than us.

    But let's not sell ourselves short on a 10-6 record. :wink:

    Did you mean "how," I can agree with that.

    On a side note, people wonder why the Hawks aren't getting respect. It is because of the week NFC, the analysts are looking at the strength of their schedule to judge how they will play. But like stated, it is how you play the Steelers that will count. Do all the predicting you want.

    They had 6 games against the Rams, Niners, and the Cards.

    Sep 11 @Jacksonville Lost 14-26
    Sep 18 Atlanta Won 21-18
    Sep 25 Arizona Won 37-12
    Oct 2 @Washington Lost 17-20
    Oct 9 @St. Louis Won 37-31
    Oct 16 Houston Won 42-10
    Oct 23 Dallas Won 13-10
    Week 8 BYE
    Nov 6 @Arizona Won 33-19
    Nov 13 St. Louis Won 31-16
    Nov 20 @San Francisco Won 27-25
    Nov 27 N.Y. Giants Won 24-21
    Dec 5 @Philadelphia Won 42-0
    Dec 11 San Francisco Won 41-3
    Dec 18 @Tennessee Won 28-24
    Dec 24 Indianapolis Won 28-13
    Jan 1 @Green Bay Lost 17-23

    Except for the Indy game which that was a rest game for the Indy starters for the most part. That schedule looks soft. I know it was a meaningless game, but they lost to GB. Atleast they ROLLED San Fran and Philly.

    Steelers schedule:

    Sep 11 Tennessee Won 34-7
    Sep 18 @Houston Won 27-7
    Sep 25 New England Lost 20-23
    Week 4 BYE
    Oct 10 @San Diego Won 24-22
    Oct 16 Jacksonville Lost 17-23
    Oct 23 @Cincinnati Won 27-13
    Oct 31 Baltimore Won 20-19
    Nov 6 @Green Bay Won 20-10
    Nov 13 Cleveland Won 34-21
    Nov 20 @Baltimore Lost 13-16
    Nov 28 @Indianapolis Lost 7-26
    Dec 4 Cincinnati Lost 31-38
    Dec 11 Chicago Won 21-9
    Dec 18 @Minnesota Won 18-3
    Dec 24 @Cleveland Won 41-0
    Jan 1 Detroit Won 35-21

    Since Dec 11th, the Steelers have looked very impressive.

    Jacksonville will be able to say we beat the SB champs this year.

    That's because our winning pecentage figures into the Bears strength of schedule & their winning pecentage figures into ours.

    Thus, because our winning percentage was lower than the Bears, it gives them the easier schedule because they play us twice. :wink:
