We played the 2nd toughest schedule in the NFL last year. Second only to the Giants. The people using that excuse for our success last year have no credibility to begin with.
The fact is, we've got to improve considerably as the season progresses if we're going to have a better year than 2011. We've already shown that we can't beat the top tier teams in the league. If we don't get better by a significant margin that's not going to change when the playoffs roll around (if we get there).
