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).
8th. I think THIS year is the one projected
to be 2nd toughest.
But your point stands.
2011's schedule at the end of season turned out to be the 8th most difficult. 2012's projects to be the 2nd most, but more than likely will turn out to be middle of the pack (floundering Saints, Steelers, etc)
