When you look at the list of 2018 opponents there aren't many automatic Ws. This is not going to be last year's schedule.

I thought we heard 9-11 months from the get go, and that was before the other damage was mentioned.

That puts it first week of Sept to first week in November.

Even if you take a month off of that, first week in August to first week in October. Even if he gets on the field first week in August, you won't feel comfortable in what he can do for a few weeks.

Moral of the story: Foles ain't going anywhere, until at least mid August.

We're the champs. We set the standard.

Well, in an unexpected result, we have the easiest strength of schedule among the four NFC East teams next year. That's a good start!

How did they come to that conclusion? All 4 teams play the same schedule with the exception of two games. Those two games for the Eagles are Min and LAR.

Then only good team that they play that the Eagles do not is...the Eagles. That is the only thing I can see.

Math. Every team we play has to play the 16-3 defending champs. We play all those other chumps. So our schedule is "easy" and theirs is "hard." It's a really dumb "stat" to track.

Strength of schedule is okay in broad terms, but who a team beats week-in and week-out almost always ends up being meaningless. Joe had us losing every game last year, because the previous game we didn't beat anybody good. rolleyes.gif

That is exactly right; they have to play us!

However, it sure was fun texting my Cowboy fan acquaintances and let them know they had a more difficult strength of schedule next year. They were all like no way, get a clue.

As Don Henley would say; "Kick them when they're up, kick them when they're down"
