Fanball Strength of Schedule Analysis

Postby The Lung » Wed Apr 16, 2008 3:33 pm

Best Matchup in Week 15 - New England @ Oakland
Randy Moss returns to the scene of the crime where he "stole" money from the Raiders with a series of less than spectacular efforts. The game should be a total blowout, but the hype and the build up should be substantial.

Best Matchup in Week 16 - Indianapolis @ Jacksonville
The Colts defeated the Jags both times they met in 2007 and it was the reason that the Jags finished second in the division.

I think the NE vs Oakland is deceiving. The Raiders will have either Nnamdi Asomugha or Deangelo Hall shadowing Moss all game long. I'm not saying you should bench Brady/Moss that week, just to temper your expectations.

I guess I am missing the point of his analysis. Does it have to do with what games are going to be the best to watch or which will be easiest to pre-write a sappy story line? If these are the best match-ups football is in big trouble.
Week 1 Bears/Colts
Uh, that is so 5 minutes ago. DeBears are DaShadow of DaTeam dat went to DaSuperbowl. Blowout forthcoming.
Week 4 Browns/Bengals
Really? That is the best in week 4? A Browns team that has to prove last year wasn’t a fluke and a Bengals team in self-distruct mode.
Week 7 Vikes/Bears
Any NFC North match-up cannot be considered the best for that week.
Week 8 Saints/Bolts march into London. And that is the basis for why this is the best match-up. Great logic.
Week 10 Saints/Falcons
No, really. That is what they feel is the most compelling match-up this week? What, they couldn’t schedule another epic Lions/Cards game?
Week 11 Pack/Bears-see week 7.
Week 15 Pats/Raiders
Are we talking football or soap operas? Moss returns to Oakland! Oh my!! Lets ignore the probability of this game being as competitive as the Lions.
I guess it's bettert than Madden's best weekly match-ups list: What ever team GB is playing that week and we can discuss all the great games Brett Favre has had there and whether he will un-retire this week. :-L

Speak for yourself, Lions fan. :-D I'll be watching this game, enjoying every bash, sack and tackle. These two teams traditionally get together for some tough, hard-hitting games, and this should be no different.

Fair enough. Just thinking that watching two teams with no QB and one team clearly on a steep decline isn't riviting to me. I sincerely hope to be proven very wrong. Week 7 looks like a stinker.

Even as a Saints fan I have to agree with you here. Unless they are going to completely change the surface at Wembley stadium, I'm not looking forward to that game against the Bolts. I am actually a little pissed off about it because playing in a mud bog is going to be a bigger disadvantage to the Saints than the Chargers, and it's a Saints home game. The Saints team is built around playing most of their games on the fake stuff, so not only do you take a home game away (add that to the one that was lost when they moved a Saints home game vs. the Giants to Giants Stadium after the hurricane), but you put the home team at a disadvantage based on playing conditions.

No idea why the Saints Falcons game is a compelling matchup either. I haven't looked the other games in week 10, but there has to be something more interesting than a game between two perennial underachievers.
