Well, to be "the man", you've got to beat "the man". Besides, this is going to be a new season.Injuries, luck and teams that over and under achieve are going to be different from last year. There is also the draft, free agency (losing and gaining), guys who suddenly tank and those who have career years (I'm looking at you, Case Keenum). So, the hardest schedule is hard to actually predict. But, thanks for the post, Mark. No pun intended.

Preseason strength of schedule doesn't mean that much, as it depends on what the other teams were last year, not what they will be next year. I've seen the Packers SOS move form one of the harder schedules to one of the easier ones pre and post season.

When I saw the Packers sos last offseason, I thought they were a shoe-in for 12-4 or 11-5.

And think, Rodgers injury alone helps every teams sos this year who face the pack, but they now face the pack with AR, so is that preseason sos really relevant?  I'm hoping no! ;)

I doesn't look good right now. But there is a lot of time for it to change.

It is a talking point I guess, but year after year this is brought up and year after year it is proven to have little to no basis. One year ago were people thinking the Rams, Jags and Eagles were going to be difficult games? They certainly didn't weigh heavily on the strength of schedule scale. The NFL is more about when they play another team and not who they are playing.

One reason why it is the hardest is because we play the Vikings twice and they were 13 and 3 last year.

The Patriots have such an easy SOS is because they play in such a crappy division.
