For those of you that get SI mag there is a lengthy/swanky scouting report on each team in it. One of the things I was eyeing today was the schedule strength of each team, according to win percentage of opponents. Seahawks check in at 19, close to middle of the road, percentage being .477. Also unit grades are given out. QB=A, RB=C+, WR=B-, TE=C, OL=B-, DL=B-, LB=B (WTF, B?!), DB=B, and ST=B.
Some other metionables are New England with THE easiest schedule at .387, plaing only 4 games against last seasons' playoff teams. Pittsburg checks in at the toughest with .598 and 8 playoff team games. Good, fuck 'em up please NFL. But what I found most pertinant to the P.Manning/Brady debate over best QB is that the Colts have the second toughest scedule at .594 with 8 playoff team games. I've always said that Peyton was the best QB in the league, how bout yall? Also the Chargers check in at the second easiest scedule at .422 and 4 playoff opponents.
