Tomorrow is the release of the NFL schedule. The league turns it into a big event. You get a television special to announce the games.
The whole thing seems a bit silly to me. We already know the sixteen opponents each team will face. All we are learning is the order of the games. I am fighting a losing battle, though. A lot of people love the schedule release. You might be among them. There is a reason the NFL does it this way.
I do have one request. Can we at least make the analysis of the schedule better? Every year we hear about which teams will have easy or tough schedule based on shaky methodology. It is always about how good their opponents were the year before, not how good their opponents will be this year.
That is the topic of today’s podcast. I will take you through what you should and shouldn’t look for.
