Jetlife33 Posted August 6, 2014 Share Posted August 6, 2014 I think a lot of the perception is what happens every year. The assumption is that the tough teams (from last year) will continue to be tough, and that many of the others who weren't have improved to the point where they will now be tough. And then there's the Raiders. So looking at the schedule through that set of eyes will make the schedule look harder than it ultimately will be. Detroit is on there as a tough opponent. Same with Chicago. Meanwhile they sucked last year and are just being viewed (by many) as a good overall team that we'll probably lose to because they have some elite individual fantasy football players. They may be improved enough to be that this year but it's hardly a given. Who's to say that Matt Stafford is even going to be a healthy QB this year? How is it known that Chicago won't be giving up 30 ppg this season? AND that a paper tiger like the Chiefs will still be so hard to beat that a loss is all but assured. We'll see when the time comes for these matchups how hard of an opponent we're facing. There are so many surprises - in both directions - every year. Is it safe to say that when other teams fans see the Jets on their schedule they view that week as a W? I wonder if Oakland's fan base is happy they play us week 1 lol Like you said so many surprises in both directions I just hope it's the Jets surprising teams, in a good way.
