    My thought is it means very little. If anything. It is based on record for this past year. Too much can change. Teams like Washington, Philadelphia, Houston and Atlanta had drastic changes from 2012 to 2013.

    I don't ever put much into it. The AFC South was very down last year so it drives down the strength of schedule for all. I'd be shocked if the Texans are as bad next season.

    The AFC North took a step back as well and should return to form. The same can be said of the NFC East.

    I wish the Titans could swap some of their road games with their home opponents.

    I mainly wish the Titans would be playing in Buffalo so it is easy for me to see them lol

    Every year I am eager to see if they have a game in Buffalo. . . . Or Detroit if it is our year to play the NFC North.

    Yea... Being in the AFC South automatically gets you in the bottom 5 in terms of strength of schedule.

    I'm convinced Houston is back to their 8-8 or worse ways every year for the foreseeable future. Not worried about them, and we better end up 5-1 in this scrub division. Anything worse than 4-2 would be a massive failure.

    There's really no reason we shouldn't compete for this division. We were only 12 points away from winning it last season... yes, we were that close. We lost to the Colts by a combined total of 11 points. Had we won both games like we should have we would've won the division. That's not even to mention the other handful of games we gave away.

    I didn't even look at the link... But yep, I was right.

    Bottom four teams are all in the AFC South. Lol

    And yet the AFC South still has the overall best record since 2002. (as of last year at least)

    Yea. Things change quickly...

    Three years ago the NFC West was the worst division... a complete joke. All four teams lost in one weekend at one point. Now it is by far the best division.

    In 2008 you could've argued the AFC South was the best. Now it is the worst.

    We will not know how strong the schedule is until next year at this time

    This is forever the most meaningless thing to discuss in the NFL.

    Every game is hard, .


    Remember how the Falcons were going to compete for the Superbowl and the Chiefs would be 6-10? Yep.
