both have a higher SoS since they finished higher in the division? The Giants being bad lowers the SoS of division teams

Not necessarily because the Eagles and Cowboys schedule includes the Giants twice each. The Giants schedule includes the Eagles and Cowboys twice each. So that's a big swing in SOS there alone.
4 games

vs. Dallas and Philly plus the AFC North will do that to you.

Ah, makes sense. I would be interested in the SOS outside the division for the NFCE teams.

Their SOS is softer because they play the Giants twice each.

and Wash, who had a worse record than we did.
Looks like 6-8 wins

"In the hunt" for the wild card into December (because almost everyone in the league is). Bad, boring offense. Ok defense. Win some games against mediocre teams based on turnovers.

Win a game or 2 at the end of the year where Daniel plays decent. Arrow is pointing up. Developing a rapport with the WRs. Can't mortgage the future in the draft. No sure fire franchise guys anyway.

Do it all again in 2025.

Their SoS is lower because they have two games against the Giants which NY has 4 games against them. If you take out the common foes, the Cowboys three teams (Texans, Lions, & 49ers) with a 0.667 winning percentage, the Eagles play three teams (Packers, Jaguars, & Rams) with a 0.55 winning percentage while the Giants play three teams (Vikings, Colts, Seahawks) with a 0.49% winning percentage.
Giants and Packers only two NFC teams in top ten...

...with the NFC South bringing up the rear.

Thank you ! I was too lazy to look that up.
This is odd, to say the least:

I think our offense will be a little more exciting this year with a better WR core, better OL, and the RB by committee approach - or at least I have some optimism in that regard. However, I can't see DJ all of a sudden becoming a big-time passer or even top 50% in the NFL but offense should be better.

Not fair for Daboll

Guys.....the Giants T-6th vs the 21st....is a quarter of a game  
George from PA : 5/15/2024 3:48 am : link
Which is nominal.....by 5th game....you will throw out the SOS

Talk about a bell curve.....sure the difference between the Browns and Saints matter....,almost a full game delta.

But Most teams are about the same SOS....not much a difference.


Much to do about nothing
The true strength of schedule  
gridirony : 5/15/2024 7:54 am : link
has absolutely nothing to do with last season.

It has to do with what strength each team is for each current game it plays. That strength of schedule can even change in-game, with injuries.

A good example would be Philly last year. Was Philly the same strength as a team late in the season, as they were early in the season?

Or, how about the Jets prior to, and after, their QB getting lost for the season?
