Based on the 2006 opponent winning percentage. They just can't catch a break. They had the worst record and are rewarded with the toughest schedule. And they play in the toughest division in football.

Preseason strength of schedule rankings are pretty meaningless. Mostly due to parity and the rapid rate of power shifts in the NFL. By the time week 10 rolls around, what may have looked like the easiest schedule when it came out, could easily be among the toughest.

The schedules and divisions were set up explicitly to allow for divisional rivalries and to ensure that teams play one another at least once every 4 years. Every team in your division will play 6 divisional games, 4 games against a conference division, and 4 games against a non-conference division. The remaining 2 games are based on divisional standing from the year before.

The Raiders' schedule was set 3-4 years ago without any sort of bias in mind. Stop whining.

I'm not sure the AFC West in the toughest division in football. They might have had the best team perhaps, but that doesn't make them toughest. I'm willing to bet the Chiefs aren't a playoff caliber team next year. And I have a hunch the the Chargers won't be going 14-2 as well.

The Raiders dont play in the toughest division because they bring it down.

The Cowboys probably have the toughest with them, eagles, giants, redskins all being pretty solid at any given time baring injuries.

would have agree with u there. sucks we have the worst offence in history and a top 10 defence right now. all we need is a vet qb,LT and a playmaker on offence then we would be doing way better

Falcons Buce and Panthers?

Free Agency starts on Thursday. The Draft is on 4/28/07. A lot will change between now and then. You can't judge this season's schedule strength now because of all the roster turnover that will take place over the next 6 weeks.

Sure there solid teams, but the span that these teams were in the super bowl is like within the last 7-8 years since you included the Falcons.

And they were good 2 years ago because each team was gauranteed 2 wins against the Saints lol, now thats not the case.

Anybody listing NFC teams as tough is just dumb.

The reason the Raiders opponents had good records is because Oakland lost to them and gave them Ws. They were the worst team in the league by far, please dont make excuses.

The raider's division is not the best but the raiders have the toughest division schedule amongst all teams.
