Saints, Pats, Lions, Packers, Giants... yeah that's a bit tougher bro-ham. That's 5 playoff teams, all top-10 in the league.
Bears & Seahawks at Century Link aren't a walk in the park either.
Compare that to Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Ravens, & Steelers... I'll take last year's schedule in a heartbeat.
you wouldn't have said that at the start of last season. Everyone thought the schedule was too tough and look how the 49ers did. Every year is different and teams change. Everyone was all on the jock of the Eagles and the NFC east and that division bombed.

Yes but like I said, this schedule for the 2012 season has been known for years. What's the surprise? A 1st place schedule?? That's only a difference of 2 games, nothing else has changed. We knew we were going to play 14 of these games a long time ago regardless if if we went 16-0 or 0-16
I really don't see what point you're trying to make here. Why would it matter if we knew most of our schedule before hand? The only thing that matters is whether or not the 2012 schedule looks tougher than the 2011 schedule (and it does).
It IS a tough schedule. Patriots, Saints, Packers, Bears, Giants, Lions.
Saints we beat once we can again plus they will be without SP and without Vilma, Lions we beat, Giants we went 1-1 and really should have been 2-0, NE is beatable remember how easy their schedule was how many "winning" teams did they beat last year? Bears aren't any tougher then any other team on the schedule.
