NFL scheduling is completely unfair, teams that have the highest records in the NFL have the weakest schedules, The New York Giants came into this NFL season with the highest strength of schedule, which is fair considering they just won the super bowl. But when you look at the teams that finished around them such as the 49ers, Patriots, Texans, Falcons etc....they have the weakest schedules this year...is this fair by any means?

I'll be argueing that NFL scheduling is fair, for now lets look at the 2012 NFL strength of schedule chart on ESPN.go.com (http://espn.go.com...)

Contention 1 History

Arcording to the way that the schedule is set up it is based on how well the team has done in history, so you have the terrible teams getting the easy schedule while the good teams get the harder schedule. Not only that but you'll see that the playoff teams inballanced from top 16 and bottom 16 in the NFL, but the imballance goes to the upper half, (http://espn.go.com...) so therefore half the teams in the NFL have to go through Hell just to get to where they are today.

Make the voting period longer. Three days is too short, especially over the Holiday period. If that's sorted, I would love to take this one.
