OK, so you’ve had a night to sleep on your favorite team’s NFL schedule.
And no matter how you feel about it, you probably don’t feel as good as the fine folks who cover your team for ESPN.
The worldwide leader asked its fleet of beat writers to count up wins and losses for each team after last night’s schedule release.
And they came up with a record of 290-222. Which is neat, except mathematically impossible by 34 games, unless they’ve figured out how to let both teams win on Monday Night Football.
No division was more optimistic than the NFC West, which will apparently feature three 12-4 teams (the Seahawks, 49ers and Cardinals).
Granted, the writers operated independently of one another, and it’s an assignment which was given to them by someone else.
But it just goes to show how pointless it is to try to predict wins and losses in April, before the NFL Draft, before injuries hit, before rosters are picked.
Besides, when I picked them, the league went 222-290.
