Says who? I'm not a Dallas hater, as I really don't care either way, but I didn't vote.

No idea what Chip Kelly will put out there on the field during Pre-season, but my interest is in what he'll actually do, and what will be there on that first game at Atlanta Falcons (Monday Night Football, September 14, 2015)! Should be very interesting.

Now the TV time, prime games another story altogether, I'm not complaining, Packers always get at least 5 prime time, I think.
People try and find whatever they can to knock the Patriots. They don't make their schedule, the NFL does. Not to mention the AFC East has not been the easiest division in the NFL over the last 5 or 6 seasons.

I just hope it's interesting "good" and not an interesting "disaster"!

The Packers (or Broncos) arent in the NFC East...

That has been a misnomer about the Cowboys for years now...

But then the 2013 season was played, and the actual schedule the Packers played - in other words, based on the records of the teams during the actual 2013 season - was the 2nd-easiest in the league.

And as for last year:

This is true--and it happens every year. You never know what a team is going to look like when you play them either: What key players may be down due to injury.

LOL @ the Ravens schedule. 2 home games combined between September & October and 6 of the final 9 at home. Who comes up with this garbage?? I know each team has to play 8 home & 8 road, but usually it's a little more balanced then 5 of 7 on the road to start and 6 of 9 at home to finish.

Also, that second Monday night game in week 1 (Vikings vs. San Fran) is a leading candidate for "worst Monday night game of the year" so at least we'll get that over with relatively quickly.
