Eagles Schedule Released

The NFL released the much anticipated schedules of all 32 teams yesterday. It is hard to break down the Eagles schedule at this point, as there are a lot of question marks and new faces going into next season.

Based on 2009 records, the Eagles will have the 9th toughest 2010 schedule. Those projections never seem to hold up, so it doesn’t mean too much. The schedule to me seems like it is a little easier in the first half, and gets harder in the 2nd half of the season – but I feel like I always think that. The Eagles season is basically split into 2, as they get a bye in Week 8. Hopefully Kevin Kolb can feel comfortable playing against a weaker schedule in the first half of the season.

The Eagles open the season on September 12, at home against the Packers at 4:15. The Packers do present a very good defense that Kolb will have to face in Week 1 right off the bat. The Donovan McNabb led Redskins come to town in Week 4 for another late afternoon nationally televised kickoff. The first night game is in Week 5 at San Francisco on Sunday night. The Eagles have 3 Sunday night games, 1 Monday night game, and a Thursday night game, and close the season at home against the Cowboys.

The full schedule is below—

Week 1 - Sun. Sept. 12 – Eagles vs. Green Bay – 4:15 PM

Don't think it's your imagination -- the 2nd half of the schedule IS pretty brutal. Aside from the competition, won't be easy pulling a Monday-nighter in DC on 11/15, followed by a Sunday-nighter the next week vs Giants, then hitting the road to Chicago for a "regular" 1PM start (actually noon there) on 11/28, followed 4 days later by a Thursday-nighter in Houston. Haven't looked at all the schedules, but wonder if the league is deliberately trying to load the back half of the season for many teams with potentially tougher matchups in order to minimize early clinching, thus reducing the likelihood of teams benching their starting line-ups for the final game(s).
