Bengals sitting pretty in the middle @ 14th, combined winning percentage of opponents = 0.500

I don't really think to much about the strength of schedule when it comes to the Bengals. You need to go out and beat whomever you play.

That might seem all "master of the obvious" but things change each year with FA and the draft.

I will admit to looking at strength of schedule and where teams play certain games when putting together the players I target in Fantasy Football.

Tis true, - but it's got to be a pyschological boost to players, and fans, when you think you've got a chance in each game/season to win.

Similarly the Browns may have the opposite feeling. After a poor season last year they face a pretty tough schedule (on paper) so you would think that their expectations would naturally be lower.

One thing that strength of schedule does not include is where you are playing those teams. Playing the Eagles in Philly is a different story than playing them in Cincinnati as it is with Kansas City. Playing them in KC is a much different challenge than at PBS. So ideally you want to play the weaker teams on the road and the tougher teams at home.

I don't get the bewilderment of how hard the Browns schedule is just because they were the last place team.

I mean it could have something to do with them having to play 6 games within a division that sent 3 teams to the playoffs last year.

Somethings you simply can't get around regardless of how good or bad you may do in a given season.

No, I don't feel the slightest bit sorry for them.

Agreed. Not that I would ever feel bad for the Browns as I despise them. But, the best way for the Browns to improve their strength of schedule is to start beating the teams in the AFC North. Going 0-6 year after year isn't going to do much for them in terms of SOS.
