Gotta link? Where did you get that?

I was it on NFL.com but the link wasn't working so I just googled it.

Did the same for the Chargers, Raiders, and Broncos. Opponents are pretty much identical minus 2 teams for each.

I have but when you google it, all the sources I looked at for the Chiefs, Raiders, and Chargers were different and the same.

NFL.com shows a link saying the opponents have been released but for some reason the link gives me a white blank screen.

There is a pre-set scheduling to it.

We play The AFC West, twice. And we rotate through the four NFC divisions , as well as rotating through the three remaining AFC divisions. Then, we play the team that had the same divisional ranking, from the remaining two AFC divisions.

2011 brings our rotations to The NFC North and The AFC East. Leaving the first place teams (Same ranking as The Chiefs in The AFC West.) from The AFC North and South.

Our NFC divisional rotation, starting in 2007, goes North, South, East, West (2010) ... and now, starts again with the North.

Our AFC divisional rotation (excludes the West, our own division), starting in 2008, has been East, North, South (2010)... and now starts back in The East again.

That leaves the remaining two AFC divisions, of which, we will play the teams that finished in the same position as our own team (1st).

And those are The Steelers and The Colts.

In other words, the link is accurate. haha

Home for the Packers and Steelers and on the road for the Bears, Pats, Jets, and Colts...

Don't be shocked to see a worse record in '11 than we had in '10... Don't lose heart and think the team is getting worse. We'll probably be an even more improved team but the schedule in '10 was just a perfect storm for this team.

Winning the division doesn't help you a whole lot the following season.

Wow... this is gonna be a rough schedule...

The rest of the AFC West is almost identical so it don't matter.

I read somewhere that the Raiders are favorite to win the division. We will see. 8 months is a long time and a LOT can happen until then.

yeah... but they're NOT identical. the Chiefs WILL have the toughest schedule in the division. the NFL does its best to assure that in order to make the records as close to the same at the end of the year to promote "parity."

Seconded.

10-6 will be far more impressive with next season's schedule.

Chargers opponents

Home
Denver Broncos Kansas City Chiefs Oakland Raiders Miami Dolphins Buffalo Bills Baltimore Ravens Green Bay Packers Minnesota Vikings

Away
Denver Broncos Kansas City Chiefs Oakland Raiders New England Patriots New York Jets Jacksonville Jaguars Chicago Bears Detroit Lions

Only 2 teams that are different are Chiefs vs Steelers at home/Chargers vs Ravens at home AND Chiefs vs Colts away/Chargers vs Jags away.

Its damn near the same. haha


As for the Raiders, they just flipped the home and away games and replaced them with the Browns and Houston.

It drives me nuts the love the faiders get from the media. They improve slightly and they are the favorites. We improved MORE and we get nothing. Drives me nuts lol.

I stopped listening to the media a long time ago. You know it's been scientifically proven that people lose IQ points for every second they listen to those guys. :lol:

File this thread somewhere safe you will need it this time next year. I am going to say we atleast end with onw more win then we did this year and win our division again. Ok I here you Im nuts right...well no. If we can go from 4 wins to 10 under Haley in one year then after this next draft class and our rookies being in our system for their 2nd year plus key pickups in FA we are going to be a scary team to play. This all happens if the next draft class acts like the last one, and if we add Mcdaniels as our OC watch out because the Chiefs will Spearhead the NFL. Pioli is making us a winner like he did in NE. I dont care that this year was so easy and the next will be harder, our team will have tasted the playoffs this year and will be very hungry, its better if all the other teams just let us win the SB this year.

As scary as that schedule looks(and it is) as a fan it is going to be epic week in and week out. No easy games and if our team keeps improving and we somehow make it to the playoffs next year, battle tested thanks to that schedule, then we will be primed for a real legit SB run.

This year, Baltimore is our toughest game all year and it is finally coming in the playoffs. Thats not a good sign and I dont know if our young team can hang with the "big boys" quite yet.

Also, it is absolutely crucial that we perform better next year against our own division. This year wasnt so hot for us and if we have the same type of performance against the chargers, raiders and broncos that we did this year then that could be the difference between missing the playoffs or going for a super bowl! Personally I am excited to see every single one of those games and can only hope we do something about our O-line, backup qb and yes a running back. Charles wears down if he carries so much so we need someone to keep him fresh, I love TJ but he just isnt explosive enough or big enough to pound the ball when we need to.

We need to get those division games. With a better division record, things will happen. We need to look a #2 seed next year.

The Raiders have been up and down but when they are up they are a powerhouse and cannot be underestimated. Just as the Chiefs are they are also on the rise and more so if they retain Cable as there HC. The Chiefs must have a very good off season in order to stay ahead of the game next season. As much as I Hate the Raiders I'm just sayin don't count them out just yet.....

I don't understand how we get to go indy two consecutive years we played there this season and the last time we played chicago was at chicago and that was the day my daughter was born september 16, 2007 so wouldn't they get to come here this time. I don't think this is accurate
