    Green Bay Packers: 8-8-0 (.500)
    Strength of Schedule: .500
    Opponents Record: 128-128-0

    Chicago Bears *: 13-3-0 (.813)
    Strength of Schedule: .430
    Opponents Record: 110-146-0



    I wouldn't read too much into this.
    A team that wins 13 games gave 13 opponents a L gives their SoS weaker.
    A team that loses 8 games gave 8 oppones a W gives their SoS strength.

    Regardless, I thought it was cool.

    A major part of the reason for the Bears strength of schedule was the records of the North Division teams in 2005, like 4-12 in Green Bay.

    Take out the games against Green Bay, Detroit and the Vikes and then calculate it.

    Not sure where you are getting 2005 from. This is stat was based off 2006.

    For Packers
    Minus Lions, Vikings and Bears = 0.5096
    106 - 102

    For Bears
    Minus Lions, Vkings and Packers = 0.4471
    93 - 115


    So now what calculations do you want done?

    if a train leaves St. Louis travelling west at 65 mph, and a train leaves Los Angeles travelling east at 75 mph, considering they will converge...

    Actually the thing that I think people overlook by looking at the record is that the Bears BEAT those bad teams, and for the most parted the Bears dominated those games.

    The Packers didn't beat those teams, and while they stayed in some of those games, the fact that they couldn't dominate, let alone win, shows the Packers still have a ways to go before being on par with the best team in the NFC North... IMHO

    The interesting thing though is that the Bears in 2006 were 3-1 vs playoff teams during the regular season.

    The Packers were 1-6 vs playoff teams during the 2006 regular season.

    With 2 playoff wins the Bears are now 5-1 vs playoff teams.

    Yea, a win really isn't a win unless you blow the team out. What column is that in again?
