The Steelers had the toughest schedule in the NFL this year, and now they have the easiest road to the super bowl in years. Do you think it helps to have a tough schedule in the regular season, or do feel that it is better to have a weak one?

I think that having a tough schedule in the NFL regular season is just like practice for the playoffs. I watch more college basketball (than football) and you can tell the teams that the coaches really work their guys in practice. If a game goes into overtime, the ones who work the hardest in practice will be able to play harder longer without getting worn out. I think this is the same in any sport. So those guys that really prepare are the ones who will win in the end. Of course, a lot of it is mental preparation also. Hope you have a good time watching the playoffs today!

I don't think there really is such thing as an easy schedule in the NFL. Any team, with the exception of the lions, has a chance to beat you. Sometimes the "easy" schedules turn out to be the worse.

Not really, you play the people on your schedule. It dosen`t matter who you play if you don`t come to play that day you will lose. If I really had to choose one I would take the easy schedule. Usually, the tougher the schedule the more injuries you have. The easier schedule the more the healthier you are when it counts.
