2010 Printable NFL Schedule

NFL Schedule 2010

Ok so here we are – the 2010 NFL Schedule is due to be released any time now has been released and I’m really only concerned with my New Orleans Saints 2010 schedule.

Well ok that’s a lie as well, I’m concerned with the entire schedule but particularly the Southwest Division which we owned in the 2009-2010 football season.

NFL Schedule Update: Getting a complete NFL 2010 schedule is no small task. I’ve been looking high and low for one for a while that covers every week of the season for each team in a good printable format (call me old fashioned). Seriously, I found schedules for Google Calendar (clunky and tough to manage) and I found a few in Microsoft Excel but the formats were never very good. So I put my own together:

Get the Complete 2010 NFL Schedule right here or go grab the printable 2010 NFL Schedule. The printable version was one I made up and tested on my own printer. It should work just fine.

If you find the printable version useful then do me a favour and donate to The Dusan Nedelko Foundation. I’d REALLY appreciate it.

Note!

Keep an eye on this article and bookmark it. I’m priming for the regular season kick off and it means that my fantasy leagues are kicking off, I’m in a few handicapping contests and I’m all over this football season. I’ll be updating the Saints entire schedule with my notes and my calls on each game. It won’t happen overnight but I’m slowly plugging away at it whenever I get time. Stay tuned and bookmark it!

There really isn’t much to write about just at this moment You can check out this super nifty NFL interactive schedule for the Saints 2010 Schedule – you know we’re going to win it all again this coming season. *gulp*

How is the NFL Schedule Determined?

For those of you who don’t know how a schedule is determined:

Divisional Games: 6 games (one each home and away) versus a team’s three divisional opponents.
Inter-Conference Rotation: 4 games (2 home, 2 away) versus teams from another division, by rotation, from the opposite conference.
Intra-Conference Rotation: 4 games (2 home, 2 away) versus teams from another division, by rotation, within a team’s conference.
Standings Based Matchups: 2 games (1 home, 1 away) versus teams with the same standing from the 2 remaining division within a team’s conference.

Here are some NFL Schedule rumors with the current status of the rumor (confirmed or unconfirmed) – obviously I’ll be updating the rumors over the next hour but in the meantime this is pretty interesting:

– Confirmed: The Saints will kick off the season on Thursday, September 9, at home in an NFC Championship rematch against the Vikings.

– Confirmed: The Buffalo Bills will host the Chicago Bears on November 7 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.

– Unconfirmed: The Minnesota Vikings will visit the New York Jets in the evening matchup on Thanksgiving Day.

– Unconfirmed: The Lions will host the Patriots on Thanksgiving Day.

– Unconfirmed: The Cincinnati Bengals will host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night football on November 8

Think that was confusing? You must be glad I’m not nearly as into NCAA Football and the BCS Standings calculations.

Alrighty then – the NFL 2010 Schedule is going to be released on April 22nd (that’s today) at 7pm Eastern (1 hour 44 minutes away) an it’s probably best to watch it on the NFL Network or online at the NFL’s Official website

16 Dec 27 NO @ ATL Georgia Dome 8:30 PM Tickets ESPN
17 Jan 02 TB @ NO Superdome 1:00 PM Tickets FOX

This schedule is solid and not too bad at all.

Saints Prediction: I’m going to say we have a solid chance of being 7-0 going into Week 8.

Week 1 @home vs. Minnesota: Some of it hinges on the Brett Favre – I’m picturing him holding out right up until the season starts, and then a scene unfolding like the end of Dodgeball where Lance Armstrong talks to Vince Vaughn and gets him back in the game – remember “quitting is a permenant solution to a temporary probem”.

If Brett Favre is back then we have a rematch of the NFC Championship game and Brett Favre’s epically stupid play handling. Although it would be awesome to see Favre playing so I can witness another epic choke. Don’t forget you can always count on Brett Favre to make an epic toss at the worst possible time for an interception. Consistency is everything.

The other toughie might be Week 4 at Carolina, classically The Saints have had trouble with Carolina and that could also be a difficult game.

Update: So Brett Favre is back again which was pretty much what I was thinking he would do. Waffle until the last minute forcing three of his team mates to skip a practice then have to fly out an try to convince him to return. Way to go for leadership there Brett.

Event though he’s a game changer I don’t think he’s going to make it through the entire season unscathed. He’s just getting older plus in the NFC Championship game last season it become very apparent that the Vikings O-line has been figured out by NFL defensive lines.

I’m not the only one thinking along these lines – even NFL oddsmakers and handicappers are predicting that Favre won’t play the entire season.

Week 1 NFL Pick: New Orleans Saints 31 – Minnesota Vikings 24

Week 2 – New Orleans at San Francisco

Mike Singletary is doing a good job with the 49ers – and they look good this preseason so far. Their main weakness really is Alex Smith.

I’m still going to call a comfortable Saints victory here.

P.S. More analysis to come.

Week 2 NFL Pick: New Orleans Saints 21 – San Francisco 49ers 10

Week 8 at Pittsburgh – well this one depends on the trade rumors. I’m not sure that Pittsburgh is going to trade away Big Ben even though he’s always getting himself into trouble with girls who claim sexual assault. I mean Ben I know you’re in the public eye but seriously I don’t know what is up with all these crazies constantly making baseless allegations against ya! I mean really look at these baseless allegations:

“Significant questions about what occurred persist,” Bright said. The woman was eventually driven to the hospital by friends, and an emergency room doctor and two nurses examined her. Bright said they noted a superficial laceration, bruising and slight bleeding in her genital area, but that everything else was normal and that the doctor could not say definitively that the bruising was from any kind of trauma or sexual assault. The doctor and nurses collected a standard rape evidence kit. Initial testing found human male DNA present, although the emergency room doctor found no evidence of semen. Further testing was done, but Bright said that because the sample was so small, a DNA profile could not be obtained.

What a fantastic guy. Ben you deserve to be not only beaten up up to lose every football game you ever play – ever.

I’m going to keep updating my 2010 Saints predictions and prognostications.

Stay Tuned.
