At long last, it’s finally out! Grab your favorite drink and let’s go through it.
Week 1: 49ers at Bears- Not sold on the 49ers, Win.
Week 2: At Packers- Hoping it will be closer this year. It’s early, so maybe they can pull off the upset. I’m marking it down as a Loss for the Bears.
Week 3: Texans at Bears- They have had success with the Texans in the past. I expect it to continue. Win.
Week 4: At Giants- Giants are one of the few really bad teams in the NFL. On the plus side, they might have a healthy Saquon Barkley. If he’s even still on the team. I dunno, I haven’t been keeping up. Win.
Week 5: At Vikings- Vikings aren’t particularly great, so this one might be a coin toss. I am going to give it to the Vikings simply because they are at home. Loss.
Week 6: WFC at Bears- I refuse to call them the Commanders. They still suck. Win
Week 7: At Patriots- No Brady, but Belichick is still one of the best, and it’s a home game for them. Loss.
Week 8: At Dallas- Probably their only “tough stretch” of the season with back to back away games from two tough opponents. Loss.
Week 9: Dolphins at Bears- Ah, Miami. They will get better eventually, but I don’t think this season. Win.
Week 10: Lions at Bears- Win.
Week 11: At Falcons- Falcons are-who is even their QB? Win.
Week 12: At Jets- Probably the easiest 2 games of the year. Win
Week 13: Packers at Bears- Loss
Week 14: BYE
Week 15: Eagles at Bears- With a week to prepare and get healthy, the Bears will have that going for them, which is nice. Gonna give a slight edge to the home team. Win.
Week 16: Bills at Bears- The only thing I can say about this game is it’s at home for the beloved. If Buffalo is competing for a playoff spot (or seeding) it could be nasty. If the Bills have a big enough lead over the division, they might sit some players. Loss
Week 17: At Lions- Win.
Week 18: Vikings at Bears- If the Bears have 9 wins going into this game that will make it really tough on the Vikings who generally are not healthy by this time of the season. W.
Looking over the totals it looks like I have the Bears down for 10 wins. Am I dreaming? I don’t think so. I am not saying the Bears will be that good or that competitive. I just don’t think their opponents are that tough either. It’s all in the hands of the coaches. Can they help Fields get to the next level? We shall see!
