Seems like a fairly fair schedule.  There are none of those 3 game road trips, nor is there a 3 game homestand, and we essentially alternate home and away for the first half of the season.  My focus always goes to the 2 games against the Bears, both of which will be in the latter half of the season, and weather should be a factor in both games.  I wouldn't have it any other way.  I don't like starting the season against 2 division opponents right away.  Don't take it as I think we are getting screwed, it's just a personal preference of mine that we wait until week 3 or 4 to play teams within the division.  It overall seems to be a little tougher than last season as the AFC South is a big upgrade over the AFC West, but the NFC South is a downgrade from the NFC East.  We have 4 prime time games and will be throwing the new QB into the fire right off the bat.  Living in Chicago, I will probably have to go to the bar to catch the Packers play at least 6 times due to playing at the same time as the Bears.
