Chicago Bears season preview(first half): It makes me feel like a kid on Christmas.

I am getting so excited for football season! I keep daydreaming about bombs to Devin Hester, and Matt Forte breaking one up the middle. I envision a healthy Tommie Harris striking fear in the heart of opposing Quarterbacks, and a much improved season defensively as a result. I can't wait to see my Bears take on our rivals in Lambeau, and see Jay Cutler throw his first official pass.On paper, the Bears technically have the easiest schedule in the NFL. This is based on the winning percentage of the opposing teams that they play. This might sound like a great setup, but the season has more difficult games than you might believe. The reason the season is ranked the easiest is largely due to the 0-16 Lions that the Bears play twice next year. The Packers and Vikings have the second and third easiest seasons this year as a result of this same statistic.
What the numbers don't show is that the Bears play the Super Bowl champions in week 2 and their runner-ups week 8. Reviewing their schedule, the season looks to be a lot more difficult than portrayed.
