We will beat the Lions on opening day.

Remember how bad we were last year.  I really like Julius Peppers, but at no point did I think that if only we had a better defensive end we wouldn't be such a pitiful team.  To me it was obvious we were bad for several reasons.  Top amongst those were a bad offensive line, bad receivers and a bad secondary.  The only roster moves made to address those issues were the acquisition of Chris Harris and the drafting of Major Wright, which were good moves but hard to get too excited about. 

 

So to sum it up we still don't have decent blockers and even though our pass catchers have a glint of potential, they still are not very good at pass catching.

 

Sure we hired some more experienced coaches, but left them the same junk to work with.  It is like revamping the cooking staff but refusing to change the menu.  Put Wolfgang Puck in a McDonald's kitchen and the best you are going to get is a really good chicken McNugget.  So we are trying to perfect the chicken McNugget while other teams are deciding what temperature they want to cook their filet mignon.  This will not end well.

 

I hope I am wrong and that I have to eat my words (I am clearly hungry), but I see us losing to the Lions on opening day and when we play them later in the season.  Yup we will lose to the Lions both times we play them.  I don't see us finishing any better then last in the NFC North.

 

I am excited for the start of the season, but my enthusiasm is tempered by the fact that once again the Chicago Bears are not very good.

 

 

(Side note:  tackle first, then call yourselves the Monsters of the Midway)

 

update:

I will take the win, butt that was ugly.  Other then the scoreboard, it still feels like a loss.
