Well there is some good news. Based on 2008 win percentages the Bears schedule is at .414. The NFC North looks to have the easiest all around as the Bears are 32, the Vikings at 31 and the Packers are at 30th hardest schedule.
Obviously having the Lions (21st) on your schedule twice coming off of a 0-16 season helps those numbers.
So even if Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith screw the pooch this off season at least we got lucky on the schedule.
