Before the NFL schedule is released on Tuesday, the strength of schedule was released for all 32 teams. The Bears have the easiest schedule, with an opponent’s winning percentage of 0.414. It should come as no surprise that the other 2 teams in the NFC North have the second and third easiest schedules thanks to the fourth “team” – the Lions – and their 0-16 record from 2008. The Steelers have the next easiest schedule after the NFC North, which seems kind of unfair since they just won the Super Bowl last season. Of course this is all completely meaningless since teams all change so much during the offseason that last season’s records are essentially meaningless, but it’s fun to think about.

Mike "Boomer" Burzawa
Hello fellow Bears fans!!! Let me take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Mike Burzawa, but those closest to me know me as Boomer. It’s a nickname that I’ve had for many, many years (long before I ever heard of that guy on ESPN) and I thought I’d post under that alias. I’m the new lead blogger for Bear Goggles On (I can’t take credit for the name), where I’ll be sharing my views and perspectives on the team we all love. I’m a lifelong Chicagoan and a die hard fan of Da Bears. I’ve been around for the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. I mean, what was your favorite moment of the Cade McNown era??? The end, if you ask me!!! I have been going on an annual trip to an away Bears game since 1996, so I’ve seen many different sports cities and I’m here to tell you that Chicago fans are second to none!!! As the greatest fans in the NFL, we deserve the greatest blog. I’ll do my best, but I’ll need your help. I plan to share my take on the team and give a true fan’s perspective. Every once in a while, I’ll put the “Bear” goggles on and sip the Orange and Blue Kool Aide, but I’ll also “Lower the Boom” when I think it’s called for. Most of all, I want to have some fun and the best way to do that is through your participation, so please feel free to comment, e-mail and share this site with other Bears fans.
