Welcome back Bears fans!  You know that itch you’ve had for the last several months???  It’s time to scratch it.  The Bears open the 2014 preseason schedule with a home date versus Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles.  The last time the Bears faced the Eagles, it was ugly.  Really ugly.  Like 54-11 ugly.

While it will be great to have Chicago Bears football back, let’s all remember this is a preseason game.  It’s not like watching a regular season game.  I have a few Do’s and Don’ts for you to keep in mind as you watch the Beloved return to action.

DO…

Do be sure to catch the start of the game, especially if you want to get a glimpse of your favorite Bears.

DON’T…

Don’t get hung up about how much time the starters on offense and defense get.  I wouldn’t be shocked if some of the vets and critical players get minimal or no action.  Why put Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall or Matt Forte at risk?

DO…

Do care about injuries.  That’s what could define your season more than any other part of the game.

DON’T…

Don’t care about the final score.  As long as you get out healthy, you’ve won the game.
