The Bears played a last place shcedule last season and went from the basement to the penthouse in 2006.
Their complement is the Phialdelphia Eagles who played a first place schedule last year and fell to last place in 2006.
With Donovan Mcnabb, this team will improve this year regardless of schedule, but, with the parity-goal of the NFL schedule makers, the Eagles should soar back towards the play-offs.
LOL! Have you looked at their schedule?
The team opens with three of their first four games against the Texans, 49ers and Packers!
I doubt the Eagles sheen has completely worn off but they will be a better value than most of the defenses taken before them.
