You sound like me when he was the coach here

The Bears schedule is pretty rough for having the 2nd worst record in their conferance.

That's just what I was thinking. Tennessee away is tough but besides that, not too bad. At least we get Philly at home.
But of course in order to win any of those games we gotta fire Wannstedt.
I hear you but I don't think it's going to happen. Let's just hope for Ricky to have as good a season as this one, Fiedler to stay healthy and for the team to find some heart and the ability to put away those teams they seem to have beaten. Stop sitting on leads! And let's hope they play most of their divisional away games and the Giants game when it's still warm.

They are a very good team. On paper. Too bad that's not where they play.

Is it me or the league just wants to see a Packs, Bucs, and Niners matchup year after year? I highly doubt these schedules are lottery or randomly picked by a computer, as claimed by the league.

Schedules are not ramdomly or lottery picked. There is a formula. It is decided before the season starts.

The formula is different this year, because of the re-alignment, but it is is similar to what is has always been.

OK, don't like the new formula already. Packers lost at Tampa this year and gee, look, another trip to Tampa next year. Shouldn't the Bucs be heading to the frozen tundra instead?

(Packer victory this Saturday and it'll be yet another trip)

Formula probably isn't the best word for it. What they used to do was more of a formula.

14 games/year are set in stone. For example, we already know 14 of the opponents (and sites) for the Washington Redskins in the year 2009.

Every team is guaranteed a home date with every team from the other conference once every 8 years. Every team is guaranteed a home date with every team from their own conf (not division) at least once every 6 years.

There are 2 other games each year. Those games are based on your divisional finish each year. Because the Packers finished 1st, they play the 1st place teams from the NFC division that they are not otherwise playing (next year they play the West) - that means Philly and Tampa. They get one of these games at home and one on the road. Pretty simple. It is purely coincidental that they go to Tampa again.

Somehow, I believe it has more to do with TV ratings than the formula itself.
