Want a reason to believe that the Bears are going to be in the mix in the NFC North in 2009? How about the fact they have the easiest schedule in the league. Here is that story from the Chicago Sun Times:
We touched on the strength-of-schedule issue the Bears had moving forward a few weeks ago, noting their 2009 slate was the easiest in the league, a function of having two games with 0-16 Detroit more than anything else. It is worth noting that the Pittsburgh Steelers just claimed the championship having played the most difficult schedule in the league. What’s really interesting to note is the Bears’ 2008 schedule–after it was completed–was the eighth weakest in the league with opponents having a combined winning percentage of .475.
