    Well you can only play who is on your schedule.

    I like the fact that the NFL has a system in place for determining the schedule. While they can still play around with "flex" games and primetime games a little, the opponent that you will play next year can be determined at the end of the season, and there is no mysterious lottery or political influence.

    It is all based upon a rotation, your division, and how you finished the year.

    You never know. What could look like a tough schedule today could end up being easier by time the season rolls around.

    That's true Butkus, but right now that road schedule looks pretty brutal.

    If we want to be the best, then we have to be able to beat the best. Emery and Trestman are tasked with building a team that will do this. It's a tough task, but that's the way it is.

    If we see an 8 win season, and Lovie Smith takes a 4-win Tampa team to the playoffs this year, we'll see some fans pretty upset. We'd better be in the playoffs this year or the Trestman honeymoon will be over for a number of fans. A lot of trust has been put into Mel Tucker building a solid defense. If Mel falls on his face again, then watch the pitchforks and torches come out.

    I don't care what our record is as long as we make the playoff and even though it looks like a brutal schedule I think we can do it. Last year we almost beat the Packers twice, with a healthy Cutler, + one more year in Trestman system + an actually defense the chances of beating Packers twice is pretty good imo
