Awesome; I only "have" to listen to Troy Buck and Joe Aikman once next year.  Maybe never, if I just listen to GB's monday night game on the radio like this past season.
Or you could mute the TV?

Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

I believe that was implied when he said listen to the radio broadcast.

As long as NBC keeps Carrie Underwoods in their Sunday Night intro musical, I'm good!

Full 2022 schedule is released tonight. The Bears have an annual contest where you try to guess the full 18 game schedule, including bye week (opponents and locations are already known). The entry that gets the most right (or one randomly drawn entry from those tied with the most right) wins a pair of tickets to every 2022 game, home and away, with airfare, hotel, and $500 cash for each away game.

Doesn't sound like a prize to me.  It sounds like torture seeing how you will be watching the Bears.

At the very least, it's free weekend trips to Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, Green Bay, Minneapolis, New England, and New York x2

Ah yes, my favorite day of the offseason. I'm tuning out all sources of information until the entire schedule is released this evening.

Detroit Free Press columnist Carlos Monarrez let loose on the Detroit Lions today.

Quote
Now that the 2022 NFL schedule has been released, the league’s other teams know exactly on which days they will lose to the Detroit Lions, who have promised us they’re planning to win the Super Bowl this season.

I’ll pause here while you facepalm yourself so hard that NFL rules require you to enter concussion protocol.

OK, all good?  Great.  Where was I?  Oh, yes, the Lions … are going to win … the Super Bowl.  My computer’s auto-correct program required me to type that three times before it allowed me to override the assumed error.

Alas, I only got one right out of 18. I correctly guessed the week of the game at Dallas. There are 6.4 quadrillion unique ways to arrange 18 items. Of course, restrictions such as byes only being certain weeks, playing division opponents in week 18, and never playing more than 3 in a row at home or away, make the number of realistic arrangements much less.

My Vikings' schedule is weird. We play all of our division rivals at home within the first five weeks and play all of them on the road the last five weeks.

Bears play 4 home games in December/January. NFL trying to get fans on board with the new indoor stadium.

So I've had time to look at the entire schedule, and I love it. The group of reigning division winners that play each other a lot (Cowboys, Packers, Bucs, Rams, Bills, Bengals, Titans, Chiefs) are giving us great matchups just about every week.

Kansas City has literally the most difficult football schedule of all time, at least as of now. Of course at least one of the 27 good teams in the AFC will disappoint.

Can't wait for Bucs/Cowboys in week 1, Rodgers/Brady V in week 3, Mahomes/Brady VI in week 4, Bills/Chiefs rematch in week 7, Rams/Bucs rematch in week 9, Cowboys visit to Lambeau in week 10, Chiefs/Rams rematch in week 12, Chiefs/Bengals rematch in week 13, others.

Dallas has quite a similar schedule to last year: tough first two games, then an easier stretch, then a more difficult stretch, then an easier stretch to close out the season. If they can split the first two I see them 6-2 at midseason, 10-4 at Christmastime. After that it gets difficult to predict, when some teams have their season on the line, some have clinched a playoff spot, some have fired their coaches and unraveled, etc. The ways the season could go south for the Cowboys are if a) Dak gets hurt or b) they start 2-4 or something, the media piles on, tempers flare, McCarthy loses the locker room.

The Packers have three warm weather/dome teams at home in mid-December and later. (The Vikings on New Years Day!).  Should be fun!

Sorry to ruin your fun but that doesn’t matter at all.

Two pieces of good news for Lions fans: 1) they’ve been crowned the undisputed champions of the draft after intense analysis of the 0 combined NFL snaps their draftees have played, and 2) they play the Packers the first Sunday of November. Green Bay has been shockingly bad that weekend (typically week 9). Haven’t won since 2012, which for a franchise that has only missed the playoffs twice in that span, is pretty shocking.

Might as well make my NFL predictions now (and I went through the games individually so the win-loss counts should be at least feasible):

AFC East:
Bills 13-4
Dolphins 9-7-1
Patriots 9-8
Jets 5-12

AFC North:
Bengals 12-5
Ravens 11-6
Browns 10-7
Steelers 8-9

AFC South:
Colts 11-6
Titans 9-8
Texans 6-11
Jaguars 2-15

AFC West:
Broncos 11-6
Chargers 11-6
Chiefs 10-7
Raiders 7-10

AFC Playoffs:
Bills (1)
Bengals (2)
Broncos (3)
Colts (4)
Ravens (5)
Chargers (6)
Chiefs (7)

Wild Card Round:
Bengals over Chiefs
Broncos over Chargers
Ravens over Colts

Divisional Round:
Ravens over Bills
Bengals over Broncos

AFC Championship:
Ravens over Bengals


NFC East:
Eagles 11-6
Cowboys 10-7
Commanders 7-10
Giants 2-15

NFC North:
Vikings 10-7
Packers 10-7
Lions 7-10
Bears 3-13-1

NFC South:
Buccaneers 13-4
Saints 9-8
Falcons 5-12
Panthers 3-14

NFC West:
Rams 13-4
Cardinals 10-7
Seahawks 8-9
49ers 6-11

NFC Playoffs:
Rams (1)
Buccaneers (2)
Eagles (3)
Vikings (4)
Cardinals (5)
Cowboys (6)
Packers (7)

Wild Card Round:
Buccaneers over Packers
Cowboys over Eagles
Cardinals over Vikings

Divisional Round:
Rams over Cowboys
Buccaneers over Cardinals

NFC Championship:
Rams over Buccaneers

Super Bowl:
Ravens over Rams


Hot Takes:
- I'm predicting that the Chiefs and Titans both catch the injury bug this year (similar to how the Ravens and Saints were last year)
- Giants get 2023 first pick. Their team just has nothing good about it.
- I'm predicting that the Lions and Texans have positive seasons compared to the last couple years for them.

Disagree with 1) - the Jets are named winners by many sources

Deshaun Watson's new team the Browns will visit my Texans this fall....whether Deshaun actually plays (or serves his suspension) in NRG Stadium remains to be seen.

I hadn't heard any pundit say anybody but the Jets. Some of that is the NY bias, especially on ESPN. But when you get four probable starters because you have four picks in the top 36 including 2 in the top 10 it's not hard to "win" the draft.

Just be grateful Matt Millen is no longer doing the Lions drafts. Millen was so bad even Packers fans like me were feeling sorry for Lions fans.

Packers:
2013- Loss, Rodgers Hurt vs Bears
2014- Won on 11/9 vs Bears, had bye week the week 11/2 Sunday
2015- Loss vs Peyton Manning's Broncos
2016- Loss vs Andrew Luck Colts
2017- Loss vs Lions, Brett Hundley playing for injured Rodgers
2018- Loss at Patriots
2019- Loss at Chargers
2020- Loss vs Vikings
2021- Loss at Chiefs, Love playing for Rodgers(Covid)

Well three of the first Sundays in November Rodgers was out.....if Matt Flynn wasn't starting those weeks Packers lost.  2014 they had a bye week on the first November weekend.  Good luck vs Brady, Mahomes, and Manning any year of their careers.  Say what you want about the Charger and Vikings losses as those teams were below .500 for the year(but in division games in the NFC North are hard regardless of teams records).
