Opponents learn when they'll lose against the Bears on Tuesday

You can't judge a book by its cover. We've all heard that adage
before and it speaks true to the Bears schedule. Here's another adage...
You can't predict a team's record by its schedule. Here's another... Just
because a team looks like they have a tough schedule doesn't mean that
it will. Bottom line, no matter what level of expertise you have of the
game of football (most of us have minimal - let's face it), you can't
predict a team's record.

Every year, when the NFL releases the
schedule, prognosticators will predict what the Bears' record will be.
Last year, Peter King penciled in the Bears to make the Super Bowl
after the Jay Cutler trade.  Most everyone else thought the Bears would
at the very least make the playoffs. Last year, I predicted the Bears
would finish 13-3 and win the Super Bowl. Most everyone was wrong. I
was dead wrong. You can't predict injuries, off the field drama or
anything else that might happen and how it will affect the team.

The NFL will release the 2010 schedule on Tuesday, April 20th. Here are the teams that will line up to get a beat down:

Home: Detroit, Green Bay, Minnesota, Philadelphia, Washington, New England, N.Y. Jets, Seattle

Away: Detroit, Green Bay, Minnesota, Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Buffalo, Miami, Carolina
