  1. Chicago Bears schedule analysis

    Kevin Seifert

    Breakdown: New coach Marc Trestman will benefit from a relatively rare start to the schedule: two consecutive home games. The Chicago Bears haven't received that gift from the schedule makers since 1999. Overall, however, Trestman's first month on...

  2. Green Bay Packers schedule analysis

    Kevin Seifert

    Breakdown: The Packers' 2013 schedule has a familiar ring. They open with the San Francisco 49ers for the second consecutive season, a quirk that also affords a rematch with the team that knocked them from the 2012 playoffs. They'll play the Detroit ...

  6. Green Bay Packers schedule analysis

    Kevin Seifert

    Breakdown: The Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl two years ago and were 15-1 last season, but believe it or not, 2012 will mark the first year they have had five prime-time games in one regular season. They'll host the Chicago Bears (Thursday n...

  8. Prepping for the NFL schedule release

    Kevin Seifert

    We're kinda sorta expecting to see the NFL schedule released sometime early next week, unless of course it isn't. It's probably a safe assumption, though. It will give the NFL a focal point next week before draft hysteria hits during the week of Apri...

    Kevin Seifert

    Breakdown: Figures. The NFL gave the Detroit Lions their first prime-time game in five years, a Week 5 game at Ford Field against the Chicago Bears. But piled in front is a difficult first opening quarter of the season. Put it this way: The Lions wou...

  12. Chicago Bears schedule analysis

    Kevin Seifert

    Breakdown: The first thing I noticed was the imbalance of home games. Last season there was heightened discussion of the Solider Field grass, and the Bears' steadfast refusal to convert to artificial turf. I'm sure it's only a coincidence that the B...

  13. BBAO: 'Broken' vs. 'injured' fingers

    Kevin Seifert

    We're Black and Blue All Over: Why is the NFL considering a reorganization of its offseason schedule, as reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter? Naturally, to avoid the kind of quiet period that leaves players, teams and media members fighting over whet...

    Kevin Seifert

    We're Black and Blue All Over: The NFC North received a total of 16 nationally-televised games as part of the NFL's 2012 schedule, but to me the most groundbreaking news item was buried deep within the Green Bay Packers' news release. It read: "In...
