2008 Season set to Kick Off

I love it when training camp begins, which it will on Wednesday. Ahh, football is back.

I hate it when training camp opens. It’s a reminder that Summer is drawing to a close, and because time files, before we know it we’ll be freezing in January again.

Yesterday the Tribune and Sun-Times published their annual “camp questions” articles. David Haugh’s Tribune article is here; Brad Bigg’s column in the Sun-Times is here.

The headline for the Tribune’s article in the print edition is “Doubt? No Question.”  That started me thinking about the meaning of that, and I give them credit for a clever headline.

My take on 2008 at this point?  There certainly is a lot of doubt as to whether the Bears will be good.  But I would say that actually, there is more doubt as to whether they’ll be bad in 2008.  That’s about the best I can say for their prospects.

  1. Fall always has, always will be my favorite time of the year. Football has a lot to do with it. This will be the most interesting training camp for the Bears in quite some time. Lots of questions to be answered. I’m not one of those people that jumps to conclusions right away. I will wait until what I see in camp before I make an assessment.

  2. Two days till the pads come out. Ice cold beer, grilling out, and football! The anticipation is killing me. I hope it will last.

  3. Oh yeah, I can see and feel it now. The only game I’ll wind up going to will be the coldest game of the year. For some reason it always ends up that way. Still, last year I saw the Bears embarrass Favre and the Pack in brutal, cold and windy conditions, so it was well worth it. Here’s to the Bears sweeping the Pack again in 2008!

  4. Amen to that! I’m just praising the lord that I get to see them twice. The first time will be on 10/19 when Adrian Peterson breaks through the line and Mike Brown puts him (and realistically, himself too) out for the season. Then the Bears come to St. Louis and embarrass a team that got blacked out in it’s own market last year. Disgraceful. Personally, I would rather be freezing my tender bits off than sitting in a dome. FOOTBALL WAS MADE TO BE PLAYED OUTDOORS!!!
