.500 Campaign For Lovie

The Bears will have their ups and downs in Lovie Smith's first season.

Chicago will have 2 three-game losing streaks and a four-game winning streak. Unfortunately Green Bay will sweep the Bears for a fourth straight year. However the Bears will win one game they should lose and lose a game they are favored to win, so that could mean a victory over the Packers after all.

Another factor to consider about predictions at this point in the year is that a lot can change between now and the start of the season. Still it makes for good discussion.

Here's how the Bears will finish 8-8 in 2004.
