NFL Week 1

Later this week, a new season of the National Football League will kick off, as usual, with the defending Super Bowl champions playing on Thursday night.

Last year's season felt like a blur to me, with the craziness of the Presidential election, but especially with the overwhelmingly intense run to a World Series championship by the Chicago Cubs. As fall begins, football will once again, not my be my major focus sports-wise, but I still hope to be entertained. Of course my team, the Chicago Bears, were horrible last year, and with their record came a very high draft pick, and the hope that Mitch (or Mitchell) Trubisky will be the long awaited savior at Quarterback. He will begin his rookie season on the bench though, even as the Bears are expected to have an at least slightly better record than last year's 3-13 showing. The Trubisky Watch is clearly on though, as it seems to be just a matter of time, this season, before he eventually makes his debut as a starter.

As always, these are not predictions, but simply a listing of which teams I want to win each game. While I have no high expectations for the Bears this season, as always, I will root, as applicable, for what is in their best interest in regards to the season.
