10-6, no way we sweep through the NFCN and we also have Rams, Eagles, Saints, etc...brutal schedule.

I think we get in as a WC, and rip through the playoffs and win the SB. We'll be battle tested if we get there.

The cost of success? Rarely enjoying a midday Sunday football game with your favorite team.

Living in an area of Iowa where it's not guaranteed the Bears will be broadcasted here if they kickoff the same time as the Packers/Vikings, I welcome afternoon/primetimes as much as a noon kickoff is preferred.

Sunday Ticket now costs two arms and a leg, so I would much rather have primetime games than having to take out a second mortgage to be able to see the Bears games.

I cancelled NFL Pkg several years ago..as Bears were in the Fox disaster.. I saw every game via "Nigerian Links"..and will be so this year.
GTV and NFL are seemingly headed for a divorce. NFL wants more out of area streaming..and ESPN looks like a fit..also Verizion gives streams as part of cell package..

I still miss the Big Dish days were I could catch uploads..with Ditka swearing about everything including the Hot Dogs.. Madden was also quite entertaining..

As soon as NFL Sunday Ticket moves to a streaming service, DirecTV won't see another nickle of my money.

How popular is NFL Game Pass over there?
It's my lifeline over here in the UK and other than some reliability issues a great product IMO.

With regards to the Bears schedule this year... I'm pretty conflicted....
Chuffed that we're getting the attention and in prime time a lot this year... but also gutted that we're in prime time this year because that means some horrendously late nights and subsequently horrible mornings at work the following day!

Agreed regarding Gamepass in the UK - it’s possibly the best valued sports package available, especially with all the added content (NFL gameday morning, NFL Network, A Football life etc) For less than £200 for the season I don’t even bother considering dodgy streams.

Managed to get across to Bears v Pittsburgh in 2017, went to Miami last year and have booked Rams away this year, so fortunately have had some live Bears action the last couple of years; Oakland at London is ironically going to be the hardest one to get tickets for!

My own stream of consciousness, but I think I’m going to pass on Sunday ticket this year. The Bears are in prime time a lot, very frequently do not overlap in time slot with the Broncos (I live in Colorado), and they’re a good team so a lot of their noon games should get wide coverage. I’m probably only looking at a couple weeks of figuring out how to catch the games this season.

Compared and contrasted the scheduled start times of Bears/Chiefs/Packers/Vikings as if they kickoff at the same time when not playing each other, it's a guessing game which game will get broadcasted locally. And now that AFC games aren't exclusively broadcasted on CBS and NFC games on FOX, I now have to deal with the Chiefs possibly being broadcasted over the Bears if they're scheduled for the same time and network. Thanks to all of the prime time/late afternoon/Thursday games the Bears are scheduled for, I'll get 12 of the Bears game without conflict. Not worth getting Sunday Ticket when that many games are a given.

Living in Dallas I either get the Cowboys or Texans. Occasionally the Cards and Chiefs.
