Chicago Bears Season Outlook: 2nd Quarter

Maurice Jones-Drew

Can MJD be the undoing of the Chicago Bear’s entire season?

According to my own sound reasoning, the Bears will either be 3-1 or 2-2 heading into the 2nd quarter of the 2012 NFL season. All things considered, 2-2 isn’t exactly reason for panic.

Luckily for the Bears, sandwiched between games 5 thru 8 is their bye week in week 6. And the next quartet of opponents appears to be a less daunting bunch… on paper.

But the Jaguars, Lions, Panthers and Titans will all be looking to show the Bears why the game isn’t played on paper.

UConn became possibly the worst BCS team in history last season, mostly because the Big East had to send somebody. The Huskies are an often overlooked program because they haven’t been in D1 all that long, but they have been bowling every year since 2006, won the conference in ’07 (just like last year) and are one of the most up-and-coming programs in all of college football.

This year will be a transition though, as they have a new coach in Paul Pasqualoni. Randy Edsall has moved on to take the Maryland Terrapins job.
