    I think it is absolutely insane to say we lost the division after week three. We play the Bears again, we share common opponents. The Bears will lose some games, it is not the end of the world, and certainly not the end of the division race, that is gol 'darnit near laughable.
    I agree with you that it is way to early to make those kind of predictions after 3 games and 1 loss.

    Having said that I were the one who asked that very question in the podcast show, mostly to get you guys fired up. And you answerd as I would have done myself.

    Still I think it is a big blow to lose a homegame against our biggest rival. It'll be tough to take that back on Soldier Field.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    As I stated earlier, if we are going to win big games, we need our Offense to step up.
    They didn't today, and we let the Bears walk out with OUR 3-0 record.


    Too many times, the Vikings Offense stalled in the short end of the field.
    Once on the 13, on the 18, and on the 23.
    All three resulted in FGs.
    Had just ONE of them been a TD, the game would have gone in another direction.

    We saw this against the Panthers and again with the Bears, our Offense cannot seem to maintain drives, much less put the finishing touches on them.
    And, until they do, Minnesota will not be a team to be feared.


    The play-calling isn't helping matters any.
    Too often I see us pass short or run on long yard situations.
    3-8 and we pass for 4 or run for 5, etc.
    We cannot continue doing that.
    The WORST call of the game was the 4th and 2...when not run there?
    There's over a minute left on the clock, we have the Bears "D" on their heels, and we throw a timing pass?!?!?!?
    When this season has Brad and ANY of our receivers exhibited anything remotely looking like a connection where you would put your faith ina
    TIMING route with the game on the line?
    Did Childress think that NOW would be the time?
    The play-calling is horrendous.
    It almost seems like Childress is afraid of the end zone.
    But I think the worst call was the preceeding play - the run on 3rd down.
    This offense is supposed to be built on 5-yard slants - where were those?
    So you get it to 4th and 2 - so what?
    4th-down is do or die, and I never want to be in those situations to win the game.
    Then to compound it by calling that STUPID STUPID STUPID play on 4th down (I agree with you - where the eff is Jermaine Wiggins in this offense???) is just mind-boggling.

    On the fumble - Artis Hicks was slow to get up a couple plays prior to that - Jason Whittle was half-way on to the field when Hicks lumbered his way back into the pocket.
    Hicks lasts one more play, Whittle comes in - next play, Bears D-Lineman blows past Whittle to force the fumble.
    It's just AMAZING to me how often they don't run over the left side.

    I'd rather get blown out than BLOW a game like they did yesterday.
    This one is all on Childress's shoulders, IMHO.

    Good game against a good team. Get over it, move on.
    No.
    I'm not going to get over it and move on.
    Not the day after the game.
    Not when the coaching staff PISSES away the game.
    Childress is 100% responsible for that loss with his cautious play-calling and refusal to go for the end zone.
    It is SHOCKING to me how tentative the offense looks during times when they need to go for the throat.
