    Key Matchups for Chicago game

    Last week I think everyone nailed the key matchup being Johnson vs. Peppers.
    Although maybe we were wrong, that matchup was significant but we obviously lost that battle but won the game.


    Anyway, what is the biggest matchup this week?...

    Richardson vs. Urlacher on rushing plays
    Napo vs. Grossman
    Leber vs. Chicago TEs
    MN Safeties vs. play fake - this gets my vote
    Williamson vs. Tillman

    what are your thoughts?

    Although it may not have the biggest direct impact on the game, I think Pat Williams and Kreutz will be huge. With the back and forth they had last year in regards to pro-bowl births, it could be big.

    I think its between the O line & D line for each team. If we get to Rex & pressure him, he will panic & make mistakes. BJ is smarter & wiser, bit how much of a beating can he take? We need to protect him & slap Rex around. He's young and relatively inexperienced (not many starts). We need to win the turnover game.

    [s]Richardson vs. Urlacher on rushing plays[/s] O-line vs D-Line

    I think we win here, bears defense is not as good as people think.
    The o-line will wear them down & chester should see some nice holes.

    [s]Napo[/s] DB's vs. Grossman

    I think rex is in for a long game.

    Leber vs. Chicago TEs
    Chicago TE's any day of the week.
    Desmond Clark is their leading receiver & has as good of numbers as t-will.
    Leber has 2 tackles & 1 assist in 2 games,
    No contest.

    MN Safeties vs. play fake - this gets my vote
    Can't say, depends more on if the front 7 shut down the rush.

    Williamson vs. Tillman
    T-will would win the 1v1's but I doubt they will leave Tillman on an island.

    Keep blitzing Napo.

    Let the DB's play their game, they'll make it do what it do.

    Too bad there is no Eraser coming off the edge this week, but hopefully that doesn't cause any problems.

    I think the biggest matchup has got to be Urlacher vs Taylor, and Bears D-line vs Vikes O-line.

    Gotta throw in Ogunleye against Johnson.. If MJ can rebound and keep him in check it will help alot.. We need that right side to pick up some slack!

    Chester Taylor vs. Bear Front 7

    The 'stellar' Chicago defense let Ahman Green have over 100 yds in week one (with a 5.5 yd avg.). If they do that against us, we have a good chance of going away with the W

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I 100% agree with this.
    If Johnson doesn't step it up we may be in for a long day.
    If MJ holds his own, I think we win.
    Artis Hicks and TWill are probable and Marcus Robinson is questionable for the game.
    Hopefully we won't have to use Rosenthal.
    If he has to play I think we lose.

    Re: Key Matchups for Chicago game

    it's def gonna come down to the lines. as B.chill said, u win and loose on the lines

    our O line should be able to wear down the Bears front. but our D line must ome up big and put preassure on da bears backfield. if we can shut down their run, and hurry grossman we'll have the game. it'll be low production again, but i think our D will make the stand, and our O line will make the push foward. C.t might not rack up long runs against the Bears, but he'll have enouf short ones to rack up 100.

    I think the Viking Cheerleaders will kick but in an all out catfight with Da Bears Cheerleaders.

    Look for plenty of hissing and meowing on the sidelines when the game gets out of hand . . .
