    Peterson poses bigger challenge in a bigger game

    According to Chicago Tribune Article:

    Division lead at stake for Bears, Vikings

    By Vaughn McClure | Tribune reporter
    10:04 PM CST, November 24, 2008


    "You could say [this is] the biggest game we've had in our division in a long time," Smith said.

    "They're a good football team. They've been playing well, especially here of late. We know them well. They know us well. Should be a heck of a game."


    Well said, Lovie.

    I am a bit worried about their passing attack.

    I am hoping some yutz Bore defender tweaks Ortons ankle again in practice so he is a bit off his game.
    ;D

    I don't have
    very good feeling about this game

    It was a fluke we were putting up that many points

    If we get into a shootout again we will be on the bottom end

    I hope we can pull this off.. Im just very nervous

    Lol the vikings drop every important game so i think we will lose

    We need to beat baltimore to make the playoffs in 2005? we lost

    We needed to beat the Redskins to guarantee a playoff spot in 2004. We lost

    Once again we must beat the redskins to get a playoff spot. We lose again


    Anyone see the trend? we can't win when it means the most. So my hopes are down

    Don't forget that they scored most of their points off of bad mistakes made by us, weather it be special teams or one of Gus's interceptions(I believe he threw 4 in that game).


    If we can play a game without making as many mistakes as we made in that game I like our chances.
    If we turn the ball over or have special teams mishaps the Bears are a team that know how to take advantage.

    It was a fluke, wont happen again.
    We had more passing yards, and 3 times as many rushing yards. The only reason they won that game was a pair of fumbles returned for TD's along with 4 ints. If they can play with out the turnovers they should win. I feel very good about this game at home. Of course it will be high anxiety because the stakes are so great.

    orton had all day to throw in the game at soldier field, I'm guessing that won't be the case in the dome where are pass rush has been dominant in every game this year.
