    Vikings VS Da Bears

    VIKINGS OFFENSE - OVERALL (20), RUSH (3), PASS (30)

    VIKINGS DEFENSE - OVERALL (13T), RUSH (14), PASS (16)

    BEARS OFFENSE - OVERALL (30), RUSH (10), PASS (31)

    BEARS DEFENSE - OVERALL (5), RUSH (8), PASS (11)

    I think we should be able to win at least one of the Bears games based on the above. I think if Cutler is out Sun. we could sweep them. Do you think I have the purple shades on much???? Happy Gobble Day to one and all.

    I think our D will be able to handle their O, with or without Cutler. Ofc I'd feel more confident if Cutler is out because Campbell just flat out sucks. Although our D has been known to make shitty QB's look like pro-bowlers so who knows. Forte just doesn't scare me for some reason. I also think we finally have a good enough special teams to handle Hester. However, I think Ponder is going to struggle big time vs that opportunistic defense. I could see him having a 4 pick day if he throws up too many of those under pressure floaters. I think we're going to need one of those 200 yd games from AP to beat the Bears at Soldier Field.

    “At a certain point, a player, a man, needs to grit his teeth, buck up and win a fight,”Tice said
    I'm not sure how the Vikings defense can counter the Bears offensive game plan, oh wait we have Singletary and his "We go out, we hit people in the mouth" lets see how your teeth gritting works Mr Tice after a sock in the mouth. It could be like watching to intelletual titans battling, who will blink first, which head coach will do a facepalm first



    well I guess it could be a player

    Hope its not me

    We NEED to win this game for a shot a tplayoffs. Losing this is losing a playoff spot.

    We have three winnable games left this season. @ Chicago, home vs. Chicago and @ St. Louis.

    Green Bay Looks like the team they were the past two seasons, Houston, although looking weak vs. the Lions right now, is a very tough road game. Chicago is honestly nothing special.


    Keys to winning:
    Establish an offensive identity early. If we're going to run ball control offense, then get going. I would LOVe to see a play action bomb to start the game like we saw last year vs. the Packers at home. With how we've been running, I think that can work.

    More importantly though, we need to establish the run game, get some completions, get Ponder's confidence up. We need to get ahead early. We aren't built to come back from behind. Our D is built to attack with a lead, not to stop a team at midfield and mount a comeback.

    Running can be effective against the bears. Play action should be huge. I was watching NFLN, they broke down the bears, and show that despite being labeled as a "tampa 2" team, they run a single high safety almost 50% of the time. With 8 defenders int he box and one safety deep, our play action passes should be highly effective.

    On Defense, we can't afford to sit back in zones and play "bend but don't break" defense. It simply won't work.

    We see how bad the Bears DL is, we need to attack them. Don't go overboard with the blitzes, but a well-timed/executed delayed blitz should confuse them and get a sack. The 49ers were able to get great pressure on monday by only bringing 4 most of the time. Granted out of a 3-4, that's harder to defend then a 4-3, but still.

    Allen, Robison, KW, our other DT rotation and Griffen should be all over the QB. If it's Campbell, even better. Force him out of the pocket. He can run, but he's not nearly as threatening as say an RGIII or Russel Wilson.

    The truth is, in the secondary, they have only ONE guy we need to watch for. Brandon Marshall is their only threat. Their top four receivers outside of Marshall: Forte, Hester, Jeffrey and Bennett this season have combined for 77 catches, 775 yards and 3 TDs. That's under 20 rec, 194 yards and less than a td per person. Not very threatening.

    The bears coming off a schellacking are going to be hungry and they own us at home. With that being said, get AD going right away to loosen up the d, CP keep spreading the ball around....we buck the trend of losing in chitown, we win.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    On paper, we should win this...but I have two main fears!

    1. Our offense totally shuts down and is unable to move the ball or coughs the ball up

    2. Our defense at times can get shredded by the running game. I can see Forte shredding us up.

    You forgot your 3rd fear, which is how we seem to find ways to lose the games we should win on paper.
