I predict a Chicago Bears victory. Not only are the Bears going to win but they're going to crush our Vikings. This team just two years removed from the superbowl is the team to beat in the NFC north. The three games the Bears lost this year are by a combined 8 points: 1 in OT 1 last second FG, and two of the three were on the road. The Bears could easily be 6-0. I predict the Vikings will score no more then 6 points: Adrian Peterson will get stuffed all day long, and Tavaris Jackson will take over for Gus Ferotte due to injury. Chi 37 Mn 6

How I hate loosing to any team especially the Bears or Green Bay for that matter. But the fact is Chilly cannot coach. So I predict our offence will be stagnant again and the outcome will rest on how many points our Defense can score.

If our Defense can score two TD’s I predict we will win 17-14. Since I believe our offense should be good for one or two plays (our players should be able to manage that even with Chilly's offence),we should be able to get a field goal out of it.

Go Vikes please prove me wrong!

A good coach vs. a bad coach...good coach win..bad coach scratches head. Vikings are not going to win until they can find a coach that is smart enough to provide a strong game plan. alot of sacks and possesion for the bears..hate to say this but, BEAR WINS.

An opinion is something we all have and are entitled to. It doesn't have any bearing on the outcome of anything. Kind of like an old song," To each his own."

LOL! Don't tell chicago they have a good coach. Fans there want his head! i mean, look at the abysimal job lovie did last year managing qb's when he attempted to replace kyle orten. To end up with kyle orton after all is said & done proves he's an idiot (as well).

Anyway, our idiot beats their idiot as we have the better team & they have the more significant injuries. should be enough to offset homefield advantage.(chicago' playing corners off the street; we are playing MLB off the street.)

wilf is a genius! keep childress with no qb and you will lose. the core of the team remains solid. at end of year no fans in stands no new stadium and move the team. after he (genius) gets new coach and aqb. what a mastermind.this also benefits the people of minnesota with no team they can spend sundys doing something other than pro football like living a real life . ro footall is boring . just ask wilf. fish on!

The Bears were missing BOTH of their starting CB's.
BOTH! I'm not saying T-Jack is the answer but 4
picks against THAT secondary??? Nothing Charlie
Walters writes is worth the paper it's printed on
(Offering 2 #1 picks for Brady Quinn). Still, the QB position is a huge issue. Gus is 37 and may not even be with the team next year. Jackson may not either. But what has happended to Vikings special teams play? I know they lost their best special teams player in the preseason but weren't there 10 other guys with him? It's not just that we lose games...it's THE WAY we lose them. This one is another headscratcher.

Sean Jensen has picked the Vikings to win every game this season.

My question is whether he's trying to be a suck-up? Or if he is really that silly?
