If the defense continues to play up to snuff, they can stop The Bears. I only have two real worries: Special Teams coverage. And can the offense actually score more than 15 or 16 points.- Oops. Three. Can they take the crowd out of it by capturing the momentum?

If the Vikes special teams continue their abysmal play the Bears could bring back the "Fridge," or sign-up Curtis "Boo-Boo" Rouse to return punts and kick-offs, and still average 50 yards per.

Orton has been having a good year so if our offense doesn't get it together,this game could be over by half time EVEN if Hester doesn't get it going. Lets go Vikes!!!

If we learned anything from the Saints game, I'm confident that Longwell and Kluwe will be kicking to someone other than Hester.

The keys to this game are: 1. Scoring points against the very physical Bears defense. 2. Pressuring a very underrated Kyle Orton. 3. Playing in front of a hostile crowd against a very fired up team.

Hang on to your hats, it should be a thriller!

If the special teams cannot contain Hester and company, it will be another long day for the Vikes. They need to make the Bears go atleast 80 yards for the score. Give our defense some room to make the stop!!! The Bears are going to be extra fired up, since we won on a last second field goal the last time at soldier field. The passing game has to work. The Bears secondary is weak, so the Vikes have to execute the pass. Hopefully Berrian has a huge game against his old team...

I would suggest that the player consitrate on tackling Hester first then worry about stripping the ball.

And now, as if Reggie Bush wasn't a big enough headache, comes Devin Hester. Heads up, Vikings. You'll either improve your standings in the punt/ko return coverage, or get a lot worse. Skol, Vikings, let's win this game...

My worries are special teams and AD as he is a marked man now since he keeps dropping the rock...if there is one team that is gonna concentrate on stripping him it's Chi-town...oh and offense...they always worry me...I am good on Defense...have been all season...Orton is going to get rocked!

GO Vikes...Take the Division by Force Sunday!!!

I hope the stars and planets align next sunday and we contain Hester... so far, we couldn't even contain Ryan Leaf by the looks of things... so i'm HOPING this week special teams gets well. And our offense. And our coaching.... well, wait, that would require hell to freeze over, what am i thinking. Go Vikes, fire Klink.

Btw folkes....you know when it is classless to boo the home team? When there is not going to be any change made in that year...ahhh the only one to take over is the Defensive Coach...who is gonna run the offense Bevell? That would be a freakin disaster, if a defensive coach is gonna take over a team it's at the beginning of the season so he can bring in his OC...the players deserve more than that...they are playing for something in case you yahoos forgot...stop booing...it is a waste of time and just screws with the teams moral...let this team win the division (weak division) and lose in the first round and we will get our wish...till then stop trying to stop these players from a playoff push, do you not care for them?!...and that is all you will be doing!!! Klink will not be fired midstream.

Disgruntled Fans Rebuttle: Hey Vike...if we boo we will let the owner know our disgruntledness and he will surely fire him.

What??? The team is 3-3 and tied for the division lead...holds two tiebreakers against two contenders...has a 3-1 conf. mark...yep if there was ever good losses it's ones out of conference. The only way booing gets a coach fired if ever is when the team is winless, not the case here...so yes it is a waste of time and just pointless...oh wait that's the same thing...well you get my point.

Here are constructive ways to make your frustrations felt:

1. Stop going to the games.
2. Talk on the message boards.
3. Flood the airwaves.
4. Show fire klink signs so the players know it is not them they are booing.
5. Come up with some other ideas besides booing you freaks.

Yes we can win the division despite of Klink. I have seen plenty of plays that could have resorted in big yardage and touchdowns...players need to start executing...it's not like the whole game plan is dog excrement...wake up people!
