The Bears get an all Pro QB and the Vikes have back up QBS Just blame Brad its time to get rid of him. All the Vikes need is a real QB for a Superbowl run but our HC sits on his u know what. Mr. Peabody has to go a Viking fan for over 40 yrs,

Dumb (Wilf) and Dumbest (Childress): Want a stadium? Want to win? Have a quality QB. This franchise is haunted by idiotic coaches who think they can "make" a QB instead of the QB helping to make the team. We had Denny's "grand slam" of rotating QBs and look how many super bowls we won. Now we have Chilly who thinks he's a QB guru, but rotates them in and out of the lineup so quickly that it seems random at best. The only team more stupid than the Vikings are the Broncos for letting a young franchise QB go. Way to go, Dumb and Dumber!

The bears gave up way tooooo much! 4 picks and a qb (Orton not really a player but) but 2 1st round picks, they have no WRs and no real offense they picked up Pace which stinks for us but he is no long term solution and there o line is weak as well. But they have a franchise qb is which is more than we can say. The only good that can come from this is the Bears win the North we don't make the playoff and they fire Childress!!!

This is too funny. Wow, this is kinda like the games we play against the Bears. The Vikings fumble their missing link to a superbowl run and the Bears are there to recover. I hope Cutler works out and Chili gets canned. Wilf passed on tons of publicity and probably a new stadium if Cutler proved the missing link. I think this is like breaking a mirror... 7 years bad luck!

Not sure I agree with your assessment of Orton. Sure he is no Montana, but look what he had to work with. No receivers and No protection. Still, he had a good TD to INT ratio. He does not make stupid decisions with the football. Also, I think he had the 'players' respect. Judging by what Urlacher said, the players would have rather kept Orton. We shall see...

The price was NOT too steep, it was a steal.

Chicago got a Top 10 QB with 10 good years left for the price of two 1st round gambles.

Troy Williamson anyone?, Aliki Smith anyone?
I thought not.

People have to quit dreaming about the difference between 1st round pick "potential" and proven play at the most important position in the game.

Not bidding on Cutler was unforgivable, letting him go to your toughest rival in the division was unimaginable.

We will live to regret this stupid decision.

Cutler is who we thought he was...a prima donna, spoiled, can't win the big game, didn't make the playoffs with losing the last three games, overpaid, overrated, disruptive, 17-20 overall record QB...

The Bears didn't get the best of this deal, and time will play it out.

For those who think that Cutler is the next Joe Montana because he was 13-1 in games the Bronco's held the opponent to under 21 points....the Vikings were 8-2 last year under the same guideline and won two games when the defense gave up more points....just means if you hold the to 21 or under, you will probably win the game.

Only time will tell but I believe JC has the ability to make receivers look better than what they are just like Favre did. What do the bears have? a top 15-20 defense, a 2nd year RB who just wore down towards the end of last year and receivers who have some upside. What part of our defense sucked last year? against the passing attacks. We lost a few games last year because we couldn't defend the pass.

The broncos had the exact opposite problems we had on offense last year, teams ignored the run and played nickel and dime defenses the who year against them. JC ended up having 4500 yards against teams that knew he was going to pass, hmmm kind of sounds like rb talent we had when teams stacked the box against him and he still ran for the best yardage in the league.

This post pretty much sums up not only this particular nondeal but the Childress hiring as well, which is shaping up to be an even dumber decision.

I yearn for the days of Bud Grant and Fran Tarkenton. How great was it to have a head coach you could trust and had faith in? How great was it to have a HOF QB who was a winner and a true leader of the team? Fans used to be united in their support for the Vikings in a way that's simply impossible now... sad.

The real mistake we made was we could have offered New England A first round for Cassel, and turned arround and traded him to Denver for an even swap. A quaterback like Cutler would make all day twuice as good no moor 8 man fronts. But shouda wouda couda, no use crying over what is done. This could be childress undooing. Now we need to consintrate on going uot and having the best draft we can. We all know we are so close to being a super bowl team. No matter what I will always be a diehard vikings fan!!

Way to go childress another bone-head move on your part--letting a quailty QB get by the organizatin-again.. What's the matter Cutler was to good and might prove what a dumb-as.. coach you really are. Zig--childress is a loser just ask any head coach out there..he belongs in Philly,so send him back..know with the draft coming up -lets just let childress make the pick (after all he doesn't know one quality player from another) and will end up with anothe t-jack..trade childress for draft pick-I know we'll only get a 7th or 8th but anything is better then childress..

stupid decisions is all childress can make..why doesn't Zig see that-all of the sporting announcers are making remarks about the Minnesota Vikings and not good ones, yet childress still has a job..can't understand that..
