Even with the warts the Vikings could have a win next week The Bears are only 2&3 the Bears dont look as good as many thought. Vikes could be 2&3 next week in a tie lol Go Vikings

That would be a trick since we're 1-4.

Secretly, down deep inside, I want the Vikings to play well, let our stars shine. However, looking at the big picture, and realizing we are going no-where, losing is not without it's own reward. 1. Brings us closer to ending the failed McNabb experiment. 2. Hope he takes Berrian and Safety Tyrell Johnson with him, there-by opening up roster spots for our future.

Losing will be the beginning of getting better. How can you not hope for that?

Actually all things considered...both teams are pretty even...

1) Both have great running backs

2) Both have loser QB's

3) Both have no WR's worth a damn

4) Vikes OL has been playing Better than the Bears OL

5) Vikes Defense is ranked better than the Bears

SAY...aren't you a shining ray of hope. Pretty good deciphering of both teams. You left out "the 12th man"...home field advantage. I think this game will go a long way in deciding just how quick both teams start thinking about rebuilding.

Cutler is worlds better than McBounce. Cutler gets absolutely destroyed every game behind that offensive line & still completes a lot of passes - somne to the wrong jersey color, of course. Anyway, Vikes are gonna lose to the Bears. Take it to the bank. Chicago has beat Atlanta & Carolina, lost to the saints & packers & detroit. No way we can beat atlanta at home, so why can we beat the bears on the road? Only hope is an insane pass rush & maybe cutler dying or something.

The Bears have allowed the third-most sacks in the league (18), and Cutler was taken down three times - and hurried countless others during a 24-13 loss in Detroit on Monday night.>>Minnesota is tied for second in the league with 16 sacks and its defensive linemen have collected all but one of those. The Vikings will try to use that pass rush to claim only their second win in 11 games in Chicago and first since 2007.rs - during a 24-13 loss in Detroit on Monday night

The Bears are tied for 21st with nine sacks, five of which came in a season-opening win over Atlanta. The Bears defense isnt that good as you see.

The Vikings are a team without flaws. We're headed for the Super Bowel.

Hey, Peppers has absolutely abused us the last 2-3 years. Without Pep, Vikes could win. Then I suspect Most fans will be attending the parade. I'll of course pass as we'd be 2-4 & still suck enough to miss the postseason.

I made a joke. That "whoosh" sound is it going over your head, lol. Vikes are 1-4, if they win, they are 2-4, not 2-3.

Vikings trouble is we are one of the oldest teams in the nfl and we are losing. We need to get rid of most players on the team get younger.
