Vikes-Bears Thread

Recommended Posts

Down to Earth

Looks like you guys will be facing Kyle Orton come next Monday. Not that it will matter anyways. I see the Vikes pounding away at the Bears for a convincing win. Hopefully my Packers can go into St. Louis and take care of business there as well.

Wow,

Witty retort, Strato, I thought that was the saying people were using for the Pack. You had better rack your brain and come up with something original.

Some just don't get it. The Pack sucks and the Bears blow. There is a difference. grin.gif

Honestly, there is a very good reason the Bears are 9 point dogs but they still have a couple of healthy playmakers on defense, a receiver who can blow past a flat footed corner and Hester who can change a game faster than anyone.

The Vikes should win but it would not shock me to see the Bears put up a struggle if they still have some fight left in them after a very difficult year. The Vikes were left for dead a few weeks ago and awoke suddenly. There is no reason the Bears might not do the same just to make a statement that they have some pride.

Was not a retort merely an observation. Here's another: Bears are execrable.

Windy,

I should clarify as my bold prediction has nothing to do with the first Packer-Bears game. It has more to do with earlier in the season the Vikings went into Soldiers field put up 300+ yards rushing and beat the Bears 34-31 in a game the pretty much controlled the whole time. Only some Brian Griese late game heroics made it that close. Right now the Vikings have won 4 straight games and are playing outstanding football right now. The running game is clicking the defense is solid and the QB play is coming around nicely. Meanwhile the Bears D is no longer feared, they lost their starting RB(granted it was only Benson), and they are down to their #3 QB. I know Orton has a good win loss record, but you and I both know that record had more to do with the Bears D than Kyle Orton. Unless Orton pulls a Chad Hutchinson out from under his helmet, its going to be a long night for the Bears.

As for that Packers game, it is unfortunate that that was one of the Packers worse games from a turnover standpoint. We moved the ball for the most part at will and if it weren't for the 5 turnovers we would have won that game. I predict come our visit to Soldiers field we'll have a result closer to our last visit to Soldiers Field rather than the one earlier this season. If your confident enough, I'll make an avatar bet with you. Pack win you front an avatar of my choice for 1 week. Bears win I'll front your avatar pick.

Deal?

Strato,

Since you "re"plied to me, it would be closer to a "re"tort than an observation. In "re"ply to your "observation" that the Bears "suck", I would ask you, when was the last time the Queens "sucked" in the Super Bowl? The answer for the Bears would be, last year. Second question would be, when was the last year that the Queens won the Super Bowl. The answer for the Bears would be Super Bowl XX.

Think about it!!!

Playing in the superbowl (and being dismantled by the colts BTW) and being one of the worst teams in the NFL this year makes the bears SUCK even more.

Who is the most overrated player in the NFL????

I know I know!

Well thanks for the history lesson...history.

I will repay the favor with a lesson in current events.

Vikings 7-6 = mediocre and improving quickly

Bears 5-8 = sucking and sinking

It's time to live in the present, the past is history, and I don't believe in history.

And Sled,

When was the last time the Queens were "dismantled" in the Big Dance???

Now we are talking ancient history! LOL

At least we got there and at least we won the thing, Queens can not say that. The last time the Queens were at the Dance they were wearing bell bottoms.

I love this smack talk amongst our division. The Vikes should manhandle the bears, but the bears may not want to loose twice in the same season to a poor Vikings team, as Windy would put it. But if the Bears did loose to the Vikes 2 times in one season, then we would know that the bears do really blow! grin.gif Just think, the bears lossed to the Vikings, when the Vikings couldnt score against 11 old ladies on a team. smirk.gif And the recievers couldnt catch a cold! Now we are playing all around football.

With that being said, this is the Vikings, and I have seen them mess up and loose to worse teams then this bears team, when they were suppose to win. Go Vikes!!!

I agree. I haven't felt this good with the Vikings in a really long time. With an improved offense and a much better defense, I am thinking SuperBowl baby!

Anyone with me?

WOW!, I always thought it was "backed into a corner Packer fans" who brought out the Super Bowl Trump card. Sounds like Bears fans use as well. laugh.gif

Yes, I think we've already established that the Bears won the game because they scored more points. But sometimes the score doesn't always reflect what really happened in the game. In this game turnovers played a huge role. Jones had two fumbles in which the Packers were driving in Bears territory and Favre had an interception that gave the Bears a short field. Did you forget the Packers put up 430+ yards on the Bears defense? I don't think the turnovers will be there this game and without them the Bears will not win. Take also into account what has progressed since that first game. The Packers like last years game are playing good football and will have something to play for. The Bears on the other hand, despite it being a different scenerio will have nothing to play for.

By the way, you never did give me a response to my avatar bet.

Until the Queens take home the hardware both Pack fans and Bears fans can and should use the Super Bowl trump card as often as possible! LOL

And DTE I did respond to your Avatar challenge, I said, "Points?"

Surely a high caliber team like the Packers (who are playoff bound with their potent offense and stingy defense) would love nothing more than to blow out the lowly Bears (who are in dissary with their injury riddled defense and a 3rd string QB) by at least 21 points so if you are feeling strong you should not mind spotting me 3 touchdowns? Bet?

Strato,

Using your theory, wouldn't the Queens and Bears record so far this year also be history? Recent history, but history just the same. I know that Pack fans are considering the loss to the Bears earlier this year as history!

Just ax-ing?

My misunderstanding. I thought your points comment was referring back to the final score of the first game. If you need to hide behind a points spread I'll do it. I'll give you the Vegas opening spread, which typically comes out the Tuesday before the weeks game, which I believe is Dec. 18 for the Bears/Packers. I'll post it then.

I ain't gonna wait for no Vegas spread. Surely you have enough confidence in Brett and the boys to spot me 3 ???

      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch teelsnoften so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake. 
    • Wanderer
      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps 
    • MikeG3Boat
      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!
    • BriGuy88
      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!
