Bears vs. Vikings

67 posts in this topic

When was the last time these two teams met with undefeated records and having some actual promise for a good season?

On my way back home to MN form a Purdue football game this weekend, I listened to about 10 hours of football on the radio, I caught a statistic about how this was only the second time in 15 years the Bears had started the season 2-0 (how sad is that!?!).

Things are looking up, I think I might like the Lovie Smith and Brad Childress Eras of football. Long gone are the days of Jauron and Tice.

As a MN transplant 5 years ago I usually cheer on the Vikes, but my childhood team of Da Bears will be the team of choice this weekend, sorry.

Should be a very good game this weekend. Da-Bears look like they are for real this year. The Purple defense will need to play a flawless game to pull out a win. The offensive line will need a better performance this week, or Brad may be leaving the game early in multiple pieces. It's only week three, but this game could become very important late in the season when the division race is on the line.

Week 3 prediction

Vikings: 23

Bear: 13

I'd be very optimistic thinking that the Vikings will score more than fieldgoals in this game.

2 pretty good defense's going against each other here so I do not see a high scoring game.

Hopefully the purple will adjust when needed unlike this past Sunday when Peppers was all over the place and the line didn't seem to make any changes.

One outstanding "D" (DA BEARS) One decent "D" (THE VIKINGS)

Let's get that correct first. Bring your "A" game Vikings, you'll need it Sunday.

You should be more worried about Grandpa statue you guys have playing QB for you the Rex making it out of the 3rd quarter. It will be a good game but we owe you from last year when we pulled our starters early and you ran up the yards & score on us. We haven't forgotten that and you'll see the real "D" this Sunday. Da Bears 21- Vikes 10

Vikings "D" is due for a few interceptions, and I think they're going to come against the Bears. Sharper and the squad will bring their "A" game.

Brad will throw a TD and CT is going to break through again for a TD, but it's going to be a pitch-out.

My prediction is that we're going to see a double-digit score by both teams... with the Vikes winning by a TD smile.gif

I'm a Vikes fan but I don't think they can take down the Bears. The Vikings could easily be 0-2 right now. Hopefully they can pull it off. They just haven't impressed me in the first two games.

Bears 17 Vikes 9

At home with the crowd noise and our strong 'D' it's going to be tough for Rex and company. It will be an ugly game like the last two weeks. We'll edge out Da Bears by a field goal and Longwell will be our MVP. Prediction: Vikings 23, Bears 20

I understand Rex is about to tie a personal best of 3 consecutive starts without a call to 911 for a ambulance ride but lets not start talking like he is some kind of iron man. Bye the way, Grandpa Johnson has not even been listed on a injury report since 2003, which would include about 37 games he played in.

The first 2 weeks we won 19-16 and 16-13 so I say the queens will win 13-10.

DA Bears! 23 to 10 over DA Queens!

I think the Bears defense is going to get a whole lotta their ugly all over Grandpa Johnson! Prediction...4 sacks and a knock out. But can Rex "go the distance"? If you build it, they will come.

BEAR DOWN...CHICAGO BEARS! Windy

My view of the game is:

Who has Chicago really played up to now,neither team has been a Division contender and who has the Vikings played, the skins at home on Fed-ex field and against Gibbs and Carolina who has been a pre-season pick to take it all the way.

Two great front lines in the Vikings left side of there offense and Chicago's front on defense. If Childress and Johnson can control the running game it will be another Viking win.

Will be a close and hard fought game to the end.

Vikings by the 4 and under.

You forgot to include the part where both Washington and Carolina were playing with their top offensive players either out or playing at considerably less than full strength as was the case with Smith and Portis. Carolina's offensive line is in shambles and the Redskins will prove to be a dissapointment this year. Chicago will complete the separation between them and the rest of the NFC North this weekend.

Either way, I'll be there with about four Bloody Mary's in my bloodstream to hopefully enjoy it. My prediction is 16-13 PURPLE!

good points, another one is the Vikes opponents are a combined 0-4 so the Vikes havent proved anything to me yet. This weekend will be the true test..

I dont know. Chicago is a pretty tough team this year. The Vikes D can definetly handle the bears offense. I think if Childress keeps giving Chester the Molester 25 carries per game, the Vikes can win.

Hopefully they have been working on audibles this week. Last week at the game I dont know how many times I saw #36 sneaking in to blitz, leaving Williamson single covered. Why not change the play at the line and go for the deep ball when they show the safety's blitzing? all it would take is a tap on the hip or something to let Williamson know to run a fly. Red can mean pass so the line pass blocks.

Either way keep stuffing the ball down their throats with Taylor and the occasional pass to Wiggins just because he's funny to watch run.

With the way our o-line blocked last week, it may be difficult to beat the Bears. Very poor blocking schemes last week...not doubling Peppers? You kidding me? And one play they had the running back try and block him. What's up with that?

Gotta improve the pass protection. If they can do that, I believe the Vikes will win. And, I think with Childress at the helm, they will make changes and improvements.

VIKES! 13-10.

Okay, first off the Bears front four is NOT as good as the Panthers! The Bears LB's are better than the Panthers and the Bears secondary is better than the Panthers IMO. I just don't see the Bears getting as much pressure on Johnson as the Panthers did and we beat the Panthers... and the Panthers offense is better than the Bears and we shut them down (albeit w/o Steve Smith). I look for the typical Grossman play... forcing something and turning the ball over or getting sacked and having it finish off his year... again! The Vikes are still the underdog and will continue to be until they can prove to the dopes in Vegas that they are a force to be reckoned with... which remains to be seen. I'm not saying were all that just yet, but admit the fact that we are playing very good defense and our offense seems to be able to move the ball well enough, and especially well when the game is on the line and the clock is ticking down. ie... The end of the Redskins game and on the OT drive against Carolina. Our injuries going into the game against the Bears this weekend makes me a little nervous. (Williamson & Robinson)

Being an already-out-of-the-race GB fan, I don't know what to do. With Daunte it was easy-root against him. But with him gone, I might just have to root for the Vikes --- I would really like to see what Windy has to say if the Bears lose. But the Bears offense looks pretty unshakable so far and the Vikes will need to put alot of pressure on the ol' FLA boy Rex.

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).  
    • Sushilicious
      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.
    • Rachelkate21
      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!
    • redlabguy
      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!
