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.

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On! 
    • monstermoose78
      Well monstermoose78 is done ice fishing around here for the year. Why you ask I fell through yes there was 28-30 inches of ice on the lake, but the shoreline nope. Went fishing with @Cret Jigs and we had fun fishing. I cut lots of holes and we got some good ones for the knife. Cret jigs brought a plank for the way out but on the way in I did not make it to the plank. Cret jigs helped me get my stuff the shore and out. I worry about the guy on the wheeler and they guy who used the plank to get out too. Thanks Cret jigs for a fun day. 
    • redlabguy
      To all you guys who’ve been keeping us posted, thank you. I’m an islander so I don’t have much hope for the opener, but I’ve been reading all the posts (read them year around), including entertaining posts on new gear, and, again, thanks for letting a lot of guys know what’s going on there. The current weather, forecast and web cams, give me hope! I’m thinking I may get back home in three weeks, maybe four. Keep the sun shining, Dick

      What a difference a day makes, yesterday the dam was locked up tight and today it's roaring. Walleye should be running this week...
    • IceHawk
      Well this morning was officially the end of the ice season for me.   Its been a lot of days on the ice this winter and I have to admit I'm  a little burnt out.   It wasn't easy but it was time to end it.  Have to admit It was a sad moment putting the gear away but it was time as needed space today to put the boat in the garage   Learned a lot of new water and reacquainted myself with some old standbys. Fished 10 different counties this winter so definitely fished a lot of different areas.  Fished many species on the ice this winter so there never was a dull moment. Didn't take a ton of pics just a few need to take more just have never been a pic type of guy LOL.   Iced 7 walleyes between 26-28 3/4 all on local lakes.  So just a tip if you dedicate some time locally big eyes can be found. Fished panfish everywhere in the state highlight area for big fish being Becker and Ottertail Douglas counties. Biggest gill this winter was 10 3/4    many 10's came topside but couldn't break 11 this winter. Craps 15 inchers were tops. Good fish but had goals set at a 16.  Some things learned this ice season where number one lure for the eyes was a old school hammered silver Swedish pimple. It far out produced anything else.   Kenders tungsten where my mainstay for gills and crappies. The plastics of choice were power bait wishbones,  chigger frys, and Northland impulse mayfly's.  The catfish were a hoot and a  change of pace did well on Maynards slammers Glow red. The equipment and gear I was running and never failed me all season were Thorne Bros Rods- For eyes Perch sweethearts. For the Panfish I was running  Power Noodles, panfish sweethearts,  and my favorite the Tripwire. Reels Pflueger Presidents, Prestige ,and Supremes.. Did use some inlines also from 13 fishing The free falls where worth every penny. Ran a K-Drill 8 inch early and late and During the thick ice Ran my strikemaste Lazer.  Vexilar Electronics the old trusty FL18 my eyes underwater, Please Don't  think that I'm pushing these products because I'm sponsored by them, I'm Not. Just want to give a thumbs up and honest opinion on  some top notch equipment that has worked and weathered the storm of a good hardwater season. Realize we all work hard for our dollars and I can honestly say these products where worth every penny and never let me down!  Well Off to the Garage to start getting the boat ready for the Next season  By the Way big Shout out to some of the best Anglers I had the chance to share the ice with this season from FM.  Thanks  Borch,  Bass Thumb,  Moose,  Eyeguy, Rick G , Tom Sawyer for shareing some ice time with me.  Hopefully I get to meet and fish with a few other FMer's this summer or next hardwater.  We had some great Times great laughs and managed to even ice a few fish   Looking forward to having a few summer outings in the future.  BYE BYE Ice Hello open water

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!
