DeCon (6-5)

My record continues to match the Beloved…sadly.  Witnessing that debacle in person last Sunday in St. Louis really put a damper into what was a great weekend, but I think this team has enough heart to rebound.  My advice to Mel Tucker would be to put 9 in the box and keep Wright and Conte close to the line to stop AP.  Less of a chance for either to take a bad angle and no chance for a PI call on Conte.  And never, EVER line up Conte in a 1 on 1 situation on the goal line.  Boomer has a better chance to defend against a fade route than Conte.  I think the Bears offense will put up some points in the Dome and the Vikings won’t have enough AP runs to offset it.

Bears 31 – Vikings 17

Boomer (6-5)

Well that was a bummer!  The Bears got run over – literally and figuratively – by the Rams in St Louis.  It was unexpected to say the least.  We know what to expect from the Vikings, on the other hand.  They will send Adrian Peterson right, they’ll send him left, they’ll send him right up the gut.  The Bears defense will bounce back and Josh McCown will pick on the Vikings’ weak pass defense.

Bears 27 – Vikings 22

Tooch (5-5)

Adrian Peterson has averaged 107.7 rushing yards per game in 11 career games against the Bears, including the monster 224-yard performance he turned in his rookie year.  Peterson won’t match that rookie performance, but he’ll rack up at least 120 yards and two touchdowns against a pathetic Bears defense and subsequently put an end to Chicago’s playoff hopes for this season.

    Chicago by 17. I do not see AP getting to rush freely in this game. And yardage for him will be much more difficult to come by with Ratliff and McClellan healthy and playing. When you those two to the D line you automatically make things easier in the run game for the rookie linebackers and that spells trouble for the Minnesota offense as a whole, not just the run game. AP maybe scores 2 TD’s….and maybe the Vikings can squeeze another TD out somewhere….but more likely they will end with 2 TDs and 2-3 FGs…..McGowan will bounce back on offense along with Martellis , Ashlon and Brandon….and when you add in the running game of Forte who I see rushing for at least 80 yds and receiving yardage in the 35-55 yds …..I smell a blowout in this matchup….Bears 41 Yikes 24

      All those players PLUS!.. Cutler avail week 2 at home and you all couldn’t blow us out!!… How u figure in our house that’s going to happen???

        Easy….stop AP with Ratliff and McClellan clogging the running lanes and force him into the Linebacker gaps filled with Anderson, Greene and Bostic all of whom will be on the field. As Ap goes, so do the Vikings…and if you think you have QB to play….who did you just steal him from Minneapolis High School????? First off neither McClellan, Ratliff, Greene or Bostic were in that game…..sorry for your history lesson. Also the weak link in the secondary Major Wright will not be playing…..which bodes well for the Bears…Bowman or Steltz can tackle and are just as decent defending the pass as Wright has been. McGowan will look like a superstar against your non-existent pass defense and rush this year….look for him to throw 3-5 TDs and go over 350 yds against your secondary.

          Your delusional !!.. Lmao!!.. Second who the hell is McGowan you seem to know a little something about football and i guess your team .. Hopefully that’s a nick name McGowan none of the other proven QBs have thrown 5td I doubt your career back up will?.. Ijs .. Because I’m not delusional about my team we have a good chance of winning this game at home

        • Wayne Davis
