Bears. Although this is the last one in that stadium, and our run defense is terrible. The Pack losing on Thanksgiving has made it so that less focus is on them, and more focus on the Lions, who hold the tie-breaker over us. We need this game badly. I’ll say it again, WE NEED this game. Trestman is not my best friend lately. I will consider allowing him back in the circle of trust if he guides the Bears to a win here. I like aggressive play calling, but don’t be an idiot.

Bears 31 – Vikings 17

@BearsSTH (4-5)

Bears will win. They have to. They won’t lose to the Vikings because they suck. They suck worse than the Bears defense suck. There’s nothing really to analyze or breakdown here. You stop Adrian Peterson, you stop the Vikings from looking like an NFL team and more like the Minnesota Gophers practice squad. Score more points than the other team, then you’re good. The Bears will score more points than the Vikings.

Bears 35 – Vikings 20

Coach Boss (6-5)

Wow. That sucked. I am not sure what to think about this team any more. I see the offense moving in the right direction but I am starting to see mental mistakes more frequently. I don’t really know if anyone on the defense knows how to not get blocked by one guy and/or tackle the guy with the ball before he gets 10 yards down field. Oy. Adrian Peterson should be absolutely licking his chops after watching film. I don’t want to say it but I don’t see the Bears winning in Minnesota.

Bears 24 – Vikings 27

The Bears defense stinks in a way I have never smelled…WOW!  The Vikes are a bad team though and the Bears offense is good…actually, really good!  The Bears will likely not contain Adrian Peterson, but the running game is a slow way to score points.  My guess is the Bears will hold the Vikings to some key field goals instead of giving up touchdowns and the Bears roll on towards Jay Cutler’s return.

Bears 31  - Vikings 30

What do YOU think?  Everyone thinks these predictions are so easy to make.  Put yourself on record each week and see how you stack up with the team!

    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???

      • ManGod

        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.

        • Wayne Davis

          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

          Well… You got one outa all your predictions right 350yds passing …. That’s IT! Though lol….
