The Chicago Bears are a good football team that can come on the verge of being great by the way lovie smith has been coaching the team. They easily have a chance of beating us and no way should we take this team for granted. What concerns me the most is their D line and if Atlanta got 9 sacks on Culp, Chicago definitely can with the talent they have.

Here are my suggestions to win the game
1. Run The ball with Bennet and Moore
2. Screens to Benett, More and Wiggins
3. Keep Kleinsasser in to block on 90 percent of the plays-he can take urlacher out of the game
4. Put Melvin Fowler in for Withrow- Withrow's crap
5. Get all of our wr's in the game and get Williamson and Koren Robinson to run vertical seams while Taylor Burleson and Robinson, the better possesion receivers can find holes in the cover 2 zone and get gains that way.
6. CULPEPPER MUST PROTECT THE BALL- Lovie has installed a great system on defense and what the Bears specialize at is group tackling and when one man holds the ball carrier while others try to strip it. Whoever has the ball, PROTECT it and if theres no chance for extra yardage, be safe and dont risk it.
7. Get Daunte In a sugar huddle or 2 minute offense alot
8. Blitz alot on Defense. Give Orton hell all game long. Get In Erasmus alot to keep the Bears O line honest.

And on Kickoff, make sure Azumah is contained on all runs. He is very dangerous.

Overall, I beleive that both teams have an equal chance of winning this game.

I beleive a final score of Vikings 20 Bears 13

9. Score early and get the lead. Force the Bears to depend on Orton's arm.
10. Force turnovers.
11. Practice all week for noise, maybe a silent count. Have to stop those drive-killing penalties.
12. Repeat #8

Urlacher isn't what he used to be, but I still think it would be pretty hard to take him totally out of the game. He's still gonna get his tackles. You could definately minimize any big plays from him tho.

Yeah, the Bears are a good QB away from being a scary team. I'm not into the game yer either. Where are they playing? Home or Soldier Field? If it's the later of the two, it could be a long day.

What ever happened to thomas jones??? havent heard a peep about him or any other bears rb since the season started. All i heard is how terrible orton can be and how decent the defense is playing, which doesnt bold too well for us. :???:

Could be a good close game if both teams play as bad as they did against the Bengals (their only common opponent thusfar). Just think, we threw 5 interceptions against the Bengals and so did the Bears.

Seriously, though, this game will be decided in the trenches. Da Bears will play 8 in the box. If we can somehow get 150+ yards rushing with Bennett and Moore, we should prevail.

Jones? He is doing pretty good. 2 straight 100+ yard games.

I was listening to sports radio the other day and they said that of the four teams in the NFC North if you take their three specialized teams (offense, defense, special teams) that the best unit is the Bears defense. I would have to agree with that and that is what we will have to worry about for our game against the bears.

the bear defense is pain. they play so hard. this will not be an easy game no matter what you might think. we have to score first and force them to pass.

He single handily beat us one game last year.

He was hurt, he comes back for our game, and then is hurt the rest of the year.

He was all over the field, like a man possessed. He had tackles up the butt, an interception and sacks.

When did we win our last road game? I can't remember. If we were at home I think we win. On the road who knows.

Was that an attempt to make everyone happy? The answer is Lambeau, beating the Pack in the playoffs! Thank you, I needed that.

We tend to have trouble beating the Bears in Chicago. They are not going to score a lot of points on us, unless we turn the ball over too much. Protect the ball and we beat the Bears in a low scoring game.

Yeah right. The Bears own the Vikings at Soldier Field. They've beaten us how many years in a row up there? Vikings at Bears is typically one of the most depressing games for me to watch. In past years, we WERE the better team almost every year, but they would beat us down, slow the game down, and rough us up. They would make the game about toughness and grit, not about talent and speed. The Vikings will not blow out the Bears and the Vikings do not win close games. Do the math. I predict a very boring, hard nosed, close game. Then, mid fourth quarter, Daunte will fumble or throw an interception that will lead to a Bear lead and eventual victory.

I absolutely hate those games where the other team eats up the game clock by brusing up our players and extending their drives because we can't stop them on third and short, medium, or long. Then our offense never gets on the field and we lose it at the end. It is such a hopeless feeling. That's what always happens against the Bears, and there's no reason to believe it won't happen again. And what's worse, it's very tough at this point in time to call the Vikings a BETTER team.

If the Vikings win, it will be because of a clutch play at the end.

Good assessment...but we also must stop the run, something we haven't done yet. The Bears can run...and if they don't have to rely on a passing game, we're in for a long day.

How many turnovers will Culpepper have?

This is the key. If Culpepper turns the ball over more than Orton....he should be benched.

I think Todd Bauman is a free agent at the end of the year.......wanna bet Miami picks him up?

Heh heh heh Maybe I should have said regular season game. :smile: I think for us to win in Chicago we have to score first and early in the game. It will be interesting to see if the bye week produces any results in terms of game prep and attitude. We usually get beat up in Chicago the last few years. Our guys better come out swinging or its going to be a long day.

I think to win any game we need to score early and often. I think that the way we have played in Chicago, it will kill us if we get down early. D.C. has never been a good quarterback when trailing and he is definitely getting antsy when down early this season, only making things worse.
I do think we win this game after ther bye, but I will make a much better evaluation following this week's Bears game.

I remember that. He had missed like three games before that, came back, got like 45 tackles and 18 sacks, and then was out the rest of the damn year. I was just talking to my brother about how he is overatted unless he is playing the Vikes. Glad I was not the only one who noticed this last year.

im surprised noone has touched on this option...

lets take a page out of the patriots book...last year early in the season (i forget the opponent) all the pregame analysts were saying how the pats were gonna give the other team a healthy dose of the running game...on their first possesion they came out 5 wide and used the no huddle offense to perfection and marched straight down the field for a TD...

i think this could help us alot because most teams script thier first 15-25 plays to feel out what the D is gonna do in certain formations...and i know our O-line is having trouble but if we keep pulling in more and more blockers the other teams D is just gonna keep jamming our 2 WRs and playing in that 10 yard box that has been a reacurring theme this year...and tell me...how has that worked out for us so far...

another good thing with the 5 WR formation right off the bat...you know darn well the bears are gonna game plan the screens and alll the shorter passing routes weve been doin all year long...i doubt they will game plan for 5 WR and a no huddle offense on our first possesion, and this game plan would catch ol' lovie and crew off guard big time...

i would just like to see a lil change up with the offense instead of us turning into the bears offense of 2 years ago under john schoop (spelling)
where they wouldnt throw the ball more then 7 yards at a time...

peace....

I agree with SWAZ, we gotta shake things up and score early, stop the run, and no turnovers.... beating bears in Chi-town isn't going to be the easiest, but if we keep ortin from looking like montana, and stop the run, this could be a road Division Victory we need desperatly.

to (think that we'll) win is to believe in the coaching staff and Culp... both of which i do not hold in high regard right now.--however, i am not playing. chicago lives for their home game against us and lovie smith is a better coach. we are in for a rough one and the only thing that will let us win is the fact that Orton will likely make a bunch of mistakes and hopefully our beat up defense will capitalize on it.

We need to get the first points then I think we will be alright.. But if we fall behind early.. Even 7-0 I don't like our chances.. We seem to lose it after they score first.. And we suck at Soldier field.. I think we have to stack people at the line and STOP THAT RUN! Make Orton try to win the game.. Our 3 corners can stop thier pathetic WR's (besides Moose) 1 on 1.. I think Winny can pretty much shut him down though so if we make Orton pass we should take this one

I agree with most of what you are saying, I have had enough of the conservative offense we have been using!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spread the field, make them react to us not the other way around. We did that in the first game against Tampa, we tried to play smash mouth football and we got smacked in the mouth.

I do not know about going to a 5 WR set, but do go to a 4 WR often! Go to a 3 WR set with 1 TE and no more 3 TE sets with 1WR. How easy to defend!

We do not have the line to push teams around right now so why are we trying. Make them respect the pass and put in some timing routes to beat the blitz (you know it's coming). Make them regret doing it and make them get to the point were they are only sending the 4 down lineman.

Play to win and don't play to lose!


The same thing on the defense side of the ball!

Be aggressive and blitz 2 guys on every down, no more soft f*cking zones. Play man to man and let our corners play on the line, bump the hell out of the receivers and make them hear foot-steps. Be aggressive, I would rather lose that way than play like pussies and still get beat!!
