I still look at that game as the one that cost us the Super Bowl. Had we beaten you guys then, we would have gotten home field advantage against New Orleans in the NFCCG. We more than likely would have beaten them in our place, and I think either NFC team would have beaten the Colts that year.

As far as this year goes, I'm really looking forward to seeing how the Bears look. I've been high on them for the last few years and have ended up disappointed. It will be interesting to see if the improvements under Trestman's offense will make up for the loss of Lovie's defensive genius. Either way, I think the Bears will take this one. I just hope that whatever happens, both teams come out of the game free of any major injuries.

One matchup to watch will be how Peppers does against Kalil. From what I heard, Peppers looked pretty slow and old in last week's game. The thing is, Kalil didn't look too sharp in the Week One game either, so we will have to see if both of these guys can put it all together again in Week Two.

This game is simple. The Vikings will go after Cutler, Marshall and Forte. The Bears must defend them and go after Ponder. Shut down the short passing game. Get Bostic involved. Cool

Didn't realise we are wearing our throwbacks for this game. Awesome. I love them.

Leslie Frazier has said he's been pressing JWebb all week for info and will continue to do so, I'm hoping Webb is as gormless as he looks and isn't able to give too much away. I'm a bit more confident going in to this week than last, don't see the Vikings defense posing as much as a problem as the Bengals and I'm just generally more confident in our team after getting the win week 1. Hoping to see some improvement on our defense though, our third down D was extremely frustrating last week and Tucker has a task on his hands to stop AP. I'm hopeful we can go 2-0 though, Bears 27-20.

The Vikings’ recent futility in Chicago is not lost on Minnesota Pro Bowl defensive end Jared Allen.

“Goodness, we haven’t won since 2007, I think,” Allen said. “It’s got to change to be honest. It’s embarrassing. It’s annoying. We can take the same team and bring them back to the dome and be successful against them.

That guy is hilarious. Did you hear him talking about his touchdown catch post game?
He said something to the effect of 'well, yeah, I had to channel my inner Brandon Marshall on that one'


He's one of a kind. Did you hear his reason for why he calls himself a black unicorn. It's something to the effect of, "I was at practice one day and I was running down the field and while I was running I just thought to myself 'I just feel like a unicorn right now, a black one'". I would love to be able to hear his thoughts for like 5 minutes.

We really cannot afford to lose at home to a 1 dimensional team with poor QB play.

I think it may be a game like the Bengals game were it is a close grind, but I think Cutler out duels Ponder when it counts.

Nothing about the MIN passing game should scare the Bears. If they can force a few stops early, get out to a 10 or 14 point lead and largely neutralize AP I can see this thing getting ugly.

Patterson doesn't scare me, per se, but he does have big play capability and that's something you gotta account for. I remember wanting us to draft him this year (not necessarily my top choice, but I wouldn't have hated him to be the guy at 19). Then there's Greg Jennings, he's had some damn good games against us over the past few years with the Pack, but a lot has changed since then. He didn't look good (judging by his stat sheet, and that alone) against the Lions, his QB isn't even a fraction of what Rodgers is, but he is still Greg Jennings.

Their passing game isn't anything to be afraid of, but the talent is there and we can't overlook that. Especially considering our defense wasn't exactly stellar last week.

Patterson has big play ability on special teams. I don't think he'll be a major threat tomorrow or whenever Sunday happens this week.

Da Bears defense was boss hog vs. the run in the home opener. They should pick up from last week and make that a priority again week 2.I like Da Bears defense vs Peterson based on what they show us last week. Ball security pass protection and opening wholes in the ground game are also major.

I read somewhere that Patterson only played 5 snaps on offense last week, even though they were behind much of the second half. That's madness to me.

The lead is going to be important.

If we force Ponder to have to score quickly we are in good shape. A quick start from our offense would be great.

I'm really not too high on our run D, even though the stats last week indicate we were successful.

I see AP having a really big game against us but I don't have a lot of faith in Ponder to make it a two dimensional offense.

Either way I see Cutler needing a big game without too many mistakes to win this one.
