Vikings Beat Up by The Bears in Chicago 28-10

The bad news for the Vikings began when they arrived in the Windy City on Saturday, as they learned the Bears would have the services of starting QB Jay Cutler after all. The way they played on both sides of the ball Sunday, the Bears might as well have had Jim McMahon starting at QB. […]

Divisional Foes Have Their Struggles

The Vikings limped into their early bye week with plenty of concerns surrounding their offense and their injury report. A week after the Bears and Packers faced off in an ugly display, things appear to have gotten even worse for the leaders of the NFC North. The Packers had the luxury of hosting the Lions […]

Previewing The Bears

The preview is coming a little early this week, as I do not plan on having too many updates until Sunday morning. The 9-1 Vikings are preparing to host the 4-6 Bears this Sunday, in a game that will have great importance to the Vikings as a team, and also great importance to the careers […]

Vikings Maintain Edgy Attitude

Last week we told you about Jared Allen’s amusement with Matthew Stafford being considered anything other than an over-paid rookie that hasn’t proven anything. This week, it is Bobby Wade that is stirring the NFC North pot by saying that Brian Urlacher recently told him that Jay Cutler is a “pussy.”  Wade says Urlacher made […]
