A Cold Night At Soldier Field

In addition to players playing a tad slower than normal because of a grass playing surface (see B. Grant’s comments) the game could have an old-time feel to it because of the weather in Chicago.

It is expected that temperatures could dip into single digits during the game tonight, and that winds could cause it to feel more like a negative temperature.

While the grass has never slowed down Adrian Peterson at Soldier Field before, the cold temperatures could make for a highly unpredictable game tonight.  Fumbles, errant throws, botched kicks, and ugly punts are just a few things that may be a result of the cold weather.

If there was ever a time to get the running game back on track, this is that game.

Remember, a live blog will be available for tonight’s game right here at Vikings Gab.  Don’t sweat if I’m a little later than normal getting it up and running.  I have some conflicts today, but it should be up and running by kickoff at the very latest.

    Thank you for your support Ole. You are right, Freds was dominant last nights.

    An interesting factoid for all you purple freaks:

    The Vikings have never lost a game when they have played in Chicago, when the temp was below 20 degrees, the wind blew above 19 miles an hour, it was Buds birthday, EJ Henderson was hurt, Brett Farve acted like a 12 year old the week before, Childo used the term “stream of conciseness”, Mrs. Warwas got her choppers repaired and Mrs Freds promised to be asleep before the end of the game this evening leaving Freds high and dry.

    All promising signs for a win.

    Your old pal will have the sound turned down, watching the game in silence… as usual.

    Not related to anything, but Don McNabb moved up to number one on the people Freds would to have Johnny kick the crap out of. He actually pushed Al Franklin down to number two.

    By the way, Favre is number four on the list right behind President “Apology”.

      Freds I would be more than happy to oblige on three of the four. Cant do that to Favre till after the season. Still have no confidence in Tjack.

    so this is where my old pal,freds, coach, cc and a few others are hangin’ out…….thanks for the tip, Ole…….you come highly recommended, Adam……..I’ll be checking in and following all the action for the remainder of the season, right up to the nfc champ game, when we line up for a 38 yarder to clinch it……then I shall avert my eyes, and hope jeja vu doesn’t happen all over again!

    GO VIKES!!!!!

    Not sure why everyone thinks it’s cold at Chitown. Mid 20’w isn’t so bad. Remember we are Vikings!!!! Time to kick some butt!!

  5. olderthandirt says:

    Welcome krug!! Good to see you at the Gab. Adam is a great host and has a lot of good thoughts about the Vikes. He’s a little tough on my man Brett, but he’s been coming around. We wouldn’t be in this position without him.

    Did you guys see the story in the Strib about how Jarred Allen tried to get Chili and Brett to hug??

  7. krugjr says:

    thanks, dirt……gonna be a little hard to say but…..go cowboys….oh, that was hard to type….but since the broncos couldn’t do it, perhaps the cowboys will…..1st round bye would be nice, then Chilly can save all those trick plays for when it really counts!

    GO VIKES!!!!!

  8. olderthandirt says:

    Hey there skillet!! Glazer made a big deal about the “hugging” on ESPN yesterday. He made it sound like Farve wasn’t “up” for it.
