As always I hope the game starts with our opposition getting the ball. I think it is better to get the ball to start the 2nd half.
Hopefully Percy shows up big tonight along with AP. I am sure Chestor will be his usual reliable self.Kickoff:
Ok I've got the computer back.
Not a good start. What is that with Pat Williams out, not good.
That drive ending in a fumble was bad ju ju.
Bears field goal 6-0.
A touchdown solves this problem real quick. How about Percy Harvin for 94?End of 1st Quarter:
Defence squandered opportunity for a turnover and the offence and Special teams making mistakes. Yuck!
Nice Kick Kluwe, this is some ugly football the Vikes are showing. I don't so much have a problem with the run on 3rd down that didn't work, but we should have them pinned way deeper than this.
Bears in field goal range again. Leber missed his 2nd chance for a pick.
Officially this is BAD. Bears 13-0
3 and Out plenty thanks to the refs. Just what we need another factor against us.
3 and out for Bears
No urgency for the Vikes. Two minute warning. The Vikes really need to convert this 3rd Down.
Once again poor pass blocking and that play was doomed from the start. Bears get the ball back with enough time to drive for yet another score.
Well it's clear the Vikings original game plan to dominate the game by dominating the run game is shot to pieces. Bears with a huge advantage at this point. We are well on our way to three straight prime time embarrassments.
What is wrong with this team? Answer: Right now, just about everything.
Honestly, I don't know that we have any shot at winning the game at this point. No Pat Williams is just a killer with EJ Henderson gone and it is pretty clear to me that the Vikes expected to win this game with Adrian Peterson leading the way and that plan is probably out. Yuck!
Once again you can't pin down what is wrong to one thing, Peterson slips, Favre poor throw Peterson drops, Favre good throw, Berrien drops it. Punt.
Defence holds, Renaunt doesn't catch the ball (Come ON!) and we get lucky that Bear picks it up early or that might have gone 10 or more yards.
We need 7!!!
Oops 6, this isn't our game. (But it's still two scores to tie, so it isn't that big a deal)
OK it can't stop here. How about one of those patented Cutler meltdowns. (a boy can hope)
How did the refs miss that full extension block in the back at the point of the run, unbelievable!!!
That pass interference was crap, the replay clearly showed no holding going on.
Well, TSBR (Totally screwed by Refs) certainly applies on that drive for a Bears TD.
I'm done liveblogging until the end of the game!Bottom Line-
We lost the game. I don't feel that the Vikes in the end were really outplayed or even should have lost, but it is what it is thanks to Viking miscues and some poor Ref play.One Last Note:
The play of Antonie Winfield the past two weeks. Ouch! And where was Jared Allen, that boy has to step it up too.
Favre was clutch but a little bit lucky too, kind of like Cutler.
