Playing At Soldier Field Is Sweet For Peterson

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 11, 2010 – 4:02 pm

We’ve already chronicled the success Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has had playing against the Bears and specifically playing at Soldier Field. On Thursday while speaking with reporters, Peterson explained why it is he enjoys playing in Chicago so much.

“I love playing every team, but I love playing at Soldier Field,” Peterson explained. “I don’t know what it is, probably cause Sweetness [Walter Payton] played there and just the tradition of the stadium. I look forward to carrying the load if they call my number.”

When asked if he liked playing at Soldier Field more because of his success there than the history, Peterson reiterated his respect for the historical significance of the Chicago Bears and their home stadium.

“It’s because of Payton too, and just the history of Soldier Field,” he said. “You always hear about the Chicago Bears defense. When I was young, I always played with Chicago ’85 [in video games] because of the defense. That’s part of it too.”

    Peterson is second in the NFL in rushing and Chad Greenway is second in NFL in tackles. Longwell is 8 for 8 in field goals. The Vikings have some good thing that they can build on going into the second half of this season.

    Here we go, bears are about to be exposed for their true standing: Mediocre.
    Yes, remember game one at Soldier Field, the Lions won the game, unfortunately the receiver did not continue the “process” of hanging onto the ball in the end zone. Remember the way the Giants manhandled and ran all over the teddy bears, oops, I mean bears. Yes, the Bears are one of those so-so teams that think they are elite– oh yeah, they barely beat a winless Buffalo Bills team last week. OOOOH, the powerful bears! Not/

    Carl– you are right. The Wilfs did not amass a billion dollar empire covering 39 states because they do not know how to win. They possess a winning spirit and they know who they placed as coach of the team. Whomever on here has a billion dollar business, then maybe you can argue with personnel decisions.

    Would that not be awesome? 200 yards for AP? He had, I think 160 against Detroit. Chicago does have some playmakers on defense, I grant them that, but we have the best running back in the league— that is very, very positive.
    We will win this one, and then take the Packers down.

    The Naysayers will make fun of this (what can’t you make fun of?) but before I began reading this blog I admired Coach Childress for rebuilding the team Dennis Green, and Mike Tice were having a hard time with. The Vikings went 6-10, 8-8, 10-6, and 12-4. I don’t know where else in football history that type of climb took place. IT’S EASY TO LOSE THAT TRAIN OF THOUGHT, with all the negative nellys and naysayers bring up.

    FireChild: Man are you on the level? If that is true I can see why you are mad. Perhaps a coaching change could bring a quick turn around. It has happened before. My sympathies are with the coach, because I was one for a long time. The political stuff involved in coaching is UNREAL. Ask Billy Parcells he’ll tell you. I have read in a book about Bill Belichick that Parcels became sarcastic, sardonic, or whatever to his players because of those political struggles coaches go thru.

    FACTS FIRECHILD– FACTS!!! Dennis Green made some of the same “blunders” as Chilly. Do I need to remind you of the play at the end of the 2nd quarter or at the end of the 4th in the NFC championship game against Atlanta? How about the NFC championship game against the Giants when we were shut out, 41-0? AGAIN, YOU CANNOT HAVE IT BOTH WAYS!!! You talk in circles– Green was a good coach, Childress is not, though they made similar mistakes in managing games– and remember Green did not win a playoff game until 97 in NY against the Giants. Childress won the division twice after only two years.

    Yes, I knew what you meant as I’m certain everybody else did. But if you are going to insist on perfection from everyone else’s typing, you need to show no less than the same yourself.

Green had Chris Carter, Randy Moss and Jake Reed at wide rec, Cunningham at QB who had the highest rating I think ever– he was phenomenal, we had the best O-line in the NFL.
    MAN– keep arguing, you are chasing your tail– you are on the run, you are not making sense any longer, I rest my case. I am done with this debate, you more than helped prove my point– Childress is a good coach — and by your reasoning and logic, Childress is a better coach than Green– because Green had a better team. firechild has seen the light.

If so, then you must also agree that Chilly is wrong for the team too. In such a case, your constant defense of Chilly is essentially a lie to your own feelings.

    Not necessarily PP– because if there is one “type” of position, it is fine to write it as I did, especially because of the way they were utilized as two different running styles in the same capacity. English has great flexibility.

    BS&S – You said he won the division twice after two years. It would read the same as saying “after two years Childress had 2 wins within the division.”

    If you were to present the statement to anyone without knowledge of the situation, and who had an admirable understanding of the English language, they would interpret it as I have presented.

    Further, he only had 1 Division win in his 3rd year, so even if your defense was valid, you are still wrong.

    Back to the topic – Childress’ record shows that, at best, he WAS a good coach. His record and decisions made specifically in this year show that he no longer is. There are also rumors that numerous members of his team are calling him out on his poor coaching abilities this year.

    I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt that the first 5-losses were flukes. But only after he proves as such with a strong performance in the second half of the year. Until that starts to show, I will stay strong with my conviction that Childress no longer deserves the position of Head Coach.

    I sure hope that the coach can say TJack. Brett has had some impressive flashes this season, especially recently. His errors are too much for the flashes to overcome for my taste though. TJack may not have those impressive moments, but I don’t believe he will be making nearly such a large magnitude of errors either. I’ll take consistently average over Brett’s performance in a heartbeat.

    There is one thing I do have to say about the blogs and that is please “fire childress” enough already. We all know that Childress needs to get fired but come on stop dragging this stuff out it is getting annoying, very annoying. The Moss issue was a great decision because that little cry baby don’t deserve to be back in MN. He did not do anything that helped us. He only caught the ball when it fell in his hands and that is it. He never put any effort in catching the ball cause he thought he was too good to have to. So please stop with this S@#T already let it go and just support the Vikings. That is who you invested your money in right the Vikings, not Childress.

    Not so sure about the fine amounts. If you make a million or more a year and you have a 2,000 fine, it’s a joke and has no punitive damage. Look at Peppers and his income– 2,000 is like a few loose coins in his pocket. For a fine to be a fine, it has to have some weight. Now, firechild, where and what do they do with that money will determine if the NFL is too greedy– but I think you are right– they are all about the money in the end anyway.

    This is a great place to come together to start a road winning streak. With all of the ups and downs of chaos and leaks out of Winter Park. Jumping on a plane and being on the road in a hostile environment can cause a good team to come together. Mike Martz doesn’t have all the pieces in place yet with the Bears offense , so this isn’t the week to unveil “The Greatest Show on Turf part II.” Be aggressive, take good angles, wrap up on tackles. Keep your focus, and eliminate dumb penalties. Make the Bears beat us, not ourselves.

    Interview with AP

    Q: Childress has talked about how much Chicago tries to strip the ball. Have you noticed that?

    A: Yeah. They’re kind of like New Orleans. They’d rather try to strip the ball than tackle first. That can hurt you in the long run. That’s one thing those guys do. I’ve seen it on tape. I’ve just got to continue doing what I’ve been doing; keeping the ball high and tight and taking advantage of those guys stripping the ball instead of going for the tackle.

    Q: How much of a factor has that been for the big days you’ve had against the Bears, going after the ball instead of trying to get you to the ground?

    A: I’ve seen on film more this year more than the past few years that these guys are really emphasizing stripping the ball, attacking the ball, trying to pull it out. Tillman, he’s always been that type of guy that goes after the ball. I think that’s rubbed off on the other guys.

    GEE BRAD & LESLIE, DO YOU THINK YOU MIGHT WANT TO TEACH OUR GUYS TO DO THAT??? I MEAN, THE PACKERS DO IT, THE BEARS DO IT, OTHER TEAMS DO IT. SO WHY THE H E L L AREN’T OUR GUYS DOING IT LESLIE & BRAD??? ARE YOU BOTH IGNORANT OR TOO LAZY TO TEACH IT IN PRACTICE OR TELL THEM TO GO FOR THE STRIP?

    AND PEOPLE WONDER WHY WE HAVE A LOSING RECORD!
