Vikings-Bears Broadcast Information

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 12, 2010 – 1:00 pm

Vikings fans who will watch this weekend’s game against the Chicago Bears on television will be familiar with the crew broadcasting the game. The same group that brought you last week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals will be at Soldier Field bringing you this week’s game.

The game will be aired on TV by FOX beginning at 12:00 p.m. CT, with Kenny Albert calling the action and Daryl Johnston handling the analyst role. The sideline reporter will be Tony Siragusa.

There will be local and national radio broadcasts, with Sports USA Radio Network handling the national broadcast. Larry Kahn will be the play-by-play man with Ross Tucker taking on the analyst role. Troy West will be the sideline reporter.

But the best way to take in the Vikings-Bears game – other than being at Soldier Field – will be to listen to either KFAN-AM 1130 or KTLK 100.3 FM. Voice of the Vikings Radio Network Paul Allen will call the action with former Vikings LB and coach Pete Bercich analyzing the action. Former Vikings punter Greg Coleman will be the sideline reporter.

There will be a pre-game show on the Vikings Radio Network as well, with Mike Mussman anchoring the coverage. That begins at 10:00 a.m. CT. KFAN and KTLK serve as the flagship stations for the 72-station, 5-state Vikings Radio Network.

    The Bears tendency to blitz is one form of their aggressiveness on defense, but another is their penchant for forcing turnovers, specifically fumbles. They do this by making a point to punch and rake at the football while defensive teammates hold the ball-carrier up.

    “They’re a great rake it, strip it, try to punch it out team,” Childress said. “You have to be mindful of taking care of the football here because they do a great job of the second guy in the pile trying to take it.”

    YEAH I KNOW THEY DO THAT BRAD, BUT WHAT ARE WE?

    The Bears have forced more fumbles (20) than any other NFL team and only 4 teams have recovered more fumbles than Chicago (9). Peterson, who dealt with fumbling issues last year but so far this year has rectified the problem, has taken note of the Bears fumble-forcing habits

    YEAH I KNOW THERE ARE OTHER TEAMS THAT DISRUPT THE OTHER TEAMS OFFENSE BY BLITZING MORE, STRIPPING THE BALL, CAUSING FUMBLES AND CRETING TURNOVERS, BUT WHAT ARE WE?

    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.

    YEAH I KNOW THAT AP, BUT WHAT ARE WE?

    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.

    YEAH I KNOW THAT AP AND BOY WHAT A CONCEPT HUH? ACTUALLY TRYING TO CREATE TURNOVERS BY STRIPPING THE BALL AND CAUSING FUMBLES, END HEY CHECK THIS OUT…..BLITZING MORE OFTEN TO DISRUPT THE GAME OF THE OPPOSING TEAM’S QB…WOW WHAT A CONCEPT, BUT WHAT THE H E L L ARE WE?

    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 CAUSE A FUMBLE? BLITZING, WHAT OF YOU THINK OF THAT? YOU COULD ASK THE OTHER TEAMS HOW THEY DO IT SO SUCCESSFULLY AND HAVE THEM TEACH YOU GUYS HOW IT WORKS. HAVE THEM TEACH YOU ABOUT STRIPPING THE BALL TO CAUSE FUMBLES AND TURN OVERS. OH WAIT, OUR METHODS ARE WORKING JUST FINE. NEVER MIND….

    AND PEOPLE WONDER WHY WE HAVE A LOSING RECORD

    I WILL TELL YOU WHAT WE ARE, WE ARE A TEAM THAT PLAYS TOO D A M N CONSERVATIVE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL AND WHEN WE FINALLY REALIZE IT AND DO A LIITLE BIT OF CHANGING THAT APPROACH, THE SEASON IS OVER AND WE ARE OUT OF THE PLAYOFFS.

    BUT HEY, AT LEAST WE TRIED SOME NEW THINGS A COUPLE OF TIMES DURING THE YEAR TO WIN A COUPLE OF GAMES.

    THAT’S WHAT WE ARE!

    TELL YOU WHAT, WHY DONT WE JUST ORDER SOME POPCORN THIS SUNDAY FOR OUR GUYS AND HAVE OUR GUYS SIT AND WATCH HOW A REAL TEAM PLAYS A PHYSICAL GAME OF FOOTBALL ;)

    YES SIR MIKE MAYLOCK, YOU ARE RIGHT. PREMIER PLAYERS LIKE FAVRE, PETERSON & HARVIN CAN’T GET IT DONE WITHOUT THE O-LINE & D-LINE PLAYING AN AGRESSIVE GAME AND NOT MAKING MISTAKES.

    Sorry everyone, just woke up today with a bad feeling about the game this Sunday and that Childress & Frazier are going to be the same ole coaches and our team wont play any different.

    your right Bruce, Chilly already has 14 million dollars locked into this contract, he gets free money if he gets fired. he will never get another NFL job, so MR Wilf will get stuck for the whole tab

    bruce i hope you feel better after that tyrade, not that theres anything wrong with that, i’d say most of us fellow vike fans feel the same way..

    we have been our worst enemy all year, why change now?

    Enough of the negetivity and arm chair quarterbacking already. I agree that we play too conservitive but all the hate is not going to make it better. I have been a Vikings fans since 1968 and have had alot of heartbreak along the way but this constant disrespect does not help.

    GW, it’s not so much disrespect as TOTAL FRUSTRATION. Kind of like when your kids keep making the same mistake over & over again and don’t change their behavior. You are patient at first until you get tired of them not fixing what they do wrong. What makes it so hard is that when you see that they know how to fix it but they are not trying that hard.

    When I see teams like the Saints, Bears & Packers with their players ATTACKING THE BALL and creating turnovers, and even scoring 6 points on strips, it just makes me ask myself why with all our talent are we not seeing our team attack the ball like that? The answer is BAD COACHING!

    i love watching the Vikings right around the holidays, late December. only problem there is we will more then likely be out of the playoff race by then, so i’ll watch another team like New England. great team and excellent coaching ! thanks alot Chilly for ruining the upcoming holidays for all the Vikings fans !!!!!!!!! go back to Philadelphia Chilly !!!!!!!!!!! Mr Wilf, hear our voices !

    Bruce I agree with you, they need to creat more turnovers and attack the football. The thing is, all good defenses start with a pass rush, and we havent had one all year. Now they showed up late in the game against the Cards, but we need them the rest of the way if we are going to right this thing. Besides last game I think we have been a pretty sound tackling team. You give up some of your “sure tackles” as well as field position sometimes when you go for the ball. But then again its one of those risk vs reward things. Plus it’s alot easier to create turnovers when playing with a lead, something we cant seem to get…

    We moved the ball, we worked the clock. We took the points on the first drive. This is the better start we were hoping for. It’s still early!

    what is up with our DEFENCE? Cutler sucks under pressure and the defensive coach should have Blitzed A LOT more. We should just fire the whole coaching staff and look towards next year!!!
