Back In Minnesota After Rough Loss To Bears

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 14, 2010 – 7:36 pm

The Vikings have returned to snowy Minnesota after traveling to Chicago and suffering a 27-13 defeat at the hands of the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. The loss drops the Vikings to 3-6 while Chicago improves to 6-3.

Soldier Field has been a tough place for the Vikings to play in recent seasons but they hung in tough early in the game, even taking a 3-0 lead into the 2nd quarter. But as low scoring as the 1st quarter was, the 2nd quarter was just as high scoring, with Chicago posting 14 points in the period and the Vikings putting up 7. Chicago took a 14-10 lead into the locker room at halftime after missed FGs by both Ryan Longwell and Robbie Gould in the final minutes.

Mistakes plagued the Vikings in the 2nd half, though, and the Bears were able to pull away with 13 points in the final 2 quarters to log the 14-point win. The mustered just 1 FG in the 2nd half and QB Brett Favre threw 3 INTs – 1 came on a tipped pass and another came when Adrian Peterson fell down.

Speaking of Peterson, he’s historically dominated the Bears. But on Sunday the Bears held him to just 51 yards rushing and the Vikings offense was never able to find a rhythm as a result.

LB E.J. Henderson led the Vikings in tackles with 10 and fellow LB Chad Greenway was 2nd on the team with 9 stops, including 2 for a loss. DE Jared Allen tallied 1.0 sack but it was the only time the Vikings were able to bring Cutler down behind the line of scrimmage. Cutler’s success throwing the ball and converting 3rd downs was a huge factor in the game. Cutler finished going 22 of 35 for 237 yards and 3 TDs with 2 INTs. The Bears were 11 of 19 (58%) on 3rd downs.

The Vikings will go back to work this week and prepare for a battle against the Green Bay Packers at Mall of America Field next Sunday. It will be the 100th meeting between the 2 franchises in their storied rivalry.

    WHAT in the world is going on with this team? Who is in charge of the plays? Who is in charge of this team? Why doesn’t Brett get protected better? Why does the other QB have all day to throw? I am just in absolute MISERY over this season. WHO would have thought after last season that what has happened this season could really be happening? It is unbelievable. Does anyone from this team have any answers?

    Well, now we have to get a new coach in by Tuesday– a winning super-bowl caliber coach, not a promoted coordinator from our team. We need a tough, dynamic visionary who knows both the attitude and knowledge of winning. Then we need to put the hammer down in each and every game. One game at a time and maybe, just maybe we get in the playoffs on a hot streak (no Sterger pun intended) and still win the Superbowl. Now that would be a storybook ending, but we need the Wilf brothers to act quickly and decisively, which I am confident they are– go Vikings!

    Another depressing loss. Why? – well it sure isn’t only cuz of Favre’s 3 INT’s. Where the heck is the defense and pressure on the opposing QB? I realize we’ve had injuries and are left short at WR, but we have even bigger problems that that. PLEASE someone take control of this team and get these guys playing harder. Where’s the pride? Forget the media pushing for gossip on team and coaching issues, just play FOOTBALL. Maybe, just maybe, we can get it together and beat the upcoming Packers and get a winning streak going.

    Does anyone else think that if the Viking fans went on strike and not go to next weeks game and just have Packer fans there that Mr. Wilf might actually listen and finally fire Chilli? Just a suggestion.

  27. By kraze k on Nov 14, 2010 | Reply

    I can not believe that Childress is staying. How many people here think that the Vikings will lose to the Packers next week from Childress’s stupidity? Nevermined I think I know the answer to that-everyone, right? The longer Childress is the head coach the longer the Vikings will keep losing. There is no moral in that locker room anymore. If you do not have moral than you do not have pride, hope, will, or anything else that I did not mention. Trust me on that one because honestly I was in the military and that drained everything from me in my life due to not having any moral. It is sad to see the Vikings team like this. They are always looking unhappy, not interested in the game anymore. There is no moral. The Vikings have no pride, no energy, no hope on the field and I am guessing but in the locker room also. The only way they possibly do is by their fans in MN but if the fans turn their back on them because of Childress then they have nothing to play for other than a pay check but then their love for playing football will deminish drastically. The Vikings team has something known as the “Soul Sucker” and his name is Brad Childress. Even though this Vikings team is a drastic disappointment this year I will still be a fan of the players. It is just that every year it keeps getting harder and harder knowing that the Vikings will always shoot themselves in the foot every year.

    I am not sure about the morals of a lot of players, although I think we have a good group. Morale, on the other hand, is probably low.

    Just finished watching the game, as I had to leave at halftime. I have to say that the game was poorly played by the Vikings. Unfortunately Farve gets 3 INTs, but 2 for sure are due to recievers slipping. We saw the weakness in the Defensive secondary and the Bears were able to run against the line. The game reminded me of the first 56 min agains Arizona. There is no fire and no leadership. We need a coach to fire these talented players up. Time to Fire Childress Now.

    I think that we do have a great group of “players” on this Vikings team but moral will just keep getting lower and lower I think. I mean just look at Favre’s press conference and then tell me what you think about moral for the team? Favre seemed like he wanted to put the blame on Chilli “publicly” but he probably did not want to get fined $50,000 or what ever the amount is. I am not going to disagree with you BS&S but I think it is lower then people actually think it is. Like I said look at how Favre was reacting to questions, tone of voice, and just plain body language. It is getting bad – real bad.

    I agree with you – fire childress- absolutely no one will take him now and Wilf’s Vikings fan base declining because of Childress. Second about your comment about possibly it being planned – I do not know – but being a fan who grew up in MN but now lives in Cali would not be too happy if they come here because they belong in MN and sh%^ Cali has enough football teams here and they are in debt still so why would they come here to the expensive state of Cali?

    To the Vikes and their fans: You are both “all in” !! You had better start getting behind your coach win or lose, because behind him is your team. One of the reasons the Vikings are feared is because their fans never give up. When the other team hears boos’ they’ve won half the battle. You want to be the extra guy on the feild, start acting like it! Right untill the last game!!!!!!!

    14 million is not chicken feed, even to a billionaire. But a billionaire wants to win, it’s in his or her nature. So, if you had a billion dollars, you could divide it into 71 piles of 14 million each. Imagine 71 boxes in your living room- each with 14 million. If you lost one to have a chance to not be embarrassed in front of all your billionaire friends, would you throw it out the window? Zygi will fire Chilly tomorrow.

    this is what the vikings need to do. First fire childress, Bench Sidney rice, then put Frazer in as head coach for the season. After that, bring in a good coach to become the new head coach, bring in a new defense of coordinator, offense of coordinator, and special teams coordinator, after all of that. Draft a QB in the first round, trade cook, Mckenie, and Phil Loadholt for either a Left tackle or something else. In this draft we will also have to draft a Free Safety, corner backs, Tackles, Guards, and defense of tackles. It will take this team about 3-5 years to get back into winning contention, but this is what is needed in order to be a winning team once again. this is going to take a long time to be proud of the vikings. I really wish Bill parcels would become the owner of this team, then I know the vikings would be in good hands.

    Look, try Joe Webb. Let him alternate with Farve. He can bring a positive spark to this offense. I just think that if you don’t use Webb you are wasting a dynamic athlete. Remember what Webb did in pre-season. He did that in every game in college. Grant it however it was only UAB, he would have been an huge asset for any team. The records he broke was no joke. It is just sad that many overlooked him then like they are doing now. Use him! Give Webb a try and let this program move in a new direction for the future!

    Where was our defense? Cutler had all day to pass the ball to whoever he wanted to and when their receivers caught the ball, there was not a Viking near by to tackle or intercept! And why couldn’t our receivers catch the ball? I felt bad for Brett! He had no protection and when he threw the ball, no one would catch it! It looked like our Vikings had no energy, no urgency to play or win the game. If you don’t like your coach, you could have at least played hard for Brett and your team.

    The Vikings lost today fair and square. Just as they lost the other 5 games. It is a part of life. Complaining does no good. How good would the wins be without the losses. Not every year is going to be a cake walk. The NFL would suck if the same teams won every year. The Vikings won the Division the last two years. So wipe away the tears and accept that you can’t always get what you want. It’s time for a new NFC north division champion, and that team just won’t be the Vikings this year, sorry:-(

    One point I disagree with many posts on is, today I didn’t feel the secondary was the weakness. When the quarterback has little to no pressure in his face and can take his time to survey the field they will find someone open. It’s a mess. It’s not going to be easy to lure anyone in from the outside. The worst part is, we traded Rosenfels who could have helped going into next year. This isn’t what Favre deserved. This isn’t what WE deserve either. To any Viking player who reads these posts, consider donating a game check to a charity of your choice. Your uninspired play is frustrating. I saw where 1,000 cars were towed in Minneapolis due to the storm. Hopefully, they cleaned out the Viking parking lot.

    fmfan…. turn away from the stat sheet and LOOK at this team… watch the freakin games. Tipped ball for an interception was a great def play. The other two were due to receivers falling down. Yeah, all Favres fault. Its also Favres fault that Harvin has had a few bounce of his chest into DBs arms. Man Favre sucks. He should be able to run down field after he throws the ball and catch it too. He should be able to go all ninja and elude the uninmpeded pass rushers that are on him before he can take a five step drop. COMPLETELY Favres fault, right? If Tavaris Jackson was in there, we’d be 9-0. Favre has never been worth a crud, yeah?

    ygirl… you are right, the Vikings will never be the Packers. Very astute of you to realize this fact. The name “Packers” has already been used, right? Now, I suppose that if the Green Bay team moved to Omaha, Nebraska because the fans there have most of their own teeth, and the Vikes got lost on the interstate and were abducted by some inbred Green Bay fans and were forced to don their jerseys, the Vikings might be thought of as Packers in that case. I don’t think it’ll happen, though.

    PS. When Brett goes into the HoF as a Packer, I hope I don’t see any of you Grren Bay fans that hate him so much at the ceremony. That would be pretty hypocritical of you.

    Some things never change – fmfan, you do not know anything about football and the suspicion that a guyu can be absolutely precise with EVERY pass is mistaken, especially when being chased and pounded like Favre has been (did you see the stat, he is hit 2 more times per game this year, a 50% INCREASE in contact – it does not explain his running for his life either – O-line sucks). But RECEIVERS get paid professional money and NEED to make plays, especially when the pass is not perfect. OUR receivers can’t catch and can’t get separation… Our line can’t block…. and Favre should be able to throw with surgical precision despite it all! Youa re a STAT watcher and pretend that is football knowledge.

    There is no pride in our offensive line – no talent either apparently. Loadholt and Herrera got blown up today – did not translate into ton of sacks, but Favre was running around for his life. Running the ball right was POINTLESS as those guys got pushed around like chess pieces – and Shiancoe is NOT a blocking TE and Dugan blows in ALL facets of game, Klodhopper is waste of roster jersey…. Most don’t realize the vallue of a great TE, Shianoe is not that. But our O-line is bunch of quitters – McKinniegoing to his first Pro Bowl last year was bogus – and he partied his rear off and was kicked off the squad – how perfect. THAT is the kind of competitor that fat-ass is. Hutch is way over-rated as he was run over pretty well the last coupld weeks…

    All I can say – has anyone looked at this years draft, if we carry on as we are I sure we will have a top ten pick. I don’t believe that Chilli will be here next season too many mistakes. However look at the last couple of years he has not done to bad. The problem with Sundays game – we only had 1 threat at WR and he was injuried at the start of the second half. This becomes very easy to defend and very hard at QB. How many drop catches extra.

    Listen we all no that the season is over. Mr Wilf made that perfectly clear yesterday when he told ESPN he had no intentions of letting Chilly go. Its not hard to see when your watching this team play that they cashed it in. There’s no effort at all from either the defense or offense. These players are ready for this season to end so they can spend time with there families. If a true viking fan watched Favre’s press conference after the game, his body language telling everyone, he’s ready for the season to end. Yes, I know that Brett is a great QB and a warrior but his season this year has been sub-par at best and he probably lost 3-4 games for us. And for the rest of the team, they should be ashamed of their selves the way they played this year regardless who’s coaching. Yes its time for us to get ready for a rebuilding process over the next few years, starting with a new coach and several of these players need to be gone also.

    I wanted to touch on the injuries this team has had all year. Last year for the most part this team was healthy all year. This year just the opposite and they are not able to overcome them like some teams can because all teams have injuries. We seem to be soft and afraid to play with injuries. I don’t know about you guys, but If I was Rice, why come back the season is lost. Why take a chance and get hurt when the season means nothing.

And yes he chose not to play, so i guess the game wasn’t that important to him if he played. I was never sold on him anyway. Rice has always been an AVERAGE RECEIVER AT BEST anyway. Brett made him what he was last year being a pro-bowler. Let’s see what he does next year with no QB unless Wilf goes out and spends some money on a QB like a Kolb/Vick.

It seems like Childress isn’t doing his job. At first I thought I would give Childress a chance….., but now all I can think of is…. Are you serious? Just like in the New England game during the end of the first half. There was enough time to have another go, but Childress didn’t go for it and Moss said are you serious with his face. We need a coach that knows how to play the game and when the chance is there. Take it. Childress takes chances at the dumbest times too. I’m sorry, I didn’t think I would’ve of said this…. but….

    Hippster, I agree we need to bring in a proven winner as a coach. And that doesn’t mean anyone on current staff. Fire Childress also has a good point. We are losing millions on childress whether he’s here or not. Were probably going to loose some good players also because Wilf won’t be able to pay them. I guess you have to look at the posssibility of a lock-out to which may have some players that we want not test market in fear of not making anymore money or getting long term contracts. I know there needs to be personnel changes both with staff and players. But going forward I don’t feel we have a franchise QB currently on roster waiting to replace Brett.

I truly believe they need to change coaches ASAP but is it too late…..it very well good be. Look the immediate change of the Cowboys. I think Childress is jealous of Favre – resents his press attention. The real pathetic part to this season is that after having the Super Bowl team they had last year….poor coaching didn’t want to mix it up for this year – no QB pass protection at all – what’s with Jared Allen and lastly, Brett has to retire with a bad, bad, loosing team – bottom line, I guess Longwell and partners should have left Brett in Mississippi so he could have gone out on top in the record books!

    Why don’t the Vikings ever blitz. OK, rarely blitz. Teams are picking us apart in the second level anyway so why not throw a blitz in every now and then.

    Chilly is a horrible coach, but theres always bad and good. I give it to him, building a football team, He would probably be the best ive seen in years.

    Wr- Percy, Rice, berrian, moss
    RB- AP, Gerhart
    QB- Favre, Tjack

    This guy has built a VERY good team, but when it comes to coaching…..(heres the bad) This guy seems to be very clueless, 98 vikes had so much success, because, DISCIPLINE! From Coach Green. He was on every single player about every single mistake!

    Favre throws a pick, and chilly probably greets him with a “its okay, well get it next time.”

    Favre throws picks, which most of them arent even his fault. players falling, lines not holding up nothin, not even air.

    Honestly, Toby, AP, all the RBS! how hard is it to block someone? Especially when U the offense can chop block?

    Defense? OMG its more like 7 on 11 more than 11 on 11.

    We have to face the real hard facts here. No matter how much we would like to see Childress be gone forever it isnt going to happen this year. Ziggy looks at this as pure business. He could care less what the Vikings fans think. He’s invested millions of dollars for a worthless human-being that knows nothing about football and isnt man enough to quit and give someonelse the chance to change around this team. Childress is as much of an ego-maniac as he is bald. We have NO OFFENSE/NO DEFENSE at all right now. Morale is at its worst right now. Where is the team that gave it their all last year? Where did they go? Frazier, when you are playing a poor O-line (Bears) where are the blitzes? You DIDNOT take advantage of this at all!!!!! So, Childress AND Frazier cannot make appropriate adjustments for this team. They stand on the sidelines with NO EMOTION whatsoever.. Just like a couple of robots they are. This team is in desperate straits with no answer in sight. All we as fans can do is sit and watch the tragedy unfold itself and the Vikings will implode upon themselves and it will truly be over over the year.

    This is the first time I’ve ever been on this blog, and I was interested in what has been said about Favre since I have always had alot of respect for him. I’m amazed at all of you people bashing him and the team. I know your season has been sub-par at best but don’t you people have anything else to do but sit on this blog and cry about up ifffffff. I would have figured that by know you would’ve had an interest in something else. To the point. You never won anything in football 0-4 in superbowls with better teams then what you have know. So should you see any light at the end of the tunnel. NOOOOOOOO. Get lifes, because if this is all you have to do, I feel sorry for your da—mn a—.

    Hey guys after reading all these post and I know we can sit and point the finger at Chilly all day I mean he did just cut Moss and lost us a 3rd pick next year and he has made a lot of mistakes coaching but the season is not over. If we win out we will be 10-6 and playoff bound and we all have seen teams do it before. The key is to straight up beat the Packers and I mean solidly beat them. If you take a look at our stats our Defense is number 8 in the league in total yards, I think 8 against the run and 8 aginst the pass so it is a top 10 defense with only 8 int’s and 13 sacks. If we can just get some pressure up the middle our DE will make plays for us. We just need to calm down jump off the firing Chilly chant until we lose our next game ;-) until then GOOOO VIKINGS.

    I have been a Viking fan for over 20 years …but I veture to voice my honest opinion to anybody who will read it……What has this Mr. Childress ever accomplished with these fine football players …..absolutly nothing …he calls the wrong plays every time they get into the red zone …..and with all due respect …why doesn’t Brett finally admit that he is ” DONE” … why continue this agony and look more embarrasing every time he steps on the field >
    Brett , come on staND UP TO BE A MAN …..before the fans start making silly jokes about you ….don’t you have any pride left …do you need the money sooo badly as if you face starvation ln tthe near future ???

    Please, BRETT , HANG THEM UP …you have accomplished everythinmg a great athlete could achieve ….why go on and look silly in front of the fans who have respected you , adored you and stuck with you through all these years .
    Sorry to be so direct , but if I was the Owner , this Coach would never play another second for me …even if he were the last Coach in this world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    How can any one person be the real reason that this once great Team is a disorganized , unhappy lot of top football players , who are so confused about who is calling the shots for this team .

    Its a pitty that all those wonderful Viking fans have to endure such a mess every sunday !!!These guys need a wake -up call and finally get a real football coach who knows what the heck needs to be done .

    Brad here-
    I didn’t think cleats would help our players……I was surprised that there was thick green grass gowing in Chicago this late in the year…..Oh well, blame it on Global Warming……..

    rob, unfortunately…not until the end of the season.I believe if they fire him before then & there is a strike,they pay out another years salary.Maybe the players can break out soap bars & socks and give him the full metal jacket treatment.I’d love to see that bald nob licker walk up to the mic with black eyes & say…”hats off to this team for whuppin my a@#”
