Vikings-Bears one-liners

The Vikings erased a 16-point Bears lead but RB Adrian Peterson’s fumble in overtime led to a 36-30 loss for the NFC North champs.

Tom Powers of the Pioneer Press thinks a third loss in four games is reason enough for Vikings fans to press the panic button.

Vikings G Anthony Herrera had a hard time blocking Bears DT Tommie Harris in the early parts of Monday night’s game.

K Ryan Longwell had a PAT blocked in the third quarter, a lost point that would come back to haunt the Vikings.

Said Vikings DE Jared Allen, “If I could cuss right now, I would. [This] sucked. We’re
playing bad right now. We’ve got to play better. Each man on this team
needs to go home and look himself in the mirror and figure out what we
want to be this year: An 11-5 team or a 12-4 team that makes noise in
the playoffs. That’s just the bottom line.”

David Haugh of the Chicago Tribune writes that Monday’s victory was an illustration of the lost potential of the Bears 2009 season.

Bears CB Charles Tillman and WR Johnny Knox were carted off the field after suffering injuries during the second half.

Bears WR Devin Aromashodu ended the game with a 39-yard touchdown catch, the final flourish on a seven-catch, 150-yard night.

The Bears held the Vikings to 82 yards and four first downs in the first half.

Said coach Lovie Smith, “It was an opportunity to show what we can be in the future; it’s about
our future. That was enough. Guys know when everyone is watching; you
want to play your best. It was pride, too, for guys who wear the
Chicago Bears uniform. At times, we haven’t been pleased with our play
or the power of our play. But we’re moving on.”

    Attention Favre haters:
    Do you still think he’s finished?
    Time to open your eyes and see through all that hate.

    Soon we will see the old man cry, then take the Bi-Queen fans to the Waffle House.
    It’s really fun to watch the re-run on the Minnesota channel.

    The Viking defense is lost without EJ Henderson and Jared Allen. What’s that you say, Jared Allen played last night? Huh, didn’t see him. I don’t like making predictions, but if the Vikes play Green Bay Jermichael Finley is going to own the Vikings linebackers.

  5. NYBearsFan says: Dec 29, 2009 10:21 AM

    I’m really happy the Bears won the game and the offense picked up, but I just hope this isn’t enough for the Bears to give Lovie more time!
    It’s time for him to go. He’s done good things for the organization, but what has he done lately? Nature of the beast.

  6. jamesz23 says: Dec 29, 2009 10:34 AM

    Favre played a great 2nd half. I think you can officially take Jared Allen out of the defensive player of the year argument – I’d put Demarcus Ware over him as best DE in the game. Pervy Harvin’s comment that Allen is better than Reggie White of the mid 90′s is laughable. White got better as the season wore on those years & didn’t get all his sacks in 3 games. Packers D dominating those seasons this Vikings D is not.

    Hey, where’s that Hercy Parvin guy who’s always on here shooting off his mouth about his awesome Purple guys???? VIKE ME!!! AP is a great running back, but I said early in the year that his fumbling would cost his team in the playoffs. Looks like the bill is coming due just getting IN to the playoffs. And hey, the Shriners called: They have a bed reserved in the burn unit for Antoine Winfield.

    Farve played a great game once Chilli opened up the play book and use the pass to set up the run.
    Too bad the defense and special teams didn’t show up.

  9. Philtration says: Dec 29, 2009 11:09 AM

    Get the hell out of town Lovie.
    You are the same idiot that kept Aromashodu sitting on the bench all year while Cutler begged for him to get in a game.
    Like we have not seen enough of Rashied Davis yet.
    He did the same thing with Bennett last year and Iglesias this year.
    Where the hell is D.J. Moore?
    How about Jarron Gilbert?
    These guys were play makers in college.
    When Lovie is not playing guys out of position they are sitting through his stupid “Red Shirt” routine.
    Give this slug his money and let him get back to washing Tony Dungy’s car where he belongs.
    As much as I enjoyed seeing the Vikings lose I want Lovie’s ass gone right after the game against the Lions.

    “Farve played a great game once Chilli opened up the play book and use the pass to set up the run.”
    Let me fix that for you……
    “Farve played a great game once Favre told She-Man Chilli to sit down and shut up so Brett could go and try to win this thing by using the pass to set up the run.”
    Childress can’t coach….should be apparent to anyone with a football I.Q. above 65.
    Hate to say it, but deep down we all know it.
    When (not if) we do not bring the S.B. trophy home this year, and we wont, it wont be Favres fault, it will be Childress’.
    Good thing we signed him to that extension, eh?
    So what do we have to look forward to?
    The off-season saga of #4′s will-he-wont-he.
    And if he doesn’t?
    Sage Hasenfeffer and T-Junk…………..

    Press the panic button. Press the schism button. Give a teary-eyed press conference, and hold a sideline heated discussion. It won’t do any good. The Vikings ship (love boat) is sinking. Time to bail.
    And did you hear Favre’s press conference. “I played as well as I could.” What a team player.

  12. wrath4771 says: Dec 29, 2009 12:35 PM

    Two things I notice: One, the defense isn’t the same without E.J. Henderson. He’s not the most talented guy on that defense, but he is obviously the brain – or something. Two, Childress is not a good coach. It may have taken 12 games, but it looks like teams have figured out what the Vikings want to do on offense and have adjusted. Childress has failed to make the necessary adjustments needed to get the offense back on track.

    Good point. Yeah, Vikings haven’t been the same since he went down. I don’t know if things will be different in the postseason or not, but as of now they aren’t playing too well, and it’s NOT the usual Favre meltdown either.
    Even though I predicted the loss to Chicago, I don’t think I can predict much else. The jury is out on how good this team really is.

  14. Ish says: Dec 29, 2009 12:57 PM

    We still need to give Lovie Smith and his gang the boot. Sure this was a great win for us, but lets not kid ourselves here, it was luck. If you want to talk about the stubbornness of the coach: how about where was DA throughout the season? How about why wasn’t Chris Williams playing the left from the beginning? Where was all of this sudden inventive offensive play calling all season (ex: Kreutz running from his position to help will the run) I can keep going, but I believe this is enough venting to show my support for firing Lovie.

    You looking for me son? LOL I don’t run from a loss,I’m a die hard Viking fan! Man, tell me Favre didn’t bring magic to the screen last night?The guy lives up to the legend. All you Favre melts down in Dec. folks look really stupid now.Told you he was injured last year. Oh,it was freakin cold out last night too!
    Vikings can beat anyone. Can lose to anyone.Just like all the teams in the playoffs. Will be fun.
    +5 for the Winfield crack,was hilarious! I’m not an uptight homer,humor is humor!

  16. Halas` Heros says: Dec 29, 2009 1:32 PM

    I’ve been reading comments on how difficult it has been for the Viking defense w/o their middle linebacker and how awesome Favre was in the second half, but those same people seem to conveniently forget that Chicago lost their MLB and a starting OLB in the first game of the season, their best corner early in the second half, and both of their starting safety’s were out!!!
    Chicago shouldn’t have been in the game!
    This game exposed both the weakness of the Viking’s team, and the ineptitude of the Bear’s coaching staff. The Vikings have not beaten a quality opponent away from home, and the Bears cannot develop the talent they have.
    Smith better not retain his job.

  17. mixman34 says: Dec 29, 2009 2:11 PM

    Winfield did get burned… repeatedly. Dude ain’t right obviously. He also missed a tackle in the backfield on Forte… he NEVER misses those. In fact he made a name for himself off of those tackles.
    All I can hope is people write the Vikes off after this slide (like AZ last year), then proceed to whoop everyone’s ass in the playoffs (like AZ last year). Hopefully Chilly can make it right, cause as we saw in the second half, the Vikes are unstoppable when they want to be.

  18. jamesz23 says: Dec 29, 2009 2:12 PM

    People also forget that about 6 plays before Favre threw the game tying TD to Rice he easily could have & should have been picked. The DB dropped the ball it was right in his mitts.

  19. sand0 says: Dec 29, 2009 3:04 PM

    The silver lining for Vikings fans is at least we can be written off now so if they do lose in the playoffs it isn’t spun into some shocking choke job story. It will be just one of many other 11-5 or 12-4 teams that lose in the playoffs.
    Vikings are a different team on grass, plain and simple. Browns they beat, but that was the Browns. Pack they beat in Lambeau, but the Packers played so tight and scared that night that anyone could have trounced them.
    Vikings beat the Giants and get a gift from Dallas and they won’t have to play on grass. If Philly gets home field forget the Superbowl because there is no way that this Vikings team, talented or not, can beat a good team on grass.
    Sucky thing is if they go to the super bowl it is played on grass meaning a likely loss but it would be nice if they could at least get that far.
    Winfield isn’t right and EJ is out. That is two of their better players and defensive leaders. It is definately hurting them right now.

    “Second, Peterson was clearly down before the refs decided to hand Chicago the win with a “fumble”.

    What friggin’ replay were you watching? Someone get 1-800-contacts on the horn. I think we have found their spokesman. And he’s out of product.

    Good stuff NYBearsFan. I agree with you and I even found myself feeling a bit sorry for Lovie last night. He will take the fall for a multi-idiot run franchise. I am disgruntled but am still and always a fanatic.

  22. Pervy_Harvin says: Dec 29, 2009 5:00 PM

    I’m not going to whine about it,but AP got the hell face masked of him on the fumble play. Its posted on Youtube…I hate to lose that way! Not saying we would of won…just like the game clean. Bears played their asses off.

  23. Murgen says: Dec 29, 2009 5:57 PM

    Hey Pervy Harvin, Good teams are able to overcome bad calls and non calls. It’s not the refs, your team just sucks.
    SKOL PACKERS

  24. pkrlvr says: Dec 29, 2009 6:25 PM

    murgen, you’re a douche. They won the division and beat the pack twice……so what does that make you’re team?

  25. Pervy_Harvin says: Dec 29, 2009 7:39 PM

    Murgen- Yah…we suck. doesn’t say much about the Pack then now does it? LOL idiot! Not much much chance to overcome a call in OT
