Forte practices, Peterson doesn’t

On Sunday, the Vikings will get reacquainted with one of the most-hated opposing quarterbacks in team history.

A decade ago, then-Cardinals quarterback Josh McCown knocked the Vikings out of the playoffs with a last-second touchdown pass to Nate Poole.  The officials decided that Poole would have gotten both feet down in bounds if he hadn’t been pushed out.  (That rule has since been changed.)

But McCown, who now plays for the Bears, isn’t the story, at least not yet.  As the game approaches, both starting running backs are injured.  On Thursday, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (groin) didn’t practice.  Bears running back Matt Forte (knee) practiced on a limited basis after missing Wednesday’s session.

Elsewhere for the Bears, receiver Brandon Marshall was limited in practice with a quadriceps injury.  He didn’t appear on Wednesday’s injury report.

Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes and receiver Joe Webb practiced on a limited basis after missing Wednesday’s session with concussions.

    I love the Josh McCown reference, that touchdown came on 4th down from about the 30 yard line and knocked the Vikings out of the playoffs. Trivial question, who got in in place of the Vikings…… Green Bay Packers.

    The Packers were beating the Broncos that day in GB so as the news came over the radio (a guy in my section had a portable TV), Lambeau Field exploded in celebration. If there is one thing you can bank on, its the Vikings chocking.

    Well, at least the Vikes won’t lose a playoff spot when McCown beats them this time.

    And what gives with Heidi fans not letting go? It was ten years ago.

    In all honesty, most Vikings fans could care less about the QB who threw the pass — most just remember vaguely recall the game. Hard to think much good about football today after watching that snooze-fest first game. And who posts twice in a row on one article — finish your pumpkin pie early Larry?

    Actually, yes.

    What could joe Webb have possibly done to wind up on the injury report?

    How about all the Packer trolls posting in here go post in the Josh Sitton “Embarrassing” thread? Face it! The Packers aren’t better than the Vikings are without Aaron Rodgers. In fact, they may be worse.

    There are only nine comments here. More Vikings fans posted on the packers articles relating to their loss to the lions.

    Man, I don’t think I could have that terrible of a life if I tried.

    Bears/Vikings. A game for two teams going nowhere this year. We need some posts about rebuilding.
