Well, this will be the first pro football game for my son to attend. He's a Brian Urlacher fan so he'll be in full Bears regalia. I'm thinking of wearing my autographed Gary Larson Jersey (I'll keep the other autographed PPE jersey's on the wall), haven't seen them play in the Dome (haven't wanted to), might be fun.

I'm hoping for a good game. Would be nice to see AP run all over them again, but I don't know if he'll have a game against them again like he did last year.

AP is gonna shred em to pieces. Gus will only attempt 25 passes, a TD and a pick, special teams will give up a big one that will lead to a score, but the Vikes will pull away in the third quarter, and we will grind em out in the fourth. 27-13 Minne.

huh? the bears have one of the worst pass defenses in the league. i like the idea of riding AP in the game, but with chicago you might as well pass, because they cant stop it

We can't pass...

Grossman and Orton are no Joe Montanas in their own rights

Can't wait for the game either! I'll be attending the game and I pray to have even a little bit of a voice when its over. HUGE GAME! With that cheesehead loss on monday its for the division. I think our boys can pull it off though. 35-12 Vikes.

Earlier this year was the first time Orton had faced the Vikes since '05. His stat lines from those games:

16-25 att, 117 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT

6-14 att, 59 yds, 0 TD, 0 INT

I had no idea, just threw it out there, we are talking about Viking luck after all, it wouldn't have suprised me if Orton rocked against us.

No doubt there is a basis for your thinking.

The same as the quarterback of the Minnesota team, nobody. You are still looking for one.

Orton has improved a bunch since his rookie year. His rookie year he was thrown into being a starter and had the playbook scaled back and handed the ball off.

If Minnesota had to do the same and put Booty in there, I don't think he would fare as well.

Orton was a backup the last two years and learned the playbook, got stronger and lost weight. It is too bad that he got hurt and missed some time as it would be interesting to see how well his stats and Bears would have fared.

I would take Orton any day over Gus or Jackson.

Oh yeah Grossman will be available for you next year!!

i'd just about take any qb in the league over gus or tjunk...that isn't saying much.

but on the brightside atleast we have some sort of passing attack with gus...just enough to open up some running space for peterson and chester.

tough match up for both squads

monster game.....theres some football left to be played but the winner of this game might be the team to go on and win the division.

Coaching loses this game. I will throw out two predictions; One is if we win, the other is if we lose. The Vikes don't lose for lack of talent, they lose for lack of creative coaching. Th Vikes don't win because of Coaching; They win because they have alot of talent t overcome the coaches short comings.

If the Vikes win:

Vikes 31

Bears 20

If the Vikes lose:

Bears 23

Vikes 16

    •   Dave, I’ll take a shot at your question. Just like you always say, we can’t be the police for the whole world. On the same lines we can’t be the world’s health and human services department as well.   Do you honestly think that people in need are only in Mexico a couple hundred miles from the US border? There are many people throughout the world that don’t have good jobs and find it tough to put food on the table. What separates those people from the Mexicans a couple hundred miles from the border? Do you want to tell the family in Africa that since they are a couple thousand miles from our border they don’t count?   It’s a cruel world as they say and the US caps immigration at a certain number each year. Is it fair for the people that wait their turn and go through the proper channels to immigrate here and then say oh well to the immigrants that sneak across the border illegally? There is a system in place and all immigrants should follow it whether they are 100 miles from our border or 2,000 miles from our borders.   In a perfect world we could let anyone that has a tough life into the US but that would be an astronomical number of people and our country and economy could not support that no matter how much we tried. What Jesus or good Christians would do is not feasible in today’s world, we can’t save all the people in the world no matter how hard we try.
    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.
    •     What one did you get???
    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.
