I am pretty pumped for this game minus one position, most of you know that. I hope A.P shows up for meetings this week and goes nuts vs.Da bears.

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

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
