Looking into the Bears’ proverbial mirror with this weeks match-up, I saw a familiar sight, something I saw not too long ago…
If the Chicago Bears were a jigsaw puzzle, there would be few pieces that have been put together to show the finished product…in other words, the Bears are now what the Vikings were in the past-before the Zimmer era. The Bears are a team that is average at best…a middle of the road team…a team that is looking for a new identity…sound familiar? Our Vikings were there not too long ago, and thanks to strong drafts and great coaching, the Vikings have turned the corner-into contention.
Although the Vikings haven’t beaten the Bears in Chicago in a long, long time, (even then Viking Brett Favre couldn’t do it) this is a different Viking team: they are not push-overs-they do the pushing, they used to get punished-now they do the punishing.
Given where both team are currently at heading into Sunday’s match-up, the once “Monsters of the Midway” are a distant memory and the Purple People Eaters are hungry again, and on the attack!
Our defense will gobble up the Bears’ O-line and swarm Cutler in a sea of purple rage.Our offense will strike swiftly and efficiently, leaving no doubt that the Vikings are a force to be reckoned with for a long, long time.
