After a nightmarish performance against the Pats last week, the Bears
responded with 40-14 "drubbing" of the depleted Vikings in the cold of TCF Bank Stadium. I do however, want to "tip-my-hat" to those faithful Viking fans who came-out in force to support their team despite the frigid weather. In fact, most (if not all) of the Viking fans seem to relish playing outdoors in Minnesota again. Even Zigi Wilf continued he's petition for a new "outdoor" stadium. Minnesota, I give you the "thumbs-up".
As we pointed out here at "The Forum", the Bears played possession football
(with Matt Forte running for 92 yards), got huge takeaways on defense (knocking out Farve in the process), and got a record setting punt return by "The-Best-In-The-Game" Mr. Devin Hester. Jay Cutler also did what only great players do, and that is bounce back from bad performance in the previous game, and ran our offense to near perfection with a 106.6 QB rating, and 3 TDPs on the day. Johnny Knox redeemed himself with a brilliant catch on 67 yard TD bomb from Cutler that put us ahead to stay early in the game.
I was also proud to hear Cutler continue to show his commitment to "winning" in
his post-game comments. Cutler is enjoying life with Mike Martz, and truly believes that He can lead the Bears to bigger and better things this season (referring to this divisional championship as "the-first-step").
So now we can secure the 2nd seeding (in The NFC) in the post season with games we can win at home against the NY Jets, and on the road in Green Bay. People are now officially naming our Bears among the "elite" teams in the NFL. So (as Denny Green put it), "They Are Who We Thought They Were - So Crown Their A@#!"!
GO BEARS GO!!!
