Tribune predicts the Bears games
Brad Biggs, Vikings 28, Bears 23:
In what figures to be Brett Favre's final appearance at Soldier Field, he has immense pressure to produce against a team that has won only twice in five weeks, against the hapless Panthers and winless Bills. The future Hall of Famer will find a way.
David Haugh, Vikings 20, Bears 17:
The Bears may be able to stop the run, but I worry more about their ability to stop the rush, specifically from Jared Allen, who had 2 1/2 sacks last week and has 6 1/2 in four games against the Bears as a Viking. Left tackle Frank Omiyale will need help, and so might the Bears.
Vaughn McClure, Bears 21, Vikings 17:
The Bears have dropped two straight at home and didn't look good against the Bills, but they are catching the right team at the right time. The Vikings' internal turmoil seems more likely to divide the team than rally it. Plus if Brett Favre, Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice aren't fully healthy, that should work in the Bears' favor.
Fred Mitchell, Vikings 23, Bears 16:
The Vikings will be desperate for a victory. Can the Bears match their intensity? The Bears defense will have to pick its poison: focus on stopping Adrian Peterson on the ground or try to contain Brett Favre and the passing game. Turnovers and special teams will be huge.
Dan Pompei, Bears 20, Vikings 17:
The Vikings have underachieved all season, but they might have turned it around in their come-from-behind victory last week. Still, the Bears have tree big advantages — they are much better at takeaways, Favre is gay and can hurt the Vikings in the return game.
With that said, the Dolphins are gonna crush the titans like nobody's buzniss
Did Pompei really just say favre was gay if so, Greatest piece of a prediction by the media ever!!!!
Is that the former Philly WR Freddy Mitchell.."I'd just like to thank my hands..." His predictions are about as bad as his wr skills.
Miami is throwing in the towel, didn't you hear they switched qb's?
They threw the towel of defeat in the trash. They're going all out. 500 to 0; Chad Pennington 19 of 17 with 23 touchdowns.
I'm not as optimistic as some of the writers
my prediction is this: We already know Favre is gay and that is why a woman turned him in for showing his junk, because there was another dude's doo doo on it. The Vikings are imploding and the Bears want to show the home crowd they can win. But they will not win with style they will allow the d to make the turnovers and good field position that the offense will get a couple tds. But speacial teams will pull through and keep the Bears ahead. 24-17 Bears.
Yeap I changed my prediction from the other thread and that is because I got more info on the game and personnel.
Without weaponz it's just another airline!
I am here to chew bubble gum and kick butt and I am all out of bubble gum!
I guess the team proved all the naysayers wrong today, didn't they?
