    Beating Minnesota isn't exactly a super-secret formula like Coke or the D-Day invasion or something.

    Basically, you load the box with an extra safety to contain AP (just don't let him win the game all by himself) and DARE Christian Ponder to beat you. He generally can't.

    If you have any kind of a decent pass D (and the Bears have a stellar DL and 2 pro bowl CBs), HE CAN'T.

    Don't worry, the Bears d-line will show up and Ponder will be running for his life, best believe the bears will be putting the pressure on and our secondary will get some picks.......the only way the Vikings will win is if Peterson has a good game and that won't be a given come this sunday.

    AP tends to have a field day against the Bears

    He did in the past, but those days are over......AP will get some yards but nothing that will turn the tide to help the Vikings win come sunday.

    AP is going to get over 100 yards, but I see the Bears winning because we might actually have an Offense this year, and that will force Minnesota to eventually abandon the run game.

    Ponder is another Orton, he can not take the game on his back and win it.

    Well until we show that we can stop him, all we can do is assume it will happen again. I will not say we can stop him until we do. Last weeks DL performance did not give me anything to believe we can stop the best RB in the NFL from doing whatever he wants

    I agree with Benji; I understand the rust that Melton and Pep probably had and I'm willing to wait to pass judgement beyond just the first game of the season, but AP could have a field day on us. DJ Williams better strap it up as well, AP will pass him by like he's waiting for a train. The Bears SHOULD win this game handily, but they call games like this "traps" for a reason.

    The key is doing the same to them as everyone did to us for years. Bottle up AP as best we can, prevent the big play, and force Ponder to win it through the air and I doubt he can. I think the pass rush will be much better this week and our secondary is out to prove that last year was no fluke. Forcing Ponder to throw should result in some picks and a few sacks.
