Vikings vs Bears… Good morning Horners! Your Minnesota Vikings played their backups versus the Chicago Bears and almost pulled out a victory in a meaningless, or at least to the playoff seeding, game. Drew, Ted and Dave discuss the afternoon action and the state of the team. Ted after a bad weekend for his team is not that optimistic going into next week against the Saints or the Seahawks, and at the time of the recording we don’t know which. That will change by the end of the evening though as the Forty Niners and the Seahawks will figure that out for us. A 49’er win means a trip to New Orleans and a Seahawk win means a trip to Seattle. Which would you rather play in next weekend?

There was some good play by some of the backups. Dave like the effort and attitude by Oli Udoh in for Brian O’Neill, even though he got some tick tack calls. Sean Mannion proved why he was just a backup and not a good one. Mike Boone had a much better game than last week with 160 yards of production and 148 of them on the ground. He even got a TD out of that. Alexander Hollins and Bisi Johnson were the two leading receivers but on the day, it was Dan Bailey that scored 13 of the Vikings 19 points. He also earned his $1,000,000 bonus for making more than 90% of his kicks this year… a good thing.

Matt Nagy and the Bears racked up their second win of the season and 4th against Mike Zimmer even though this win was against the second stringers. Does that cause you concern like it does for Ted and Drew? Next comes Pete Carroll or Sean Payton, two other coaches that tend to beat Zimmer teams, but who knows, this could be our year in these playoffs.

Mike Zimmer now needs to have his team “playing their best football” like he said going into the Wildcard Weekend against the Saints. His job may depend upon it, but will he?
