I will not give any credit to the Chicago Bears. Jay Cutler is a terrible quarterback and so is their entire team. The Vikings handed the Bears the game by playing poorly.
No sense of urgency
The Vikings didn't play with any emotion or a sense of urgency. They were lethargic and they had trouble making plays both on offense and defense.
This was a winnable game. The Vikings played a weak opponent that was reeling. Their fans were booing them after the Vikes took a 10-0 lead. So what did the Vikings do in that situation? Did they go for the jugular? Did they take advantage of their opportunity?
No they didn't take advantage of the situation? They looked like they were going through the motions. This is professional football and even bad teams will make you pay if you let-up. That's what Jay "Mr. Interception" Cutler did.
Vikings defense was horrid
When things have been going poorly on offense this season the Vikings defense has stepped up. On Sunday the Vikings defense allowed Jay Cutler and the Chicago offense to run all over them.
The Vikings never adjusted to Chicago's play calling. Chicago was able to run the same plays all game long without much of a push back by the Vikings. It was a frustrating game for this Vikings fan to watch.
This was a game that the Vikings should have won. The problem was that this team looked unprepared for the challenge of winning at Soldier Field.
If the Bears were a good team I could try and stomach this loss but I don't respect the Bears or their quarterback. So I can't stomach this loss.
The whole team played poorly
If I think that the Vikings defense was horrid today, the offense was equally as bad if not worse. The Vikings were unable to mount much of an attack all game long. The offensive line was pathetic again on Sunday.
Teddy Bridgewater was unable to move this team for most of the game and the Vikings do not have a reliable running game.
This loss is not solely on Teddy. It took the whole team to stink up the field. This loss is on the whole team.
When you don't have any part of your team playing well, you can't win. The defense has won us some games this season but they were non-existent against the Bears.
The offense could have taken advantage of terrible Bears team but they were non-existent as well.
If we're honest with ourselves, we know the Vikings played a terrible game when the washed up Jared Allen had a good game!
This was a game that I want to forget about. Right now that is hard to do. I'm mad at the poor effort by my favorite football team.
There's not much more that I can say. This was a terrible game!
