I thought John Fox and the city of Chicago murdered Jay Cutler and tossed him in Lake Michigan. Seriously, the vitriol coming out of Chicago in Jay Cutler’s direction was a little extreme, even by New York City fandom standards.
Sure, Cutler sucks and is wayyyy too apathetic to be the face of the franchise, but he is not to blame for the dysfunctional mess that is the Bears. And in all honesty, there are about 50% of NFL teams that would take Jay Cutler as their starter right now. Good lord, I know my Jets would.
As for the Vikings, I f*cking knewwwwww it. I’m sorry, I don’t care how good your defense is, but a team WITH Sam Bradford and WITHOUT Adrian Peterson is not going to be the best regular team in the NFL, let alone a Super Bowl winning team. More importantly, a serious playoff contender just does not look to the Bears, ESPECIALLY with an extra day to prepare, because the Bears are currently a bottom 5 NFL team. You have to feel for their defense because they are putting on for the squad, but at the end of the day, it’s the Minnesota Vikings, who gives a f*ck?
Look for the Vikings to finish something like 10-6 and lose in the Wild Card round.
