You mean Berger?

I actually don't hate that combination.

That line would be better. But Sirles and Hill Bother me. Might be the best though for the Bears.

The Vikings added center Cornelius Edison to the active roster, with Pat Elflein out tomorrow. They put Kevin McDermott on injured reserve, which means Jeff Overbaugh is the long snapper indefinitely.

Looking back at 09, pretty eerie how similar it was to this year. Losses to Carolina and Pitt. Wins against the Rams, Ravens. Chasing an NFC East team (Saints) for best record in NFC. Needed to win the last two and have one team lose for home field but lose it in week 16. Let's hope the Bears don't play spoilers again.

Yeah but we win on the road against GB, and we lost in Chicago in 2009. This team did a little better than that 2009.

We lose to the Bears Sunday and we have no business in the Super Bowl!

I can't believe some of the pessimism I'm reading on this Forum this week going into this game and looking forward. :wallbang:

I think this team plays more consistently than the 2009 squad did. The 2009 squad had a horrible December and pretty much lost their HFA because of losses to teams that (at least on paper) they should have beat. I actually have more confidence in this squad because I believe they are more balanced on both sides of the ball.
