This week the Bears wrap up their season series with Minnesota Vikings in a must win game. First we wrapped up the Bears loss to Seattle, and talked about the Bears injuries. The Sport Doctor radio's Dr. Bob Weil joined us to give a professional look into what Brian Urlacher's hamstring injury really means. We also were joined by Tim Yotter of VikingUpdate.com to get an indepth look into the game in Minnesota.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. At 35 years old, Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield certainly isn't the same player he was at age 27, his first year in Minnesota. That's to be expected, though, when football players get older.
But thanks to added weekly rest this season, Winfield has been able to stay fresh and that means he's staying on the field on Sundays.
Winfield is Minnesota...
The Vikings are fresh off a heartbreaking loss to the Packers. Sitting at 6-6 Chad Greenway knew he had to say something to get his fans fired up for this weekends game against the Bears. Lets just say he now has the best quote of the 2012 NFL season and maybe one of the best of all time.
According to the Star Tribune, Greenway said:
We have to play accordingly and our fans have...
Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway admitted Thursday that he "went a little far" in saying that Minnesota fans should get "super-duper drunk" for the team's showdown against Chicago on Sunday.
"Obviously, I could have used some more responsible words," Greenway said on ESPN radio in Chicago.
After last Sunday's 23-14 Vikings loss at Green Bay...
With star wide receiver Percy Harvin placed on injured reserve, the Minnesota Vikings head into the final four games of the 2012 NFL regular season without their second-best playmaker.

Quarterback Christian Ponder has passed for the fewest yards (2,305) of any other 12-game starter and twice this season, he has been held to under 65 passing yards in a game...
The Vikings have bent over backwards to support Christian Ponder through a rough stretch, but at what point does winning now become more important than trying to develop Ponder? An in-game switch to Joe Webb doesn’t have to mean the end to developing Ponder.
With the regular season winding down, things like the MVP race, offensive and defensive rookies of the year and the comeback player of the year begins to thin out the candidates for the honors. The former always has time to change, as teams still have four games left and some of those candidates are on teams fighting for the playoffs. But for the latter, it seems to be coming...
The Vikings placed Harvin on injured reserve Wednesday with an ankle injury that never recovered. Reports suggested Harvin suffered a ligament tear.
Harvin caught 62 passes for 677 yards in nine games for one of the NFL's worst passing attacks before hurting his ankle during a Nov. 4 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
This move complicates an already-complicated potential...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Now that defensive end Everson Griffen has been fined, the Minnesota Vikings won't be any more pleased with the NFL over what it felt was a penalty on a clean play in last Sunday's loss to Green Bay.
The NFL announced Friday that Griffen will lose 15,750 for a roughing-the-passer penalty on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers late in the second quarter...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Jared Allen has spent five years with the Minnesota Vikings and is well-versed in the Chicago Bears and what they try to do, having played nine career games against Chicago.
Nothing would shock Minnesota's veteran defensive end, who unfortunately has a 2-7 record in those games. Of course, Allen's never had the chance to face Chicago twice in the span...
Part of the deal with the funding for the new Minnesota Vikings stadium has to do with the gambling revenue element. It has to do with games that are found on iPad-like devices which are, right now, fairly few and far between.
Conventional opinion has to do with the outlets that have to file paperwork and their slowness in doing so- since there's an alleged...
If there’s one thing Chad Greenway doesn’t do, its mess around. So when he tells you to get super duper drunk on Sunday, and be super duper loud. You better do it. Chad isn’t your average frat boy telling you to chug. Chad is the NFL’s leading tackler with 123 of them. The playoffs are [...]
Less than two weeks ago, the Chicago Bears ended a two game losing streak by defeating the Minnesota Vikings at Soldier Field 28-10.
The Bears’ defense held the Vikings to 258 yards of total offense and just one touchdown while forcing three turnovers.
In order for the Bears to remain in the drivers seat for at least a wild card spot, the defense will once again have to slow down...
