EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Jared Allen's reputation as one of the league's best pass rushers has earned him extra attention from opposing offenses. Now, Allen and the Chicago Bears are both saying his reputation in a different manner will save him from any extra attention on Sunday.
Allen, who knocked out Chicago Bears offensive linemen Lance Louis with a vicious block on an interception return when the two teams met just two weeks ago, doesn't expect to encounter any payback when the Minnesota Vikings host Chicago this weekend. Meanwhile, the Bears are saying the same thing in advance of the game, trusting that Allen didn't intend to injure Louis, who is out for the season with a knee injury because of the hit.
"I don't think that Jared is that type of player," Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler said Wednesday in a conference call with Minnesota reporters. "I don't think he was out intentionally to hurt anybody. I've played against him when we were ...
BEST OF MAXIM
With the division rival Bears heading to town, Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway wants fans to arrive at the game "super-duper drunk" by drinking "liquor, not beer."
This is Mark Swanson. I'll bet his friends called him "Swanny" in high school. Or Marky. Or ... Well, he's allegedly 39 years old, so maybe he's young enough to have gone by Marky Mark? I don't know. Either way, he's a Minnesota Vikings fan who recently attended a Vikings/Packers game at Lambeau field. In retrospect, he probably wishes he wouldn'...
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...
The Chicago Bears' defense is finding it difficult to close out games and showing signs of some real wear and tear.
Playing without injured linebacker Brian Urlacher and with several other lineup changes, the Bears will have to find a way to turn it around Sunday against a Minnesota Vikings offense that can run opponents into the ground behind Adrian Peterson. A win would also...

Kelvin Hayden will get the start at cornerback in place for injured Tim Jennings when the Chicago Bears travel to Minnesota Sunday to face the Vikings. Jennings was hurt late in the Bears overtime loss to Seattle. In his place steps the veteran Hayden, who has played the nickel back role for much of the season. Hayden’s experienced in the [...]
How Many Boos Does Christian Ponder Get?
Does he get all the boos? Every single one? Will any of them be directed at Big Leslie or Bill Musgrave? I would think some of them would be, wouldn't you? When will they start? Right away? When the offense runs out on to the field? I bet they'll announce the defense to prevent that from happening. But as soon as the offense takes...
When the Chicago Bears (8-4) and Minnesota Vikings (6-6) meet in the Metrodome on Sunday afternoon, it will be the second time in three weeks that these two teams have faced off. In the Thanksgiving weekend matchup between the two teams Chicago walked out of Soldier Field with a 28-10 victory. However, this will be a much different Bears team that faced the Vikings two weeks ago...
With Tim Jennings likely to miss this Sunday’s contest against the Minnesota Vikings, the Chicago Bears will turn to Kelvin Hayden to take over the starting cornerback role.
After a long layoff, induced by poor play and landing in Lovie Smith’s doghouse, D.J. Moore will be back in his familiar role as Chicago’s nickelback on Sunday against the Vikings.
