    And Kirk...I still hate the hesitation before some of his throws and I still hate the number of times he gets passes batted down
    I could be wrong because I don't have a PFF subscription anymore but I think 60 is the baseline of average where we are just trained as 70 being the baseline of average (School). It messes with my head because I see a 60 and I think it's below average. I do know that 90+ is considered elite.

    Will we score 34 playing the way we did against Chicago? No. But I don't think their offense can generate a lot against our D right now, either.

    17-10 Vikings Sunday in Chicago
    In big games our defense seems to either not show up or get off to a slow start (like GB). We need to get off to a strong start and not allow the crowd and Bears defense to dictate the game. If we can jump out to an early lead that they will have to rely on Mitch to throw more which is what they don't want.

    Honestly I don't think there is anything we can do in terms of pass protection. Bradbury is going to get killed in pass protection. We better be ready to run shotgun more times than not. The only hope is that Akers came out early because of injury. We have to get the ground game going to have a shot in this one.

    I haven't read any updates but he walked off on his power so it might not be that bad. Even if he's limited he'll still have his way with our OL. All I could think of watching the Bears last night is how scared Kirk is going to look when the Bears D comes at him in attack mode. Our defense dominating is our best chance. I can't see us sustaining too many long drives.
