Heart Palpitations: Bears 25 Vikings 20


14-0 lead at halftime? Oh, yeah. I was thinking the same thing too. They were going to somehow blow it. Well, it was looking like we were watching the same movie. Way too close for comfort towards the end.

Cody Parkey – He goes up first in the recap. What a bounce back. He was nails on the three field goals. Outstanding performance and well-deserved.

Defense – They were outstanding for the first three quarters. If it weren’t for turnovers by Trubisky and Cohen, those first six points aren’t even allowed. On the first touchdown by the Vikings, penalties that had no business being called continued the drive and the two-point conversion following. I was still pissed about the last touchdown, but nothing can be done now.

Mitchell Trubisky – Okay, enough of these Cutler-esque passes into triple-coverage. My heart can’t take this shit and my throat is sore from screaming at the TV. Enough. Other than that, I love his mobility to continue drives. The last drive (which resulted in a field goal), he completed a big pass for a first down.

Matt Nagy – I still felt some of the play-calling by him was very questionable. On the third down that lead to Parkey’s last field goal, he called a pass play that ended up incomplete. They could have easily ran it and tried to get the first down or at the very least, make the Vikings burn their last timeout.

A quick turnaround awaits with the Lions this Thursday. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. Before leaving your comments in the thread, I’ll leave it at this:

    Good morning, y’all. Glass half empty time:

    1) Once again, the offense going bye-bye in the second half. Punt-fumble-INT-punt. Defense and special teams TDs are not always gonna happen folks.

    2) The Bears defense is seriously susceptible to the no-huddle. The Vikes put up 14 points in the fourth quarter on combined 22 plays and 150 yards (guesstimates).

    All that being said, it was worth a late Sunday bedtime to watch this game. Here’s hoping for a Thanksgiving win in Detroit to go with my deep fried turkey legs (menu pending and God willing).

    The defense is concerning going down the stretch. They have been grasping for air most of the games this year in the second half. I don’t why Fangio decides to go “prevent” late instead of sticking to what has just worked before.

    Trubisky is hurt as well with a shoulder injury. He is questionable for Thursday. They should try to start Daniel to give Trubisky a break for one game.

    Trubisky is not playing tomorrow. Probably won’t affect the game too much. Should still kick their asses.

    I’m going to be cautious in my optimism with Daniel starting. But if Nagy can not be an idiot and just run the damn ball when his team is up two touchdowns instead of calling pass plays, I think all will be fine. Howard, Cohen and Mizzell should all get plenty of carries.

    Jim Hickey resigned as Cubs pitching coach for “personal reasons.” I wonder what’s going on there. One year and the guy quits? Something more to this story I fear.
