Move Hurts Vikings


This trade officially gives the Bears their first true franchise quarterback in the last two or three decades. In addition to adding Orlando Pace on the offensive line, the Bears have filled almost all of their needs and have positioned themselves to compete for a chance at making the Super Bowl. With a good defense in Chicago, Cutler could be capable of leading Chicago to the NFC North title within his first year in the organization.

I think that this move also hurts the Minnesota Vikings. Sage Rosenfels or Tarvaris Jackson will now have to go up against Jay Cutler, Aaron Rodgers, and likely Matthew Stafford in six games over the course of the next potential 5+ years. Minnesota has an aging roster and the fans are going to call for a new head coach if Brad Childress doesn't reach the playoffs this year. The Vikings are going to be skating on thin ice this season.

Now, if "Da Bears" sign Gus Frerotte as their backup...they will clean the Vikings clock! After the deplorable way that Childers treated Frerotte, after he got them into the playoffs, whatever happens to that bunch of bums...they deserve! Go Bears!
