Defensive end Erasmus James will be active for the Vikings today for the first time this season.

Brooks Bollinger will be the inactive third quarterback.

Inactive are: cornerback Ronyell Whitaker, running back Mewelde Moore, tight end Garrett Mills, guard Brian Daniels, offensive tackle Chase Johnson, wide receiver Aundrae Allison and defensive end Jayme Mitchell.

For the Bears, Anthony Adams will start at nose tackle for Darwin Walker and Danieal Manning at right cornerback for Nathan Vasher, with Brandon McGowan opening at Manning's free safety spot.

Also inactive for the Bears are: quarterback Kyle Orton, fullback Lousaka Polite, safety Josh Gattis, linebacker Darrell McClover, offensive lineman Josh Beekman and wide receiver Mike Hass.

Adrian Peterson is incredible! The Vikings play calling, is embarassing.

Childress, you are a moron... I hate you!

I actually thought the play-calling improved a lot. I had a huge problem with the last third down of the first drive, I believe it was 3rd and 9 at about the Chicago 40. We threw an incomplete pass that lead to a punt, when a draw could have netted five yards and lead to a FG try.

But, other than that instance, I liked the play-calling. There were a couple of passes in the 4th quarter that could have been runs, but AD and Taylor got a lot of carries.

The glaring problem this week was that we do not have NFL caliber receivers. Rice might get there, but Ferguson showed the body control of a high school guard and Williamson continues to have questionable ball skills and/or remain legally blind.
