Schadenfreude: It's the German word for the pleasure we derive from the misfortune of others. Brett Favre is 22-10 against the Bears lifetime. Brett Favre owns most of the quarterback records for Soldier Field, including most passing yards, most completions, most starts, and most touchdowns...So we can be forgiven, perhaps, if we indulge in a bit of schadenfreude over some of Brett (and the rest of the Vikings) recent woes. To recount some of Favre's most recent troubles, read here and here.
The Vikings have lost their last eight road games, and they're more than a little banged-up, particularly at the wide receiver position. Sidney Rice, is still not activated, Percy Harvin and Bernard Berrian are both game-time decisions with Harvin still feeling the effects of ankle and migraine problems, and former Bear, Berrian nursing his groin.
And then, there's Brad Childress. You can read farther down this StoryStream for accounts of the Vikings head coach, and his recent run-ins with....well, everyone.
Weather: The current forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies, with a high in the mid 40's. Winds from the WSW at 13 mph.
