Minnesota Vikings: Expect blizzard of flags in Chicago


The Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears may have to play Sunday’s game in the middle of a blizzard…of flags.

The officiating crew for Bears-Vikings has been revealed and it’s the crew headed up by John Hussey.

According to information passed along by ESPN’s Kevin Seifert, Hussey’s crew loves tossing their laundry on the grass more than any other group.

Hussey’s crew calls even more flags than the one led by Jerome Boger. And we know how awful Boger’s crew is.

Hopefully Hussey’s crew at least understands the rules about holding in the end zone.

With the Vikings facing the NFL’s most penalty-happy crew, it seems almost a 100% certainty that Xavier Rhodes is going to get called for at least one pass interference and/or holding.

These guys like tossing yellow and Rhodes just can’t keep his hands off receivers. Sounds like a perfect storm.

But remember fans, if the refs do toss a bunch of flags in this game and they’re almost all on the Vikings, it’s not the result of refs trying to torpedo the purple.

Just like the Bears would never deliberately shut off the game clock late in the fourth with Teddy Bridgewater trying to lead the Vikings to a come back.

There are no conspiracies.
