Despite their team being one of the worst in the NFL this season, fans of the Chicago Bears have been obsessed with trying to troll Minnesota Vikings recently.
Back in Week 5, the Minnesota Vikings were able to hold off Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears thanks to a last-minute fumble by former Bears receiver Ihmir Smith-Marsette that was forced by Vikings cornerback Cameron Dantzler.
Since that matchup inside U.S. Bank Stadium, Minnesota has won four of their last five games, and they are currently sitting with an 8-2 record. Meanwhile, Fields and Chicago have struggled mightily since their trip to the Twin Cities, with just one win in their last six matchups.
The Bears currently have a 3-8 record and they are in sole possession of last place in the NFC North. Since their favorite team’s 2022 season is basically over already, Chicago fans have turned their attention to trying to troll Vikings fans.
Chicago Bears fans are embarrassing themselves with attempts to troll Minnesota Vikings fans
For whatever reason, Bears fans have become increasingly obsessed with trying to troll Minnesota’s fan base during the last few weeks.
Maybe it’s because Chicago actually has a promising young quarterback that the franchise hasn’t ruined yet, or maybe they need something to distract them from the fact that the Detroit Lions currently have a brighter future than the Bears?
Who knows, but let’s take a look at some of these recent laughable troll attempts by Chicago fans.
Really great burn here. Let’s compare a running quarterback to a non-running quarterback. Fields has seven rushing touchdowns this season compared to two from Kirk Cousins.
Fun fact though, Cousins has scored a rushing touchdown on 20 percent of his carries this year, while Fields has only scored a rushing touchdown on 5.7 percent of his carries this season.
Fran Tarkenton won the NFL MVP award in 1975. MVP is typically an award that is given to players that are good. Tarkenton is one of three former Vikings quarterbacks that have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
It’s funny how quarterback wins are never a stat for the quarterback whose team doesn’t win. When Minnesota struggled in 2020 and 2021 with Cousins under center, quarterback wins were a stat, just like they still are this season.
Quarterbacks touch the ball on almost every offensive play in a game, meaning that they are likely going to have the largest impact on whether a team wins or loses.
You get the idea, but here are a few more recent trolling attempts from Chicago fans.
This last one wasn’t directly targeted at the Vikings, but it’s just plain hilarious.
The “King of the North” has yet to lead the Bears to a win over any of the three teams in the NFC North this season, and he’s 1-6 in his career against the Vikings, Lions, and Green Bay Packers.
Fields has plenty of potential, no one is really arguing against that, and he’s made an impressive amount of progress this year. But maybe Chicago fans should consider not making themselves look foolish until their current quarterback actually leads the team to a division title?
It’s just a suggestion.
