The Bears!!!  What is happening?

Chester Taylor decided that the Chicago Bears was a better home for the 31 year old.  Was it a smart decision?  The correct answer is NO!  When you are 31 years old, ( that's pretty old for a running back, don't ya think???) a 3 rd down running back is the perfect spot.

Now the Chicago Bears have two fairly good backs, but not one great back.  Chester had some huge recieving yards and one of his best seasons with the Vikings.  Why would he leave?  Anyone can say that he was a perfect combination with Adrian Peterson and a very effective 3rd down back.

Many Vikes fan are thinking, "oh big deal we still got Peterson."  Well that isn't exactly true. Yes, Peterson is a legend in the making,  but he can't be there all the plays, and that is where Chester Taylor came in.  Chester is a reliable back and the vikings needed that, I personally think the vikings are gonna be hurting unless they find someone to replace the 5-11, 213 pound back.  But the vikings have surprised me before!!!
