    Very nice, I love to see guys using their notoriety for good causes, realizing that they have been given a great gift and to use it wisely by helping those in need...especially if it's for kids.

    Is it me, or are we seeing more and more of this with our current Viking players?

    I can't believe how bad of an example this guy is, no wonder so many fans want to see him replaced.

    No one has said his personality is an issue, but his play has declined a bit.

    Doing charity doesn't make him a pro-bowler.

    Its not that we want to see him replaced, but rather, have started to accept the fact that his time as a Viking is drawing to a close.

    Its hard to accept, especially with players that have been long term fixtures on the team such as Matt, but at some point thier play declines.

    The ones of us that can see the writing on the wall are just speculating on who his replacement will be and how soon it will happen.

    We all know it, but some want it to happen a lot sooner than others think it will happen.
