    Cedric Griffin making mark as Vikings starter - Smashing success

    Posted on Sat, Dec. 02, 2006

    [size=13pt]A journey to manhood[/size]

    The Vikings' Cedric Griffin learned about life from a caring father figure and a strong-willed mother's tattoo — 'A man is only as good as his word' — and now is applying those lessons.

    Very good article singer and thanks for posting it!

    It gave good insight into Cedric and how he grew up, I am really impressed with him and hope that he is a Viking for a long time.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Agree, nice article.
    Nice to have a peak into his past, the man is hungry to succeed...let him chomp on some bear meat this weekend.

    Two good articles, if he carries on like this and apllies himself as he says then we will have a good solid corner for years to come.

    Last week, Vikings defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin said with admiration that Griffin is "playing violently."
    I like that, that's the way they should all play.
    Hopefully he doesn't lose that.

    now hopefully we can cut smooth in the offseason and save a buck or two on that huge contract he is getting. Good luck being a the dime corner for the rest of your future fast freddie.

    Good articles....but Roy Williams is an idiot if he thinks that Griff is one of the top three CBs in the game today...he's at least number 4, since Winfield is better than him!

    Cool articles, he is on his path to becoming a great football player, and it seems he is already a good man. What more can you ask for?
