    Center Of Attention - E.J. Henderson

    http://www.vikings.E.J. Hendersoncom/news_detail_objectname_henderson53107.html

    Heading into the 2006 season, the Vikings linebacker corps was a frequent target for football critics and observers. Some were skeptical of E.J. Henderson's prospects playing on the weak side, others wondered if Napoleon Harris could anchor the middle for an entire season and many were unaware of Ben Leber's abilities on the strong side.

    As it turned out, the unit out-performed expectations and helped the defense rank eighth overall and tops in the league against the run. Leber was a pillar all season, Harris anchored the unit and played well, and Henderson had a career season with 109 tackles, a team high. In fact, the Vikings front office was so pleased with his play that they signed him to a long-term contract extension during the season.

    Less than a year later, Henderson is again the center of attention heading into the season. He is also in the center of the Vikings linebacker corps, again.

    I sure hope that EJ can handle the Middle and organize the defense.
    He had a stellar year last year.
    However the T-2 scheme generally allows for the weak side linebacker to produce good numbers.
    Case in point: Lance Briggs.
    He wants a big payday, but the Bears have yet to give him one.
    Maybe because they believe they can plug in another LB to be just as successful if he walks.

    Everything just fit together for the linbackers and its good to have them all wrapped up.
    The three starters are all under contract till 2011.

    All the kids my age pee their pants, it's the coolest.
