    lmao!

    Henderson is considered one of the top cover linebackers in the game.
    What Henderson is he watching?

    Well EJ is a good LB so why the surprise ?
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Good news, and EJ still has plenty of time to get stronger before camp begins. I hope he regains his form as the "Beast" bringing the wood.

    If I were to think of something positive to say about Henderson, it wouldn't be about his coverage skills. He's great against the run, tracking down the ballcarrier and making the play, but his weakness is coverage.

    I like the quote by the saints fan at the bottom.

    "Henderson will be ready to get rocked by the Saints offense. They will put that "top cover linebacker" label to the test. He couldn't even cover a dehydrated Shockey.

    Maybe he'll do another leg trick like he did against the cardinals, that was a badass move like I've never seen before. He must've spend a lot of time practicing that maneuver. He should've saved it for the halftime stunt show though, really sweet performance."

    Wow.

    I like the fact this guy has no idea what he's talking about.

    1) It's not like Shockey had a great game against the Vikings.
    2) Did he know that EJ didn't play that game?

    I love how these NO fans think they are the best team that ever played the game. Their franchise has 5 total playoff wins in 43 years.

    I can agree with that. Not that E.J.'s coverage skills are poor, it's just not his strong point. It'll still be a huge boost to the defense, the sooner he's back to full strength.

    And we kicked their fucking ass in the NFCCG. We just beat ourselves even worse.


    And as far as Henderson goes... there's not many guys who have to play the coverage role he does. MLB in the cover 2 is a serious cover position, and he does it well. Not spectacular, but better than most could. It's not wrong to call him "one of the best."

    God I can't stand Saints fans.

    "Go saints!!! We raped the vikings!!! With drew brees and reggie bush... and uhhh, the other players... whoever they are"

    pathetic
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.
