    "It's purely up to him when he comes back. There's no timetable. I told him yesterday, he needs to go through the grieving process properly. Don't be worrying about football. Just do whatever he needs to do away from football. His mom was very, very close to him."
    So... a little different than the way that Childress would have handled it...

    oh no they still aren't going to pay him but he can take the time off......

    It hard to say who made the call over the pay check (coach, director of player personel, Mark Wilf or however the quadrilateral of power worked) what was granted in the past but to make sure it doesn't happen again is important and to offer support. Mistakes happen but not learning from them just makes you look like the Matt Millen run Lions.

    Prayers to Everson and family

    Where did it say anything about him getting paid or not? You lost me here. From everything I saw, the Vikings organization has handled it well.

    Sorry I was talking about the last time someone left for a funeral and didn't get paid (Troy Williamson was docked a game check) when things were handled poorly. But now it is looking like the Vikings org is handling things better.

    Wow, such sad news. My thoughts are with Everson and the entire Griffen family.

    I can't imagine receiving unexpected news like that...
