    i love griffin, he was a 2nd round steal!! i hope he has a long and productive career with the vikings. once he fully develops he has the talent to be one of the NFLs top CBs.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    With so many big defensive names out there....ie, Urlacker, Jason Taylor, etc...
    I am a bit surprised by the selection of a player that nobody in the NFL has ever heard of.
    It is a well deserved honor...hopefully just the first of many more to come in his bright future!
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    i was impresses at how well he was covering williams last week. thats why furrey got so many receptions. if you watch some tape, you will see cedric smothering williams on most plays.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    He's in the AFC.


    Besides, it shouldn't be that surprising. Look at these stats for the Detroit game:

    Griffin finished with 3 tackles, an interception, a fumble recovery, a forced fumble and 2 passes defensed for the game.

    DUHHHHHHH.....ok, so I am a bit slow....hahahaha
    But you get the point....many more big names out there...usually the little guys get over looked JUST because of name recognition and/or the market a team plays in!

    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.
