    That is something that does concern me about him as well as Musgrave and some of the other positional coaches, not sure if there is much of this going on the bench but its something that I haven't seen on sideline shots of our bench.

    The guy is supposed to be a defensive specialist... in terms of points given up, our defense was ranked 31st last year and 18th this year
    Well you just need to look at all the talent he's loaded the offense with to see why defense hasn't....oh yeah that isn't happening. I'd thought since the guy has a background as a player in the secondary we'd be stronger or have something better there and with Singletary (he can rant and I don't want him as our HC) around our linebackers would be more of a strength other than Greenway. At times I feel like our bend don't break defense is equal to the Chillers KAO and we end up letting teams drive the field and wear this guys out for the later stages of the game and we really lack the ability to gain turnovers consistly over the season (unlike the offense)

    Before Erin got hurt, he was leading the league in tackles. Brinkley, although physically limited, is playing fairly well. Erin is on pace for 100 tackles, Brinkley for 104. No, nothing special, but considering both of these guys were late round picks/undrafted, that's not a bad place to be.

    Since KFAN fired Mike Morris maybe the Vikings can bring him in to coach the team.

    That was a bit sarcastic but KFAN pizzed me off when they canned him but kept Siniken,PA, Barriero and Common. God dahm that was as stupid and the Vikings firing the one position coach last year who actually had a unit that performed well enough to almost break an NFL record. (Well, unless you count the record the secondary set last year for futility by going longer without and INT than any team in history) but I digress. WTF were they thinking when they fired the only guy ib the lineup who remotely had a clue about football. Dumfuxs.

    I never seen Henderson leading the league in tackles. Is that fabricated? I have seen Greenway leading the league in tackles for most of the season. One thing I have seen Henderson do this year is get burned by tight ends running down field, just like his brother did for years. I honestly don't want to see a middle linebacker with the name Henderson on this team ever again.

    C'mon. You've been here on PP.O how long? It only takes 1 good play in a preseason game & you become a "Beast".
