    Sharper NFC defensive player of the week!

    Here it is:

    Sharper Wins NFC Honor
    By Viking Update Staff

    Date: Nov 16, 2005

    It was hardly a surprise, but now it’s official. Vikings safety Darren Sharper is the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

    The Vikings declared Darren Sharper a playmaker when they signed him as an unrestricted free agent following his release from the rival Green Bay Packers in March.

    Sharper has lived up to that billing this season, and his three interceptions of New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning on Sunday has earned Sharper the NFC Defensive Player of the Week honor. It was his first three-interception game, and his 92-yard interception return for a touchdown was the second interception he has returned for a touchdown this season. In the season opener, he picked off Tampa Bay QB Brian Griese and returned it 88 yards for a TD.

    Sharper leads the NFL with 241 interception return yards this season, more than double his nearest competition (Indianapolis’ Cato June with 115). Sharper needs only two more interception return yards this season to eclipse the franchise record currently held by Jimmy Hitchcock (1998).

    It’s the first time in Sharper’s career that he has earned the honor. Defensive lineman Kevin Williams was the last Viking to win the award for his performance against Jacksonville on Nov. 28, 2004.

    Way to go Sharper! Well deserved.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    That's a great way to set up a meeting with your old team on Monday Night!! Wouldn't it be great to see him run another back at Lambeau?!?!

    I admit, Sharper played great that game, still though, you won't be hearing many packer fans complaining about letting him go. Sharper has good talent, but the problem with him is his big mouth, thats why I never liked the guy

    and I also won't forget the 2 playoff games where he was part of the blame. The 98-99 wild card game against the Niners when TO got the game winning TD, and of course, the 4th and 26 play against Philly

    3 INT's and 1 TD and he's just the NFC defensive player of the week? Who was it in the AFC who did better? Or is there not an NFL Defensive Player of the Week award?

    BBQ Platypus,
