    For those who didn't see him play, he truly was a special player and more than deserving. Congrats to Matt Blair.

    Most deserving

    It will be a prime time game as well, so hopefully the NFL Network will do a pregame feature on him. If for no other reason than the blocked kicks, the current generation of fans needs to learn about this underheralded player.
    SKOL VIKINGS!
