    MANKATO, Minn. — The best Vikings player to not make the Pro Bowl last season is headed home, back to his old Maryland stomping grounds....

    If Erin could play the level of play like Farewell did on special teams why not?

    I'm saying, I just hope EJ will have the kind of season he had this year and he'll get more recognition..

    Re: Vikings believe E.J. Henderson is a Pro Bowl linebacker

    I still think the Pro-bowl is a scam and a waste of time these days.
    Anyways.....

    "I'm still scratching my head, wondering why he didn't make it last year," Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said. "Guys around the league ask me about him, other coaches, and I know players talk about him. So he's on people's radar. If he puts together another year like last year, I don't see any reason why he wouldn't make it."
    My feeling is that the only people voted are the guys who go every year (some don't deserve it) and guys who had a good season the year before.
    My guess is EJ will make a trip to HI this year.

    "I didn't have any picks, so obviously I need to work on it," Henderson said. "Being that we play Cover 2 so much, the Mike (middle) linebacker is a big part of the package. I just tried some different techniques in our offseason practices, trying to be a little slower on my drops so I won't be so deep downfield."
    I never noticed this.
    Anyone else see him gtting to deep?
    Very interesting thought though. :

    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    He has been flat-out overlooked, He's played pretty well the past few seasons. He get over a 100 tackles again this year. He should be in there no doubt in my mind.

    EJ got robbed last year! I was re-watching my games on tape from last season and he was flying all over the field damn near every game making plays. Looking back at those games I really don't see how he wasn't on the team. Hopefully he has another great year and will be there this time!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    You guys are right, and you are right that E.J. is underrated.

    I cannot argue against that.

    But on the other hand, I want a ring, I don't want a Pro Bowl. This should be about the team, not about the individual.

    EJ is in the top 5 MLBs and top 5 Hard Hitters imo.

    Once he got everything worked out mentally and moved into the middle, we were able to see the athletic ability he really has.

    EJ had 3.5 more sacks, and 10 more tackles than Lofa, but Lofa gets in because he had 4 INT's.
    Willis got in because of his tackles. Though small, EJ did beat in him sacks and forced fumbles. But of course they would go for the DROY. Still, I think EJ should have gotten in instead of Lofa.
