    Vikings: Criticism turned into motivation

    [size=13pt]Vikings: Criticism turned into motivation[/size]

    Vikings coaches heard Antoine Winfield's candid words, then made sure the team listened to him, too.

    Does this mean they won't throw the fade on 4th and 7?
    I've been a Viking fan since I was just out of diapers, hopefully we get Super Bowl win before I go back in 'em.

    I have a feeling the Vikings are going to pound the Packers into submission.
    This will be fun.

    ----------------------

    ...Winfield's speech, as well as his criticism, seemed well-received at Winter Park. Quarterback Brad Johnson jokingly referred to him as "E.F. Hutton" -- as in, "When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen"...
    ...He disputed Winfield's contention that he calls running plays on "every" first down; actually, Childress said, the Vikings have passed on 52 percent of their first downs during the past four games. But otherwise, Childress said: "It's not like he's missing something. "I understand his frustration," Childress added. "He's a great competitor. He's a guy that puts it out there each and every week of the season. He has for a long period of time whether it's Buffalo or here, and he's frustrated. He's an eight-year pro ... who probably is not going to play another eight years. He wants to win now. And so, I feel [for] him."...

    Anyone think that this is what the doctor ordered?
    The Vikes need the veteran leadership.
    Now let's see how it goes.

    Lets see if Winfield calling out the players and the coaches makes a difference on Sunday!
    Maybe it is just what the team needed, or maybe it makes no difference.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I am glad that they listened, now I hope they respond on offense.. Winfield is not only the defensive leader, he is a team leader.. He hardly ever talks smack, and when he does, he backs it up.. He is a class act, and presents himself very well.. He knows that the defense is one of the ebst in the league, now he wants the offense to follow suit.. If the offense were to perform like the defense, every team should worry about the Vikings.. I have doubts with Brad Johnson at the helm, but I hope he proves me wrong..
