    i wouldn't put money on that bet.
    It would be nice yes, but there are a lot of solid players out there, and some often get over looked if they're not known well enough to get the neccesary votes
    the same could have been said about ej henderson.
    untill this year he was really never a huge force out there.
    no reason for lots of people who don't follow the vikings to know who he is.
    but this year he really stepped it out and people are taking notice

    I would not bet that both EJ and Greenway go to the Pro Bowl next year.
    The NFC has some very good backers and getting 2 from the same team rarely happens.
    I believe both EJ and Greenway will go to pro bowls in their careers but I wouldn't bet in the same year.
    Also, EJ was a pretty big force last year in this Defense that was #1 against the run and was first in Team Tackles and twelfth in the NFL in tackles with 109.

    I don't care if they ever make the Pro Bowl. I only care that they make the Super Bowl.

    And bring the trophy home.


    Go Vikings!

    Re: Vikings Greenway is tearing it up

    I think if Henderson adds a few pass defense stats to his name next season, he's a pro bowler for sure.

    IMO he is right now. He's having the best overall season of any linebacker in the NFC.

    98 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries.

    He has more tackles of every sack leader ahead of him.

    He's playing great.

    I love Henderson's play this year.
    However, I wouldn't say he's been the best LB in the NFC this year.
    Patrick Willis comes to mind right off the bat.
    Ernie Sims and London Fletcher are there as well.
    Then there are Johnathan Beason and Nick Barnett.
    I'd say he's having a solid year and I would even say Pro Bowl calibur year.
    But I don't think he's the best in the NFC.

    Greenway is playing solid

    Not flashy.. Not great.. But solid

    Hopefully he keeps on maturing and growing into a better player!

    I like the strides he is making.. He is basically a rookie this year

    I'm saying best overall, tackles, sacks, fumbles, coverage. All Willis and Sims do is make tackles... and on their terrible defenses someone has to lol. Fletcher is having a great year as well. 112 sacks and 3 ints.

    That'd be pretty wild - breaking the sack record for every single game he plays in. :P

    other words would also include consistent, and dependable.

    greenway is being extremelly dependable, and he will make the play. the stand out plays include the fumble recoveries, and int's.. if he gets some more of those, he can be in the pro bowl.. until then, he's just another dependable player (kind of like a pat williams idea, always plays well, never got the pro-bowl).

    i love greenway. i knew we needed some LB help last year, and i loved what he did at college. i was bummed when he got hurt.

    this year he's playing like the number one pick he needs to be
    i m better than you, so just give up...
