    Vikings: Pat Williams' games: football, cars

    [size=13pt]Vikings: Pat Williams? games: football, cars[/size]

    Pat Williams, the Vikings' free-spirited Pro Bowl nose tackle, is a heavyweight on the field and in the automotive-customizing business.

    When a ferocious, butt-kickin' beast who can dominate the storm that is an NFL line of scrimmage talks, we don't interrupt.

    On spending his NFL riches wisely:

    "I see a lot of guys waste their money, and then have nothing when they leave the game. I'm on a budget. I have a lawyer who handles my money. All I get is $5,000 a month to spend. If I ask for more, he won't give it to me. That's why I pay him, so he'll say no when I ask for more money. I'll ask. He'll say, 'No, you don't need it.' And I say, 'OK, bye.' "
    On Vikings second-year coach Brad Childress:

    "Last year, he just kind of got in the water. ... I think he's the guy who can turn it around for us. I talk to him all the time. He walks around and talks to the players a lot. He didn't do that last year. He wasn't down in that locker room talking to the players last year. Now, he's more into the players. He's changed. ... Everybody's more comfortable with him now. Last year, you knew him, but you didn't know him."
    I really enjoyed reading this article. I don't understand why the reporters doesn't make more stories like this. Just go talk to the players, I want to hear what they have to say about all and nothing.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    We need to get this guy signed to an extension.
    He may very well start to wear down in the coming years but i think he makes up for it with his leadership and is attitude.
    It's nice to see an article about something other than someone breaking the law.

    I too would like too see more articles about the players and what they are up to besides football especially during the offseason when all we hear about is people getting into trouble.

    gotta luv Phat Pat!!

    i don't think they guy can do anything small..

    i agree we need to lock him up for another few years, and as long as he's willing even make him a line coach when he's done.. i'm sure there will be lots of D linemen wishing to model after his abilities.
