That toughness, will, and want to play like a LB at CB at his size is remarkable IMO. Winfield for Hall Of Fame, thats how I will rember him, the best part is, its not yet over but how many more years will he want to play...


    Deion was actually a pretty solid tackler for a corner.. Nothing special but he he was good

    Winny is great at tackling yes I agree.. But that's the only great thing he has

    Winny can't sniff Deions Jock.. No corner can

    Sorry you are just a little bias.. Just a tint of purple in your shades

    Winfield is the MAN. He is so fricking underrated in this league. Great hitting and tackling corner.

    When I watch a Vikings game, it is like there are two guys out there with 26 on their jersey. The guy is EVERYWHERE. He is in on every play, it seems like.

    Re: Winfield having big year for Vikings

    Winfieild has the perfect combination of leadership, ability and performance.
    Add on his immense desire and heart, and, I'm certain Jim Marshall would respect him...clearly the most "Viking Like" player on our Team now.
    Some great performances this year...gotta stay healthy, keep us afloat AW.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    Re: Winfield having big year for Vikings

    Is it just me or does it appear that Winfield is one of the few Vikings on the field that looks excited & enthusiastic to be playing out there & having fun doing so?

    Too many of them just don't look pumped up for the game.
