    Re: Why are Vikings fans so down on Brian Russell

    Brian Russell was constantly out of position in coverage and Chavous had to try and make up for that and he got burnt as a result as well. Also football is a game of angles and Russell always took bad angles toward the ball and was out of place to make a tackle. You can think what you want but that was out of the mouth of Matt Birk on the Superstars morning show on KFAN.

    Matt Birk the center on offense was commenting on Russels play at saftey?

    Yeah, I take what he has to say with a grain of salt.

    Re: Why are Vikings fans so down on Brian Russell

    I'm kind of bummed that we let Russell go. Sharper is going to do the exact same things wrong that Russell did and he is older and doesn't hit as hard! I would have rather had Russell than Sharper. Russell busted his @ss to earn a starting spot and you know he will always work hard! Sharper is a pu$$y!

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

    Russel played one really good season with us, he played his position hard, I do beleive that Sharper is an upgrade though, Vetaran leadership, Smart Player (reads qb's very well), And though he can be a sloppy tackeler, so are alot of free safety's. The Vikes didn't sign him to be a tackling machine. He fill's a huge roll in our defense as a great coverage guy. Here's to Sharper playing with the Vikes for a few great years to come, wherafter, he will hand the reigns to Dustin Fox.

    Fox is gonna be the talk of the league when he's playing FS. He's gonna play foward, so its like a 4-4 formation with one safty. He'll be the other MLB and he'll just jump over the linemen and sack the QB.
