    If he gets a run at you, he will level you.

    I think he takes plays off, he just doesn't state the fact out loud.
    He doesn't give it his all, all the time.
    That's a better way to put the inconsistency I've seen.

    Re: cedric griffin.......

    He makes more good plays than he does bad. And makes some really tough tackles occasionally. He does have mental lapses, but all first year starters do, see TJ.

    If you put a guy like DRC out there he is going to miss a lot more tackles.

    We're set at CB.

    i was rewatching a few games from last season and i must say cedric is horrific at tackling. there was one play that he didnt even try to attempt a tackle, instead he just tried to push the receiver over, which was half hearted. my father-in-law and i could not stop laughing at him. i think we need another option than him.......
    I've been saying that for two years, but everyone else was harping on Smoot & didn't have time to notice or even bother to look.

    He did play better last year & he is still young & learning, but tackling is one of the first things you learn.

    I'm not a big fan of Griffin either.
    I grew tired of his 10 yard cushions - even on 3rd and short plays.
    His bad tackling as well as his horrible vision (when he is matched up 1on1 he does a horrible job at seeing the ball).
    I still remember how he was constantly picked on against the Jets.

    Personally I think he should be at safety.
    He is a very good ball hawk when he is allowed to freelance.

    Those 10 yard cushions are part of the scheme. Smoot & Winfield did it as well, but Smoot was the only one ever to get chastised for it.

    Why was this thread about a current Vikings player, who is still on the active roster, moved from the Vikings Fan forum where it belonged to the offseason FA/Draft forum?

    Re: cedric griffin.......

    people don't realise at times during our D the DB's are supposed to give the WR some cushions to allow the underneath stuff but nothing more than that.
    The problem, however, is our CB's were young & inexperienced
