    Hasn't played a single down for the Vikings.

    And I think Farwell is a FINE primary backup, for both EJ and Leber.

    Well, he did win Defensive Player of the Year in the Big 12 his senior year. I'm excited to see what he can do at the pro level.

    LB from Oklahoma. Picked him up in the 6th round of last year's draft. He was a steal.

    Comeon my friend.
    He doesn't have to actually play football in the NFL to gauge his athletisism does he?
    If that is the case, how do you know Farwell is a FINE primary backup.
    When has he ever done it?

    Truth be told, the attributes Farwell has with respect to his value as a ST'er take away from his value as a everydown LB.

    Small and fast won't help him shed 330ish lb G's in running situations my friend.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    LOL, that doesn't equate to a beast though my friend.
    He needs to strap it on in the NFL I guess.
    ;D

    I've been impressed when Farwell has played LB - albeit in the pre-season.

    There are TONS of impressive college guys who can't play a lick in the NFL.
    I think it's a tad early to call Rufus Alexander a "beast".

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I worry about his size. He was listed at 6'1" 228 lbs and probably has gained some weight since then, however, he would still be in the Farwell/Ciuriciu range.
    Seems the smaller LB's usually only elevate to ST's status of late as the OL get bigger and faster.

    50 Vinny Ciurciu LB 27 6-0 235 5 Boston College
    59 Heath Farwell LB 26 6-0 235 3 San Diego State
    52 Chad Greenway LB 25 6-2 242 2 Iowa
    56 E.J. Henderson LB 27 6-1 245 5 Maryland

    58 David Herron Jr. LB 23 6-1 239 R Michigan State
    51 Ben Leber LB 29 6-3 244 6 Kansas State
    54 Dontarrious Thomas LB 27 6-2 241 4 Auburn

    Is he the Italian kid with the slick hair and waxed eyebrows? If it is we should let him go.
    I think your refering to our pal Vinny Ciuriciu.
