    Re: Vikings: Greenway going great again

    Greenways coverage skills concern me and I have seen him out of position a few times. He is also missed a few tackles. I like him but there is much room for improvement.

    I would not be shocked if Greenway made the probowl this year.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Re: Vikings: Greenway going great again

    Greenway is going to be a solid dependable guy for the Vikes this year.

    He will make a run at the pro-bowl.

    And will solidify our D for years to come. I love Greenway. He is alert, and always trying to make a play.
    i m better than you, so just give up...

    Re: Vikings: Greenway going great again

    Greeny had a pretty good year last year and should improve. I'm excited to see what he brings to the table. I'm sure it will be good

    I like him alot, however, a Pro-bowl nomination is a stretch IMHO.


    One thing to consider is that because the whole Pro-bowl is a sham based on popularity (what you've done in the past) it will take him at least 2 years to break into the good ole boy network.

    True, for the most part.
    But, it only took Patrick Willis about 8 games, same for Adrian Peterson and Joe Thomas last year.
    If Greenway plays at that level, he has a shot.


    Greenway still overruns plays, and gets beat in the passing game...he can certainly improve, but, the kid is gonna have a big year IMO.
    That said, this linebacking crew should all be salivating, given the 3 Pro-Bowlers in front of them making their jobs much easier.
    The biggest benefactors of the Jared Allen acquisition will be Kevin Williams and the linebackers, especially EJ Henderson.

    Re: Vikings: Greenway going great again

    I've seen some improvement in his coverage skills...there's been a few plays each game where he sees the play a second before it happens, and gets a good run at the reciever for the big hit and tackle, but if he'd seen it a second sooner, he could have stepped in front of it and took it home!

    Add Allen to his growing experience, and we should (hopefully) see some good seasons from all three LBs!!
    I know Leber isn't getting all the tackles the other two are, but he isn't on the field as much either.
    Check out his two year stats!

    I think how the press handled AD, Willis and Joe last year along with thier play help vault them up in the Good Ole Boy network.
    Guys like EJ and Chad won't get much play from them until they do it for a couple of years.

    By the way,
    excellent post my friend.

    I need to revisit your status on the ole spread sheet.
    ;D

    Thanks, working hard for a moniker, a tag, a handle.
    Yours is the best, and, well deserved!
