    Vikings' raging bull rusher needs to control his temper

    I don't know how Singer missed this one, but I searched for the article link and didn't find it.

    [size=12pt]Vikings' raging bull rusher needs to control his temper[/size]
    Defensive end Ray Edwards plays angry, which is good as long as he keeps that anger simmering and doesn't let it boil over.

    MANKATO - A few players were pushing and shoving Saturday night when, suddenly but predictably, a certain Vikings hothead arrived on the scene, throwing haymakers and landing most of them. Ray Edwards, central to the team's hopes for an improved pass rush, had just exploded with enough aggression to get himself ejected from a regular-season game.

    Luckily for the Vikings, it was only a glorified practice against Kansas City. In one night, however, Edwards displayed his tremendous upside as a pass rusher as well as the short fuse that could extinguish the Vikings pass rush this season.

    I don't recall hearing about how much of a psycho this guy is when we drafted him.
    Oh well, glad he's on OUR team.
    Hopefully he can step up and fill a void.

    Maybe they need to hire Kyle Turley to lead the team in anger management.

    The talk at the time was that he slipped to the fourth round because of problems he had with the Purdue coaching staff.
    Perhaps we're seeing some of what those problems were now.
    I dunno - I don't care if he fights all day long, as long as it doesn't cost the Vikings 15 yards.

    Wasn't Kyle involved in this squirmish?

    That says it all, Kyle pushes buttons very well.
    LOL!

    The practice ended with Tyson ... er, Edwards ... throwing multiple punches at offensive lineman Kyle Turley. It was one of several fights Edwards, who at 22 is younger than many Vikings rookies, has found since arriving last season.

    "He's always fired up on the field," nose tackle Pat Williams said. "That's just Ray. You've got to calm Ray down in a game. He gets mad quick, so we try to calm him down, tell him it's all right. But he's got an attitude about it. Whether you're in practice or in a game, if he's on the field, he's mad."

    Roid Rage?


    This guy sounds like a psychopath.
    I hope he isn't too much of a distraction for his own teammates.

    Yar!!
    In yer face beeotch!!!
    Turley has always been a button pusher...personally, I like that Edwards is getting after them!!
    Just what we needed!!

    Indeed, Edwards has produced an eye-opening training camp, solidifying a starting role no matter when presumed starter Erasmus James returns from knee surgery. If Edwards maintains his current approach, the Vikings say he can be a 10-sack player.

    His pure strength was on display last week, when he bull-rushed left tackle Bryant McKinnie 5 yards into the backfield and into quarterback Brooks Bollinger. Monday, Edwards drove tight end Visanthe Shiancoe to the ground while fighting off a block. Later, he showed his speed by stringing out tailback Chester Taylor on an outside run.
    HELL YEAH DEFENSE!!
    Offense still sounds iffy...
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    There's nothing wrong with playing the game mad, so long as you don't hurt the team.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Exactly.
    We need more players playing with a edge in my opinion.
