[u] You vikes fans did anybody else notice that he was all over the field today?? Even in pass coverage when he he tackled Green on the screens, and that one play where he stuck the tight end as soon as he caught it. Is it just me or are we finally seeing this guy blossom into the second round steal we thought we were getting when we drafted him? He has been so much more consistent on the field.... when he was healthy this year.

He looked good, very good. About half-way between Big Fat Pat (awesome) and Napolean Harris (non-factor). A pleasent surprise today. He really jacked up Green on that play that Ahman got injured too.

He has definitely been more consistent this year, I did notice I heard his name quite a few times on the radio. Even when he was not making the tackled he seemed to be in pursuit on a lot of the plays.

Napo made a big stop at the end of the game today to force the field goal by GB. He earned his money today.

E.J. won some award in college for being the best LB in the country that year...so you'd hope he starts producing!!

Yeah, being down here in ACC country, I got to see a lot of EJ in college and he was an absolute stud. He was projected a top 15 pick until he slacked at the combines. I really think that he has the speed and athleticism to succeed at this level, and hopefully this is the first of a lot more stellar days from him.

lets hope Henderson can inspire K williams to play with some heart. did he even make a tackle today? I don't recall k will even being in Favre's face at all.

Maybe EJ can be a model to N Harris too. he played pretty awful today.

k will was working against trausher most of the game, thats why he got shut down.

well, he wasn't working against traucher in the previous 4 games.....K-will has just been a disappointment this seasons so far.

GO EJ!!

EJ had a very good game today. That hit he made on Green was freaking beastly. Let's hope he keeps it up!

i thought that newman played really really good. he was hurt for a little bit, but when he was out there, he was making plays. same with fat pat. unstoppable.

There's no doubt in my mind, He's played like this all year, very very consistent and explosive.

Most people dont know this but he played with a f'd up knee last year, all year, an injury that tice said most wouldn't have played with. Today we got a chance to see him at 100% healthy.

What always gave me more hope for EJ was the last two years when he did those little things to make you go, he's got what it takes, he's just gotta be more focused, more of a student to the game. He's really impressed me so far this year.

Newmans been playing explosive football, he looks really good and has since last year when I thought he was our best LB. If we continue to play the 3-4 expect opposing offenses to see alot of Newman, especailly the QB.

Newman is bad arse, hes playin some Pro Bowl calibur football, I voted for him on the pro bowl ballot. Dont forget guys go to NFL.com and vote and get our boys in the pro bowl!

Hahaha

EJ played like a Pro Bowler against terrible pulling guards and a decimated offensive line.

Calm down guys, for real.

still playign this way against the pack gives him the boost confidance and shows the fudmentals hes been working on. Work and not to get fraustrated.

henderson is getting better ofcourse he can't be good right away unless he's one of the few. i was dissappointed in harris he seemed to be standing around and not trying hard enough, on one pass all he had do to was reach out with his hand but he let it by him whats up with that?
