Keeping Greenway around is smart but it is just the first step in many that need to be taken. Vikings have some talent at the skill positions, I think they roll the dice with Webb unless somebody drops in their laps. Too many offensive problems stemmed from injuries and sub-par play at LT, RG, and C. If the Vikes start grabbing OL in FA, then I would expect them to target DL's and DB's in the draft - there are some good prospects in the top 40 spots.

Smart move. Rice is good but not worth top dollar yet. One good year does not make you deserving of big money. Greenway has proved he's a quality LB every year.

Another miss by the Viking front office. Greenway might be among the top 12 linebackers in the NFC. No way is he worthy of the franchise tag. This organization has had their heads up their as since the late, great Jim Finks left for Chi-town. Unless they blow this thing up from top to bottom and start over, this franchise will see another 50 years of mediocrity.

Yep, when your defense plays more than your offense, stats usually go up that year...Vikings got suckered.

You could go to the Cincinnati Bengals. Remember, the first game you played for the Green Bay Packers was at Cincinnati. The QB went down to injury and you came in and led the team to victory. Favre Mania had its beginnings there. And Carson Palmer could go to the Vikings. Oh, and you could go to the Cleveland Browns. Your former Green Bay coach is working with them now. And that way you'd be close to Cincinnati, playing there once a season and them playing at Cleveland once a season. By the way, I'm being serious. Not kidding around. Just some thoughts.

Well duh, no one said he was! Not to mention that an outside LB in a 3-4 defense plays a vastly different role than one in a 4-3 defense.

That chump is anything but a team player, and he doesn't deserve to wear purple.
Then elevate Logan Payne from the practice squad? Recipe for success.

The game was Lambeau.

His first game with Green Bay was a week earlier against Tampa Bay.

Vikings are morons, putting the franchise tag on a long snapper, what a waste! Brett Favre tried to put his franchise tag on my long snapper but it was so tiny I couldn't stop laughing
