Well, I remember when they moved this guy around twice, benched him a few times, and most thought Dontarrius Thomas would end up being the better player. His first few years he really struggled at times, was caught out of position, and tried to tackle from the hips up. Last year it finally clicked for him and you could just tell that "he got it."

I think he's in for a Pro Bowl year. He has been absolutely lights out in the first 3 games. Definitely warranted the defensive captain/radio headset. I think we'll be in for a lot of tackles for loss and amazing plays in 2008.

i've stuck with EJ since the beginning...i always hoped he would be real good...he was the worst linebacker i ever seen in coverage a couple years ago lol...he still isn't the greatest at pass coverage.

he can sure blow up and make some bone crunching tackles though...he's everywhere these days like a machine...that was awesome when he jumped like superman through the line and made that tackle last sunday.

What an Awesome performance!!! I've also really enjoyed the looks on the opposing team's QB's faces. They really don't wanna be there! Defense has been doing a way great job!!!

lol thats to funny right there....i had a bunch of friends over for the game sunday and i said the same exact thing...you can see it in the qb's faces that they don't want to play anymore..manning and delhomme looked like they seen a ghost...cool thing is our D should just keep getting better....tough test this week...titans are built just like us except they have a better coach.

I have to admit that I was an EJ hater his first few seasons. The first few games this year and pretty much all of last year have changed my mind. Go Vikes!

a lot of stiff competition in the NFC between guys like Willis,Urlacher,Barnett,Ruud, Tatupu,Beason. However of those guys the only guy i might rather have is Willis. EJ is vastly underrated and sorry bears fans, the best MLB in the division

It sure is fun watching the game on TV, when E.J. shows up on the screen you know the play is done. The guy is all over the field and he sure can hit.

lol lets not go overboard...i wouldn't compare ej to urlacher.

ej has only had 1 real good season and that was last year...he was a borderline probowl caliber player last year.

i agree he's under rated...if he keeps playing like he has been he should easily make the probowl this year.

He is just finally now earning the $ they pay him. Last year he was better than average, not Pro Bowl material, and this year he is having a good season. Lets see what the rest of the year brings and not count the chickens before they hatch.

I sure do hope he has a pro bowl year though. Him and whatever QB we wind up playing. You know our 2 runningbacks will get it done.

    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
