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!

EJ has definitely changed my thoughts about him. He played like an animal yesterday! Very happy for him.

the guy is a stud in the NFL. He has been missed for the pro bowl for too many years.

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.

In my opinion Urlacher is overrated......He can get pushed around vs the run

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
