Antoine Winfield made the first Pro Bowl of his ten-year career Tuesday.

Six Vikings are going: Adrian Peterson, G Steve Hutchinson, DTs Kevin and Pat Williams and DE Jared Allen. Winfield's honor is overdue. He finally made some game-changing plays this season to go along with his usual steady tackling and covering skills.

Glad to see the list.

Would have liked to see Greenway too.

No Birk either....

Agreed- Greenway is involved in almost every tackle on the field. Reminds me alot of Uhrlacher.

Hmmmmmm, Only 2 Packers. Thats a shame. And Mr Big Bucks QB wasn't one of them

Good to see, all well deserved and Winfield was by far overdue. I could see Greenway going, but he'll get there for sure.

I think if EJ didn't get hurt he would be there too. But Greenway and Leber did step up...If Greenway keeps playing at his same level he will make a Pro Bowl or two during his career.

Well deserved for Winfield, another season like this and Greenway will be there next year. Did you hear that Winfield is taking the entire secondary to Hawaii. He said the made the agreement before the season started. Whoever made it brings the rest of them. Pretty classy.

Winfield is a total class act! That is cool he is bringing the rest of the secondary. He is undersized, but plays with a heart of a lion.

I think Greenway is very close. He might be next in line if one of the Pro-Bowl Linebackers goes down with an injury before the end of the year.

As said Winfeild well deserving and past due. I can think of another player that did not get recognized, Jack Delrio. Thankfully for Winfeild he didnt get overlooked.

Seems like we always have a great player at that position..

Favre over Rivers?......LOL

I thought the same thing. He's got 21 TDs but 17 interceptions, Philip Rivers with 28 and 11 should have definitely gotten the nod over him.

Not bad for a supposed "washed up" QB that MN fans didn't want.hehe.gif

Pro Bowl selection #10, BTW.

No. That was floating around in emails, etc. during the Favre un-retirement saga earlier this year.

I don't think it was a case of Minnesota not wanting him, just that the Packers wouldn't let him come here. PB are all well deserved. I think Greenway's a liitle overated, not real good in pass coverage, (until last 2 weeks) and I think only reason we talk about him is the real PB is hurt. EJ

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new!

    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*
