In a statement that is only surprising because it didn't come out of Jared Allen's mouth, Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway recently told the Star Tribune that he hopes Vikings fans show up to this Sunday's game against the Bears "super duper drunk." Yup, SUPER DUPER. His quote:
"We have to play accordingly and our fans have to show up accordingly, which we know they will," he said after Sunday's loss at Green Bay. "Hopefully, they're super- duper drunk. ... So drink liquor, not beer."
Well, that's certainly not a PSA you see attached to a noon kickoff.
"Yeah, I would say morning drinking," Greenway said. "Why not? You could pull an all-nighter. Then you'd have the drunk, tired guys who will really be obnoxious."
Frankly, it's a great idea. We need you crazy nut jobs to be as obnoxious and stabby as possible, so we can intimidate the Bears,...

The Vikings are fresh off a heartbreaking loss to the Packers. Sitting at 6-6 Chad Greenway knew he had to say something to get his fans fired up for this weekends game against the Bears. Lets just say he now has the best quote of the 2012 NFL season and maybe one of the best of all time.
According to the Star Tribune, Greenway said:
We have to play accordingly and our fans have...
Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway is taking a page out of Tom Brady‘s playbook, but he’s not being quite as diplomatic about his request for fans to get “lubed up.”

The Minnesota Vikings started the season 5-2. Way better than most of us thought they would. They now sit at 6-6 after losing four of their last 5. They come into this weekend with a small chance of still making the playoffs, with their game against the Chicago Bears being a must win. Chad Greenway must know this is the case because he wants their fans to be "Super...
If there’s one thing Chad Greenway doesn’t do, its mess around. So when he tells you to get super duper drunk on Sunday, and be super duper loud. You better do it. Chad isn’t your average frat boy telling you to chug. Chad is the NFL’s leading tackler with 123 of them. The playoffs are [...]
Mark Craig of the Star Tribune discussed the stellar home-field advantage that exists in Minnesota with Vikings coach Leslie Frazier and Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway.
Frazier, as expected, applauded Vikings fans for providing such a stellar home-field advantage. I think we have the best [home-field advantage],” said coach Leslie Frazier, saying what 31 other NFL coaches would...
While the Vikings are busy watching film and preparing for the Bears in a must-win home game Sunday, Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway is also prepping the Vikes’ fans.
“We have to play accordingly and our fans have to show up accordingly, which we know they will. Hopefully, they’re super-duper drunk. … So drink liquor, not beer… Yeah, I would say morning drinking. Why not...
For a hulking human being who is encouraging his team’s fans to get blackout drunk on liquor (he was very specific), Chad Greenway sure knows a lot about the ethanol trade.
Here’s what he said three years ago:
“It’s pretty simple – we take good care of the land, the land takes good care of you.”
Here’s what he said this week, as he encouraged his fans to get loud...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Jared Allen's reputation as one of the league's best pass rushers has earned him extra attention from opposing offenses. Now, Allen and the Chicago Bears are both saying his reputation in a different manner will save him from any extra attention on Sunday.
Allen, who knocked out Chicago Bears offensive linemen Lance Louis with a vicious block on an interception...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Jared Allen has spent five years with the Minnesota Vikings and is well-versed in the Chicago Bears and what they try to do, having played nine career games against Chicago.
Nothing would shock Minnesota's veteran defensive end, who unfortunately has a 2-7 record in those games. Of course, Allen's never had the chance to face Chicago twice in the span...
