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.”
Greenway wants fans to get drunk before the Vikings’ key Week 14 matchup this Sunday against their division rival Chicago Bears. And not just any old drunk either — he wants them “super-drunk.” After all, Minnesota’s season could hang in the balance.
“We have to play accordingly and our fans have to show up accordingly, which we know they will,” he said on Sunday after the Vikings lost to the Packers. “Hopefully, they’re super-duper drunk. … So drink liquor, not beer.”
The seventh-year linebacker also urged fans to begin their game-day festivities on the earlier side, with kickoff scheduled for 12 p.m. local time.
“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.”

Yet another player has be suspended four games by the league for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances. After playing in last night's victory over the New York Giants, Washington Redksins cornerback Cedric Griffin learned that he will suspended for four games for taking a banned substance.
We've been fooled, every last one of us.
Ever since the Vikings drafted "Christian Ponder" and let former Minnesota Vikings starting quarterback, Tarvaris Jackson, walk in free agency to sign with Seattle, we haven't seen any type of improvement in quarterback play. You would think we would, or at the very least that we would notice some type of differences...

Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway said his comments about fans getting drunk were made in a joking manner. That didn’t stop him from getting hammered by bloggers and other reporters.
The Vikings didn’t take advantage of the Bears’ makeshift offensive line in the first meeting, but Everson Griffen is hoping they can change that Sunday.
Adrian Peterson wants to win a couple championships, but the Vikings haven’t even had a winning season since 2009. He is applying his mantra to running the ball to his career goals: patience. Still, as he eyes the 2,000-yard mark for the season, his goals extend beyond the yardage numbers.
Christian Ponder has been outplayed by other younger quarterbacks, but Leslie Frazier said he isn’t ready to “throw in the towel” on Ponder’s development. The quarterback, meanwhile, said he hasn’t lost confidence, even though he is making “pretty dumb” mistakes.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder is scoring both on and off the field. The second-year signal-caller from FSU is engaged to ESPN reporter Samantha Steele.

“Spoke to ESPN’s @Samantha_Steele today. She confirms she is engaged to @VikingsFootball quarterback Christian Ponder,” Deitch tweeted.
The Vikings’ dependence on Percy Harvin was evident before and after his injury. The playing percentages and production before and after his injury show there was only one beneficiary in his absence.
