I hope E.J. takes the day off, I'm tired of watching this guy (and his brother) get burned for touchdowns every time an opponent reaches the "red zone"!!! This guy has definately lost a step since he came back from his injury and the vikings defense will continue to suffer because of it. He had a nice run but it is clear he is not the same player he was before his injury.

EJ is a true warrior, you just gotta love his toughness and eagerness to play. Gardenhire should invite him to talk to the Twins' players about playing through a little adversity and pain, knowing the difference between injury and general soreness!

Why is it that the Viking fan base has been saying for nearly two seasons now that the O-line needs a major upgrade and the defensive secondary sorely needs one or two athletic playmakers, yet the front office and coaching staff have done absolutely nothing to address these glaring holes/weaknesses? Burning your first two draft picks on a QB and TE seems to be a major mistake, especially when huge, gaping holes exist elsewhere on the roster!

jracer19 - the ONLY thing E.J. is able to "terminate" these days is a viking victory and their salary cap!!! LOL. E.J. has lost a step and everyone knows including his brother who would not even be in the NFL if it were not for E.J. having it written in his contract that his brother must be on the team. What a joke these two are.

purplejinx you are not a true fan your a jinx when it comes to the purple and gold. I for one along with all the other die hard fans will cheer for our team every game every down on the hopes that we will win. You might as well not even watch you are one of those fans that sits on there hands while watching a game. Do us fans a favore and change teams or stop posting comments.
