    Everson Griffen Named NFC Defensive Player of the Month

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...f-month-award/

    October was a pretty good month for the Vikings’ front office.* Twenty-five years after the failed Herschel Walker trade, the Vikings have seen first-round picksAnthony Barr*and*Teddy Bridgewater*begin to blossom.* Likewise, Seattle’s decision to give receiver*Percy Harvin*to the Jets for a bowl of room-temperature gazpacho validates Minnesota’s no-intent deal that brought in a first-round pick, a third-round pick, and a seventh-round pick for a guy who no longer wanted to be there and they no longer wanted.

    Now, the player on whom they took the biggest gamble in 2014 free agency has been named the NFC defensive player of the month.

    Defensive end*Everson Griffen, whose $42.5 million contract was based largely on potential and not production, racked up six sacks in four October games.* He has 8.0 sacks in eight games, putting him third in the league and first among all defensive ends.

    He’s the first Viking to win the award since the guy he replaced,*Jared Allen, did it in 2011.

    EVERYBODY RELAX, I'M BACK!

    Where's that guy (maybe it was carter) that kept fighting with me about the fact that we were going to miss Jarred Allen. Not only has he looked like his career is coming to a fast end in Chicago, Everson has looked like a man possessed so far this year.

    Very happy for him. Heard nothing but good things about his work ethic the last couple seasons. A good story of a guy that finally got it and it's paying off.

    Let's have another Viking get one next month.

    Awesome news and well deserved. He's been straight up beasting. No doubt we all loved what JA did for this organization on and off the field. We were lucky enough to get him in his prime. Most of could see the time had come to cut ties after last season. Nothing personal just business. We have made some good business moves lately.

    I'm now wondering why he slid into the 4th round? Wasn't he considered a top 25 talent?
