Former Viking defensive end Everson Griffin is now playing with the Detroit Lions. He played 10 seasons in Minnesota with the Vikings where he was coached by Mike Zimmer. Zimmer was quoted as calling Griffin a "good" player. Griffin took exception to that preferring to be called "great".
The Vikings host Detroit Sunday at noon, pregame on WJON at 11:00 a.m. The Lions starting quarterback Mathew Stafford was placed on the reserve/Covid-19 list by the Lions Wednesday. Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan joined me on WJON today.
The Lions lost 23-22 at Green Bay Monday night. A pair of questionable illegal hands to the face penalties called against the Lions' defense helped Green Bay keep a pair of drives alive. Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan joined me on WJON today.
