“Good Guy” Award Goes To Shiancoe

Posted by Mike Wobschall on January 14, 2010 – 4:14 pm

Each year the Twin Cities media awards the Kory Stringer Good Guy Award to a Vikings player who is the most cooperative and personable with reporters. Today before the Vikings practiced, Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune honored TE Visanthe Shiancoe with the award.

It’s a good choice because Shiancoe is indeed one of the most personable and willing-to-talk Vikings on the roster. Good game or bad game, late week or early week, Shiancoe is there to talk about it.

Chip Scoggins of the Star Tribune cited a recent example of an exchange Shiancoe had with reporters on a Monday. While Shiancoe is often detailed and sincere during his interviews, he also has the ability to be funny and care free. This is clearly an example that displays his sense of humor.

    VikingsDFan…I think… I have to believe that the Vikings coaching staff has looked at this team for the last 2 weeks…and figured out that they do have a great pass rush,(AS DO WE), which you never hear about from the media, we only lead the league in sacks, anyways……….I have to believe that they will not allow Brett to stand back there and get killed all game! We stretch the field with Rice and B.B. and then we use are slot guys..Harvin and bring in Chester and Shank to do some cleaning also! We spend the first quarter and a half showing’em that and then when they get loose…..we let A.P. run down their throats and kill the clock. Look……Dallas are going to get a couple big plays..but we control time of pos. ! We do that…we WIN!!!!!!!

    What kills me is this, almost zero NFL “Experts” have given the Vikes a chance in this game…not 1…all of them have picked the Cowboys to win this game….hands down! Not only that, but they have said,”Once they do, they expect them to go to the Superbowl.” WOW….I don’t care if the Vikes even win the next game, as long as they beat Dallas. That’s really how I feel about it……ZERO RESPECT…..I can’t believe how the “EXPERTS” have bitten on this Cowboy Bandwagon Wave! It’s all I want in 2010…….Vikings in a blow out!!! That’s all I want! Either way….I’m sooooo happy to be off on MONDAY! Will need it either way it goes!

    The Vikes will beat Dallas – no worries. Bret has the cajones along with the skills and instincts to lead this team all the way. Defense just has to show up like they have all year at home. Football championships boil down to a mental state of mind. I think the Vikes learned something about themselves in that slump period and they will be sharp. Dallas is good, but they will falter in our home. I will be cheering for the Cards over Saints and the NFC championship in Minnesota!!!
