Fresh off an embarrassing 20-3 loss against the 49ers on Monday Night football, the Minnesota Vikings appear to be in no mood for tomfoolery, shenanigans, or hijinks.
As a matter of fact, at least one player, DE Everson Grifeen--who was last seen overpursuing his sink on the way to brushing his teeth this morning--has become downright primal:
Now Everson is growling and muttering "embarrassing" to himself. #Vikings— Aj Mansour (@AjKFAN) September 16, 2015
Oh. Growling. Is that bad? That seems bad.
But was Everson Griffen finished? NO SIR, HE WAS NOT FINISHED:

Ah, the dreaded guarantee. I love the attitude, especially if he like, you know, growled it. But guarantees have a way of blowing up in your face like defective fireworks. On the flip side, I'd rather see this kind of pissed off display than the 'well, we'll just look at the tape and make corrections' robot mode of years gone by.
And finally, Chad Greenway had this to offer:

That's good Chad, neither did we. But after we had to watch it, by God, you do too. Embrace the suck, because there's a lot of it.
