BJ Reidell and Drew Mahowald welcome back Austin Belisle to the show to discuss the announcement that life-long Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway will retire from the National Football League. The trio of Vikings Territorians send No. 52 to “the football afterlife” through their personal memories, what made him effective on the gridiron, how he affected the team beyond his football talent, a back-and-forth on what his “Vikings Headstone” will read, speculation regarding how much his departure affects the team moving forward and who the likely candidates are to take on his essentially unfillable leadership role.
The guys also offer their takeaways from the NFL combine, but that’s irrelevant here.
