Whether or not Brett Favre eventually plays in Minnesota this season the Vikings are preparing for their pre-season opener on Friday night at home against Seatlle. Former Iowa standout Chad Greenway enters his third season with the Vikings and says this is not being treated as a game week just yet.

Greenway says they’re focusing more on doing things in practice, as this game is treated more like a practice than game week. After nearly two weeks of practice Greenway says everyone is ready for a game. He says it’s a grind from the start, and after this first game, the fun starts.

Greenway feels good about how strong the defense may be this season, as he says they’re getting to know the new guys and the team has gotten tighter. He says being a close knit unit will hopefully make for a better season.
