A foot injury kept Pro Bowl defensive end Everson Griffen out of the lineup for the Vikings on Sunday, but it didn't stop him from firing up his fellow defensive linemen during a pregame speech. 

Here's the expletive-filled gem in full, courtesy of the Vikings' Facebook page (NSFW).

"I don't give a f--- what y'all gotta do today. Leave that s--- out there on the motherf------ field. You the baddest motherf------ on the g--damned planet. So do your job for 60 motherf------ minutes. And wear them b------ out till the very end." 

Is that Shakespeare? Hard to tell. 

The Vikings beat Washington 38-30 to improve to 7-2 on the season.
