    That is an interesting compilation of sack info.
    No surprise that the guys leading the Vikings in sacks allowed are the tackles (McKinnie and Loadholt), as it should be.
    They are down the list pretty far, but better yet from their standpoint, is the average time for the sacks that they gave up was 3.5 seconds.
    Some of the longest times on the list.

    From this report it looks like the pass blocking has greatly improved from last year, of course we already knew that.
    Notice Herrera doesn't have any?
    C play next to him must be better.

    or maybe Herrera stepped up his game.
    How many does Birk have?

    But perhaps the biggest move was signing six-time Pro Bowl center Matt Birk when Jason Brown left for the St. Louis Rams via free agency. Not only has Birk’s steady play shown up on the field, but he brings much-needed veteran leadership to a young offensive line meeting room.

    “Matt has tied our whole line together. Matt in his own right is a really good player,” Harbaugh noted.

    “He does a lot for Joe as far as helping Joe identify some things. He does a great job of communicating to those young guys on either side which direction they need to be going, and that’s really important for a center.”
    Hmmm. Seems a coach likes what he is doing.


    As an aside. I like Sully and believe he is going to be great for the team for a long time. I just have a problem with putting the blame for last years offense on the C instead of on the QB position (Both players) where it squarely belongs. The difference this year has to do with the QB and not the guy snapping the ball.

    I need to find a pic of Matt when we played them.
    Dudes knose was bleeding so much I thought it got ripped off.
    Must be called, "Tieing it together" I guess.

    Not hard to believe. We leave many OL in that shape after facing the Fantastic 4
