    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    Singer just wondering why you have this and another article about the Vikes in the General NFL forum.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I'm a little confused/worried about kluwe holding for longwell. last year, some, including longwell (i think) pointed to the new holder as a reason for his struggles. I think letting him practice with kluwe, who isn't a lock to make the team (unless they keep 2 punters) work with longwell, who has had a history of poor adjustments to new holders.

    I sincerely doubt Kluwe won't make the team; Torp was just insurance in case Kluwe couldn't bounce back from the injury, and to see them penciling Kluwe as the primary holder solidifies my belief Torp will be gone soon.
    PM me if you'd like a sig.

    My mistake. I probably hit "New Topic" while I was in a thread from the "General NFL" forum or I did it from a thread that was in the Vikings forum but was moved to the General NFL discussion as I was posting the
    "How good are the Vikes?" thread.

    I posted this article by hitting "New Topic" while I was in the "How good are the Vikes?" thread.

    So what are you saying, that we should sign Doug Peterson out of retirement to hold for Longwell? Longwell went to a new team, so anyone that holds the ball for him will be new to him.. If they are working together the whole camp, there is no reason why they can't gel.. They have plenty of time to get it down..

    No, I'm saying that he should work with someone that is a lock for the team so they can gel longer.
