    Well no ... those people have press passes and actually TALK to players and front office people of the Minnesota Vikings. They have ACCESS to information that others do not.

    Some of them are interesting no doubt ... but I constantly see them mixed in here as if they are "press" and they are "articles."

    Hell, I could sign up for an account and post 28 Bleacher Report "articles" by the end of the day. That does not make them any sort of solid source material.

    There is a BIG difference between a BR article and a Star Trib or P.Press article. Basically the access to information that is pertinent.
    Can't speak for Singer or the other cats who post links/articles/blogs on here, but I always try to put the ones up that are interesting regardless of who writes them, beit a novice or a pro.

    In this instance, this one was interesting.

    But I think the injuries mounting along the offensive line is similar to the disaster that we Packers experienced through the first 6 to 8 games this season.. and at LT are still fighting.
    Comeon my friend, we didn't loose that game cause our RT and LT went out for a play or two.

    We lost cause we saw something new across the line that was executed to perfection and our staff couldn't figure out how to beat it on the fly.

    Nothing more, nothing less.
    Apparently I was watching a different game.. I seen a ineffective right tackle post being taken off the field for work and a line that was having read break downs to the pressure packages..

    Now.. I also think the Cards might have shown a little bit on how to play the Vikes with pressure on Brett and limiting AP.. now I don't think that many teams have a safety as good as Wilson to pull it off..

    What injuries? Just Herrera who has been out for a few weeks now.
    And Winfield.

    And then last night, EJ, Griffin, McKinnie, T. Johnson and Loadholt.
    Since when did Winfield, EJ, Griffin and Johnson play on the offensive line?

    And both McKinnie and Loadholt returned to the game. Hard to say that resembles the problems the Packers were facing at that position.
    Whoops - my bad for not reading all that was quoted.

    McKinnie (I read last week) has been playing with a bad back for a few weeks. And, even if he returned, he looked like crap.

    And I felt the *shudder* in Vikingland when Cook went in at RT.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I think it is very fair to throw out the comparison.. through half the season we had players playing at less than a 100% percent and it clearly effected their play. Albeit, we had a boat anchor in at right tackle early on, but that really was due to Tauscher not being ready to go.. and remained off the roster.

    Favre was under pressure most the of the game, and to me and watching that was not the same Loadholt playing right tackle..

    We didn't see much in room for AP and Taylor to run as well.. and honestly the Cards are that good in the front seven against the run..

    I could be over estimating how good the Viking line is and expected more... but somehow I think we are seeing a residual effect of injuries along that line.

    No panic here, sometimes in sports, you need to get an ass whooping to wake up. We recieved the first part, now lets see how well we respond to that beat down.

    My prayers go out to EJ and his Family and Team mates. Very bad injury, but I believe over time, he will beat it.

    Time for others to step up and fill that void, simple as that.

    This is still a very good team.

    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Not going to mandate. Just caution people that IMO it is a lame blog that is poorly written.

    I do have a bad taste in my mouth from them because they tried spamming the crap outta us here.

    Injuires and effectivness are two different things. As with the last RT, I don't hack on our youngster out there doing his best.

    I just saw Derrick Brooks on First Take talking about how this is just a "hiccup" and the Vikings do not need to worry.

    Got me to thinking ... he clearly talks as if he still wants to play and we could definitely use the depth. Not sure what kind of shape he is in, but his presence alone could be good for the younger guys who will have to step up now.

    Gotcha. As always I watch the content before I post. Funny how everyone got all in a tizzy over what is a very positive article/blog/whatever.

    Makes me wonder how many actually read the thing or just replied to the title. :dry:

    While not a bad call, I think that getting Robison more involved would be a better choice. Every time he's on the D-line, it seems like he makes (or comes close to making) a play.

    I just wish they'd gone after some of those FA d-backs who were out there like McKenzie or McAlister. Now both are on the Saints and the Vikings are stuck playing Sapp and Allen too much.
