    Brian Robison: Challenge is big, but so is confidence

    [size=13pt]Vikings: Challenge is big, but so is confidence[/size]

    Defensive end Brian Robison isn't conceding a thing even though the Vikings added a star at his position.

    I like him. He has a strong push and speed on the outside. Whenever we need to rest Allen, he will fill in nicely.

    Robison as well as Grigsby are going to be a big reason for any success we have keeping that d-line rotation strong and fresh. When Robison comes in I don't see us losing a step, and will keep Jared fresh for the fourth quarter.

    Yeah, depth, experience and quality are not such bad things to have on the D line. See what the Giants did with it.

    Well, Chiller said we were a "wave rushing team," and that any DL players dressed would get time to keep them all fresh all game, so Robison should get some chances.
    Otis played well too, but the question is, with Mitchell out, who spells Ray at LDE...seems to me, that we have a bunch of RDEs and no real run stopping LDEs behind Ray.
    They said Wyms could play both, but we haven't seen that yet...or have we?
    On third and long, sure, take a page from the Giants book and throw some extra DE/pass rush in there...but on third and shorts, we're going to want the starters...No?
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Love the confidence.

    Pat & Kevin are always competing with each other trying to get after the QB/ball carrier

    Jared Allen basically tries to kill the QB on every play

    Ray Edwards says he would love to take a run at Strahan's NFL single season sack record

    Robison wants 10 sacks

    Going to be a hell of a year to watch our DLine lol

    Re: Brian Robison: Challenge is big, but so is confidence

    30 Snaps a game might be too much, but I agree he needs to be in the rotation because teams will be gunning to wear down our ends in order to provide time in the passing game. Running the football against us just isn't gonna happen IMO. There best shot is to run a spread offense with a no huddle.

    On a side note I recently recieved my Viking UpDate and they had a very nice article in there about Brian Robison. Everyone knows about his shot put ability and what he did in college but not alot of people understand the commitment it took in order to accomplish this.
    In College Robison was a beast running a 6AM to 11PM regular schedule, performing both in football and track. This summer we had the olympics but Robison decided to focus his attention toward becoming a dominant DE. Leslie Fraiser also had some great comments, noting that he's coached several young DE's, Freeny being one and nobody has begun to perfect moves on a consistent bases like Robison already has. Frazier claims that Robison's lower body strength (Which he uses for shot-put) is amazing and he uses it to his advantage and gets great leverage.

    I read the article before the Cowboy game then watched him dominate by getting consistent pressure. This was after 3 to 4 weeks off, needless to say I'm very exited to have Robison on the team and as we continue to draft and develop players we will have the opportunity to be an elite team.

    That post got me re-pumped up about Robison.

    I wish we had this depth at OT. It is going to be exciting to watch Allen, Edwards, Grigsby, and Robison. All big time players IMO.

    It was a nice article.
    Not sure how you got yours before the Dallas game. I just got mine last Mon I think.
