Competition On OL Remains Thick; Practice NotesAside from being back “home” again for practice, it was also nice to see RG Anthony Herrera back in the action. Herrera didn’t participate in the Mankato portion of training camp and he didn’t play in Saturday night’s preseason opener because of injuries, but on Monday Herrera was back in the action and he was working with the first-team offense.
Herrera wasn’t the only one working with the first-team at RG, though. In fact, I noticed quite a bit of rotation at first-team RG and at second-team RT. Herrera and Scott Kooistra spent time with the first-team at RG, while Chris DeGeare, who started at RG on Saturday night, was actually playing RT with the second-team. Also playing with the first-team at RG was Ryan Cook.
It was a bit of a surprise to see Kooistra at RG because he’s played primarily OT during training camp. He does have experience playing guard, though, so it wouldn’t be a total surprise to see him make the move inside. For now, Frazier indicated Kooistra will concentrate mainly on OT.
Saw something in the yell from our good friend MulletMullitia about Herrera. This is good news.
Kindof interesting all the permeations that are being mixed in as they try to figure out the OL this year.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Re: Competition On OL Remains Thick; Practice NotesVikings right guard Anthony Herrera returned sooner than expected from the physically-unable-to-perform list, joining the first team in group installation for Monday's practice at Winter Park.
Man this is good news. Lets hope he isn't being rushed back.
Something of interest......
Herrera, 31, did not participate in 11-on-11 drills, opening the door for Scott Kooistra and Ryan Cook to get reps. Cook replaced Herrera after he was injured last season.
Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
Re: Competition On OL Remains Thick; Practice Notes
Definitely a positive sign from the standpoint that they will give other guys a shot if someone isn't playing up to expectations.
Lets hope that they do the same at safety.

Re: Competition On OL Remains Thick; Practice NotesThe general consensus after the first preseason game is that the Vikings‘ offensive line looks about as stout as a group of fourth graders attempting to protect their school from a 50-ft tsunami by standing in front of it with their arms interlocked. Yes it was that brutal at times. I don’t want to suggest Steve Hutchinson looked washed-up on that one 3rd-and-short play, but the only other time I remember a grown man going backward that fast it was because he got too close to a jet engine.
Everyone that hates our OL will like what this guys says, except maybe the ones that will take umbrage to his comments about Hutch.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
