    Red would be red with embarrassment should those alleged pics see the light of day. Red is probably the TOP though, as we all know that Elling is somebody's BEEYATCH.

    Bring back lesnar and drop elling

    Hell at least he brought some heart to the D-line and some determination. if you're gonna have a worthless pile of nothing taking up a roster spot might as well be someone that can deliver some spirit and drive.

    We need to find a punter that can do kickoffs, there has to be someone out there we can trade for or pickup that can do both.

    Ellings average kick went to the 10 yard line and was low line drives that were easy returns.

    We need someone that can kick to the 3 yard line and has a hang time of 3.2

    Darren Bennett has to go his punts are a joke, his 1 punt last night went 31 yards in the air and luckly rolled 8 yards for a 39 yard punt. He is an average of 36 yards a punt.

    There has to be someone out there that can kick, probably 31 out of 32 teams have better kicking games than we do. Even Tennesse who was smart enough to release Elling.

    Elling is one of the main reasons we lost. Tice shouldn't have signed him again in the first place.

    What happened to Travis Dorsch? I thought he was supposed to eventualy handle kickoffs.

    Guns don t kill people. Chuck Norris kills people.

    Good question.
    The Vikings would be really foolish to not be trying out some kickers who can consistently get it inside the 5 yd line this week
    While they're at, they may as well look for a better punter too

    Why is Tice so delusional about this guy!!!!
    He did not have 1 good kickoff!!!!

    This is from an article on KFAN.

    ELLING SAFE
    Philadelphia rookie J.R. Reed had kick returns of 46 and 43 yards Monday, a week after the Vikings allowed a 62-yard return to Dallas’ ReShard Lee.

    Aaron Elling, signed to a two-year contract Thursday to replace Morten Andersen on kickoffs, averaged the 10-yard line on his five kickoffs.

    His final kick, a low line drive late in the fourth quarter, was returned 43 yards and set up the Eagles’ game-clinching field goal.

    “I think we all get caught up in guys kicking the ball to the goal line,” Tice said. “I thought all (Elling)’s kicks were good except for the last one.”

    “The hang time is what we’re looking for. Because of the speed we have, if he can hang the ball and make the play inside the 30, then we’re doing a decent job.”





    How long do we have to put up with this piece of dog sh*t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Elling sucks no doubt, but the long run backs have a lot to do with the special teams coverages not the kicks. They suck, they have for a long time. For years everytime it's kickoff time you hold your breath.

    Gotta disagree with you Del Rio, the returns were directly related to the line drive kicks by Elling. His hang time on his kicks are really bad, and the returner is 10 to 15 yards downfield and with a full head of steam before our cover guys get a shot at him and that why we had the 2 long returns.
