    Fonoti to start for Liwinski

    According to the newest tice pc (at vikings.com) lewinski is going to be benched for fonoti. he also said herria is going to back up, and fowler and withrow will split time in practice, due to fowler's injury. someone asked a question which was hard to understand, but tices response was something like "we are not suiting up 9 guys, and we got the 5 startes and marcus, withrow, and herria"


    I'm shocked at this. I knew he wasnt too high on liwinski, but to first bench him and then not even have him suit up?!?!?! Maybe there is somthing i'm missing in the interview...but if i got it right, wow.

    anyway, i guess we will see fonoti for the first time in purple and yellow on monday!

    Re: Fonoti to start for Liwinski

    some more info later in the interview:
    someone asked why he was making the switch to fonoti, and he said the defensive line doesnt want to go agianst him, even though he doesnt know the offense. he also said if he doenst work out, he has a guy behind him (herria), who have been around and deserves a chance, maybe over fonoti. He said called fonoti a beast and said he brings an attitude to the line, which they were lacking

    Wow, big news there. Shake-ups are coming, it is strange that Liewinski isn't even suiting up though.

    Listen to Tice

    http://play.rbn.com/?url=nfl/nfl/open/vikings/demand/Tice111705.rm&proto=rtsp

    I hope Tice knows what he is doing here. This is an IMPORTANT game to try this and have it fail or the guy get winded.

    I cannot believe Leiwinki is sitting out!! That makes no sense. It will be nice to Fonoti in there because he is a VERY solid run blocker ... if he gets winded it would be nice to have Lewski to go in, but I guess not ... I don't think starting Fonoti hurts us at all, but not have Lewski around might. By the way ... if we keep all these guys ... McKinnie, Fonoti, Birk, Fowler and Johnson could be a mean line next season with solid back ups in Lewski, Goldberg and maybe even Rosenthal.

    Re: Fonoti to start for Liwinski

    The O line has been so crappy I don't think anything can really hurt it. :lol: This is the reason we got Fonoti. We didn't get him as a backup guy. I also found this quote interesting.
    and he said the defensive line doesn't want to go against him,
    That has to be encouraging to all Vikings fans. Another 1 1/2 - 2 seconds in the pocket and BJ is going to have a lot of good days ahead of him. Who knows maybe even Bennett will find a hole or two on Fonoti's side of the ball. :smile:

    Herrera, is suppose to be a mean mutha too. He just hasn't mastered the intelectual part of the line just yet.

    As far as Fonoti, has Tice showed us his hand in the game plan, "he doesn't know the plays" yet??????

    Smash Mouth? Maybe!
