    MANKATO, Minn. — In his first meeting of training camp, Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier laid out his unit's goal for the upcoming season on a whiteboard in a classroom at Minnesota State Mankato.....

    Will be interesting to see how much of a step up the defence gets with EJ being back on the field. I'm looking for our LB corp to be really nasty this year.

    YEAH all the pieces are there. Could use some better play from Ray Edwards or Brian Robison to complement Allen.

    well this year Edwards & Robison go into TC and regular season knowing exactly what is on the other end of the DL. I'm just hoping that will light a fire under them to up their game.

    As long as they stay healthy and Tyrell locks down that safety spot, I expect great things from this defense.

    Same here. I'm excited to have EJ back in the game!


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    More takeaways, and three and outs is what I'm hoping for.


    The big differense this year for us will be the way improved special team play. Not going to have any return points scored on us this season. That alone will win two more games.

    That seems to be our only Question mar really. Has T.J. improved.

    For this year, I think it was good that Tyrell got to play as much as he did as a rookie.
    As long as "the 3rd Williams" stays healthy, I think the Vikes backfield will be as good if not better than last year.

    Throw in the return of E.J. and Greenway in his 3rd year as a starter, the future looks bright.

    Only some judge can screw it up.
