    Re: Grading the Rookies so Far (Bleacher Report)

    Ryan D’Imperio has been impressing at camp after being called up form the practice squad, but his camp performances might not even be enough to earn a spot on the roster.

    Why?

    Well, Bill Musgrave's system doesn't need a FB by his own admission, and it may come down to whether or not the Vikings feel as if they need to deploy one.
    Our good friend EJmat came up with an idea to use Webb as our 5th WR to keep an additional OLmen.

    As I mentioned in reply, FB might be the place were they do that if they feel they need to.

    As I mentioned before (no I didn't read the article), I could see them trying to sneak D'Imperio on the roster at the expense of Dugan.

    Quite frankly, Dugan doesn't have a role here anymore if D'Imperio seems ready to go. Dugan is a guy who can do everything, but not do anything exceptionally well. Average in all facets of the position at both TE and FB but doesn't stand out. if D'Imperio can do just that, but is younger and cheaper, we might just go that way.

    With Shank, Sauce, Rudolph and D'Imperio, that's a crowded TE/FB crew.

    I thought discussions stimulated by Bleacher Report were below you and Caines standards.

    On a side note, you did see my comment on the other FB who actually brings catching the football to the table right?

    Not entirely. Linking to the BR as reference to anything is below me and Caine's standards :P.

    Linking to a story that is terribly written, uses false statistics etc. is below me and Caine's standards.

    Linking to something, throwing out an idea about a FB then me commenting on your post without reading the actual article seems fine.

    I'm now officially lumping you and our O-coord on a spreadsheet all your own.

    Hahaha. No one saw that because no one clicked on the stupid thing.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.
