    For the first time since the final six games of the 2005 season, Anthony Herrera is in the Vikings' starting lineup, and he could be around for a while......

    Re: Herrera earns starting job on OL

    I wonder how much of this was due to Herrera's play and how much was due to Hick's having a whinge earlier about the rotation on the OL.
    Maybe we'll be seeing Hicks on his way at the end of the season.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Re: Herrera earns starting job on OL

    I've been in favor of Herrera starting all along.
    I thought he did a good job in Tice's last year and I thought he would be better at RG than Hicks.
    Did anyone else see the play on the second drive where he pulled to the left and blew Urlacher onto his butt, great play.
    I hope he can keep playing like he did on Sunday.

    Herrera brings more emotion, I loved him canning Urslacker. As a whole our o-line had a great game. With Childress settling on Herrera as a starter, this line will get better every week. They already have dominated the 8 man fronts we've seen so much of this year. And having the same 5 guys start builds chemistry, and continuity.

    Re: Herrera earns starting job on OL

    I for one am not sold on either one of them.
    Until Herrera shows some consistency I am gonna keep a close eye on him.

    By the way, I am still not sold on any of our OL yet.
    I still say, fire the OL coach. Heck he even has an assistant.
    Promote him and let him do the job if the line sucks against Dallas this week.
    ;D

    In the middle of the excitement around him Sunday, Anthony Herrera continually reminded himself of one thing: stay calm.

    Re: Herrera earns starting job on OL

    Just to preach along with the choir. I like this too. I have thought all along that Herrera were the best one suited to be our RG.

    If some of you look for some furthere 'insight' of what Chilly thought about his development to earn the honor of the starting spot, I urge you to check out his comments about it in the press conf. thread.



    PS.: Why isn't Del here to give me a qualified breakdown of the G play?

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.
