    Herrera is Vikings’ unsung hero

    ....All-Pro guard Steve Hutchinson, six-time Pro Bowl selection Matt Birk and former top-10 draft pick Bryant McKinnie are all highly regarded blockers on a unit most consider one of the NFL's best.

    But it was a former undrafted rookie's ascent to the starting lineup that helped fuel running back Adrian Peterson's magical rookie campaign last season....

    Great picture of Anthony Herrera singer. That guy is a moose, and is one of my favorite current Vikings. Watching him making two or three pancake blocks downfield on a big run is a joy. The enthusiasm he brings is infectious and he really mauls his opponent.

    Thanks for the read my friend.

    Instead of bemoaning his status with Childress, though, Herrera dedicated himself to learning the new system, toned down his ultra-aggressive mentality and became more disciplined. He forced the coach to notice him and a poor right side that featured two mediocre players in Hicks and right tackle Ryan Cook was immediately strengthened when he stepped on the field.
    As with PT, I love watching this cat play.

    I believe his presence helped Cook become better.
    Not sure why the Chiller likes Hicks so much by the way.

    yeah i'm in agreement with you guys on this one.

    My dad pointed that switch out to me last year, and said. "This is what should have happened had Bchill not been sooooo noobish in his coaching and player selections.. "
    I think that we are getting now a line that is going to anchor our team for a years.. and with the prospects of Birk teaching the craft this year to a new C.. we'll just have to hope that this will be the case for years to come!!

    I think we are set at all of the interior line positions. The tackle position is more of an unknown. We know there is talent and potential, but until that talent turns into solid production in all phases we can only hope it works out.
