    Hutchinson, Kevin Williams are named to First Team All-Pro squad

    http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/13663786.html
    Vikings left guard Steve Hutchinson and defensive tackle Kevin Williams were named first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press on Wednesday for the third time in their careers.

    Rookie running back Adrian Peterson, who finished second in the NFL with 1,341 rushing yards this season and was the AP offensive rookie of the year, finished behind San Diego's LaDainian Tomlinson and Philadelphia's Brian Westbrook in voting by a national panel of media members. Peterson was one of four Vikings on the second team...

    We are starting to get some good recognition!!

    i can't wait till next year when that list just grows and grows.
    Hopefully we'll have 5-6 on the first team

    and a few more pushin they way in on the 2nd team.

    I haven't looked at the all pro nominations and who's all on the first team and second team, but why isn't Birk on their? Is their a better Center in the league then him, or does the oline as a hole just get certain votes, and not per position?

    Birk did make the All-Pro team, he just isn't a starter. The starter will be Jeff Saturday of the Colts. Birk, though, didn't make the second team wither. Probably Dan Koppen of the Pats or Dan Koppen or Jahri Evans of the Saints will be on the second team.
    Birk had his problems this year.

    I don't think he lost a step.


    I think he struggled at times with his line calls associated with blitz packages (disguised or not) that were being thrown at the line this year.

    He will be back in top form next year after an offseason of watching game tape on those fronts they were seeing.

    Re: Hutchinson, Kevin Williams are named to First Team All-Pro squad

    Idk bout that Marr

    He doesn't look as explosive as he used to

    And we used to pull him all the time since he was our best pulling lineman

    I didn't see him pull one time this year

    Idk if thats because he lost a step or if we choose not to..

    But he definitley lost a step.. Not a huge one.. But he is getting older and the injuries have hampered him just a little bit

    He is a still great however

    I am not 100% sure of this but in the ZB scheme if someone pulls it is normally the guard or the tackle.
    The C then seals to the gaurds vacated spot in the zone.

    By the way, I did see him pull as well.
