    I kind of feel sorry for Sully, he will labor in the trenches for several more years doing top 5 work at his position but because he replaced a fan favorite, he will be overlooked when all he did is step up when asked and perform at a top level when he did.
    I think Marrdro is more butt hurt over the fact that fans don't shower Sullivan with love than what Sullivan does. Just because fans don't make it a point to say how good of a center he is, doesn't mean they don't feel that way.

    I'm guessing Sullivan felt the same way stepping into Birk shoes as Birk did stepping into Christy's shoes who felt the same way stepping in to Lowdermilk's shoes as did Swilley stepping into Tinglehoff's shoes.

    With the exception of Sams in 84 & the clusterfuck of a carousel we had playing center in 2005, the Vikings have always had very good/great centers. That in a whole tends to go unnoticed.

    Excuse me if I'm wrong, but was Marrdro not the one who said Sullivan was underweight and no good? I remember at least that several on here wanted to can his ass.

    Tried to dig up the old threads, but they didn't show up.

    I remember that in his first year I felt like I was the only one who wanted to go on with him as our center. Now he's one of the best in the league.

    God it feels good to be right!

    Hmmmm. Seems to need someone above my pay grade. LOL I don't have access to the admin panel to see what the restriction is or if I can white list you. I can ban you LOL but not adjust the security settings. It could be that a spammer is or was spoofing you IP and triggered the security system so now you have a restriction on your IP#. Send Shockzilla a pm about it he has admin access.
