    Kleinsasser: Better to win than receive

    By JUDD ZULGAD, Star Tribune

    Last update: September 2, 2008 - 12:20 AM

    Nine pro seasons have reshaped his goals: He knows he's a blocker first and hungers to return to the playoffs.

    A class act.
    I've always loved having this guy on our team.
    Its better to lose the first game than the last one.

    It's amazing that him and Shiancoe play the same position, yet the expectations for each are so different.

    I've actually always liked Jimmy as a receiving TE also.
    Those 5-10 yard tosses over the middle are always gold for him.
    He can't run very fast, but the man reminds me of Mike Alstott when he just catches the ball, curls up over it and drives with his feet.

    Kleinsasser has always been one of my favorite vikings. He comes to work every day and gives everything his body has to whatever he is asked to do for the team. Maybe some left tackle this year?...
    We're bringing purple back.

    Jimmy's definitly been here for a few. I think we can get him in on some TD's this year, he's sneaky around the goal line.

    It will be intristing to see what happens next year when he's a FA.

    I agree. Kleinsasser had some pretty timely fumbles and dropped passes in the first few years of his career. He is a great blocker but face it, he has not been nor will he ever be much of a receiver.
