    [size=13pt]GETTING IT RIGHT[/size]

    Thanks to improved play on the right side, the Vikings' offensive line is beginning to live up to high expectations.

    Center Matt Birk said Rosenthal deserves his share of the credit.

    "Mike is a great player," he said. "He's done a great job filling in. He's a student of the game. He's not confused. He's not tentative."
    Rosenthal has certainly made a positive impact on the line, yet at the begining of the season, many here wanted him to be cut.

    Time for them to eat a little crow & give Rosie some credit.

    We wanted him cut because he was reduced to special teams duty and for the past 2 years he had been probably the worst offensive lineman I have ever seen.

    He has bounced back pretty well and if you ask me its about damn time.

    Hopefully now, BJ can get his head out of his arse and play some good football.. If that line is playing better, it sure is not showing in BJ's play.. Time to put up, or shut Brad Johnson..

    It's good to see the line finally stating to do things right.
    Hopefully next year they'll be awseome.

    We need those boys up front to do the bulk of the work and we need them to figure out the pass protection schemes so we can make this playoff run!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
