    Look for Vikings offensive line to improve

    It's encouraging to hear that the line is headed in the right direction. This could be an interesting season if Ponder gets some time and our backs get some holes to run through.

    Here's one area to work on!

    Holding patterns: Passing attempts are up and so are holding calls - NFL - CBSSports.com News, Rumors, Scores, Stats, Fantasy


    The worst five teams that need to fix the problem this offseason. Three of these teams were playing rookie quarterbacks, so the linemen likely dealt with a QB who struggled to get rid of the ball on time or had unpredictable escape plans that can lead to holding calls:

    1. Raiders 1 hold every 21.8 passes
    2. Panthers 1 hold every 22.8 passes
    3. Broncos 1 hold every 23.8 passes
    4. Bengals 1 hold every 24.3 passes
    5. Vikings 1 hold every 30.0 passes
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Some players are called for holding less than others simply because they are so skilled at holding. Chad Clifton comes to mind.
    Loadholdt has the widest wingspan on the line yet fails to get his hands on speed rushers at times.
    He needs to improve or it's going to be another long season. I don't mind seeing him have some holding penalties. I would like to see him have less pre snap penalties though.
