    McKinnie

    I was watching the "Game of the Week" on NFL network (yes, I'm masochistic), and there was a shot of McKinnie taking out some defenders on Ontarrio's big run. I don't know how strong of a lineman he is, but holy cripes, is he huge. He made the defenders look like smurfs!
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    Yeah at 6' 8" and 340+ he's not small. A definite plus either with the running game or pass blocking.

    Well, sometimes with guys that big they are SO big they can't really have the agility to run, get in position, and make the plays. I know he did on the play they showed on the game, though. Wow.

    Actually, he's more like about 370 or so. I read a story in the paper where the reporter was interviewing him in a restaurant, and he had to struggle his way into the booth!

    He's one of the few Vikings that looks the same size as the coach. I think he had his best game last weekend. I didn't see anyone beat him around the end for once. He hasn't lived up to expectations, but last week he did.

    Mckinnie's size has hurt him against faster D-lineman like freeney(who doesn't have trouble with him) and some others. He had a horrible game against the texans too, trying to block wong. He got lazy early in the season and that might have contributed to him getting beat a lot. Tice called him out in front of the team, not too long ago and he has turned it around and played great. KGB in the last 2 GB games was shut down by him.
