    Our potential savior at DB

    Oh goodie the answer to all of our pass defense issues. Are we that hard up?

    McCann in for workout
    September 18th, 2007 – 5:35 PM by Judd Zulgad
    The Vikings took a look at one free agent Tuesday, working out cornerback Dee McCann. A sixth-round pick by the Detriot Lions in 2006, McCann spent most of last season on that team’s practice squad. He was released this month in Detroit’s final cuts. McCann, 5-11, 198 pounds, had seven interceptions and three fumble recoveries in two seasons at West Virginia.

    Oh wow Dee McCann! Im sure hes a gamebreaker! I was all excited when i seen the headline i thought someone cut a good CB and then i see Dee McCann. Why did he only play 2 seasons at WVU? He must of been a JuCo transfer. Those are decent stats, maybe we should sign him. Who knows he could turn out to be a good player. We are desperate a CB

    Scouting Report: Dee McCann
    Posted by Tom Kowalski July 03, 2007 06:00AM
    Categories: Scouting Report
    A sprained right knee late in the off-season workouts might land Dee McCann on the Physically Unable to Perform list at the start of training camp. McCann vows he'll be back in time and there's a lot of competition at cornerback so he can't afford to lose much time.

    Last year, McCann spent the first 15 games on the practice squad and was promoted to the 53-man roster for the season finale, but was inactive against the Cowboys.

    McCann, last season's sixth-round draft pick, has decent speed and he's playing with more confidence now. However, he still has to show more consistency in handling his assignments. At 5-10 and 200 pounds, he's got the size to be a physical force on the corner and he'll have to put that on display when the team gets into pads during camp.


    Here is a little Q&A with Dee McCann:

    You realize that this is just a player we can potentially bring in if someone goes down with an injury.. Practice squad at best. People just want to look for reasons to jump on Childress. It's ridiculous.

    Too true.

    Not every f'n player brought in will be bought in to be an impact player. Chill.

    Should have had him in BEFORE the Lion's game so he could have told us a few things.

    yah this is a guy they probably see some potential in, not someone to save the day.
    who would the vikes remove to make him active.
    no one i can think of.
    and considering all detroit was doing last week was throwing i though we did a good job, especially in the 2nd half.
    more pressure, better tackling, tighter coverage.
    that was a tough assignment last week and we held them to 20 points even after giving the ball away 5 times.
    i think we're fine.
    LET THAT WHICH DOES NOT MATTER, TRULY SLIDE

    I could have told you that they would throw all day and that we would need to pressure Kitna and simultaneously have good coverage.
