    When you think of the Minnesota Vikings, Pro Bowl running back Adrian Peterson probably comes to mind (with the exception of this week)....

    I love Kleinsasser so much. He is more than just glue, he is like the foundation. Robison is really underrated as well.
    We're bringing purple back.

    I whole heartedly agree. Jimmy has been a constant on this team. Done whatever has been asked of him, Tight end, Fullback, he has handled it and handled it well. Jimmy is a gamer in my eyes.

    Hopefully we get to see more of him catching the ball this year now that he does not have to save Cooks ass all the time.

    I think Jimmy K doesn't get enough credit in his pass catching ability... especially from the coaches.
    He has consistent hands, but yet doesn't get the ball thrown his way.
    Granted, he has had to help out blocking and stuff, but you would think he would get more opportunities.

    Yes, I also believe that his hands are not as bad as most people say they are. They are not spectacular, but they aren't what I would call "bad" (definitely better than Troy Williamsson LOL)

    Evans and Robison are both solid.
    A couple seasons ago aside from Kevin & Pat, our DLine has been ok if not questionable in many areas (especially depth), its hard to not be pleased with how it is throughout the chart right now.

    Seems like a really Solid List of Players that are seriously overlooked personnel.

    LOL, Sauce = Big Mac, Shanc = Cook, at least 90% (<- lled out of my ass) of the time in our one TE set.
