    Ray Edwards seeks sack title

    For Ray Edwards, the 2007 season was supposed to be his season of promise. And at times, he delivered with 5 sacks... until late December. That's when the NFL suspended Edwards for four games for violating the league's steroid policy...

    Ryan Kibbe, of KSTP-TV, in Minnesota, reports the Minnesota Vikings moved DL Ray Edwards from right defensive end to left end after bulking up five to 10 pounds....

    Re: Ray Edwards seeks sack title

    Thanks for the read my friend.

    Edwards also made other changes. He's bulked up about 5 to 10 pounds, since the Vikings moved him from right end to left defensive end.
    More poppy cock from the press.
    We all know that the LDE doesn't have to be bigger than your typical RDE to play that position.
    All he has to do is have good technique/skills and he can out play the bigger guys on that side.
    ;D(Marrdro giggles to himself) ;D


    As to his claim.
    I like it, however, my guess is that at the LDE position he won't get much more than 8 or 9 this year but that will still be pretty damn good.


    I am hoping for atleast 5 by the way because of the scheme/his role in it at the LDE position.
    :
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    "This year I definitely plan on going out here and breaking Strahan's record of 22 and 1/2 sacks this year."
    Ok Adrian Peterson.
    : I think he will have a great year but I think he might be getting ahead of himself. Lets just try to stay on the field this year.

    Re: Ray Edwards seeks sack title

    Very lofty goals indeed...but like they say, if you want to be the best, you gotta take on the best...or, in other words, shoot for the stars and you may still hit the moon.
    Half of Strahan's total would be a solid contribution from Ray next season.

    This was what I said would be the configuration when Allen signed and the best combination we could ask for contrary to some who insisted Allen would be the LDE and Robison/Edwards would be the RDE.

    I could see this line having a very significant number of sacks and make a push at the numbers our line put up in 1991.

    Re: Ray Edwards seeks sack title

    As much as I like to see players set their goals high & then play with intensity, Ray is going to have a hard time outdoing Allen.

    It'll come down to whose getting double teamed the most. If they all play well, which I expect them to do, it will be hard for our opponents to cover them all.

    Re: Ray Edwards seeks sack title

    Jeez... This is getting stupid.
    AD's goal is one thing, given that he's already set a impressive single game record.

    If RE beat a single game sack record of 7, I think I wouldn't find his statement foolish.

    Next, TJ will be saying he's looking to beat Mannings record of 49 TD's.

    But maybe he's using the "Little Engine" motivation philosophy.
    All the power too him!

    There's nothing wrong with setting your goals high as long as you don't get disappointed if you don't make them. It's all about positive attitude.

    Would you rather see them put forth a negative Nancy attitude & say "No way am I going to achieve my dream or improve my play, so I'm not going to bother trying"?

    I'm all for setting high goals.
    I just think that setting the highest goal when you have never proven anything, just makes you look foolish.
    I don't want a Vike looking foolish.
    I'm sure the cheeseheads are jumping all over that statement.

    I would be happy if he made double digits.
