    Re: The Secret of Robison's Success

    Go B-Rob!!!
    We just may end up with a pretty decent pass rush after all...not from our first rounders, but from a pair of mid rounders who have a whole lot more WANT then the guys taken higher!

    I've been following his track and field career for quite some time, so I knew him from that. He's really explosive, explosive enough to propel a 16pound ball of steel nearly 70 feet.

    I'm pumped to see him on passing downs gunning for the QB.



    The farthest I EVER threw was around 45 feet in high school, and I thought I was MF Hercules after that!

    Robison is a complete 100% amazing pick up in the draft.
    As soon as I read all the things scouts and former coaches were saying, I knew we made a hell of a pickup when we traded up for him.
    I'm lucky if I can throw it far enough to prevent breaking my toes.
    Thats a heck of a throw.

    I'd only try something like that now if I was drunk and Wildwoman keeps on eye on me so that my toes stay safe.
    ;D

    That combination of light weight speed with explosive strength has me stoked as well. And I don't think it will take 2 to 3 years to shine. This guy is hungry!

    I'm excited about him too.
    Third downs on D are going to be a lot more exiting with him in the mix.

    Re: The Secret of Robison's Success

    With Robison's success and James coming back I am really getting excited about this defense. I think keeping guys fresh by subbing them in and out is going to be very successful for the vikings.

    Frazier also indicated today that defensive end Erasmus James will probably suit up and play against the Seahawks on Saturday. James missed most of the 2006 season with a knee injury. This will be James' first pre-season appearance.
    sweeeeeeet! I can't wait to see what he can do.

    And in HS its a 12 pound shot.

    I threw about 50 feet, btw.
    Uh, in my small town where I lived in Iowa, we used whatever we had on hand for our track and field.
    The ball was ancient (probably made by the Mayans) and it weighed probably around only 10 lbs. or less.
    So, 50 ft. at 12 pounds is amazing.
    70 feet at 16
    seems damn near unreal.

    :

    Isn't that the beauty of this thing. You have a rotation of beasts at defensive end this year. One injury should not be near as detrimental as it appeared to be, last year.
    We all miss the great Viking pass rushers of the past. I'm not saying anyone is great yet. But I'm confident we will see some pressure on the opposing QB's this year.
