    MANKATO —
    The Minnesota Vikings had the best run defense in the NFL last season and new defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier says one of the reasons is because of versatile players such as safeties Darren Sharper and Dwight Smith....

    One question:
    Isn't Tank back from last years injury?
    If so, how is he lookin'?

    Quote from Frazier after second KC scrimmage.

    We did a lot better the second night,” he said. “Their sets are a little bit different than what our offense uses but the second night our guys really adjusted and did a great job of coming off the football. I think we’re headed in the right direction and this coming Friday night (in our first preseason game against St. Louis) we’ll get another good test.”

    You only get three "second nights" a season. I also wonder how Tank is doing.
    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"

    Re: Sharper, Smith are versatile Vikings

    The defensive coordinator said he was encouraged by his unit’s pass rush on Saturday after a so-so performance Friday in the Vikings’ scrimmages against the Kansas City Chiefs.
    That's starting to sound a bit more promising. We'll see Friday night.

    3 days to Vikings pre-season football!
