    Unnamed Opponent Slams McKinnie, Other Vikings

    The Sporting News is busy counting down to training camp by breaking down each roster and trying to provide a unique preview of sorts.

    For example, middle linebacker Jasper Brinkley has their vote for breakout player of the year for the purple and gold. Also, they predict that without Favre there is virtually no chance of the Vikings playing in February.

    The most interesting portion of the story, however, is under the “Opponent’s View” section. In this section, an unnamed opponent gives his take on the Vikings and it isn’t pretty:

    Re:Unnamed Opponent Slams McKinnie, Other Vikings

    You know what, their offensive line is not that good. They’re way overrated. It’s unbelievable. If they didn’t have Brett Favre, the number of times he gets them out of trouble is amazing. Left tackle Bryant McKinnie, it’s a joke that he made the Pro Bowl. A joke. …

    “They have excellent speed at receiver. They have good balance at tight end—Visanthe Shiancoe can make big plays down the field, and Jimmy Kleinsasser isn’t what he used to be but still gives you a good day’s work. Jeff Dugan is solid. … Adrian Peterson is a little bit feast or famine. I think it will hurt them that they lost Chester Taylor because that was an excellent 1-2 punch. …

    “Defensively, they’re solid. They do a good job stopping the run, and they get after the quarterback. Ray Edwards is a good player; Jared Allen is an excellent pass rusher. But Kevin Williams, he’s the best guy they have up front. At linebacker, I don’t know what’s going to happen with E.J. Henderson and his injury. Chad Greenway is a playmaker. …

    “In the secondary, Antoine Winfield is a tough, physical tackler and by far their best guy back there. They don’t have a weak defense, but the lowest part of their defense is their secondary. That’s not to say they’re bad. I just don’t think they’re at the same level as the front.”
    That seems 100% accurate to me

    Yup! Favre bailed them out last year and he will do it this year. It is sad that some don't see the huge difference between him and TJ.

    Other than maybe the Winfield comment about being the best guy back there along with the Chester Taylor loss will hurt us comment, yes, I agree.

    I think some see the difference, just a few of those some feel that this team can win without him, just like we lost with him.

    This source sounds like the same one that said AP insisted on keeping Tahi.

    Sporting News has really gone in the tank. Great, an unnamed opponent.

    So you think that TJ, MW and Sheppard are better than Winny?

    Based on what? (Last I checked, Griffen wasn't back there, and isn't expected to be)

    I think it is spot on as well.

    Last time I checked, Whinny isn't either.

    As to the crop, I was talking about Griff so you make a good point. As I think about it now that you made that point, I think Lito is better. Sapp and AA seemed to fit in well last year, especially in the pass protection area.

    I will give you run support in Whinny lane, but again, I want my CB to pass defend first, help in the run second.
