    Vikings expect Shiancoe to leaving the past far behind

    [size=14pt]Vikings: Leaving the past far behind[/size]

    http://www.startribune.com/vikings/story/1343269.html
    Visanthe Shiancoe knows there are names easier to pronounce than "vi-sahn-tee SHANK-oh." So upon introduction the other day, Shiancoe simplified things a bit.

    "Just call me Shank-dog," he said with a smile.

    If only everything else about Shiancoe's arrival in Minnesota were so straightforward...

    I think I will just keep on calling him V-Shi.

    I'll continue to call him "Question Mark", or "Unproven".

    That being said, I think he'll turn out to be a nice addition though.

    I guess you'll be calling a lot of players that including all our draft picks.

    I do every year. ;D

    But I have a good feeling about this year's crop of rookies.
    Take it for what it's worth.

    Let's just hope that the "Shank-Dog" can fill that proverbial jersey (#81) !!!!!!
    There have been a couple of great Vikes that wore that same #.

    As much as I liked Wiggins, he was a lumbering freelance route runner. Shiancoe is a more disaplined route runner, and will be much harder to cover. This will enable our recievers to get some one on one coverage. This is going to be a much improved version of Chilli's KAO. I'm ready for it too. Last year was aggrevating.

    As much as I want to believe that, so far there has been little evidence produced to support it aside from the speculation of hopeful fans.I sure hope everything magically comes together this year and leads to a great season but so far it looks like we are going to have a long hard road.
