    Vikings KFFL Tidbits (12-15 August 2007)

    Vikings | Jackson impressive in preseason game
    Sun, 12 Aug 2007 12:49:59 -0700

    Kevin Seifert, of the Star Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings QB Tarvaris Jackson was focused and decisive during the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 11. Jackson never came close to getting sacked and avoided throwing into coverage. Five of his eight completions went to wide receivers, but he was also willing to check-down to his running back and fullback. Head coach Brad Childress said, "I just thought he had a good command of the offense and that's what you're looking for. Is he looking in the right spot? Is he making the right adjustments, the right reads? He didn't stand back there and nurse the ball. He moved when he had to move, when the pocket broke down, and I thought he was decisive with what he was doing."

    Re: Vikings KFFL Tidbits (12-14 August 2007)

    I'm shocked to see some of the people thata are on the bubble.
    People like Carter, Edwards, Fason, Whitaker, etc...
    That may be a good thing because it says there is depth.

    Wow, a lot of solid young guys that were here last year were on the bubble. You have to give someone like Blue another season, he deserved it.

    What is up with Glenn/Alexander? First Alexander was on IR, then he got cut, then Glenn was injured, then he retired....are neither still with the team?

    Re: Vikings KFFL Tidbits (12-14 August 2007)

    I wouldn't mind seeing Whittaker get cut, not a fan.
    I hope they keep Devonte or Gordon over him anyways.
    Clearly see they are looking for some diamonds in the rough on the WR's, we are trying out about 40 of them.
    With only Wade, Williamson and Rice being slotted on the roster, a couple of these guys should get their chance.
    McMullin, whatever, hope someone steps up and takes his spot.
    Not that I'm against the dude, just like to see an upgrade in talent if possible.

    Blue and Tank are in a tough spot with a deep and talented safety group to compete against.
    Don't see Sharper, Smith or Doss losing spots unless they get injured.
    how many corners will we keep?
    Winfield, Griffin, McAuley should have spots.
    Leaving it up to Edwards, Gordon, Whitaker, Brody, Hawkins and Wishom.
    If its 5 we keep, then Edwards and Gordon seem most probably. Although I've been hearing Brody's name a fair amount in the practice highlights.
