    I know many may not agree with that but what happens if McKinnie gets suspended by the commissioner for what might have happened in Miami?

    OLT Bryant McKinnie’s hearing for a criminal case, in which he faces four separate charges related to a fight outside a Miami nightclub, was continued back in June and is scheduled for a court date of Sept. 24 — three days after the Vikings face the Panthers in Minnesota during Week Three of the season...

    What my point is we are just a couple of injuries or lack of a contract away from having an average offensive line at best with no depth.
    A very valid point indeed!
    I have many of the same feelings.

    A huge overstatement. To be more worried about the OL than Jackson is ludicrous.

    I will admit depth is lacking but still not very worried.

    Re: Vikings O-line more of a concern than Jackson?

    in the first article the dude kinda scared me, bringing up what happened to the rams last year, and he has a very good point. Our depth is pretty bad, maybe not bad, but unproven, we have Hicks and some guys who dont have much or any experience playing in the NFL. I actually agree with him that it is a bigger concern than Tjack, cause lets say BMac gets suspended for a couple games, and Hutch gets a hurt, we would have Hicks and, maybe Jon Sullivan starting on the left side, and that worries me. I still dont understand why we didnt take Carl Nicks in the 6th rd.

    That is your opinion. Nothing more as is mine.

    What is actually ludicrous is to continually contend that there is nothing wrong with an OL that had had Johnson,
    Holcolm, Bollinger, and Jackson all under center and has consistently produced the same results. Pressure from the ends by underwhelming pass blocking at the OT position that creates an environment where the QB has no time to get set, make reads or get in any sort of a comfort zone. I am sure when Bollinger came in that game and got sacked 3 consecutive times and never got a chance to set his feet, that the problem was his and the line did nothing wrong. I disagree.

    That is 100% on the OL.

    You will also notice that the time you state in another post that the line started doing well and put us on a winning streak was also the time we went to a 2 TE formation much more often where we kept the TE's in to bail out the OT's and buy the QB a little more time. When the line can pass block without keeping in extra blockers to help out those who cannot do their job by themselves we will have a much better passing game whether the QB is Jackson, Frerrotte, Booty, Farve, mcNabb or whoever the flavor of the day is.

    If the line cannot block without extra help, it doesn't matter who is under center, just like it hasn't so far, because nobody will be successful.

    The OL should absolutely by more of a concern than any QB we line up back there. Especially when Mac is suspended. If Cook does not step up, both ends will be weak with Hicks starting. This is a major concern. What good is any QB when they are on the ground or not having enough time to make plays?!
