    Vikings: Punter Kluwe has been the long and short of it this year

    [size=13pt]Vikings: Punter Kluwe has been the long and short of it this year[/size]

    Chris Kluwe tied a team record for touch in the season opener and set a team record for length in the second game.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    He's actually really valuable for the vikes. When our offense has struggled, he's there to put it inside the 20.

    And, I'm sure you all remember how we wanted to get rid of him in the pre-season? :

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    Not ALL of us wanted to get rid of him.

    I was down on Longwell, but he seems to have improved since opening weekend. I'm hoping to see 14 more weeks of it.

    You're correct Singer. NOT ALL!
    I was as disappointed in Longwell as you were.
    What the heck causes this to happen -
    Looking terrible in pre-season and then coming up big in the season. I know that both Longwell and Kluwe are crediting Childress with not having them practice as much and keeping their legs "fresher." But that was going on in pre-season, too.
    Funny how things work out isn't it!
    For all we know TJ may be a pro-bowl QB someday, too.
    ;D (Well, that may be going a bit too far.)
