    Ahh the benifits of a properly executed Zone Blocking Scheme.


    Not trying to take anything from CT as he was amazing yesterday, however, wonder how much AD would have got?

    Anyone know how long this line will be together?
    McKinnie, Hutch, and Cook should all be long term (multi year contracts).
    What about Birk and Hererra?
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Birks age is a bigger concern then his contract.
    Because of his age I don't think they'll have much trouble keeping him in MN.
    I'm hoping for another 3 to 5 years out of the big guy in the middle.
    Let this new scheme mature so we can start bringing in younger guys.
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.

    Lets not forget Cook was drafted to eventually replace Birk, not be our starting left tackle. Not that any contribution to the team is a problem.

    I am pretty sure the thought was to turn him into a RT right off the bat.

    Coming out of college it was said that he was pertty versatile and could play most placed on the line. He was a center in college, but his size (I think he's like 6'7) makes him better suited as a tackle.
