    Vikings' Thigpen a quick study, and he has to be

    http://www.startribune.com/510/story/1360919.html
    The play call was about as simple as it gets. Tyler Thigpen, preparing to take his first NFL snap in the fourth quarter of the Vikings' preseason opener Friday night, had his receivers set to run "go [deep] routes." Thigpen's job was to find one of them.

    And then the ball was snapped. The rookie went too deep on his drop, putting pressure on the left tackle. A Rams defensive end flew into the backfield and any thoughts Thigpen had of throwing the ball vanished. Instead, he scrambled to the vacated left side for a 12-yard gain and a first down at the Vikings 40.

    To most everyone watching it looked like a pretty good beginning for Thigpen. Quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers didn't share that sentiment.
