    i really want erin to start he is pretty much the same player as EJ. He gets lots of tackles, makes some big plays and is exciting to watch. The only difference is that EJ is better than Erin at all those things.
    Heh, not quite... EJ is one of the best in the game....
    Though he seems to have similar instincts to EJ (which also at times got him out of position in his earlier years)... not sure the physical talent level is there, but he IS exciting to watch.

    I'll start by saying, ah, he isn't qualified...yet.
    Not even close...not even close.
    We need to find a better solution that a Rookie UDFA.
    To be sure, this is a solid position with respect to the starters, but not anywhere near our a deep position.
    I like Erin, predicted he'd make the Team, but he's a ST'er for now; and, he can use some work there too.

    MLB is a sirious problem with EJ out.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    As a matter of fact, I do know

    +1...The concussion is a big reason, but the biggest is that he needs more experience.
    Man I miss seeing EJ flying around the LOS.

    EJ took a few years to learn.
    He looked dreadful at times in his younger years.
    He has grown into a great MLB.
    I can't say whether Erin is ready or not.
    I'm not at the practices to see his progress.
    I do know that we are not that deep in the MLB position.
    DT was signed to help out.
    He knows the system and he should be a big help on STs.

    Unfortunately Vinny C. will be seeing some game time.
    I do like the way Leber has played in the Mike.
    However, he has said himself he isn't totally comfortable there yet.

    Re: why isn't erin henderson replacing his brother as starting MLB?

    Two things.....

    a.
    Thor is correct, Erin isn't a MLB.
    Funny how some miss little things like that.
    :


    b.
    Why is everyone beeeeyyyyatching about Vinny or even Herron for that matter. Has there been that big of a drop off to warrant some of the criticism?

    The signing of DT is a good move by Spielman and should give us another body in the rotation but I don't look to see him starting any time soon.
    Gonna take some time for him to get back up to game shape.
    Additionally, we need Erin to get back in the rotation as well from his injury.
    Pretty soon our guys will wear down like we saw the DL wear down last year.

    Until then, get behind the backups that are doing an OK job, the two starters (Chad and Ben) who are playing thier asses off.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I will always support our players but I will always say waht I see.
    I do think Chad has stepped up and so has Ben.
    Vinny C. on the other hand haslooked lost at times.
    I hope the addition of DT will add more depth and rotation to keep players crisp.
    It will have to be MLB by committee and I hope they all step up.

    a.
    All of our LB positions are supposed to be interchangeable.
    Every LB is supposed to play any position at any time, or am I the only one that remembers Chilly saying that?

    b.
    Vinnie has been awful on ST (almost everyone has), and he's the guy that missed the tackle on Kevin Smith's 50 yard run.
    Herron has been doing a decent job since he's been there, but that game would have been a shutout if EJ wasn't hurt.

    Erin was a second round talent that went undrafted due to concerns with his knee.
    His talent level is definitely higher than your typical UFA.

    He has all the size and skills to play any LB position, and I'd like to see him play this year.
