    MANKATO, Minn. -- For the first time in years, the Minnesota Vikings have done nothing in training camp but … well … train.

    I have to agree that thee sems to be a little more focus in traing camp from the coaches to the players. It is more business like. Now if we casn just get rid of that damn injury bug we will be cool

    Hmm...football?
    Is that the sport where you use a mallet to hit the ball through the hoops?

    That is a novel idea. Wonder if it will work

    Thanks for the read my friend.

    2. Has Adrian Peterson learned how to run against stacked defensive fronts?

    No matter how much Jackson improves, the Vikings know opposing defenses always will focus on Peterson. During the offseason, Peterson and running backs coach Eric Bieniemy studied ways to attack eight-man fronts -- utilizing patience and knowledge of zone blocking schemes to find the hole. Peterson appeared to be his early 2007 self during a recent training camp practice, galloping through the Vikings' first-team defensive line on several occasions.
    What, has this guy bought into the concept that there is another way to beat 8 man fronts instead of the proverbial cliche of "We have to be able to pass" .

    Isn't there some yutz on here trying to convince us of that very fact.

    (I do love this site) ;D

    Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell is calling plays this summer from the sideline instead of the press box, allowing him more interaction with Tarvaris Jackson.
    Who's calling the plays?

    ;D
    ;D
    ;D

    LOL, I almost made a thread during the Seachickens game when they kept cutting to the Chiller yelling at the refs when we were on offense.
    The title of the thread was gonna be "Who's calling the plays when the Chiller is yelling at the refs".

    I hope that is one of the cliche's that goes completely away this year.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    but you can't deny, that being able to pass makes things much much easier to run right?
