    New TE Visanthe Shiancoe has had an up-and-down camp thus far....

    Thanks Singer.

    As I've said, gonna be some good and some bad.
    Hope they can minimize the bad.
    :

    Snippets from the quarterback transition

    Since training camp began, Jackson has thrown passes over his receiver's head. He has one-hopped a few balls. He's fumbled snaps and gotten sacked. And then, he reminds everyone why the coaching staff thinks so highly of him.

    During the otherwise forgettable afternoon practice, Jackson spotted WR Bobby Wade with a step on CB Ronyell Whitaker down the middle of the field. Confidently, Jackson threw a beautiful spiral over Whitaker's head and right into Wade's arms, who did not have to break stride on his way to an 80-yard touchdown.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    TC is all about getting reps. Good and Bad, every snap taken will help these guys get their game better. Coaches will find what we do best and will tailor our O, and D, to bring out the best in players

    Unacceptable

    How bad did the Vikings offense look at times during a 45-minute live-hitting portion of practice Tuesday inside Blakeslee Stadium?....

    E.J. Henderson was quietly making his return to middle linebacker until Wednesday morning. In a live red-zone drill, Henderson burst through the middle of the offensive line and dropped RB Adrian Peterson for a loss.....

    Greenway shows speed

    Weak-side linebacker Chad Greenway, who tore an anterior cruciate ligament in the exhibition opener last season, doesn't appear to have lost a step...

    Offensive highs and lows

    Kansas City DE Jared Allen, who has 18 sacks in the past two seasons, got around LT Bryant McKinnie a few times during team drills...

    I hope we don't sustain any more injuries tonight. Chandler will be OK, but I hope Mozes isn't hurt too bad. A bright note is Kluwe booming the stuffing out of the ball. I hope he can stay healthy too. Pinning a team back with a good punt (as long as he doesn't out-kick the coverage) is a important part of special team punt defense.

    That all depends were the coverage is at the time of the kick. If they are on their own 35, I hope he out kicks them by 20 yards.

    With the run backs we have been allowing teams, booting it into the endzone isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    You said it Singer.... I don't know why our coverage teams are so scary to watch year in and year out. We should field some better tacklers this year, and hopefully get some hats to the ball in a hurry.
