    Berrian makes highlight grab on Jackson toss...

    Oh, forget it

    Big defensive tackle Pat Williams brought some comic relief to his fellow linemen during one drill. The linemen were supposed to maneuver between three dummies before turning upfield. Williams slipped and fell on his backside on both of his attempts. He gave the dummy a good kick the second time as his teammates roared with laughter.

    hahahahah thats awesome, i love pat

    Childress: NFL knows where I stand on charges
    July 27th, 2008 – 5:08 PM by Judd Zulgad


    Vikings coach Brad Childress said following today’s practice that he had no immediate reaction to reports by ESPN and Sports Illustrated in which Packers quarterback Brett Favre said he has talked to Childress but that it was never about playing for the Vikings. ...

    The Vikings held a light, one-hour installation practice Sunday, which allowed the players to recover physically from Saturday's two practices and also to gear up for today's first practice in full pads...

    Thanks for the updates.


    Seems to me they are taking it a bit easier at the beginning of camp this year.
    Maybe its because they have a good core of returning players with so few spots to fill this year which equates to less to put in/ramp up to.

    Anyone else getting that feeling?

    MANY Teams may be going light on their players...because of the 80 man Roster limit. Some of the best Coaches, and best Teams used to bring in 100, 120, or more players...and find some gems.
    With the newer, smaller 80 man Training Camp rosters more guys will have more reps. IF they can
    stay healthy, and not get worn down that will be GOOD for the younger "on the bubble" guys.
    On the other hand, it may make more people take reps when they are injured, and thereby
    prolong their injuries. Just about all of these guys get beat up in Training Camp. A few others like
    Ray Edwards coming in hurt, it will now mess with the "chemistry" more than ever.

    maybe, but we don't prefer having McCauley positioned on the outside.
    I have a feeling that Winfield just wants to crush some guy going over the middle.
    I don't think his pass coverage skills are good enough to cover some of the better slot recievers in the game like Welker, etc.

    Do you really believe that what you saw out of McCauley last year wasn't just growing pains instead of the type of CB he will be as he matures?

    I for one think he will be fine outside covering his zone in this scheme.
