    Re: Most recent Vikings Training Camp updates...!

    All right, I heard ya.

    I got desperate to hear some News, and read my last "post"...I found some. General stuff at that
    until later today when we hear some "on field" reports that I hope to read here.

    How to deal with Training Camp injuries is going to be more interesting than ever in recent times.

    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.

    Read this article from SI - Numbers game: Shrinking roster size having growing ramifications

    Navigating the pitfalls of training camp is a numbers game for NFL teams, but this year a degree of difficulty has been added that has wide-ranging ramifications in the eyes of the league's coaches and personnel decision-makers: The new 80-man training camp roster limit. ... ( the link here )

    * By the way, last year when the Vikings drafted Rufus Alexander (good player, ex-OLB Oklahoma),
    it was my opinion that they brought him in just like usually happens when you bring in a new Superstar...an old friend for a guy like Adrian Peterson. I have not heard 1 word about him lately.
    What do you hear about Rufus Alexander?

    Rufus was on IR all last season, I believe.
    But he's in camp, battling with the likes of Erin Henderson for a backup slot.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Please keep this thread moving with NEWS from today ( every day )!

    As of 1PM CDT I did not find anything out there. Any first hand observations from Camp?
    Nothing like starting a thread that has no content.
    It's kind of like saying, "hey, I'm a lazy bastard and am interested in this topic and I want all you peasants to find information for me."
    Nothing wrong with delegating.

    It sucks about Edwards.
    Hoping for big things with him this year.
    I think Mitchell is okay and Robison can be a beast once he learns the ins and outs of the position.

    He is also my friend on Facebook...makes me feel really special every day when I wake up.
    It screams "I'm important because I'm friends with some random dude I've never met who got drafted by the Vikings"
    I feel bigger.

    On a serious note...lets hope Edwards pulls out of this.
    I don't want DE to be a position of concern already.

    [size=12pt]Five things to watch for as Minnesota Vikings training camp opens today[/size]
    The quarterback still has to prove himself, and the newly acquired star has to make the defense better. Those are just two of the challenges as the Vikings open camp on a season of considerable promise.

    Re: Most recent Vikings Training Camp updates...!

    I am listening to the live practice on the FAN right now, and PA has been fooled on the play action TWICE.
    He says that AD is running very well!

    Love it!

    So far, all of the QBs have taken snaps under center.
    Frerrotte was just lit up after holding the ball for about 8 seconds.

    Bollinger is really selling the play action too.
    I think he is really fighting for a roster spot, but he would need to be amazing to keep it IMHO.

    TJack has scrambled 3 times so far, for 24 yards.

    Not sure what to think of this.
    In Training Camp, I would like to see him finding his receivers.

    24-yards is a big deal in the NFL... that's an average of 8-yards a carry. I'll take it.
