    Performance points to need at tackle

    [size=13pt]Performance points to need at tackle[/size]

    The uneven play of incumbent right tackle Ryan Cook brings free agency and the draft into play as the Vikings look to shore up the position.

    INDIANAPOLIS - Vikings officials weren't exactly forthcoming on the topic, but it's a safe bet that the right tackle position is near the top of the team's wish list for an upgrade....

    Re: Performance points to need at tackle

    Thanks for the read my friend.

    Couple of problems with a article like this.......

    1.
    They ruin your day and remind you that Gross and Carey signed.

    2.
    They never really break down R and L Tackles when they talk about them.
    Beatty, Loadholt and Meredith were all LT's.
    Why would anyone think they could come in and start at RT in our blocking scheme?

    Well I have seen some thoughts of people who think we could bring in a LT and then move McKinnie to RT - so is that a feasible option or would he want a contract extension for having to learn a new position?

    Ya got me there my friend.
    Maybe RT isn't that hard.
    Birk played it for a spell as well.

    I've seen that as well.
    Problem for me is then you have both T's learning under fire again.
    I for one am tired of watching people learn on the field.

    well that's true but as McKinnie is an elite player - as we often hear - then it's not quite like having a rookie out there, but I take your point

    Not many have patience for him right now.


    I am one of a select few who doesn't blame him for getting thrown to the wolves and for not having anything better on the roster than him.
