    Cook, and Hicks will be assets as backups as the season goes. I'm glad Sullivan has the fundamentals down faily well, I just hope that when he approaches the LOS he can call the correctly locate the MLB, blitzers, and see how the DT line up, so he can call the right line protections

    Ryan Cook has been getting reps at many different spots.

    Bernard Berrian and Sidney Rice have practiced like the starting wide outs they’re expected to be.

    Adrian Peterson is still having problems hanging onto passes and on pass blocking drills.

    Marrdro's comments follow:

    Two good, one bad.

    I thought you said Cook was going to be our starter at RT?
    Well, actually I think I said that it would take PL a few weeks to get the scheme down and Cook might start at first, or something like that.

    Never once do I think I said this guy wasn't a upgrade over Cook, especially in the long term.

    Yah buddy!!

    Excited for this cat.. I was nervous about his slow feet.. Hope it won't be an issue
    That will make Marr jealous. Bye bye Cook.
    LOL, you still don't get it do you?
    I do. Cook is nothing more than a backup. Even at his main position.
    Show me one place were I haven't said the same thing?

    What you don't seem to get is that I hold Cooks play against the Coaches and FO because they didn't have anything better to run out there.

    How can you blame Cook for being the only thing on the roster and hold doing his damn best (even though it wasn't enough) to hold the fort down?

    That, by the way, is one of my biggest beefs with the Chiller.
    Absolutely hated watching a few of these kids learn on the field over the last 3 years.
    Especially when we had a butt load of CAP.

    Marr have u been catching some tibbits about Sully?

    You and I both brought up many times we wished our center would pull

    We weren't quite sure if it was the scheme or if Birk couldn't do it anymore

    Sully has been loookin good doing it I guess.. So I hope we do more!
    I have.


    Problem is, I am waiting for my Buddy Vikes King to let us know when TC gets into the intense 11 on 11 were they are actually doing it in a intense manner.

    Lets see what he does when he has Phat Pat and K-will on his ass a bit, and then mix it up with a lineup of

    JA
    K-will
    Ray or Rob
    Ray or Rob

    See how he reacts to that stuff.

    Marr had a soft spot for Cook as did I.. Because he was a college center who was thrusted into the starting line up playing out of position in a game that would be much faster then college

    I still feel he did decent considering the circumstances.. he struggled against speed rushers but who didn't? And with penelties .. That was my main issue.. I wished he just stayed still before the snap haha

    He is a very very solid back up to have
    I agree.
    He will be a very good back up to have.
    Another cat that people will cheer when/if he leaves, however, People fail to remember that he didn't do half bad at RT, can fill in at RG and play C if needed.
    Dude has big value as a backup.

    OK, I will admit that Hicks grew on me (alot) last year, however, I still would like to see one of the other guys step up.....Radovich, Clark, Daniels.

    Is our line better than it was with Mike "Meathead" Tice?

    BTW, who has the highest paid O-line in the NFL?
    Anyone know?

    Re: Vikes King's Village -- 3rd Annual Training Camp Reports: Updated August 1st

    Can't buy the whole line was my point I guess.
    Hicks was a vet that was brought in by the Chiller.

    Hutch
    McK
    Birk
    Hicks
    ? Learn on the go guy....

    With one question mark, that was reasonable in my book.

    Hard to say.
    I think it is getting there.

    Problem is, right now we are still only looking at the beginning of year 4 after a team has been totally gutted and very little in the way of FA dollars spent on it.

    Lets watch Phil and Sully this year a bit and then I will say yes or no.

    My answer is a definite yes.
    It was as soon as we got Hutch.
    Talk about having a ton of learn as you play guys and not spending money.
    That was Tice/Red's version of a good line.
