    Re: Vikings' rookie Jasper Brinkley just brings it

    "And when he gets there, he gets there with attitude," said Henderson, noting that he hasn't seen any Vikings rookie hit as hard as Brinkley. "Not at linebacker, not since I came in here."
    Thats what I want to see, a LB wanting to take the head off any ball-carrier stupid enough to be in his immediate area. He will definitely be a player to watch out for this season.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Re: Vikings' rookie Jasper Brinkley just brings it

    I saw the title and the first thing that came to my mind was another rookie that loved to hit, Greg Blue!


    We all like those guys that can hit.
    We just hope that they make the team.

    We have heard a lot of good things about our rookies.
    Hope they all live up to the hype.

    But the thing about Blue was that he really didn't have a spot in the Pros. He was a good hitter, but that was about it for his position. The Safety spot is getting away from only hitters, they have to be able to cover the field also. Brinkley, on the other hand, is a true LB.

    Jasper and Casper. Cute.

    This LB unit just keeps getting better. I like.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    LB'ers in our scheme need to have good coverage abilities as well.
    Love to see a hardhitting LB, but if he is going to backup EJ,
    he better have some range in coverage over the middle as well.

    Re: Vikings' rookie Jasper Brinkley just brings it

    JB was great in south carolina, but had a few injuries here and there and didnt have the help around him to make him shine.
    he'll have his growing pains just like most rookies.


    had an hour conversation about him with a SC fan i work with.
    he had nothing but good thing to say about him.

    Plus got paid to talk football it was great lol.
