That's really high.

No Griffen today.

Cook working off to the side.

Sherels and Morgan essentially just stretched.

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

Mike Zimmer said on KFAN's "X's and O's" that safety Andrew Sendejo was told by an official at Green Bay that he was flagged for unnecessary roughness even though his form and delivery was correct by rules standards. "He (Sendejo) said, ‘What could I have done different?'" Zimmer said on KFAN. "He ...

Re: 2018 Season General Thread (News, Notes, Interviews, etc)

Dalvin didn't practice today (updated from earlier). Team doesn't seem concerned.

Griffen didn't practice (knee).

Elflein practiced in full. :v):

Re: Vikings vs. Bills Pregame Thread

@eric_j_thompson
Through two games, the #Bills are allowing scores on 50% of opponents' drives and forcing turnovers on on 3.8% of opponents' drives. Both are league worst.

They have also scored the second fewest points and are tied for the most points allowed.

Re: Brian O'Neil surprises

All I know is that his pass protection against Philly (and others throughout the year) gave me nightmares I'm not sure any offensive lineman (or Vikings player period) showed up against Philly. I thought he held up most of the time OK (in the pass game). We can certainly use an upgrade if we can fi...

Re: Brian O'Neil surprises

That's disconcerting. Hill is weaker in the run game than pass, usually.

No.
Blocking at guard typically is very different than blocking at RT
Why is run blocking all that different at guard than at tackle?

Re: Brian O'Neil surprises

Nope. He moves well coming in at the end of the game, vs a guy who probably didn't know much about him while he was armed with game film about the guys tendencies. He had almost every advantage in the book. I still do not like how he deals with bull rushes. This is the NFL and defenses are going to...

Re: Brian O'Neil surprises

Run blocking will still be an issue on his side. up the middle should be better and running to the left. Remmers and him are poor at it. I would feel even better with Reiff, Herandez, Elfein, Jones, Remmers I also didn't miss that the Packers 2nd round corner scored this week while looking solid. R...

Re: 2018 Season General Thread (News, Notes, Interviews, etc)

I like what I've seen from Parry so far. Johnson is more of a 3 tech and would be behind Richardson. Parry is more of a NT and would be behind Joseph I would think. Maybe not. It's either Parry, Jaleel or Holmes. I would think it's Parry. Unless they are cutting another position because a DT is ban...

Brian O'Neil surprises

Thread breaking down some of his pass-blocking snaps. I thought he was surprisingly solid. I'm pleased by his early progress. There might be something there, guys.
