Eric Thompson @eric_j_thompson
#Vikings offense observations:
Using a lot of misdirection and screens to catch the defense off guard
Also lining up Rudolph out wide by himself to create mismatches. Example: shifted to get Alexander lined up on him in the slot.
Bradford completes a corner TD. Tries to chest bump Zimmer, who definitely wasn't ready for it.
Michael Floyd is pretty incredible to watch in person. Very strong off the line, no wasted movement in routes.
Two players having nice days on the second team D: Odenigbo and Anthony Harris. Odenigbo getting around edge, Harris with some nice PBUs.

Treadwell didn't practice after his scuffle with Exum. Was out there and smiling but didn't participate.

I've heard that before from him.

Riley Reiff is dealing with a back injury, Mike Zimmer indicated today. "Felt a lot better today. Might be a few more days before returning."

Pretty sure it's pass break ups.

Nah, I'm pretty sure it stands for Peanut Butter Ukuleles.

Hopefully they are getting the drama out of the way early this season. Oh wait, this is the Vikings. What we are witnessing barely counts as a dress rehearsal.
