Maybe McKinnie should go into the used refrigerator selling business instead of propositioning to be on a future Pro Bowl squad....shoot, he'll gladly clean out any refrigerator before selling them!

I think they should move Mckinnie to right guard and play Degeare at left tackle.

I sure hope the bonus for making the pro bowl is three figures. If you want proof that voters don't watch O-line play, here it is. Again!

Send him (mcKinnie) to Pittsburg (no offense coach Tomlin), but your did seem to motivate Flozell Adams.
GO STEELERS (vikes fan but still like to aggrevate bandwagaon cowboy fans).......speaking of which, why have there not been any back HCs or long term black QBs in Dallas? Good old boy network segration down there. Makes you wondor why there are so many minority cowboy fans????..just saying)

He says I am a elite left tackle in the game. How much more delusional can a guy that blocks that poorly all year and gives his QB no protection? He is one of the main reasons the Vikes offense fell flat on their face this year. The fact they even want him in the pro bowl after his fiasco last year is beyond me. This guy is a disgrace to the name of professional offensive linemen. Would any other team really want this guy? Doubt it. Maybe they should try him at nose and let him sit in the middle without moving like he does at O tackle.

Ryan Longwell has been named 13th alternate onside-kicker to the pro-bowl. Great now you have 3 participants. Actually you will probably have mre because your players are so well-rested and not bothered by upcoming playoff games (unless they are trying to decide which bar to watch them in)

Bryant "The Matador" McKinnie? That's too funny! Perhaps his "moment of truth" approaches. Skol Vikings.

He's also the "revolving door". Check the tapes. When Favre got leveled, it was often McKinney who got beat without even being touched.

McKinney is the very definition of "slow-footed".

Either he gets replaced OR the Vikings get a left handed QB.

The Matador is not a blind-side guy.

Mckinnie is garbage has no feet if any player with some sort of speed is up against him he gets burned and the QB pays Mckinnie a Pro Bowler again????? he is by far one of the most overrated players in the game I cant wait til they cut him so he lands somewhere else and Allen can burn him for 12 sacks in a single game. do the right thing vikes do the right thing. CUT HIM!!!! use the money your paying him to help sign a true probowl corner named Nnamdi and Prowbowl linebacker Greenway and Pro Bowl Sidney Rice.. Mckinnie= waste of salary cap and space.

Maybe McKinnie is a football fan too who also got tired of Favres diva act and took matters into his own hands (matador)

Interesting theory. Maybe Brad Childress kept him in there because he reallllllllllllllllllllllly wanted TJoke to start. And Zigi kept Klink in there to move him along.......
