I liked Robison last year,he didn't get enough playing time...they say he's small for a D.E. maybe they sould try him at LB ,he'd be a beast there 265lbs and fast...I think we're gonna beat the packers...need to cover those wr's.. jennings for the packes was on the nfl net work ,showing how easy it was to get open on our boys...i hope they were watching ....have a blow out game db's....go VIKES!!!!!!!!!!

Robison talks a good a game. Let us hope he plays as well.

Robison will get his chance tomorrow, and if all goes well, he can share more of the workload with Jared so Allen can be more of a force in the 4th quarter for the rest of the season. I like Brian, he has a lot of energy and can work his way into a top notch DE with a bit more grooming.
Now if he just replaces that shot put with Aaron, we'll see how far he can toss him.

I am the best, nobody can cover me. The Vikes D is a joke, and I intend to light them up! After all I am Greg Jennings.

Robison should do quite well in place of Allen, but maybe should replace Edwards, who has 1 QB sack(maybe) this season. Also, OldViking is correct when stating the Vikes braintrust(Chilly) should try Robison at Middle linebacker, as his size and speed would remind one of the Bears middle linebacker, Brian Urlacker.. But the stupid Vikings coaches are not smart enough to try something like that.

even if allen can play...i would be tempted to use robison on the other side of the line ( because of his quickness and speed)...the pack likes to roll rogers out away from ja...with robison's agility this may but a wrinkle in those plans and provide some added pressure from that side...GO VIKES!

Urlacher was a safety/linebacker hybrid in college and has run a 4.48 forty. Robison is pretty fast for a lineman, but with his 4.68 forty time, he wouldn't cut the mustard at linebacker with that speed in the NFL.
There are plenty of other issues to beat the Vikings coaches over the head with, Brian Robison at linebacker just isn't one of them.

No, you're not the best by any stretch of the imagination. But, if the Vikings secondary is not offended by these remarks, then they are a joke. They had better step it up and play smart, aggressive football to give us a chance at winning the game...GO VIKES!!!

Yeah, I see some logic in that too. I was having a discussion with a couple people about that very thing night before last. It's interesting to consider.
