Center may be the most difficult position in football. It's good to hear Sullivan is already well ahead in the mental part of the game - directing the line - as well as drawing high praises from Viking Staff for his inside strength. It's an early sign of a successful draft. Go Vikings; Big Year Ahead!

Great, let's see him put some pressure on the perennial pro bowler Matty B. Does anyone else want to break the bank resigning Birk just so we can say he played his whole career here?
Matt's reputation has preceded him, but I would rather see pro bowl production out of that position. IF Birk is back to his pre hip problem playing days, I'd be glad to sign him, but last year's performance underscores his drop from the elite.

Agree with the previous posts here.

Also:

- Pat's right. The defense might do just that: Crush GB.

Watching last year's game at Lameblow, McCarthy found some running room with Grant, and stuck with it. The Vikings stayed with the pass first defense, even though Grant was gashing us seemingly at will, so to make a longer story shorter, I want to see game time adjustments, in a more expedient fashion.
If Tarvaris keeps up his present learning curve, the only real question mark about this team is the coaching. Chilly has lightened up, and the players seem to be responding to his personality in a more positive way. How long will Ziggy stay with Brad if this team doesn’t make the playoffs?

We need a huge offensive lineman that can make big holes for Adrian Peterson, a catching tight end, and a durable defensive end to compliment Jared Allen in the other side.

Hey, thanks pal. You too. I see it as Frazier's fault letting Grant run like that.- Yet, like a General losing the battle...- You can't blame the Colonels. Soooo... It's ultimately The Chillster's fault....Bet you Grant doesn't do it again.

The Vikings have seemingly done an excellent job in building depth through this year's draft.

It says something about where this team is when rookies out of the last two drafts were plugged into the starting line-up and this year's draft will yield nothing more than solid depth behind the incumbent starters.

They have very good veteran starters and strong youthful depth...As a Vikings fan you gotta love the blueprint of this team!

Wow a former Norte Dame player that might actually have talent. He will have to bring his best if he wants to work on the same line has BIG HUTCH(GO BLUE!!) I am glad to see a good back up for a very important role. Now we need to have are rookie saftey step it up to fill the 30 million dollar hole that williams left. Why can't preseason only be two games or not at all. GO VIKINGS!!!!!!!
