That's why these guys get the big money. Playing at the NFL level is one thing. Playing at the NFL level while in pain is something else.

It is average, there are far worse out there.

It is very difficult to grade that group of 5 idea-almost every team seems to be looking for help for that area of their team.

If the RB, WR, and QB don't do what they are supposed to do then the line is gonna look bad.

Favre only gets sacked an average of once a game and AP is at the top of the league rushing the ball, they must be doing something right. Vikes could definitely use an upgrade though, especially at RT,CENTER AND PROBABLY LT as well, McKinnie is aging. If the draft started tomorrow I would think they would go after QB first and a lineman in the second, just my opinion.

Hutch isn't any spring chicken either for that matter but is still a great pulling guard.

Let me qualify MY above post. Not trying to discredit anyone's opinion here, I know a lot of fans are down on the line but let me add my rebuttal Your Honor..........

I looked up some stats on where the Vikes o-line ranks in terms of the league. One NFL site had them at 8th in the NFC and 15th overall based on several criteria including experience, rushing over each side of the line, short yardage situations and a few others.

Favre is actually being sacked 2 times a game, 22 overall sacks to be exact this season.

He has been hit 64 times.

McNabb has been sacked 32 times and hit 71 times and Cutler has been sacked 41 times-just to name a couple other QB's and where they are on this scale.

“any questions?”

I think he's just counting the money he never really earned here.

I would be happy to not catch passes just like him for half of what he's making.
