Wow McKinnie fast & mobile Why didnt he play like that for the Vikings. McKinnie would let everyone blow by him game after game these last few years. Why is it Every time the Vikes lets a player go he goes & performs well for the other team? Same thing happen with Derren Sharper, Could it be the Vikings coach couldnt motivate them. both of these guys went off to some other team & played better for them then they did for the Vikings. Why i couldnt Frazier motivate these guys to play . Is the coaching that bad in Minnesota. I dont wish any ill will on McKinnie but I hope he dont go on & play good this year like Sharper did with the Saints. We fans need to keep our eyes Frazier. I hope he can get these players on one page & to perform for the Vikings. Go Vikings

sigh. silly, silly viking fans. "bird in the bush must be better, it's bound to be plump!"

"look at the color of that grass why over there! wow, looks really good from way over here where we can't see"

We took a solid position & made it a fiasco. None of the film & certainly none of the statistics merited cutting the fat man.

A very simple explanation. After being cut, he learned that "hey, I'm not irreplaceable". Now he is earning his paycheck as he should have from day one.

Could also be that Frazier was tired of seeing an unmotivated player taking up roster space. In the end it will do both good.

True but so many on here said McKinnie should go for his bad play & they said the same thing about Sharper. I guess the coach listens to the fans When he should know if a player still can play or not. The sun isnt shining on Frazier & the grass is dieing fast under his feet. Go Vikings

Did anyone hear that Frazier is now putting the blame on the offense wow I guess it wasnt him that called only 15 passing plays. I would like to know is it just me that thinks Frazier should take the blame for this loss & for Not having his offense ready to play? Go Vikings

If McKinnie really gave a crap he wouldnt have rolled (literally) into camp as FatBastard from Austin Powers...

Double McCheese's new found motivation won't last. He'll get lazy and sloppy in the second half of the season. Once he gets turn stiled a few times and Flacco gets slammed to the turf, the Ravens fans will see what a dumb pick up he was.

Lets see...mobile flacco does not equal immobile Favre and woefully slow McPuke

Anyone who claims the ravens will regret signing McKinnie has obviously never watched the ravens before. Oher must be the worst left tackle I've ever seen - oher was worse in game 3 of the preseason than Charlie Johnson was against san diego, & that's going a long, long, ways. He's good on the right, though.

As for McKinney, he played Pittsburgh & destroyed James Harrison all game long. This is, of course, the exact same thing that happened the last time McKinney played James Harrision. If it hadn't been for Hutch's responsibility scoring two defensive touchdowns, we'd have won, had home field & a superbowl win - but you care about the game that year when we had given up trying to get home field, the week 15 carolina game, where the coaching staff didn't remove him when he obviously couldn't go. the only game that year he was bad! Last year, he was far & away by every statistical measure I've seen the vikings best offensive linemen - not a hard feat when you look at that roster. Now we got Charlie Johnson, who sometimes almost slows a defender up & usually doesn't allow his defender to tip passes into the air, & then stand underneath them & fair catch it for a pick inside the vikes 10 yard line. usually, but not always.

Yeah, really glad the vikings listened to all the sheep baying. Sure was pleasurable to watch Come on, you know you chant "tee-bow; teee - Booow."

yeah, kinda hits home on why the team's GM (manning) drafted two tackles this year.

I my self like tebow I know so mny others say tebow cant be a starter but I think he can be. the guy makes a lot of plays but the Vikes more or less have a tebow in Webb Fast strong arm both just more time develop. Go Vikings

Webb doesn't have that Gay Beard, terrible accuracy or the limp arm Tebow has. But you couldn't nail Webb up on a cross and pretend he's deity like Tebow because you'd get thrown in jail for a hate crime.

They should just swap in Teblow mid-season so when the Broncos go 0-8 I can laugh...
