I think Cook should be starting and not Sullivan.. He is bigger blocker and tougher to get around, just my thoughts...

Cook looked great yesterday. He stays on his blocks and finishes. Look how good the running game looked. Sullivan sucks and to many times I see him not sticking on his blocks. If chilldress wants to continue to win this year cook must be the center.

Returning Ryan Cook to center should have been a no brainer...why did Childress have Herrera playing center in pre-season when Cook was more logical. Cook did a good job. Thank you Ryan.

I really keyed on him when I saw Sullivan go down. Never understood why they drafted Sullivan when they had someone with center experience on the roster. The dig against him is he was too tall for a NFL center becuase he'd block the QB's vision. Cook plays squat a low which gives him good leverage on D line and keeps him out of Brett's line. He also pulled pretty damn quick. I'm not saying Matty Birk quick but he was way out in front on the run that got called back for the lame holding call on the WR.

The biggest knock on Cook when he played RT was his bonehad false starts. Kind of hard to get a false start when you are the center.

Cook did a good job, don't you think coach Childress? Injury happens. No excuse but another humongous lineman could help protect and block. So why not get help. Also Vikes need better field positions. Dear receiving corp - get your act together - PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, AND MORE PRACTICE. If V. Jackson trade is not going to happen, can't the Vikings design one play for Joe Webb?

loadholt had a couple of false starts, but i'm begining to expect that. i have to admit, i didn't like getting cook for a 5th round pick on the culpepper trade. but it really worked out. where did Artis Hicks go?

Sullivan is a marshmellow. Cook should start. Chilly, give up on the zone blocking. Our guys are too big. Frasier for HC.
