Bishop is a vike

A good sigining IMO, Bishop was a fine player for the Pack before missing last season and leading tackler for the Pack in 2011. If he returns to form he will be a good addition. Plus the Vikes have cap room to take a chance on a 1yr deal.

I will be surprised to hear excitement from the viking fan topics regulars around here though. For the most part I remember them dissing Bishop when I mentioned his return this year should help the Packers improve on defense. They disagreed and didnít seem to think he would have any impact at all. Now he is a viking so do you think those same people will think he wonít have an impact for the vikings. I think he will, I hope he doesnít but I think he will. I mean the vikings donít even have a MLB so it must help some unless Henderson takes the job but then they donít have a OLB opposite Greenway. He can the very least add some much needed depth at LB.

We have a top 10 defense Bishop is as talented linebacker we have. This put more pressure on Ponder to bring is A game EVERY game this year winning at least 1 in the playoffs or the Ponder experiment has failed.

Bishop will take over as left linebacker He played in a 34 defense its going to take time to learn the 43 defense. Bisnop is good on passing downs but he didn't do much at stoping the run. Henderson stops the run better but isn't as good on the pass. What the vikings got Bishop for was insurance in case something happens to Henderson & I am guessing Cole doesnt have what it takes to be a starter. We might see the vikings letting Cole go I cant see him on the 53 man roster now with the Bishop signing.
