There are lots of Viking fans with nothing better to do on a Saturday night than sit and watch millionaire football players practice. Also, Donovan McNabb is really good for training camp attendance. Imagine if Favre had ever shown up for camp. They might’ve had to install extra seating.
The new offense has a ways to go. Leslie Frazier wants us not to worry though. “As our offense puts more things in, they’ll catch up in that regard. But in most cases, early in camp, the defense is usually a little ahead,” the coach reassured. Adrian Peterson put it this way: “We’re putting in a new offense, I don’t think the defense is putting in a new defense.”
We have some feisty undrafted rookies. David Akinniyi and Ed Barham got into it during a 9-on-7 drill, then Seth Olson and draft pick DeMarcus Love joined the fray. Frazier said of the dust-up, “I don’t mind seeing it, as long as we know how to get it ended as quickly as we did.” Yeah, wouldn’t want a rookie scrum spilling into the seats. Be a shame for one of our young guys to get knifed by a drunk.
Charlie Johnson can’t block Jared Allen. Actually we already knew that. Now we know it more.
Jaymar Johnson looks sharp. Fun fact: “Look Sharp” was an album by the ’80 Scandanavian pop duo Roxette.
Everson Griffen wants to become more powerful. In an athletic sense, not a supervillain-conquering-the-world sense.
