Continuing our countdown with the man at #13…
The Vikings have a lot of question marks going into 2014, but at least they know they can count on their kicker.
Blair Walsh will be accurate. He will be long. He will be clutch. He will send kickoffs into the end zone.
And if you’re a special teams coach with arguably bigoted opinions about homosexuals who becomes embroiled in a controversy, he will give you a ringing character endorsement.
Blair Walsh does it all. And he does it without saying anything that upsets anyone. Ever.
He just goes out and does his job. He is as solid and steady as they come.
When the 2014 season kicks off, with all its uncertainty, at least the Vikings will know that the man doing the literal kicking off is someone they can rely on. In every way.
What a genius Rick Spielman was for finding this guy and drafting him.
Blair Walsh the non-confrontational Georgia Bulldog is the #13 Viking of 2014.
