1. Sharrif Floyd

Floyd has not been bad by any stretch, he just hasn’t been as good as some of us were expecting.

I really thought going into the season that Floyd was ready to take the next step in his development and become a truly dominating inside lineman. But he hasn’t.

If one Vikings lineman has been truly dominating this season it’s been Linval Joseph, an absolute one-man wrecking crew the last couple games.

Where has Floyd been the last couple games while Joseph and Everson Griffen have been doing their thing on either side of him?

Again, Floyd hasn’t been bad, but he hasn’t been all that good either. He has sort of been out there doing his job, which is not quite the same as dominating.

Of course it’s still early and there’s plenty of time for Floyd to turn it around. I just hope there isn’t some nagging injury that we’re not hearing about that is holding him back.
