Just watched a video of training camp. The "highlights" from first day. One play stuck out in my mind. There was a play where Teddy B takes the snap pump fakes, checks off on another WR. Goes back to original. Then takes off on a scramble. And you better believe he isn't a complete dolt and actually slides on those plays.
So Zimmer was mic'd up for practice. Had the best line I've heard in a while. ""You can find a Cover 2 corner anywhere. I can go down to the 7-11 in Bloomington and get one."
Has anyone heard if any Vikings failed the conditioning test this training camp?...Zimmer wants em to be accountable and slackers or out of shape "Fat Bodies" will be on his radar if they fail...
Nice!...Saw where Cassel struggled yesterday. Teddy faired a bit better, but his 1st accuracy issues. Never the less, I'm hearing great things about my boy Teddy! Even if he isn't the day 1 starter, I think he might be, the early season schedule is brutal. The defense is gonna have to be the side that keeps this team in the playoff hunt. Come on 1st preseason game I wanna see what the kid has!
Here are a few things I've heard. Teddy has won some days at practice. The best thing though is that he got right back up after the picks and kept firing. Someone on the radio said you could see it in Ponder after he made a bad play, but Teddy has a short memory. Barr is a physical beast. They've been throwing him in at outside linebacker and right defensive end and he's been learning and holding his own. Sounds like Robison, Flloyd, Griffen, Barr could be a rush package on the line. Haven't heard much about our third round picks, which disappoints me. I've heard that Yankey is pushing for the left guard spot but it will more likely be next year. Not a rookie, but John Sullivan said Fusco is quickly becoming the best offensive lineman on the team.

To go with this. Robison said (like you said) he is learning a lot. Taking in a lot. But that he is a specimen that has already put some guys on their backs. He seemed impressed with Barr just by the tone of his voice changing when they brought his name up. Another guy I hear is doing well, is the McKinnon. Sounds like he is a burner, with just sick talent all around. Of course the biggest homer of them all, Paul Allen was the one that was saying this.
Is anyone hearing anything about any long shot guys doing well
Yankey? Slid to us in 5th and everything I hear is that he WILL be the starter at LG over Johnson?
