As Viking Camp nears , I noticed that the back ups at most o-line positions have adequate back ups. Except for RG , where after RG/Berger follows TJ Clemmings and Beavers, Yikes. Hopefully,  Miami Rookie  RG Isidora  will have a great camp and be 2nd at RG spot. RG Isidora  has the skill and knowledge and started all 38 games and helped Miami's ground attack at 157.7 yards a game.  To a great Viking camp !!!! greg1

Vikings have added  Tulane T/Artuo Uzdavinis at 6'7/305, went undrafted in 2016 and has been with Texans, Bears, Jaguars and most recent with Lions. Before being waived, the bright side at least he looks like a Viking, Geez !!! :shock:

Here is a little info on Viking LT/Hill, who is taking 1st team reps, while LT Reiff is out and Southern Miss T/Hill at 6'6/309 was clipped off Bear practice squad late in season and made his 1st start against Bears week 17 and was rated by PFF in that game the best o-linemen.  Hill was rated 78.5 and gave up no sacks, hurries or a single hit on QB Bradford in 36 pass blocking snaps, not Bad !!!!   shock1

I decided to look up LT Reiff injury history and out of 82 games with Lions, he only missed 3 due to injury or illness and that all happened last year ( hip/sick). A true "Ironman " and I have complete faith, he will be ready against Saints. Here is a tibit about 2012 draft , most draft experts had dropped LT Reiff out of 1st round, due to his length of arms what1 even though they where longer the Joe Thomas and Jake Long. Reiff was picked 23rd by Lions and other LT taken in 1st round at 4th pick was Kali  !!!! blitz1

As Viking o-line again is weak spot of team and with LT Reiff missing so many practices, one has to wonder had bad is the "back injury." I know Coach Zimmer does not like to disclose how bad a injury is. But it does not take a genius to come to the conclusion, it is not good and  hopefully LT Hill will participate in practice Today, Geez !!! >:(

I read in Viking Age, that not all fault in QB Bradford getting sacked is completely o-lines fault, it sort of makes sense in 1st sack. The Vikings lined up in shot gun formation and had in total 5  receivers, yet a run play was called and QB Bradford could not change run play, that had him step back additional 5 steps and 2nd sack again in same formation called for run play and all I can say is " I hope OC Shurmur will learn from this" Geez !!!! >:(

A High 5 to Viking o-line men for playing well, despite never playing as a unit ( pre season does not count) at times the line gave QB Bradford 3.17 seconds in pocket, impressive for sure GO Vikings !!!  dbana ddbana

Per Pro Football Focus, Sam Bradford was pressured on just six of his 34 dropbacks on Monday night...

Apparently it was not all o-lines fault according to Coach Zimmer and reasons where that QB Keenum drop back was to deep for pass protection and  line has to get use to QB Keenums  cadence count !!!! hmm1
