  • Building Good Character

    http://www.nfl.com/nflnetwork/story/10175316

    Time for a positive story to counteract all the negative ones out there.

    Next weekend, Vikings third-round draft pick Marcus McCauley, the former Fresno State standout cornerback, will become the first person in his family to earn a college degree.

    He will graduate from Fresno State on May 19 with his degree in sociology.

    McCauley actually finished the requirements for graduation in December 2006, when in his final semester his grade-point average was a perfect 4.0.

    The Vikings knew they drafted a good cornerback; they're also getting a good person.

    Vikings linebacker and special teams standout Jason Glenn has been selected to receive the 2007 NFL Continuing Education Program Recognition Award and will be honored at the National Association of Academic Advisors for Athletics (N4A) Annual Convention in June. This honor is bestowed upon an individual who has displayed commitment and dedication to completing his degree while playing professional football.




    It's great to see that we are finally getting recognized for having good character, instead of bad.

      I think McCauley will be good for us and Glenn is very good on special teams.

          I really think McCauley has a chance to make a real impact early.
          He was the pick I was happiest about...and I have big expectations for him.

              From top to bottom i really think all our picks are decent charcter players with all the BS the bengals and falcons are going thru Im just glad to see the heat on someone elses burner for a while.

                Yeah, it's good to see that. McCauley and Griffin might be the same kind of cornerback, but they are complete opposites. I don't know why I brought Griffin up, but I just thought I'd do it.

                  McCauley will be a steal if he plays like he did as a junior. He's first round talent in the 3rd round. Just think of Winfield and Griffin complemented by McCauley. Our big weakness was nickle and dime coverage (see Patriots game) and I think he'll improve it vastly. I'm cautiously optimistic about this season. If things fall in place we could have a good year.

                    Fred Smoot was just fine as a nickel , CB's were not the problem ...it was lack of a pass rush, Champ Bailey would look like Rufus Bess with our "pass rush"...so please stop thinking a 3rd round kid with upside is instantly better than a seasoned vet like Smoot.

                      Severe needs to stop reading the BS press and open his eyes, Not getting sacks isnt always lack of pass rush, Again I will spell this out to you when you stop the run as well as minnesota you are bound to surrender more yds due to teams abandoning the run, MORE ATTEMPTS = MORE YDS IN 3 step offenses sacks are virtually impossible!!!!!!!!!

                        Attention disph!t, in a Tampa 2 you don't blitz. Pressure comes from the
                        line , which in turn allows 7 guys to fall back into coverage...limiting lanes and increasing the chance of a ball being deflected or picked.

                        The Vikings got how many sacks last year from their line ??? It was the 2nd worst in the league. To suggesting anything other than what I've stated all along is nothing more than a grandstanding bofoon.


                        ..which would be you.

                        and as far as "no team ran against us"...might wanna take a peek at the St.Louis game one more time. They ran, threw and did anything they wanted against the D. So spare us the mythical belief that this team is the 85 bears against the run.

                          First off there is no such thing as the Tampa 2, that is a term dubbed by the media for a cover 2 base defense. Second Had you done your home work you would find on the contrary our line backers lead our team in sacks, and that Pat Kenechi and Kevin all three only combined for around 6 sacks, Third I wish you were running the bears cover 2 because Urlacher gets a but load of sacks for a linebacker who doesnt blitz. So Simpleton stop listening to the media and start trying to understand what your eyes see. The Cover 2 base defense simply implies that both saftys split the field It has nothing to do with linebackers not blitzing, They can and in fact do blitz while still running the cover two this defense usually puts the corners in man coverage the saftys still cover deep and they simply blitz anyone whos man stayed in to block freeing up players, they also run things called zone blitz from the cover 2 this is where linemen drop back while linebackers blitz, So Again you have let your mouth write a check your ass cant cash.

                            I dont remember comparing our defense to the 85 bears, Our defense was statistically better then the 85 bears for the better part of the year.
                            By saying what the rams did in the last part of the year is like taking what we did to Rex Grossman where he finished the game with a qb rating under 20 and making that the textbook game,
                            Im starting to agree with everyone else you are an Idiot with little or no substance to add to any conversation other then general pestimism that has little or no factual stability. You are quick to point out the short comings of the team but very slow to accept the strengths, I believe at some point you have claimed to be a coach. If you are indeed a coach I do hope you approach that in a diffrent manner then you do here.

                              Actually there is such a thing as the Tampa 2, it wasn't dubbed by the media its a modified version of the Cover 2 that is more effective, and its called Tampa 2 because Tony Dungy made it famous while he was with the Tampa Bay Bucaneers.
