Let me first say that I'm as excited as everyone else about the Viking's chances this weekend and the playoffs. I can't wait to see the Purple win and screw all the 'experts' that are picking Philly to win.
But has anyone else noticed now lousy Bryant McKinney has been playing? How many times does this guy get flat out BEAT by the opposing DE a game.....a dozen times or more? Even on some good plays where AP has a great run, #74 looks like he is lost. This guy blocks more air than he does defenders. I just watched some of the highlights on the NFL Network replay from last week and saw him just holding his hands in front of him but not making contact.....I don't know, does the Metrodome have a knat problem because it sure looked like he was swatting at something other than the guy he was supposed to block.
It sure seems to me like this guy would be a prime candidate to be replaced this offseason. Why? Well, wasn't he suspended for 4 games for his involvement in a brawl this year? Wasn't he part of the 'boat' incident? And oh by the way, he has a big fat contract that usually is reserved for a player that is vital to your team.
If the Vikes are going to become a better team, they need to cut their ties to guys like this and move on. TJ had better watch his backside because #74 sure doesn't have his back.
