John Sullivan named the 19th worst player in the NFL

 

Brian DiTullio, featured columnist at Bleacher Report, March 23, 2011, notes the 25 worst players in the NFL.  Our center makes the list as:  "There is John Sullivan helping Brett Favre up off the turf. If Sullivan had done a little better job blocking, this picture never would have been taken.

The Vikings offensive line was one of the best in the league a few years ago. That was not the case in 2010 and Sullivan's poor anchoring was a big part of that equation."

The list ends with Jimmy Clausen at #2 and Albert Haynesworth as the worst player in the NFL.

 

While I'm not a Sullivan lover, I'm not a hater.  The line did play better with Sullivan than with Cooper/Cook backups.  So that leaves a question:  What's the rankings for our O-line?  Best to worst?  here's mine:

1) Hutchinson - without the injury he's an All Pro

2) Loadholt - with another year of workouts and coaching, he's a solid RT

3) McKinnie - please come to camp weighing under 320!

4) Sullivan - get the calf injury healthy and mature another year

5) Herrera - weakest starter who will have hard time beating out a drafted OG to start

6) DeGeare - decent reserve.  maybe he pressures Herrera for starting spot?  Only if another OG isn't drafted.

7) Cook - decent multipositional reserve, but doesn't have ability to start.

8) Cooper - "I'll take Coop, you get the 2 nerds and lets play football." (memory from high school where I was sometimes one of the nerd pair)

t9) Olsen, Welch, Brown - long shots to fill out the roster

 

Can't believe I put McKinnie 3rd.  Man we need upgrades on the O-line!
