1st team players:
Eric J. Thompson
Strength: Borderline Vikings maniac.
Strength: Borderline Vikings analyser.
Weakness: Mixed up with famous architect.
From start Eric and Arif got all reps at the sideline. It's a tough job with a pretty new playbook, but it isn't being introduced all at once. Like most 60 Minute Men they take all reps at offence, defens and special teams.
During these days Eric has, as expected, been sturdy and balanced with strong hands and quick fingers in all his text-drills.
Arif had no problem keeping up with the tempo and his keyboard embroidery work has been very readable.
This will surprise absolutely nobody, Eric and Arif were the chattiest people on the sideline throughout all days and it wasn't even close! They each, always, had something to say whether they were participating at Twitter, DN or linking to some other respectable (?) site.
Do we really understand how blessed we are to have these two magnificent sly dogs on our side?!
Next up is 2nd team heroes K.J. Segall and Skol Girl.
Watch out Eric and Arif! Don't read too much into 1st and 2nd team assignments this early in camp.
Strength: Borderline Vikings MMA maniac.
Weakness: A bandwagon '98 Vikings jumper.
Strength: Borderline motherly concerns for the Vikings.
Weakness: She is not patient.
Unfortunately KJ been assigned to the training camp PUP list. Head Coach Gates will go with only Skol Girl in the 2nd team and is not signing a free agent this early in the season.
Good luck Skol Girl! Get well soon KJ!
