Minnesota Vikings 1st-round pick Matt Kalil hasn’t wasted any time living up to expectations. According to Pro Football Focus, Kalil has allowed zero sacks, zero quarterback hits and just one quarterback hurry. PFF’s weighted Pass Block Efficiency rating ranks Kalil among the game’s elite with a 98.9 percent rating. It’s only two games and we shouldn’t draw conclusions – good or bad – based on this small sample size. But it’s certainly encouraging for the Vikings to see Kalil hit the ground running.

@tomscheck: DeKruif tells @timpugmire that he's still thinking about running against GOP Sen. Julie Rosen. He says he'll decide in a few weeks. If anyone has an early axe to grind against a stadium opponent, here's your first potential chance. I don't know how many emails I sent to DeKruif that fell on deaf ears. twitter.com

2012 NFL Draft Individual Grades: *** Rick Spielman says the No. 3 pick will come down to Matt Kalil, Justin Blackmon and Morris Claiborne. I'd like to issue grades for all three scenarios. *** 3. Matt Kalil, OT, USC: A+ Grade The Vikings made a big investment in Christian Ponder, and they're doing the right thing by protecting him. Ponder suffered a hip injury last year, thanks in part to his offensive line's ineptness. Kalil, considered by most to be the top prospect in this class outside of the two quarterbacks and Trent Richardson, will be a huge upgrade over Charlie Johnson at left tackle. Some may argue that teams don't need an elite blind-side protector to win in the NFL. This is true, but only if you have a perennial Pro Bowl quarterback. Ponder is not that (at least not yet), so he needs all the help he can get. Bravo, Rick Spielman. You made the correct decision. Update: Great job by Spielman. Not only did he get Kalil; he traded down and got some picks too. Awesome. 29. Harrison Smith, SS, Notre Dame: A- Grade The Vikings had a bunch of picks from the Matt Kalil trade, so they gave up a fourth-rounder to move up six spots. This was a good move; Harrison Smith fits the range and offers a huge upgrade at safety. He'll really improve Minnesota's secondary.

"We have no plans to come back here next year...no action is a decision by the state of Minnesota. Need to get this done" Minnesota Vikings' VP Lester Bagley, when asked today about potential stadium legislation for 2013. (Quote comes from the Twitter account of Jeff Goldberg, political reporter for Fox 9 in the Twin Cities.)

To answer the questions directed specifically to me, as a father first and foremost, I am glad to report Kyle’s concussion tests have been extremely positive and we are grateful he is ready and anxious to get back to competition. Personally, suspension or not, it’s probably best I’m never in a room with Gregg Williams and wonder if such an order crosses the lines of the aggressive, competitive spirit we all know and love about the sport and leans closer to a criminal act and therefore litigious matter. Chicago White Sox General Manager Kenny Williams, father of San Francisco 49ers' receiver/punt returner Kyle Williams, who was one of the players that gutless New Orleans Saints' defensive coordinator Gregg Williams said needed to be targeted. The quote comes from a press release following the release of the audio prior to this year's divisional playoffs. And, yes, this is one of the few times you'll hear me say something positive about the Chicago White Sox, because this is pretty awesome.
