Marrdro's comment follows:
Sticks with the OL tone of the first article.

I hate articles like this... sure, it contains facts, but absolutely no analysis.
Why don't they simply post a link to the official Vikings roster and be done with it.

Hmmm interesting, but I don't see them benching "the Load" for somebody who is new to the line. Especially with Favre's hard count.

If the Load gets benched it won't be for one of these cats.
Anyway, not saying you are, but lets not throw the kid under the bus quite yet.
Lets give him some time.

I saw last night on the NFLN they signed Cooper off the PS.
I was thinking it was to give Sully some competition.
I know the Bills were looking at Runyan.
Did they ever sign him?
He may be a decent pick up but I know he's a bit older and was having difficulty with his leg.
I wouldn't mind seeing Artis Hicks play RT and Cook at RG for a few plays.
If Cook can stop the false starts I think he does better on the inside.

Whatever they decide to do they need to fix that OL quickly.

I still thought Load played well against the 9ers.
People say he had issues in the 1st half, but I know in the 2nd half I saw him flat out dominating his man 1 on 1.

As for the line... I've been fairly pleased.
A bit more time would be nice, but look at the penalties, or more importantly, the lack there of.
Even with Favre's hard count, 2 games on the road, they're holding up very well.
With a dink and dunk offense, 5 and 10 yard penalties can be drive killers.
So far this year we haven't been killing ourselves, at least not at the line.

IN reality to me the whole offensive line has not been playing that well yet. We have 2 new starters on line, need to gel.

OF course everyone in Sooner land is happy to see Cooper get a place on the playing team.
He's not the biggest center, but quick and EXTREMELY smart.

I don't think Loadholt is as much of a problem as McKinney is. At least he can claim rookie status.....WTF is McKinney's excuse? The Oline as a unit isn't performing well. Extra practice, extra conditioning. No excuses.

Although we need to get better, the same can be said for the whole team. We are a work in progress, and haven't even approached mid-season form yet. We are going to hit stride in about 3 weeks, then watch out.
