i sure hope not, i think goldberg is a penalty waiting to happen, plus i think withrow has learned alot from birk and will do ok this season

Goldberg isn't that bad of a lineman and he was definitly better than that hack Dorsey who we got rid of.

I don't think Goldberg will be that bad either. He had a lot of penalties when I first started watching him play, but since then he's had some pretty good games. I think he played pretty well vs Green Bay in the playoffs last season. (as did most of the vikes...bummer for bayboys!) Also, I didn't realize that boy was that big! Nothing wrong with have 310 pounds at centre!

i really do hope that Goldberg takes over the center spot.. i believe with his size, and his speed he'll do well. More so i'd hope Birk sits with him and isolates the two Withrow and Goldberg for serious 1 - 1 training on the position. get all the mental ques down and use Birks knowledge to it's most if he can't play this year.

if it does go this way, i bet goldberg will end up a pro bowl center.. (not just from biased opionin) but he is quick off the ball, and with his size could be a good hole opener / blocker.


(sig coming soon)

Melvin Fowler will be backing up Withrow, and may be starting by week 4.

He is the palyer that we acquired for Dorsey in a trade with Cleveland.

Personally I thought Dorsey did a pretty darn good job last year for being a rookie thrust into a starting role! But as I say, that's why I'm not a coach!

Withrow calls a good game, but if we can't run the ball then we should look to Fowler, or Goldberg if he can recognize the blitz and where it is coming from...
