The #Vikings announced that interim OC Pat Shurmur is their full-time coordinator, a job he’s been doing for 2 weeks.

RT @Jim_Hickey: @Gary_Tanguay The Island of Misfit Toys is a more likely landing spot.

@MikeGiardi contact was fine. You can't drive QB for four yards and drag him down long after the ball is gone. Don't need more Carr injuries

Clowney catching a fine for that play is crap. Good luck hitting anybody on defense https://t.co/Jf0LdkiRqG

@patscap Yes, it is no coincidence that Kuechly's uniform number is repeated in the APY.

2015 League Cap =$143.28M. Kuechly signed his $12,359,059 APY deal. 2017 cap projects to be 17% higher. Equivalent deal has $14,491,359 APY

Insane that Pete Morelli didn't notice Clowney dragging Brady down 5 yards after initial contact, long after pass w… https://t.co/9dhuR9L2c7

Fines from last weekend: #Steelers DB Sean Smith fined $24,309 for a nasty hit. #Steelers DE Jadeveon Clowney hit with $18,231 for Brady hit

you make a really good point. brown IS better than offensive linemen at playing wide receiver. https://t.co/OFBfxdDHY8

    Woody would do just fine with the screen play. Not a concern.

    Deus Irae pointed out a real nice stat the other day which may have been from the article. It stated that the norm of the past as far as RB catches is usually between 55-80 on any given recent year, whereas last year they only had 34 total RB catches.

    It would certainly be assumed that they would fall within the normal range of years past, thus giving us at least another 20-25+ plays, likely closer to 30-35 that are catches from the RB's.

    We are hoping that Vereen will be a part of this, as he has come with much hype and offers some good skills in this aspect, but I would venture to wager that Woodhead will certainly be more of a part of this factor too.

    I would respectfully disagree with robert weathers as far as his ability to successfully pick up the blitz, and I think we've seen plenty of times where he has been 100% blown off his attempted pickup, almost killing Brady. That said, he does seem to have adequate leverage and balance, which likely helps him at times. It's possible that the whole "Woodhead sucks vs the blitz" issue may have been somewhat overblown a bit, but I think he is one of our biggest liabilities in that regard. It will be interesting to see if he has improved upon that at all this season, and how he is specifically used in various scenarios.

    I agree. Woody is a tiny dude and can easily be shuttled to the side. He does play with good leverage and does a decent job most of the time. Hes certainly a notch or two below Faulk who was excellent.

    Check out Dillon sometimes on blitz pickup. He was a force.
