    From what I have watched tonight, I was impressed with Chris Cook and Joe Webb so far. I wasnt too impressed with Albert Young though. I was a little upset that Tarvaris only played a series.. I thought he should have played a quarter... I dont understand why childress did that really.. I guess he want to see Sage. Which Sage did put on a performance. 300+ yards in a preseason game is somewhat impressive.
    Whats sad is, Sage has absolutely no chance to start for this team(even with no Favre). No matter how good he plays in the preseason, we'll be stuck watching Jackson behind center. And apparently Childress isnt to concerned about getting him some reps in the preseason. Maybe he feels that he doesnt need the playing time.

    • Overall I was quite pleased with that game. I'd have liked to see more of the first team guys, both offense and defense. Sage really impressed me, and hopefully he can build up a bit of a trade value. Mills looked really good, no WRs really stood out to me other than Payne, who looked good early on but then had a couple poor drops. I was pleasantly surprised with Reynaud, he ran a lot tougher and stronger than I thought he would. I thought Young was ok, he had no where to go on his runs, but he looked quite good in the passing game, picking up blitzes and catching the ball. Gerhart didn't show me anything outside of that one run(that iirc got called back), where he got outside and had about 12-15 yards. Joe Webb looked quite solid out there, on that one scramble he had he reminded me sooooo much of Michael Vick pre-dog fighting, just so smooth with long strides and the same little wiggle. I wasn't very happy with the play of the O-line, a lot of penalties and no running room although they did a solid job of pass protection for the most part.

      The second and third team D Lines looked very good, especially Mitchell, Guion, and Evans. They were getting pressure, almost at will and also did a very good job filling holes against the run. The LBs were just very solid, Brinkley had a nice play in coverage, and Erin had several free blitzes. I didn't notice Sapp much and I don't think Lito played much, if at all, outside of that first series, but Cook impressed me a lot, as did Asher Allen, other than the punt return **** up. The Safeties didn't show up much other than the couple of dropped INTs early on, but them not showing up may be a good thing, at least they're not getting burnt deep and caught out of position.

      Overall, that was a damn good start to the preseason. Now we just gotta see some more of the first teamers in the next game and then let Favre take over the reins when he comes back just before the third preseason game. ;)

      • The run blocking was just awful, there were no running lanes out there. Gerhart looked hesitant and seemed to dance around even when there were some openings. I didn't really see much of Cook but he had a nice pass breakup and forced a fumble.

        • Is there any chance Asher Allen stays at the number 2 corner til Griffin wins it back? Or is it being given to Sheppard? And if Sheppard has it, will Allen be the nickel? And if so, what happens to Sapp? 5th corner and gets cut once Griffin gets back? I liked Sapp last year quite a bit. Someone help me solve our cornerback mystery.

          Did Toby really look hesitant? That is bad bad news considering he is supposed to be that big bruiser. I was incredibly upset, I ran around the room yelling and cursing when we took him, so I hope to all that is holy my anger isn't justified.

          Did Joe Webb look like he is ready to be on an NFL roster, or is he gonna be practice squad this year? If Favre comes back, is there any chance that Webb makes the team?

            I don't really know what's gonna happen at CB, and that's why I didn't really understand the Sheppard signing with the Cook pick right after that. It's really confusing with how well Cook and Allen have played/looked so far, especially with Sapp not having been able to practice much. I would have guessed Sheppard as the starter with Sapp at the nickel and Allen and Cook playing the Dime/spot duty, until Griffin comes back, but now I'm guessing that it will be a big battle for the rest of preseason, with someone or a couple of guys really standing out and winning the spot(s).

            Did Toby really look hesitant? That is bad bad news considering he is supposed to be that big bruiser. I was incredibly upset, I ran around the room yelling and cursing when we took him, so I hope to all that is holy my anger isn't justified.

            I have to say he did look a bit hesitant, although he had no place to go at all. It still shouldn't matter with him as he's supposed to be a guy that just punches it up into the hole and pushes ahead for 4 yards. The run blocking last night was horrendous and I think that coupled with the fact that Gerhart may have been a bit nervous probably lead to his hesitation. Really the only RB who looked even half ass decent on carries was Reynaud, who really surprised me. The other guys had absolutely no where to go, and really Reynaud didn't have much room either, he just made a couple plays. I was with you on hating the pick and I have come around on it some, but I agree with you, if he doesn't look any better than that I will be very pissed at a completely wasted pick that confused almost everyone.

            Did Joe Webb look like he is ready to be on an NFL roster, or is he gonna be practice squad this year? If Favre comes back, is there any chance that Webb makes the team?

            I don't think there's any chance Webb doesn't make the team. I would be incredibly suprised if he is cut. He doesn't look ready, but he seems like someone that Chilly would be paranoid about someone wanting to steal his incredible project. I definitely see Sage either getting traded for a conditional pick, probably starting out as just a 7th rounder with the possibility of it becoming a 5th rounder, or I see him getting cut if no one is interested in him. He doesn't seem like he's one of Chilly and co.'s guys and they could really care less about him. It's pretty obvious that T-Jack is the clear starter if Favre doesn't come back and is the clear # 2 if he does with how last night went. T-Jack played a series and Sage ended up playing for almost 3 quarters; to me that screams that they're trying to raise Sage's value, especially with how many passes he threw, even with the terrible run blocking you'd have thought they'd have wanted to see more of all of those RBs that are fighting for the roster and the 3rd down back.
            My thoughts are in bold.

            • My question on Webb is that would he get sent down to the practice squad for year one and then makes the team next year.

              • Webb should be on the practice squad this year,who know if he will or not or if he would pass through waivers. All my friends are talking about how awesome he was last night and I keep telling them this is exactly what happened with T-Jack his first preseason. I mean this is the same guy who couldn't complete 60% of his passes in Conference USA. I still think he should be playing receiver.

                  Yea, I don't think that happens because he would be fair game for anyone to pick up and Chilly would be paranoid that someone would pick up his super project. I think that just for that reason Chilly will keep Webb around even if it makes less sense than keeping Sage.

                    I agree with you there, Webb looked ok last night, but he still has a long ways to go, but for the reason I listed, I don't see him being put on the practice squad. I would love to see his athletic ability out wide, but I don't know that we'll ever see him playing WR, at least for the Vikings while Chilly is coaching.

                              Pretty surprising to see him cut so soon I thought he was a legit contender for the #5 WR spot.
