Put Vic So’oto out there


Turns out Zombo is hurt again and Lattimore won’t be active Sunday either. That opens up a spot for OLB Vic So’oto Sunday. Read here from Tyler Dunne at jsonline.

As Dunne points out So’oto was absolutely dominant against KC in the final preseason game. What Dunne does NOT point out is that KC played their offensive starters for most of the game (foolishly). So’oto’s dominance was against a starting offensive unit that was very solid last year. But the KC game wasn’t his only active game in the preseason – he was pretty good in some of the others as well. The guy has moves on the outside to get home to the QB. If he’s truly healthy now, I say give him a few opportunities to bring the heat on passing downs. He’s likely not on Minnesota’s radar. They probably don’t even have film on the guy.

He’s becoming my new Desmond Bishop. You’ll see why if he gets in there.

    I was ready for him in Game 1 until he hurt his back. This guy needs some reps to get going. Walden is not the answer.

    Off topic, but apparently Vikings CB Chris Cook was arrested for domestic assault. There is a chance he will remain in jail until his hearing Monday morning.

    Wow – and you wonder why the people of MN don’t want to pony up $300 million to build these guys a new stadium. What a disaster of a season for them. Geez, it must be hard to be a Vikings fan.

    It looks like the Vikings could be without their top two corners (Winfield + Cook) and a starting safety (Sanford) this Sunday. (Both are listed as doubtful) Not a good week for that when Jennings, Driver, Jordy, Cobb, Jones, and Finley are coming to town. Would they even have enough CB’s to cover 5 wide?
