Getting To Know Lito Sheppard

Posted by Mike Wobschall on May 18, 2010 – 8:29 am

The Vikings will hit the practice fields later this morning at Winter Park as they kickoff OTA #1, so there’s not much to report right now. In the meantime, though, we can get to know one of the newest Vikings a little bit better.

CB Lito Sheppard signed with the Vikings earlier this offseason and has been around Winter Park the last couple of weeks. And although the Vikings are a new team for him, Sheppard’s transition has been eased by something.

    Secondary is no longer a weak link. I think the weak link is now the offensive center and right offensive guard. Vikes need a mammoth 6′ 7″ 325 lb behemoth in those positions who can protect Bret Favre and create holes for TG and AP. I hope that drafted player DeGeare is up for the challenge. I hope the Williams Wall will win their case against the NFL. I don’t know why Vikes have a hard time deciding on Haynesworth if he wants to play for the Vikes. The Griffen/Haynesworth/Jimmy Kennedy/Allen front-four would be awesome.

    Secondary is still a problem, as far as o-line we lost hicks which wasn’t a very big loss, degeare should get a chance if he can showcase it in training camp. Guards are not meant to be 6’7 that’s for the left and right tackles. Guards are a little shorter but more beefier like centers size somewhat. Favre just hangs on the ball too long at times, lineman can’t block forever. Rice had huge numbers, harvin was productive, berrian also shank so the vikings lineman are doing a pretty good job if he didn’t have good protection those guys wouldn’t have been a factor. Yeah I see the o-line needs some adjustments and minor tweaking but other than that they are doing a decent job.

    I’ll like to see the DEFENSE play like they did against the Cowboys in the Playoff last year.

    The performance in the middle isn’t entirely the Favre story. I hear Sully is a great pulling hitter from the replays and pundits, but could Adrain’s production decline be a result of not resigning the stud Birk? The Ravems under Birk’s captainship ran all over us. Few can. Injuries will define our weaknesses and depth will play the part as always. Our last pickup from the Jets I know of, worked out… That Favre guy. Welcome Mr. Sheppard.
