Vikings Sign Robison To Extension

Posted by Ryan Cardinal on March 3, 2011 – 7:42 pm

The Vikings have come to terms on a contact extension with DE Brian Robison.

The Vikings fourth round pick out of Texas in 2007 had 15 tackles in 2010 to go along with 2.0 sacks and a pass defended.  He has a total of 13.5 sacks over his four-year career.

    We need to draft Brett Favre with our number 12 pick, so we can prevent him from going into retirement.

    A good move would be to draft 2 offensive linemen in the draft. Then pick up at least one top o tha liiiine free agent offensive linemen.

    This :) :) :) :) :)

    Yes, we do need a defensive back (other than Antoine Winfield) to play defense for the Vikings. Preferably one that could cover a junior high school end!

    But taking care of the OLine is job #1

    you know i’m with you fred. oline often. i say two in the draft and one in free agency. maybe a couple of undrafted. mckinnie trade his fat, lazy arse. load needs some competition to push him. need a right guard , another center. i think hutch will be fine. we have some serious needs folks; safety (i like abdullah), a corner (hopefully cook comes around, griff gets healthy, winfield is losing a step but still one of the best tacklers in the league), receiver (pink slips for berrian, lewis, and the rest of the rejects chilly brought in) keep carmillo. and qb of course (don’t waist a high rd pick on one though and pick one of the younger qbs that have not succeeded with another team, get rid of tjack). between webb and the others i think frazier can find his guy. with a much improved oline would do wonders for whoever was back there. line backers and dline as well. i think the only place we’re set is rb. my opinion on the draft: 1 oline, 2 safety, 3 nopickthxchilly, 4 oline, 5 corner, 6 qb i think we got an extra 6 rec, 7 best available

    meant to say pick up one of the younger qbs who have not succeeded on another team through free agency i.e. young, smith, can’t think of others (short term memory lose) might be the coaching being the reason they didn’t succeed or the oline was cra-ppy

    I just read a news article that Green Bay fans are bored and saddened by the lack of attention to their recent championship. Outside of the small city on the bay, no one in the entire country even cares about the Packers. The article continued that the Federal Government is considering a quarantine over Green Bay, and possibly Wisconsin to control spread of the cheesehead plague. Troops may be sent in by June, a time when the Packer fans may enter deep depression and hysteria, realizing their chance to gloat is near an end– once September hits, a new champion will begin their ascent.

    I think both Brian Robison and Tremaine Johson are very good young talents judging by last year’s preseason. My concern is finding a replacement for Pat Williams at tackle, and drafting a couple of O-linemen to shore up that glaring weakness.

    Good move with Robison, I think he could be a starter if he could get more conditioned. I like Macenroe for the draft of a quarter back. He’s got the eye of the tiger.

  30. By Parody on Mar 4, 2011 | Reply

    I agree, I always thought Robison was the better DE anyways. He appeared to get to the QB a lot faster than Edwards. I’m starting to think that the reason he wasn’t a starter was because of his value at backing up the DTs along with the DEs. Of course it might be a stamina issue as well. Griffen should be a good backup for both Robison and Allen, and if Guion can take over in the middle, then we just need one good prospect from the draft to backup the guys in the center.

    He is good but we still need the QB without that there really is no point in all of this. Webb is all right but we need a better QB

    Hey Wilfie, owning a football team does not make you football savvy. An owner tries to build his team through trades and free agency, but a GM will build this team the way it should be built- mainly through the draft. The key word is mainly.

    I know, I know- DUUUUUUUH!!!!! But the Vikings haven’t officially let him go yet. And there are some on this blogsite who still thinks he’s worth a shot. While I won’t name names (FREDERICK JONES!!!), they need to understand that despite his natural gifts, he’s still a project- AFTER 6 FREAKING YEARS!!! I still think he could be a solid qb someday but the Vikings organization needs to move on- as does TJack.

    Fredrick Jones is wrong about T-jack.
    Fredrick Jones was wrong about Chilldress.

    Fredrick is right about Ryan Bartholomew being a “Freak” of an athlete.

    We took Ryan Cook in the 2nd round because of his strength and quickness.
    Here are the numbers comparing Bart and Cook. Bartholomew numbers first.
    3 cone drill- 7.62 to 7.93
    10 yard dash 1.69 to 1.88
    Bench 225 -34 to 28
    Bench record – 585 to 425
    Power clean lift – 402 to 352
    Squat – 670 to 565

    @fred – I will admit Bartholomew is a monster. I am very impressed with your research on him.

    Keep in mind, Cook is 5 inches taller and has longer arms which is a disadvantage when weight lifting.

    @Smiff – they don’t need to officially let TJack go. He’s already gone. His contract ended. They’d need to “officially” re-sign TJack to be able to officially let him go. We just have to ignore him and let him apply to a CFL team.

    Merle, Frazier was also brought in by Chilly— not that I am for TJack– he has not grown in the past half decade— he looked the same in games this past season as he did 2 or 3 years ago. But the point is — determining who stays or goes based on Chilly is not good logic– the man made mistakes, but he was not a complete failure. By your logic, we should get rid of Frazier.

  40. By Parody on Mar 4, 2011 | Reply

    To add to your comment Tîtus, we also would be wise to drop Peterson, Harvin and Greenway while not trying to re-sign Rice.

    I think Chilly’s biggest issue was his lüst for power. From his control of Brett’s play-style to firing Randy, his fight for control is what made him lose control of the team, and likely the main reason why they underperformed so horridly in 2010.

  41. By Frederick Jones on Mar 4, 2011 | Reply

    @Carl, perhaps Cook, this being only his 3rd year in the NFL (2011), could be very successful as a tackle. They always said he was too tall to be a center.

    As far as TJack, it isn’t over yet for him, so be careful.

    I supported Brad Childress because I support ALL coaches who I believe are being treated unfairly. I knew early in the season he would probably be fired.

    I still do not believe he was treated fairly, although I believe we are better off without him because of the political environment.

    Hopefully Leslie Frazier is the answer, although I bet at some point he will also be harshly criticised. It’s the nature of that position.

    Good move to re-sign Robison. Buuuuuttt… what do y’all think about Carson Palmer coming here for a few years? Start one or two years and help develop Webb. And then use our #12 pick on a d-back or o-lineman. Thanks Childress for giving away our 3rd round pick for a 26 day rental. I would’ve used that pick to trade for Palmer. Anyways and always SKOL VIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Frederick, I was supporting Chilly as well– but it was obvious in the Miami game that he had lost common sense– Chilly believed, as the team and fans did, that we would stroll into the Superbowl.
    Parody, I agree– had Chilly let loose and trusted those around him and delegate — allow everyone to use their talents, he would have been a good coach. But his greed for control cost us the season– one of the reasons–

    Remind me what happened in the Miami game that made it obvious Chilly had lost common sense.

    It’s hard for me to remember back beyond about game-6 where Chilly threw flags against plays that were obviously called right which would have made a minimal difference to the outcome of the game and didn’t throw flags against plays that were pretty clearly called wrong and made a difference in points scored, only to follow all that up by firing #84. So much happened that week that it made me forget about a lot of Chilly’s earlier mistakes.

    We had an easy field goal- to at least put points on the board and we went for it on 4th down– it was early in the game and we were down by a TD I think— we only lost by 3 or 4 points.

    One think Madden always said that was one of the wisest comments he ever made– always take the first points you can— I think it applies to life– you have to break through the first adversity and then momentum follows.

    Okay Titus, got it. THere was something strange about our kicking game thjis year. Not only did Longwell have the fewest points of his career (or the last decade at the least) but he was given fewer chances than ever before too. There were times like that early one you described which should have been, but ChillyWIlly just seemed to want to score without his help. Strange…

    Halleberrian is the reason why stud WR’s like Vincent Jackson and Anquan Boldin don’t get the contracts they deserve. Yeah, he came up big in the Arizona game, but then he totally undoes all the goodwill and momentum by bailing on Favre at the last second a week later in Chicago, and has since went back to being mediocre. I’d say trade him, but who wants that b#m? The Vikings should just cut their losses and let “B-Twice” go. The Vikings were right to franchise Greenway, after Rice’s reluctance to have surgery on his hip cost his team dearly. But the new quarterback- whoever he is- needs him to be a Viking in 2011, so re-signing him should be a top priority. As for Moss, I think he has been sufficiently humbled and humuliated last season, and he will behave himself. Dump on him all you want, but remember this- Moss is at his very best when he has a chip on his shoulder, as evidenced by his 1998 season, after all those teams p@ssed on him in the draft, and his 2007 season, after everyone wrote him off in Oakland. If the Vikings don’t at least consider it, they may be p@ssing up on his best season yet. Aside: Burress is also worth considering.

    The following e-mail was sent to Mike W. in regard to the Stadium Question:

    Hi Mike: I have been a Vikings fan for a very long time. I don’t live in Minnesota so I don’t pay taxes there. If I was a Minnesota resident, I would not want my taxes going to a single use football stadium for the Vikings, as much as I am a very loyal fan. It has been proposed that a new stadium will cost in the order of $700,000,000 ($700M). The stadium will hold in the order of 70,000 fans.
    Using simple arithmetic, that works out to a capital cost of $10,000 per seat.
    I would like to buy a seat for $10,000. How would I do that?
    All we need are 70,000 football fans with $10,000 investments and you have your stadium!

Loadholt in 2009 he was a rookie starting tackle that went to the NFC Championship game, Guion, Everson Griffen,(people also forget two years ago everyone was praising him at usc then his senior year he fell off but very good late round pick) Rick is not the problem the problem was childress who wanted experience over talent, we have so much talent on the roster

    Frederick, I agree– TJack can make it– hey, he is already in the NFL. But, he needs a change in scenery and maybe a wake up call— in 5 or so years, he has shown barely any improvement. Not many people have the opportunity to be aQB in the NFL– and to sit under a hall of famer like Favre for two years– what did TJack do with that– nothing. TJack looked as confused and scattered in games this past season as he did in that playoff game against Philly a few years back. TJack had a lot of time to improve, study, and show himself capable– he may have the talent, and the arm– but where is his commitment to excellence– and to growth. Come on Fred, give it up– he is talented, but his work ethic and motivation are very suspect. Talent alone is not enough.

    Brad Johnson showed signs of greatness in 1998 when he was our starter, got hurt and Cunningham then had that unworldly season (I can still hear him giving Jes-us the praise after every game– along with Carter).
    Rich Gannon also showed greatness when he was with us– he did not get a lot of playing time, but you could see his poise.
    TJack has an occasional moment of great athleticism– but overall he scampers around like a nervous chicken— I think it’s because he is so unprepared mentally– he has no idea what is happening on the field– maybe I am wrong, but I don’t see any comparison to Johnson and Gannon– both looked good long before winning the big one.

    You have to have a chance to play to prove yourself. TJack really only got consistent playing time in 2008, when he helped lead the Vikings to their first division title in probably ten years.

    Len Dawson, Kurt Warner, George Blanda, Bart Starr, are other examples of players who didn’t get to play much for several years, and yet they became great quarterbacks.

    Granted these are exceptions, but we live in a period where the ULTRA-BRITE theory rules—-Everybody wants those nice white teeth right NOW. We don’t want to wait, or work for it.

    I always thought Gannon’s mechanics with the Vikings were atrocious, and I was not upset when they got rid of him. Gannon would turn COMPLETELY around sometimes before he threw the ball. It looked ridiculous.

    He made 3 Pro Bowls for the Raiders.

    Terry Bradshaw was also known for poor mechanics.

    @Snyder, I agree– Favre had a confidence and poise we have not seen in MN since Cunningham in 1998— you knew he could win– the players fed on that and followed him– and the fans believed we could win, even when we were behind– sadly, it has been a rare thing to witness the Vikings being resilient and confident enough to overcome adversity and win after being oustcored.

    Ryan Cook has started at C, G, and OT in the NFL. He has started a lot of games. Cook is young, big, strong, and quick for his size. Cook did a solid job at guard filling in for Herrera when he got hurt.

    I’m going to attempt to defend Ryan Cook here, if people remember correctly he was drafted to be a right tackle when his natural position in college was center and being place on an island week in and week out against elite athletes in the NFL playing that far out of your natural position would make anybody jumpy. he really hasn’t been able to compete at his natural position in his pro career, sure a spot start due to injury. Allowing him the chance to go though an entire mini-camp and training camp competing for the center position. He is more suited to play in a confined space in a power game as evident when he fill in for Herrera a position much closer to his college position.I still think the Vikings should retain him as an interior linemen and valuable backup.

    Players have to be given a chance to develop– often players are dismissed by fans because they appear average, but the seeds are being grown– as long as a player has a work ethic, intelligence, and a desire to improve, there is a chance an average player can become great. Players are not hall of famers in their first three or four years. Coaches are changed too often — look at Oakland, that is absurd– there will never be any continuity and thus, no chance for a strategy to reach fruition– changing horses every lap– you never win that way.

    On another note, just trust me here. This would be the best option for the Vikes in the Draft. Trade our number 12 spot for a pick later in the first round (28-32). Get that teams pick and get their third rounder too. Draft Pat Devlin in the late first round spot, and do whatever you want with the rest of the picks. But, that way we have a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, two 5ths, 6th, and 7th. I may be missing a few in there… but I think it a great option.

    Not a big fan of robison extension he is a quality backup but not a proficient starter.

    And they didn’t just boo him onto the field. It didn’t stop until after he departed the field. Another fact pointing to the class of Packer fans is their ritual for greeting opposing teams to the stadium. A large group of fans greet the teams’ buses when they arrive by mooning them. This is a lot less known than the “boo-ing their hero” incident, and led to Moss’ big personality problem that gave Red McCombs a reason to trade him away.

    @Shawn – I wouldn’t worry too much about it. From my understanding, the Wilfs got their fortuen through real estate. In every real estate encounter I have ever witnessed, it was always a bargaining game, where you start out just at the edge of a sucker offer, and then both sides change their offer until finding a happy middle ground. With how slow the state has been in offering a solution, I would be surprised if Ziggy’s initial offer wasn’t just a move to get the state into bargaining mode.

    Now that they’ve set a deal out where he needs to pay in an additional third more from what he offered, he can contemplate on the idea and might even be willing to accept it without any further negotiation.

    Here’s a little stadium article that may convince some people to sway in our favor:

    Apparantly a Super Bowl (which has been all but guaranteed with a new stadium) will generate an extra $400 million dollars in state revenue, including something in the range of $30 million in tax dollars. That’s all extra income to the state and its businesses for a single event. Once you add in the taxes and extra spending caused by the other events, it seems pretty clear that this will be a profitable move for the state in the long run.

    Gubber – Pat Williams is gone, Fred Evans has not been offered an RFA tender, and it’s more likely than not that Ray Edwards will not come back. Add to that the fact that Kevin Williams has a 4-game supsension looming over his head and you can see that the D-Line is looking pretty thin.

    Also guys like Jared Allen and Kevin Williams are getting older, so replacements for them will need to be in the works in the next couple of years. Griffin has promise if he can get his act together, and Letroy Guion has been praised by coaches, but I haven’t heard much good talk about Jimmy Kennedy. So one or two good draft choices this year should help the current and future D-Line a lot.

  193. By Parody on Mar 7, 2011 | Reply

    But anyways, currently on the roster are 6 D-linemen when we had 10 at the beginning of last year. Of those six, only two of them were starters last year and one of those starters (K.Williams) is likely to be forced to sit the first 4-games. So for now, what was the strongest aspect of our defense just 2-years ago is now looking by far and large like the biggest weakness.

    Maybe you guys don’t watch the playoffs much but how i see it franchise QB has been the thought process. I’ve watch all the superbowl and maybe the buc’s and raven’s over last 12 to 15 years did not have a fran QB to lead them to a superbowl. So with that maybe trading down and pick up an extra pick. then grab jake lockler or trade with brown and get patrick peterson-cb- and work a trade with eagles for Cob-qb- that would give us time to get a dline (and its a deep class this year). Brown would still get Quinn-de- at 12thpick. We would be great up front with a shut down corner like Peterson. Trade brain m. to pats. for our third rd back great spot for ot. to compete with loadholt.QB is key

    The Vikes have too many needs and are in a mess.Even with the draft and free agency they still won’t be competitive. They have one ace and that is AC, but he can’t carry a team. So how do you use that ace? You trade him while he has some value. They could probably get a whole lot for AC and start re-building the team. Dallas did it with Walker when they traded him to the Vikings, which made them a superbowl team. Just think of it, there is no other way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
