Brinkley Shows More Improvement As Regular Season Approaches

Posted by Mike Wobschall on August 26, 2012 – 10:56 am

We mentioned late last week that Vikings coaches were pleased with the progress starting middle LB Jasper Brinkley has made in training camp and the preseason. We may be talking more about that progress this week, as Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier once again praised Brinkley after Friday’s exhibition game against the San Diego Chargers.

“Jasper seemed like he played a lot better,” Frazier said. “He was more aggressive, he seemed like he was out there having fun, kind of letting go a little bit. His play was encouraging just watching from the sideline. He made a lot of plays tonight so that should help his confidence. It was inspiring to see him play as aggressive as he did.”

Brinkley had 2.0 sacks and 3 QB hurries on the night, as he was a part of suffocating performance by the Vikings first-team defense. Granted, San Diego was missing several starters, but the Vikings defense did what they should’ve done given their matchup. The Chargers had just 80 net yards of offense and 5 first downs in the 1st half versus the Vikings starters, and the visitors were just 22% on 3rd downs and averaged only 2.5 yards per carry.

That’s the kind of performance coaches and fans want to see from Brinkley. His injury history has been well-publicized, but after great improvement since training camp began in late July and a couple of encouraging preseason outings, it will be Brinkley’s solid play that gets the publicity soon.

    The first team defense is starting to really look promising for this season. Just a little worried about the backups. The last score by the Chargers really reminded me of how the Vikes lost a lot of games last year.

    I have to agree that Brinkley has show improvement since the first preseason game. The defense shutdown the Chargers. The defense has been playing much better. Let’s see what happens in the first 3 games of the regular season that should tell us fans how the year will be.

    Lack of enthusiasm lost us the game Friday. It’s as simple as that.

    Or the 4 turnovers might have had something to do with it.

    The starters were going up against scrubs…in a pre-season game…of course they were bound to lack enthusiasm.

    Its common sense. And like Mike W. alluded to, you cant win when you turn the ball over 4 times.

    Its a shame that Kamar Jordan suffered a hand injury, heard lots of positives about him making plays in training camp. If he would have gotten in some pre-season games im sure he would still be on this team. He could have been our version of Victor Cruz.

    Wobs is spot on. Your never goin to win with 4 turnovers! That being said, we only gave up 12 points. Nice job by the defense!! Jasper Brinkley has really played well.Middle LB is one of the toughest positions in all of football and i think hes done a fine job filling some big shoes in EJ Henderson.

    I thought Kevin and Fred did a nice job at the tackle positions.Overall i would give our defense an A. We have given up the least amount of points in our division thus far. I no its only preseason but its sure nice to see us improving on the defensive side of the ball.Way to go Defense!!!

    But anways, I still think the coaches think Aromashodu is ahead of both Burton and Manny.

    I think Burton has something but it might be another year until we see it. He was such a raw player. Same deal with Manny.

    Jenkins is solid and plays the flanker spot fine. We could for sure use an upgrade but he isn’t terrible like most say.

    Time to watch some Peyton Manning, ahhh….so thats what a real quarterback looks like.

    I would not doubt the Vikings grab at least one tall receiver from the waiver wire this Saturday place on the practice squad…After the 53 man roster is in place…

    Very much hoping Frazier is totally on board with Spielmans youth movement…That would mean many of the rookies would find positions on the 53 man roster…

    And more rookies could then be claimed off the waiver wire to fill the practice squad also…

    Really impressed with this groups linebackers, I was pulling for Marvin Mitche!! Erin Henderson played his best game so far as well. I think Erin solidified his job. Great job with the coaching staff to find legit competition to get this team better. I keep on seeing comments about the lack of energy for this pre-season game. Really didnt see much of a difference, other than we had no touchdowns to cheer for in the first half… The announcer stats his own perception, then this leads the fans to feel the same. The media is a bunch of brainwashers.

    If you come into the game with enthusiasm, and you appear to be playing like you want to win, then you probably don’t end up putting the ball on the ground 4 times.

    I wish Aromashadu could get some playing time with the first team. He has done well with what he has been given which hasn’t been much. Webb keeps overthrowing him on the sideline and not giving him a chance to make a play on the ball and yet he keeps coming down with them just out of bounds at least if he got a better chance we could see if he is worth keeping

    LOL Tebow seriously I don’t what goes on in others minds. I would rather bring back Randy Moss and his baggage than the media circus and lack of production Tebow would bring. Denver knew what to do with Tebow and that was to dump him the first chance they got. Elway knew what type of player Tebow was and promptly dumped him.

    Again I disagree with Wobby the WR core we have doesn’t cause other teams any concern we can get down the field deep and score quickly. This makes our offense predictable and they put more players in the box to stop the run. This is the Offensive coordinator’s challenge to open up the field when other teams do this. They couldn’t do it last year and haven’t done it yet this year. It puts too much pressure on the OLine and with a new Oline that’s a bad situation. We need to get a top notch Outside WR and open up the Offense and not the Run First that Frazier likes.

    couldn’t disagree more with the WR mmm question. This player doesn’t have to be a old veteran Mike W just a tall, outside threat is all the fans want to see!

    Probably not fair to lump P. Burress in with the other two knucklheads as he was a top end-zone threat in this league last year

  90. By Mike B. on Aug 27, 2012 | Reply

    @Sandiamond. I expect Wobby to support the team and players that are currently on the team as he is paid by the team. I think this issue needs to be brought up by the fans that have watched the games on a continuing basis. This issue rests squarely on the Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator. The Offense needs to have a depth threat ability or the offense becomes too predictable and easily defended. Our OLine can’t stand up to 8 or 9 defenders in the box. This is going to again cause injuries to our QB and Running Backs in the long run. In today”s NFL you need to be able to make the quick strike if defenses are bunching up on you. The Pass enables the run and the run the pass. We must be great at both or it’s going to be a long season.

  91. By JE on Aug 27, 2012 | Reply

    Ihave to agree with you Mike B. My question to you and other blogers is can Jerome Simpson be that guy? We didnt play him friday nite and it showed.He does have big play ability and has the speed to take the top off of the defense. Those are two things we havent seen since Moss was here.

    S Mryon Rolle released plus the guy from the other night WR R. Parrish. My guess is Studwell & Co flips the page on players over 28 1/2

    Also, it’s safe to say the Vikings have NO vertical threat on their roster for first 3 weeks with Simpson suspended. None.

  93. By Mike B. on Aug 27, 2012 | Reply

    It is my understanding that Jerome Simpson is about the same height as Harvin, so yes they both have big play ability. They don’t have the ability to stretch the field as a Randy Moss or Plaxico can. Some would argue that here are shorter big play receivers, but these taller faster WR seems to have consistant producton and cause defenses to back off and account for them.

    MBT did ok in one quarter of the one preseason game he played but let see how he fairs in the last preseason game before we anoint him 2nd or 3rd QB. It would be great if we could sneak him on to the practice squad. But Webb and Sage are clearly the front runners for those spots. So I wouldn’t hold my breath on MBT making the active roster this year unless of injury, trade, or he tears it up against Houston.

    As far as Rolle its kind of a concern that if the Vikings were to sign him it would be his 3rd team in a very short career so far, however I wouldn’t be upset if the did sign him. He’s a smart young Safety but lets see how Blanton does first.

    Tebow will rise up and confound the so called “experts.” He will supersede all expectations and wow the New York crowds.

    It would be cool to see Ole’ Bullet Wound Burress and Ole’ Stab Wound Marshall play in the same Division again.

    Hey we all shoot ourselves in the foot/leg sometimes, usually only figuratively, but still

    I’ve stubbed my toe but never shot myself in the foot.

    Vikings will shoot themselves in the foot if they keep Webb and let the Hyphen go. Seriously, come on!!!

  123. By Immure on Aug 27, 2012 | Reply

    Still to early to see how the Hyphen will turn out. He did Ok in one preseason game in the fourth against a 3rd defense and he still threw a INT. Lets see how he does against the Texans. Webb did pretty good against the Chargers. If Hyphen wants to make the active roster two things need to happen against Houston.

    1. He needs to tear it up.
    2. Webb needs to stink up the joint.

    I wasn’t going to watch the last game of the preseason because of the interuptions by Lieber and his cotton picking ‘interviews’. However, changed my mind. I do have a mute buttion, and I do want to watch and see how Joe and whats his name play.

  125. By Immure on Aug 27, 2012 | Reply

    Bluebird- You do realize that its not Leber’s fault that the televised plays get interrupted with his interviews. That’s who ever the director or producer is fault. He just does an interview when they tell him to. He has no say on when or who to interview.

    Name one thing Tebow does better than Webb? O, and another thing, i went to three days of practices in Mankato and yes Bethel-Thompson has a strong arm but he was about as accurate as Tebow!!

    Webb is already in. Its between the hyphen and sage

    Titus get stuck with Tebow on one of your fantasy teams?

    By-the-by investing in Webb is a waste of time and money.

  130. By JE on Aug 27, 2012 | Reply

    Are you trying to tell me that JWebb is not worth a 6th round pick that we are paying the league minimum?? Cmon dude!! Webb is total bargain and he is only getting better.

    I thought the Hyphen will not play– OTKalil said that I think.

    @JE,

    There is predjudice against Joe Webb. Maybe it’s because he played at UAB, and they don’t like players from there. The jones-boy don’t know!

    @ Jones

    No one is prejudice against Joe Webb. Let it go already. Most people love Joe Webb just not as a QB. It has nothing to do with school or color and everything to do with inconsistet performance. I dislike to have any bad player starting no matter where they came from or what color they are.

    Past Vikings QB’s that I disliked

    Tarvaris Jackson
    Gus Ferrotte
    Brad Johnson
    Daunte Culpepper
    Sean Salisbury
    Wade Wilson

    Past Vikings QB’s that I liked

    Brett Favre
    Daunte Culpepper (for 2 years)
    Randall Cunningham (one of my all time favorites)
    Jeff George
    Warren Moon
    Rich Gannon (although they only let him start like half a season)
    an the rest were before my time

    Verdict is still out on Ponder

    Please put the race card to rest

    Cash your reality checks and keep plenty of cold ones around – we’re gonna need them to get thru this season. This ship still has way too many leaks and our schedule is not filled with rainbows, unicorns and lemondrops. And Spielman, don’t think we fans haven’t forgotten about you – you haven’t exactly filled the pipeline with talent these past years, have you? And Frazier, you and your crack staff need to turn the intensity up to 11. This team is not feared by anyone.
