Seals meet with U Jerry Kill wanted the Gophers to learn how to be tough, so he recruited two people associated with the U.S. Navy Seals -- Dave Morrison, who was a captain, and Mark Courrier, a former special welfare operator master chief -- to speak to the team Friday. ========================================== Special "welfare" operator? Well.......this is MN....

Spielman said he seen positives and negatives, about the young Vikes. He did not talk about the negatives, he is a member of the viking organization, and the goal of course is making all the $$$$ possible, the same as any business. It is all about, selling game tickets.

Allen reisner sounds like a good tight end name but did drop a critical pass.

I wouldn't pass to kleinsasser too much, very slow and flops too much when he catches the ball he doesn't fight for yardage instead plays dead and falls down, just keep him for blocking he cant run period.

Cook looked really bad at CB. He missed numerous tackles and was beat for the long TD pass. I know this is his second year and he missed alot of last year with an injury but he needs to pick it up. That O-line hasn't had much help from the draft or free agency this year or last.....it was a major problem last year and didn't look any better against Titans. I guess they still think Herrera is the answer at guard and Sully is the answer at center.....if that is the case it will be another long year for AD.

The only welfare a Seal is concerned about is his teams. So it should be "Mr. Mark Courrier, a former special warfare operator master chief". In other words one of the baddest dudes on the planet.
