    I don’t think Pete should worry about McKinnie. I don’t think the Vikings have plans to keep him around. Could there be a greater consequence than his job? He’s like Birk was. On his last legs.

    I really hope that King is right about Vanden Bosch. That, with DT’s Suh or McCoy in the draft, would instantly make Detroit’s D-line one of the best it’s had since the early to mid-90′s.
    Out of nowhere Detroit would instantly have a very formidable front. Would be nice for a change.
