THAT WAS FAST

[ad#300x250inpost]

A day after putting left tackle Bryant McKinnie on the reserve/non-football injury list for coming to camp reportedly approaching 400 pounds (400! 330 is quite a bit for a lineman), the Vikings cut his ass, elevating the newly-signed Charlie Johnson to be the presumptive starter.

There’s a lot of hand-wringing out there about what this will do to an offensive line that didn’t exactly have a stellar year last year. John Sullivan is coming off a disappointing season, Anthony Herrera is coming back from injury, and Phil Loadholt had some issues last year as well.

I guess we could do worse at left tackle, but given that his replacement will be the guy who used to protect Peyton Manning‘s blind side, I’ve got a bit of confidence that we’ll do all right.

It seemed particularly fitting that McKinnie turned to TMZ to spin his release as a desire to get out of his contract.

TMZ. A gossip site. Not even a football gossip site like ProFootballTalk. A plain old celebrity gossip site. McKinnie always did seem more interested in the celebrity aspect of Pro Footballdom than his actual play on the field.

I don’t know what I’ll do, now. With McKinnie and Naufahu Tahi no longer on the roster, who will I have to rant about?

I guess there’s always Bernard Berrian, but now that his contract has been redone there’s not as much reason to bitch about him.
