Shaping up to be a great 2012 Draft for Spielman. Kalil, Smith, Walsh, Ellison, and Robison all making significant impacts.

It's been the year of the rookie kicker, without question.

Between Zuerlein, Tucker, Walsh, there is a bunch of fresh faced boots who've taken the league by storm. Zuerlein's whole 'Legatron' thing has gained him some obvious notoriety over the other two, but I'm beyond happy with Blair Walsh.

Besides, it's nice to have a Walsh on the Vikes again. Anyone remember Chris? He was a fan favorite from '98!

He was a Viking from 94-02. What did he do in '98?

Blair Walsh calls into fantasy football podcast yesterday.


He called Rudolph "Hamburger Helper". I wonder the origins of that nickname since I heard it here first.

Perhaps Blair is among us? <creepy music>

Robison was 2007.
Robinson was 2012.

the kid deserves his love today too.

what he'd have, three FG's and several booming, booming kickoffs to the back of the endzone?

Applause


The announcers seemed very complimentary, almost surprised, at his kickoffs.

Rookie kicker Blair Walsh nailed field goals of 42, 36 and 26 yards to improve to 12 for 13 in his young career -- most by a Minnesota rookie since Mike Mercer made nine in the franchise's inaugural 1961 season.

Walsh sets another team kicking record.

Walsh: "I'm being smart with my reps and trying not to over-do it. The coaching staff has been awesome, keeping me fresh and ready to go. At the same time, they've been testing me to make sure I'm mentally and physically ready to go on every Sunday."

Rookie place-kicker Blair Walsh was sick to his stomach and got very little sleep the night before he went 4 for 4 on field-goal attempts in the Vikings' 38-26 loss to the Washington Redskins. The backup plan if Walsh couldn't kick? Punter Chris Kluwe.

"I was ready," Kluwe said at Vikings practice Thursday. "I can't promise that it would have been any good, but I would have been ready."

A place-kicker on his high school team in Los Alamitos, Calif., Kluwe remembers booting a 60-yard field goal in those days but he rarely tries place-kicking any more. If needed, he said, "I'll muddle through it."

When the Vikings went to the Metrodome on Wednesday, Kluwe decided it might be wise to try a field goal. He lined one up from 50 yards.

And?

"Put it right through the middle," he said.

Greg Zuerlein made his first 15 field goals this season, including a franchise-record 60-yarder, before missing three in a row last Sunday in a 17-14 loss at Miami. Zuerlein failed to connect from 37, 52 and 66 yards. He took blame for the defeat, saying that he, ďdidnít do my job and it cost us the game.Ē

The week has gone by slowly for the high-energy Zuerlein, who canít wait to redeem himself against the Green Bay Packers.
