Any chance of Audie starting if Erin leaves in free agency? I still remember the intercepted 2 passes on consecutive plays returning both for touchdowns which is sweet! Vikings still need a linebacker in the draft though...

Doubtful. He barely was a special teams contributor. Tyrone Mckenzie would start before Cole does.

the back to back INT's you reference were in pre-season too.

most anything can happen in those games.

Count me in the minority. I'm hoping Audie Cole wins a starting spot on our team. I think he has great instincts and a good feel for the game. You can't teach those attributes.

Look I hope Audie Cole has a great camp and wins the starting spot to given he outplays the competition. But I would want to give him some tough competition by brining in other LBs.

I think Audie Cole is a better fit at WLB than MLB personally. I worry about Cole's ability to take on blocks and be a consistent tackler in the middle. I think he would do just fine at WLB. Realistically, he was a 7th rd pick so his potential is likely severely limited.

Then again, Erin Henderson went undrafted and he has been a starter, although a poor one in the Vikings scheme.

You may be right, I am not very impressed with Jasper and Erin is terrible, that is why I would like to see Audie start, he can not be any worse than Jasper and Erin

but that might not be enough of a justification to start him.

There is a justification to start Audie and that is 2 picks returns for touchdowns in 2 plays and Jasper and Erin could not even do that Laughing

But yeah, it is preseason, I would have been more impressed if that was in the regular season

i know you're kidding, but watch this...

Joe Webb has played very well in pre-season games, including big scampers against the 49ers. let's start 'em!

One of his INTs was off Brad Smith. He plays WR.

But he blew in the Packers playoff game, he does not deserve to start

Cole also doesn't deserve to start based off of two pre-season plays is the point.
