Great time to be a Vikes fan, this is the best and most balanced team we have had in 30 years.
But, there are areas of need as well. Backup QB has been addressed in a separate post, which leaves LB, RG/C, and Safety as my biggest concerns.
LB - Specifically Ben and EJ.
Leber, who seems to be a great guy and has been a great player for us, looked very slow at the end of last year. Is it just me or did he lose a big step about midway through last year. I really noticed it when EJ went down. Too compound my worries, I keep hearing that the LB's in a cover 2 need to be extra fast.
EJ is just a big question mark, great player, but can he come back from that horrific injury? If not Jasper Brinkley may be able to fill that position, but it would take time and this is a win now team.
Anyone see something different with Leber? Or will the return of EJ put Leber into a better position where he is not so exposed?
I am also very interested in what non-Vikings fans see as areas of need on the team, as a homer I often overrate some players while underrating others.
