The possibility of a rotation interests me. Remember, Suh was on the field for a higher percentage of his team’s plays last season than any other NFL defensive tackle. He’s young and in good shape, but strategically pulling back those snaps might be best for everyone.
Most daunting for the Vikings’ status is the anticipated rise of the Detroit Lions. If Matthew Stafford can stay healthy, the Lions will feature a handful of exceptionally talented players — Stafford, Calvin Johnson, Ndamukong Suh, Nick Fairley and Kyle Vanden Bosch.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
