Ben Leber's Thoughts On Fixing The Vikings

Ben Leber's Thoughts On Fixing The Vikings
BRANDON, SD -

Vermillion native, and former Vikings Linebacker, Ben Leber is spreading the word on healthy eating habits and the importance of staying active.  He also shared his thoughts on his former team with KELOLAND Sports.

On the heels of a 5-10-1 season, change is a given for the Minnesota Vikings, but former linebacker Ben Leber cautions against making too many moves.

"I would hold back on everyone thinking that you have to make drastic changes.  We've seen time and time again that making small changes can make a big difference.  I think a couple of key guys...we know there are a lot of holes to fill on defense, but I really think a great defensive tackle and a great corner and possibly a good safety...so, three guys out of the six you really need can make a huge difference.  And then finding consistency at quarterback is all we're looking for on offense.  It's just a few players away from being a great team," former Vikings Linebacker Ben Leber said.

One potential free agent Leber isn't a fan of is quarterback Michael Vick.

"He can be a winning quarterback, but he's just that bridge type of quarterback.  So, if there's a guy to get in the draft at eight or even in the second round that can come in and play for eight to ten years, that should be their focus," Leber said.

Leber is a supporter of new head coach Mike Zimmer, as the Vikings look to establish a new identity.

"I think he's going to come in right away, and I think everybody already knows he's a no nonsense type of guy.  We hear that term all the time, but it's going to be a tough minded football team.  They're going to be aggressive.  He had a bunch of media guys in the other day to show film on how his defense works.  So, everybody in the media and the public are going to know this is what he wants his team to look like and everybody has a sense of purpose and a sense of direction every Sunday," Leber said.

Leber is currently a Fox College Football and NFL analyst, and is also working in radio in the Twin Cities.
