    My point is if people think that Childress can make something out of McMahon, then why the hell couldn't he when they were both in Philly?

    "Philadelphia is a place where I fit in," Baskett said. "To be starting my NFL career catching from Donovan McNabb. Who's a better quarterback that you can have throwing to you?
    Payton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Tom Brady, Matt Hasselbeck, Carson Palmer Drew Brees and Daunte Culpepper (depending on injury return form), probably Trent Green, Jake Delhomme, Brad Johnson, and Marc Bulger.

    Basically 1/3rd of the league's starting QB's.




























































    And Shaun Hill??

    I aid to myself right away "What the hell are they doing?"

    Baskett needed at least a year or two to prove himself. Who drafts a huge red zone target only to trade him for a nobody?

    Totally stupid move.

    We did not draft Baskett he was an Undrafted Free Agent, which means that all 32 teams passed on drafting him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This guy is not a sure thing even to make an NFL roster, let a lone be a Hall Of Famer like some people are acting like we traded one away!

    He has not caught 1 pass in the NFL, he was not drafted and he is not fast, he is a tall possession receiver that may have a shot in the NFL.

    The guy we traded Baskett for was a more proven player coming out of college, he is just as tall and he has 3 years experience in the NFL that Baskett does not.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Re: Baskett using snub as fuel at start of NFL career

    This time next year we'll be reading how Baskett burst onto the scene with the Eagles, making his first start in week 5, catching 3 passes for 39 yards and a TD.

    Ending his season with a stellar 19 catches for 224 yards and a TD. But, he's poised for a breakout season in year 2, after feeling snubbed when removed from the starting lineup after 3 weeks without a catch.

    CAN YOU SAY JERRY RICE???

    Don't use the "crappy conference" argument...it just makes you sound elitist...and look pretty stupid when people rattle off names like Walter Payton and Doug Williams and COUNTLESS others who have not only MADE the NFL, but have EXCELLED in the pro game!

    The main problem with that arguement is that I played against the Mountain West Conference, so if I am criticizing it, I am not elitist because I belong to said group. The Mountain West is not a passing conference, nor is the conference in which I played, the Great West. These two conferences are very good ground game conferences. There are alot of linemen and runningbacks that will end up in the NFL, but I highly doubt that any of the receivers that played in these conferences will amount to anything.

    My point is if people think that Childress can make something out of McMahon, then why the hell couldn't he when they were both in Philly?
    These players are not starters and will not have great careers in the NFL. They are role players that know the offense and may be able to help demonstrate things in practice, or in McMahon's case, may have to step in and actually play every once in a while. Just because McMahon still aspires to be a starting QB in the NFL does not mean that that is what Childress has in mind, and plus that motivates him to work hard, stay in shape, and create competiton within the QB ranks of the Vikings. There are 55 people on an NFL roster and only 22 start, that leaves alot of room for players such as these to play their specific toles on the football team without actually touching the field.

    Although Northern Colorado has moved to the Big Sky Conference for 2006, this player was played for them while they were still members of the Great West Conference:

    Yeah, played against him, but I can't remember which team drafted him. Personally, I think the guy is a waste of talent. He's a tall, thick, muscular, guy but he doesn't like going across the middle and doesn't fight for the ball. All in all the guy has the tools but just doesn't have the attitude, everybody owes him or something. Sounds alot like Baskett. So I will maintain my previous statement, I don't think that any of the receivers in these conferences will amount to anything.
