Thread: 'One Season' has surgery..

Jenkins did have 1 more TD than Rice, but he also played in 2 more games. Still Rice had more total receiving yards, averaged more YPC & had more YPG. Go ahead, Google it yourself.
I could care less what each player was paid, that's up to the teams/owners. I don't expect salary increases to be directly proportional to production like some here do. Owners pay what they want to pay, often times overpaying. Do you really believe Rice should have scored 5.6 times more TD's than those two combined simply because he was paid 5.6 times as much?
Did you expect AD to rush for over 3,800 yards & score 36 TD's simply because he was paid 3 times as much in 2011 as he was in 2010?
Bottom line as I've stated several times now & my point is still valid, we did not upgrade the position. The Vikings have failed to do that at other positions by trying to plug in other teams castaways & hoping they'll become stars.
Thus it should come as no surprise to people that with those downgrades the Vikings had yet another bad year.

Sidney Rice could be done in Seattle, barring a reduced deal
Rice is due to earn a base salary of $8.5 million in 2014, an amount that his past performance and current health won’t justify. With a post-June 1 designation, the Seahawks could shed the contract with a $1.2 million cap charge in 2014 and 2015, according to a source with knowledge of the deal.Rice had 15 catches for 231 yards and three touchdowns in eight games this season. Last year, he had 50 catches for 748 yards and seven scores in 16 starts.
It seems that Rice will be sticking around only if he agrees to significantly reduce his pay for next year, and beyond. Given that no one else will be paying him $8.5 million for 2013

However when it comes to assessing players on the roster on the basis of performance and ability then our coaching staff/FO can't see past their noses.Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
