    Aundrae Allison - THe Vikings other deep threat

    The Vikings feel that WR Aundrae Allison can improve enough as a receiver to be another deep threat along with Bernard Berrian. Allison has caught the ball extremely well in organized training activities and appears to have improved following his rookie season......

    Does that mean they don't see Rice as a deep threat?

    course not, then might entail doing a little research ..lol Far easier to just pull a name off the roster and use that.
    Personally I think both Rice and Allison will make big strides this year - literallly ! Bringing Berrian will ease the pressure on them and TJ and, with TJ not so bogged down, will make them much more of an active part of the offense.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Allison shure is fast. This guy is extremely athletic. He's very quick and agile and when he gets the ball in his hands, much can happen. I think Allison is the fastest WR on our roster, next to Berrian of course

    Re: Aundrae Allison - THe Vikings other deep threat

    I like what I saw from Allison last year and expect his season this year to be better. Just that one year of experience for Rice and Allison should go along way. I really like the future at WR. Bernard Berrian, Sidney Rice, Aundre Allison and Jaymar Johnson make a really nice combo of WR's and quite frankly that 4 WR set has alot of explosive playmakers. These guys are all fast and quick, they fit the mold of what WR needs to do in this offense.

    The one thing I question with Allison is his mental game, I heard an interview the other day and didn't like all the things I heard he just needs to think before he speaks. He's still a young kid but the future is bright and he has a chip on his shoulder.

    I would guess that Allison is faster then Berrian...maybe, the fastest on the team.
    Says 4.39 in the 40 here...I believe I saw Berrian was a 4.6...?

    And he's shiftty.
    He just seems to find a hole and burst through it.
    Its not just that year of experience for Rice and Allison, but also for Wade, Ferguson, and Shank in this system too.
    Instead of one returning WR we've got 5!!
    I've usually heard third year is the big break out for many WRs, so, we may be looking even better in a year or two.

    Add in another year for TJack too, behind our running game, and Dr.Z might just be right!
    I'm freakin stoked about how this team is coming together!!!
    And, I'm even more excited to see our defense shine!!!

    Re: Aundrae Allison - THe Vikings other deep threat

    Another little blurb on Allison here:
    http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/report/MIN/10871725

    Sudden impact: Wide receiver Aundrae Allison - The speedy receiver had little impact on offense last season finishing with only eight receptions. However, Allison looked very good in OTA practices and minicamp and caught several deep passes from quarterback Tarvaris Jackson.
    It also sounds like he's hooking up with Berrian deep too!
    ;D

    Re: Aundrae Allison - THe Vikings other deep threat

    I've loved this pick up on draft day 2007.
    I thought we got a steal in the 5th round.
    I've seen Allison play and he knows how to find the endzone.
    I look forward to him having an effective year.
    Maybe not superstar numbers but definately effective.

    Re: Aundrae Allison - THe Vikings other deep threat

    I have to start this by saying I like Allison alot. I hope he one day becomes one of our starters and has a pro-bowl type year.


    That being said, he has a grand total of 8 catches for a whopping 122 yards in his career to date. Now even a total homer has to know that there is absolutely no way in hell a casual fan can gleam squat out of that type of statistic. Now the coaches, who see him in practice and behind the scenes may be able to get at least a marginal feeling about his potential, but as a fan...
    not so much.

    No, I see Rice as more of a TO type player (minus the attitude).
    He's big and tall (not quite as big), and isn't scared to go up and get the ball, but he's not know as being the fastest guy on the field.
    Allison is much faster, and would probably make a better deep threat as long as he can adjust to the ball unlike a certain reciever we all love to hate.
