    Bernard Berrian defends himself

    My take all along is that Berrian has been asked to fill a role he's not suited for. Injured receiver Sidney Rice has the physical makeup and skills to outfight cornerbacks for the ball even when covered. Berrian is a speed merchant with good open-field running ability. Asked Monday how he defined his role, Berrian said: "Stretch the field." He and Rice are "definitely two different receivers," he added.

    I agree. If the Vikings want to take advantage of Berrian's skills, jump balls and post patterns against double teams might not be the way to do it.

    Finally, someone doing some actual reporting instead of just throwing the "Berrian isn't carrying the load" crap.

    Been saying this alot lately......BB isn't that type of reciever. Its absolutely insane to think he could come in and play anything other than the X in this scheme.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Re: Bernard Berrian defends himself

    I agree that BB has gotten a bit of a bad rap this year.....he's being asked to be Sidney Rice and he's not.

    Play calling has been stupid. They need to slash him across the middle.

    But he needs to shake off the criticism and go after that ball more aggressively even if he can't do it as well as Rice.

    He's letting the criticism impact his confidence and become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    Re: Bernard Berrian defends himself

    Then what is he supposed to do?
    1)catch slant routes? nope has no hands and is scared to get hit?

    2)catch the deep ball? i guess if he can catch it and he is wide open because he cant fight for the ball

    3)quick hitch and break a tackle? nope brcause you cant throw the ball hard at him, it will blow threw his hands.

    4)block? nope, he jogs down the field and looks behind him to see whats going on. (please tell me i am not the only one who see's this? he stopped AP at least 3 times on 10+ yard runs last week)

    I GOT IT!!! punt returns!!!! oh thats right, he dropped 2 so far this season.

    He is making $42 million in six years. i know what we can do with him!! CUT HIS SORRY A$$!! make a move on Vincent Jackson. BTW Sidney Rice is making $550,000 this year in his final year of his contract. im sure he is going to brake his back fr us when he comes back

    I think BB can catch and will catch.

    Much ado about nothing.

    Re: Bernard Berrian defends himself

    We shall see.

    I predict he will catch passes.

    You predict he will jump over the moon.

    I'll be right.

    You'll be wrong.

    Re: Bernard Berrian defends himself

    god i hope he can catch some passes. he is getting paid millions of dollars.

    thats right he did catch one pass. the fake spike. he really looked ready for that one. if he could of only broke one tackle he would have scored but he didnt.

    Remember he is getting paid BIG bucks. He needs to make BIG plays happen otherwise he is a waste of money.

    Really watch him next game. when the ball is snapped you will know if its a run (cause he will jog)then he will stand in front of the CB with his head turned and if its ran away from him you will not see him go and try to make a block down field ( which he should because AP is known to cut back and break one off). if its a pass he will run a half ass route. if the QB is in trouble you will not see him try and get open. If its thrown somewhere else you will not see him block

    Same as I see.

    Berrian also cuts off routes over the middle if he was not the primary because Favre might throw it to Berrian if he actually gets open.

    Re: Bernard Berrian defends himself

    Berrian sounds like an idiot here.

    While I agree that he is getting a lot of unfair blame ... he sounds like a whiner who is saying, "Why is everyone picking on me?"

    He needs to shut up, address it with Bevell and Favre and make the noise go away by performing. Simple as that.

    Plus it is more than the receiving. Guy can't even catch a punt.
