    I think the Vikings kinda jumped on the bandwagon of Burelson too early. I mean he was expected to replace Moss which definately didn't happen.
    Nobody expected him to replace Moss.
    Wasn't T-Will the replacement for Moss? :roll:

    Re: Burelson heading to Seattle

    Nate could never hope to replace Moss. he's nothing like moss. moss is a burner. he burns the DB for a long one, or he takes a short pass, and uses his speed to just plain outrun the db's. Burleson has decent speed, but is a better YAC type reciever. he uses his moves to avoid the tacklers.

    I wish Nate the best of luck in seattle, and too bad he couldn't stay here.


    one question tho, you say that the contract is really only 4 years, how do they get away with offering him a huge one that we would need to match, but as soon as we decline it turns into a 4 year contract?

    They could have said, it was a 50 year $50 million contract if they wanted, it just sounds better with bigger numbers. Plus there is probably a max on contract lengths.

    But................................

    After 4 years, they will either ask him to restructure or just release him before spending that kind of money on Burley. If they keep him, then they have to pay him the contract.

    That is how I interpreted it.

    That is how they poison pilled it, along with the 6 games in MN.

    Who is Alan Faneca? And what could he possibly say about that? We got both of seattles first round draft picks of 2001 for free. We drafted nate in 2003 in the 3rd round and we get a third round pick for him. Win Vikings all the way, anyone who disagrees needs to have their head examined.
    Your probably already aware of this, but Alan Faneca is the left guard for the Steelers and he's just as good or maybe even better than Steve Hutchinson.

    I know the Vikings got the best of the deal, but I just wanted to let everyone know that Faneca is on Hutchinson's level.

    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped

    Faneca is over rated! If you watched the Super Bowl, the long run by Parker was due to their RT, Barrett Brooks, making his block and not Faneca as the announcers kissed his arse in their monologue!

    Faneca is the best in the NFL. Sorry Hutch.

    Re: Burelson heading to Seattle

    So in a few years you think there is a chance Burleson might come back?
