    Comparing Sidney Rice to Plaxico Burress

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to do it,
    I was just wondering what Burress' 40 time was.
    Rice ran a 4.51 and he's 6-4 and 202, from yahoo sports he's an inch shorter and 30 lbs less than Burress, if they have identical 40 times I don't see why Rice can't be a #1, maybe if he beefs up a bit he can be, dunno what that would do to his speed though.

    Any comments?

    Re: Comparing Sidney Rice to Plaxico Burress

    What impressed me most about Burress last night was his hands and his concentration. His size helps, but that is not the number 1 factor in making a number 1 receiver.

    Rice had some catches this year where he showed that he might have the hands and the concentration to be a #1. Hopefully he can develop those skills, and not go into a sophmore slump.

    I'm excited to watch him develop.

    I was excited about T-Will too; but he's not at all like T-Will.

    No doubt Burress played great last night, but he did have that pretty big drop at like the 5 yard line, that catch coulda put that game away.

    I think Sid will be able to do all the catching that plax does, which is very impressive. But I don't think he will be as good after the catch, he just doesn't have that huge build like plaxiglass.

    He's only 21. No reason for him not to beef up. In the next 3 years he'll add 15 lbs of muscle easy. If i got paid to work out and play football, i'd be jacked as a mother.

    In addition I would add will. Burress had the will and desire to do what he had to against defensive corners who often get away with mugging the receivers. He wanted to show that he could be just as physical and did so.He wanted the ball and rose to the occasion. I see a little of that in Sydney.

    Sidney needs to physically mature. He, and all the Vikings receivers need to play a physical game against Green Bay if they want to win.

    "Sidney brings great size, sure hands and deceptive speed to the recruiting table. On film, it's his ability to catch anything close to him that really stands out. He's also an outstanding downfield blocker, reads coverages well and has tremendous jumping ability."

    The above quote was from his pre NFL days. The deceptive speed thing is a bit of a question as his times were not overly impressive. But as I recall, neither were Jerry Rice's times.
    Hopefully he will be one of those guys that can get open despite lack of speed.

    Aundre Allison is faster. I think they will both be very good in time.

    Whoopie sure helped him look like a superhero.
    I like the upside of Rice over Buress.

    Buress has matured into a bonified number 1 receiver over the years. Its gonna take some time for rice but guys that tall don't necessary have to be that fast.
