    That was not a deep threat. That was one great play by him, with tons of YAC, even though he is by far the slowest WR on our team, maybe in the NFL.

    Anyways, asking Allison to start and Griffin/McCauley to fill in for Winfield is a bit much. Allison is a project, and Winfield has 6 tackles in one half. I think we are in trouble without those guys. I still expect playoffs, but winning without those guys is much tougher.

    Re: Injuries to Winfield, Rice could be serious

    I sure hope that they are alright. I would hate to lose either of them in the playoffs.

    But remember guys, sometimes new stars are revealed when injuries happen. Sometimes injuries can make a team, not break it.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    Poor choice of words (Deep threat) for that I apologize but do you really think we have or need a deep threat at this point?
    What we need is a guy who can catch a ball somewere around 10 -30 yards from the line of scrimmage and get YAC just like he did last night.

    As to your point at the end, like winning with them wasn't gonna be tough either my friend.
    ;D

    Maybe I shouldn't pick on just one little statement, but I guess I will. That is ridiculous to say, how can you say that after watching Mike Williams play for the Lions. He isn't exactly fast, but he isn't the slowest thats for sure. There are many slower then him.

    One other point to notice with Greenway is I saw him tackle with his shoulder one time.
    Luckily it worked becasue if it didn't all he did was push the guy toward the endzone.
    If he would have maintained his balance he was probably gone.
    I don't remember which receiver it was for CHI.

    Re: Injuries to Winfield, Rice could be serious

    Winfield being out would hurt - but the other guys have shown that they can step up in his absence.

    Rice, on the other hand, is a pretty important part of our passing offense IMHO.
    I hope he in back in time for the playoffs.

    Agreed. Ferguson is doing what we brought him here to do, and doing a good job of it.

    Slowest in the NFL was an overstatement, but he was damn slow in the open field on that play.

    Re: Injuries to Winfield, Rice could be serious

    Just read on another site that at Childress' press conference it was said that Rice has a sprained ankle (they said they are working on rehab with him)....and Winfield has a strained pectoral muscle.
    Hopefully this information is completely accurate and they are not blowing smoke. If thats the case....they should be able to play if we make it to the playoffs.
    No confirmation yet on the Vikes web site.

    Re: Injuries to Winfield, Rice could be serious

    Injuries are confirmed in the Star/Tribune newspaper
    *CB Antoine Winfield was diagnosed today with a strained pectoral muscle near his left shoulder, coach Brad Childress said today. As we learned earlier this season, a strain is a partial tear. Winfield said this morning on KFAN-1130 that the shoulder was sore and a little swollen. Childress was non-committal about Winfield’s availability for Sunday’s game against Washington. Because of a short practice week, among other reasons, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Winfield miss that game.

    *The same goes for WR Sidney Rice, who has what the Vikings are calling a sprained ankle. Rice appeared to be in severe pain on the sideline and in the locker room after suffering the injury, but Childress said it was diagnosed as a sprain.
