    Just my 2cents on that one. I used Moss merely to illustrate the point that you don't have your #1 guy as your KR if you can at all help it.

    I never really thought Moss would have made that great of a kick returner, but that's just my opinion.

    Re: K. Robinson return kickoffs & misc. stuff from KFFL

    Someone made a comment about moving Kleinny back to FB. With Richardson we don't need that. Just imagine Memo or Taylor running behind Birk, Hutch, Mckinnie, Richardson and Kleinny (if JK lines up at TE on left side for one package)?!!

    Whoa....
    Halo 4. Start another fight.

    Ummm . . . didn't K-ROB go to the Probowl as a KR Specialist?

    Let him return kicks if he wants to.

    We've got other receivers . . . IF . . . he gets hurt. Time for M-ROB, T-WILL, and others to earn their paychecks!
    Yes, he did. So what? He wasn't the Vikings supposed #1 option at WR.

    Now he is. And he's making the big $$$ because of it. So you protect that asset at all costs.

    Randy Moss would have been the best KR of all-time - but he was back there only once in a purple moon because he was too valuable to get hurt.

    =Z=
    i agree sleepagent. he was great at kick return. how is he our #1 receiver? because his contract was up at an opportune time? he still has to prove on the field he is #1. i like k-rob a lot, but he is not at this point our #1. we can't all forget taylor because kr got the big contract.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Vikings | Team has room for both tight ends
    Thu, 11 May 2006 07:03:00 -0700

    Sean Jensen, of the Pioneer Press, reports Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress said there would be plenty of room for Vikings' TEs Jim Kleinsasser and Jermaine Wiggins in his offense. "I think you have to keep throwing fastballs at the defense," Childress said. "If you're standing with that personnel package on the field, I think you can become predictable."


    Vikings | Open competition at punter
    Thu, 11 May 2006 07:00:33 -0700

    Sean Jensen, of the Pioneer Press, reports Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress said rookie P John Torp will compete for the job with incumbent P Chris Kluwe. Kluwe is coming back from knee surgery. "There's a competition there," Childress said. "They'll both have a chance to win."
    I think that JK could be a dominant FB in this league. Better than SD's Neal and even Richardson. I know that is not what most football players want to (in his case) be demoted to, but he is good at it. I guess it depends on which set your team wants to run.

    Kluwe, if healthy, wins the job. Man that guy can kick. He probably hasn't had the chance to practice much coming off injuries.
    kleinsasser is far better blocking on the corner than he is as a lead blocker behind the line of scrimmage..when you have one of the best FBs in the NFL, then why move jimmy to that spot?..if you have richardson and kleinsasser on the field, and you run plays to the left, that gives you kleinsasser, richardson, hutchinson, mckinnie, birk all blocking to one side on a running play, how are you going to stop that?

    k rob has proven he can do it at an all pro level, so until somebody comes in and does a better job than him, leave him there..id rather start every possession around our 40 rather than our 20

    This can be a scary situation, but I hate to keep second guessing Childress. I guess we'll see how everything pans out when the season begins. I have to be honest and say that I'm worried.

    I agree that Hoag should be given a tryout..... I have a couple buddies that raced against him in track in college.... THey said he is crazy fast.... I don't know if he has the change of direction needed to get extra yards, but if there is a hold I am sure he will go untouched and will not get run down from behind. It is worth a tryout at least.

    Thanks Lotza!
