    Wade should be safe but who knows. Do we take a cap hit if Wade is cut? I haven't deen any younger guy stand out enough to replace him yet.
    They brought this young guy named Harvin in. But he hasn't panned out yet.

    Wade should be safe and deservingly so.
    He may not be a superstar, but he constantly gets the job done and has been our leading reciever for two years running.
    Hell, thats since coming here.
    Add to that, he just restructed his current contract with the team and took a hit on his pay, this tells me the team offered him a position and chance to play, if he was willing to restructure and take a pay cut, which is what happened.
    Wade is safe for now.

    Re: For many Vikings, closing arguments await

    I've seen Wade cut off routes, not pull off into the seam, and run patterns that the QB thought were not the correct ones.
    That was in his first year here though, so perhaps he has cleaned up his game.

    I do wonder how much not having great receivers has hurt the QB development as well as the receiver development not having a mentor.
    Randy Moss had Cris Carter and Jake Reed as mentors, and that really helped his quick development.
    Carter was a catch specialist, and Reed was one of the best downfield blocking receiver in the NFL.

    One thing that Brett Favre brings is some influence on the young receivers.
    When receivers don't find the seam, need to pull off, need to come back to the QB, or need to find the first down marker, Favre lets it be known what is wrong and what he expects.
    That is veteran leadership.

    Just got back from the game, man I wish Ian Johnson can make it on our practice squad if he gets released. I really think he could be a decent Back up. Not the fastest but runs hard

    Him and Albert Young are both great fits. It's a shame we have to let so many good players go.

    It is a shame, one will have to go.
    Tonight was Ian's night, but I've seen Young stand out more on others....Both play hard and do their best. I do believe that Ian is a step faster than Young though.







    What would kill me is, which LB do we let go?
    ALL !!!!!
    Of our LB's, starter or back-up, could easily start some where in the NFL on some team.
    Tough call there.






    Cook is our back-up Center now, and in a pinch, could still fill in at RT and probably Guard if it ever came down to it.
    So, Cook is good for another year or two.






    CB=
    I truly hope to see Paymah ( don't laugh at spelling, LMAO )
    Picked up from Denver, get the nod and a spot on our roster.
    He proved to me tonight and thru camp, he's a player who has earned his keep here.






    CB=
    McCauley, what the hell ever happened to this 3rd round draft pick of ours from 3 years ago?
    Man what a disapointment.
    He was considered the best, by many, coming out of college (Fresno State).
    But his Senior year slide has done nothing but continue with his NFL experience.
    Tonight, missed tackle after tackle, and played with very little gusto.
    I believe we cut ties with him now and keep Paymah, at least this would be my take on the battle those two have put up this season.







    Just some of my thoughts

    I think Ian can mature into a great back too, maybe a set place youngster when Chester retires....

    Both are great...I'm a pretty big Ian fan now though.
    Either way, a quality 3rd stringer with huge potential is about to be released.

    Re: For many Vikings, closing arguments await

    Ian Johnson outplayed Albert Young again, and Johnson gets cut?

    Oh yeah, Young had one good block.
    I guess that's enough for Chilly.

    Young just can't get into and through the same holes that Johnson can hit and make yardage on.
    Johnson drives while Young falls down.

    Johnson is bigger and faster too, and he has shown the ability to catch passes out of the backfield, so what is the deal here?


    Closing arguments?
    Was there even a chance for Johnson over Young?
