    Re: Michael Jenkins Makes Sense For The Vikings

    I gotta say, I don't have very high thoughts of Jenkins. He has never impressed me, but then again, I doesn't exactly watch a lot of Falcons games either. Give us Roddy White instead! Now that would be something.

    I don't think anyone ever said that Rice didn't make plays downfield. I think the point that was trying to be made was that Rice wasn't gonna run a 8 or a 9 route in the time a deep threat guy would.

    Given time, anyone can run a 8 or a 9 route but thats not how one is effective. One is effecitve when you can out run the CB and even the S who is giving help over the top.

    Rice never could do that unless of course the QB scrambled around for his life and gave him the time.
    The point I was trying to make with Rice is that he doesn't have to outrun the coverage to give you the same impact. Still demands a corner and safety, and can still get deep enough to create space for others.

    Very similar to TO's impact...although TO was much a bigger threat after the catch as well.

    And he isn't that slow. I think I posted 40 times on these guys before that show Sydney actually had faster times than Berrian coming out of college.

    I hear ya my friend. Although, I think his numbers were OK considering the scheme they run.

    I would think you could add 10-15 more to his totals considering the scheme Musgrove is gonna run.

    That is, unless you think for some reason Musgrove is gonna try to run the Falcons scheme, which I dont.

    Sounds like a great compliment to McChunky. Now all we need to do is trade AP for a marginal RB and we will have the trifecta.

    OK, I'm with you on that point. Its just that he isn't gonna get deep much. His best use is working the short to intermediate stuff and in the Red Zone were he can get there quick and either body the reciever out or out jump them.

    That isn't speed related.

    I think we can agree that Sydney is better utilized on short to intermediate routes, but that's simply because he is effective at it. Why waste his talents and energy by having him go deep every time, get a one trick pony for that job.

    I think Rice is quite capable of getting deep and being effective, it just doesn't make sense to isolate him in this role when he can offer much more. At least in what our offense has been running.

    Don't mind it, but would like to see Braylon or Floyd come in as well. Jenkins is a great run blocker so I'm not surprised at all to see him come in here.
