    Evidence of how far the Vikings' wide receiver corps has progressed since Brad Childress took over as coach in 2006 came this week when Aundrae Allison was jettisoned only five days into training camp.
    More like evidence of how the receiving corps has been bungled by Brad "no prima donnas" Childress.

    Three years ago, a player with Allison's abilities not only would have made the roster but could have seen significant playing time. Those were the days when players such as Travis Taylor, Troy Williamson, Marcus Robinson, Billy McMullen and Bethel Johnson graced the depth chart.
    Childress got stuck with Williamson, but he drafted Allison and traded for McMullen.
    Let's hope Harvin, Rice, and Jaymar Johnson can help make up for those past drafts.
    Barrien was a good pick up as a free agent, but his value has been diminished by the lack of a great quarterback.

    As far as Wade goes, he is not a great threat receiver nor a tall red zone possession type receiver.
    I don't see great route running from him either.
    There are likely receivers ready for the NFL that can take his place on the roster at a lower cost.

    Considering that between Tice and Childress, the Vikings could easily have Aaron Rodgers at quarterback and Greg Jennings at receiver, there is blame to go around.
    The Packers did a better scouting job than the Vikings at
    Really? Because he had his statistically best year last year, in yards and TDs... maybe you should take another look at that comment.
    then just think about how good he could actually be with a QB who coudl get him the ball consistently
    Still, his comment about Berrian's value diminishing was incorrect. Once we see Jackson in there for a full year, and not pulled because of a spineless/worthless coach... I'm sure we'll see Berrian break 1,000 yards.

    People just type what they think sometimes without checking the facts.
    LMAO

    You should check your facts.

    Berrians yards were mainly made when Gus, not TJ was the QB. In fact, over 10% of his 964 yard season total came on the 1 99 yard play from Gus against the bears.

    He had 4 games of over 100 yards with Gus as the QB while he had only one over 80(81) with Jackson as the QB.

    Here are his stats with TJ

    Game 1- 3 for 38
    Game 2- 0 for 0
    Game 14- 3 for 39
    Game 15- 1 for 41
    Game 16- 2 for 18
    Game 16- 4 for 81.

    And the playoff game 2 for 36.

    With Gus he had games of
    79
    78
    110
    131
    81
    104
    0
    46
    6
    122


    Now, If i were Berrian I know who I would rather play with between the two of them. At any rate, looking at what the BB/TJ combination did last year, to say Jackson is what is needed to get him to 1000 yards is laughable.

    Sorry, I just had to check the facts.
    Did you even read the entire discussion? (I'll answer that for you... No, you did not.)

    I realize I said Jackson could get Berrian 1,000 yards... but it had nothing to do with the original post.

    All I said was that Berrian had his best season last year in terms of TDs and Yards... which is true... and that his value hasn't diminished.

    If you disagree with that, ok... but not sure what you're trying to get at with the post above.

    Yeah

    I read the entire string and I don't feel Berrian's value is diminishing. But you made the following statement

    Once we see Jackson in there for a full year, and not pulled because of a spineless/worthless coach... I'm sure we'll see Berrian break 1,000 yards.

    People just type what they think sometimes without checking the facts.
    I simply checked the facts and discovered you have no idea what you are talking about if you think Jackson is going to be the QB to put Berrian over the 1000 yard mark if he is the QB.

    Now do you know what I am getting at or is factual data not good for you?
    [/quote]

    We could make a sig/avatar bet on it.

    If Berrian gets 1,000 yards off Jackson, you have to have the sig/avatar of my choosing.

    BB is going to have a hard time to break 1000, given IMO Syd and Percy will getting some of BB's balls.
    The Vikes also are going to remain a running team.

    What BB needs to hope for is the Vikes start fast, because when the Vikes have a good lead Chilly is more likely to throw long to make the D backoff the LOS.
    Also, TJ % is much better when the Vikes have a lead.

    BB averaged about 36 yards per game with Jackson at QB which equates to taking 27 games to get to 1000 so unless they extend the season by 9 games I am good. Not only that but Jackson isn't even going to be the starter so you are behind already.

    Any bets on sage getting him 1000 yards while Jackson holds the clipboard? ;D

    Now, If i were Berrian I know who I would rather play with between the two of them. At any rate, looking at what the BB/TJ combination did last year, to say Jackson is what is needed to get him to 1000 yards is laughable.

    Sorry, I just had to check the facts.
    Did you even read the entire discussion? (I'll answer that for you... No, you did not.)

    I realize I said Jackson could get Berrian 1,000 yards... but it had nothing to do with the original post.

    All I said was that Berrian had his best season last year in terms of TDs and Yards... which is true... and that his value hasn't diminished.

    If you disagree with that, ok... but not sure what you're trying to get at with the post above.

    Yeah

    I read the entire string and I don't feel Berrian's value is diminishing. But you made the following statement

    Once we see Jackson in there for a full year, and not pulled because of a spineless/worthless coach... I'm sure we'll see Berrian break 1,000 yards.

    People just type what they think sometimes without checking the facts.
    I simply checked the facts and discovered you have no idea what you are talking about if you think Jackson is going to be the QB to put Berrian over the 1000 yard mark if he is the QB.

    Now do you know what I am getting at or is factual data not good for you?

    We could make a sig/avatar bet on it.

    If Berrian gets 1,000 yards off Jackson, you have to have the sig/avatar of my choosing.

    Yeah, I'll take the sig bet.

    BB averaged about 36 yards per game with Jackson at QB which equates to taking 27 games to get to 1000 so unless they extend the season by 9 games I am good. Not only that but Jackson isn't even going to be the starter so you are behind already.

    Any bets on sage getting him 1000 yards while Jackson holds the clipboard? ;D

    Re: Multitalented group not receiving corps of old

    I'm thinking we need to start having a Wager forum so we can keep track of all of them through out the season...

    The Vikes also are going to remain a running team.

    What BB needs to hope for is the Vikes start fast, because when the Vikes have a good lead Chilly is more likely to throw long to make the D backoff the LOS.
    Also, TJ % is much better when the Vikes have a lead.
    That's like turning around all that makes sense to me. You throw it (deep) more when you're leading? I'm pretty sure I've seen Chilly criticised about going away from the run when you're trailing. Long story short, he just abandons the run every time.

    Sometimes, I get the feeling that AP went to the wrong place. Chilly would've been so much better with a good passer than with a great rusher. Don't get me wrong, AP's amazing in purple as well, but for the team in the long stretch, a great QB would've been better.

    Anyway, as to Berrian, I'd say that he'd have a pretty decent chance to break the 1000 yard mark with Sage as well. He threw it to his main target, Andre Johnson, over in Texas quite a few times. Johnson's catches and yardage in games that Sage played : 9 for 131, 4 for 62, 7 for 66, 4 for 55, 10 for 116 and 7 for 75. Then again, who wouldn't throw it to Andre Johnson and those numbers aren't amazing, but still, that's 41 of his 116 completions. That's a whopping 35% of his competions to one target. Keep in mind that they do have a great TE and a decent receiving HB.

    Don't know how much that states, but it made me less bored for a few minutes.

    It is kinda backwards, but if you look at the Bears-Vikings game at Minneapolis last year..
    BB had a 99 yard TD reception.
    In an obvious running situation.
    With AP.
    And that offensive line.
    As much as we all like to rip on Chilly's play calling (and we don't even know how much he's calling anyways..), that was the right call in that situation.
    And a good read by Gus (the ball wasn't even supposed to go to BB, but to Shank..
    but Peanut got sucked into the Shank coverage which left BB open).

    Either way, I'm excited about the Vikes WR corps..
    They've had some time to develope the young-uns and with BB in his second year with the system, things only look up.
    The only drawback is durability.
    BB and Rice haven't been known to be iron men.
    I can't wait for this season..
