"The very first time I saw Sidney Rice run a pass pattern in a scrimmage, he was racing across the middle and our quarterback threw the ball low," Strickland said......

Re: Rice already has long history as a difference-maker...Through 11 games, the Vikings have completed 155 passes, which are 24 fewer than the next lowest total (Oakland's) in the NFL. Rice has 15.5 percent of the Vikings' receptions and half of their six receiving touchdowns.
Add it up and only one rookie wideout -- Kansas City's Dwayne Bowe -- is having more of an impact on his team than Rice...
Sad statistic, not surprising though, regarding the Vikings' pass offense.
It's nice to see Rice rising from the ashes though.
