    Re: Robinson & Sharper to Compete in Skills Competition

    I think its awesome that Robinson and Sharper are our All-Stars. Think, just a year ago, these were two guys we picked up off the scrap heap.

    I feel proud that they are Vikings considering how far they've both come in one year.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    Thanks Singers. That is awesome, I can't wait to watch it. The only sad part about it is the fact that we won't be able to watch them again until Sept..

    ok, koren isnt in the hands event because he is on the team as a special teamer, not a receiver (notice only receivers are in the event).

    As for the fastest man, Koren might be able to compete, but Sharper would get torched. Jerome Mathis ran about a 4.25 at the combine last year (Williamson about a 4.30). Koren might be able to run about a 4.35, but I doubt Sharper can crack 4.60. Sharper has good speed for safety, but putting him in the fastest man event would be a joke.


    Chuch.

    Wow, what a great showing by our Vikes! :lol:

    I just got done watching it, and Koren and Darren both competed in the same competition. Koren blew it dropped the pass towards the end of his run and Darren caught the pass and tripped over his own feet and fumbled the ball! Gotta love our boys.
