    That's pretty unfair, imo.


    He's been a very solid player for us.
    He's not a superstar or anything, but he's definitely a quality receiver.
    ok maybe a bum is a little harsh.. but he wouldn't start for 99% of any team in the NFL and he's our leading receiver.. that should tell you all you need to know...

    let's go down the list shall we?

    Dallas - WIlliams/Crayton - Nope
    New York - Hixon/Smith/Nicks- Nope
    Philly - Jackson/Williams/Maclin- Nope
    Washington - Moss/Randle El- Nope

    Buffalo - Owens/Evans- Hell Nope
    Miami - Ginn/Camarillo/Bess- Nope
    New England - Moss/Welker- HELL Nope
    Jets - Stucky/Cotchery- Nope

    Arizona - Boldin/Fitz- Hell Nope
    San fran - Crabtree/Bruce/Morgan- Nope
    seattle - Housh/Branch- Nope
    St. Louis - Avery / Burton?? who? ok maybe he could start here...

    Baltimore - Mason/Clayton- Nope
    Cincy - Johnson/Coles- Nope
    Cleveland - Edwards/Stallworth/Cribbs- Nope
    Pittsburgh - Ward/Holmes- Nope

    Chicago - Hester/Davis/Bennett- Nope
    Detroit - Johnson/Johnson- Nope
    greenbay - Jennings/Driver- Hell Nope

    Denver - Marshall/Royal- Nope
    Kansas City - Bowe/Bradley/Ingram- Nope
    Oakland - Walker/Higgins/Heyward-bey- Nope
    San Diego - Chambers/Jackson- Nope

    Atlanta - WHite/Jenkins- Nope
    Carolina - Smith/Muhammad- Nope
    New orleans - Moore/Colston- Nope
    Tampa Bay - Bryant/Clayton- Nope

    Houston - Johnson/walter- Nope
    Indy - Wayne/Gonzalez- Nope
    Jacksonville - Holt/Northcutt - maybe
    Tennessee - Washington/Gage/Britt - Nope they gladly let him go so we know he wont here...

    so ok, i was wrong, he'd probably start for about 2 other teams in the league.. maybe.. so what's that? 6% of the league would take him...

    but he shouldn't be cut??.. Ryan Cook could start for more teams than that.. that should tell you something..
    If Wade = Not Good Enough to Start

    and

    Wade > Allison

    what does that tell you about Allison?

    Wade is decent but ideally he's a bumb!.. i would not be sad to see him cut...
    This is sorta what I mean when I say Vikings fans are fickle...

    Wade has led the team in receptions the past two seasons, but you want him cut?
    yeah WTF, Wade has been a clutch player all around. makes important catches, great down field blocker. He never stops, always looking to make something happen on every play. Great 3rd down guy.

    im thinking Percey will get the start. Sidney and wade come in on 3rd downs

    Ok, this is one of the most stupid, or rather more pointless arguments I've seen on here in a little while.

    Bobby Wade isn't slotted to be our starter and never was meant to be, he was forced to at times because we were thin at the position.
    There's a reason this article is "Rice & Harvin competing for starting spot".
    Last year he wasn't supposed to be a starter, that's not were he excels.
    Bobby Wade is a slot receiver, he's best suited in 3 and 4 WR's sets, where he can run short quick routes and is good at getting open.


    Would he start on most teams?
    Absolutely not - but not because he lacks in skill, but because his skills are best used in different ways.

    Leading receiver?
    If the only criteria you use to judge is number of catches.
    If you judge by yards, yard/catch and TDs, he's not.

    Leading RECEIVER is usually determined by RECEPTIONS... hence the word RECEIVER...

    Kind of dumb to do it that way though.

    Would you rather have Receiver X who had 80 receptions for 325 yards and 3 TDs or Receiver Y who had 59 receptions for 1150 yards and 16 TDs?

    It also tells you that the coach looked at Receiver X on that many more plays...

    Either way, I think the most telling stats is Drops...


    Whoever leads in Drops... cut them, not Wade.

    Re: Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin competing for the starting spot

    The dumbest thing we could do is start Bobby Wade, Wade has never been a #1 or a #2. He lacks athletic ability to consistently spererate from the top corners, he drops to many passes and just flat out lacks explosiveness. Good player though, tremendous 3 or 4, good football mind and great leadership.

    If we want to take the next step in the passing game in runs through Harvin and Rice. Harvin is gonna be a beast right away IMO, a big time impact. If Rice is healthy I think he should start as the #2, leaving Harvin as the #3 and a Punt Returner.

    It's gonna be extremely unfortunate if I look up and Wade is lined up on the outside, we need a real passing game, we need explosive targets for the QB.
