    Re: Training camp goals : vikings

    The Vikings made a big-time play to sign free agent Kevin Curtis last March. It didn't work. Curtis elected to go to Philadelphia and the Vikings were left to consider their other options. The Vikings ended up signing Bobby Wade (Tennessee) to a five-year, $15 million contract.
    I am still of a mind to deduct that they wanted both Wade and Curtis.
    That would have been sweet if they could have landed both.
    ;D

    Anyway, it will all work out in the wash this year.
    Young guys as well as old will come through because we have an actual WR coach back there this year that knows what the heck he is doing.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    LOL, old guys?

    I remember Chili stating he got one of the couple guys he pursued, which to me means Wade was not a plan B.

    During free agency, one other theme emerged as to the type of receiver the Vikings value for their offense. Both receivers they pursued, Wade and Kevin Curtis (who signed with Philadelphia) are smallish (under 6-feet) who run exacting routes. They are not home-run hitters, per se, but they know what to do when the ball gets into their hands.

    Bro, I know you want to be an elite "article poster"...but you gotta do better than this.

    First off, you need to "Search" using the search feature.
    I entered the keyword "goals" in the searchbox and selected "Most Recent Topics First" and had it search the Fan Forum and the Offseason Forum.

    Here is what I came up with:

    http://www.purplepride.org/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=149&action=search2

    Your new (duplicate) topic on top, another thread that contained the word "goals" and looksy here...the article that was posted on the 15th that is the same as yours.

    1.
    Just because it's Fox, does not mean they did not get it from somewhere else.
    On the top of the Fox article is states "Sports Xchange" which leads me to believe that Scout.com shares with Fox as long as Fox gives them credit and such.

    2.
    On the top of the Fox article it states "Updated 7 days ago".
    How many articles from major sources slip through the cracks here?
    Maybe 1%?

    3.
    People always say they searched.
    Hell, sometimes the thread is appropraitely titled and is 3 down from the top in the forum.
    If you are going to search, then do it.
    I am tired of always having to look after certain members who want to be the next Clark Kent or Singer.

    BTW, here's the original post:
