    Re: Sidney Rice Might Not Be Long For The Vikings

    How can a team that signed McKinnie to a huge deal before he reached FA, not locked up Rice before he reached FA?

    If he winds up elsewhere, we'll be hurting big time at WR.

    IMO, they fucked up big time.

    The pain of being a vikings fan, they always right there, but never getting over the hump... thats worse than having a poor team 10 years straight..

    Pay the man.

    I would agree if not for the injuries. Just a shame his career has been riddled with them.

    We would not be feeling the squeeze of letting him go had Berrian not become a waste of space and money.

    Rice, on the other hand, may have peaked already.
    I'd say 90% of the receivers in the nfl would love to peak at the skill level that Rice showed in 09.

    Hey Christopher!

    What you failed to look at was the void that would be left if we lose Rice.

    Would we fill that void with Berrian? He has only caught 12 TDs as a Viking & his stats of the past two seasons combined don't even add up to his 2008 stats.

    And while you scoff at Rice's 18 TD's of his past four seasons here, other than Harvin & Berrian, how do our other remaining WR's talents/stats stack up to Rice's;

    Arceneaux, Emmanuel
    Brown, Freddie
    Burton, Stephen
    Camarillo, Greg
    Iglesias, Juaquin
    Johnson, Jaymar

    Unless our WR corp is bolstered by adding a revitalized Moss to the roster, I don't see a successful WR tandem amongst any two of those names.

    What, Greg Camarillo and Juaquin Iglesias don't make you moist in the loins?
