    They will both fail without Childress coaching them.

    They may be alright. Remember Bevell worked under Childress for 5 years!

    Thing is, and I've said this for awhile now, I'm not convinced that the loss is that hard to replace.

    Rice had ONE great season. ONE. He didn't replicate, and aside from a handful of great catches, he didn't even LOOK LIKE he could have replicated. His numbers simply weren't there in his return.

    Can we replace him with someone on the roster right now? No.

    But I don't think we can afford to spend what he wants to keep him...I think we'd be over paying...just like with Edwards.

    I agree. I really like Rice. I think his size and hands are exceptional and I think he could be great. But he has less than 900 yards combined in the three seasons outside of his Pro Bowl year.

    He has shown a knack to constantly get hurt. And, last season, when the world was waiting for him to come back and set the NFL on fire, he simply did not produce at a high level.

    I want him back, but I simply do not want to way overpay for him. I would be almost just as happy for a Braylon Edwards or Lance Moore for considerably less money.

    If you believe Edwards reaped the benefits of having JA on the opposite end, then you should also believe that Robison did & will as well.

    I agree with that. Robison will benefit from having JA on the opposite corner and just like Edwards, if he had decided to go test the waters he would not be as successful unless he went to a team with an equally talented RDE.

    IMO, they fucked up big time.
    There is a certain yutz on here who has been chanting that since the start of last season. Truth is, he has been almost screaming it since the season ended.

    Guess what, he is now concerned about the guys that should be extended (AD) now.

    What a yutz huh. But hey, we have Bryzcheapski. Isn't he like some sort of CAP guru who has us over the CAP instead of looking good right now?

    Losing Sidney Rice Might Not Be The Worst Thing Ever

    http://www.dailynorseman.com/2011/7/24/2291674/losing-sidney-rice-might-not-be-the-worst-thing-ever
    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.
    I know most don't understand, but even though Rice and Berrian have WR after their names, they play two different positions on the field.

    JJ can replace BB. Arcenaeaux could replace Sid, Cam is more of a PH kindof guy.

    In short, if we loose Rice, we don't have much on the roster other than his backup there to take his place.

    (on a side note, I love that ARceneaux kid) Can't wait to see him on the field.

    Lance Moore? 5'10ish. 160 or so? Are we replacing Harvin or something?

    I'll give you Braylon. 6'3" 220 or so. A couple of others (minus Plax and Jackson) that I would like if we couldn't get Rice back.....(in priority order)

    Floyd (Chargers)RFA
    Nanee (Chargers) RFA
    Mike Williams (Seachickens)RFA
    Sims Walker (Jags)RFA

    Considering the RFA and their production, I hope they get a deal done with Rice.

    No one believes that Rob is anything other than a "Situational" pass rusher on here right?

    He just can't stand up to the riggors that a LDE stands up to in our base defense.

    Is he great coming in after the LDE takes all the pounding against the run and get after the QB? Yes, not bad but he isn't going to be the starter at LDE.

    That will fall to Griff or Ballard. One of those two will eventually be our LDE unless someone else is brought in.

Our new offense is supposed to run alot of 2 TE formations, ran through AD, with more play action then past years. Moss imo would be better suited for that role. Just a thought....
    Randy has the size, but he doesn't have the "Want To" when it comes to playing the position.

    Maybe he would be an option to replace Berrian, however, you will only be back in the same position you were in last year when we had Moss and no Rice to take the pressure off the outside guy.

    Again, I know its hard to comprehend, but we are talking two different positions here. One cannot replace/play for the other. It just doesn't work that way. The last two years have been evidence of that.
