    Vikings have ingredients for explosive offense

    [size=13pt]Minnesota Vikings have ingredients for explosive offense[/size]

    Pending the impact of rookie Percy Harvin and the chemistry between the quarterback and the receivers, this Vikings team has the ingredients to be an explosive offense.

    Re: Vikings have ingredients for explosive offense

    I will say, TJ adds to the potential for an explosive offense much more than Sage.

    The rest of the article is pretty obvious. Berrian and Shank and probowl in the same sentence though? That's a stretch.

    Might have the ingredients but depends how they get mixed together. give to the right chef and you'll get a 5 course gastronomic meal... unfortunately we have the equivalent of Homer Simpson

    hmmmmm doughnuts....

    You should compare Shank's numbers with the TE's that made the prowbowl last year...

    3rd in TD's, and not even close in any other category.

    42 receptions isn't enough to be a reliable, constant target, which seems to be what they look for in pro bowl TE's.
    I'd rather have a guy who can keep moving the chains, than get a few receptions, and 7 wide open TD's.
    Not discrediting him, he does well for us, but he needs a QB to get him the ball more, he needs to continue improving, and then maybe we'll talk about pro bowl.
    As of right now?
    No way.

    which is why Shank certainly won't be going.
    Tony will be a lock for the next 3-4 years, whether his skill warrants it or not, as well as Gates.
    Witten will probably also be in, based on the fact he's been productive for a long time, and is a cowboy.
    The pro bowl is a joke, and will continue to be a joke until they take away the fans vote.(which will never happen)

    The discussion makes more sense if it's related to the HOF and the arguments become much more clear cut.

    yes, at least the HOF uses strict guidelines and requirements to always ensure all of the best players get in fairly.
