    BTW in that time he missed only 3 more games than Bowe.
    That's sorta the point... time has a way of wearing down on the body.

    3 years ago, Thomas Jones had 1,400 yards and was 3rd in the league in rushing... using your logic, we should sign him based on what he did 3 years ago?

    It's obvious that Jennings' body is just breaking down and he's not the elite receiver he once was.

    He's missed over 1/3 of his games over the past two seasons. What have you done for me lately?

    Explain to me how an MCL injury (very common football injury) and a Groin injury (very common injury) means your body is breaking down?

    Maybe you missed week 17 vs. us but he had 8 catches for 120 yards and two tds. If that is broken down... sign me up.

    He then shited on us the next weekn with 4 catches for 60 yards and then 6 for 54 and a td. We could use that kind of breaking down on this team.

    Is Jordy Nelson breaking down too? Cause he has missed 4 games this season with pulled hammies. According to your logic Percy is broken because he has missed 3, 4 and 8 games in 3 consecutive years.

    Breaking down tends to have injuries that are related. Bad hammies... leading to an Achilles or calf injury. MCl leading or a PCL or ACL injury. Re injuring the same site, What I saw vs. us was a player that looked the part of a baller.

    Just how much time on the field do you think Carlson has seen?

    Vikings interested in Donald Driver

    DWTS has a way of braking the body down. I think it would be wise to pass on him.

    Its because he has a name someone recognized.

    I'm still convinced we will go after someone in FA but it will be someone coming off his first contract, that is on a team were he doesn't get many reps because of the guys in front of him, and the team will have to resign at least one or two of those flash cats.

    The one I'm the most interested in is Ramses Barden. With the stuff going on with respect to Hixon, Cruz and Nicks, Barden will surely slip through the cracks.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
