    Vikings: Which Milestone Is Most Likely to Happen in 2009?

    [size=13pt]Minnesota Vikings: Which Milestone Is Most Likely to Happen in 2009?[/size]

    by Andy Rarick (Analyst)


    The Minnesota Vikings have some pretty huge expectations this season, regardless if Favre signs or not.
    The question is, how far can they make it?

    in order of likelyness:

    Berrian tops 1000
    Henderson makes the pro bowl
    Allen tops 20 sacks
    Peterson tops 2100 yards
    Griffin makes the pro bowl

    Thats about where I'm at.
    Altho Berrian &
    Henderson are a toss up for #1.

    Berrian was so close last season with a less skilled Jackson, this season, with another year under Jacksons belt, I'm sure he can reach 1000.
    Henderson pulls a very real chance of getting snubbed.

    Hmmm ... then he should be even better if we put Gus Frerotte back under center! Afterall he had 257 (an average of 51.4/game) yards with T-Jack last season and 707 with Gus (64.3).
    Basically ... he just needs someone who can get him the ball downfield.
    My guess is that Berrian would put up better numbers with Sage than T-Jack since Sage seems to be able to go downfield better ... of course, T-Jack might be ready to take that next step. And if he develops the ability to go downfield (something he has never shown to be able to do really) then Berrian could be ready for a MONSTER season.

    99 yard bomv says anything?
    1 play changes the statistics instantly.. so i don't see the resemblance between Frerotte and Rosenfels
    Rosie O'Donnell is a dude!

    actually, I don't think so.
    I looked it up before, and the difference wasn't as much as you might think, gus just threw better balls.
