    Vikings' offense: Five questions

    [size=13pt]Vikings' offense: Five questions[/size]

    The Vikings appear to have upgraded their offense, but whether the team's biggest weakness last season can muster an effective attack is uncertain.

    The Vikings' full squad reports to Mankato on Friday for the start of training camp, and there are plenty of questions to answer in coach Brad Childress' second season. Here are five questions the offense faces as it rolls into the Minnesota State Mankato campus:

    Of the 11 receivers on the roster, only two are under 6 feet, and only three have more than three years of NFL experience.
    this is very key i think.. all are tall enouf, all are fairly young, and to be in this spot in the NFL (even pre-season) all have to have some talent.

    now.. lets see if the magic worker can mold them into a consistant ball catching crew that will benefit from the CT/AD mix..

    The whole offense will benefit from CT, and AP, being in the backfield. Also having Shiancoe to get down the seam, will force a safety to cover him leaving man coverage some where. Having a strong rushing game will open the pass, and though young, we have some talent at the wide-out. This is Troy's year to bust out, Wade will be a consitent possession guy. And competition will sort the rest out. I have a good feeling about our offense this year. Can't waite to see how they come together.

    5. CAN GEORGE STEWART BE THE YODA TO A BUNCH OF PROMISING JEDI?

    There's no shortage of athleticism in the Vikings' receiving corps, with fleet-footed players such as Troy Williamson and Todd Lowber. But there's a shortage of credibility in this unit. Williamson, the No. 7 pick in the 2005 draft, has disappointed thus far, and Lowber is in the infancy of his football career. Sidney Rice, this year's second-round pick, is intriguing, with his height (6 foot 3) and leaping ability, but he needs polishing. That's why the Vikings were elated to replace Darrell Wyatt with the far more experienced Stewart, who has a history of developing raw players, most notably Terrell Owens. He has plenty to work with: Of the 11 receivers on the roster, only two are under 6 feet, and only three have more than three years of NFL experience.
    I for one am glad they shitcanned Wyatt and got a real coach.
    ;D

    Yeah the right side looks weaker and I hope they get rid of the zone-blocking scheme. The Vikes have alot of youth in reciever corp, get them all familar with each other.
