    Re: Vikings Outlook for 2005

    I still think we are a year away from Williamson being where he needs to be and from the defense gelling, I got us losing in the NFC Championship to the Atlanta Falcons ... but I definitely hope that I am wrong ...

    the LB corps should be better with the addition of Cowart, and E.J getting his playing time, Napoleon should have a decent season, maybe not pro-bowl, James-Pat Williams-Kevin Williams-Udeze.. thats one good sounding line, secondary will have 3 pro-bowl starters, Winfield,Smoot,Sharper,the three amigos, and the offense will do fine with the loss of Randy, Taylors has the catching ability as Moss, but early in Taylors career he never had anyone that could get him the ball like Culpepper will, Williamson will obviously bring the speed, I think he'll draw double team with his speed and catch ability, which Burleson might draw double also, considering his going to be the #1 receiver, and that will open up the run game for Bennett, and if Bennett can hit the hole and get his speed back that will equal another pro-bowl season for Bennett, thats my outlook for 05'
    [size=13px]Looks like we have quite a few options, but until I see it in game action 6-7 man coverages might be enough to stiffle our younger WR corp. If Robinson can step up to the plate and lead by example, staying healthy and being our best or at least most capable red zone target! DC's not gonna forget so easily some of the strikes he made to Robinson in his biggest game last season against the Texans! It was good enough to hold a lead even if the game went into overtime! Robinson could be very key to the Vikings not missing a beat with the loss of Moss in 2004! Taylor is an unknown but could turn into a very big surprise if he can establish a repor with Culpepper to be another alternative short to mid range reciepient! If Taylor along with first round draft pick Williamson, can be succesfull options out of the slot in 3 and 4 WR sets than this offense could explode with a wider range of calls out of the option calls that Culpepper has mastered going into his 6th season at the helm of the Vikings offense. His 98 TD's, 16 rushing, are 2nd in the league to only Peyton Manning's 107 over the last 3 NFL seasons! Interestingly enough Donovan McNabbs 76 TDs are 13 short of Bret Favre's 89 TDs over that same period!(Got, don't you hate any little praise a Packer actually might deserve?) I think Pepp is gonna be just fine in leading this team completely to the next level! Time to step up "PLAYERS!"[/size]

    Re: Vikings Outlook for 2005

    if bennet can stay healthy we will have an excellent year. ill tell you why.

    bennet is just about as fast as they come. once he gets to the outside he's gone. he wasn't able to do that last year because our best blocking back was injured (kleinsasser) wit jimmy back he should be able to get to the outside and get big gains and if Birk gets back early it will be even better as birk can pull and block extremely well. if both jimmy, bennet and Birk are helathy this season, bennet should have a 1100+ season.

    i believe bennett will stay healthy this year, if he doesn't he is done in the NFL--no one will take him.

    i also think burleson will be solid at #1. he will have some games that he will do almost nothing though. top #1's always give the team something--at least a 2 yard TD catch, even if they don't catch another ball in the game. I don't think Burleson is at that point yet where it is a given that he will contribute every game with something wonderful.

    Our running game should be improved with Kleinsasser and Rosenthal back but we also need to stick with it and not get pass happy if it is slow at first. How Burleson performs with defenses now focusing on him and game plan for him has yet to be seen. We need some WR to step up and take heat off of him (yes, that means you Coo-Coo Ca-Choo Robinson). LB still is our area of concern and we need the players that we have to react instinctively and not think on the field.

    That being said I see us as a 10-6 or 11-5 team that has a chance to do some damage in the playoffs.

    Yah it is kinda funny how the media changes thier perspective after we got rid of him.. I don't understand that at all!
    Yeah it's wierd. I always thought people were anti-Viking because of Moss, not anti-Moss because of the Vikes. Strange...

    Re: Vikings Outlook for 2005

    I for one have to agree with bennet as the starter our running game is a big big question mark. Bennett has not had the ability to hit the right hoel constintly. He realy isnt a running back that gives coonsient possitve yards. The reason his number dont reflect that is he dose have the aboility to break a long run. He has not shown he can break tackles very well. I have feeling Memo will be the starter by the end of the year.

    Passign game we we will have to many peopel that can catch the ball. You cnat cover every one when u factor in Jimmy K and wiggins and Memo or mo if he starts. Not to sure on bennets hands.

    With Moss gone we have many more weapons as Pep can pass to who eever is open and not get flak for any one reciever not gettign the ball enuff.


    On papper yes i see the vikings need to pick a number one reciever. Realsticly i see the ball being spread around so much we will not have a true number 1 reciever.

    Well back the hole i dispeared into err i shoudl ssay everquest lol
