    Re: Vikings place hopes in hands of rookie wideout Rice

    We should have high hopes for Rice, he has good speed, height, excellent body control, and will be the second coming of Cris Carter with a little seasoning. Remember he just turned 21. He will be entrenched as our 3rd reciever, and a weapon in the red zone.
    Plus, he can actually catch the ball.
    Speed, height, body control, none of those matter if you cannot catch the ball when it is thrown to you.

    The reason why Carter and J.Rice were special, was the fact that they were going to work harder than anyone else.
    Also, you are talking about 2 very competitive guys.
    Those things are difficult to meassure in such a young player like S.Rice.

    S.Rice does have the physical attributes, but will he have the psychological attributes.

    This is where the fun lies in cheering for a team and its players.


    HOPE!
