    I think our WR core is pretty set. no1 real STAR, but several good players.

    BB and Rice will make a great outside set,

    Wade i hope will step it up a bit in the inside routs. and with AA and Ferg mixing in here and there we should have something we haven't had recently..
    secure hands catching the ball.

    the big question for me is. have they gotten their timing down with Tjack. as many people wanna say our qb is the big ?.. i think we should also look at the route's and timing of the WR's and i believe that with the experience of last year, and the work they are doing now should pay big dividends this season.

    Berrian and Rice should start on the wings.

    Similar case to TJack´s ,make your job done,make the other team stays honest to our pass creating spaces for PJ and CT,make that short routes passes complete .

    And I shouldn´t forget ,graduate your sight before the season begins... ;D

    Instead of having a true go-to receiver, the team has taken the “wide receiver-by-committee” approach, with mixed results at best
    The Vikings have yet to fully recover from the loss the Moss and the level of production and fear he brought to the offense.
    I'll be so happy when sports writers and fans figure out that we aren't still trying to replace Moss.
    Hell, for that matter, we aren't trying to get a "True Number 1 Reciever" at all and are looking to solidify a WR Corp that is a reciever by committe concept.

    I know its hard to comprehend for those that loved to see Moss deep every throw, but those days are gone and will never return under this staffs offensive scheme.

    Ball control, dink and dunk with a occasional deep ball to stretch the defense/keep them honest approach to the passing game is what we will see for many years to come.

    amen to that. The idea of only having a true #1 receiver works against you and makes it easier to defend. Personally I'd rather have three good receivers rather than one oustanding and some scrubs to make up numbers.

    In Berrian, they have a big-play deep threat. In Rice, they have a playmaker that is dangerous in the red zone. In Wade, they have a dependable receiver who is willing to go over the middle and play the slot and move the chains.
    ive been saying this since we got BB, and yet people still complain about BB not being a number one ???

    I don't want a great offense.
    We had that in the past.

    Give me Tampa Bay or a Baltimore offense than can win in January and Feburary.

    Re: Vikings Positional Analysis: Wide Receiver

    Our WRs and QB have been taking hit after hit this offseason, but I think at the wideout positions we are in pretty good shape.I really like Berrian and think he will help stretch the field a lot and will be a great compliment to Bobby Wade. I also think that Rice is really gonna blossom this season. If Allison, Johnson or Fregie provide a solid No. 4 and No. 5 option, our receiving corps will surprise some people this season.
