    Again..he caught

    Is this the talent of which you speak of...
    He has speed but he is not an amazing talent. 2 of the td catches on that play were simply blown underneath coverages...nothing more nothing less ( play designed) where he caught an open pass. The other was a pass where he tourched the Lions secondary......congrats.
    The play action play on the double move was nice. WHich makes my point. He is an average WR he shines so much more because everyone else we had looked like shit.

    BTW at the 1:00 mark.. I love the pass from Ponder. Almost turned a sure TD into a incomplete or stuff.

    The whole receiving core will look better when Ponder stops throwing the ball and MBT starts throwing the ball.

    Read on here where Simpson did more for the team as a downfield blocker then he did as a pass-catcher. Completely accurate. Ponder is the guy. The FO is stickin with him, and he does best getting the ball to the tight ends and droppin in a screen. Jennings adds route running and more dependable hands then Simpson. I can't stand Simpson, but that's just me. My two cents: AP, Rudolph, and Jennings, along with Blair...Those are the go-to guys. Would have preferred AP, Amendola, Rudolph, and Blair. Again, just a feelin a got
    Tuco the world.....

    Vikings Re-Sign Jerome Simpson

    I saw some potential in Simpson at Cincy and sometimes players need a full year in a new system to get things down. I am going to wait and see how he starts out this year because it is possible that he will be a totally different player with a year under his belt.

    Or he just might not be a good fit. Time will tell. If he does come around we will have the roster filled out on offense. We have more issues on defense.

    Hopefully Simpson is fixing his hands this off season.

    That begs the question, is Ponder even a mediocre QB?
