      Our WR's are getting the best, and they should be a big surprise this year. Stewart will hone these guys into a strength on this team.

    Oh! When you were saying you thought Stewart was going to make a difference this year, I thought you were talking about NASCAR.

    Re: Vikings Spotlight: George Stewart - Mining purple's potential

    The Vikings might be Stewart's toughest challenge to date.

    His most proven veteran's best season yielded 42 catches for 481 yards, and his pool of talent includes a high-jumping basketball player, a top 10 pick with eye issues and a raw second-round draft pick who doesn't turn 21 until next month.

    "He's the perfect guy for the job in Minnesota," Falcons receiver Michael Jenkins said, "and they'll become great receivers if they listen to him."
    I was looking at his bio on the official Viking site the other day, and I saw the ATL gig listed on his resume.
    I was thinking that the other gigs looked impressive until I saw the ATL gig listed.
    Those ATL WRs did nothing really.
    Point being, that the WRs that he coaches have to have talent to cultivate in order for them to be successful.
    Also, I like the quote from the ATL coach that says they will be good "if the listen to him (Stewart)."

    So what you are saying is that the Atlanta receivers DIDN'T listen to him?
    There's no doubt we need help with the learning curve of our young receivers. I hope to heck he's the answer.

    Me too, we need to instill confidence in our guys like the confidence that Owens got from Stewart.

    As far as the "listening" comment, I was implying that from what the ATL coach said.
    He made it sound like his group of WRs didn't listen to Stewart.
    I didn't point out that it may have been Vick in ATL that was part of the problem, but that is another topic.

    I know this is only preseason, but I really dislike the Rams.

    Re: Vikings Spotlight: George Stewart - Mining purple's potential

    Now THAT was a well written article.
    Stewart sounds like a quality coach, and a quality person.
    He's the kind of guy that Wilf, and the Organization, would be well served to keep and give some public exposure...I hope this article is the first of many.
    There appears to be no doubt that he will make an impact, hopefully it is sooner rather than later.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent
