    Re: We need a Wr

    We need 1 "go to guy".
    A wr that will CATCH the ball on 3rd down & when the game is on the line.
    Wiggy is great but he doesnt have the speed to get down the field.
    We need 1 wr that will make a damn play when we need it.

    Want to trade - Entire Viking wr core for 1 randy moss/cris carter.

    I don't care what anyone says, we need a big player WR.....Randy Moss wouldn't have dropped the passes Williamson and Robinson dropped.

    Trade for Jerry Porter already....

    yeah thats always that answer...."get a big time WR" "we should have never traded moss :'(", well i think that alot of our problems on offense is in the line and in the penalties, yeah our WR have dropped some passes but i think they are doing better then alot of ppl expected. i think that if our line would really start to work together and dominate like they were supposed to and give BJ some time things would start to work better. so stop with the moss and big time WR crap we are prob not going to trade or get one this year so might as well learn to like what we have.
    i will go through our recievers, let me know what you think.


    TROY WILLIAMSON: 16 rec, 245 yards with a average of 15.3 ypc. he hasn't been the playmaker we have been hoping for yet this year, but he is still young and inexperienced, give him some time and i think he should do extremely well. he has some easy drops and some good catches, hasn't preformed well under pressure so far. he will continue to develop into the starting WR we have been looking for since moss left.


    TRAVIS TAYLOR: 14 rec, 199 yards with a 14.2 ypc average. has been a good pickup in my opinion, he has stepped up and made plays when he needed to, he has made some mistakes but has overall been fairly consistent. i like TT and i think he should continue to be a key part in this offense.


    MARCUS ROBINSON: 6 rec, 98 yards with an average of 16.3 per carry. was one of the few bright spots in yesterdays game on the vikes offense. has good endzone skills and uses his size to his advantage. hopefully he will see more play after yesterdays game. has the only 2 touchdown receptions this year for the vikes.


    BILLY MCMULLEN: 6 rec, 78 yards, 13 ypc. has been out to prove that it was not a mistake to trade for him. personally i liked baskett because he was young and would give us years of use. mcmullen should give us at least a few years as a back up WR. he has been doing fairly well this year, i have been pleasantly surprised with his play.



    MAURICE MANN: has not gotten a catch and hasn't gotten a chance yet. i have seen him on 1 play so far (he might have gotten more plays but i didn't see) and he was penalized for holding.


    JASON CARTER: hasn't played, i am hoping he will see playing time this year and prove to be a good WR


    MARTIN NANCE: hasn't played, don't know anything really about him if anyone knows anything fill me in.

    i won't even go into the TE's or RB's but i would grade the WR's play according to their skill level at a B
    Good post!
    The one thing that I would say about this is that the stats don't show the drops.
    It doesn't take into account playmaking ability.


    I agree, the big name WR may not be the answer.
    We really just need these guys to step it up.

    sorry i looked but i but i couldn't find any numbers as far as drops go :-\, i will try harder next time, if you got a site that includes drops in the stats let me know

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    That's the most brilliant thing I've read within the last 0.01 seconds.

    that would be nice!! i don't see us picking up or trading to get a #1 WR this year though, mabe next year, but i still think that troy williamson should develop into a #1 WR if we give him some time. he just needs to mature and learn to settle down and just CATCH THE STUPID BALL.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    If you are sick of hearing how Smoot sucks and that is all you are hearing, then you are very selective.
    We cannot hang on the fact that we have allowed less than 20 points per game.
    Letting a team march the length of the field is not what good defenses do.
    I agree there is a major problem with the offense.
    However, we will have a great game against the kitties and go into the bye week with momentum.
    We did play some good defenses in our first 4 games.

    That was my point, it is something that isn't measurable in a stat.


    Even if you could find the drop stat, it doesn't put in there drops in key situation.

    There is no stat for clutch catches when really needed.

    I am glad my brilliance has not fallen on def ears.
    but there is a very small possibility you may have been being sarcastic so please explain to me your opinion.
    Are our current WR go enough to get the job dont this year?
    Are you happy with their performance level thus far? Do you disagree with my statement that 1 great WR is worth a core of average ones??

    We ALREADY have a "go to guy"...he isn't a WR...but he gets first downs!!!
    His name is Jermaine Wiggins...and Brad Squared (both Childress and Johnson) need to GET HIM THE D-A-M-N BALL
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    I agree about wiggy 100%.
    But as I said we also need a deep threat that can also make a play.

    I hesitate to post in topics that have been discussed dozens of times.
    Here's the bottom-line in my thinking:

    1.
    Is there a non-head case #1 WR available that will make a difference?
    2.
    Assuming there is, are you going to trade the whole WR corps to acquire them?
    Last I checked you need 4-6 WRs on the roster.

    I don't buy into the superstar BS.
    You need players that can fill their roles.
    Sure, Williamson needs to get his head out of his ass, but who is available?
    Porter?
    A known headcase (unless you're making the assumption that getting benched on Oakland has helped him mature).
    I would rather see a star rise from the ashes.
    The superhero theory is weak.
    The offense has problems that are deeper than signing some prima Donna.
