    all that says to me is the vikes org made all the right moves in the off season.
    Well almost, the forgot to pick up a good WR.
    Didn't need one.
    They've already got 3 in Taylor, Robinson and Williamson.

    And they *thought* they had a 4th in Koren Robinson, until he fell off the wagon and into the seat of his car.

    =Z=
    I said "good", and taylor doesn't count as he is an RB.
    Travis Taylor, who led the Vikings WRs in receiving last year, sure as heck does count as a wide receiver.

    And I'm perfectly satisfied with our receiving corps.
    Outside of TWill's dropsies in Week 1, I think they've done everything they've been asked to do by Childress.

    =Z=
    yeah, my bad on T. Taylor, thought you ment C.Taylor (as he's a good receivng back)

    But anywho,
    Player No Yds Avg Long TD
    Travis Taylor 50 604 12.1 31 4

    Those are not great figures for the #1 reciever.
    And actually, wiggins lead the team with 69.

    Our WR's were average at best last year & we made no improvement in the offseason.
    I hope they step up, but I said the same thing last year & the never did.
    T-will is the only talented one in the group & he has a long way to go.
    T-Will is the only talented receiver in the group?
    He is mostly potential right now and he should develop fine, but I wouldn't say he's the only talented WR.
    There are teams with bigger names but T. Taylor is the man, he can be counted on.
    I'm still not sold on McMuffin, but he appears to be doing fine with some key catches.
    M. Johnson is servicable. I like Jimmy K. and Wiggens, sure, they're TEs, but they can get the job done.
    C. Taylor is awesome out of the backfield.
    Richardson does his job.
    The other WRs/TE/RBs can also perform just fine in the UMCO.
    There is no need for the likes of T-Ho, Porter, Meshawn (although he may have graduated from the head-case WR class), Porter, etc.
    The Vikes are fine at WR once T-Will becomes consistent, he is definitely not the only talented receiver.
    Fantasy football and real football are mutually exclusive of each other.

    1st:We'll have to agree to disagree about the talent of our wr's.
    On the other hand, I agree our TE's are very talented & C. Taylor is a fine addition to the passing game.

    2nd:I can't say I've ever played fantasy football but I think I follow what your getting at.
    I wanted to see if you there is any strong connection between "#1WR's" and
    "W's".
    So I went to nfl.com & looked at 2005 playoff teams.

    ;D, that was hilarious.
    Sure, it will be nice when T-Will performs consistently as the #1.
    Until then we have the personnel to buy some time, it's not a panic situation as long as the D and special teams also continue to do their job.
