    What makes K-Rob seem so good?

    Is there something I am not seeing here? Why does everyone think that re-signing K-Rob to a top 10 receiver contract is what the Vikings need to do? Do you all really think he is a top 10 receiver? I do admit that he is a playmaker at times but does not consistently dominate at the position. I understand that he had a 1000+ yard season a couple of years ago but unless he breaks out at the WR position again, he won't get that. I just don't see him getting 80-100+ yards a game.

    Yes, i do realize that there are other topics on Krob on offseason forums but I thought this deserved another topic.

    Re: What makes K-Rob seem so good?

    I think it due to a number of factors. His past with the Seahawks, notably as you said KY Vike, that 1000+ yard season he had, and his ability to make big play all over the field; from Kick Returns, as a Wide Receiver, and taking an end-around Running play. He's also the prototypical Wide Receiver with that tall, strong frame. And the fact that he went to the Pro Bowl as a Kick Returner only helped push his stock into the stratosphere and he'll now get a decent raise for his efforts.

    K-Rob is our Daunte Hall...exactly. K-Rob is one of those explosive players...that can change a game. Hes really flurished as a kick returner...sending our once dead special teams to the Pro Bowl. Remeber seeing Howry return kickoffs and punts? It was like watching a turtle cross a intersection. K-Rob deserves the money hes making, next year exspect him to have an even bigger year in terms of being a WR.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Well aside from Travis Taylor who did very well, he was our best big play WR, the long bombs, the WR screens, the constent 30+ kick returns. He was our big play maker at WR even though our offense was very poor. No running game ect. Thats why he was drafted 9th overall, hes got major talent and looks to have his life on track. If he works hard, the sky is the limit for him.

    It will also be nice to see him get the whole year from start to finish. Training camps and all, get a chance to learn the offense from the 1st day unlike last year.

    i dont want to resign him. too much money and we have 4 others who can get the job done. and i want troy to play alot more than he did last year, so thats means a WR has to go, so it might as well be him

    Not even close, Marcus Robinson makes 2.5 mill a year and he's probably considered insconsistant and a situational player thats aging. Cut him, and give his money to Koren who is like 26.

    KRob was good with the Seahawks (except for the drops), and he made plays whenever he touched the ball with us. That being said he doesn't deserve top 10 WR money, probably not even top 20.

    Let us not forget Chris Carter and where he came from...

    ala K Rob......I'm not saying he will be an all time great like CC.....But if he truly sticks with keeping his life on the straight up and up. Who knows where he will go from what he showed us last year.

    I can say for myself, every time he got a kick off sent his way, I could feel the blood boil in my veins.

    I haven't felt that in a long time with a Vikings Kick Returner....Hey, KR kick return KR Koren Robinson......Hum, may be onto something big..

    This calls from some video! Can someone put together some clips of K-Rob on the field? He did wonders for our offense.

    K-Rob will be even better when we have a QB that can throw the deep ball again(damn glad zigy has his head on straight). DC and K-Rob will be a tandem for a while.
