    Yes I am including this year when he's not on the team. That's the whole point behind the "What's Missing" article. Since we traded him away, the Vikings have been 1-4. Last year they were 5-3 with him & 5-3 after he was injured.

    According to many fans, were supposed to be a better team without him & with Jennings instead.

    Thing is, Jennings isn't the type of receiver you throw to at the LOS & let his legs do the rest. Where Jennings is successful is outside Ponder's comfort zone.

    I'm hoping Freeman to Jennings will become a much better combo.

    Well then maybe you had better include the numbers he has put up in Seattle since he was traded so we can see for sure what type of impact he has made so far with them.

    You can make the same case that we are 1-4 since we let Jenkins walk.

    Or if the Vikings end up with another 3-13 season or worse that firing Childress was a mistake (lol) or probably more accurate case would be Frazier was a bigger mistake

    I think the second part is obvious already. Fortunately for frazier there are still lots of fans who believe they can bring in another average QB and somehow in the face of all the other failures of the staff, that somehow he is going to turn things around.

    Harvin was a whiner and a divisive element in the locker room, plus he is injury prone and migrane prone (the migranes seemed to coincide with the whining). I'm tired of prima donna receivers and glad he's gone. I can't think of any winning team that declared that one wide receiver was the reason it won. The Vikings obviously have way more issues to address besides the departure of one flash-in-the-pan receiver. It wasn't like he was the second coming of Rice or Moss and he hasn't exactly dispelled that notion while in Seattle.
