    Who showed the most promise for the Vikings besides AP?

    What is your opinion of who showed the most promise considering
    everything, Greenway in his first season playing,2nd round pick Rice playing limited but the Tds he caught and the 60 yrd pass., Allisons 104 yard TD return, Robisons rookie season like veteran presence...a mean dog from a fourth rounder, 3rd round pick McCauley did nice at CB I feel pretty good about. We all know about Petersons First trip into Canton already with 296yards. So we have talent level. just need to use it properly.
    I am THE #1 Sidney Rice #18 Fan ever! Don't Be surprised when this kid IS a superstar! He is humble, smart, tough, talented and has alot of character! Takes alot of pride in his work, team, fans and life. Watch out for this kid! I think he is awesome! Everytime he touches the ball its MAGIC!

    i voted for greenway because he stepped in and showed why we drafted him there..i thought he made by far the biggest impact on this team of anybody on that list..sidney rice showed that he will be a nice player, and that he will make some plays for us next season, but overall, it was greenway who showed everyone that hes keeping that spot at LB for years to come

    Re: Who showed the most promise for the Vikings besides AP?

    Most "promise"?

    Rice.

    Greenway already has shown us what he can do this year, he's met his expectation for the year. So if we're talking "promise", then he doesn't really fit here.

    Robison has played well, with him and Edwards (Salt & Pepper) we'll hopefully have a powerful 1-2 punch in the future, but he needs to continue to work on his run stopping before i coin him in

    Rice has really stepped up throughout the course of the year.
    He doesn't have many TD catches, but I think if he had been on a team with a more pass friendly offense and a solid QB all year long, he could be fighting for the Offensive Rookie of the Year spot.
    Those TD catches that he has made have been spectacular, over the defenders heads.

    Easy vote...Rice, hands down.
    I like the others, however, I think Rice is gonna be a really good one.
    As Mike Mayock pointed out, "Rice has the best ball skills of the rookie receivers."
    You could make an argument that Dwayne Bowe from KC is up there, but, Rice ran all of the routes, made some amazing catches, and has a great attitude/work ethic.

    Greenway, Robison, McCauley, all great guys to have on your team too.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    Re: Who showed the most promise for the Vikings besides AP?

    rice just doesnt have the speed or strength to be a superstar receiver..he will be a big time playmaker for us, especially when we eventually bring in a star receiver and qb, but i wouldnt expect to see him playing at an all pro level at any point, but like i said, a real nice player that will certainly have a huge impact after we bring in a bonafide star receiver for him to play next to and a good quarterback to throw the ball to him..im still going with greenway

    Rice will grow and get stronger. He's 21. He will be a great receiver if he gets on a team that has a passing game.
    I also like Gordon.
    Greenway plays well but doesn't tackle well at times.
    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"

    I voted for Rice but in my mind it was "none of the above." The guy who showed the most "promise" to me is Otis Grigsby.
    He's a guy that come in with absolutely no expectations. We laughed at the Vikes bringing him in because he has been doomed to practice squads. Yet he has done a great job filling in where he is needed. He will stay on the Vikings team.

    greenway will get stronger, and learn the game more as well
