    Why such a lack of respect

    I have seen a lot of posts on here about how Daunte and Nate cannot get it done without Moss and I don't think it is very fair.
    Both players looked quite capable while Moss was out for 5 1/2 games (which the team was 3-3 in). Daunte still had a passer rating of 98.9 in those games and that is including the god awful Giants game, which even with Moss would have been damn near identical because we always let the Giants do that to us. Sure his overall averages were down a little, but with his stats in those games he would have still averaged a 29 TD with 9 INT year with 3,800 yards, definitely pro bowl numbers.
    Burleson was also effective with 300 yards recieving and three TDs in those games. He is no Moss, but is definitely capable of growing into a premier receiver in this league. I just don't see why so many of us Purple bleeders seem to think this offense will sputter without Moss. Sure it will be different, but it can still get the job done ... a solid kicker would be a nice addition for sure though.

    Why such a lack of respect

    I dont think the Offense will lose a step Robinson is a very good wideout Burleson has a huge upside. To me it seemed the Culpepper started to throw to him a lot more in the 4th quarters of games. Although I do think we need to add some people to our WR core. We dont have to use any of our first round picks on wideouts. There will be Parrish from Miami and some of the Sooners wideout still there later in the draft.

    I think the biggest problem might be the new OC and TICE. They need to get their poop in a group or we could be in trouble. No more f'n up on the sideline throwing the red flag and stop calling trick plays in serious games. Let's go out and punch teams in the mouth from the git-go.

    Didnt we almost come from behind to beat indy last year without Moss. I think we still have one of the best offenses without Moss we resigned Wiggins. I am for stocking up the defensive side of the ball we got Burleson outside of the 1st round. There will be Talent there in the draft.

    I think we could definitely use a WR in the first round, but we can grab one of those second tier guys ( Williamson, Clayton and the guy whose name I can't remember) at No. 18.

    Williamson and Roddy White would be nice picks. I would pick them if Pollack or Davis arent there at 18.

    Thanks, I keep forgetting White's name even though he could be a steal type of receiver. Kiper loves all five of these guys and thinks they are all bonified NFL WR's. He thinks it is a pretty deep position in the draft, so no reason to be gun-happy at seven if we can get DJ or maybe a new Cadillac ... but I do admit Mike Williams would look good in Purple and Gold.
