    For some reason I keep on defending Troy. Maybe cause you know, he's only been in the league for 2 years. He knows next season is his judgement year, let's see how it goes.
    Probably because you are looking at it logically and objectively. ;D

    Honestly I agree with you.
    He rookie season saw pretty much no development under Tice's watch.
    Then he is instantly promoted from bench warming rookie to #1 WR?

    Holy pooh, talk about pressure!

    This is his make or break year.
    He knows, it, we know it, and the coaching staff knows it.
    If he can sit the year in the slot, his number of dropped balls will go way down IMHO.

    Right on NodakPaul.

    What's to lose anyways? I have a feeling Troy will work extra extra EXTRA hard this offseason. He better.
    Because I'm a Vikings fan, they are that much sexier.

    I'm with you two. I still give him this year to improve.

    I'll just keep it a little quiet this season, because I defended him last season, and look where that brought me. lol

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    It's not like Troy Boy hasn't played football prior to coming to the Vikes. If he can't catch the ball after high school. college, and 2 years in the NFL....... What makes you think a "switch" is going to turn on and his hands will magically reform into a ball holding machine???

    Can't use him to kick returns........ gotta catch a ball to do that.

    Can't use him as a WR..... gotta catch a ball to do that.

    Perhaps use him exclusively for reverses?? A skinny running back?? lol


    In all seriousness, turn him loose in the backfield. Shades of Deon in reverse.

    We just need to get him coached up by Marques Colston's position coach in college...the drills that he put Colston through are what made Colston a STEAL last season!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    I agree...the Vikes should be VERY active in FA...especially on offense!

    Even if they get a bit of a bump, the Vikings are still $20+ million behind several teams in FA.
    I don't think they'll have the ability to be VERY active, as you want.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Well catching is an art and perhaps the way he's been taught his entire career has been wrong. I don't really know.

    And I know Tiki Barber played RB but what the heck..the guy was in his...6-7th season and he was still fumbling. Coughlin set him straight by teaching him how to hold the ball in adjust to the style he runs. So I guess it's very possible that new coachings can help a lot.
