    Re: Allison gone?

    We typically carry 5 WRs. My guess is that it is....

    Bernard Berrian
    Sydney Rice
    Percy Harvin
    Bobby Wade
    Jaymar Johnson

    With Jaymar, and Reynaud playing well Allison just didn't make the same improvement. Not a big surprise he was let go. Now for a surprise cut, I think Bobby Wade may be cut/traded before it's all said and done. Yep I said it...

    Re: Allison gone?

    I had a feeling that he would get cut. Just check out my post from July 08, 2009:
    http://www.purplepride.org/forums/in...?topic=52344.0

    I feel a little sad cause I remember that I though that he was a steal in the draft of 2007.
    It's also a little sad cause he made the longest run in Vikings football history.

    With Aundrae Allison out of the picture, I think the roster will look something like this:
    Bernard Berrian
    Percy Harvin
    Sidney Rice
    Bobby Wade
    Jaymar Johnson

    ...and in case Childress decides to carry six wide receivers: Darious Reynaud

    If that's the case I would start calling our WR corps. B-Twice & The Young Guns.

    Not sure if I like Harvin returning punts and kicks.
    Who does that?

    Jaymar?

    Yes. Away and Home.
    Thats OK it might be a collectors item. Lesson learned.
    So that is you they kept showing on ESPN after the announcement that Favre wouldn't be coming to the Vikes. Oh they laughed at you.

    Re: Allison gone?

    We've seen lots of guys take a whack at returns, and none of them consistently impressive.
    IF Harvin doesn't get that down, I'm all for working Reynaud or JJ in.
    Chester Taylor is still listed as the KR here:

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/teams/depth-chart/MIN

    But, they've still got Gordon and Udeze listed too.
    I think we'll likely continue to see a rotation there unless somebody really starts blowing it up.
    We'd like to think Harvin will be that guy, but we can't have him learning the job on the spot and missing balls!!
    Reynaud has more experience, decent moves, and a similar build, I'd be pretty happy with him working returns...but, that would likely point toward Wade possibly being the odd man out.
    Tough move, but we seem to have a lot of young potential there with JJ's improvements and the early drafting of PH.

    I too thought Allison could have done more for us, but he also messed up most of his opps with penalties etc.
    Flashed some potential, but never consistently and with minimal improvement...and, Childress called him, a "loose cannon," or such once, about wanting to do things his way...?
    Really, not too surprising given the overall improvement of our WR depth...and, at this point in the Summer, he'll still have a shot at making somebody else's roster.
    Good Luck AA!
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    I wonder if they will still be laughing when I double my money as he enters the Hall of Fame or maybe when he decides he is ready to go.

    Man, it's nice having some actual talent at this position. Remember when Billy fucking McMuffin was getting regular reps as a wideout? Yeah. Them were the days.
