    Re: Vikings eyeing Nate Washington

    Looks like he was targeted 78 times last year.

    Re: Vikings eyeing Nate Washington

    I like Nate Washington alot but really, I dont want to see him here.
    If we want to "improve" our WR corps, we need to get a guy with the potential to be a #1 or is a #1.
    We have a number 2 and number 3.
    We need a receiver who can do it all now, not just be a slot guy or a deep threat.
    Unless Washington wants to return kicks as well, I think we should look into the draft which is deep at WR or we go after Housh or maybe even Boldin.
    Washington has yet to prove to me he is worth that much when the biggest potential i see in him is a solid slot or a number 2.

    I think its a totally different stat. For example, if you are own a deep route, but misjudged the pass and can't catch up to it, its not a drop, but it is a pass intended that you didn't catch. What is weird is that that kinda depends on the QB, and it means Nate only saw 80 targets last year?

    I think Housh is obviously superior, but I'd rather have Nate over Harrison.

    Coles is also an interesting option (the guy has one sub 50 catch year, his rookie year).

    In the end I would maybe prefer a rookie who could do returns as well.
    He is also not on the passes not caught list. Not sure if that makes a difference.

    http://sports.iwon.com/nfl/stats/league/passesnotcaught.html
    Oh, well yes is does make a difference, maybe.

    If he caught 40 balls, and caught 51% of passes thrown his way, he would have 38 "no-catches" and that list only goes down to 40 "no-catches". I'm nto sure if my logic makes sense but I think it does.

    Anyways, I'm a bit confused, but basically he just didn't see that many passes, and was primarily used for deep routes. It could be that he has the dropsies, or that he can't get open by himself and so he didn't see many targets, or that he is fine but was underutilized with Ward and Holmes in front of him.

    I wonder what Steeler fans think of him.

    Living in Pittsburgh, I can tell you Steelers fans love all their players but just think of Washington being to the Steelers as what Wade is to us.
    Just a decent slot guy who can make a play here or a play there.
    Good games/some bad games.
    Ward and Holmes easily steel the show

    But I think this could be a legit loss for them since it seems like Sweed dropped an awful lot of passes last year.

    Thats exactly what im saying.
    But there is no way he is a number 1 or a 1a.
    Atmost he can be a number 2.
    Unless he takes some HUGE strides over the next couple years.
    I was not in any way saying he was a bad receiver.
    Stop tryin to make me look like im putting him down when im clearly not.

    Re: Vikings eyeing Nate Washington

    Seems like we already have a Nate Washington type guy in Berrian. I wouldn't be surprised to see us go after a possession guy, like we all thought Rice would be.

    Unless we are just adding more vertical threats to compliment AD. Screw the WCO.
