    This is a good article, in that most important info is presented; i.e. what are the skills sets and experiences of these two players.
    Obviously, Shiancoe is a potential starter, while Ciurciu and Wade are backups, unless the Vikings use a slot receiver often in 2007.

    The following quote hints at why rebuilding a team takes a few years...

    " ..... Obviously I had some experience with him in the last three years and then this happened to be a contract year for him."

    Childress, on the reason for signing Shiancoe

    The players that a coach wants on his roster are not always immediately available because the average length of a contract is 3-4 years.
    So, a few years will pass
    before a coach can add all the (role) players he wants ( without taking the more expensive route of trading ) when their contracts expire.
    Trades are used less often during rebuilding because a team has to give up 'equal value' to acquire a player to fill an area of need.
    That usually means a surplus of player value exists in another position, e.g. RB, which rarely occurs during rebuilding.
    i don't seiously think coaches are waiting for specific players to come free, I believe in this case, BC went for a guy he knew something about, who has some skills that could help in the offense and who was cheap enough to take a chance on. I wouldn't read too much into that.
    well how much credence can we give this anyway.
    whats he gonna say.
    the guys we signed stink and aren't gonna contribute.
    hes gotta pump them up so we dont look at the deals and think they dont know what there doing.
    maybe everything he says will be true, but there's not a whole lot to judge from when it comes to being on the field.

    I still can't get over the fact that they let Marcus Robinson go.
    I think the idea is Wade will replace him, but unless we get a big 1st year impact wide receiver in the draft... *cough CJ cough* (which most likely won't happen, and even if it did, it would cost to much.) we are going to be weaker at WR this year than last.
    That is scary.
    Is that even possible?
    Be weaker at WR than last year?
    I doubt it.
    Nowhere to go but up.
    I dont know... I'd like to think it's not possible but where do we sit now compared to last years WR roster?

    It'a all heresay now.
    We don't even know who the staring QB is going to be.
    The trade deadline hasn't passed, the draft hasn't happened, the 53-man roster deadline hasn't passed.
    There are so many unknowns right now that I find it difficult to get very worried about anything regarding the team.

    Well Prophet, you do speak some truths. How about hyopthetically? Given what players have come and gone so far, are you worried? If the season started today how do you think we would do?

    Good point.
    I guess I'll just sit back, relax, and let the brain trust power of authority work out the kinks.

    man last years wr's were bad and for some reason we released todd pinkston hes not good but he's not bad. I think as for Quaterback i dont think Jackson can play the whole season so i think we should try and sign Joey Harrington(always a big fan) i don't know but we need a backup other than Bollinger
