Even so, it could be a positive. Defenses jammed men in the box and shut down our run because we didn't have even a sliver of a passing game. If Rice can get downfield and catch some deepballs, even just a few times, it will go a long way toward keeping men out of the box.
"Kenny Phillips has the body of Sean Taylor and the speed and knowledge of Ed Reed"
being around nfl talent and a relatively competent coaching staff is going to increase their production
i have faith that they will put in the work necessary to do this
but we can only hope so cant we?
Well living near MN I'll have to be watching them alot...AD should help that. I would just like to point out...that Rice isn't the speedster the fun a fly route...but he had the best 10 yard split time at the combine...which will really put him at his best on the intermidate routes. Posts/In/Outs will be where he is at his best...something that really hasn't been in MN since the early 90s.
Uhm does the name ChrisCarter mean anything to you? Hasnt been in minnesota since the early 90's? Jake Reed? I believe those guys played the majorty of the 90's.
Chris "all I do is catch TD's and precision out patterns" Carter.
Jake Reed was a name I was trying to think of. But still Rice should be a better player than him...key word should he has far more talent than Reed ever had. Chris Carter was not a intermediate type receiver he was a finesse WR. He was great at setting corners up and breaking them down...his concentration was second to none...but he didn't have the burst that a guy like Rice has...which is what I was trying to get at with my post above.
