so where did you come from...the vikings dont have the worst receiving corps in the league, they are all just young, and inexperienced...give them some time and they will be good...this whole vikings offense is young, 1st year starter at qb, rookie running back, young offensive line, and young recievers. give them some time to gel, and it will all work out, you wait and see
Name a worse receiving corp. Seriously... Being young is not a defense for not being any good. The Titans are bad and we signed their 5th guy to be our 2nd? I mean we are seriously bad, we have some potential but right now thats all we have.

I mean the only teams with a case are Tampa Bay and Tennessee. I only listed guys who outproduced our top returning WR. I didnt include RBs. Tampa Bay flat out have a better first guy than us other than that there is an argument. Tennessee blew it all up and may be worse.
That said, you know your WR position stinks when your best returning receiver is a backup RB. A guy like Joey Galloway literally has better numbers than all of our receivers that are coming back put up last year. That is when you know that you suck at WR.
I can see the argument that we are only the 2nd worst at WR in the league, I wouldn't make it, Jones finished hot for the Titans and I like Ben Troupe more than our TEs. But still, I can see the argument.
Im not saying this same group cant be good. Im saying that going into this season we have the worst WR group in the league. Even if Rice were to go Randy Moss as a rookie we would be in the bottom half. We are banking on Williamson, Rice and Allison all being big producers. Thats risky.
