Great Traditions Must End Sometime (Viking Wide Receivers)

Between 1987 and 2003, there were only four players to lead the Minnesota Vikings in receiving yards for a season: Anthony Carter (highest output: 1,225), Cris Carter (1,371), Jake Reed (1,320), and Randy Moss (1,632). In the last two seasons, Travis Taylor led the team in receiving yards--with 604 and 651 yards. And there is no indication that in 2007 there will be anybody on the Viking roster to restore the franchise's great tradition of WRs (that could go further back to Ahmad Rashad, Sammy White, Gene Washington, and John Gilliam).

Right now, the Vikings suck royally at what may be the easiest position to fill in the NFL.

    As a Lions fan, I disagree with the opinion that WR is the easiest position to fill. Maybe you should add the qualifier, "...assuming your GM is more competent than a monkey on drugs."

  2. Too bad you missed out on Wes Welker.
