Yes it is a sarcastic title. Why? Because once again Troy Williamson got open deep on a 1st and 10 play (set up wonderfully by a dominant run game), and somehow put his hands together a half-a-second after the ball passed through them.
Now I am not going to label Williamson a bust yet, but when you are a wide receiver who has had problems with coordination and depth perception it cannot bode well for you when you miss a very catchable ball. Troy, you are on a short leash with me and from what I saw from Sidney Rice on the second drive of the game tonight (i.e. a tough catch of a not so well thrown ball by Jackson) your time might be running out. Bobby Wade seems to have good chemistry with Jackson and as of right now definitely looks like the #1 WR in this offense.
Best thing about the game tonight? E.J. Henderson, Antoine Winfield, and Marcus McCauley. E.J. Henderson is all over the place. He got pressure on Hasselbeck and appeared to be all over the field. Winfield was his usual tackling stud and showed some great instinct on his interception. Marcus McCauley is destined to be the #2 CB on this team, maybe not this year but next year it should be his job (nothing against Griffen, but McCauley looks like a stud).
The destiny of this years Vikings team lies in the hands of Tarvaris Jackson and the offensive line. Tarvaris cannot turn over the ball and the offensive line cannot afford to be undisciplined and have false starts (yes that means you Ryan Cook). This team will be a ball control team, but in order for that to be successful penalties have to be at a minimum (we cannot afford to be the penalty ridden team we were under the leadership of Mike Tice).
