You know you're desperate for WRs when...

When you see people like Eddie Kennison now available and you think, "Hm, I wonder if he'd be willing to come to Minnesota?"

Other lousy receivers the Vikes could sign include Justin McCareins and Brandon Lloyd. Looks like they're dodging the proverbial bullet on Muhsin Muhammed, though.

Those of us who grew up with Anthony Carter, Cris Carter, Jake Reed, and Randy Moss are now holding our heads in our hands.

    Oh, it goes further back than that, I'm afraid. The Vikings, since their inception in 1961, have never failed to have a wide receiver on their roster who did not make a Pro Bowl at least once in his Vikings career. Until 2005 and 2006, that is, and 2007, unless Sidney Rice or perhaps Aundrae Allison someday gets to a Pro Bowl. It really is remarkable how rich the Vikings tradition at wr has been, and how low that standard has now fallen.

    Geez, it must be getting late. I meant to say, of course, that the Vikings, since 1961, have always had at least one wide receiver on their roster who made at least one Pro Bowl in his Vikings career. Until 2005 and 2006, that is, and possibly 2007, depending on how Rice's and Allison's careers go. Somehow, I don't think Bobby Wade and Robert Ferguson are going to get to that level.
