Lughead Posted November 21, 2007 Share Posted November 21, 2007 I Started thinking about the individual match ups we would have when Minni comes to town Sunday and other than Chester Taylor, Tavaris Jackson and AD (who is out) the only other Viking I know is Shiancoe . yeah that guy that used to come in for Shockey and well I guess did nothing. Anyway I was looking at the match ups and though who do we have to watch for in terms of WR for the Vikings . so I go to their depth chart and start looking over the names I see Bobby Wade number 19 and Troy Williamson #82 are their #1 and #2 guys. I then go to their stats to see how they have been doing and I was a little befuddled to what I found after 11 games. Wade,their top #1 receiver has a total of 31 catches for 358 yards and 0 TD's on the year thats only 32.54yards per game Williamson, their #2 receiver (in depth) has 12 catches for 193 yards and 1 TD on the year that's only 17.72 yards per game Sidney rice their #3 Receiver (in depth) has 20 catches for 230 yards and 2 TD's on the year thats only 20.90 yards per game and he is questionable with a hamstring for Sunday. Shiancoe is ranked 3rd highest in their Receiving Statistics with 19 catches for 272 yards and 1 td on the year and thats only 24.72 yards per game so here is a look at the rest of the receiving stats chart for Minni . Robert Ferguson 16 catches for 167 yards for the year and Chester Taylor 13 catches 171 yards on the year. both with 0 td's. Both ahead of the Vikings #2 receiver in receptions mind you. This is a chance for our Secondary to a fun day for a change. o.k. ,now lets look at their Rb situation. We all know AD is out for this game so the load is shifted to Chester Taylor who has 83 attempts for 468 yards this year wich is only an average of 42.54 yards per game and 4 td's on the year. He got 164 yards last week against the Raiders the next in line is Mewelde Moore who has 10 attempts for 71 yards 7.1 yards a game with 0 td's . The QB situation ? well It looks like Jackson is the starter and he has 127 attempts and 771 yards in 6 games and only 2 td's and 5 int's Bottom Line is we take care of the run we will win the game as long as Tavaris does not turn into a Randell Cunningham <_ ...... i still to this day can not belive he got away from carl banks> Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
