I'm in the land of nobody now, so I rely on my knowledge of growing up in the land of Broten and Ciccarelli to get me by. Laughing

Although, it's a completely different sport than the one I watched then.

No. Stephen, pronounced Steven.


Well I think someone said his name wrong during the game, or before the game was aired.

BTW, I can't tell much of a difference when people say "Stephen" or "Steven". Maybe its just the ending? Stephen- "in". Steven- "en"

Yep, Jenkins' base salary was cut by $1.5 million this year. Read a little further and they kept the same overall contract value by adjusting roster and performance bonuses.

Jenkins will make the team, but now they jostled some numbers around and should have more money if they want to sign someone else that gets cut.

Good point, certainly, the team should be on the look out for some DT or MLB help. Jenkins at $1 million is not bad value and if some of the youngsters step up (Simpson and Burton), Jenkins will be a #4, at best. Even so, having that kind of veteran experience on the bench isnt a bad thing for the youth on the roster.

Receivers coach George Stewart said Jarius Wright is "not there yet" in his route-running but has impressed coaches with his football IQ, mainly his ability to grasp concepts and formations.

Stewart: "You quiz him and ask him questions, he can spit it back to you. With that for a young player, regardless of formation -- we have a variety of formations we use -- he's able to be in the right spot, run the right depth and he'll continue to be a good player for us."

The Vikings are intrigued by Wright's combination of speed (4.42 seconds in the 40-yard draft at the NFL combine) and versatility. He's mainly a slot receiver but can play outside if necessary.

I dont like the slot receiver steoreotype with Wright. He displayed the ability in college as an exceptional route runner as an outside receiver, combined with his exceptional speed, Wright could be a player to look out for.

However, with Harvin taking on a larger role in the offense, it doesnt hurt having a player like Wright who has versatility in the slot and as an outside receiver. If Wright can elevate his game, and Simpson can live up to expectations, I like that trio (plus Harvin), in 3 wide sets. Lots of speed and explosiveness.

No one is more excited about new Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson than his position coach, George Stewart.

Stewart: "In terms of a guy who can stretch the field, we haven't had one here like him -- and I'll go out on a limb when I say this -- since Randy Moss. I knew he was athletic but didn't realize he's as good as he is. He has ability to make plays downfield."

That is a key phrase, in finding a WR opposite of Harvin. We know what Harvin can do and where he is limited, but to stick as a starting WR, MN needs a guy who will make those plays down field. Hopefully Simpson can be that guy. Devin Aromashodu has shown flashes of being capable in that role. Burton has also been on the receiving end of down field passes. I think between those three players, MN will have some capable down field receivers.

I just took a flyer on Simpson in my fantasy league with my last pick. I know he'll be sitting on my bench for the first 3 weeks, so I could have waited, but I thought "Oh, what the hell", it's not like he's going to be taking up a more productive player's spot.

I wonder what the price would be to get Dwayne Bowe off the Chiefs hands. A 2nd and 4th to have a #1 WR for 4-5 years. Might make things more interesting for 2012.

I'd rather go after Dez Bryant (which won't happen. Jerry Jones loves all his flashy players. Makes his team recognizable) or just wait for Justin Hunter in next year's draft.

or Dwight Jones? lol
