Why would you want someone else who is rough around the edges? Don't we already have that? Granted, Aromashadu and Burton haven't really been making the plays to make us feel that we're going to have a stellar receiving corps going forward, but they both have the physical attributes and the potential to turn into just that. Don't discount the talk about how far Manny Arceneaux has improved since last season. Also, this is preseason, with our star running back out, and one of our TE (a major position in the offensive scheme) out. The majority of our offense is likely to be 2 TE sets, in which case it will be Simpson and Harvin. Why freak out over the fact we don't have another big receiver?
It'd be great to see the Vikes win this year. But, in all honesty, I'd happily give up a stellar winning season this season in order for the team to be able to, through the draft, develop into an organization like the Steelers or Pats or Colts (except for last season), where a season that they don't make the playoffs is a surprising occurrence. I'm honestly tired of this trend of win for a couple years, stink it up for 3 years, win for 2, and so on. I'd rather give our FO a couple of years with a proper organizational structure to see what they can build through the draft, and stop this trend of free agent stopgaps.
