Disappearing Act of Vikings WR Bernard Berrian

Bernard Berrian was brought to the Vikings from the Chicago Bears with a lot of promise and expectations for future success. To say that he has been a bust is a major understatement. He continued his unsuccessful ways during Sunday’s win over the Dallas Cowboys.

According to the NFL’s website, the receiver had one catch for four yards. He also committed a key penalty at a crucial point in the game. Berrian is in his seventh season out of Fresno State who only has six receptions for forty two yards all season. He should be able to compile these statistics in a half, not in five complete games.

Rice and Harvin Questions make Green Bay as NFC North Frontrunner

It has been a tumultuous training camp for the Minnesota Vikings. The recent medical issues pertaining to Percy Harvin’s migraines and Sidney Rice’s hip surgery have added more questions to the mix. With Brett Favre’s late arrival and all of the missed time for Adrian Peterson, the Minnesota Vikings have not taken many snaps together as a cohesive offensive unit this preseason.

The Vikings’ receiving corps has obviously suffered some major blows recently, but the front office has attempted to offset these somewhat by the recent signing of Javon Walker. He’s of course an old target for Brett Favre with the Green Bay Packers, but he is currently on the wrong side of thirty and has some unproductive seasons recently.

Greg Lewis is another receiver on Minnesota’s roster. The Big Ten product out of the University of Illinois has made some big catches with this franchise, but seems to be undersized to have the kind of impact that Rice could consistently have in the red zone.
