There is no secret that the Vikings key position players fare much better when placed with a deep threat receiver who can take the top off of a defense.
During the 2010 season, Percy Harvin had his best personal games when Randy Moss and Sidney Rice were around, and was limited when they were both off set.
Brett Favre had a monster game, much like one from his 2009 season, against the New York Jets once he and Moss got going. Harvin also had his first big day as a result of the success Moss and Favre were having that night.
Teams stack up the line with eight men to stop Adrian Peterson. But when the safety has to play back, Peterson gets to play his game.
Thus it's safe to say that Minnesota NEEDS to have a threat. And no, to that one optimist out there, Bernard...Bernard....that guy who wears number... The Vikings don't currently have a deep threat locked up, let's just go with that.
So this begs the question, where are the Vikings going to find their down field/red zone target at the wide receiver position?
