With Harvin (sprained ankle) expected to be healthy coming out of the bye week, the question is whether the Vikings can use him and Wright at the same time.

Anyone know why Steven Burton is on this team?

I know they would like to have a tall receiver, especially someone like Megatron, or even Rice. But those guys aren't just good because they're tall, they're good because they're good. I would rather see good, fast receivers than just height for the sake of height.

Let's slow down a little bit. Wright caught only three passes. Two back to back. He did nothing after that. I never saw him throw a block. Im not throwing cold water on the idea of him playing more but Harvin he is not.

I agree with ryanton. There is a need for speed. I know Jenkins is a good blocker but the way to move people away from Peterson is to get the other team thinking about covering our fast wide receivers. Hopefully Simpson and Harvin will be 100% healthy for Chicago. We know Harvin has been hurt and Frazier has mentioned that Simpson hasn't played like his old self since his leg/back problem. Get all three of those guys on the field at once. Not just Harvin and Wright.

Why wouldn't Frazier put them in there together? Let Wright take Jenkins' spot along side with Harvin and Simpson. There is no reason not to play them together. Their speed alone should keep the opponent's strong and free safety at home. If they bring one or both safeties up for run support, it will leave these fast WRs with one on one coverage. Will give the Vikings lots of options to run their offense.
