Burleson......the poor man's Moss???

Postby DudeLaw » Sun Nov 14, 2004 7:17 pm

anyone start Burleson this week since Moss was out? I did and I'm reaping the benefits. I'm watching the game, he has about the same frame as Moss....just not as fast and athletic. :-)

How long will Moss be out? Is this a guy a solid start anytime Moss is on the sidelines??

Daunte, Daunte, say it ain't so!
That touchdown was meant for Burlehson, not Onterrio!

I think that he is a more solid start when Moss is playing. Moss will take 2 Defensive players making Burleson have single coverage most of the time resulting in better nmbers. But he is having a very good game

One of the reasons he's getting so many looks is that Al Harris is just shutting down Marcus Robinson.

Started him this week, but last week's 2 TD's and 90 ret yards was money.

well, not especially, since when Moss is playing, Burlehson is a 3rd receiver, so he doesn't get near as many looks. Granted, the Vikes use 3+ WR looks often enough, but not all the time.
