You should've seen Burleson last night. He had 5 catches for 97 yards in 1 quarter.

Usually, when you can't even tell which side people think is getting the better end of the deal, that's a pretty good sign the trade shouldn't be vetoed.

For some reason I just don't trust the guy. I got the same feeling when it cames to Oliver Perez in baseball, and he turned out to be a bust.

I'm one of the believers that Moss made Culpepper and not the other way around. Also I'm one of the guys that likes to see players do it for a full year instead of 5 games as a #1 reciever. He's going to be seeing double teams, the running game is brutal which means the Vikings will be in pass mode and the defense is going to send an a linebacker into coverage, etc.

Just get that bad feeling.....

Dont worry cordscords - I completely agree with you. His pricetag is just way too high for my liking.

Those who say look what he did when Moss was out last yr - I think need to go back and take their own advice. He averaged less than 60 yards a game against some of the absolute worst pass Ds in the NFL during that stretch.

I probably wont have Burleson on any of my teams unless he falls a good 2-3 rds. He's way overhyped.

yeah...I was asking cause really I don't understand why people would veto it.

As much as I...and well..FF'ers in general like KJ's potential this year, he's no Alexander.

Depending on the build of the teams involved, it could be a very even trade.

I agree. T.O. made McNabb a top QB last year and he'll do it again this year. I think C-Pep is going to have a down year losing Moss.

Moss and T.O are just that good.

Moss is the single reason Collins is a top 5-7 QB this year when just a year ago he wasn't even draftable.

Regardless of what you think of Culpepper and Burleson, the fact that the Vikes play the Steelers and Ravens in the playoff weeks will make me leery of drafting either of them (or any other viking, for that matter).

The Minnesota Viking most likely to end up on my redraft team this year is Travis Taylor.

I definately agree with that. I can see big things from Taylor this year, and own him in my money league. ;-D

On the other hand, I just drafted Burleson in my new keeper league tonight. I was a little shakey on doing it, but I can see him being a solid threat in that offense.
