Berrian Makes For Interesting Subplot

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 2, 2009 – 1:31 pm

Obviously the main story surrounding Monday night’s Vikings-Packers game is QB Brett Favre facing his former team. But there are several other interesting subplots to pay attention to as well.

Bernard Berrian is the subject of one of those storylines. We 1st mentioned this in today’s “Key Matchups” feature, which you can read by clicking here.

Berrian is now in his 2nd year with the Vikings, so he’s getting a taste of the rivalry that exists between the Vikings and Packers. But Berrian also spent the first 4 years of his career with Chicago, who calls the Packers their biggest rival as well. Suffice it to say, Berrian has just as much reason and passion for beating the Bears as anyone.

In 8 career games against Green Bay, Berrian has 16 catches for 306 yards and 1 TD. Those aren’t exactly startling numbers, so perhaps Berrian is due for a big game against the Pack. On Monday night, he’ll get his 1st of 2 regular season chances in 2009 to pick up the production against the Vikings rival.

    I’m still apprehensive about Berrian. He has been dropping too many throws for the guy in the #1 slot. If he doesn’t start hanging on to the ball this week, then we really need to consider readjusting the depth chart.

    I think Berrian was hurt for the opener last year in Green Bay. When he is healthy, he is extremely dangerous. I agree Mike, Berrian is due for a great game against the Packers. MNF is a great time to pull it off.

    No berrian hasn’t had a good yr so far but I know from last yr what he’s capiable of doing.Favre still throws with a lot of heat and berrian will soon get used to it.Favres late arrial shows in his jelling with the recievers.I think rice will have a big game also he has come on a lot better this yr.We will see a better berrian this week and the weeks to come.

    Berrian had an interupted pre season with injury so it will take some time to get back to his best which is plenty good enough. Favre hasn’t had a pre season either so when these two are 100% back to game fitness they will connect a lot more and look out NFL when that happens.
