Vikings Won’t Overlook WR Burleson, DT Williams

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 23, 2011 – 12:22 pm

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson and DT Ndamukong Suh are arguably the best players at their respective positions in the NFL. Johnson has more TD receptions (33) than any other WR since he entered the League and Suh was a consensus choice for defensive rookie of the year honors after last season.

So the Vikings will certainly focus much of their attention on those two players this Sunday when the Lions challenge at Mall of America Field. But Detroit has several other talented players in the fold as well, and it’s clear the Vikings won’t be overlooking them.

One such player is WR Nate Burleson, a former Viking who is known for his intelligence and quicker-than-fast, sure-handed skill set. Burleson was a 3rd-round pick of the Vikings in 2003, was signed by the Seattle Seahawks in 2006 and then returned to the NFC North with the Lions in 2010. He jumped right into the swing of things last year by grabbing 55 receptions and scoring 6 TDs, and this year he leads the Lions in receptions with 12 and looks to be a serious threat from the slot.

To give you an idea of the kind of player he is, Burleson recently compared his style of play to that of New England’s Wes Welker. While comparing oneself to Welker is lofty, Burleson has looked the part at times in his career and Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier didn’t deny that he’s someone for which the defense needs to account.

“You can’t ignore him,” Frazier said after practice on Friday. “He’s making a lot of plays for their offense on reverses, underneath routes, a lot of yards after the catch. He’s really helped make their offense a complete offense. He’s not getting some of the headlines of course that Calvin will get, but he’s really become a major factor in their pass offense.”

The other player to watch is DT Corey Williams, a player with whom the Vikings are quite familiar. Williams began his career with the Green Bay Packers and after 4 seasons there played for the Cleveland Browns. The Browns traded him to Detroit in 2010 and, much like Burleson, it didn’t take Williams long to become a factor on the team. Williams played and started in 16 games in 2010, and along the way he recorded 4 passes defensed, 2.0 sacks and an INT.

At 6-4, 320 pounds, Williams has the bulk to stuff the run. But he’s also athletic enough to chase the passer. The Vikings saw that athleticism last year because Williams INT came against the Vikings. It should also be noted that Williams’ impact on Detroit’s defense is not always seen in the box score; he’s much like Kevin Williams for the Vikings defense in that way. Williams is huge for the Lions defense because he can command attention from multiple blockers, and if he gets a one-on-one matchup he can ruin plays and change games.

Yes, Calvin Johnson and Ndamukong Suh are the best players on Detroit’s team. But don’t sleep on Burleson and Williams, either. The Vikings won’t be.

    I want to start by responding to Daniel from the previous blog but it was getting to packed …

    I like Coach Pagacs presser … he has an old school mans man approch and its refreshing to hear his honesty , I would say some of his ums and ahs are a result of carefully wording the truth without dropping a name

    Pagac seems to be the most straight forward honest coach we have and I like him

    @Mike W good post. Nate Burleson is a great 2nd WR he can catch the ball well and make some moves to get into the endzone. They have a great one two punch with the lions. I would put them in same calibre as Moss Carter Team was. That Detroit DL is getting very tough. The OL better be ready for a tough game. That said they are young and vets find ways to beat younger players. Let’s hope that is the case on Sunday.

    I like the fact Henry Thomas was volunteering for us and hope we have room for him before another team gets him

    Other former players we should call are Cris Carter , Rich Gannon, Zimmerman or McDaniel weve had many players that would love to coach …. Im guessing

I find it funny that Karen Rodgers said Mark Sanchez’s spread in GQ was “embarassing” because Karen says he likes his privacy and doesnt like off the field endevurs. Yet he is on every other commercial here and its sickening! Also just to add a co-worker of mine’s son was fresh off the jet from Iraq(in his fatigues) and ran into Karen Rodgers in the airport and asked him if he would autograph something or take a picture with him and he wouldnt do it for less than $100.

    @Vikiing Joe You will have to admit toward the end of Chris Carters career he was more of a possession reciever. I am not saying Nate Burleson is as good as CC in his career, but adds that possesion receiver anywhere he is on the field. Calvin Johnson does have the potential to be as good or better than Randy Moss though. Just being honest. It makes this pair of WRs very dangerous on the field. We had Nate on our team and he was showing great promise until Seattle got him away from us after the Hutch deal.

    I can tell you this– the Vikes will play like they did against Philly last year. Expect our d with Williams back, Allen completely fed up with losing, hard hitting Winfield to cause havoc on Detroit and Stafford scurrying for his life. Adrian will run for 150 yards and Toby will add another 50 to it. McNabb will be a little better, and overall, the Lions get a reality check– they lose by two TDs.

It seems, and I watch by TV, that if the opposition creeps back into it, our fans become complacent– the whole spirit in this Midwestern village is one of mediocrity and we can only win if we have a huge comfort zone of a margin.

    Stop it with this Suh is the best in the game non sense. Haloti Ngata is the best DL in the game by far, because he’s awesome at everything. I would take Kevin Williams over Suh. Suh is a liability against the run until proven otherwise he and can be schematically taken out of a game through traps since he’s relying, over rated. Wait and see how the kid develops before you crown him, jeez.

    On the other hand, Megatron is not even human. How awesome is the nickname Megatron? I think Calvin is #2 behind Andre Johnson but he’s the one guy I could see challenging Andre this year.

    Fred, this game is the season. We win, we are on a roll. We lose, we have traded places with the Lions in the NFC north– we must win for confidence, momentum, and because it is our division, or I believe it will spiral out of control and we have one or two wins at the Bye. This game is crucial. I believe we will dominate and shock the Lions. Win by at least two TDs.

    I just watched the video with Joe Theisman and Joe said what we all know- McNabb always throws too high or too low. And I am concerned he believes he has too much success and experience to be taught how to improve.

    Although the offense has been terrible, or defense has also blown it many times.

    @Titus, part two,

    Perhaps it’s not a “must win,” as Frazier stated.

    However, if we do not win it, 8-8 will take a great finish.

    The defensive and offensive lines must come to play, and FOR THE TEAM, not for individual glory.

    Watch the Tom Brady films. Sure sometimes the line folds and he has to hurry up. But most of the time guys like Brady and Rodgers have TIME to throw.

    To me it’s sickening how people often think it’s the quarterback. McNabb will complete p a s s e s most of the time, when he’s not being rushed.

    Fred, Joe Theisman was what? Oh, I forgot. A quarterback. He showed several highlights– McNabb had time– a Brady or Favre would have thrown the ball where it belonged — not to the two or eight foot receiver. McNabb needs to admit he has some issues to improve upon. Stop the excuses. Stop the insanity.

    Shawn– if you go way back — months ago, you will see where I argued even though McNabb has been successful, I have never been impressed with him.

    And as much as I hate to admit it,
    Green Bay and, to perhaps a lesser extent, Chicago, appear to be much more complete as teams than we are.
    To say nothing of of other good teams outside of our division.
    We may indeed be simply average or below……perhaps this is truly at time to re-build for us.

    McNabb isn’t TJacklike, really. I think Donovan makes good decisions, he’s just inaccurate at times… well, quite often. TJack just makes straight up bad decisions and is inaccurate way too often.

    I’ve never been impressed with McNabb. People have always held him in higher regard than they should have. I don’t know if its his ethnicity or the ill treatment he received on draft day or his likeable personality, but I think he’s always gotten too much credit. He’s an average p@sser at best, but had the legs to extend plays. I knew we were in deep trouble when they traded for him, and will be very surprised if he is able to redeem himself after last years debacle.

    I don’t put all the blame on McNabb, however. I think Favre was still viable last year, but the protection was atrocious. Couple that with no Syd Rice, and he was tooled. The team isn’t that much different than last year… maybe a bit better with Rudolph and Jenkins on the squad. We went 6-10 last year… lets hope we can improve on that.

    Tom Brady and other respected Qbs buckle under pressure with little pressure in their face. I saw it several times last year, and Detroit showed how Brady does with no protection in pre-season. Is McNabb the most accurate QB? No….but his completion percentage would be a bit higher if he had a clean pocket often instead of wondering on every play if he has to run. That’s a fact

    That’s not an excuse, the guy needs to play better. But also be fair. Film has shown the receivers don’t get consistent separation. Oh and btw…to deny McNabb’s past success shows short term memory. I have always been impressed with him. The guy was a play maker and even led the league in yards and tds before injuries at one point. He doesn’t always make it look pretty, but neither does Big Ben. He’s done more than Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco, and plenty of other highly rated Qbs. Don’t take that away from him

    3.5 points…doesn’t sound like Vegas loves the Lions just yet…Vikes squeeze this one out 26-24. Don’t let the 1st two weeks fool you..the Lions didn’t turn into the Patriots over the summer..Time for this team to show some guts..let’s go Vikes

    Like i said many times… Brett Favre destroyed this team. If Chilly was 0-2 people would be calling for his head. Childress was not the problem. He helped put together a true contender. Favre came along and quickly drove a wedge between the players and the coach. I am done with this team and the NFL forever. Greedy players who don’t give a darn about anything but themselves are a joke. That’s OK… only a few more weeks and a real sport,…the best sport in the world begins… NHL Hockey. Don’t bother watching though America, it is too fast and exciting for most of you to follow. There aren’t breaks every 10 seconds filled with hype and statistics and not enough time in between whistles to stuff your fat faces. Get bent NFL. Don’t bother responding anyone, I won’t be posting on here again. Vikings stink with a capitol S. I am going to burn all my NFL gear ASAP.

    This is the 10 year anniversary of Bledsoe going down and Brady carving his place in history. I’m sorry to say, but McNaab is done. He is nothing but a back up QB. I don’t want him seriously hurt but Ponder needs to take the reins of the team ASAP. This is the only chance the Vikes have to show what they have from this point foward.

    Well either way this game will go in our favor. If we win, thats great. If we lose, the rest of the season will most likely just fall apart completely and then Andrew Luck next year! =]
