Will Camarillo’s Role Increase?

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 26, 2011 – 9:28 am

The Vikings acquired Greg Camarillo from the Miami Dolphins roughly two weeks prior to the start of the 2010 regular season. Camarillo’s primary contribution last season was as the team’s punt returner, where he fielded 39 returns without a single fumble. He’s been an occasional contributor in the Vikings passing game, collecting 20 receptions in 2010 and 3 more so far this year.

Camarillo’s role diminished some early this season. He was active in Week 1 but inactive for the next 3 games, largely because Marcus Sherels has handled punt return duties this season. But here have been three developments with the Vikings recently that have caused me to wonder if Camarillo will have a more prominent role with the team going forward.

First, the Vikings are now down a receiver with the release of Bernard Berrian. With Berrian now out of the mix, Percy Harvin and Michael Jenkins become the primary receivers with Devin Aromashodu as the third option. That elevates Camarillo into the regular WR rotation and likely ensures that he’ll be active on a weekly basis.

Secondly, rookie Christian Ponder is now the starting QB and I believe Camarillo’s craftiness and 6 seasons of experience make him a natural safety blanket for a young QB. Case and point is last week’s game against the Packers, where Camarillo consistently wiggled open after Ponder bought time in and out of the pocket. Both of Camarillo’s receptions last week came on 3rd and long plays, where Ponder needed a bailout reception.

“There were a couple times when a route was called and things break down a little bit and Christian runs around and he (Camarillo) ends up uncovering, and part of it is due to his experience and just his wherewithal and his understanding of coverages,” Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier said. “It’s something a veteran receiver would do and he ended up making some big plays for us.”

Lastly, Camarillo could be called upon once again to contribute as a punt returner. Don’t get me wrong, Sherels has done a fine job as a returner. His 12.8-yard average per return is 6th best in the NFL right now. Where Camarillo would help the Vikings as a punt returner is when the opponent is trying to land a punt inside the 20. Sherels has made a few errors in this area of the field by either fielding a punt too close to the end zone or letting a punt hit the ground and be downed by the opposing team deep in Vikings territory. With Camarillo’s sure-handedness and experience in the punt return game, I think he’s less likely to make these errors and therefore could be implemented as a “pinch hitting” punt returner at the appropriate time.

All of this combined with something Frazier said about Camarillo (quote is below) on Monday leads me to the opinion that Camarillo should become more involved in the Vikings game play on a weekly basis. We’ll see if it happens beginning this week in Carolina and then coming out of next week’s bye. I’ll leave you with a complimentary statement from the Vikings Head Coach on Camarillo.

“When you get to know Greg, he is one of those guys that are a true professional,” Frazier said. “He comes prepared everyday to work. He is very studious when it comes to what he has to get done in the classroom and preparation before practices. He works extremely hard and he is the same way when it comes to preparing for games on Sundays. You go to bed on Saturday night thinking you may not be active and then all of a sudden you are active and he doesn’t miss a beat. He goes out and plays an excellent game for us. He is where he is supposed to be, he makes a lot of great catches. That’s who Greg Camarillo is; he’s a pro in every sense of the word.”

    Hopefully Camarillo will get more looks this week. We gave away a solid CB for this guy, so I need to start seeing some production from him. For the most part, I think all of our receivers would be quality 2nd stringers on most teams. I’d give Harvin more credit if he didn’t have injury problems, but right now he’s just not able to get on the field enough for a true first string guy.

    It will be interesting if we get a chance to see Burton make a play. Ponder spread the ball around last week, so it may just come down to how many chances he gets to be on the field.

    BTW that solid CB is currently available I believe…maybe we should pick him up since we are thin, to say the least, in the secondary.

    A solid CB? Benny Sapp is not a solid CB by any means

  5. By Parody on Oct 26, 2011 | Reply

    In comparison to what we’ve been playing with, Sapp had been a very reliable nickel CB. He was doing more for the team than Camarillo has been doing on the other side of the ball. Now, in some small part due to the departure of Sapp, we are as bad at CB as we have ever been with no noticeable improvement to the recieving corps. With injuries, arrests and low production from the CBs we currently have, Sapp would be the favorite as the #1 CB going into Carolina. THere were games last year with so many injured, that he would have been able to outperform the healthy starters as well. Meanwhile, Camarillo has just been fair catching punts. That sure looks like a few steps backward to me.

    Happy to see BB gone. Great news. Dude was simply not productive on any level. Hope Camarillo gets more pt. I don’t feel he’s been given a real chance since coming to the vikes. Had some big grabs last week. Almost has more receptions in one game that BB all year. Disappointed about Cook. Way to ruin your NFL career at such a young age. I just read anyone on the Vikings is more likely to be arrested than any other NFL team. That’s disturbing. Common Man. We’ve had more team arrests than the likes of the bengals, cowboys, raiders over the past several years.

    Again Webb won’t be a WR… We need him to be our 2nd or 3rd string QB. If we let him play WR he might get injured and if Ponder gets injured, too, we are finished with the season ( McNabb won’t be a Viking next year ).

    Exactly! How come we are the only ones that see that? Start Sherels and Burton (if Winfield is not play) and start Raymond over Johnson!!! Johnson is trash, I can cover better than Allen can from my couch. Griffin is a joke…

    We have so much young talent keeping the bench warm…It sucks. Start Burton, Sherels and Raymond….or at least play them some so we can see what we got.

    Well I sure thought after last week after every one of our secondary getting burned repeatedly that that might be the last straw to finally start some of the young guys. I’m still waiting for the blog on how they will be the starters. I thought Burton really flashed in preseason as a good cover corner with good technique and sherels has been doing well in his nickel packages

  15. By Andrew Holmes on Oct 26, 2011 | Reply

    Oh yeah absolutely. Burton has been inactive almost all year. They just activated him this past week before the Packers game.

    Agree Camarillo needs to be in there for all the reasons stated by Mike. I sure wish this all (including benching McNabb) had happened earlier, we might be 3 and 3 or even 4 and 2 now. As for DBs, there seems to be nowhere to go but up, so Frazier might as well try anybody he thinks has a chance of making things better.

    Burton is better than Ash and Griffin(knees are shot). Camarillo is reliable so getting him more playing time is a good idea.

  20. By executron33 on Oct 26, 2011 | Reply

    Regarding Camarillo, I agree it would be nice to have had more production from that trade…but, this has been more a factor of the coaches not using the guy as a WR. Berrian and Aromashadu have had way more action and I think Camarillo is better than either of them. Whenever he’s been given the chance, he’s made plays.
    Regarding Webb, we need to find another position for him, not keep him at backup QB. We need another QB to join the roster. A passer, who’d be better for the scout team anyway. I was happy to read the Vikes tried out McLeod Bethel-Thompson yesterday. He would be a great backup and has some real touch with the football. Back to Webb, I think the Vikes should move him to safety or cb. Maybe he’s not tough enough, I don’t know, but we could use more athleticism in those positions and maybe he’d click.

  21. By Rogerthevikefan on Oct 26, 2011 | Reply

    Benny Sapp was released by the Dolphins after getting destroyed by Tom Brady. I would take a chance on the young guy Burton before Sapp.

  22. By Rogerthevikefan on Oct 26, 2011 | Reply

    If Webb can catch move him to WR. Ponder is the Qb of the present and future. Webb could be a Brad Smith (BILLS) type of WR who can run the Wildcat or Blazer package and also return kicks and punts. Maybe Rhett Bomar is available as a back up.

    Webb can’t catch, that’s why they don’t play him at WR.

    There is one thing that worries me going into this Carolina game and that is the missed tackles. Cam Newton and Steve Smith will have huge plays if we continue to miss tackles. Not to mention their RBs and Greg Olsen who always gave us match up problems when he was with chicago.
    Im sick of guys not wrapping up!!! Instead they lower the shoulder and their head and rely on a hard blow to take him down, the one thing is is that Newton and Smith are quick and make our secondary miss. Example: GB game to stop them and get the ball back the first time, our safety comes in lowers his head and shoulder and completely misses Starks and allows him to pick up the first down.
    Another example: KC game, the huge play to Bowe had our secondary tackled him and not missed him we hold that horrible offense to another FG and we win the game.
    Im just saying wrap up! Go back to fundamentals!
    And can we always wear our throwbacks? They are sick!

    How much longer do we have to put up with Asher Allen? My god its obvious to every team we play that they go right after him and why not I would.

    He couldnt hit water if he fell out a boat!!

    Cut him start new people see what we got, he has had his chance long enough, if were going to get beat let see what others on our roster can do.

    Camarillo is reliable and reminds me of Wes Welker… Great idea to start em more. Our D needs serious help on the back end, but as great as our pass rush is, it wasnt getting enough pressure on Rogers. Love Ponder so far and if it was Mcnabb in there the game woulda been over in the 3rd quarter. Thanx C.Ponder for making a game of it and thanx D for not having the stop we really needed in the end. Not use to seeing our D get lit up like that.

    I don’t get why they don’t use Camarillo more? He reminds me of Wes Welker. All the short routes that can turn into 10-15 yrd plays. Plus he whas great hands. And Ponder seems to trust him.

We have 9 more games, and I think they will be exciting games win or lose! we could end-up being the spoiler considering the rest of our schedule!!! So there will be reason to watch and back our VIKES!!!!

    Couple things:

    1. Am I hallucinating or is the vikings.com landing page (www.vikings.com) not getting updated?

    2. Glad as H E double hockey sticks to see Berrian waived – waste of a roster spot for at least 2 too many years.

    3. Here are my thoughts on Joe Webb. Give Ponder the starting job thru week 14 – that gives you plenty of time to see what you will have in the guy. After that turn it over to Webb for the last couple of games and do all you can to make him look good (stat wise etc) to prime him as trade material. As much as I would like to see him remain a Viking, it isn’t fair to him to keep him as a backup nor would it be feasible to move him to any other position (unless the he is a very good route runner) and with his skill set he may make an interesting option for teams that need a QB allowing the Vikes to pick up more players via the draft.

    Camarillo needs to play on all pass plays so Ponder has a safety valve who can get open and catch the ball. Also agree with Wob to use him on punts deep into our territory.

    Play Camarillo! He’s certainly no worse than the other WR options. If nothing else, it expands the playbook and makes defenses think a little harder. The Packers have shown that putting lots of different WRs on the field is more strategic than just using your top three all the time.

    @Parody: Camarillo has been a good possession reciever. He will go over the middle, and gets to the hole in a zone to provide a target. All professional receivers are fast, although he may be in the slower 3rd of receivers he uses his knowledge to get separation and become a target. I think he’s made a few catches when our QB is under duress. That builds confidence with a quarterback. I like Benny Sapp, but I don’t know if Benny is even in the N.F.L. and if he is, his team hasn’t won yet, so I don’t feel he was a great corner. Only adequate.

  62. By Arrow86 on Oct 26, 2011 | Reply

    Sunday’s game will be a difficult matchup. Our secondary is vulnerable, and Newton is the most mobile QB we’ve faced so far this season. Which can tire out our pass rush. We have to control time of possession with A.P. Our linebackers will need to get a pick or a fumble or both to get our defense off the field.

    I totally agree with you. Other teams rarely run into these higher paid players gettting released mid-season. They evaluate during pre-season. What did Berrian show anyone during pre-season that was any different than last year’s pathetic performance. Spielman, or the coaching staff need to fall on the sword for that choice. When you’re 1-6, more than just Berrian needs to be released! Trades for draft picks need to happen. We’re not going 9-0 and into the playoffs. Let’s develop young talent at a lower payroll. The Vikings are a business, other than long term loyalty to a past greatness, who is buying this product right now?

Funny, I revisited the game– Troy Aikman thought it was a difficult choice and that maybe we should go for it with the limited time on the clock– but then again, Mike said 10 out of 10 times you punt– what does Aikman know? He is just another blogger.

    Using what talent we have, we are not on the same level as Green Bay, but I really think with 6 or 7 of the better high school coaches in Minneapolis we’d be 4-3 or better. I am not impressed with the fact those of us who are common fans realize the weaknesses of this team, and still the front office believes that everyone is improving at a rapid enough rate in those areas to not warrant a change. That’s crazy!

    Jose Webb is a remarkable talent. A decent coaching staff would find a package of plays to utilize his talents several times a game. Instead he wears a baseball cap other than the two plays he hands off out of the pistol each week. Yay, Blazer package. It’s the least explosive play package in football.

    T.O. is a remarkable talent. I heard he is still showing some lingering effects from his off-season knee surgery. Playing in Buffalo and Cincy, humbled T.O. but I don’t think he has the burst to get separation like he once did. Look at the success Jenkins had last Sunday with Ponder, that could be the connection we need. As Harvin regains his health, he’s a dangerous receiver if he catches the ball in stride the yards after catch really skyrocket. Donovan couldn’t take advantage of that, but Ponder will.

    @Arrow 86,

    I agree with you to a certain extent.

    If we had those HIGH SCHOOL COACHES making the decisions on which positions to draft, we would indeed be 4-3 or better. (Those coaches would have to have started in 2003 when the trouble began, unless the last two drafts are also terrible, as they SEEM to be right now.

    Joe Webb….when you are 1-6….you have to feel that they are not saving him
    for anything. So they should play him more. I think he might be a terrific
    defensive back. (We don’t know if he can tackle yet, but I’m betting he can.)

    I see Greg Camarillo preform time after time, in good situations and bad. I have never understood why he wasn’t considered a slot or flanker in rotation with Percy.They both have great hands, they both have an ability to split defenders, and get open to make plays. The deffences want to load the box to stop Adrian, why not expose thier soft side,10 -12 yards down field.Let Shank and Roudoff , and Adrian draw the deffence down short, and cut them up in the intermidiate range.

    Should be a great game this Sunday me and my family and friends will be there at the game. Some are Carolina fans thats ok it will be the first game for my 6 year old grandson. Very excited.
    I hope that we are preparing Webb to fill in for Harvin not sure he is 100%. Webb could easily fill in on some plays he can be a playmaker and maybe the difference needed for a WIN!!!!

    It’s about time. Myself and all my Vikings friends have been talking about Camerillo all season. Easily one of the Vikings most reliable recievers (yes, very much like Welker). He should be in on almost every play. Why does it seem to take so long for the coaches to recognize things like that?

    It takes the Vikes coaches so long to see it, because the receiving core starters are based on who gets paid the most. Berrian was getting outplayed by every other receiver on the roster, and yet….It takes 7 regular season games to be rid of him! Either the coaching staff, or the GM are idiots, and I think it’s both!

    Coach Frazier: Please think about bringing up some young players from the practice squad???? We need to see exactly who we have and if they could possibly be a contributing factor to our future endeavors. Who knows; maybe we have someone on that squad just waiting to contribute in a fashion we havent seen yet? Please think “outside the box” and give these guys the chance to prove themselves to the team. You never know; some may surprise alot of people. Best of luck to Camarillo. He might be slower than some but he very rarely misses a catch. He gives 110% which this team sorely lacks right now. We have to reenergize this team and if it requires alot of adjustments being made (which are tough calls for sure) in order for this team to regroup than so be it. Our team has it in themselves to “rise to the occasion”. We need to follow-through and continue to adjust the roster when needed. SKOL VIKINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
