Tiny Richardson turning heads with Vikings

Recommended Posts



Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman. . .spoke positively of Richardson saying he’s “popped up” (during OTA’s.)

 

Such a glowing endorsement.

my first thought was that this thread was about one of jerry richardson's sons, inexplicably referred to as "tiny"

I think I'm going to cry with ctrcat on this one..  I mean, I have nothing invested in any of this but he sounds so concerned..

Such a glowing endorsement.

Spielman is no Einstein and I'd probably rather have Hurney, but there was no risk on this one and it's salt on the wound.

There's no indication we didn't make him a UDFA offer and he chose the Vikings instead. But his knees scared off every team from using a draft pick on him.

 

And has been repeated ad nauseum, the front office feels Bell or Chandler will be better. We'll just have to see.

Maybe we offered him a deal and he said fug the Panthers. Maybe he is a huge fan of Norse mythology and likes purple.

In other words he's just a guy.

The interview probably went like this...

Reporter: How's Tiny been doing.

Spielman: He's popped up a few times here and there.

Fans: Well damn we just got our Victor Cruz

You can't expect the general manager to come out and say the guy is struging or he's going to get cut. Spielman saying he's pumped up is about the equivalent to Rivera saying that he likes some of things Bell is doing.

Personally, I'd wait to crown him. Pads aren't an issue for me because you either know the technique or you don't. However, not going full speed is an for me because you can know the technique and overall be a decent player but not be quick enough.

Hard to believe he'd chose frostbite and a team in the johnny flusher over a team closer to home with a need at tackle but with all the other pieces to become the greatest dynasty of the salary cap era. Possible, but maddening.

Not to mention his former teammate and supposed lesser prospect was a top 20 pick and he has countless reasons to be motivated.

I hate when people make threads about unproven players we could have taken a chance on that show flashes out of pads in OTAs.

I hate it too. I'm a Panthers fan and GMan fan. I rarely question his genius but my momma didn't raise no dummy either and with Rogers last year and Tiny this year the frustration is justified and real.

I think Tiny hates Cam Newton and knows that Teddy B is already the better QB. He took the sure thing because, hey, he doesn't like towels and thinks they have no place on the sidelines let alone on the QBs head. If you check his twitter profile under pet peeves he has "fake smiles" in all caps.
