    Bump.

    We could have definitely used K-Rob against da Bears. We need his KR/PR skills + when Jennings went out for a few series, he was really missed.

    He could have really stretched the field for us too as our 4th WR/deep threat. I can't wait until he's back.

    Agreed. This may be almost as big as in '96 when we picked up Rison.

    he is having his liver tested to show he hasnt had a drink...He is taking a pill that makes him sick if he drinks..

    This came from Jay Glazer who PERSONALLY talked with K-rob when they worked out together in Arizona

    and he expects to be back for the game after the bye

    Just heard it right now on sports radio 1250 am in Milwaukee

    This just got a fist-in-the-air salute. I like hearing stories like this about Robinson. And his return.

    I swear they was not to be any contact between Koren and the Packers, but I must be wrong.

    It would be impossible to enforce that. I think he was just banned from Packers facilities.

    yeah, Favre's initial ire with the league was because it banned Koren from hanging out @ team facilities, which would obviously make it easier for a guy struggling with alcohlism to just to 'hang out' and get some support from team members. We all know how hard it is to call a friend for the explicit purpose of 'talking'.

    When it first came down, I took it to mean that he was still allowed to talk to teammates, just not on NFL property...

    I'm getting all giddy with the news that Robinson seems to have gotten his life straight.

    God, what a boost that'd be to our team. :D

    Think of what he could do for special teams.

    Also as a deep threat. That's the one thing he can do that the other four can't. He's big and fast which provides a huge advantage on the outside. Then you have Jennings and Driver in the slot. Don't forget about James Jones either. It could really be something fun to watch.

    DD, Jones, GJ, K-Rob running routes on the same play! opposing defenses wouldd be shaking in there boots.

    I wonder what kind of an impact K-Rob will make when he first comes back?

    Just read that Koren Robinson runs the 40 is between 4.32 and 4.38. I guess I can see why Brett said Koren was our only true deep threat at WR.


    Here's an article before he was drafted.


    I remember someone asking if Robinson was going to help our running game. I noticed he was a former Tailback lol hmm

    Mr Jennings better not see that!!


    I am very curious tho...Why does it seem everyone is acting like he is the 2nd coming of Jennings ( LOL )

    I personally like him cuz he is another option, does have some speed, is pretty good at holding on to the ball ( only one LOST fumble as a wr/k/r)

    Look at his stats, and its really isnt anything to write home about, or is it???

    75 games
    242 catches--3 catches per game
    3603 yards--38 yards per game
    14.9 yards per catch
    13 tds

    59 k/o returns in 17 games
    1474 return yards---15 yards per return
    1 td

    Considering Koren was probably going to be the Vikings #1 receiver going into 2006 (and probably in '07 too) before he decided to drive back to St. Cloud drunker than hell with the cops chasing him during training camp, he definitely brings veteran experience and some potentially very good play-making ability to our young corps of receivers once he gets back up to speed

    That being said, I'm still kind of holding my breath even though all signs point to him getting reinstated sooner than later. Until Goodell actually reinstates him, it's pretty much wishful thinking at this point. Although, unless there's something we don't know about, there really is very little reason to think he won't get reinstated.

    Koren is very overrated and always has been. Every year in Seattle was going to be his "breakout" year. He's not a good 1 or 2 but he'll be useful as a 3-4 and give us a deep threat.

    K-Rob will be our 4th WR. Put him against any other 4th WR and he'd probably win by a landslide.

    The reason we're so high on K-Rob is I can't think of any team that can matchup their 4th CB against K-Rob and be confident in that matchup. Plus, he always has the potential to break a KR for a TD. He has a history of it.

    Plus......just my opinion.....he's gonna come back hungry! He's gonna want to be part of the action!
    They showed him on TV this morning. He's been working out down south. So IF they reinstate him, he would be a good addition.
