Vikings | No Clear No. 1 Wide Receiver; Short Passes in Order?

Bob Sansevere, of the Pioneer Press, reports with Minnesota Vikings WR Nate Burleson (knee) expected to miss the team's Week 3 game the team does not have a solid No. 1 wide receiver. "I can't tell you who'll be our No. 1 receiver until we start playing the game,'' Vikings head coach Mike Tice said. Tice called WR Travis Taylor his "most consistent receiver," and a team-leading 10 catches backs that up. He isn't the deep threat Burleson is, but the Vikings still can get by without the long pass - if QB Daunte Culpepper adapts. Culpepper needs to avoid turnovers and rebuild his confidence and the quickest way for him to rebuild it is to complete passes and move the chains. That means throwing short, high-percentage passes to RB Mewelde Moore and TE Jermaine Wiggins.
