Some more info on Mr. Moore

"Moore is only the 2nd player in NCAA history to rush for 4,000 yards and have 2,000 yards receiving in a career, joining former Viking Darrin Nelson (Stanford). Moore ranks 11th in Division I history in all-purpose yards with 6,505 yards. He ran for 100+ yards in 22 games to set Tulane and Conference USA records. His 36 career TDs rank 2nd in Tulane and C-USA history. Moore ran for 1,138 yards as a junior and 1,421 as a sophomore, respectively, to set Tulane’s single-season rushing record. Moore was also, drafted in the 4th round of the 2000 Major League Baseball draft by the San Diego Padres. He spent 3 summers in the organization while in college."

In 2005, Moore enjoyed a breakout year of production as a rusher, receiver and return man. He was the only player in the NFL to score by rush, reception and punt return in 2005. He became only the 2nd Viking to score a rushing, receiving and punt return TD, joining Pro Football Hall of Famer Hugh McElhenny in 1961. Moore posted the 9th punt return TD in Vikings history with a 71-yard TD at the New York Giants in the Vikings win. The 71-yard punt return TD was the 6th longest punt return TD in team history and 8th-long overall punt return. Moore was part of an NFL-record setting day in Giants Stadium as he joined Koren Robinson (kickoff return TD) and Darren Sharper (INT return TD) to become the only team in NFL history to score all 3 ways in a game. Moore ranked 2nd in the NFC and 3rd in the NFL with an 11.7 yard average on punt returns. Moores 11.7 average was the 4th-best in Vikings history. Moore became the highest-ranked Vikings punt returner (3rd in NFL) since 1997 when David Palmer was 3rd in the League. Moore led team in rushing (662 yards), punt returns (245 yards) and was 3rd on team in receptions (37). Moore broke the 100-yard rushing mark twice on the season with 101 vs. New Orleans and 122 at Green Bay. The 122 yards at Green Bay on Monday Night Football made him the 4th Vikings RB to break 100 yards on Monday Night. Moore was honored along with cornerback Dovonte Edwards for the Monday Night Green Bay game by being put on ABC's “Horse Trailer”.

Accomplishments

* Holds Vikings record with a 10.5-yard career punt return average.
* One of only two players in team history (David Palmer) to have 2 career punt return TDs.
* Owns 2 of the 10 longest punt returns in team history with his pair of 71-yard TDs.
* The Vikings are 4-0 in games when Moore runs for 100+ yards.
* Ranks tied with Herschel Walker for 10th place in Vikings history with 4 career 100- yard rushing games.
* Along with Koren Robinson, who had a kickoff return TD at N.Y. Giants (11/13/05), marked only the 2nd time in team history posted a punt return and kickoff return TD in the same game, the other occurring in 1999 at Kansas City when Robert Tate (KOR) and Randy Moss (PR) accomplished the feat.
* Set a Vikings’ record with 610 combined net yards in a 3-game span in 2004 (at Houston, at New Orleans, vs. Tennessee), topping the old mark of 573 set by Chuck Foreman in 1976.
* Joined Onterrio Smith as the only Viking rookies in team history to rush for consecutive 100-yard games (at New Orleans, vs. Tennessee) in 2004.
* Was the 1st RB selected from Tulane by the Vikings since taking Tommy Mason #1 overall in the 1961 inaugural draft, the 1st player ever drafted by the team.

I don't think management is too worried about Willie's leg. It was a break on the non weight-bearing bone. I personally think we needed a much more reliable 3rd down option and some obvious help on special teams, which is where Moore comes in. Maybe he's more of an insurance policy for Dookie McPooperson, aka. Najeh, since he still has some pending legal issues.

So you dont think in the future moore would take over? Or now he would be the number 2?

I honestly think that management realized they can't keep beating the piss out of Willie on most every down, so they needed someone like moore on 3rd downs. I'm excited to see what both of them can do. It's hard to say if Willie will stay around or not. I think the end of last season showed Najeh isn't a long term answer here.

Agreed, but Najeh did have some flashes where he looked great. The rams game...

Along with being a pretty good back up he brings some stabilty to a shaky return game

As I said.. we have 3 pretty damn good backs... Maybe Davenport isnt a " starter" but He is decent on returns and is a decent 3rd down back as well.. By bringing in Moore... I think that Willie will get some much needed rest and those two can bang it on 3rd downs... Bringing in Moore and also Hartwig,, those two alone have made us better already .. Now we just need to draft an OL and a CB and hopefully a WR that can do something and will be looking pretty good I think !
