Adrian Peterson

22 posts in this topic

How about that Adrian Peterson today? 224 yards at Chicago plus a well needed win! Now all we need is a decent OC and some pass coverage.

The kid's gonna be one of the best backs to ever play the game if he stays healthy.

In the post-game radio interviews, he referred to Peterson as "Chester Taylor's backup". Peterson didn't even get the bulk of the carries. Chili got bailed out by Peterson all game long and he has the gall to call him "Chester Taylor's backup".

He needs to quit returning kicks though. Despite how good he is, you're just asking for him to get injured doing that.

Would you rather see Twilli get blown up and fumble?

AD carried us, fire Chilly...

Definitely get him off the Return game.....I know NO moved Bush to the Return to give their playmaker more chances at the ball.....but I don't understand how any team can put their #1 guy out there at that position.....Reminds me of Tecmo Bowl and putting Woodson returning kicks only to have him injured quickly I might add......

As an NFL fan, I have never seen such a burst of acceleration from a RB when there is a hole in the D. Reminds me of Barry Sanders. If only T-Jax can be more accurate with his passes the opposing D will have their hands full and should leave a WR open downfield.

But he is not thier #1 guy. According to chester the molester (childress) he is just the #2 running back. confused.gif

I think he could have been a decent rb, he just had his head in the olympics instead of football.

Only if he plays for the right team.. If he plays for the Vikings for most of his career then, NOOOOOOOOO! He will NOT be the best back or even close to the best back to ever play the game LOL... Do you really think he can be better than some recent backs such as L Tomilson, P Holmes, and many more solid backs in history, while playing for the MN VIKINGS??

I dont think so!

Remember L. TOmilson broke the td rushing record. Can A Peterson ever do this while with the MN VIKINGS?

What are you talking about??? Who did Barry Sanders play for again? That's right, one of the perenial worst teams in the NFL during his career. Didn't effect him. Tomlinsonmade the Chargers a good team, they were a bad team with him as well. First three years with him they didn't make it over 8 wins, I think twice they finished in the bottom of the division. But LT managed just fine with a terrible team.

Why can't he be good with the Vikes, I think he proved you wrong before you even posted that. He has more yards than LT as well this year.

Yup,

Hate to pile on here but I recall many a year that "Sweetness" ran roughshod over the entire NFL on some of the worst Bear teams in history. Many years they had no quarterback, no recievers of any value and the entire NFL knew the Bears were going to run Payton left, Payton right, Payton up the middle. He did OK, didn't he?

R.I.P. Walter.

I agree. Sir Walter was on some terrible teams, as was Barry Sanders. Just thing how their statistics would look if they had an offensive line that Emmit Smith had his entire career (not counting the 1 year in Phoenix).

I don't know how this could have even been doubted. He was drafted by the Vikings who also have one of (if not) the highest paid(which makes them good?) o-line in the NFL. Barry Sanders pretty much did it all by himself, but AD has an O-line. Seeing what he did in Oklahoma everyone knew he had the talent, health was the question. Coming into the year I thought Chester Taylor was going to be the main man w/ Peterson learning the speed of the NFL. He has far exceded my expectations already. Don't forget Taylor had 1,214 yards last year and the team wasn't good, Peterson obviously can do it w/ the Vikes and once our QB situation is set, play action can make us a multi threat. I can't wait to see what happens when defenses have to play an honest pass defense against us.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.

      Holy... awesome! How big ?

      I'm thinking the opposite could be happening. Some people are doing fairly good and they are not saying anything. Last year a person I know did real good over 1 mile from anyone and called one friend with the coordinates of where to meet him in 2 days. He got back in 2 days and found over 30 wheelhouses right on his coordinates. His one friend that he told had then told another friend who told another friend and on and on. The key to ice fishing URL has always been to stay away from the crowds but now a good report brings in a crowd. Some of the business have decided that fewer fishermen having good fishing could be a better long term plan then many fishermen having poor fishing so they are not reporting good fishing.   Me, I think the fishing this winter is far better then last winter. Most of the people fishing URL now learned to fish URL by going deeper and deeper for the crappies. Before the crappie boom very few fishermen went deeper then 10 feet of water for walleyes. If we got into crappies or perch we knew we were too deep for the best walleye fishing. Most of my fishing this year has been in 8 feet of water or less. But also I'm standing outside and not sitting in a house. On URL you will usually get 4 or 5 times more fish standing outside or in a portable then you will in a house. I think it is from the noise or vibrations. shaky and Doc could set their house in 6 feet of water and do very good but they fished very quietly.  When fishing they had no radio or TV turned on, no generator, stepped softly and talk in whispers,,,,and they caught a lot of fish. I've sat with a camera and watched walleyes spook away when the heating stove ignited, when I dropped a rod on the floor and when I slid a chair across the floor. That is why all of our rental houses had a rubberized floor, to dampen the noise. Every year more and more people are fishing in houses rather then standing outside or in portables and I wonder if that isn't going to change how many fish are caught for each hour of "fishing pressure"/angler hours.  Sure it is nice to sit in a warm house watching TV while fishing but at least on URL I think you will also catch less fish. It will interesting to see if the DNR creel census starts to show a lower catch per hour as the percentage of people fishing from wheelhouses increases.
