    AD wants more catches for Vikings in '13

    Adrian Peterson wants more catches for Vikings in '13

    Now Adrian Peterson is just getting greedy.

    After letting reporters know Wednesday that he was pretty much 100 percent healthy four months after hernia surgery, the running back said he wants to be a bigger part of the Vikings' pass attack.

    Well, he would be perfect for those -5 yard passes that Ponder throws then.

    Maybe we should take him out and teach him the art of picking night crawlers. It might help him catch a few more passes.

    I wish being part of the passing attack for him also meant stopping a few more blitz's that make it into the backfield but if that doesn't happen I guess a short toss to him away from a blitz is probably the best way to use him if he's not effectively blocking.

    Well, us running the WCO would make a little more sense if our RB was more involved in the passing game.

    Well he's pretty good at laying out defenders in the open field when he has the ball, so perhaps if they told him blitzers were trying to tackle him he would be better at it.

    Peterson wants more catches?

    2500 yards and more catches.

    In the WCO, short passes replace some runs. How does he expect to do both without his red underwear and cape?

    2500 All Purpose yards would be good.

    Does that include returning punts & kicks which he also has said he wanted to do?

    I guess that would be up to the coaches to decide but my guess is Patterson will beat him out of at least one of those spots.

    I think AP can be a big part of what Harvin was doing...add in some Wright, Patterson and a touch of Webb, and that short-game/slot role is covered pretty damn well. Now, here's to hoping we see some more connections on routes that are over 10 yards to the 2 outside guys, Jennings and Simpson!!! And, some mid-deep seam routes with the Rudolf!
