    I heard that just last night AD raised $2M for cancer research by jumping from the top of the IDS tower to the top of the Foshay tower while talking to his mom on his cell phone.
    He doesn't get as much hype as he deserves.
    HAHAHAHA

    That was great.

    Makes ya wonder why we put up with them.
    Wonder what would happen if we all refused to read/buy thier drivel for just one month........
    Christ, Marty - he's right.
    Calling Purple Jesus the best back in the league is ludicrous after 7 games.

    Yes, Peterson is leading the league in rushing despite splitting carries with veteran Chester Taylor...
    So Peterson, who is splitting carries, is leading the league in rushing with 740 yards.
    Yet LT, who is NOT splitting carries and has 123 less yards is better because of his last season stats?
    What about Peterson's NFL leading 933 yards from scrimmage? or his NFL leading 1257 total all purpose yards?
    The only stat LT leads AD in is touchdowns - LT has 7, AP has 6.

    LT is an amazing back, but Peterson has earned all of the hype surrounding him.
    Don't short change him.

    While the press (particularly Seifert and Souhan) can really rile me, I find myself needing to stand up for them in the face of the onslaught of paranoia that follows anything negative written about the Vikes.

    Well, maybe if Childress used him with a little imagination he would be bar far the best RB in the league.
    Let's see -- 1st down run Peterson off right tackle.
    2nd down run Peterson off left tackle
    3rd down take Peterson out because he can't block, and try a 4 yard dump pass when we have six to go for a first down.
    PUNT

    Next series
    Peterson returns kickoff and has to come out for first play because he is tired from running back kickoff. One of our terrible QB's tried to throw 30 yard downfield pass to one of our terrible receivers who can't get open.
    2nd down -- Peterson runs off right tackle.
    3rd down dump pass
    PUNT

    The Vikings are so predictable! If Peterson is in he runs. Defenders stack 8 or 9 in the box and stop him. Linebacker shadows him.
    If Peterson is out defenders put in pass defense and receivers can't get open.

    I get so sick and tired of this play-calling I could puke. Peterson got one pass thrown to him for a completion this year. Result was 70+ TD run. "Opps, we better not call that play ever again," says Childress.

    Using Peterson as a decoy and then throwing a screen pass to him. Oh no, that would be unconventional. "We can't do that," says Childress.

    "I know," says Childress, "Let's have Peterson run back kickoffs so he can injure himself. That will teach him and he won't reach any of his incentives. I'll save the Vikes thousands of $ that they can give me in a raise."

    etc., etc., etc.,

    Finally, some sense has come to people on Adrian...
    SHUT UP.
    Golden boy with tarnish.
    Flash in the pan getting dimmer.

    One thing i can't understand with peope on this site is the unfounded disdain for Favre.
    Did you not see the game last night??
    He is one of the greatest QB"s to ever play the game playing right in front of us.
    No one with more heart or grit.
    How can such a likable guy with a great family be the target of pitiful attacks from you guys??


    For fans of the game, i just don't understand how greatness can be shunned like this.
    Jealously surely has limits.

    As soon as I read "flash in the pan" I knew that this post was going to be based in sheer stupidity.

    Get over yourself...Green G.ay has got to be the most overrated one-loss team in the NFL.

    AND if you think that Peterson is a "flash in the pan" then you are even MORE of a MORON than the rest of the Puker fans!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
