    As for Adrian. I love that he does not seem satisfied with anything and he seems like the kind of kid who never will. He goes all out every play and what he has done before does not matter to him. I am truly honored to have someone with this kind of talent, potential, desire and work ethic all rolled into one on the team I pull for on Sundays.
    Don't disagree completely, but there are many places where he would arguably be an upgrade to their #1.
    Look at the NFCN, outside of the real Adrian Peterson, is there another back better than Chester.

    A very nice read my friend.
    Thanks......

    All that despite the fact that he missed two games with a knee injury, and his effectiveness was restricted when he returned in December, due to both the injury and the Vikings' offensive limitations
    I still say that this had alot to do with his production late in the year......
    Props to AD for coming back so fast.

    Peterson was a celebrity counselor Monday at William and Mary's annual summer football camp, courtesy of his and the camp's affiliation with Nike.
    This was all over the news this morning.
    I wish I would have heard about it.
    I would have made a trip up to see him.
    Hell, I was looking for an excuse to leave work early yesterday.
    ;D

    "When I watched the film after the games," he said, "and being able to watch a lot of film in the offseason, I found out it was really me. I was not being patient enough.

    "It's little things like that, that can definitely make a world of difference: being a little more patient; not rushing; getting your steps right; being in sync with the offensive line. It was little details like that, that really made that 8- or 9-man front hard to run against."
    What is this thing "Watching Film" in the offseason he speaks of? I thought they didn't do that.....(sarcasim alert).

    Again, with the timing and beating stacked boxes.
    I still say that the knee hindered some of that a bit as well.

    "As far as the wear and tear on your body and getting hit every play," Peterson said, "it definitely can prolong your career. I like it
    And yet some of us think CT can't share the load with AD and he will want to go someplace. I think CT will be a Vike as long as the FO thinks he warrants a contract.
    That ship is getting closer and closer to sailing on CT.
    His legacy may go down as being a great backup to a couple great running backs.
    I am glad he is here and thinks he makes us better.
    If I were Chester though, I would have a hard time always playing second fiddle when I knew I could be the feautred back on some other team.
    CT's personality may be fine with not being the featured guy, most pro-athletes would have a hard time with this when they felt they could be the #1 guy somewhere else.

    If you win a couple SB's, I guess that helps with the whole legacy issue.
    If it ever comes to that, then I say let him go. When it reaches that point many players aren't a team player anymore and it becomes "all about me".

    I have never said a team gets better by letting a distraction go.

    Ego's do have a way with disrupting a team, when it's no longer about the team.

    Probably not, but I still don't think he would be the full-time starter in Green Bay. Maybe in Detroit or Chicago, but Green Bay will still utilize Ryan Grant for a lot of carries.
