    Adrian Peterson - Less than 20 carries in 3 of 4. (My Theory)

    As you can see, Adrian Peterson has had less than 20 carries in 3 out of 4 games played. Coincidence that we have only won one game? I don't think so. In the game that AP did have 20 carries or more, he had 160 yards. I think the solution to a lot of problems is (to quote Keyshawn Johnson) "Give him the damn ball!". He is the only player on this team that is capable of getting us a "W" at the end of the game. Gus had 43 pass attempts today (With 0 touchdowns). Just give AP the ball 25-30 times a game, and watch him do his thing. We will score a lot more points, and I guarantee we will win more games. We are weak at QB, and our WRs can't catch the ball, so lets throw the ball 43 times and give our star running back only 18 carries? I just don't get it. We have a superstar, so lets keep him blocking and coming out on a 3rd and 1? Still don't get it. Zygi, get someone to give him the ball when he needs to get the ball, or find someone who will. Period. Sorry for the rant, but it is just so obvious. Am I wrong? Or is our coaching staff the dumbest in the NFL?

    I have an idea
    building off of it.
    It's called the Peterson Percentage. We will make sure that at least 40% of our plays go to AD.
    And make sure we tell everyone about our super special plan.

    A perfect example is Larry Johnson the last two weeks. He is (or was) considered a star. He stopped getting carries, and he was forgotten. Look at the last two weeks. At Atlanta, he gets 24 carries. Gets 121 yards, and a touchdown. Today, he got 28 carries. He had 198 yards and 2 touchdowns. This isn't rocket science folks. Just watch what happens if Adrian Peterson gets 28 carries...

    We're scrapping the "Randy Ratio" in favor of the "Adrian Ratio"...sweet!

    I love how its the same game plan every play with Adrian

    And he HAS to use his god given ability every single play

    He dpoesn't get any lanes anymore and its the same play so he has to bounce it outside or totally reverse field to get anything

    Might as well bring back Tice... At least he tried to get the ball to our best player and got us to the playoffs.
