    You are asserting that we won because AD has 20+ carries.

    You cannot confuse causation with correlation.

    We were fighting from a double digit deficit for much of this game.
    We were also going up against a team who is much, much better at defending the run than the pass.
    Considering those two pretty big aspects of the game, it would make sense that we pass more than run.
    Yah, that sure worked out well didn't it... :

    AD was effective in the first half when he got blocking, only a terrible coach would abandon the run being down by 10 points.
    Exactly... Even got within one score

    It is still beyond me why we haven't thrown a screen to Adrian

    All I know is Adrian gets better in the second half and im pretty sure he probably only had like 4 carries in the second half

    Nine carries for thirty six yards in the second half for AP.

    hmm...I hadn't thought about the screen.
    With his cuts and vision, that would be a great play.
    Does that fit into Chill's "system"?
    It should!

    I think we need an Adrian Ratio

    Not catchy enough.

    Adrian Adjusting?

    Peterson Percentage?

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

    43 pass attempts with 0 touchdowns. (Should be 1 I guess, but Berrian might as well be Troy Williamson).

    Anything short of 25 carries for Adrian would be unacceptable at this point.

    It was clear to me last year when Childress wouldn't even put AP in the last play against San Diego to get passed the 300 yard mark. He doesn't care about Adrian at all. Ironically, he is the only person that could save his job at this point...
