    Re: Adrian Peterson's Injury: NOT ACL

    To add to what I said, the coaches always say they would like AD to hold back, I think for this reason, they might want to hold him back.
    Just a thought!

    to be completly honest i don't see this season sturning around and us making a play off run.

    some hard teams coming up..and we show a lack of cinsistancy that it would take to win them all.

    but i'll nvr give up hope!! this goes hand in hand with how i see AP.

    I hope for him to return this year.. and continue to dominate like he can!

    but it it means having him for 5 years beatup and not at potential.. then i'd sacrafice his rookie year and bring him back so we get 5 years of his dominant potential!!

    and after those 5.. another 5!!

    Very well said.
    I say he returns after the Giants game.
    Whatever happens, he has all offseason to finish healing that knee.
    He needs to be back in.
    I'll say he has more to lose NOT to come back this season...
    rookie of the year (250k), 1300 yards (2.5mil), Pro bowl ($?).
    Endorsements deals, rookie rushing record.
    He comes back and he will quell all the injury, fluke noise that will no doubt start.
    The media will make you a hero one day, then deal you the A-hole soon after.
    They love the fall as much as the hype.

    Coach Childress needs AD on the field, Wilf needs AD on the field, Minnesota needs AD on the field, and the NFL needs AD on the field.
    Let him play.

    No he doesn't, no he doesn't, no we don't, no they don't.


    He needs to be 100% in 2008, when the Vikings might actually have something for which to play.
    At this point, they don't.

    [size=13pt]No sense for Vikings to risk Peterson's future[/size]

    Owner may have to step in to stop rookie, coach from making huge mistake

    Even if Adrian Peterson’s injured knee heals quickly enough so he misses only Sunday’s game against Oakland, the Minnesota Vikings had better think twice about playing their star rookie running back again this season.....

    What a hack.
    Hell he is only a contributor and not really a reporter.
    ;D

    Doesn't he know that the owner doesn't have a say, hell no one has a say for that matter.
    The Chiller is just up there running around like a little Hitler and making all the decisions.

    Seriously though, you can tell this guy doesn't have a clue.

    I wonder what the rest of the team, especially the vets like Birk, Hutch, McKinnie, EJ, K-will, Phat Pat, think about having a rookie sit out just because he is more important to the team than they are.

    What an ass.
    To think that the staff would make a decision to sit a guy just because hacks like this try to say that one man is more important than the team.
    Talk about loosing a team......

    Damn.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Hopefully, they would understand the folly of bringing him back before he's 100% since that is THE FRANCHISE right there, me boy-o.

    Not sure if this has been posted yet....

    Looks like the Packers may have put "bounties" on taking on Peterson.

    League looking into report of Packers players' 'bounty' offers

    By CHRIS JENKINS, AP Sports Writer
    November 19, 2007


    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- NFL officials are investigating whether Green Bay Packers players offered payments to teammates for achieving specific defensive goals.

    League rules prohibit teams and players "from offering or accepting bonuses to a player for his or his team's performance against a particular team, a particular opposing player or players, or a particular group of an opposing team."


    League spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed the investigation Monday.

    ESPN reported that Packers defensive backs offered to pay the team's defensive linemen $500 each if there were able to hold Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson under 100 yards rushing two weeks ago, and another $500 for holding Carolina to under 60 yards rushing as a team on Sunday.

    Peterson was held to 45 yards rushing before he left the Vikings' Nov. 11 loss to the Packers with an injury. But the Panthers rushed for 131 yards in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

    Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday morning he was not aware of the situation, but had not yet spoken to general manager Ted Thompson.

    "I have no knowledge of that," McCarthy said. "I have not been made aware of that. I haven't talked to Ted today, so if it's something that happened this morning, we have not spoken."

    Packers players were not available to the media on Monday after their 31-17 victory over Carolina.
    Skol!
    Go Vikings!

    I am sure they would.
    Hopefully the head coach also understands the folly of continuing to leave him on the bench even after he is 100%...
