    Adrian Peterson's Phantom Poundage and the Art of Saying Nothing

    [size=13pt]Adrian Peterson's Phantom Poundage and the Art of Saying Nothing[/size]

    Way back in April, when NFL Draft coverage was in full swing and the Minnesota Vikings had precious few headlines to offer, Adrian Peterson gave us something to talk about.

    They sound just legitimate enough to write about—and make no mistake, we'll write about them.
    Some people here need to read this, re-read it, write it down on a piece of paper and tuck it in their pocket for later.

    I watched that with your comment specifically in mind and counted TWO.
    One was Bob Sanders and that wasn't "going for his knees" as much as just trying to cut his legs out from under him.

    The other was in the Lions game and it also didn't look malicious.

    Take off your purple shades and watch it again.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    ...He wasn't going to get to 225. Look at the man. Where are those extra pounds gonna go? Unless he borrows a page from the Pat Williams book of nutrition, he's carrying about as much punishment as his frame will allow...
    Phat Pat should never be disrespected, he should have an honorary doctorate in nutrition.

    I counted 3 in the first few minutes, and didn't watch the rest as I had other stuff I had to do.
    I suppose it didn't continue on for the rest of the game, but the lions game, Bob Sanders and Mathis from behind on the colts.

    I never said they were dirty hits, but just more noting how easy it is for him to blow a knee.

    Bob Sanders didn't go for his knee so much as just go to take his legs out.

    If you watch the Mathis play again, that hit is on the thighs, not the knees (the downfield replay clearly shows that).


    Antoine Winfield makes every tackle he makes like that - to take out the legs.
    That's solid tackling.
