    Re:Adrian Peterson's Running Style not helping?

    After the two fumbles and ho hum performance againts the Bears, I would have bet my left nut he'd have gone for 200 against the Cards. :huh:
    I've been a Viking fan since I was just out of diapers, hopefully we get Super Bowl win before I go back in 'em.

    First of all, I would have him with the RB coach at all times practicing his technique on holding onto the football. How to protect the football in traffic, how to hold it close to the chest.

    Second, I would like to see Both Taylor and Peterson in the back field at times. I would love to see a quick pitch to Peterson to one side and using his speed to outrun the linebackers.

    Re:Adrian Peterson's Running Style not helping?

    There is very little wrong with AD. Bigger issues are coaching (too many edge runs, not enough carries), the OL (they have played well over the entire season though), and the FB (might as well sub him out and use two TE sets).

    Speaking of two TE sets, they have all but disappeared, this could definitely lead to an drop in production, for any RB.

    I think the big problem is that we are so obsessed with making sure that we have an effective passing game (this is understandable given the last few years) that we forget what is necessary to make the running game work. The offense is no longer centered around AD but it needs to be.
