    8 9 in the box amazing

    Actually in some ways it helps. With a FB blocking in front of him, as long as he can beat 1 guy at the LOS having 8 in the box leaves only 3 to defend the rest of the field. He stiff arms one and runs past the other 2.

    I would agree with this. It means a few more negative plays, but a few more home runs as well.
    Teams stack the box when they don't respect the pass.
    Chris Johnson 2009-QB Vince Young- 23rd in pass yards
    Jamall Lewis 2003-QB Kyle Boller, Anthony Wright, 32nd in pass yards
    Terrell Davis 1998-QB John Elway, 7th in pass yards
    Barry Sanders 1997-QB Scott Mitchell, 12th in pass yards
    Eric Dickerson 1984-?-27th in pass yards(of 28 teams)
    Oj Simpson 1973- 26th of 26.

    The only one with a good QB was Terrell Davis, and Elway was always a threat to scramble which likely caused defenses to stack the box anyway.

    Look at Petersons ypc compared to our passing game.
    07-5.6ypc-28th passing yards
    08-4.8ypc-25th passing yards
    09-4.4ypc-8th passing yards
    10-4.6ypc-26th passing yards
    11-4.7ypc-28th passing yards
    12-6.3ypc-32nd passing yards

    His 1812yards is already a personal best for Peterson and ranks him 19th in league history even if he doesn't get another yard. It's going to be fun watching him move up the list with every carry.

    Thanks for posting that, I hadn't thought to make that correlation. That is very interesting.

    It does seem the teams that run the ball well make a concentrated effort to do so.

    How many of these top rushers produced a high quality play off win the same year?

    D Sharp on NFLN was emphatic about AP breaking the record.

    It is the only thing that I liked to hear from him all year.

    The one thing we got going for us is that the Packers and the Texans may not want to get beat to crap by AP.

    Lower the BOOM and Let's rock n roll AP.

    The Vikings defense will have to help AP this weekend. The Texams are a running team that could limit the number of carries AP gets if the Vikings defense can't stop the run, or get off the field on third down. Especially if the Texans get a big lead.
    Vikings need to get the lead early and stop the run on defense for AP to get enough carries.
