This right heres what cracks me up about a few on here...No player gives more to the Vikings and Delivers more, yet a "few fans" want to critique one of the best to ever play the game...as if they are some great football mind, its laughable
Jim Brown, Marshall Faulk, Emmit Smith all rave about his abilities but a few on here love to point at their perceived expertize that he falls short...
even after he pukes his guts out to try to get back on the field... Pumps in a IV to get back on the field, bandage him up because hes spewing blood to help this team WIN...and still a few go back and look at replay after replay and say oooo see here he missed this or that. Truly laughable
You say my remark about his improving, but not yet good, blocking is so absurd that it must be a joke.
Then you criticize others (myself included) for supporting what we said... THAT
There is NO other back I would rather have. Period. End of argument.
I say that in skill alone, let alone the heart and character you point out (and I completely agree with).
However, he is not perfect.
[glow=red,2,300]He does not get "100"'s in every Madden category as you seem to feel he should get. [/glow]
That's just life, he's the best there is at what he does, but he's not perfect.
You need to realize that just having things to work on does not mean one is awful at what they do...
He's a guy with 2 years of experience, he shouldn't be the best at everything.
This is the first level in which he has been asked to do anything other than hang on to the ball and run like hell because he was so amazing at it, nobody needed more from him.
He didn't catch many passes or block as much in college because he didn't have to.
Now he needs to learn; he's making progress - and great progress according to the coaches.
My original statement is as much a testament to his progress and work ethic as it is pointing out he isn't perfect...
