    Re: Childress sticks up for AD in AD vs.LT debate

    LT is just jealous.
    I guess I would be also when a rookie runs for 296 against your team.


    The way the article is worded is what I find Funny.
    LT WAS the best back in the league but not anymore, actually LT better be worried about his own job since you see Sproles come in on third down alot for LT.

    What part is delusional?
    The part where he speaks about how the Vikings have to take AD off the field on 3rd downs?
    How he's not yet there on his route running?

    LOL.


    Hey, I think AD is the best RB in the league.
    But LT is correct in his observations.


    =Z=
    IMHO the part were he doesn't recognize he hasn't stayed healthy, his team uses the franchise tag on Sproles because they are concerned about his health and declining numbers, and he's spouting off about someone else.
    If your not healthy you ain't doin nothin, like in the playoffs against Pittsburgh.

    Re: Childress sticks up for AD in AD vs.LT debate

    When healthy, LT is a better back.
    Doesn't cough the ball up as much, better hands out of the backfield, blocks better, etc.
    He's right about that.

    The difference is that AD is already a better runner than LT2 ever was (which most people, even Vikes fans, don't appreciate...because Tomlinson was AMAZING) and is still a baby.
    He'll learn to pass block and catch out of the backfield.

    Personally, I think Tomlinson is an amazing, great player and a better all around back right now.


    Still, Peterson is a once in a franchise kind of back.
    He has the record for most yards in a game and he's still a baby.
    It's amazing.

    Re: Childress sticks up for AD in AD vs.LT debate

    As of today single game record is held by a certain player in purple....he can set more every time he steps on the field, He is hands down the best RB in the NFL, others might be more complete backs....but if we are talking Runningback hes the man...if your talking blocking back not so much, receiving back would like to see more....it is great to see his coach have his back
    LT looks pathetic in this situation, really thought he was better than this :'(

    Seriously? Really? You are really trying to say that LT wasn't the main focus of all defenses for most of his career...huh...I like AD as much as anyone, and think he is the best RB right now, but to think LT was a product of a team or system is simply laughable.

    When AD stops fumbling, and becomes a threat in the passing game, then he will be a better back then LT in his prime. Until then...well....

    Today, tomorrow, next week, next year.....you have 1 spot on your team to start a RB if you have anyone in the HISTORY of the NFL to select LT included

    Ill take AD, pretty sure Zygi and Bradley would too....the best thing for them he was had at a bargain

    Jim Brown and Emmit Smith would take AD also now thats sayin somethin

    Agreed. LT has been the man for SD seems like forever I mean even with Gates there it seems like he has always had the target on his back.
    But as far as PURE runners AD has it, LT may be one of the most complete in history tho.
    IMHO
    Thanks for the sig Pack93z

    Is Peterson really Nr. 1 ?

    Ok, I hope you all take this the right way. Don't get me wrong, I love Adrian Peterson. He is the "Man" ! He went to Oklahama, having grown up in Texas and wanting to go to Texas and then be a Cowboy
    :P, because his dad was in prison in Oklahoma, and the only games they showed on TV in Oklahoma prison were OU games, so "All Day" went to OU. I have a ton of respect for that. I love the guy...

    ... and yet...

    Some lingering questions:
    a. Can you be the nr. 1 running back in the NFL, if you sit on 3rd down, and who block well and catch very well
    ?
    b. If you can't catch or block well, can you be nr. 1 ?

    Is Peterson better than backs like Jones-Drew and Tomlinson and Forte, who are in on 3rd down ?

    Please don't kill me for posting this. If you prove I am wrong, I will gladly admit it...
