    I saw this article online and I don't know how they can expect much more out of this guy! I guess the one thing would be to take better care of the ball, but we should be thankful for what he's done!
    aside from the fumbling.. he needs to be more consistent on a down to down basis... those runs of 2, 1, 4, -2, 2, 3, 50 are ridiculous... we see that entirely too often... while chester will put up a consistent 4, 5, 3, 5, 4, 8, etc...

    i think he's more effective when they are splitting carries like in year 1... not having chester be the 3rd down back... i'm not a fan of it at all...

    aside from that learn how to freakin pass block and we'll be in good shape!

    Of course he does.
    If you've ever heard the kid talk, if you've ever seen him pound on the ground or sulk off the field even after a great performance, you shouldn't even have to make a statement like that.

    AD is his own toughest critic.
    Well, him and his father.

    I find it amazing that people think a player has no room for improvement or that a guy like me won't hack on him cause he is a superstar.

    Long story short, I hold no punches.
    Even if the "Great AD" is messing up I am gonna lay it out there.
    Course, I guess I could turn a blinds eye to fumbles, missed blocks, late/early cuts etc etc.
    (More sarcasim.)
    ;D

    LEARN TO HANG ON TO THE BALL!!!
    I'm more concerned about his pass blocking & pass catching abilities.
    i like to see how many drops ad had last eason
    I don't remember any. Maybe 1.

    Re: Coach expects more from Peterson in '09

    Want either less fumbles or better pass protection

    Both would be a plus

    I would probably prefer pass protection.. So we can use Chester more then just 3rd down and AP can be out in more then 1st and 2nd

    I couldn't agree more.

    Most of the fumbles are just because of his fighting for the extra yardage, that's when he gets stood up and takes additional hits, and in the NFL guys are definitely going for the ball in that situation.
