    Re: Harvin is the only Viking deserving of Pro Bowl

    Realistically Henderson is just as deserving as Greenway

    Ok. Maybe Greenway too. But otherwise, heck no. And that includes AP.
    We're bringing purple back.

    What three running backs in the NFC do you think are better than Peterson. I can't think of a single one who is even close. Michael Turner maybe?
    Frank Gore has quite a few receptions I guess. Both have more touches for less yards and less touchdowns with more fumbles than Peterson though. So who is #3?

    Edit: Steven Jackson would be number three in AD-doesn't-deserve-to-make-the-pro-bowl-land. Although again, more touches, lower yards per rush, lower yards per catch, less receiving yards, less rushing yards, less touchdowns, etc.

    AP deserves to be there this year. He is right up there for the lead in yardage and he has cut back dramatically with his fumbles. He's even laid a couple of people out this year blocking but that still needs a lot of work.

    Anyway, he has his best year as a pro as far as I'm concerned. At least as being an all around back. He deserves to make it this year.

    FYI, an "all around" back is a RB that can block well also. Not one that can just catch & run well.

    I think out of everyone on PPO I know that since I am usually the one harping against AP and taking the heat for it because I don't believe he is the best all around back in the NFL.

    But my actual point was that this was his best year as a pro as far as being that all around back. Why? Because he's not fumbling as much, he's running with a purpose, he's catching well out of the backfield (even though he has had a few drops) and blocking better. He still needs a lot of work in the blocking department but he's doing better than he has in previous years. Hence, my statement that this is his best year as an all around back.

    Was I the only one yesterday who was thrown off by the Chris Kluwe/Chris Cooley stuff on the broadcast?

    Kluwe does deserve the NFC Punter nod, BTW.

    Re: Harvin is the only Viking deserving of Pro Bowl

    Ad will make it. I would love to see Winfield get back there, but that is unlikely. You know Hutch will make it by name alone. After last years debacle no way Big Mac makes it. We may only get two in, unless some people really start to tear things up.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    No love for Kluwe. That's just wrong.
