    Once Adrian's sophmore season gets rolling, and he once again is amongst the league leaders in rushing, perhaps then the critics will put a sock in it. I look for a more balanced attack next year, with Adrian averaging about 120yrds per game. He wants a 2000 yrd season, but may have around 1,920 yards. 8)

    The only criticisms I've heard is that he isn't durable, which I'm not convinced of yet.

    Sure he can! just ask that fella that was trying to convince everyone here that the 'Vikes were well known for their "excellent pass blocking." Also, evryone knows when the 'Vikes are gonna pass. Just ask that bloated ex- raven/sideline reporter.

    He can't pass block for pooh either.

    Has he even really had a chance to improve though?
    I didn't see him even get the chance to really pass block all that much, I would rather see AP taking passes than pass blocking anyways.

    somewhere I am sure there is a stat about how many times he was supposed to pass block. But yeah i agree I would rather see him doing that as well.

    "The Timberwolves are a horseshit organization, but at least their ticket prices are way too expensive." Sorry. I have unresolved issues with that one.

    Two things.

    1. I haven't heard to many critics.
    What is everyone talking about?

    2. All (at least most of them) rookie RB's struggle the first year with pass blocking.
    This will not be an issue next year.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
