    A.P or C.T. when the game is on the line?

    Before I am ostersized into PPO hell for even mentioning this, I will say that A.P. is the most talented R/B in the league if what you need is a score. He has the ability to take it to the house from anywhere on the field but...... if we are in a situation like the one we were in today, late in the game with the lead and all you want is positve yards, 1st downs and holding onto the ball, who would you rather have in the game, Peterson or Taylor? While I love Peterson's ability and desire to gain the extra yard, in this situation I think Taylor is the better choice. I am now ready to be mocked and ridiculed.

    Exactly What I was gonna bring up. Peterson is clutch, he juust has his best games against the Bears and the worst games against the Lions. Thats 5 fumbles in two games now right?

    How many fumbles did peterson lose today?

    0.

    When taylor is in they dont put 8 or 9 in the box, when AP is in they only concentrate on him running.

    If AP was on the cowboys, giants, or teams with an amazing qb, then hed been a easy 2,000 yard rusher.

    you can't argue how many fumbles he lost, that stat is pure luck.
    We were lucky that ball bounced out of bounds, and we were lucky that he jumped on the bad handoff.
    I forget the third one, but we were lucky then too.
    It coud just as easilly be recovered by the other team

    Anyone who says Chester is truly out of their mind. Chester is a nice player. At best a 1200 yard back who would never sniff the Pro Bowl.
    Adrian is an elite all-time type runner. There is only one choice here. By the way ... for all of Adrian's "fumble" problems ... Chester has also had fumbling issues since joining the Vikes. They both absolutely put the ball on the turf WAY too often.

    To be honest, when I am watching the game on TV I can't tell when Taylor is running the ball instead of Peterson. Although I have to give a slight edge to Peterson I think Chester is just as capable a running back and would definitely be a number one back on any team. Let's not forget that 95 yard run for a TD against Seattle last year. I am just glad that we have them both to back each other up.

    not really, because I can make an argument that its lucky that he lost the ball, one way or another if the game is on the line, running backs usually dont get the ball.
