    Done.

    Next some yahoos will be wanting AP, the NFL's leading rusher, to be traded for some exotic package of something that will have them humping the watermelon in mom's fridge.

    You know, cause all smart teams trade their superfreak RBs.
    i was thinking the same exact thing.... no question ad should be in

    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.
    First ... that run was TWO years ago. And if he is a No. 1 RB on ANY team then how come he has only be the No. 1 running back on a team ONCE in his entire 7 year career?
    He is a good running back ... would probably be the number one guy on a handful of teams ... but no more than that. He would not be the No. 1 guy in Miami, Buffalo, S.D., K.C., Baltimore, Tennessee, Indy, Houston, Jacksonville, NY. Gi., Dallas, Washington, Philadelphia, S.F., St.L, Chi., Carolina or Atlanta. And of the others, a few of them he would split time at best.
    He would start hands down on a few teams in the league. He is a solid spell guy or No. 2 ... Chester cannot, nor has he ever ... carried an offense over the course of a season.
    I definitely love having him here ... but he is not EVEN CLOSE to All Day's level ... not even close. Take your purple blinders off and desire to say we have two of the best backs in the league because all you have to do is ask people who are not Vikes' fans and thus have somewhat objective opinions. Chester is a great No. 2 ... Adrian is the man.
    because he was backing up one of the best runningbacks in the league at the time.
    came here for a chance to start, did well, then we got another one of the best runningbacks in the league to push him down the depth chart.

    If I were to count the teams, he could start on 17 teams in the league, those being: NE, NYJ, BAL, CIN, CLE, PIT, HOU, DEN, OAK, DET, GB, NO, TB, ARI, STL, SF, SEA.
    No one's saying he's as good as AD, because that is just a retarded statement.
    AD is a top RB in the league.


    Chester cannot, nor has he ever ... carried an offense over the course of a season.
    except for two years ago, when he had over 300 carries with TJ at QB.

    you won't know how good Chester is unless you watch the vikings.

    Do you ever notice that the announcers always praice Chester during hte games, saying how good he is and how he could start on lots of teams.
    Its the exact same as Michael Turner.
    he sat behind the best RB in the league, even though he is very capable of starting (top 5 in rush yards i do believe)

    when he started for us, he had the 9th best rushing yards in the league, which tells me he was the 9th best runningback in the league.
    Lol ... you are blinded my friend if you think he would start above Slaton, Bush, Gore or Jackson ... the others he would definitely be in the mix, but at best would split carries in G.B., T.B. and Balt.
    He started TWO years ago and is two years older now. He also did not "carry" the offense as you stated. And definitely not with TJ (who only started two games that year).
    Our offense was atrocious that season ... so I would say noone carried the offense.
    He was very good that year ... but still nowhere NEAR an elite back. Look ... noone is arguing that he is not a capable back ... or even a good back ... but this thread is titled A.P. vs. C.T. game on the line ... that is NO CONTEST.
    By the way ... even if 9th in rushing yards meant he was the 9th best in the league ... that still means he is not even in the top 25% of the league. Like I said capable ... but nothing special. Absolutely GREAT to have to spell AD and pass block (since AD struggles there).

    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
    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.
    how is it lucky that you lose the ball?
    if you tuck the ball away well enough, you don't fumble, its that simple.
    Its physics not luck.
    You can't rip the ball away when your holding it with both hands (if your doing it like your supposed to)
    Its a combination of what side of the body you keep the ball on when getting hit, how strong you are, and how concentrated you are on ball security.
    Its not luck that Peterson has fumbled 7 times, it is 100% to do with his running style and ball protection.

    A couple other things about your love of Chester's mediocre at best 2006 season. He was 20th in rushing TDs ... you take the yards ... I will take the scores. And of the 23 1,000-yard rushers that season ... 17 had a better average per carry than Chester. Again ... solid ... but nothing special.

    I think there are times when AD knows he is not getting another yard where he needs to go down.

    1.
    Increases chance for injury
    2.
    Increases chance for fumble

    might it have something to do with our offense as a whole sucking?

    exactly. everyone is just sooooo hyped because adrian can run. but he cant block as well and he cant catch as well as chester.

    and you were right on the dot with the ravens part. How on earth do you expect to start with jamal lewis (who was amazing at the time) on the same roster?! its like impossible.

    so how is this thread even in existance. all the AP jock riders will automaticly go AP since he can run.

    but if he is as great as everyone says he is. dont get me wrong though. he is a great back. but he cant do everything. thats why you use chester to catch and block. which AP can not do

    Could be ... but all we have is numbers ... and the numbers just are not there for Chester's career to consider him as anything other than a good back who could start for a handful of teams. I mean his best season is basically as good as Michael Bennet's bet season ... and I don't think many would argue he should have been starting places.
