    Hahahahaha

    We have the best backfield in the league, I'd hate to see Peterson risk further injury... but watching him play is just too much fun. I've very torn right now...

    We've had an up and down season (more downs then ups) but a win against the Giants would give us a shot at a WC.
    To make the playoffs we need to finish 9 and 7 and probably have beaten the Lions and Giants.
    You are right in that the upcoming game against the Giants has huge playoff implications.
    But if AD is not 100% healthy, I don't want him in there.

    Not 99.999%.
    100%.

    Here is keeping our fingers crossed.
    What ever, even at 70% he is the best player on the field. Let the medical staff make the decisions. If the plan is that for AD's career he will only play when he is 100% he will not play much. Guys play hurt all the time, AD should be no different.

    Excellent point.
    By week 12 you may find a few kickers that are 100% if you're lucky.
    Noone is 100% as CT found out Sunday.
    Give an excellent back that ball who's only carried the rock a limited amount of times this year against week 11 defenses, and this is what you get.

    Get AD out there and have him earn his paycheck just like everyone else.

    Re: Peterson, eager to return, will run underwater today

    You both show the lack of understanding on what he tore.

    His LCL is a stabalizor of the knee. It helps prevent the tearing of all the other ligaments of all other ligaments in the knee. He paartially tore it. A 2+ = borderline 3.

    This isn't turf toe we are talking about or a pulled hammie. This is his knee. You tear your ACla nd your explosive ness is gone for 2 years if not forever. Ask Edgrinne James and a hose of othe rbacks that never came back.

    I'll let the medical and coaching staff make the decisions, my point is that you can't wait for a guy to be 100%, because it will never happen. If the ligaments are not healed and he is at increased risk of an ACL injury then of course he should not play.

    So far all of the medical doctors say this injury takes 6-8 weeks to heal. Additional this is compounded with the fact that he is going to be takign a pounding 6-8 hours a day, making cuts 4-5 days a week. If this tear isn't completely healed he is going to possible tear a PCL, MCL or ACL. That will reduce his speed and explosiveness.

    Why chance it?
    We have a back running for
    168 yards on 20 carries.
    Do you want to see AD run like he does for 4 more games or 7 more years?
    Rest the kid and let CT do his thing.

    The coaches don't give a fluck. They know they might be gone so they don't care about his long term risk
