    Peterson preaches patience - Trying times for Peterson

    [size=13pt]Trying times for Peterson[/size]

    Vikings star running have trouble against stacked defences

    By DAVE CAMPBELL The Associated Press

    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Adrian Peterson is learning how to be patient.

    The Minnesota Vikings were, in a way, spoiled last season. Not in the standings, where they faltered in the final two weeks and finished 8-8. But in the backfield, where Peterson began all those are-you-kidding highlight-reel runs.....

    This made it past both the author & the editor?

    Vikings running back Adrian Peterson reiterated today that he’s still working on his patience as a runner and said he needs to do a better job in the second half of the season.....

    He's not breaking the big one but he is still very effective, if he stays healthy he should break his rushing and td totasl from a year ago.

    Maybe they were both Canadian.

    It is obvious to me that Peterson has not been quite as successful and devastating as people thought he would be. This began last year in the 49ers game, when the Niners defense stacked the box and Tarvaris could not throw us out of it. Every team after that has stacked the box against us. And it mostly has worked to keep AD from going nuts on them. The Vikings also have been very, very predictable in their playcalling, and have not gotten AD in space, for instance, by throwing the screen. This results in no lanes to run in. Unless the passing game can get us out of the stacked box, this will continue.

    Not often I agree with you StillPurple, but in this case, I very much do.

    AP's production is down from last year..
    but he's still AP.
    Just opposing defenses key on him.
    Their playcalling isn't necessarily taking advantage of this fact, either.
    Look what Ronnie Brown has done for the 'Fins.

    LOL, the 49'ers didn't JUST stack the box, they crashed the corners. Brilliant, brilliant scheme by Nolan. Never seen that before. AND because we have Childress/Bevel there is no play action to counter that. LOL, crash the corners all you want, our HC/OC are gonna run the same plays. You can play 10 in the box, nbd. The upside is Peterson is simply a time bomb, ticking away......he will break his 296 record this year, IMO.

    Our HC and OC are absolutely clueless at times, and underutilizing one of the best backs in the league!

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