    Vikings running back Adrian Peterson said Thursday that he prefers to be in the backfield without a fullback, but different plays call for different personnel. See what Peterson had to say about that and becoming more patient as a runner

    Looks like the T-rich crowd won't like to read this one.
    Also........

    He also said his offensive line has been doing a good job all season long and that he can get better at helping the men up front.

    “Sometimes I put those guys in bad positions. I’m not giving them the best chance to get to their block. … It all falls back on me. I’ve got to do a better job,” he said.
    ........A certain Soooner fan won't like that quote either I suspect as he has been in my ass lately for even thinking negative thoughts about his boy.

    ;D
    (JK my friend.
    Couldn't resist).
    ;D
    Like I said before last year almost all of his big runs were in a single back set.

    Re: Peterson prefers to run alone

    as far as FB, no FB..and really sometimes they motion a TE in to be a FB...

    Last year, an announcer noticed that every single time AD was 5? yards deep it was a pass, and every time he was 7 yards deep it was a run. Has anyone noticed that trend? In that game, the announcer was DEAD on, I was amazed an announcer came up with something that good.

    I think their best call would be to do both, so the other teams DC and D has to somewhat guess whether its a run or a pass. Just a thought, lol, that and play action could really help. I do NOT see that coming though. I mean, why play action on a pass with AD in the backfield? *cough* wow, I love Chilly/Bevel.
