    Are Peterson & Taylor the new Maroney & Dillon

    [size=13pt]32 Questions: Minnesota Vikings[/size]

    Are Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor the new Laurence Maroney and Corey Dillon?

    There are some things that just go together, and last year, Laurence Maroney and Corey Dillon were one of them. Er, two of them?...

    Interesting, especially since Chili is the next Belichick!

    I think there is a better chance that Chili is the next Les Steckel.
    Maybe even the next Les Nessman.

    Seriously, he states that Peterson is significantly better than Maroney was coming out of college.
    I believe that Maroney was pretty darn good coming out of the U.
    That must mean AD is awesome.
    I can't wait to see him in action.

    Talking about AP, the writer says,
    he'll score the short touchdowns.
    I thought that why we had Moore?

    Well if he becomes a Les Steckel, Bud will have to come out of retirement again.
    I saw him on Vike Weekly he looked in pretty good condition as an octogenarian.
    But since Chili has already done what Steckel couldn't we might have a few more years to see how good his Belichick impersonation can get.

    Who's Les Nessman?

    A character on the tv show WKRP in Cincinnati.
    He was the news reporter.
    In one episode he dropped live turkeys out of helicopter on Thanksgiving Day,
    It ran late 70's early 80's.
    It was funny, I do think they have DVD's out.
    See if you can rent one some night and check it out.
    Lona Anderson was the secretary.

    Loni, not Lona. I think it's still on TV as reruns, perhaps on TVLand.

    Plus you have a top tier full back in Tony Richardson in the backfield. I am not sure how they are going to get all these backs the ball. MM will probably play slot reciver and they will likely have some 3 back sets(TR, CT, AD). They won't be Moroney and Dillion because they don't have Tom Brady.

    I wouldn't expect too much out of Richardson as far as carries go.
    He is mainly there as a blocker.
