    OTOH maybe they could have asked for his schedule and tried to schedule around the OTA's. There are plenty of weekends where they could have had this celebration without interfering with his work. just saying....

    AP tried to help with the date but fumbled the calender while on the phone making arrangements, after recovering the calender and picking up the phone (dropped when reaching for calender) the month had flipped and he thought he was free on that weekend.

    Classic. Now all he needs to do is switch to a 14 pound smartphone with windows outlook mobile and he will be set.

    He's picking that up on Sept 9th at 8:30 PM...in Minnesota...

    Hope that doesn't conflict with anything important...

    Re:Peterson Wants Favre/Taking fumbles seriously

    Pretty fair article on AD IMO, that I haven't seen posted yet.

    Pressure Point: Peterson must hold on

    But the focus of this piece is on Adrian Peterson. And the reason is simple. He is a remarkable player. In my opinion, he is the best running back in the league and will be remembered as an all-time great when he finally hangs up his cleats.

    So why is Peterson under the microscope? First and foremost, the fumbles simply need to stop occurring at such a high rate and at inopportune times. With the number of touches he will always command and his rugged running style, some turnovers have to be expected. Plus, Peterson does run somewhat upright and doesn't curl himself around the football like some other runners.


    With AD, expectations will be and should be higher than the rest.

    Lastly, I will be the first to admit that Minnesota's offensive line is vastly overrated in the run-blocking department and clearly the Vikings became more of a passing offense last season than at any point of Peterson's young career, but I want more production overall from this superstar. I know that sounds somewhat ridiculous considering that Peterson ran for close to 1,400 yards, added another 436 as a receiver and got into the end zone 18 times last year. But I hold this young man to a higher standard than any back in the league today -- including Chris Johnson. I just believe Peterson is capable of more.
