    Re: Is Peterson not playing well because richardson is gone?

    He obviously misses Richardson a little, but outside of the fumbles (as Timmy said) Peterson's numbers really are not that bad.
    He is on pace for 1500 yards, 8 TDs and 8 100+ yard games. He has not broken out yet like we would hope, but he has been good. He is still third in the league in rushing and averaging 4.4 yards a carry.
    Now, we all know he can be spectacular, which he really has not been, but he has played well. Again, minus the ball control issues, which he also had last season.

    Re: Tapeh had surgery in Frebruary but didn't disclose it to the Vikings!

    I was unaware of this.
    What a joke!
    I blame both Tapeh and the organization for not doing there research.
    Unacceptable.

    Well, there's one reason we haven't seen him. But if he's really healthy, he's got to be better than Tahi...and keeping him out is hurting the team. Is this the solution we want?

    Tapeh didn't disclose that he's a post-op.

    Re: Tapeh had surgery in Frebruary but didn't disclose it to the Vikings!

    Here is my take on why he isn't doing "as well"

    The teams agendas are "stop peterson!!!!!" when you have the whole team focusing on you it is nearly impossible to do as well as he did during his rookie season. Look at Moss's Rookie year vs. Second year... big difference in performance. Yet it is easier to be a receiver in that way because they can't put 9 guys against you... He isn't worse, the defenses are focusing only on him. just my 2 cents

    This is an odd situation to say the least, but like VikingMike said, if he's healthy he should be playing.
    News flash: Tahi is not good.
    If Childress is keeping him inactive while he is healthy, he is doing the team no favors.
    If he is gonna punish him, then do it and be over it.


    Bottom line is we need better play out of our FB position.
    FFS put the Sauce back there if you are not gonna play Tapeh (which is stoopid if he is healthy), because Tahi is suckin'.

    Put Sauce in there, split TE play between Shaincoe and Mills (mostly Mills).
