    Taylor: Peterson's arrival no bother to him

    [size=13pt]Taylor: Peterson's arrival no bother to him[/size]

    In his first public comments since last month's NFL draft, veteran Chester Taylor expressed no concern about the fact the Vikings used the seventh overall selection on fellow running back Adrian Peterson.

    Re: Taylor: Peterson's arrival no bother to him

    Peterson made a good impression on Taylor when the two met for the first time Monday. "He's a nice guy," Taylor said. "He looks up to me as being a vet, and I'm going to help him through all the tough times. Whenever he gets stuck, I'll help him out."

    Said Peterson: "He told me to go out there, compete and just work hard. To help improve yourself and help the team win anyway possible. That's what I plan on doing."
    I guess everything is just fine and dandy as it should be.

    We can all speculate what will happen later in the season, but for now we're good.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    "You don't want to break the carries record," fullback Tony Richardson said. "That's not a record you want. You might want to break the yardage record or touchdowns, but you don't want to (set the record for) carries. You won't last in this league."

    That's why you saw C-Tay tired towards the end of the season last year.

    Re: Taylor: Peterson's arrival no bother to him

    So everything's honk-dorey in Purple-town.
    That's what I'd expect to hear at this time of the year.
    It will be very interesting
    to see how this all turns out.
    Chester had a decent year last year, but Adrian is denstined for greatness.
    It will be interesting to see how this one-two punch can coexist.
    When Peterson begins cutting into Chester's numbers and taking his touchdowns, I wonder what kind of tune he'll be singing ...

    Whiskey lullabye
    She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
    She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
    We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
    But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
    Until the night

    1st Chorus
    He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
    And finally drank away her memory
    Life is short but this time it was bigger
    Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
    We found him with his face down in the pillow
    With a note that said I'll love her till I die
    And when we buried him beneath the willow
    The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

    lalalalalalala
    lalalalalalala

    lalalalalalala
    lalalalalalala

    The rumors flew but nobody know how much she blamed herself
    For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
    She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
    But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind
    Until the night

    2nd Chorus
    She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
    And finally drank away his memory
    Life is short but this time it was bigger
    Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
    We found her with her face down in the pillow
    Clinging to his picture for dear life
    We laid her next to him beneath the willow
    While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby

    lalalalalalala
    lalalalalalala

    lalalalalalala
