    Teammates want to keep 'All Day' fresh for all season

    [size=13pt]Teammates want to keep 'All Day' fresh for all season[/size]

    The Vikings have quickly found out why Adrian Peterson long ago earned the nickname "All Day." In three games, the rookie running back has a team-leading 271 rushing yards on 64 carries and also has caught eight passes for 160 yards.

    Almost 50% of the offensive plays went to AP....higher percentage than the Randy ratio.

    Yeah...don't burn him out, Chilly...only use him when we need him MOST...like at the end of the game instead of sitting him!!!

    "The Vikings worked out linebacker William Kershaw on Monday. Kershaw, who played collegiately at Maryland, was waived by Kansas City on Sept. 18."


    A day late and a dollar short, eh?

    I guess we don't cheat like SOME OTHER TEAM...regardless of our need for wins.
    I guess that there is STILL some integrity in the NFL...just not in the Northeast!

    Randy won alot of games for us, and Peterson will too, eventually.

    "It's not that we don't think he can't pass block, because he had a great pickup on one of their blitzes earlier in that football game," he said. "It's just a matter of the volume of everything and people that have looked at it more. Mewelde has looked at the pass protections more. They stood a chance to be giving you an exotic blitz there toward the end. I want a guy that has seen it more times than Adrian."
    AD laid that guy out on that blitz.
    It was awesome!
