    Re: Is there room for two? Vikings' key: Finding roles for both RBs

    I am optimistic that this will work.
    Struggle we will as TJack and the new receivers and AP get acquainted.
    Best case scenario is that the D carries us to a 4-4 opening with the young playmakers jelling in time to have a good second half.
    I think that might be too much for us to ask, however, I DO believe this backfield will succeed, eventually.
    Yes, it could be a train wreck waiting to happen, but, I think the character of the two guys will prevail.
    CT will get the majority of carries, as he should...for awhile.
    We shall see, but I just have a feeling that AP is going to have huge affect on us fans.
    Having dreaded the prospect of my beloved 'Huskers getting shredded by this kid, I am very happy he's a Vike.
    Interestingly enough, so is he...this will work; for awhile.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    Chester Taylor is probably the happiest guy on the team.
    Taylor was a workhorse last year and he paid for it.
    He got beat up towards the end of the season and even missed gametime.


    The age of the old school single runningback workhorse is over.
    The age of the Two Headed monster is upon us.

    If it worked for the Saints, Bores, Colts and others, it should work for us too!

    true, but reggie bush had unreal talent.
    not only could he line up as a rb, he was a legitimate threat as a wideout.
    i could be wrong, but i don't think AP will be a scary threat lined up at wr the way reggie can be.

    This doesn't seem like a problem to me.
    Basically, whoever is on their game, gets the ball. Week by week. Play by play.

    My only question is;
    Is Childress smart enough to manage this.




    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Only ONE way to find out...and AP IS taller than RB...that's gotta count for something out there in the passing lanes.
