    I think we are developing that sort of line, our shiny new guard fixes the last real "hole" we had if he works out, and IF the OL we have buys back into the team. Last year they just quit, giving up on Ponder, and then Cassel after him when it was clear the coaches had no faith IN Cassel.

    I expect our veterans will play back to form for Cassel, and Bridgewater if Teddy shows the abilities that someone like Russel Wilson showed for the Seahawks his first year.

    I know, there are a lot of "ifs" in all those points, but most of them are not as far fetched as it seems, in my opinion.

    More folks saying Adrian on the decline and will be gone soon. I don't think he's on the decline yet and I hope he stays a Viking.

    That statement is comical!! Just a year ago he recovered from ACL surgery and almost broke the single season rushing record and everyone was saying he was a machine. He hasn't declined in one year from a beast to a kitten, it just helps sell papers or a guy's article.

    Farve was "on the decline" the last 5 years of his career. It's an argument that you will eventually win every time, and it sells papers/gets the net traffic these idiots are looking for.

    Every year at the start of the season from now on, someone WILL state AP is on his way down, until AP is actually on his way down. As Vader said best, "It is inevitable."

    Well, technically Peterson is on his way down if you look at his Year/Year stats...

    Not saying he is ACTUALLY on the decline, just saying his stats would support that argument.

    Technically then Dickerson was on the decline since his second year in the league. If you set a record (Or come very close) obviously it is going to be tough to get that many yards again.

    This is a good point that is not made often enough.

    EVERY single player in EVERY single sport has a year that is their best year. All years prior to that and all years after that are going to be the "rise" and the "decline" ... but these writers are acting like Adrian Peterson is just some run-of-the-mill back ... which he is still FAR from.

    Will he go for 2,097 again? Probably not. Would I be shocked if he did? Absolutely not. Would I be shocked if he has five more really good years? Nope. That is who All Day is. He is going to have a few more very good years for us.

    I have avoided this thread. Count all the cookies you want. Peterson should get payed. Just like JA got his full contract. Maybe not being fiscally responsible but being honest.
    Go ahead back up your to close away.
