    Re: Trading Peterson Best Move for Vikings' Long-Term

    Hate to bring this up but the only way trading him would make sense is if it was a Herschel Walker type deal.

    We basically gave Dallas their Super Bowls.

    Go thru any draft and you find a shit load of 1st rounders at all positions that tank. receiving two first rounders for Peterson, isn't enough in my book. Bad teams loose/ trade skill players young in their careers....good teams get rid of them once they are no longer an assets. I don't see Peterson slowing down for another 6 years. He isn't an average back and shouldn't be held to the average back time frame. Anyone that would trade LT four years into his career is just as stupid. You would be killing your franchise. These are players you build around while you have them. Once they are lost, their void is felt for years.
    Bingo.

    Nope, its a point worth bringing into the discussion.

    I'm just not sure that teams, as a whole, aren't a bit smarter these days. Even Jerry Jones backed off from the "Buy a Winner" mentality and has really just approached this season in somewhat of the same manner the Steelers seem to have always used.

    Bingo.
    We lost two top 10 talents already this season. What happens if we cant resign Greenway or Peterson this year? The FO is really fucking up. These players should have been given the proverbial carrot on a stick years ago. Sign Peterson for 60 million for 8 years 2 years ago.
    You don't wait for them to start smelling the open market. Look what philly does. They sign their talented players to extensions in the 2nd and 3rd years of their rookie contact and to 6 years extensions. They get to keep their talented players for all of their prime for peanuts. We however, decide that battling other teams and allowing the price to be driven up... is the way to go.

    Preach on my brother from another mother......

    Truth is, that is almost the norm with most teams and what the Vikes were doing up until just recently.....

    Not sure what has changed. Perhaps the Ownership group don't have as deep of pockets as most think. Wasn't long ago we were hearing about Zygi going out to them for more money.

    Sid Rice? A top-10 talent? No, I don't think so.

    Who was the other? Ray Edwards? That's laughable.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Regardless of who was throwing him the ball, Rice made some fantastic catches, showing body control that is hard to find which was also why he was the number 2 ranked WR FA on the market this year.

    Edwards also was top 5 in pressures and even though he didn't have the sack totals most like, he was pretty damn good against the run making him the number 2 DE in the FA market this year.

    Would they fall in your top 10? Sounds as if they wouldn't, but laughable? Comeon Z. I wouldn't go that far.

    Re: Trading Peterson Best Move for Vikings' Long-Term

    This is the most retarded thread on the Internet. Any Vikings fan willing to trade away Adrian Peterson should be forcefully removed from the fan base. I hate the person who put that stupid suggestion in my head.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Re: Trading Peterson Best Move for Vikings' Long-Term

    One of the top 3 RBs in the league does NOT deserve the same contrat as one of the top 3 WRs in the league. RBs breakdown much faster. Adrian takes more abuse than just about any other runner. He's tougher than most runners, so he's got that going for him...but I don't anticipate Adrian playing at a peak level for 10 seasons.
