I hope AD is playing this week because he wants to be around his friends on the team and use it as a distraction...and not because he feels like has to for anybody else's sake.Skol Vikings! Go Cubs!

“Tragic” situation for AD
It's horrific, whatever AD wants to do now is the correct decision, I really feel for him.

I'm sickened by this news. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in the Peterson family.
No parent should ever have to bury their child. As mentioned already, if AD does decide to play Sunday I hope it's for himself and the healing process. In no way should he feel he's letting anyone down or "needs" to play. What he's dealing with is one of the toughest things any person can go through.
May that little boy rest in peace and comfort as he moves on towards a better place much too soon.

Thoughts and prayers for AD and the Mom of this innocent little boy. RIP young man.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

Adrian won't say that. He's too good of a person. He's one of the very few athletes that I admire and respect as a person, not just an athlete.
But I can say it.
What I can't do is speak about what i'd like to DO to the Boyfriend. It's almost as if even speaking about would somehow tarnish Adrian and his family...and they don't deserve that.
This is an unspeakable wrong. I literally cannot fathom what I would do if it were my child. I cannot imagine how Adrian must feel.
But I hope that he knows that we all grieve with him.

My daughter is 2 1/2 and i can not even imagin what i would do to a person that even used a forceful shove let alone beat her to death..
my thoughts and sympathies to the peterson family.. and my hopes and courage to AP that he contineues to do the right thing.. and stays away from the temptation of doing the wrong one.. i'm not sure i'd be able to resist..
as far as AP playing and being around the team. i'm sure it's the best place for him at this moment. help him focus on something else.. something other then the pain and frustration that i'm sure are building up.
