    injury. The teams a head of us did not skip AD because he was injuried. All of the picks made were logical.

    Jamarcus - Needed a QB
    Johnson - Got the WR version of Peterson in the draft
    Thomas - Took the Top OL in the draft ( the Peterson of the Oline)
    Landry - Dominating safter and they already had Portist and Betts.

    ETC
    Comeon, the going in stance by most pundints were that we had CT. No way would they go RB especially one that was projected to miss a considerable amount of his rookie season IF the injury needed to be addressed (ala the plate).

    Lest we forget. :
    Actually Mar I am going to have to complete disagree with you on this one. Almost every single mock draft I read in the last week or so leading into that draft had us taking Adrian Peterson. I remember sitting here saying we could go Quinn ... but it is likely we are taking Peterson.
    Nothing I read had indicated that AD was going to "miss considerable time" due to his current injury. But many pundits said he was "injury prone."
    All that aside ... almost every mock had us going Adrian Peterson at 7 that year or had him off the board before we picked.
    That is just a few I can find two years later.

    Had us picking him

    LOL ... it is really funny to find some of the "pre-combine" drafts from 2007 though that have Dwayne Jarrett going in the top 10.

    Next headline.
    It's not the smoking that has me annoyed.
    It's that he was too fucking stupid to lay off the bong before the most important drug test of his life.
    And now he's already in the NFL's program, so if he fucks up again, it's 4 games.
    I couldn't care less if he wants to get high.

    I had AP as the #1 player in the draft and was amazed he was still on the board. Taking him was the easiest decision in the history of the franchise IMO.

    How much did it cost him? He still got picked in the first round. No real punishment at all.

    Different policies.
    Different circumstances.

    Stop bobbing on Percy's cock long enough to consider the realities of the situation.

    They are not different. Both drugs. The reality is playmakers score TDs. The situation is nothing. He has a clean slate. Until he does something wrong, lay off his ass.

    Pot is covered under the a different NFL policy (substance abuse) than the diuretics (performance-enhancing).

    So, yes, they are different.
    Sometimes, you are really dense.

    He does NOT have a clean slate.
    He failed an official NFL drug test, that puts him in the program.
    Next offense, 4 games.
    He showed his stupidity, arrogance and immaturity by not keeping himself clean for the most important test of his life.

    KWill and Phat Pat were trying to lose weight and were fucked by a company that added an unlisted substance to a drug, illegally.
    That's why that company is now out of business and why a judge issued an injunction.
    Sorry to confuse you with the facts.

    I hope Percy does prove me wrong.
    I hope, uh, that, uh, he isn't as, uh, dumb, uh, as he, uh, appears to be, uh.
