    Thanks for the read my friend.

    I've said it alot on here, but it is worth highlighting again.



    Backs have been beating 8 man fronts for years when teams didn't have a passing game. It isn't like they just invented it halfway through the season last year.
    Truth of the matter is that by teaching him to recognize what the defense is doing it will help him in the long run when it comes to running against them.

    I really am looking forward to watching this kid run this year.
    He is gonna out do AD of last year by a significant mark.

    IMO it's not so much Peterson recognizing the defense as it is preventing the defense from knowing what's coming.

    Last year if Peterson was in we weren't passing. They knew if he was in the game he was most likely getting the ball and are just going to have LBs fill gaps and the secondary will essentially put pass protection as a second priority.

    If Taylor was in the game they were expecting the pass, which is how he broke those big runs.


    With the maturation of Tarvaris Jackson and Peterson's improved blocking ability there's no reason AD shouldn't make even 8 man fronts look like high school teams.

    Disagree that runners beat 8-man fronts. Are you kidding me ? Runners break off big runs when the defense is trying to take the pass away.

    And the big passes come when the defense is trying to take the run away.

    SP must have never seen a Chargers game. LT faces them every game. Taylor has also run against them & with better success.

    I have watched my share of Charger games in which the defense totally took L.T. out of the game by stacking the box.

    Or a Lions game when Barry was playing.

    You must watch a lot of Chargers games because LT doesn't get shut down very often.
    You don't rush for 2000 yards a season by getting shut down several times a year.

    Did you see the games last year (before the knee injury) when they tried to take AD out and he still had success?

    Comeon my friend, it isn't like they just came up with this defense because of AD.
    RB's have been facing/and beating 8 man fronts all the time.

    Heck, go back and read the article again.
    You will see verbiage in there no how its done.

    Will a better passing game help, of course (football 101) but a better job of recognizing what is coming so he can set up his blockers will help just as much (Football 202).

    He has never rushed for over 2000 yds in the NFL, he racked up 40 yds on the ground against the Vikings last year.

    but Barry was a freak of nature, and no runner may ever be compared to him when it comes to avoiding tackles.
