    A thrid down back is basically your change of pace back
    Are you for real?



    What I said is there's really no need for a change of pace or any of the rest of that.

    If Peterson simply stays in--the Defense has to be prepared for anything.....and you've got your best back in place.

    As I said, he just has to improve his blocking skills.

    So when is that going to happen? He should have that down by now. Makes me wonder if he will ever be a good blocker. I doubt it.

    He should be teachable.

    He's strong as an ox.

    The concept is not complex.

    I don't see why it should be a huge problem for him to master this part of the game.

    Maybe they'll start to teach it to him now that he seems to have learned to hold on to the football.

    Well, it's really quite simple. Where's Chester Taylor. You never know what you had until it's gone. Who's decision was it to let him go? Take a guess.

    Why not give Albert Young a shot at it. He has Great Hands and made a living Catching the Football out of the Backfield at Iowa. He has Better Hands than Toby. I don't know if he has been Hurt or just inactive most of the year.

    I thought he looked pretty good running with it last weekend even though it was in mop up duties.

    Truth of the matter is, I thought he would be a good option this year as well but the staff obviously doesn't like something about him as they drafted Toby.

    What I wouldn't give to have a duo like KC's Jones and Charles. Now there are two guys who complement each other amazingly well.
    You mean Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor... oh... wait...
