    Peterson's success is so intertwined with a successful passing game they are like Simese twins.
    Last year the passing game sucked and AD still went wild. AD and Chestor will be very effective whether or not the pass game is more effective. If the passing game is effective AD will get 2000 yards.

    He did until the other teams realized that the passing game sucked and then when they loaded up the box his effectiveness was about over.

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    I don't think Peterson will struggle unless he's injured, granted defenses expect him what there not used to dealing with is a better Tarvris Jackson with guys like Sidney Rice and Bernard Berrian to pass too.

    I don't get to exited about Peterson though because he hasn't exactly shown to be the most durable back, but I do get exited thinking about our Oline and what there capable of. Hicks and Chester can do a fine job for us.
    I don't get this idea that peterson isn't durable. He was hit in the knees and got injured, that would have happened to anybody if they were hit that exact same way. Injuries happen its part of the game.

    I think AD will break the record for most rushing yards in a game with 300+

    He would have had over 300 in the chargers game if he didn't get horse collared.

    Maybe I should have said reliable, Peterson hasn't been healthy for a full season since his freshman year in college. Great Running Backs know how to stay healthy, wether Peterson could have avoided that hit or not will never be decided. I think a year with the team and two offseason's to further strength'n his body will help him. I'm just being honest with reality in my assesment, I think Peterson is one of the most talented RB's if not the most to ever play the game, but at the same time he runs very reckless.

    I won't bank on Petersons health untill he starts proving it, in the mean time I don't worry about it because we have great backs that can get the job done.
