    Will Vikings waste Peterson's greatness?

    [size=13pt]Will Vikings waste A.P.'s greatness?[/size]


    By Mike Florio, Sporting News

    With Vikings rookie running back Adrian Peterson splashing onto the NFL scene like teammate Pat Williams doing a cannonball into a kiddie pool, the real question moving forward for Peterson and the Vikings is whether he is going to be a great player on a winning team. Or whether he is going to be the next Barry Sanders, who could run like no other but never really won?...

    I think I would rather be compared to Barry Sanders than most of the RBs who have a super bowl ring...

    The nay-sayers will be stood down.
    The "Cashier" (as Merrill Hoge calls him) will ring the bell for a long time.
    He just said AD is the #2 RB and that he will be #1 as soon as the Vikes have a QB that can take some pressure off of him.


    The premise is absurd...Barry Sanders will forever be remembered for his accomplishments on the field; if AD stays healthy, he may too make an everlasting mark.
    He's certainly off to a great start.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    We will build a team around him, and to be honest, by the end of this year everybody will see that we are not that far from being a championship caliber team. We just bolster a couple positions and keep improving every week we can still go 9-7 this year and crush hopes of others as this season progresses. Let's start at Dallas. Beat the plowboi's.

    We are just a WR and a few more games under the belt for Jackson to be a playoff team.
    I think the thing that is starting to make it happen for us is that the O line seems to finally be getting the complicated blocking assignments down.
    Also Chester Taylor is in a position to start having some big days with all the attention on AP.
    If we score early we can beat the cowboys.
