    Would you trade Adrian Peterson for...

    Minnesota alum Laurence Maroney?

    I thought this would be an interesting topic.

    Me and a friend were debating this. He said he would trade AD because he's had too many injuries in his college career and because Maroney has better experience playing on turf in the dome.

    I thought it would be a bad choice because Maroney was a much lower draft pick and is a fraction of what AD can do from an all around stand point, plus Maroney played on a much better team last year.

    Just for reference, here's Maroney's 2006 stat line.

    Just a tip, polls with 5,6,7,8+ options do not do well.

    four options, pick the best answer is usually the best.

    How could someone justify saying Maroney doesn't have what it takes?
    I think its generally agreed that AD has more potential but anyone who has watched Maroney knows that he has the makings of an elite NFL back.

    this is the dumbest thing i have ever seen posted in my life. I would much rather have Adrian Peterson then Maroney....talk about injuries Maroney has just as much if not more

    I like Maroney, but I would not trade Peterson for him.

    I can pretty much guarantee by the end of the day there will be something that dwarfs this as far is dumb posts.
