    The rigors of Spartan life. Leonidas is cast out into the wild, and survives the harsh winter to return to his home, when he is crowned King ....a Viking!

    I will take bets in any amount that AP's effective career is no longer than 8 years.. he may play longer but not at the same level..

    Check the stats on NFL running backs.. especially ones that were used alot in college.. there is validity to the thinking next 5 to 7 years.
    Purple Jesus does not care about stats! He is not human.

    If you look at the averages.. the normal production is 5 to 7 peak years.. I think that is the notion used here..

    With the style of running AP plays with.. I would look at Sims and Jackson's careers as guidelines.. All out all Day..

    He has shown that he can "break" down in college, so if the goal is to win a superbowl with him.. probably prime time is the within 5 to 7...

    With that said.. getting solid play out of the right side of the line, at QB, and TE will be important.. The Defense will lose a major force in Pat Williams sometime in the next couple of years.. plus an upgrade at safety won't hurt..

    Being a Packer fan.. I hope you draft another DE that takes time to develop.
    ;D

    BTW.. the time slot for the draft has been reduced... make sure you get the card in on time this year.
    :P
    Don't worrie, we will be on time.
    You guys should start evaluating your Punter pick right about now..... ;D

    Touché... in the end it probably was for the better you missed the time slot.

    "Overused in college"?

    He had one full freshman year, 339 carries
    Soph year missed 4 games, 220 carries
    Junior year missed 7 games, 188 carries
    Senior year missed all games - with Vikings

    So overall 25 games played in college.
    I can't find a top NFL back with less college time.
