    Vikings and Adrian Peterson

    Ok I'm curious to see what everyone thinks since there is a pretty intense debate in the Ponder thread about what the Vikings should have done with Peterson. What would you do if you were the Vikings front office?

    The thing that's missing is: A. Give him the best damn offensive line possible to run behind!

    Well, the Vikes had one lineman eat himself out of a job.

    Re: Vikings and Adrian Peterson

    This is a serious question? Peterson is the best back in the league and hasn't even got hurt yet. What a beast.

    Re: Vikings and Adrian Peterson

    Ok I'm just glad it isn't just me being a homer or something because I was catching a lot of **** in this thread for saying the Vikings made the right move in re signing him.

    Re: Vikings and Adrian Peterson

    Seeing as I own him in my fantasy league they should amend his contract to state that he must touch the ball 45 times a game.

    Re: Vikings and Adrian Peterson

    A great QB will do wonders for an offense, a great running back will certainly help, but won't win you any kind of super bowl these days.

    the packers had virtually no running game last year

    but that doesn't mean the vikes can trade him for a franchise QB

    Re: Vikings and Adrian Peterson

    Vikes need an O-line and Ponder to develop. Keeping AP is a no brainer...

    Re: Vikings and Adrian Peterson

    I'm kind of surprised Jhill hasn't commented in this thread. He was all over me about how the Vikings should have traded him. He is a Packers fan I guess. Haters gonna hate.
