    Many people have been quick to criticize the Minnesota Vikings’ play-calling, as they have failed to get the ball in Adrian Peterson’s hands while protecting the lead in the second half of games throughout the first four weeks of the 2011 NFL season.  The Vikings’ running back has previously voiced his displeasure with his lack […]

    That’s right!  Four of the fastest men in the NFL may be spending their lockout season sprinting past the competition, much like they are accustomed to doing while playing football. The Kansas City Chiefs’ Jamaal Charles tweeted this message to the Eagles’ DeSean Jackson, the Titans’ Chris Johnson and the Vikings’ Adrian Peterson.  We’re still […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/28/10 – Adrian Peterson

    Not many people gave the Minnesota Vikings a chance last night as they traveled to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles in the NFL’s first Tuesday game since 1946.  And with a 5-9 record going into the game, and Michael Vick under center for the opposition, it is not hard to see why the Eagles […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/26/10 — Adrian Peterson

    When Brett Favre came out of retirement, again, right before the season started, most people had Minnesota penciled into the NFC Championship game and even the Super Bowl.  Sure, it might take a few weeks for him to get his rhythm since he missed all of camp, but its Brett Favre, right?  Wrong.  He has […]

    Minnesota Gopher Mascot Throws One Vicious Stiff Arm

    If there is one thing we have learned about mascots, it is to never take them lightly.

Assuming Peterson rightly goes number 1, your options for the next 3 picks are Michael Turner, Matt Forte and Maurice Jones-Drew, three very different players.

    Total Pro Sports – Remember that game back on September 17, 2006, when the Adrian Peterson-led Oklahoma Sooners led the Oregon Ducks in the dying moments, only to be robbed by terrible officiating on an onside kick call, which cost them the ball, and the game.  Well Peterson has finally got his revenge.
