He's having another good day, this time against the SD defense. 26 carries 205 yards 2 TDs.

*Doh* He fumbles with 10:00 to go in the 4th quarter. SD recovers.

wow.

what a player! first time I've had the pleasure to watch him and the Vikings, and it's pretty easy to see why he's being heralded as the best RB in the league right now...even with LT on the same field.

legitimate question...is he the best back in the league? I know he has to do it for more than half a season, but right now, he's the best back in the league in my eyes. GO AP!

Well it will continue to need to be fixed because now it's 28 carries 258 yards 3 TDs.

Chester Taylor just ran one in too.

Him and Chester Taylor are the best 1-2 punch in the league when it comes to yards. Look it up.

Gotta think these two will stay together.

Does this mean Mewelde Moore could be available at the end of the year?

I was hoping he would get to 300 yards rushing, but 296 RuYd, 3 RuTD (1,64,46), 19 ReYd, isn't that bad I guess.

Nobody else likes the idea of getting Mewelde Moore in the offseason?

With Chester Taylor AND All Day Adrian Peterson they won't keep Moore and offer him new money will they?


Oh yea, McFadden is awesome, a great prospect, just as AD AP, but hey we probably won't have a chance at him. We can't be thinking about trading up for him. We have limited picks as is and we need every single one of them. We will have to let him go to a team that picks above us like we had to do with AP.

Ole Miss Texan
11-04-2007, 06:39 PM
If Minnesota wanted to trade with us last draft we could have given them Amobi Okoye and Jacoby Jones for an Adrian Peterson trade. (it would have been our 1st and 3rd for their #7).

As far as McFadden goes...he's an incredible prospect and should be the #1 on the Texans board but I see absolutely no reason to trade up for him. I see us having a pick around 10 again and Jonathan Stewart should be there. Trading up to get McFadden would probably cost us our 2008 + 2009 1st round picks...if not more. I'd rather "reach" for Stewart.


Adrian Peterson is absolutely a beast. I can't get over how good he has looked. He looks like a seasoned vet. I would still say Ladanian is the best RB in the league but Peterson is #2. If we were offered to have any RB in the league, I'd take LT first, then I'd take AP, then I'd have to think about the others.

This is regardless of best right now or building for our future (ie Run for the SuperBowl for next season vs. building a franchise). Peterson is a stud for both situations and beats out the likes of Gore/Johnson/Alexander/Brown etc.

Vikings got a steal at 7. I still find it funny that Jamarcus Russell is nowhere near ready to be the Raiders signal caller.

Mr teX
11-04-2007, 06:53 PM
LT is still that dude, but AD is fast becoming a man among boys. @ this rate he could make a serious run @ 2K.


Note to RB: " this is what a once in a decade back looks like son."

nunusguy
11-04-2007, 07:02 PM
Like most, I figured AD would be a pretty good NFL running back, but did not realize he was the kind of prospect that many people said Reggie Bush would become. As it turns out, Bush is pretty good but AD is the stuff of greatness !
He's on an entirely different level and if we had passed on AD in the Draft, I would truly be sick from that miscalulation.
Barring injury, he will surely be one of the NFLs all time greats in his specialty.

The college game is totally different from the NFL game.

Anyway, go to NFL.com/videos and watch the Adrian Peterson highlights. They have a 4:40 thread dedicated to Adrian. At the end of the video when they announced that he had broken the NFL record, it looked like he hadn't even started sweating yet.

This guy is something else! Phew!

Best single game rookie performance I have ever seen. Probably the best back to enter the NFL since Barry. The guy is a total freak and to be doing this without the benefit of a passing game and against 7 and 8 man fronts is just insane and off the charts. If they can match him up with a decent QB in Minny they could really become a dominant offense.

This is how Earl came into the league. Campbell was rookie of the year, NFL rushing champion and NFL MVP in 1978. I don't think Peterson can get MVP because of Tom Brady, but his year will likely end up even more impressive than Earl's was statistically.

I'd definitley take the loss to the Browns and get Adrian Peterson...however how would that effect the Schaub trade? We'd be sitting at either the 5th or 6th overall pick (atlanta had the 10th) I don't know if we get a trade done or if we just swap 1sts, give them a 2007 4th and our 2008 2nd...I don't know. The deal may not even get done, but I'm sure somehow it would.

However, I would want the Browns to beat us fair and square. If we would have intentionally lost the game to get a higher pick, I'd stop watching the Texans and wouldn't be a fan anymore.

Here's my question: when do we start seeing the hype about how those other
6 teams picking before the Vikes blew it in this years college Draft ?

You do realize we were tanking games on purpose back in 2005 to get Bush right? Its amazing how Brown suddenly became a clutch kicker

Losing to the Browns would have been a better football move than beating them, so yeah, I'm in favor of losing if it helps the team for years to come.

Ginn is getting better and better every game in every aspect of his play. blaming the 0-8 record on anyone in this draft class is idiotic, since they're either A) playing well or B) not playing at all. blame Jason Allen, last year's first rounder, who's horrendous and probably won't be on the roster this time next year.

While I think Ginn was selected too soon and probably a reach, it doesn't change the fact that the guy's a playmaker.

Need I remind y'all that he had like a 50 yard kick off return that was really close to going all the way against us AND while he had 1 reception during the game it was a big play (35+) that almost went the distance too. Of course he was an integral part of the -9 yd loss that ended Trent Green's season.
