Default Why Peterson will be a Texan...

This is if he's there at 8.

Last year we were fed the fact that Mario was drafted to beat the Colts because to beat the Colts you had to get pressure on Manning (Steelers, Chargers of that year). Well this year it was proven with depth at a running game and having a power back and quick back (Jacksonville, Dallas, Tennessee) you can beat the Colts. So If we were to buy the fact that they drafted Mario to beat the Colts, then they better be drafting AP at 8.

That's a fair point. Having an elite RB who can chew up yardage and time, while making the occaisonal big play may be the ideal way to beat Manning. When he isn't on the field, he can't score points. Right now, AP is my number one choice if he falls, which is a possibility. Not sure that it is a high chance he falls, but there is a chance for sure.

If he does fall, yes, grab him.

He won't fall though... just dont see it happening.

That would make one competitive, yet crowded backfield:

Domanick Williams
Ron Dayne
Chris Taylor
Wali Lundy
Adrian Peterson


I just hope we don't reach for Leon Hall...we need a #2 CB....but this guy should be a 2nd round pick, this draft is just thin at corner back.

The Titans are up and coming as well. So what better way to keep Vince off the field with a time consuming smash mouth running offense??

But I doubt he falls.

It all depends on the Browns.
If Joe Thomas OT Wis. is still on the board when they pick then they have a tough decission to make. If they take Thomas at #3 then there is a very good chance that Peterson drops to us, unless there is a trade. All of the teams between us and the Browns have good RB's and are in the market for other positions.

Is there not concern about him being injury prone? Did he miss many games in college?

I dunno, but maybe we already have that player in the person of one Ron Dayne ?
In other words, who needs a stinking elite RB to kick Peyton's butt ? And in the words of one of our most prominent and prolific posters: "backs are a dime a dozen".

Peterson has the big play speed that Dayne doesn't have. Peterson is more of a Marcus Allen type back (running style).

Please tell me you aren't trying to compare Ron Dayne to Adrian Peterson. That's like comparing Ugly Betty to Eva Longoria.

I'm just saying we don't need an elite back to beat the Colts (or beat anybody for that matter), because we beat them this year without one.

Default Re: Why Peterson will be a Texan...

We will never beat them again unless we have 1)a better running game AND 2) a better secondary.

In the little time peyton had the ball, he threw all over us..2..3 touchdowns? The only lost by 3 and we were playing our best and their D just couldn't hold us. again though...with our current situation we will only beat them 1 out of every 10 times. with a better secondary and/or running game we will beat them a lot more. Plus we now have to worry about Tennessee a lot more.. they really are getting a lot better whether we will admit it or not.

I like AP, but they're going to take Michael Bush in the 2nd round. Bank on it!

TY Hottoddie. I've excepted the probablity. But not the potential for desaster. I'll go one broke leg over three season of almost getting to the finish line every time.

That is who I've been comparing him to. I think he has the stride like him and I believe he can do alot from 1 yard out.

wow, thats a low blow...but if Dayne's weight is right, he's a pretty fast guy, but still i would love for AP to drop to 8 and the Texans pick him up. Dayne's probably got a good 3yrs in him, so i say grab AP. It wont hurt the backfeild at all, i think it would be that much more dangerous. But say bye bye to Wli Lundy and Gado if it goes down. Then again, i still cant see Kubes drafting a rb 1st rd.

i just dont understand the reasoning behind not grabbing AP because we have all this RB "talent" already on the roster. if he falls to us, he will probably be the BPA, hence the reason to draft him.

BTW--just because Kubiak hasnt taken a RB in the first doesnt mean he is against doing it. i think the rumored trade up with Chicago last year proves as such. this offense needs a bellcow--i think AP can be that guy.

Man I know what you mean...damn, we had DeAngelo Williams in our hands...but the problem with that is the fact that we wouldn't have Demeco Ryans (or Owen Daniels), because CHI wanted our 2nd round pick and our 4th....well, at the last minute, the Bills sweetened the pot and gave the Bears rd 2 and 3, and Chicago took that and ran, hence the McCargo pick.

Anyway...I could see Peterson being here if Cleveland takes Thomas or Quinn (Quinn is unlikely, but DET could pass on him and take Thomas, remember, the Lions surrendered 63 sacks this past season), so watch for the lions pick. Also watch for the Bucs/Browns coin flip.

Are you serious?? Please get a clue on what you are saying!!! After his workout I really don't see him there at #8 unless the Texans move up somehow.
