Default Okoye or Peterson?

If the Vikings offered Peterson for Okoye right now,should the Texans do it?

This is just hypothetical and I'm bored and just having fun, so don't start with "that's not realistic, the Vikings don't need a DL". I'm just asking on the Texans side of things. I'm not armachair quarterbacking or being silly, just having some fun.

As much as I think that a good defensive lineman are hard to find, I would do it becasue I think AD is just something special. Amobi will probably be a solid, maybe even a great player for years to come but Adrian is the real deal.

Mods, if you can move this thread to the "NFL". I started it as a "going back to the draft" discussion.

I really don't know how Peterson would run behind our line, so I would say no.

I don't think Okoye could be having a much better season at this point, unless we somehow played him against Winston Justice every game.

If we assume that they both get into the HoF, which one do you take? I think most fans would take the RB, but I think most coaches would take the DT.

As much as I love Peterson, I don't think I would do it. Running backs are important, but are significantly exposed to injury with the pounding they take which is why most seem to fade after 30. DT's can be dominant for years and are a priority for top defenses. Okoye is definately showing that he will be a force in the interior that offenses WILL have to account for.

nope, not to me, and that's the only opinion that matters. Peterson is clearly a better prospect than Bush, but the hype overshadowed the facts.

Only as per the media.

You'd be surprised how many of our knowledgeable members called RB a slot receiver before he ever saw an NFL snap.

AD has proven more in 4 games than Reggie has with a full season under his belt. AD will likely have more rushing yards in his first 6 starts than Bush did all of the 06 season. He is the real deal and I think we are only seeing the floor right now.

Peterson is a full-grown man and a full-grown NFL running back. They are still trying to figure out what Bush is ?

for his career, Bush has 645 yards rushing. Peterson has 383. he's going to get Bush by midseason.

I know.

I was one of those knowledgeable members.

Just pointing out that any Hall of Fame talk about a rookie is overstating things.

well i was saying Hall of Fame for Peterson before he was drafted, becuase there haven't been too many guys to come out of college with his abilities. best RB prospect since Barry Sanders.

I'd take Amobi, mainly because I think that Peterson's career will be cut short by injury.

It is WAY TOO EARLY to even mention HOF to any player not even through his first quarter in the league, and even talk of it is a disrespect for those in it now. HOF is greatness over time, not a few good games at the start of a career.
Now I get what you are saying, but 4 games in the season to even know how good a player either can and will be is premature. Until there is at least a year or 2 under thier belts, any HOF talk is nuts..
But I would take Okoye...

i said he has HOF potential, which means his abilities are extremely rare and you don't see them very often.
