I am concerned about AP despite last years outcome. If AP gets a march, that bolsters Favre (ˈfɑrv).

you really can't compare last year. there was no passing game. AP was all they had really. Favre, Rice, and Harvin have opened it up. AP has hit a lul not because of him but because the Vikes have fell in love with Farve and the passing game.

I'd look for them to run hard early to try and set us up for lots of play sctions and swings to Chestor Taylor.

But wouldnt you agree our D is better this yr?..we have a history of shutting down big name backs..its the unknowns that gauge us

I wouldn't call Jackson, Turner, Williams, and other "unknowns" exactly. I respect the heck out of Peterson. The guy is a phenominal talent and a truckload to tackle.

Honestly we are a better D yes, but not better at the run. Every team that committed to running, ran all over us. And most did not have top backs like AP. We masked that by getting ahead offensively and putting teams in must pass situations. The cards are not a running team. there line can't run-block like a MIA or DAL. MIN will be a lot like DAL. They will power run enough to open up the pass game. Will Smith was dead on when he said we have to stop the run early, then get to Farve.

I agree to an extent..Having a healthy Sed ellis..Scott Fujita..Scott Shanle..and not to mention are secondary thats healthy coming up in run support I think makes us a lot better against the run..Arizona was running the ball good..other than Hightowers freak first play we shut them down..

In the media he is..but not on the field this year..he is too afraid of fumbling..

For the record. There's enough talent on the field for our guys to shut down AP. They just have play very smart come Sunday. Make proper reads and for the love of God, TACKLE!!! AP takes hits and keeps it moving. Gotta wrap that guy up.
