Saints see “same old” Adrian Peterson

Fullback John Kuhn saw a lot of Adrian Peterson while Kuhn was with the Packers watching Peterson run against the Green Bay defense as a member of the Vikings.

The two players are now part of the same backfield in New Orleans, something Kuhn said on Thursday that he dreamed about while standing on the opposite sideline. Kuhn also said that Peterson looks like that player despite the passage of time and accumulation of injuries over the years.

“He looks the same way he looked when I was watching him from the other sideline for all those years,” Kuhn said, via ESPN.com. “He looks like the same old AP, and I’m just excited to see him in the same team colors.”

One difference from the “same old AP” in Thursday’s practice was the way he factored into the offense as a receiver, something he didn’t do much in Minnesota. Coach Sean Payton said he looked comfortable and was “on top of the protections,” which are important traits for Peterson to have if he’s going to play a lot in an offense with Drew Brees at quarterback.

Championship?

Said Pope Benedict: "WOW ... that ring is bigger than mine!!!"

If so I hope that there's no drama with MI. I can't stand drama​ like that. If there's so much as a dirty look from one of them, ESPN will blow the story up and make it a huge distraction.

Two future HOF on the field at the same time?! Now add in a shifty Kamara into the fold. This could be scary for opposing defenses.

Bring it.

AP and Ingram in the backfield in a split-formation, Kamara in the slot and Thomas and Coleman/Snead on the flanks. How do you protect against that. There will be a hole somewhere to exploit.
