Disclaimers (in advance) : Not enough carries. Used in obvious running situations. Virtually no preseason time to get in rhythm. Not given space (DL/LB on him on as he gets the ball), what else, poor run support by the O-line (kind of the same thing as the last excuse/reason, right?)

Observations: He seems as strong as ever. He is fiery, and he wants to contribute. That being said he doesn't seem to have that 5th gear, that speed burst that made him the monster that he was. OK, you can say our O-line isn't doing our running game any favors, and maybe not....but Ingram and Kamara seem to be able to find running lanes... yet AP has not.

I'm reminded of a joke a Cowboy friend of mine had of a running back (I forget which, it was years ago) but if we need 3 yards we can count on our RB. If we need 4 yards we can count on our RB for 3 yds. That's what I feel about AP. I hope I am wrong.
Anyone have any other thoughts?
I think John Madden said it about a back called Walt Garrison.Not sure though.

Re: So, the elephant in the room: Peterson

He is better than Hightower as a rotational back I believe. He will find his groove and Ingram will probably miss some time with an injury. We have got to stop forcing the ball to any RB except Ingram. Feed him the ball and we can win games.

What you should worry about is if you're in a room with an elephant and his d*** is at an angle, then you have problems!😮

I'm safe because I only hang out with the females.

Re: So, the elephant in the room: Peterson

Barring an injury to Ingram or Kamara will AP finish the season with the Saints?

I feel like the Saints will attempt to trade him for some defensive line help if the opportunity arises, with a team like the Giants.

misread + overreaction = BLW (blocked like Will)
