So, the elephant in the room: Peterson
 
So AP. Under whelming so far to be sure.

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 don't know, depending on your girlfriend there's a way to utilize the extra appendage. ��

Wow, OK. So all of your observations are worthy of press releases. I'm sorry my post wasn't....what?

True he may not have the explosion he once did, but the ability is still there. I thought last week he looked like he was finally beginning to find himself within this offense. There's also something to be said for the coaches needing to learn and understand how to utilize this 3 headed monster we've got at RB, and it seemed like maybe they're starting to get that figured out too. Still a whole lotta season left to play and I think his role will start to expand a bit. And if history repeats itself there may be some games where we're gonna need him to step in and be the starter. Don't give up on the old guy yet, there's still some gas left.

Hasnt been really given a chance to succeed.1 carry here one carry there isnt the way to use the guy. Sean doesnt run the ball often enough for any back to succeed to be honest. His style of runninf is done with screen passes.

We could have a third d*** too. Do we more girl friends with more nipples?
