  1. He doesn't particularly catch the ball well, he doesn't run clean routes at all ... but he has skills once you can get the ball in his hands. This is pretty much the book on him since he was drafted. Nothing has really changed. The Vikings do not have a qb nor an OC capable of figuring out how to use Patterson. People on this site seem to overreact quickly to a single touchdown scored.
  2. Here is some comedy for you ... ESPN is posting a hypothetical trade that "makes sense for both teams" where the Packers send Jordy Nelson, Jon Franklin, and next years 2nd round pick for Larry Fitzgerald. What a terrible and completely unrealistic trade.
  3. he had a 4+ YPC for most of the period where the game was close. He had a few negative runs in the first couple drives and was less effective (although still converted first downs) when the game was out of hand and the Packers pounded the ball to kill clock. if you watched the game and took any negatives about Lacy out of it, I think you were watching the wrong game. He isn't fast, but he isn't slow either. Somewhere comfortably between AP and Knowshon He is also a smart runner, who cuts very well, and has the swivel you like to see in a back. For a big back, while he runs with power, he really isn't just a brute back ... he creatively finds his holes and when there is someone in his way, he becomes a brute back.
  4. Joe Gibbs second run really hurts him IMO. He she little ability to adapt to the modern game and really showed that he was stuck in the era he had already coached. He was the best during that era but I think was BB has changed in the coaching game is that coaches and teams are best when malleable (fit your system to the players you currently have available on the field and not vice versa.) Don't force square pegs into round holes when you can just change your board to fit your pegs.If BB isn't the best coach ever, he definitely is in the top 5.
  5. He has a 2-0 record against Indy in the playoffs ... last time I checked they were pretty good and had a pretty good QB.Phil Rivers gets a bad rap because of the way he presents himself on the field. Some of the ire is warranted but the guy has amazing talent and plays well against quality defenses.
  6. Yes although one thing that will come up if he continues on the way he does is that he will end up not being well liked by those outside of the SD area. He does have a lot of brat moments. Funny though, it doesn't seem like the team cares that he sometimes loses his cool.
  7. I won my FF championship with Thigpen so hopefully so.the similarities are kinda shocking. he will run for some yardage, he will throw for a lot of yardage because they will almost always be down, he will probably throw a couple picks and make a few boneheaded plays but as long as you don't get to heavily penalized ... those can be absorbed.
  8. Joe Webb, your #115 WR and no rank as a QB. No thoughts on him as a guy to stash in Minny? Favre can't play forever and Jackson is a free agent. Maybe at least a small blurb about Chilly's manlove for TJ?webb is light years from becoming a consistent thrower. Also, bchilly has proven that QB cultivation is not the strong suit it was supposed to be.
  9. but hey .... didn't he once lead the league in poise?
  10. I am a dynasty owner so I was happy to see some production. However he does not seem to have a good burst and will not rip too many long runs.
  11. There is a much smaller difference between 4.45 and 4.55 than between 4.45 and track speed. VJax doesn't have track speed. He has great speed for a 6'5" guy. Please show me clips of VJax outrunning corners on fly routes.As I just posted, Jackson ran a 4.38 at his combine. And at that combine, he weighed 241... now he is listed at 230. I think there is a decent chance that he is faster today than he was at that combine. And he had a 39" vertical at that combine. I assume both Jackson's 40 and vertical are much better than Irvin's... then consider he's taller and stronger/bigger on top of that.And, finally, while not necessarily a great measure of intelligence, Jackson scored a 33 on the Wonderlic. I don't know what Irvin scored, but I've never thought of him as a particularly bright guy.I believe people overreact to the Moss comparison mostly because Jackson took more time to develop then Moss did. As if the fact that Moss hit the ground running and hasn't stopped means that Jackson is not on his physical level and production level. Moss coming out the way he did was a rarity for his position but people should not let that blind them to players who have similar abilities.
  12. I see the complete opposite. People think Minnesota's line is good because it's good in Madden, but they have been a below average run blocking unit this year.Also, Tennessee runs tons of screens to get Johnson out in open space, Minnesota almost never runs them. Watch Chris Johnson highlights. On every big play when he gets the ball he's got 6 yards around him in all directions with no defenders. Peterson has yet to get the ball in that situation all year. It's remarkable that Peterson is putting up a 5.1ypc behind that line. Chester Taylor is averaging 2.6ypc behind the same line. Not true. Hopefully Week 10 is a sign of things to come. The Titans ran at least 2 screens (maybe 3?) against the Bills, but they had not been running too many screens earlier in the year. They've admittedly gotten more creative about getting CJ the ball in space since Young entered the lineup 3 games ago, but that certainly wasn't the case when Collins was under center.Also, the vikings are clearly trying to get the ball to AP in space this season with a lot of designed screens and more dumps then he has received in the past.

The left side of the vikings line has played fine (hutch has been hurt and doesn't have birk to his left so he has not been elite but I think the majority of the nfl would take steve hutchinson at 85%,) i think sullivan has sucked and herrera has never been good. Loadholt has been improving weekly and is a serviceable RT.Tennessee's line has not played at a great level this year either. Roos isn't playing at the level he was last year, the interior of the line is also down (Mawae, scott) ... Amano and Stewart have been solid on the right side but they are not performing any better (and probably worse then the vikings 5some.Also, on the Chris Johnson thing. You obviously didnt watch the San Fran game or even a lot of the Bills game. If anything Johnson is greatly helped by both Scaife and Crumpler being big TEs who can help seal the edge. The best thing about him is he gets to the edge before a defense can close.A lot of Adrian Peterson's negative runs are less to do with poor blocking and more to do with him wanting to either bust something outside instead of taking sure yardage or him trying to setup a big cutback and defenses staying disciplined on the back side. I can understand your chester comparison but in seeing the games I have ... he just doesn't seem to be the back he was last season. He looks indecisive and skiddish.
