Mr. Peterson, You are wasting your time with this coaching staff. Did you think before you resign new contract?

The thing that worries me most about the coaching staff and the Vikings organization is that they are always thinking about last week and last year. (Gee, we finished 6-10, so all we have to do is make a few tweaks, and we'll be 9-7. Gosh, we had no offense the past three second halves, and it's because AD didn't get the ball enough. So we'll give him ball in 2nd half... Duh.) It's the NFL - we need to reinvent ourselves every week and stay three steps ahead of the competition. Every time we draft a decent backup, Detroit drafts a star. Every time we try to run the clock out to preserve a lead, Buffalo and Detroit try to BEAT somebody. Let's stop acting like we're "almost there." You're never there if you think that way.

Are we talking "general leg weakness" here? where have I heard that before? I hope AP will be ready next year.

I don't why anyone on this team practices they don't need it. The results will be the same!

The problem now is gonna be that everybody knows all we are gonna do is run especially in the second half. So, when they run run run punt, run run run punt everyone will be whining about why they arent passing. My biggest problem is why they arent using Rudolph. Why did you waste a 2nd round pick on this guy? He is a monster out there with great hands and creates huge matchup problems. The Pats,Packers,Chargers and Falcons have no problem getting their TE's involved but somehow the 23 coaches on the VIkes staff cant????

I think AP caught the Mauer and Morneau disease... Too much money and not enough off time to spend it all..... GET TO WORK !!!

AD is missing ONE DAY of practice, with the coaches' permission. He's not covering it up like Mauer and the Twins coaching staff did. The guy is busting his tail in games, so get off his case. As for Rudolph, the kid isn't getting utilized because McNabb and the O-Line are inept. The coaches may not be calling plays for Rudolph, but as fans we'll never know that for sure.
