Dr Andrews, thanks for making AP as good as new. It is a miracle because he is Purple Jesus. All good things work towards good for the cause of Purple Jesus rushing for another 200 yards on Saturday. Go Minnesota Vikings and AP, Ad, Purple Jesus.

God Ap is determined. The surgeon, pt and trainer are all obviously hard workers and good at their jobs. Miracle? God no. Or maybe just no. I appreciate the humility of AP and his humor, determination, etc, bit it is possible to be humble without spouting your religious beliefs. There are actually players on this particular team who accomplish this.

Wow! Minnesota football fans have had two miracles happen recently. First God sent Jerry Kill to coach the Gophers, then God fixed AP's knee.

So, lemme get this straight: it's okay for Dr. Andrews to credit God - "Thank God for it" - for a successful surgery, but NOT okay for AP - "spouting (his) religious beliefs" - to do the same?

I think it is in poor taste for both.

I could be wrong, but last I heard, "poor taste" was still covered under this country's free speech amendment.
