    Peterson either needs to be the featured back or released. He's not a type of player that fits a RBBC.

    Honestly, they should have tried for Charles, I think he would fit that offense far better than Peterson.

    Peterson could bounce back, but people needed to recognize that he's OLD for a running back. He's 32, an age when 99% of running backs are out of the league.

    Lynch looks like the better old running back right now, he's a year younger, plus taking a year off probably helped him physically. He's also had fewer major injuries I think.

    Yes, Adrian you did sign up for 9 snaps a game. When you go to a team that has a pass happy offense, has a starting running back in front of you and also has another running back that is better suited as a 3rd down back/pass catcher then you set yourself up as a guy who will only get 9 snaps per game.

    It's possible that Loomis and Peyton are not on the same page -- GM buying assets that the coach doesn't want or need.

    What did AP think when he signed? He was going to be the feature back in a throwing offense?

    At that rate he will break Emmitts record when he's 73.
    Apparently, AP has a problem with reality, reality of his current abilities, reality of his current profession, and reality of what's appropriate in regards to child rearing...I'm sure there more
