    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?

    Yes, exactly that.

    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

    Peterson had 4 rushing attempts today for 4 yards with a long run of 4 yards. That moves his season totals to 27 carries for 81 yards.

    I was worried that Peterson would have a monster year with the Saints and eventually break Emmitt's rushing record. At this pace, I doubt he will get there.

    And that's why I'm glad a lot of the arm chair GM's aren't in control of the Cowboys......

    No clue why he signed there, unless their deal was far and away the best offer.

    Alvin Kamara will be their # 1 back soon.

    don't know why Ingram re-signed there either. Wasting his talents in a Payton offense.

    Was listening to Sirius the other day and I can't remember who was slobbering all over Loomis mentioning that Ireland is now the #2 there. The saints have had several years to fix their D and have failed miserably.

    Well I could "pat myself on my back" and say "#itoldyouso" to a specific user about AD ....but they know and I am sure they are being quiet about it...which in the end is the best thing...when they are quiet.

    He's not what he once was, so hopefully Cowboys fans will stop fantasizing about him.

    Once they drafted Kamara (to go along with Ingram), AP became expendable. The Saints should shop him to teams desperate for RB help.
