By now you might have heard, Adrian Peterson the Minnesota running back his his eye set on a 2,500 yard season. The Vikings are going to need a solid performance out of their star player. Especially after what we saw them do in the preseason.
Peterson will be the boost this Vikings offense needs. They could sustain much during their offensive drives without him. If Peterson even comes close to producing a 2,50 yard season he will be able to help his Vikings control the tempo of the game.
That’s a good thing, they could control the tempo all preseason. They are going to need to keep their defense off the field to give them a chance to rest. If the Vikings can’t get it going with Peterson, the fans are going to be in for a very disappointing outcome this year.
The team isn’t showing much without him. To go 1-3 on the preseason doesn’t mean much once the season starts, the thing the fans have to hope for is Peterson is in great form from the start with as little activity as he saw.
The Vikings might be a one-dimensional team coming into the 2013 season and that one dimension is Adrian Peterson. Lets hope he stays healthy….
