Adrian Peterson is a beast. And Antoine Winfield (one of my favorite players ever) is one of the top corners in the league. That's all I have to say about the Vikings. I can't really root for them since I'm a Bears fan.
The Vikings have a good team, Peterson is a monster and is one of the best rushers in the league, and he's a rookie. They have the best 1-2 punch when it comes to running backs. The biggest question mark on this team is Tavaris Jackson, he's a good quarterback, but sometimes it seems that he just doesn't show up. I believe has a great future with the Vikings, but I don't think he's ready to carry this team far into the playoffs just yet.
The Vikinges Def and Chester Taylor got me into my FF playoffs. I thank them for that.
I actually am routing for them I love teams that run the ball heavily and well. Adrian and Chester are a great combo the best dual back system in the league. The chargers back-ups with Mike Turner and Sproeles are also good but LT is still the go to guy. When Adrian is having a weak game they put in Chester Taylor and he is just a change of pace. Adrian has better physical running ability but Taylor has great vision.
I agree that T.Jackson doesnt look like the future. He had three good games in a row, then made a lot of "stupid" mistakes on Mon.Night. The running game is great, but Chester doesnt want to be a #2 and proved he is #1 material, I think he will leave next year, i dont want him to, but what can you do when you have All-Day on your team. Lets hope they can beat those Skins' next
The Vikings would be dumb to let Chester Taylor go. Chester proved he could be a number 1 in the league by getting 1200 yds the season prior. Beside Adrian's nick name doesnt suit him. He will have an injury riddled career. Nothing serious but an example was him missing a few weeks this season.
I'm rooting for the Vikings since my team(s) are going no where. With Peterson and Taylor they have a chance to beat anyone. Jackson is still young and I see a lot of potential from this kid. They have a good defense so I really think they could make it to the Superbowl if they make the playoffs that is.
