      I thought first Matt Asiata but McKinnon is more of a big play threat and NE sucks against the run ... so far. I am now hoping McKinnon gets the ball. :thumb:

          That sounds like you have AP on your FF team?

            The Patriots always catch breaks like this. They are weak against the run, and the best back in the game will have to sit out against them.

            Sorry. Just always thinking about the competition.

                I know. That was my thought too. I thought the Vikings could win that game but not now. It would have been so great to see NE at 0-2.

                  -Peterson booked and released from Texas jail-

                  "Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was booked and released from a Texas jail on a child abuse charge early Saturday, capping a tumultuous week for the NFL, which was already facing heavy criticism for its handling of a domestic violence case involving another star player.

                  Peterson was processed at the Montgomery County jail and released on $15,000 bond, according to a sheriff's office spokesman, Lt. Brady Fitzgerald. He is charged with causing injury to a child age 14 or younger, allegedly by spanking one of his sons with a wooden switch, or tree branch, on or around May 18.

                  The star running back won't play Sunday in Minnesota's home opener against New England. Shortly after the news of the indictment broke Friday, the Vikings announced that Peterson had been benched for the game against the Patriots.

                  Brian McCarthy, a spokesman for the league, said Saturday that Peterson's case ''will be reviewed under the NFL's personal conduct policy.''" ...

                      What's the significance of it being reviewed under the personal conduct policy? Will that effect his suspension?

                      Also, will the suspension take place before the trial or will they wait until it all plays out? These aren't really questions specifically for you Emily Diana , I'm just asking in general

                        Well, that was short-lived. Adrian Peterson expected to play Sunday.

                          The Vikings actually took a step back and realized they suck without him. So, for the sake of putting a 'W' in their win column they will play a child abuser - who openly admits to beating his son and feels it is 'justified'.
                          The Browns are gone; I'm not a fan of the Impostors

                          The real Browns are in Baltimore, see?
