Peterson set the bar high for himself. But judging by his performance in camp so far and in the eyes of his coaches and teammates, Peterson has improved as a player and become more comfortable as a team leader.

"I feel totally different," Peterson said...

Peterson said he is more comfortable with the offense and feels like a more complete back, capable of playing on every down. He spent the offseason gaining a better understanding of blocking schemes and protections. He's also worked on being a more patient runner, allowing his linemen to set up their blocks rather than always looking for the big play


That's what I like to hear. If he gets this down, he will be absolutely lethal! Rock on

I can't wait. AP, "All Day": Get some !!

I get really excited thinking about what AP is going to do to opposing defenses this year.

AP is going to have a season for the ages in 2008, and I don't care what anyone says. It is going to happen.

Its gonna be fun to watch this kid this year.

Imagine how all the AD crotchsniffers are gonna sniff when they watch him excell in all aspects of the game instead of just running.


You won't be able to live with em.
I think most of us will figure out how though.
;D
;D ;D

In light contact practices.

The Jags have pics of T-Will catching pass after pass too.

Yup, easy get to get pumped in early season.
All these boys have talent, how they come to play when it counts is the real measure.
But, its all we have to judge by at the moment.

No reason why AD can't be a decent blocker though.

Nope. He's definitely not afraid to hit a lineman head on. It should be just a matter of discipline & learning his assignment.

Darren Sharper said Peterson looks 3x better now then he did last season... lets hope he is right.
