What are the chances that Adrian Peterson returns kicks in this post season game?

2 percent

If we have 1 second left on the clock and only 1 chance at a return he will be back

Otherwise u will see Hicks or maybe Reynaud

I actually walked that dog a bit while stewing over the game.......

Could happen but I think only if we are way behind and he isn't being used in the offense cause we have had to resort to the pass alot in an effort to try to catch up.

Fumbleson will not be taking kicks back. Wade, berrian, hicks, allison and others will be picked first

Wade and Berrian are used in punt returns..

Hicks is our main man so obviously he will be there

And Allison hasn't really been used all year

AP is our last breathe guy.. So he will be in if we need it

Hicks has been doing good lately on KO returns.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Hicks hasn't really been doing a solid job, in my opinion. He had a good game versus the Giants, but they're horrible on special teams. I personally feel that AllDay would be returning kicks, but only late in the game and if the game's on the line. With Childress, who knows what he's capable of doing, especially if he gets desperate in the game.

I think the chances are excellent if theVikings trail in the second half.
Hicks was special last week. But the Giants are one of the worst kickoff return special teams in the entire NFL.
I hope we see them again. We will definately take one to the house against them.
Allison runs sideways too much.
Chester Taylor does well.
But it will likely be Hicks, unless we are behind.

Never be surprised in the playoffs, things can happen that even the most seasoned fatassed armchair QB can be surprised by.

I still think Allison should be back there. Where the fuck is this guy?

I don't know, maybe it's just me, but it seemed like Reynaud was doing an outstanding job returning kicks, and Hicks doesn't impress me that much. What gives man?

I think we are the only team in the NFL where that position changes from week to week it seems.

I think it is one of those positions where you need a couple of things

1.
Speed
2.
No Fear
3.
Reps

I think lack of reps will at times lead to hesitancy or possibly fear (I am not sure fear is the right word, but hopefully it conveys what I am thinking)

I know, honestly, is he alive?
I really liked Allison, even as a receiver.

Last time I heard his name was when they were talking about the pass interference thing.

Ya I dont know what happened there

The coaches were loving the progress of Allison during traning camp.

I am not a huge fan of Hicks but, he did have a good game returning against the Giants

Reynaud has done well when given the chance. I personally would like to see Allison or Reynaud back there.

Reynaud. I said it in the pre season, I said it in the season and now I am saing it again. The guy's only issue is he tries to run over the kicker

Hicks did good, was it last week or against Atlanta? Anywho he only impressed one game. Reynaud and Hicks should split

I completely agree. We need to give the job to one guy and have unwavering confidence in him. If we don't have anyone who deserves such trust, maybe we should consider a return specialist for our #1 draft pick next year.

Allison must have done something to get into Chill's doghouse. With all of the hype from the coaches and the media about how well his T.C went, he certainly has not gotten many opportunities to make plays(And he has botched a few he did get) .

I was waiting for him to get cut on Christmas Eve.

looks like I was right. Hicks did a horrible job and late in the game, they put Peterson back there.

Hicks was brought on to be our returner. He blows! I doubt he will be here next year.

Ya I hope he is gone too

He does not have the speed to break a long one he hits the wedge hard which i like but does not have enough speed to punch through

i'm sick of this question.
are we the one team in the whole nfl that can't figure out who can return punts or kicks for 3 years.
hell, we can't seem to decide during games who is gonna be back there.
i've never seen any team use a strategy where you switch up return guys multiple times during the game.
to me this should be an easier decision, and to me makes us look like we are inept in the most simple of areas.
no wonder why people think we have qb issues, we can't even decide on returners.

Reynaud will be the man when he returns from injury.
Allison runs sideways. Hicks runs north and south but lacks the ability to break the big one.
I don't care to see Berrian, Taylor, or Peterson back there.
Wade is ok for fair catching a punt since that's all he does. But I have seen him fair catch on the 6 yard line before. So I don't want him back there either.

In fairness to all these guys, the blocking hasn't been that great for them either.
