    AP with and without a fullback

    One thing that I think separates Adrian Peterson this year from last year is Tony Richardson, the blocking fullback. Not many people talk about this, but how important was it for AP in those big games last year ?

    Are we talking as if All Day's numbers are way down here? I mean he is having a pretty impressive season and is on pace for 1,800 yards. I would say he is still having "big games" he has just grown consistent.
    I don't think we are hurt by the loss of Richardson even slightly ... and there are no real numbers to show that we are.

    Richardson was one heck of a blocker and I think i'd rather him be here.
    AP is doing fine though.

    Richardson has blocked for a 1000 yard rusher every year in his career.
    We're bringing purple back.

    I'm not saying All Days production is off, but I would trade both FBs and then some the Vikes started the season with for T. Richardson.

    He was starting to get injury prone, and with his age, was only gonna have more problems. Is Tahi that bad? I have watched the games more than once, and he does stone some backers. I really don't think he is as bad as some like to think. No he's not Richardson, but he isn't all that bad either.

    I'd still like to see Kleinsasser back there more often.

    If I was The Owner I would have tried to find a way to Keep Tony Richardson I know he's and Older player but Smart and a great Blocker for the Running Game. I have been watching Tahi Play well at times but watching A.P.
    without a blocker he seems to do be doin pretty good.
