I still think that whatever this year's running game ends up being, will be better since we have a QB that seems to be able to convert on 3rd and short, and can make a play off schedule.

I'm also bummed that we didn't see more of Perine, because he had a hell of a first run against the Jets (and got hurt).

Also keep in mind, we have a quarterback who can run as well. I know Cousins was mobile, but Smith is much more of a mobile QB than what Cousins was, and that's always an added dimension to the offense too. Who knows, maybe Peterson winds up having a big year with the 'skins. I'd still just thank him for that one year and welcome Guice back with open arms in 2019, but ya never know. I know this was a different era, but Riggins had his best years in his twilight of his career.

Re: Redskins Signing Adrian Peterson

Yea no problems here. Doubt they paid much and as previously stated he could mentally help the running back room, too. We need somebody and why not give the old guy a shot at doing something, anything.

Yeah, I'm fine with it as long as he doesn't become a cancer bitching about his number of carries. If he starts that shit up like in New Orleans, cut his ass. Otherwise, it's not really a big deal in terms of signing a 1 year deal.

One year deal. Not dumb at all. Guy had a couple big games last year behind the worst line in the nfl. He could be halfway decent and is here for depth so.....

Redskins Signing Adrian Peterson

Why is everyone freaking out? Lol. It is a one year deal, and he was really no worse than anyone we had last year (minus CT - who is coming off an injury and a third down back) and that was behind a much worse o line. This is not trading draft picks to sign a washed up ex star to a five year deal like the old days. If he fails miserably so be it. He will be gone next year anyway and this year we will go with kelly, perine, ct etc just like we would have. Its a very low risk possible high reward move. Chillax.

It's a few years ago now, a lot of ppl have put it behind them, he went thru the reccomended trearment and has shown remorse for his actions.

We didn't sign him to babysit our kids...

That's really as far as I want to go into this.

Re: Redskins Signing Adrian Peterson

Iím fine with it, itís not like he signed for big money, given our RB situation we needed someone. I donít have high hopes for him production wise but we shall see. Hope he proves me wrong.

Jay's job is on the line and Dough Williams has been consistently saying that they need to improve the running game (a judgement on all the returning RBs not named Chris Thompson). With Guice out and all the injuries, the running game would have been back to last year's status.

AP was given a 1-year deal, which is very low risk/high reward type of situation IMO.

I'd prefer this outcome, as opposed to giving up a draft pick on a 1-year rental. Did you forget the TJ Duckett trade? That was Vinny ball.

Also, I prefer this to the status quo of having a recovering CT, banged up Perine and just Kelly and Bibbs healthy.
There is no high reward w/ AP at this point of his career. And if Jay's thinking that a 33 year old rb who is way past his prime w/ a 3.1 ypc last year is going to help save his job then that is pretty sad. It's a total panic move by the Redskins to try and get the fanbase excited. We've seen this shit before.

Also you don't need to make a Tj Duckett type of trade. If the Redskins were smart and patient, they'd just bring in some guys off the street to play the last two pre season games, then see which backs are released at the end of pre season. Example...The Ravens picked up Alex Collins after he was cut by the Seahawks last pre season and he ended up being their starter. He started 12 games and almost had 1,000 yards.

That is the only thing that bothers me. Not the one year deal for a potentially very serviceable rb but that I hate him. Oh well. If he fails miserably i can say eff you child beater so there is that....

I can't root for someone who whips a defenseless 4 year old with a tree branch and sticks leaves in his mouth.
