Re: Redskins Signing Adrian Peterson

Several of AP runs last night got me really excited. I’ve been asking for a vet RB in free agency for the last couple years..not necessarily a big time signing but an experienced complement.

Rob Kelly could have never made those runs to the outside. I think an AP/ Perine backfield with CT on third down is best case scenario.

Re: Redskins Signing Adrian Peterson

After watching AP, I thought to myself that Kelley is going to get cut. His preseason numbers are awful, and I could see Gruden going with AP, Perine, CT and Marshall or Bibbs (the latter two having more apparent upside than Kelley).

Kelly is terrible. AP has much more natural talent, even at this age.

Yea, he runs like a 24 year old.

The big issue is his body, from week to week, will recover like a 33 year old.

I'm optimistic, but also realistic.

Re: Redskins Signing Adrian Peterson

Hopefully Peterson can handle 15-20 carries per game, Perine can handle 10-15 carries per game, and we can get CT the ball 5-10 times a game (thru runs or passes).

Re: Redskins Signing Adrian Peterson

If he can get us 11 carries a game like that we should be fine

I wouldn't be so sure about that. It's a long season. 11 carries in a pre season game isn't much to go on. But he looked pretty good.

Re: Redskins Signing Adrian Peterson

Kelley is good for getting 2 or 3 yards when you need it. But that's really it. If he was our starter he'd never have runs over 10 yards.

That sounds like the ticket to me. If we don't limit AP's carries, his effectiveness is probably going to diminish as it did last season. I hope he'll be able to accept a reduced role for the good of the team. To me, Perine looks much improved. He should be able to handle some of the load.

Kelley is good for 2-3 yards but not necessarily when you need it.
