I agree to an extent. But if Chester Taylor could run for 1,200 yards with similar surroundings, I think ADP could easily match or surpass that.


Except that in 2006 you had Brad Johnson at QB, and while he was no great prize, he was still just good enough to pick apart a defense that would put eight in the box against him.

Taylor/ADP are going to face a stacked defense all season, much like LT2 did when Rivers took over. Only thing is, the Minny line is not nearly as good as the Bolts', and there is no Antonio Gates at safety valve for Tarvaris Jackson.

I would not expect much out of either this year, that's for sure.


I hear where you're coming from. But Brad Johnson was simply abysmal at times last year and his decision making was not nearly as good as it had been hailed throughout his career. Granted, his supporting cast was wretched, but when you're unable to stretch the field at all with your arm, the box is going to be stacked anyway. T-Jax at least offers the threat of a vertical attack, and what he lacks in the mental department he at least provides that threat in the physical department. I'd call it a wash, because it can't get anyone worse than the aerial attack that Johnson led last year. I'd be shocked if the Vikes run game isn't at least on par with last years.

I think Minny will be better off at QB this year. Jackson got some experience under his belt last year, and he should continue to improve. I don't think he's the second coming of Daunte Culpepper for you guys, though, and a lot of that has to do with the lack of supporting cast, which as you say has been wretched.

I just doubt that either ADP or Chester will be all that effective with no passing threat.

It's not looking good offensively in Minny. Good thing you guys have a pretty good defense. They're going to have to carry you again this year.

Yea the offense will all in likelihood suffer again thanks to the passing game. You certainly have some valid concerns about the running game. We'll just have to wait and see how it turns out. ;-D

I haven't really thought much on the Minny backfield situation since neither Chester nor AP fell to me in drafts, but I've got to wonder now if Mewelde Moore is a viable late round option now. :-?
The cake is a lie.

Fanball is reporting that X-rays were negative and it is just a contusion.

Looks like a false alarm..

Which brings on the real question of how Chester Taylor plays football when he rolls around on the ground in agony and has to be carted off the field for a contusion.
