    Hey, San Diego Chargers Defense: Vikings' Adrian Peterson Thinks You're a Joke

    The best trash talkers in sports, from Muhammad Ali to Joe Namath to the Fab Five to Deion Sanders, have always had two qualities:

    1. They're funny.
    2. They can back it up on the field.

    By those two standards, it appears that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson may be developing into a great trash talker.

    This week he was asked to name the toughest defense he had faced, and he answered, the San Diego Chargers. And then he added, "That was a joke."

    Peterson, of course, ran for an NFL record 296 yards against the Chargers last season, and he drew a laugh with that comment. Somehow I'm guessing players on the Chargers won't find it funny.

    The Chargers defense was a joke when he played us. Probably won't be this year if Waters starts and Luis and Jamal revert to their old forms but I wouldn't bank on this. All in all the defense has been one of the most overrated units in the league the past few years, especially with Wade Phillips in command. Cottrell in was a start and replacing Florence will help but I still see glaring weaknesses if Waters rides the bench and Luis and Jamal don't play like healthy men.

    It's all good and Adrian please keep in mind how many yards you gained after Castillo left the game.

    He'll have a chance to prove what a man he is when he plays the Chargers again in 2010, IF he is still in the league.

    MTL is right, we WERE a joke that day. Nobody but us is using the "injuries" excuse (even if it is true, just look @ the Rivers/Cutler trashtalking incident), no one is gonna remember it that way, it's always gonna be the day AP set the record on us, period.

    AP is a great player. He should be careful tho to not let it get to his head too much. Just what you want after a great rookie campaign, to paint a big fukin target on your head.

    And Jamal had just come back from having both his knees scoped.

    Technicalities aside, if you listen to the media and sports forum whores you'd think Rivers was the only player in the NFL that talks trash.

    ay, there's the rub
    their OL is conceivably better then ours is, that'll make stopping him damn near impossible. I think we can but it will be incredibly tough.

    And wasn't Cro's mom kidnapped by an ex or something like the week of or prior of that game and he was seriously thinking of missing that game.

    I remember reading an article on it.


    Anyways our defense was a joke that day, but hopefully they use it for motivation all the way to a SB title and see who's laughing then.

    Who cares what Peterson says? He hasn't played an entire season in college or the pros in over four years, and his team was sitting on their *** while our "joke" of a defense was playing in the AFC Championship game.

    I'm sure they meant that the Vike's O-line is better than our D-line

    our right side's better then theirs I think
    But their LT-LG-C (McKinnie-Hutchinson-Birk) ranks right up there with our three of Mcneil-Dielman-Hardwick, if not better.

    That's all fine and dandy. All teams have records broken on them. However, what really matters is that I seem to remember a certain team from San Diego going deep in the playoffs and a certain other team from Minnesota not even making the playoffs. :yes:

    Since he won't play us for a while, AP knows he can say whatever he wants and he's not going to have to back it up or face the consequences. Let's hear him talk trash about the Jags defense, or the Titans or the Giants and then back it up. With the history of injuries he's accumulating, he's liable to be used up sooner than most.

    He started 9 games.
    About 300 of the yards coming from the Charger game yes.

    After the Charger game he only had one game where he achieved over 100 yards. Most of the games after his injury he was an average back at best. The injury and game planning effectively shut him down.

    AP style means he will have a short NFL career. Even if he changes completely (which will negatively affect his yards) he will probably have a lower than average NFL rb career. The injuries he has suffered every year is taking a toll. In the AFC game he was limping slightly at the end. He has trouble being an entire game back, more than 20 carries, without showing signs of physical fatigue. This is due to his playing style.

    AP might beat LT in rushing, he might be the best. I doubt it. I see game planning and injuries and keeping him from the rushing title.

    He made a joke of our D that day, injuries aside. How many bad tackling angles did McCree & Hart take that day?

    Until we see him again & stuff his ***, AP can talk 296 rushing yards in a single game's worth of smack.

    But he still won't have a trophy. That's ours this year. :bolt:

    BTW

    Scoreboard! AP can talk all he want's about the Chargers D because he backed it up on the field, so the Chargers D has to take it and sulk on it :icon_evil:, hopefully they use it as motivation for next year :tup:
