Adrian Peterson has been in the second tier of the MVP race behind Tom Brady and Cam Newton. He’s also established himself as the best running back in the NFL once again. Today’s blowout loss to the Seattle Seahawks saw the star show frustration about the coaching and his lack of carries. Peterson only carried the ball 8 times for 18 yards.
Peterson said Minnesota was “outcoached in many different ways” and delivered the criticism with the following words:
“What do you think? As one of the leaders on the team, seeing how the running game has been all season, you definitely want to be able to go out and establish the run and let things feed off of that. To finish with eight carries, it’s tough. I feel like we’re able to sit back, evaluate some things again and get back to what we do.”
Luckily for Vikings head coach Mike Zimmerman, Peterson expressed optimism in fixing the game plan as they head into Thursday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. Give the man more carries.
