Good chance to pick up 1 point on me, since I was late getting last nights pick in there, and I would have scored a positive on it. :-(

Adrian Peterson to the Cardinals. He joins fellow 32-year-old back Chris Johnson in Arizona's attempts to fill in for David Johnson, who is out for the season.

This would have been a really good backfield in 2009....

Both those guys probably have nothing left in the tank. Only a few ageless wonders in the backfield like Emmitt Smith and Frank Gore, and Gore's not what he used to be.

If your combined running backs have averaged less than 2 yards per carry so far this season, I'm not exactly sure that Adrian Peterson is gonna have a hole to run through.... And he isn't the best at catching a pass over the middle either. He won't be running thru the line, so that leaves a screen pass, and if you can't block on the line, not sure you can block while running at the front of a screen play, so that leaves, what?

He might get more carries, and that is what he cried about in NO, but he won't be running for 4 or 5 yards a pop all the time either. He might get 20 carries for 50 yards. More like 15 for 40 and 5 receptions for 25.

You hit it on the head, Mr.P.

According to a commentator in one of NO games, the reason for AP's demise is that he runs only. He doesn't do the other things you mentioned, especially block or receive. Which means, whenever he is in the other team knows that a run is coming. And that's not good.

Go Frank Gore You are still MY Man!

Speaking of Gore.

My favorite 49ers players in the last 10 years or so are: Patrick willis, The Cowboy, Bowman, and Frank Gore. Ok, I'll add Joe Staley, our long time LT.

From these gents, Frank is the most that I'd LOVE to meet in person.

AP also can't run worth a damn out of the shotgun.

Not a lot of room left for one dimensional backs in the NFL. Even LeGarrette Blount is more versatile at this point in their careers.

Marshawn Lynch looks done in Oakland too. I guess some teams still think underachieving older backs can turn it around late in their careers, and they simply can't.

Only Frank Gore still gets it done on Sundays, but I think the Colts roll with rookie sensation Marlon Mack as their starting back next year.

Man, CBS should never be allowed to broadcast a game! Everything about their production is horrible. The commentators are un-listenable, their theme music is nerve-wrecking. Just stop, CBS
