Peterson Is Fast

Adrian Peterson is fast. Seems like many of you already knew that. Unless, of course, you were Norv Turner, who told the Associated Press that he ‘misjudged’ Peterson's speed.

Wait ... what? You misjudged Peterson's speed? How exactly were the Chargers scouting Peterson, by playing endless games of Madden? Because that seems to be the only explanation as to why Turner had Philip Rivers heaving the ball deep on every play.

Just when you think Norv can't look any dumber, of mismatched as an NFL head coach, he sinks even lower.

Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman did the admirable thing in trying to deflect criticism off of his coach by saying that coaches don’t tackle, players do. But Merriman also said that tackling was all about attitude.

That attitude was shifted when A.J. Smith hired a hands-off coach like Turner who changed the culture of the team. The Chargers defense is now as soft as Brittany Spears midsection and that attitude of the defense is about as indifferent as Spears’ driving skills. The Chargers quit in the fourth quarter when Peterson gained nearly 200 of his yards.

Norv has drained all the life out of the team.

Hey, when a guy runs a combine speed equal to Jason Hill and Yamon Figures, its easy to misjudge his speed. A 4.3 40 speed is so 2007. Step into the now, 2008 editions of cars are already out!

Hey man, there's not one, but TWO Adrian Peterson's in the league. It's pretty hard to keep up with all of them! I don't blame the guy at all.

I dont know whether to be happy that that the Patriots are not going to the superbowl because ME WANT FOOD is grotesquely, cawk shrinking corpulent, or to be completely afraid because there is always that chance I might wind up too drunk =/ The fate of the NFL rests on my shoulders.

With all the fires Tijuana's Hat has had, it's almost a shame that I must wreak them further assunder.
