Yahoo Writer says Deangelo a HOF with Adrian Peterson if give opportunity

44 posts in this topic

Don't forget, in 2008 DeAngelo had 1,515 rushing yards and 18 TDs (along with 121 receiving yards and 2 TDs) and he was splitting carries with J-Stew as well (who had 836 rushing yards and and 10 TDs himself). If we had stuck with the Fox ball control offense, D-Will would be spoken of as a top 5 back in the league.

AP split carries his rookie year. He also didnt allow that to continue

Oddly enough a friend of mine tweeted a Yahoo article he wrote earlier today. He is a college student, not a journalist

1500 yards one season doesn't make you the RB Adrian Peterson is today.

DWill has .1 (thats POINT 1) less yards per carry than Peterson. Peterson has only had 2 years over 5 yards a carry while Williams has had 4 years over 5 yards a carry. Williams has around 600 less career carries than Peterson even though he has been in the league 1 year longer. Remember Fox had Williams behind Foster for 2 years. Also Chud hasn't used the run that much the past 2 years. The article has a point. If Williams didn't have those 4 wasted years due to coaching and coordinators, he could be right up there with Peterson.

So where is the Jamal Charles fan article talking about how Peterson and Williams both suck

Dwill splits carries because Hurney is/was ignnorant and used our first round pick 2 times in a 3 year period on the Running Back position.

Just another reason why we have deficencies in so many areas.

That being said Dwill has averaged 4.9 YPC over 1200 attempts in his career.

AP has averaged 5.0 YPC over 1700 attempts in his career. So AP is about 3.6 inches per rush better than DWill.

I can see the writers point in this article, it's a good one.
