When Chester Taylor comes back from his oblique injury, he will get just as many carries as Adrian Peterson; because that's the way the head coach wants it.
That’s fine. Chester Taylor is a serviceable NFL running back. In fact, he’s above average. But, Adrian Peterson is a stud and at some point this job sharing thing just won’t work.
Childress did try to explain the significance of having two solid running backs by making a pretty reasonable comparison when he said:
"That's why it's good to have two. That's why you have a vice president, because the president might not be there. He might be gone, and the vice president has to step up."
Yeah, I would say being the President/VP is about the same as running a football. They are pretty comparable when it’s all said and done. Coach Chill is coming out of his shell a little bit and he’s starting to sound like Denny Green.
I am looking forward to seeing Speaker of the House Mewelde Moore back in uniform this week. He should be returning kicks instead of Adrian Peterson and he does have a little shiftiness in him should Chester Taylor not be able to go.
If we get to the point where President pro tempore of the Senate Naufahu Tani spends a lot of time running the ball, this season is over.
