damm WOW I can't believe chlidress is still is trying to back Tebow lol ... Tim Tebow Didn't play a single snap against the Detroit Lions on Thursday night. & the game before that he was minus one yard passing. lol The Odds of Tebow making the Patroiots 53 man roster is less than a 50/50 bet to make the team. Your man sucks Chlidress You look like a idiot the way you keep trying to back this loser.. Hay maybe what they say is true - You know Birds of a feather flock together. OYES VIKINGS HO!

That will be a tough start without a Pro Bowl FB leading the way against some tough dlines to start the season.

I am sure nobody is worried. AD will manage and from what I hear the vikings already have 2 other good FBs on the roster. If the Pro Bowl had spots for 3 FBs they would all be vikings I bet.

Tebow reminds Childress of Tarkenton, the scrambling at least. Personally I hope the Vikings go all-in on Teblow. That way they'll suck for another decade guaranteed.

True Felton was Peterson's lead blocker & for sure will be missed

Peterson's 2,097-yard season, the second-best in NFL history, was constructed largely with Felton stuffing defenders in front of him. According to ESPN Stats & Information, 224 of Peterson's 348 carries last season came in a two-back set. He averaged a whopping 7.25 yards per carry in those situations, scoring eight of his 12 touchdowns. When he wasn't in a two-back set? Peterson averaged 3.8 yards on his other 124 carries, for a total of 471 yards. To put it in the parlance of Marvel Comics (now owned by Disney!), without Felton, Peterson was Tony Stark. With him, he was Iron Man.

The Vikings has been using Zach Line as FB, This guy can play. He played RB in college but The Vikes is using him as a FB & so far he has looked good.
