Last week, against Seattle, I think everybody in the Vikings Territory writers room perked their ears up when a first quarter pass doinked off the hands of Jerick McKinnon and fell incomplete. Why? Well, let’s just say an argument about whether or not Adrian Peterson is actually “one-dimensional” had just taken place, so McKinnon’s miscue made for easy fodder for one side of that fight to use as ammo.
Of course, any “fights” our writers have are in the spirit of good fun and further understanding of this team we all love. This one got a little tense, I won’t lie, but that had more to do with my choice of the words – “lazy group-think narrative” – than anything else.
So, yes, there it is. Half the cat is out of the bag. I believe that Adrian Peterson is not nearly as one-dimensional as everybody else believes he is.
