Math is hard. That’s why we brought Brad Davis (@DeltaBCDad) on the show to breakdown his three-part statistical analysis at Vikings Territory on the likelihood of Adrian Peterson’s decline as a running back. 30-years old has been the standard age cliff for NFL running backs, but does the data suggest that Adrian will follow the trend or buck it? (No matter which team he’s on)
We get into the numbers with Brad as well as talk recent offseason moves as the Minnesota Vikings, not just the NFL, have become a year round sport. #VikingsTwitter may be upset with the lack of free agent action and Jennings being cut, but the Vikings are building for beyond 2015 — not loading up for a one year Super Bowl or bust push (ala 2009).
Teddy’s the face of the franchise and hopefully will have a decade+ of success here in Minnesota. It makes sense to build a young team with him rather than fill the cap with bloated veteran contracts in an attempt to “win” free agency. Ask the Buccaneers how that worked out last year…
