For those of you with the NFL Network, have fun watching the game. This is a game I wish I could actually watch, although I may be biased with purple blood.
Adrian Peterson looked like his knee was never destroyed and rebuilt. He may well be the Terminator, but unlike Arnold, he’s already back. Tampa is pretty stingy against the run but I never discount AP and I believe he is always a good play.
Christian Ponder looked like a lost little boy last week, throwing 3 picks and a paltry 58!!!! yards.
He is not a good play (I’d be a little surprised if he’s on many teams other than die-hard fans or for emergency situations) even though Tampa is not great against the pass.
That said, Ponder loves Percy! Play Percy Harvin, you never know what that man will do once the ball is in his hands. Another fairly safe play on the Vikings O is Kyle Rudolph. Rudolph is a safety blanket for Big Baby Ponder and babies won’t go for without their blanky.
On the Tampa side, Doug Martin is a fairly safe but nowhere near homerun play. I also like Vincent Jackson. He is extremely talented but has demons on and off the field. V-Jax is a solid option for Josh Freeman, who I wouldn’t dream of starting tonight, and appears, to me, to be the safest play on the Bucs offense.
