    This is a joke of a signing and reeks of the Rod Graves era.

    sounds so exciting Adrian Peterson!!!!!

    I would also have been......7 years ago.

    It's a deflection away from the real issues and failures of this team.....the Oline.

    AP will suck real bad here. At least CJ could block!!

    And to compare this signing with KW is a joke. QB's last well into the mid thirties. Not washed up running backs playing behind a horrible Oline.

    You either made a mistake in conveying your thoughts, or my point stands. Your quote looks, to any reader, like you are saying the child is being taught abuse is good and that he might abuse his own future children.
    No, no, no.

    AP was not in control and I have yet to see an angry parent discipline a child corporately correctly yet. In this case it didn't happen so please provide your burden of proof.

    Couldn't careless what a modern dictionary says about anger. Measured responses don't involve anger sorry.

    And again no. You said that future child will be abused in your response. I said "might" for a reason. As in it could happen.

    Sorry to see you are on the wrong side defending AP but the police, state of Texas, and the NFL saw it way differently.

    In case your last sentence refers to the analogy I made earlier, once again it wasn't about the two players being equivalent, it was a criticism of jumping to conclusions. Sometimes rent a players turn out to be more than intended, like KW did, sometimes they are more hype than help because of past performances like Emmett Smith turned out to be. I understand your skepticism as well as others optimism......because we don't know how this is going to workout until we know.

    You're point well taken but AP will do nothing here.

    It is pure desperation but hey!! It is a superstar name so it keeps the casual fans engaged so I can see the move simply for that reason. Football heads know that this trade does nothing to improve the Cardinals, heck it might make them worse given AP's lack of blocking ability.

    I'm thinking about what this signing really does for us. On the margin it probably does improve our running game. It might inject a little enthusiasm in the team for a short burst. Does it make us a playoff team? I really don't think so.

    The reality is AP is older than the guy he replaced. He does nothing to help evaluate what guys who aren't playing should be here as part of the rebuild. What SK and Arians should really be thinking about is Gabbert, NK, Baker, Williams, what position should Reddick play in the future. It's time to play all the young guys and really evaluate who we keep and who we dump.

    Reality is Philadelphia, Detroit and the Cowboys destroyed us in almost every phase of the game. This is a bad team on D, on O and on special teams. It's also an old team. Time to see who is part of the future and sit everyone who isn't. What we gave up for AP doesn't seem like a lot until you're in the draft room and you want to move up a couple of spots in the third or 4th round. It could be the difference in the next David Johnson or the next guy blocking a defender in the back on a 74 yard punt return.
