The Onion has fun with Peterson

Posted on: June 22, 2010 5:43 pm
We enjoy covering the NFL. We enjoy reading the Onion. We enjoy laughing.

That’s why we’re linking to the satirical web site today. In an article entitled “Vikings not going to tinker with the way Adrian Peterson fumbles ball,” the Onion staff details how the Minnesota coaches will continue to encourage Peterson putting the ball on the ground.

Said Vikings coach Brad Childress in the mock news story: "When you have a great natural fumbler like Adrian Peterson, you don't want to mess with that. That's just raw talent right there. Nobody can expose the ball exactly the way he does. You can't teach that."

The Onion does have a point. In the past two seasons, Peterson has combined to fumble 16 times (twice in the NFC Championship game last year while flubbing another handoff en route to a benching in that important game). It’s the reason why Peterson has worked this offseason with a 14-pound football.
