So Childress plans to stick with a RB rotation going forward, one in which Chester Taylor was in for 41 plays and Adrian Peterson was in for 25 on Sunday against Green Bay. One in which Adrian Peterson, despite having over 100 yards at halftime, was given the ball only twice in the second half. Great.
I'm all for using two backs to keep them both fresh and everything, but Peterson is in a whole different class. You can see it watching the game. He's faster and stronger than Taylor, and he can obviously catch the ball so you can't use that excuse. Peterson should be getting about 75% of the running back touches right now. The only reason I can see for using Taylor more than AP would be if the rookie is struggling in pass protection and the other, smaller facets of the game that aren't as easy to notice and don't show up in the boxscore. Only problem there, is that I haven't seen or heard anything to that nature.
In conclusion, Childress is an idiot. Not only for this situation, but the QB thing is his fault as well.
