I also really think that the Vikes ARE too reliant on AP, they can't have him return anymore. At all. If he gets injured, like he did any time last year, only a little worse, 10 out of 16 games (that he'd miss) would ruin the vikes. I don't think it's a contest for anyone to deny that AP is injury prone, he runs very dangerously, but dangerously well. Super high risk/reward.
I don't think it's the end, but i don't think it's going to be a domination in the NFCN.
