    Why do you think that is? Is it because Jamaal wasn't allowing anything to happen on his side? Again, I'm not saying he's not going to be good, because I think he will be, I'm just proving my point that he wasn't as disruptive as you think he was.
    Considering a team had to gameplan for a rookie...ya...he's as disruptive as I think he is...

      Anderson had amazing push early...and is Jamaal supposed to keep a guy from running up the middle? NEWP, newbies know nothing obviously...but his job is to hold the point of attack...did you not notice not much of anything at all was able to happen on his side? I mean if you really watched the game in slow mo and 3 times at that, I'm SURE you saw it...right? Yes, he wore down as the game went on, but if you'll notice, their playcalling was different too. He was getting push when they weren't 1-2 second plays...no DE in football gets push on plays like that. To say that he had anything LESS than a good game for a rookie DE is foolishness. You have to keep things in perspective, and that's what most of the people here SUCK at. To say that he should have been #18 is also pretty foolish, did you not watch him in the pre-season? Might want to re-watch the 3rd game...that's just a FLASH of his potential...if he plays up to that level consistently he's going to be a top 5 DE in the league...maybe higher...to say that's not worth the #8 pick means you may be the least intelligent person I've ever met. Jamaal was picked on his raw ability and talent, not on his polished proven skill. He has the tools, we have to coach him properly. The Vikings had a good gameplan because they were ahead and could play that way, neutralized our pass rush.
      Ok, that's fine.

      I don't know if you saw the stat, but it logged the amount of Peterson rushing yards to each direction after the half, and all were to the middle or right. Lots were to the middle, but saying he plugged the run isn't entirely true. He also didn't get much pressure on the QB facing a mediocre right tackle. Now, considering he was a prospect based off of potential, I don't expect a ton of production early on. But I'm not going to be a homer and say he played great. None to the left. I'm not saying he doesn't have the tools. I'm saying he was not the 8th best prospect in the draft.

      JaMarcus Russell
      Adrian Peterson
      Calvin Johnson
      Gaines Adams
      Joe Thomas
      LaRon Landry

      All, IMO, are definitely better prospects. I would also have, albeit not neccessarily for us, Amobi Okoye, Patrick Willis, Levi Brown, MarShawn Lynch and Adam Carriker rated higher.

        I did see the stat, but when he was in there they didn't run well to his side either...and if you didn't notice they doubled and chipped him MOST of the game after he was pushing the RT wherever he wanted early on.

          What kind of game plan is running right at him? Abraham has a reputation for not being so great against the run (it's not true, but it's there), why didn't they run against him with a great left side? It's because they know Anderson doesn't have the technique down and he was going to struggle some.

            So, that's why they doubled him and chipped him and cut him? Yeah...if that's not game planning for a rookie...nothing is...

              And I take it you thought he was "disruptive" against Jacksonville too? I'm not bashing him, because he's a really unrefined rookie, but he hasn't done much of anything up to this point.

                Very true. Not saying he won't do anything, but it's dissappointing seeing Calvin Johnson, Levi Brown, Adrian Peterson, Amobi Okoye, Patrick Willis, etc etc make plays. Then again Gaines Adams, Joe Thomas, JaMarcus Russell, Adam Carriker, etc etc haven't done much either.

                  Everyone knew that he was raw, so I'm not surprised that he hasn't been a game-breaker already. However, he's already shown some signs. He actually held up reasonably well against one of the better run-blocking RTs (Tony Pashos), and beat him to the outside on several occasions.

                  He's not there yet, but I think the promise is there.
