Default Sophomore Slump!

Who gets it?

I am going to say Dwayne Bowe, just a lot of things going against him. Inexperience at CB, questionable offensive line play and a division FULL of top notch cover guys (Bly, Bailey, Hall, Asomugha, Cro, etc).

Almost all RB's have a sophmore slump. I think now that teams are aware of Adrien Peterson they will do everything to stop him since they have no QB to take the pressure away.

He will have a slump IMO.

Dwayne Bowe..You have to worry about Second year WR's who had a big Rookie Year..And I dont think his QB is gonna help all that much.

im going to agree with bowe too. sorry chiefs fans...i just dont see him doing well this next year. down the line i think he'll be a stud but theres just not much else in that offense to be happy about.

one guy i DONT think will be slumping is marshawn lynch. he may actually have some better consistancy at QB this year if edwards is in all year and that team has some decent receivers already in evans and parrish and could add another via the draft. i think he might do even better this year if the offense works around him.

Yah, actually the thoughts "what happened to Michael Clayton??" crossed my mind when I typed in Dwayne Bowe.

But I am surprised this is so unanimous, seeing has how gaudy Peterson and Willis' stats are.

Bowe will be shut down for atleast two games a year now. ;)
If Bowe goes downhill next season it won't be because of the QB or O-Line situation but LJ.

I'm going to go with Adrian Peterson.

He's going to be the number 1 pick in every fantasy football leauge this year. The expectations are going to be huge! I just think he'll have a drop in production and not live up to what most are expecting of him.

We'll run the ball more im sure
Rodgers isnt quite as good as Favre in his old age
If we draft a TE early we'll go more 2 TE sets than 3 WR sets i bet

I gotta go with Bowe. Because of his position WR's usually are inconsistent and and his team doesnt have the best QB situation as of right now.

Ya after teams figured him out look at his stats from the last 6 games he played in last year.....

280 rushing yards in the last 6 games....Hes lucky he got to play Detroit in that span and had a 116 yard game.

Teams knew the Viks couldnt win a game passing it so they most likely spend there time studying more game film on AP.


Did you know that excluding the Chicago and Chargers game AP was just an average back all year.

Minus those 2 games and the 2 he missed from injury here were his overall stats....

12 games - 816 yards 6 TD's, that equals 65 rush yards a game. Not pro bowl caliber IMO.





12 games = 816 6 TD
2 games = 520 yards 6 TD

I selected Peterson.

As the season got longer, his yards came by fewer and fewer. In the last 8 weeks he had 1 game over 100 yards (2 weeks injured). Teams were figuring them out and putting 8 in the box.

If the Vikings are going to win this season, it's going to come by the arm of Jackson. And of course, Chester Taylor will demand carries as well.

I think the only way Peterson has one is if he gets hurt...because Chester Taylor will take a lot of pressure off of AD and Peterson is probably the most gifted back in the league.
