I guess I find hospitalizing a woman for multiple broken bones in her face to be pretty comparable.

Not to victim blame, but she wasn't exactly an innocent bystander, she was dropping the most racist word one can say directly at him.

He deserves all the punishment he has gotten and will get over the incident. But she is trash her self and shouldn't be dropping N bombs like that. Period.

Having a woman call you a derogatory name is still no reason to punch her in the face breaking multiple bones.

I don't care if he's available in the 5th round, 7th round, or for $1, I want nothing to do with this player.

McKinnon is terrible though..

 

disagree completely. He was pretty good 2 years ago, when he wasn't running behind that horrible OL of last year. And, he can catch and run. 

One of the best opening day rosters in years. Now go get 'em.

I think McKinnon can be decent as well.  Not a long term answer, but decent enough.

 

Better than anything available in FA.  (Including Peterson)

My fear, right now, is that AP will have no interest on the FA market, and the Vikes bring him back so he can "finish his career" in purple.

I share this fear. Though, if he's healthy and cheap, I wouldn't hate it, I don't think.

 

I have no confidence in this coaching/Gm staff on offense at all. They have been terrible at scoring for more than a few years now. Terrible.

 

Maybe they can get lucky with AP. doubt it, but maybe.
