Adrian Peterson should have stayed with Jerry

There’s a simple explanation for Vikings running back missing both team buses last weekend in Chicago.

I overslept,” the Vikings running back said, via Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com. “I slept through the alarm, through the calls.”

That caused a momentary panic, before Peterson caught a cab to Solider Field and joined his teammates around 20 minutes late.

While a special teamer might have been made example of, Peterson started the game, but turned the ball over twice in the 28-10 loss.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said it was a “big deal,” whenever a player isn’t where he’s supposed to be, when he’s supposed to be there.

“It was something we just discussed, talked about,” Peterson said. “It’s over and done with. So, I’m moving forward, worrying about what’s important now.”

At least no one tried to compensate by offering him a cup of hot tea.

    Maybe he should have stayed with Ben and Jerry.

    He’ll have to walk if he misses the team bus in Green Bay, nobody within 50 miles will give him a warm ride to Lambeau.

    Whoosh. I thought this involved Mr. Jerry Jones. Thanks for the false headline and no new information.

    Can’t say I blame him. Vikings are horrible. Most of America slept through the game.

    AD is my favoriate player of all time, but I don’t believe that for a second.

    Really? And nobody thought to knock on his door or call his cell? I’m guessing he was on the phone with harvin’s agent seeing how fast he can get on another team.

    I believed him about the incident in Houston. This one seems a little unlikely. He’d better not miss the bus this week because I’m guessing there aren’t a lot of cabs in Appleton, WI.

    His unexplainable fumbles in big games is very Ronnie Harmon like.
