Hats Off To Adrian Peterson

On Monday Night, 49er TE Vernon Davis scored a touchdown and removed his helmet in celebration, which drew a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from the officials.

On Sunday afternoon, Adrian Peterson scored the go-ahead touchdown against the Green Bay Packer,s and removed his helmet in celebration, and...nothing. Instead of kicking off from the 15-yard line, the Vikings kicked off from the normal 30-yard line. If only Mason Crosby had been a bit closer.

The Packers played poorly on Sunday, but the refs screwed them over every bit as badly as they screwed themselves.

i have a partial mea culpa.

I ripped on Ryan Grant for being crappy. Well he had 16 carries for 80 some yards.

All true. The times he got crushed behind the line were not, mostly, his fault.

But the one play where a defensive back stood him up in the open field really sticks in my craw.

So anyway, mr GRant, i'm sorry.
