    While many parrots are writing about whose feelings might be hurt, they are missing stories, or are inadequately addressing stories, like Peterson in the passing game. Few things would make the Vikings offense less predictable than Peterson becoming even a decent blocker, and if he fails to make that improvement this year, his professionalism should be questioned loudly. Good defensive coordinators, like the late Jim Johnson, just have it too easy when the running back can't block, because the offense's playbook shrinks very significantly. If guys like Walter Payton and Emmitt Smith made themselves not just decent, but truly great blockers, there isn't a reason in the world, besides lack of dedication, that Peterson won't become at least adequate at this skill, which is so important to a team winning.
