Pretty close to even, the Vikings aren't going to win any games with Jackson throwing 35+ times. You can't go wrong with Grant or Peterson, but Grant is in a much more favorable position being that the Packers are a throw first team and the Vikings aren't a threat through the air.

They are two different styles of runners, and in all honesty, there's no way I can put Grant ahead of Peterson at this point. Maybe in time I can make that leap, provided Grant builds upon last season's success.

Grant had a solid game. Esp when you factor in his lack of training camp time.
But if both players were available and going to get the same pay I would take AP in a heartbeat.
Mike McCarthy would use AP better than Childress does.

There's no contest, Peterson is better. That's despite the fact that he's hamstrung by their coaching staff who refuse to give him enough carries or throw him screen passes.

Here is my point. All the pre game is about how good their running game and rushing D are.

Adrian early on was the better of the two, but as the game progressed, neither really played a significant role.

But with the hype surrounding the Run game and D-line, both were absent.
