Sidney ditches the crutches, plus inside the numbers with Brett, Adrian

The Vikings record with Favre throwing less than 34 passes when Sidney suits up, Adrian runs 19 + times: 7-0

Despite sitting in 3rd place of the NFC North at 1-3, the Vikings are still serious contenders in the NFC.

According to Visanthe Shiancoe’s twitter page Sidney Rice no longer needs crutches.  Chalk up yet another victory for twitter.

Here’s the evidence, visible proof.

Good news for Vikings fans, however, when will he play, and how much of an impact will he make if/when he returns?

Sidney, Randy, and Percy.  Think about that for a second, and imagine the endless possibilities.  Oh, and don’t forget “All Day” Adrian, who’s been more like “half day” Peterson, considering the fact he only touched the rock 19 times (18 of them rushes) last night in the Big Apple.  Brett passed the ball 16 more times than Adrian rushed it.   Maybe the team can fully put to test his nickname this weekend in the Metrodome against Dallas.  Sunday, redemption will be sooner than you think.

Inside the numbers win-loss record: Brett Lorenzo Favre, when attempting 34 or more passes in a Minnesota Vikings uniform (including Playoffs), ’09 record – 2-4, ’10 record – 1-2.  That makes the team an overall 3-6 when Favre passes the ball 34 or more times and 11-2 when Favre passes it less than 34 times.

Peterson, when carrying the ball 19 or more times with Favre as the team’s starting QB (including Playoffs), ’09 record – 9-2, ’10 record – 1-1.  That makes the team an overall 10-3 when Peterson runs the ball 19 or more times with Favre as starter and 4-5 when Peterson rushes the ball less than 19 times.  8-1 is the team’s record when Peterson runs the ball 19 or more times and Favre throws the ball less than 34 times in the same game.  The results are clearly evident, in favor of Adrian running the ball more and Brett throwing the ball less.

    if we’re playing a crap team, and last year we did have an easier schedule, we don’t need to play catch up and throw; also, then everything pretty much works, run and pass, and teams like to run if they can, and runs are safer

    ya get more carries when you’re ahead at the end of the game and running out the clock, and then you might get a tired defense to run on and break a big one, too. i don’t know, i’d guess that the number of runs doesn’t always get you the lead, but the lead gets you a greater number of runs

    I like how Peterson has been our leading receiver for the year but last night they barely tried to pass it to him.
