But don't you call with an incorrect halftime score, dummy. **Follow us on Twitter, View via Our Mobile Site, or Return to BobsBlitz.comFollow us on Twitter. Subscribe or Return to Bob's Blitz.

Peterson has confidence in RG3's ability to improve with time

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson had a spectacular 2012 season to say the least, but what fans forget is that it started off kinda slow after his initial return to the field following surgery on his torn ACL. Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is in the same boat this year - a slow, nothing to write home about post-ACL surgery start, but Peterson...
