The only way to stop Adrian Peterson is to leave him at the hotel and that’s what Leslie Frazier and the Minnesota Vikings did. Next time, maybe they should wait as they were blown out by the Chicago Bears 28-10. Peterson had to take a cab to Soldiers Field, arriving a half an hour later than the team. Frazier had this to say: “The conversation itself, I’ll keep between he and I. But we have talked about it. Hopefully, it will never happen again. I can’t see why it would. I hope it never will again,” Frazier said, via the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “Well, anytime one of your leaders is not where he’s supposed to be, it’s not good. I talk to our team all the time about being where you’re supposed to be and being on time. It’s a big deal.” "I think everybody was pretty focused on their job and doing what they had to do." "I'm not sure how many guys really knew that he wasn't on the bus. I'm not sure. I think our guys were focused on their jobs and what they needed to do." var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
