Thoughts on Week 1

Everyone...and I mean everyone...had reservations about starting Adrian Peterson this week. I saw so many folks recommending Toby Gerhart over AP. Peterson showed why he's who he is. Nobody comes back from that kind of injury this fast and he rushes for 84 yards and two scores. All Day! Either the Washington defensive line is amazing or the offensive line of the Saints needs...
