Purple Podcast, episode 3: Goessling on why Adrian Peterson loves Zimmer
The coaches took Tuesday’s off day to adjust the practice reps for players. What have we seen with the adjusted practice reps? Are there any surprises in the snap reallocations? On that note, should we read into Chad Greenway losing middle linebacker snaps Wednesday and Thursday? Who do you expect to be the starting middle linebacker week 1? How do you see the quarterback position shaping up? There are some stories saying Matt Cassel and Teddy Bridgwater are splitting reps with the first-team offense, but is that accurate? Who’s likely to be the starter in week 1? Goessling talked at length with Adrian Peterson on Thursday and wrote a piece about how Peterson wasn’t happy in Minnesota when Leslie Frazier was fired. He’s come around now, and Goessling outlines that part of the conversation and touches on a few other topics from their conversation.
