Ten years ago, we would’ve done burgers, hot dogs, fries, Moore says. We took out the fryer. We don’t have that anymore. We’re all about introducing them to new foods and teaching them the best way possible to eat.
The Saints had built a 45-10 lead only to see it whittled down to seven in the fourth quarter. Payton was annoyed about the way his team struggled to finish. So when someone asked about what Peterson was doing in Arizona and whether it gave him pause about trading the old warhorse five days earlier, Payton wasn’t having any.
That’s a dumb question, Payton said. We’re trying to win games, and I’d love to have that player. But it’s hard to have that many and get into a rhythm. I thought Mark [Ingram] and Alvin [Kamara] had some big plays, and I would hope we would have had that type of rushing output if Adrian was a part of it.
It’s a tough time for the Redskins to suffer key injuries as their next five games are against Philadelphia, Dallas, Minnesota, New Orleans and Seattle.
The Redskins also dealt with injuries at safety during Sunday’s 26-24 win over San Francisco. Montae Nicholson left with a shoulder injury before returning, and Stefan McClure suffered a hyperextended left knee. Safety Deshazor Everett already was out with a hamstring injury; he’s expected to practice this week.
Ingram and Kamara combined for 189 yards on 35 carries in the Saints’ win on Sunday. And while they couldn’t salt away the game by running it late, they won it by running it early and often, which makes you realize the Saints were loaded at running back and just couldn’t come up with anything for Peterson to do.
I told you all, he’s still got the juice, Ingram said after hearing what Peterson was doing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in his first game as a Cardinal.
