  1. I hope he doesn’t get hurt.

  2. So do I.
    Maybe this is my big break! Every players jersey I own, something bad has happened to them injury wise.

    So far so good with Peterson. Let’s keep it that way.

  3. Dukeshire says:

    Please don’t get (or return your) Hasselbeck jersey then, Thank you.

  4. stormshadow says:

    Didn’t really feel like he deserved it this year.

    But good for him…and we just doubled our Pro Bowlers! :)

  5. Dukeshire: Funny you mention that. I do have a Hasselbeck jersey, and a Kerney. I even have Hasselbeck’s lime green hat. And look at what happened to them.

    I’ve been a curse this year or something.

  6. Oh and I can’t return it!
    I’ve had it since August 23rd. It’s now January 13th haha.
    That was a birthday present.

  7. I’ve got that lime cap too. I wish we’d wear those lime green jersey tops they have on for a home game next season. I think they would look better with blue pants than the ugly blue on blue that we wear for home games.

  8. I bet you 100 dollars it looks better on me.
    Then again I shouldn’t make bets, I always lose.

    No no. That’s one thing I’d disagree with you on. I’d NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER want to see them in lime green jerseys. That would be a nightmare.
    Though they’d have an advantage on opponents. They’d be too focused on the horrid color and lose focus on the game. I like the blue on blue.

    Every jersey I’ve had the guy has been traded, released or gone away in free agency. Mirer, Kitna, Eaton, Dilfer (gave that one to my oldest son). Should have gotten an Alexander in 2005 I guess, then we would have had a better run game in 2006-07. Hmmm, don’t have a Hasselbeck yet…

  10. OutSydeDog says:

    nighthawk2, too many QB jerseys there, I’d wait…lol.

  11. Dukeshire says:

    “… the guy has been traded, released or gone away…”
    nighthawk2 – For you, may I suggest a Tim Ruskell business suit.

    I will not allow them to wear those awful lime green jerseys in a game! Ever!! (I’m not sure I would know how to stop that but I would try.) lol

  12. I’m right there with you.
    I was surprised I even liked the lime green hat. Whenever I pass by Just Sports and see those hideous Lime Green Jersey’s it’s not a pretty sight.

  13. I like Peterson but there is no way he plyaed at a pro bowl level this year.

  14. No lime green jerseys…I would like to see some throw back jerseys this year though.

  15. wabubba68 says:

    I didn’t realize that a LB could be a Pro Bowl caliber player by just consistently running by quarterback while attempting to sack them. If he would break down a bit with his feet and body he would have had MANY, MANY more sacks and possibly would have been deserving of this award.

  16. Not even the throwbacks.
    Those are ugly too.

  17. I don’t like the throwbacks either…

    I like the Blue on Blue personally….way better than our old jerseys…

    same with the Blue helmet…definately tons better, so glad the vans voted for Blue.

  18. Someone who agrees.
    Thank you.

    How does LeRoy Hill not get the nod at LB for us? Julian fell off big time this year. Hopefully this isn’t rubbing sand in Hill’s face so much that he completely abandons returning.
