Now sadly once we got to the playoff the teams were talented enough to overcome those mistakes so we lost. That still doesn't change the face that Peterson didn't get the talent other teams did.
People complain about Pioli and QB ... Peterson didn't do shit at that position for 19 years.
King Carl was also a smug jerk who treated the fans like shit.
people have clearly forgotten what a douchebag is about
