This man is ridiculous

Adrian PetersonEven as a married man, I have no problem saying this: I love Adrian Peterson.
The Minnesota Vikings rookie running back set the NFL record for most rushing yards in a game with 296 against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday at the Metrodome in Minneapolis.
He had three touchdowns, and the Vikings won.
Minnesota (3-5) has had little to cheer about this NFL season except for Peterson, who became the only rookie in league history to rush for more than 200 yards twice in a season.
Quarterbacks Tarvaris Jackson, Kelly Holcomb and Brooks Bollinger have all struggled at some point this season, which leads me to ask this: Do the Vikings even need a QB?
Why don’t the Vikings line up three guys in the backfield: running backs Peterson and Chester Taylor, and fullback Tony Richardson. Center Matt Birk can just directly snap it to one of those three (mostly Peterson). Maybe the competition committee could petition to allow the popular playground self-hike, so there’s no delay getting the ball in A.D.’s hands. That way, we won’t have to worry about Jackson getting hurt, Holcomb getting sacked because he has little to no protection, or Bollinger having the ball in his hands at all.
I’m confident Peterson could throw the ball if he had to. I wonder if he can coach.
