Jerick McKinnon training from Angel92's blog

Before moving on to his offseason routine, Jerick McKinnon had to spend some time reflecting on his 2016 season – not so much to focus on what went wrong, but on what he could learn.

Injuries and struggles on the offensive line<a href="">Drew Kaser Womens Jersey</a>  made McKinnon’s first full year as a feature back a rough ride. He averaged just 3.4 Yards Per Carry, a significant drop off from 4.9 YPC over his first two seasons.

According to Sporting Charts, only four running backs with more than 100 carries had a higher percentage of runs stuffed in the backfield. And when he ran the ball up the middle, the Vikings’ runner nicknamed “Jet” was stalled for 2.6 YPC.

McKinnon probably watched Oakland and Dallas running backs glide through gigantic holes like a kid stuck inside with the flu while his friends played outside. But blaming teammates – publicly or privately – usually doesn’t do much good. So instead he looked at the in-season tweaks that led to an improvement over the last six games in which he averaged a solid 4.1 YPC.

“My first year I was more of a patient guy, setting my runs up, but with the way everybody was switching in and out [on the offensive line], it made me get used to making that one cut sometimes,” McKinnon said over the phone on Friday. “Toward the end of the season I was more of a one-cut guy. At the beginning, I wasn’t doing anything different than I did the first two seasons. So after turning the page, working <a href=""> Jerick Mckinnon Youth Jersey</a> out this offseason, my mindset has been to come back strong, be at the best that I can be and produce at the level I know I can produce.”

With six months between season’s end and training camp’s open, offseason plans are an art form for NFL players and McKinnon has spent more than two months of his with the Kendrick Lamar of offseason workouts: Adrian Peterson.

McKinnon and Peterson have formed a bond over the past three seasons – which doesn’t always happen between aging superstar and up-and-comer, just ask Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. But A.P. was a McKinnon fan from Day 1.

“He’s pretty impressive and there’s not too many guys who impress me like that, especially rookies coming in,” Peterson told The Star Tribune back in 2014. “He’s been able to do some real good things in the offense, picking it up well and just his running style.”

In his rookie year, McKinnon impressively filled in for Peterson while the superstar was suspended, gaining 538 yards on 113 carries, then acted as a change-of-pace back in 2015.

“He took me in from the start, coming into the league, he taught me a lot,” McKinnon said. “I think my game is a little different from some of the other backs around the league and the things that I do. It’s always good to have somebody like that on your side supporting you, pushing you and just making me better overall as a player. I can’t thank him enough.”

As only he can, McKinnon succinctly summarized how Peterson’s absence will feel for everyone involved with the Vikings and their fans.

“It’s going to be weird,” he said, laughing.

现在即将成立的25岁的球员在后场有一个新的同伴。维京人在本赛季早些时候签署了前攻击拉脱维斯·穆雷(Latavius Murray)的攻略。去年,突击队利用默里作为三重奏组的一部分,获得了1,922码,在NFL中排名第六。

麦金农理解这是一个两冲打联盟。上个赛季,只有一次跑回了300次(Ezekiel Elliott),这是<a href=""> </A> 相对于2006年的时候有10个背上有300多名奔涌,所以它' s ^可能新的同事们都会看到充足的玩耍时间。 

“ 签署新合同后,我发短信给他,他似乎是一个很酷的人,所以我刚刚告诉他,我最后只想进来参加比赛,这样他就能很好的和他一起学习他,“ 麦金农说。“ 他‘ s ^被任命为一个职业杯,因此他’ 曾多次在联赛中取得成功。我' 很期待得到在那里,与他一起工作,对他竞争,了解他是怎么想对某些事情,让他的观点在某些情况下,并运行和剧本,这样的东西。“

随着他的合同在这个赛季之后出现,麦肯农需要明确表示,后场组合应该是50-50分或更好的方向。上个赛季,临时(现在全职)进攻协调员帕特·舒尔(Pat Shurmur)使用麦金农(McKinnon)作为传球比赛的一部分需要更长的时间。在最后六个星期,他共接受了43次接待中的31次。而在第三名,他仅仅是对萨姆·布拉德福德的检查,每场接收场均3.8码。

这一次,Shurmur得到实现一个剧本是“ 真完全了。维京人的进攻线应在2017年改善。<a href=""> http:// www 通过添加滑雪手Mike Remmers和Riley Reiff,他们比传球手更好,跑步比赛
