Default Adrian Peterson

The guy is a real thrill to watch play, and I can't recall the last time I watched a live game when a player was that much better than everyone else on the field. Hindsight is 20/20, but trading up to pick Peterson in '07doesn't seem as crazy as I once thought it.

Serious man crush.

I remember discussing who to pick in the 2006 draft and the question was asked , who would you take Peterson or Bush ? Most folks would have took Bush .

Yeah, my friends who aren't texans fans were sure to call / text me about that 75 yard scamper of his.

I replied "umm...that's a man amongst boys in that backfield. He does that to everybody. There's a reason he was the top fantasy pick dumbasses."


I still remember salivating at the mouth during the draft he came out when He very nearly fell to us... then cursing out minny for taking him at 8.

Not to discount AP's freakish athletic ability, but Ron Dayne could've run through the hole on that play. Meaning, any freakin RB in the League would've made a play through that hole.

Just a random observation, carry on.

He went 7th, but I would have loved to trade up and get him. He's easily the best RB in the league, and will be for years to come.

Ron Dayne would've taken 3 steps then fallen forward. (I still love Ron Dayne though)

He might end up being one of the greatest running backs ever by the time he is done.
