    Nightmare scenarios

    [img width=450 height=252]http://assets.espn.go.com/photo/2008/1029/nfl_u_peterson_580.jpg[/img]

    Adrian Peterson digested the news slowly. Someone had just walked over and informed him that another NFL player had made the rarest of admissions: He is scared to tackle him.

    This is no small confession in the ultramacho world of professional football, where pain is both an honor and virtue and fear is rendered dormant by inactivity. But Dallas' Nick Folk -- albeit a kicker, but still an actual NFL player who wears a uniform and everything -- was willing to break with the usual stereotype during a recent conversation in the Cowboys' locker room.

    "The only time I've been truly scared of anything is getting ready to kick off and seeing Adrian Peterson standing back there," Folk said. "Most return men are just trying to run by you, but Peterson's the type of guy who'd love to run over me and then run by me. When Peterson's standing back there, I don't have a great game plan for stopping him."
    Good article, loved these quotes about AD

    We just have to hope he can stay humble towards the game. He is freakishly strong

    Just imagine All Day in an offense with a passing game that even remotely scared anyone!

    Re: Nightmare scenarios

    That was a hilarious article! The part about CB Finnegan fearing Runyan was funny. Who wouldn't fear a 6-7, 330-pound lineman coming straight at you? lol.

    A great read, thanks for the post "Bkfldviking"!!

    No, I'm saying we should get rid of Chilly before Minny loses All Day.
