    I saw OJ play many times. OJ was a straight ahead, stand up runner with exceptional breakaway speed. Despite the highlites you watched, he didn't cut very much.

    Now Peterson is an upright runner like OJ. And he has the speed to take it to the house like OJ.
    But peterson can cut on a dime, OJ never could. And Peterson has power that OJ never had.

    If you want to compare Peterson to someone from the past, I would compare him to the best two sport professional athelete ever. Bo Jackson.

    Bo had a short career due to a devastating hip injury. But he was the running back that AD reminds me of.
    100% Agreed.

    Incredible. Thank you for that. I hadn't seen him run for years.
    The first Monday Night Football gane I was allowed to stay up for was his run into the tunnel against the Poopbirds

    Sweet.
    Now we just have to make sure he stays away from sharp objects and ex-wives.

    Agreed.

    Bo was my favorite RB ever. He had speed and power that you just don't see. I think he may have been even more powerful and faster(By a thin margin) than AD, but AD has better cutting ability and is more elusive.

    As far as OJ, it is hard to compare them without the knife and glove. Maybe if you can get some video of him running through an airport with a gold jacket.

    Peterson does remind me of Bo Jackson with less speed and a little bit less power.




    Although a lot of people seem to think that Bo Jackson was on the roids'

    so he's like a frankenback?
    a combination of everyone.
    Or perhaps, Peterson looks like Peterson, and all future backs will be compared to him.

    yes! he was born in the vikings labitory by professor wilf.
    he collected genes from other NFL players and put them into one player known as adrian peterson! also known as the frakenback as you mentioned
