    Nice picture there too:

    AD always has the 2 on his jersey nearly scraped off.

    I wonder if it's from him rubbing the ball against his chest when he runs. If so that's pretty intense.

    I think it's from people reaching and grabbing for anything they can to bring him down... it's adorable how opposing teams think they can tackle him.

    I always figured it was from the ground up tire fibers that comprise the field turf.


    Chuch.

    I've thought that too, but I'm pretty sure the numbers are like that even before the first snap of the game. I know a lot of the guys (at least in college, i'm assuming the NFL too) will either use tape or something else to hold their jersey tight to their shoulder pads making it harder for defensive players to get ahold of them. Maybe it is something like that? Mixture of both? who knows.

    That pic is from the San Diego game, so whatever that stuff is, he's got 296 yards worth of it on that jersey. Well, since that jersey was sent to the Hall of Fame, maybe one of us can go there to take a closer look and report back.

    Re: Adrian Peterson in Jim Brown Territory

    I like the football rubbing theory.
    Explains why he's got them on both sides and a little heavier on his right side then his left.

    The way that man runs I don't doubt that he clutches the ball hard enough to knock a little pig out of it.

    Well said, excellent post my friend
    ;D
    (Marrdo moment)

    I think i've used pretty much that exact same phrase in a game where he was running down the field and a defender dove on him and AD carried him another 5 yards on his back before he went down
