    HONOLULU -- Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson thinks he'll produce a 2,000-yard season. In fact, he thinks he'll do it in 2008....

    lol, I like how AD sets his bar high. There's nothing wrong with that.

    But realistically, our passing attack has to significantly improve if he wants to be one of the few RB's that has rushed for 2,000 yards or more.
    In the P.J.'s, my blend tape plays, bullets are strays
    Young bitches is grazed
    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped
    Plus the Island is packed
    From what I hear in all the stories when my peoples come back, black

    If he stays healthy I think this is achievable for him. The blocking should be better as well as the passing attack. He rushed for over a 1,000 in the first half last year, and he wasn't even the starter for the majority of those games. I expect he will have more yards than in 07 and hope he can set the nfl record.

    I just hope he stays healthy for all of next year and for the rest of his career in a while staying in a vikes jersey the whole time!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    No kidding, otherwise teams will just do what they did the last few games of the season and stack the box with 8-9 guys.
    Jackson has to greatly improve, as does the production from the WRs.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Re: Adrian Peterson predicting 2000-yard season

    for that to happen we need a qb thats a threat to throw the ball..if we do find one, then i think we can seriously look at 2500 yards rushing
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Re: Adrian Peterson predicting 2000-yard season

    I did a brief search, couldn't find the thread/article from right after the draft on his goals for his rookie season.
    It would be nice if someone remembers the name of that thread.
    I would like to revisit those goals.
    I think that most people thought those goals were lofty considering he wasn't even the starter.

    The Kid has confidence and he should.

    He predicted ROY after he got drafted.
    I think that when he sets a goal, he makes it.
