    Ok, I hope you all take this the right way. Don't get me wrong, I love Adrian Peterson. He is the "Man" ! He went to Oklahama, having grown up in Texas and wanting to go to Texas and then be a Cowboy
    :P, because his dad was in prison in Oklahoma, and the only games they showed on TV in Oklahoma prison were OU games, so "All Day" went to OU. I have a ton of respect for that. I love the guy...

    ... and yet...

    Some lingering questions:
    a. Can you be the nr. 1 running back in the NFL, if you sit on 3rd down, and who block well and catch very well
    ?
    b. If you can't catch or block well, can you be nr. 1 ?

    Is Peterson better than backs like Jones-Drew and Tomlinson and Forte, who are in on 3rd down ?

    Please don't kill me for posting this. If you prove I am wrong, I will gladly admit it...
    If you could pick one running back who would you pick?

    Not yet.

    Does it really matter how someone ranks Peterson?
    Does the hype win games?
    Did Earl Campbell and Eric Dickerson win Superbowls?

    The best back this year isn't the best back from two years ago, and he won't likely be the best back two seasons from now.
    It's a hard game.

    Re: Is Peterson really Nr. 1 ?

    Nr is not an abbreviation for number. It would be #1 or No. 1. Sorry to be a grammar nazi about that, I think I've been good about it lately it's just that one got to me for some reason.


    And I think his skills as a runner are strong enough to make up for his supposed lack of hands(not that he's had much opportunity to catch the ball) and other faults.

    Re: Is Peterson really Nr. 1 ?

    Put it this way, you are a defense, and it is the final drive, and you have to stop their RB. Who would you least like to play against in that situation ? I can think of a few running backs: Westbrook, Brandon Jacobs, Jones-Drew, Turner, Forte, Marion Barber. Peterson would also be hard to stop, but I think he is easier to take out of his game than the others.

    Of course, I also think that that will change with Favre in purple, becuase to be fair to Peterson, defenses last year just stacked the box against us.

    Re: Is Peterson really Nr. 1 ?

    YES!!!

    He is without a doubt the #1 back.
    He is in a league of his own the way he runs.
    Nobody today compares at all, and the only player who ever ran with as much shear power was Earl Campbell who did not have nearly as much speed and elusiveness.

    As for catching, I think he's just fine, especially for a RB.


    Blocking...he could be better but he is improving.
    And the way he runs, does plenty to make up for it.
    He is a PHENOM.


    Answer this simple question... Would you trade AD for any RB in this league?
    The answer is without a doubt...no.
    "There are 3 things that sell in America:
    Violence, sex, and drugs.
    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    Re: Is Peterson really Nr. 1 ?

    So, if you sit on 3rd sometimes...you are not #1?

    Please watch more football and other teams this year.
    Then come back and ask the same question.

    You should have had a space before the first parenthesis.
    If you're going to pick on somebody, you better have an absolutely perfect post.
    :P
    ;D

    Re: Is Peterson really Nr. 1 ?

    I think this question is best suited for Al Harris. I think you should ask him. He's the best player in the NFL. It's not even debatable.
    I bet you could use a cool one huh Clark...Now you're talkin Eddie...
