    Mr. 2000

    Congratulations Mr. 2000!

    While AD didnít beat Dickersonís record, falling short by just 9 yards, he did however not only surpass the 2,000 yard milestone, but out averaged Dickerson in YPC with 6.0 to Dickersonís 5.6.

    Dickerson still holds the single season rushing record for regular + post season play with 2212.

    AD 2097 +?

    Since Peterson is averaging around 208 or so per game against the Pack this year, this one seems pretty well assured.

    I'm sure, though, that once again he would rather have the win than the record, just like the rest of us.

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

    Sadly no. Terrell Davis set that record in 1998. 2008 regular season yards followed by 468 post season yards. 2476! Peterson needs 380 yards to break the real single season record.

    He'll probably break it in either the divisional game or the NFC Championship then.

    One thing about Peterson being 9 yards short. Dickerson did it in 379 attempts. Peterson came up short in 348 attempts. Had Peterson had 379 attempts he would have been around 2270 yards.

    I can beat the dead horse and say Peterson should have been allowed a few more rushes against Texas. Unless his groin was bothering him, it would have been the right thing to do with a player that was close to a major record.

    I can understand why Peterson was limited on his early season touches, but having to break 200 yards once again against the Packers was asking a lot knowing that Clay Matthews was back and likely going to run blitz on many plays.
