    There have been other rookies that blew the doors off the NFL when they arrived and then petered down to nothing early in their careers...albiet maybe not to the same extent as Peterson.
    Cadillac Williams anyone?

    Look at their stats...
    Caddilac was used as a power back.
    He had almost 300 carries and a 4.1 yard per car average. He had never had to do that before in college. He had always been a split back.

    Peterson had Just under 240 and a 5.6 average. peterson was used to being a primetime back and is not spliting carries. there situations are different. It's like comparing a Caddilac to a Ferrari(pun indented)
    Their games are just different.

    Re: Peterson has all the offseason motivation he'll need

    There were plenty of holds during the regular season that were much worse than those and not called.
    Honestly, I don't see why there is discussion over this.
    Everyone knows taht holding happens all the time, its just wether or not the Ref sees it and if it is bad enough.
    There are always going to be missed holding calls on both sides of every single game ever played in the NFL since the beginning of it's existence

    Boo hoo Bucket Head, boo hoo.
    In Petyton Manning's defense...it really did look like holding...2 counts of holding at that.
    That's no defense... I contend that holding can be called on almost every play in every game.
    As a vet with multiple MVP honors, he should know that he sounds like a *** complaining about honors in an all star game.
    "Maybe Barber and Westbrook signed off on that...." what kind of statement is that?
    Yeah, he was saying that it was agreed upon by the backs to let 'the kid' AD take most of the carries and 'look good'.
    Manning is thinking he looked awesome and then sat and let others play.
    He was discounting as much AD and NFC as possible.

    We play the AFC South this year, don't we? That Colts game should be a fun one. Hopefully someone tapes Manning's comments to AD's locker.

    Peyton is probably just pouty that his supposedly terrible QB brother beat the patriots in the superbowl this year and he didn't even win pro bowl MVP.

    i was not comparing the two, they are obviously very different backs.

    BloodyHorns had simply mentioned that there have been backs that have done excellent their rookie year then faded away, and I made mention to Cadillac Williams.
    Obviously he is nowhere near the level of talent that AD has, i was simply providing an example.

    Re: Peterson has all the offseason motivation he'll need

    I'm sure the kids got his own motivation..

    he sets his bar high even for himself. and i believe that his motivation, the coaching, and his understanding of the game will just improve and improve..

    the bigger ? for the NFL players that are non-vikings should be..


    how do we get an AD..
