    When you look at our career comparisons, when I played there, I had the advantage of having a much more balanced offensive attack.

    They could only afford to drop a safety down so much. We had Cris Carter and Randy Moss and Jake Reed and a number of other guys. When you put it in that context, it's even more impressive.
    Peterson could be better if the Vikings had a balanced attack. How many yards have been left on the table in his career because the Vikings could not pass out of an 8 man box?
