    And Alfred Anderson too?In 1975 Chuck Foreman led the N.F.L with receptions,I wonder when that has been done sense where a RB has lead the N.F.L in receptions.

    not even close, two distincly different running styles.
    Barry would dance, cut, and make you miss.
    AD would find a hole, make a cut, run over 2 guys, then was gone.

    When Adrian's career is complete he will probably smash all the Viking rushing records. But right now the best all around back we've ever had was Chuck Foreman.

    "Best running back" goes to AD.
    We'll see how the longevity and everything else goes but there's no other Vikings' running back I would want on my team than the Adrian Peterson we've seen thus far.

    It's Chuck, but I don't like the no love for Tommy Mason and Bill Brown.

    I wouldn't even include AD on the list yet. I don't see how anyone can.

    We've only seen him play 1 year & not much this year yet. If he continues on his pace, it will be a different story. But for now, not just yet.

    How many people would have picked Michael Bennett in 2002 after his 1,647, 6 TD season in 2002?

    How many people would have picked Terry Allen after 1994 after averaging 1,429 yards & 11.5 TD's per season in 1992 & 1994?
