They NEVER got past discussing how good A.P. is, to talk about the game, and who would win. So,.....apparently, they think that The Packers will find no way to stop him, and The Vikings will win the game!

If I had the ability, I'd make a video of all of Adrian Petersons carries from this year, and spend a loooong Sunday afternoon reliving his season. I know the season isn't over but I'm already looking forward to next season to see what he can do.

That was very, very high praise from some very, very good ballplayers.

There’s a way Adrian Peterson can come for Eric Dickerson's record without waiting until September. Peterson can make an assault on the single-game postseason rushing record of 248 yards.

Held by, you guessed it, Eric Dickerson.

Dr. James Andrews is the renowned orthopedic surgeon many athletes call when they need their knees repaired. He put Adrian Peterson's left knee back together after Peterson tore anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in December 2011.



Are even you amazed at what Adrian Peterson has done?

Dr. Andrews: "He has defied all odds. Somebody asked me about him a bunch of different times with all he's been able to accomplish. My pat answer is, "If you operate on the right athlete, it makes you look pretty darn good as a physician." Adrian was that genetic athlete who could do what he's done. There are a few I've treated. One of them was Bo Jackson. Bo was a natural athlete. He didn't have to lift weights growing up. Adrian Peterson is like that. I was a nervous wreck watching him play game after game this season. I was on the Washington Redskins' sideline when the Vikings played them, and every time he'd get tackled I'd shudder. He'd get up and be OK. He kept on ticking and ticking. He's amazing, absolutely amazing. He had a really good therapist working with him in Houston during the offseason, Russ Paine, and the trainer with the Minnesota Vikings, Eric Sugarman, managed him perfectly. I sent Sugarman a text saying he should be very proud."


Did Peterson return a lot quicker than most athletes?

Dr. Andrews: "Running backs don't come back within the first year like that in the NFL. They may come back and play a little bit. They don't do what he did. Nobody's ever done that if you look at the statistics of players returning to the NFL. We did a study, running backs are the hardest to get back, period. The average NFL player only about a little over 50 percent are still playing after two years. We say we have 90 to 90-plus percent success with knee surgeries (in non-NFL cases). But we're talking about playing in the NFL. It's not 90 percent, believe me."


Were you rooting for Peterson to break Dickerson's record?

Dr. Andrews: "Oh, hell, yeah."

Nice read, VD.

It really is spectacular how somebody can almost break an NFL record of that magnitude a year after surgery.

I'm waiting for VikingsWorld to come out with his. The music should at least be better.

LOL

Man, my whole week has been off. I've been confused the entire week (some would say for far longer than that) about what day it is.

Between working Monday, Tuesday being a holiday, taking Wednesday off for my birthday (which then made Thursday feel like Monday), and now with football on Saturday, I'm all discofumbubobulated.

Thanks for setting me straight. Smile
