Bears have given up two consecutive 100+ yard rushers. That could be easily three by the time we play them in two weeks.

Should be in the MVP talk at this point.

he is. it's getting mentioned by the commentators, at least.


There's really no QB or WR who's having a godly season so far so he does have a legit chance.


Outside of Peyton Manning. At this point, I suspect that Peyton will get MVP and Adrian could get Offensive Player of the Year.

Funny as both could win comeback player of the year as well.


They were talking about it on First Take this morning. I was excited to listen just out of curiosity then Skip said he'd take Doug Martin over AP and then I was reminded why I don't watch first take anymore.
bayliss has always been an AP hater for reasons unbeknown to me. That's about the 4th of 5th different RB they've had conversation about vs. AP. He takes the other RB every time. Goes to show how dominate AP has been over the last few years. Also goes to show that I need to stop watching that show cuz bayliss.is a tool

Skip Bayless says ridiculous things just to get attention. That's his job.

Adrian Peterson, the prophet:

http://www.mensfitness.com/leisure/entertainment/all-day-adrian-peterson?page=2

"MF: Looking into the future where do you see yourself in five years?

Peterson: Five years? I see myself being the best running back in the league. That's not being cocky or anything, just confident, knowing what it takes to be able to have that label and just going after it. I'm putting the work in. I feel like that's something I can accomplish here in the near future."

Peterson, testifying in his home town while the Vikings are on their bye week, was one of five people to speak before the unusual and surprising grand jury set up after an agreement between prosecutors and Peterson's side.

After hearing from Peterson, three employees of the Bayou Club where Peterson was arrested and one of the arresting officers, the grand jury returned a "no bill," which means Peterson's case will be dismissed. The official dismissal is expected to be filed Wednesday morning by prosecutors.

"They didn't even answer the question whether he did or didn't, it was a much bigger statement than that," Hardin said. "They found that there was no probable cause for him to even been arrested or charged. Therefore, none of that should have even happened, and his case is over."

I knew my love for Vince Young was misplaced when i realized Skip liked him, Young had no shot...

Fran Tarkenton: "I saw Gale Sayers come into the league, and he was something we had never seen before. The way he ran -- the best way to describe it is simply to say he was a beautiful runner. Even though his career was short, his greatness was so obvious that he went straight to the Hall of Fame.

Later on, I also played against another great Chicago Bears running back, Walter Payton. But in my whole playing career, the best I saw was Jim Brown. In my first five years in the NFL, he led the league in rushing four times. And that was after leading the league in his first four years before my rookie year! He was simply unstoppable.

I watched Eric Dickerson, Barry Sanders, Emmitt Smith. Today, we watch top runners such as Ray Rice, Arian Foster and LeSean McCoy.

Since his career began, we've known Peterson was one of the great running backs of this era. But this year, he is proving he belongs in the conversation with Sayers, Payton, Brown and others as one of the greatest of any era -- and he still has a lot of football left in him to do even more!

I've never seen a back run with his style, even with all the great players I've watched. He has the speed to run away from people in the open field. But he also has the power to run through defenses. When I watch him play, I get the feeling he believes he can score on every play. He runs almost with a disdain for defenders who think they, mere mortals, can tackle him."

I truly hope that, in a decade or so (after he's retired), that we can all realize and respect what a special talent he has been. He's the Randy Moss of RBs without the lackadaisical attitude.

Per Rotoworld:
Quote:
Dr. James Andrew was astonished to find that Adrian Peterson's knee had as much wear and tear as a "newborn baby" when he operated on the freakish tailback late last December.
"I can't believe it," Andrews told Peterson's parents. "For this guy to have played as much football as he's played his whole life, and not to have hardly any wear and tear, it's incredible. I've never seen a football player, especially one who runs and cuts as much as he does, with a knee in that condition." Peterson gives the doctor credit, but insists he's just different -- "my family and genetics. Just how my body is built." Rotoworld's Pat Daugherty suggests Peterson's knees are made of rare metals found on a comet that crashed to Earth in a Norwegian forest.

Thanks, and did you catch the last line? An amusing almost-Kryptonian reference. As someone who is close to becoming a med student, I would love to learn more about the make-up of Peterson's knees. Dr. Andrews has seen nothing like it before, and he is one of the most highly sought-after surgeons associated with professional sports. It's incredible.

Peterson cites his genetics, which obviously has bearing here.

but the oddest thing is that he had an older brother (who has died) who everyone felt was the real athlete of the family.

Shocked
