So, Adrian Peterson is going to be like the 2nd player taken

Postby 34=Sweetness » Sun Oct 14, 2007 2:53 pm

He just absolutely obliterated my Bears today ( :~( ). And he looked amazing doing it. Is this kid going to be the second, maybe even first player taken next year? Because he looks downright divine right now.

I proposed a trade to get ADP by giving my Westy... then I cancelled it.

The great thing about AP is not only can he run, but he can catch very well too. This combo will make him a great back in this league for a long time

What's funny, is the season isn't even over.

If AD had received even half of Chester's 22 carries today he likely would've broken the single game rushing record.

ADP is a monster. That's all that really needs to be said. There are very few athletes gifted with his size, speed, and power. He was breaking tackles and juking the bears Safeties out of their damn shoes all day today. He needs the ball more.

yea, dude is a stud. the funny thing is (as an aside ... I am still outscoring the guy who had him and the baltimore D today). But was jamal lewis ever consensus one or two? He had some absoloute monster games, and as far as I can recall, it was stil marshall pualk/priest holmes and sometimes Kurt Warner thrown in, along with ricky williams and james.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

I think it was on ESPN radio earlier, they stated:

"People have been asking if Adrian Peterson is going to be the next Reggie Bush. Right now, Reggie Bush is going to be wishing he were Adrian Peterson".

naw, jlews highest ADP was around 5 the year after he blew up.

id say this is a bit different. ADP is already on track to surpass jlews numbers (specifically TDs), and thats with splitting the load. jlew was the full time back. taking that into consideration, petersons ceiling is way higher than jamals ever was due to the fact that chester could at any time get hurt or be used less...which could make petersons numbers even more insane. jamal was pretty much used to his full potential in his monster season.


i have to say though, the way peterson runs does remind me a lot of jamal that year...power and speed. the kid has skills.
