Just want to say Congrats to Adrian Peterson on a great season. It was the greatest season I’ve ever seen in my brief 17 years on this earth. This guy deserves the MVP and Comeback player of the year awards. 10 games of 100 yards rushing or more, who’s doing that?!!!
If you pay attention to how defenses are playing him they sometimes put 8 or 9 guys in the box and they still can't stop him. Saying AP looked like he was in a video game would be an insult he was beyond video game like. He was what the Minnesota Vikings pay him to be and that is a franchise player and catalyst for this offense.
AP suffered a knee injury last season that left his career in doubt. Last year at this time he had just got Knee surgery. People questioned if he could ever perform at a high level again. I remember in my Fantasy football draft I had a chance to get him but questioned his ability coming off knee surgery, AP made me and many other people look stupid.
Before the season started many people including myself picked the Vikings to be one
One of the worst teams in the league. Especially playing in the NFC North with the Bears, Packers and Lions many assumed it would be a long year for the Vikings. If you told someone before the year started that the Minnesota Vikings would make the playoffs you probably would have got checked in to the nearest mental institution by the closest of your friends.
Adrian Peterson was the most dominant player in the league this year. He was the Vikings best player in the most important games. If you look at the December schedule for them it consists of The Packers (twice), Texans in Houston, Bears, Rams. You look at that and you most likely say to yourself “The Viking would be lucky to go 2-3 in that stretch”. Well they went 4-1 and with the seasons on the line in toughest stretch of their schedule. AP was great in every single game. In those 5 games he totaled 861 yards and 5 touchdowns. He was the best players in the biggest games for a team with an average QB and limited offensive weapons. Hid year was historic he fell less then a 1st down of breaking Eric Dickerson's single season rushing record. No disrespect to Peyton Manning but if Adrian Peterson doesn’t win the MVP award then it's a travesty.
