Adrian Peterson Remind Me Of

Terrell Davis. Very stong, can break tackles and has decent breakaway speed. Terrell Davis was a beast before he tore his ACL in 1999.

yea me too, Davis was the best back before his injury. Sad that he wont get into the Hall of Fame because he got injured right before his prime.

He kind of reminds me of a bigger walter payton. Granted, I have only seen highlights of Payton, but with him running guys over and just plain out running people, Peterson does alot of the same stuff.

I'm an OU fan so I've watched him for a few years now. He's just gotten better and better each year no matter what injury puts him out for the season. He still comes back the next year and dominates. I'm going to say he's the best in the league without a doubt. Once he's got a few more years and more experience we'll talk about the best of all time...

thats a tall order, Payton is number one. Fuck Emmitt Smith, take that dancing with the stars trophy and shove it up your diamonded ass. He might hold the record for the most rushing yards in nfl, but he's no Top 5 running back.

hahaha agreed. I like Emmit but I'm not arguing about him, because he was kind of washed up at the end. But AD will soon be better than Payton in my opinion. I've never seen anyone run like him. Ever. So not now, but one day I believe he's going to be the best.

AD is almost an exact copy of Eric Dickerson. Same upright running style, likes to lay a hit just as much as juking a guy out of his socks & of course speed.

He does run alot like Eric Dickerson too. I dunno, no matter who he reminds you of, everyone that steps on the field or watches him play knows he is a beast. If injuries don't finish his career early, he is definitely getting at least 13-15k yards on the ground for his career.

He's a beast for sure.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

I would take Earl Campbell in his prime over Peterson any day, now that dude was a beast, he had thighs the size of tree trunks. I will give Peterson some credit, this year he looks pretty unstopable, I just hope he stays healthy.

I grew up watchin Campbell at UT. He got to Houston, and Bum Phillips almost killed him: Earl up the middle, Earl off tackle, Earl around the end...they beat his ass up.

Earl was an effin' beast in his prime. Always see the clip in my head of him lowering the boom as an Oiler on that Rams defender then running out his jersey.
It's at 1:30 in this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxugRBWN8gw

AD is a bad, bad man. No question. Power, speed, agility, he has it all. Just thought I'd throw a link up for some of the younger crowd who might not be familiar with Earl Campbell.

Notice how Campbell made his touchdown, put the ball down, and walked away. What an interesting concept. Also, that hit with him and #32 for the raiders...epic meeting of two heavy hitters. I can't remember the guy from the raiders, but he is in the hall of fame. He was a bad man.

Earl really only had 4 good years in the NFL before his decline. The hits he took and gave took a toll on his body for sure.

TD was amazing. I believe it was micro-fracture surgery that ended his career (or at least made the return to old form impossible.)
