Vikings RB Adrian Peterson topped 2,000 career yards, becoming the fastest player to reach the milestone in NFL history (21 games)

An incredible player, cant believe he fell to #8. im just happy the Packers didnt get him

Special player...it would be interesting to see him playing on an offense that can pass the ball.

He fell to #7. If he had fallen to #8, he would be a Falcon.

:( so close...

Then the falcons would have been half good last year and you wouldn't have Matty Ice, so take the turn out. lol

I'm pretty sure Eric Dickerson did it faster, unless it took him 6 games to rush for 192 yards in the season where he set the all time record for rushing yards.

Oh lol.

Someone find the game logs of the first five games of the 84 season for Dickerson!

Yeah, i'm pretty sure Eric Dickerson did it faster.

This is true. I would rather have Matty Ice than Adrian Peterson anyway.

Guys, the NFL was invented in 1995, remember? ED never existed.

Worst year ever in the draft.... The Lions get Calvin Johnson, a beast and the Vikings then get Adrian Peterson, another beast. Thats about where it ends tho as neither the Vikings or Lions have beat the Packers since getting them. The Bears also got Olsen that year right? So thats what like the best WR, RB, and TE out of that draft. Thank god we got Justin Harrell though....lol, I still have hope for him.

Tell me about it.

1. Russell. In my opinion, the most physically talented QB in the league. I am glad we dont have him, but still.
2. Calvin Johnson. Hometown prospect. Still wish we would have traded up for him, but its all right. Best WR prospect ever.
3. Joe Thomas. All Pro by his 2nd year? We all know how good he is.
4. Gaines Adams. Decent rookie year. Showing the makings of an elite pass rusher in the NFL in his 2nd.
5. Levi Brown. Good RT. Uh. Dont know too much about him.
6. Laron Landry. Next great (if not already) safety. Takes away the deep pass.
7. Adrian Peterson. We all know him.
8. Jamaal Anderson. Did not have a sack until his 22nd game.

Sigh. Just look at that talent before him. And we got stuck with him.

One of the biggest reasons he went to Oklahoma was to win a national championship. Ironically, he got blown the **** out in that game and Texas won the next year. I think you win.

iirc anderson made a couple of big plays in the bears game, i havent watched him much but he seems to have a lot of potential

I think in time Anderson will be a better weapon on the Dline than Gaines Adams. If he can cut some weight to re-invigorate his explosiveness off the snap he'd be much further a long. I loved him coming out and thought he could be doing what Tuck is now doing but better by next season.

From what an insider friend had told me was that Mack Brown invited him to break the tie in his head (from going to Texas or OU) by bringing him to the Red River Shootout. Too bad for us, that was the year that we started Chance Mock over Vince Young, and we got blown out 65-13 :(

You ended up with a national title out of the deal. You'll survive.

Of course :D

I hope the same happens to Darrell Scott. I hope he gets hit behind the LOS every run he ever plays.

LOL yeah well it's easier to say that since we got Michael Turner.

Although what's up with the Burner in the last couple of games?

Not deserving of its' own thread but yesterday Clinton Portis became the second back in league history only to OJ Simpson to rush for 120+ 5 consecutive games more than once in a career.

Clinton Portis went over 2000 yards in his 21st Game as did Earl Campbell.
