Peterson, and its not close for me. At this point, as well as coming out as a prospect. I am probably alone, but coming out as a prospect i would have taken Peterson no doubt. Only question was durability for me. His character puts it over the edge.

I'm a Jet fan who wasn't hopng for McFadden

A 20 year old Kid got in some fights, and maybe he likes pu$$y too much. Big Deal

I like Peterson i thought he was awesome last year but you can't ignore his injury problems. If he keeps taking leg injuries he will slow down very quickly. I Believe McFadden will have more longevity and Similar if not better numbers.
I may be a little biased
We shall see.

Justin Fargas is gonna be Oakland number 1 back this year. He is gonna get most of the carriers McFadden will get some touches but will be more involved in the passing game. He should have around 60 catches..

i really have no idea why people think mcfadden was a better prospect coming out of college. change of direction ability, ball security, character issues, and the formation he ran out of in college are all concerns when talking about him. the only negatives you have on peterson were his health and receiving skills.

we dont know if Peterson's wonderous season was a fluke. I wnt to see him do it again and again which i doubt he does. I expect him to be good a top 10 pro bowler maybe but teams will prepare better for him, if his legs take more pounding he will slow down unless he learns to use his pads. I cant see AD matching his rookie year. I will say McFadden has a shot at being just as good or better but I wont say anything about him because the kid still has to play. I would still take McFadden over AD

Of course you would.

I really don't see one logical reason why anyone would take McFadden over Peterson right now.

I think that if Adrian Peterson was on the Raiders you would be arguing for him but he isn't so you go with what you got.... McFadden.

McFadden has been more Productive and less injury prone. And he possesses just as much Physical Talent. If McFadden Came out in 2007 he would have been picked before Peterson, because he is a better prospect.

Vision=McFadden
Upper Body Power = Tied
Lower Body Power= Peterson
Speed=McFadden
Acceleration=McFadden
Offensive Line= Peterson
Blocking Scheme= McFadden
College Production= McFadden
Combine measurables = Slight egde too McFadden for the speed

After Peterson's injury his Production dropped Tremendously
Pre Injury- the first 11 he had 169 Carries 1081 Yards 6.3 YPC
Post injury- the last 5 games he had 69 Carries for 260 Yards, 3.7 YPC

This guy has big injury concerns

All things being equal I would have to go with the one year vet over the rookie. Personally I don't care who's better I just hope Dmac helps us gets a few more wins.

And just to clarify something, I think Run DMC is a hell of a back and he will be a beast in the NFL, but when u look at the O-Lines of the Vikes and Raiders, thats not even a contest. And a RB can't run anywhere without an O-Line, so thats the reason for the my comment above.

Definitely Peterson, especially if jackson/booty can make the vertical game a threat. teams stacked the box against them all day last year and he still was unstoppable.

I think Dmac will lose some carries to Fargas too.
