Peterson Is Football’s Best Pure Runner
Andy writes "Adrian Peterson is still the best pure runner in
football. True, far too many of his runs last season failed to get back to the
line of scrimmage, but that’s what happens when you put a superstar running back
behind three backup linemen and with a quarterback who doesn’t threaten the
field vertically. What makes Peterson special is his violent downhill burst
paired with explosive lateral agility. No player moves left and right in
confined spaces with such balance and force."

Q: You’re still a run-first team.
A: Yeah. It’s going to go
through Adrian (Peterson). That’s how it is. But we’re trying to be a little
more diverse in some of the things we do.
Q: How close is Adrian to
A: He’s close. (The hamstring strain is) real slight. Real, real
slight. He can do a lot of things. It’s just I don’t want him full-go yet. He’s
probably 95 percent or something like that.
Q: Can he still handle the
workload like he has at age 31?
A: Oh, yeah. He’s 6% body fat. He’s a stud,
man. And he works. And he’s excited about it. I think he’s excited about the
changes we made on the offensive line, the new guys we brought in.

Adrian Peterson says boring offseason could mean earlier retirement
"That's it," Peterson told ESPN. "Training camp, going through the grind, OTAs and all that -- that will definitely be the deciding factor. Physically, body-wise, I'll be good. It's just mentally -- like with OTAs, I'm out there practicing, I'm going, I'm putting in work. But it's so repetitive that it's more suited toward the young guys and getting them into the system. It gets kind of boring."

Adrian Peterson leads the NFL in Rushing!
Against the Chargers this week he
gained 126 yards on 20 carries (6.3 YPC) as well as scoring his first two
touchdowns of the season. He gained 109 of those 126 yards after contact and
forced a ridiculous 10 missed tackles in those carries. Peterson has never been
the most complete back in the world, and his receiving skills are more a case of
being just good enough to get the ball in his hands and let him run again, but
he added 58 receiving yards on a couple of receptions out of the backfield to
finish the day with 184 yards from scrimmage. via
