And I don’t care…
What a historic and amazing season by one of the greatest NFL players to step on the football field. The way he was running yesterday, I thought for sure the record would be his. And if the Vikings weren’t playing for a chance at the playoffs, I’m convinced it would have been as they would have run the ball instead of going for a couple of those field goals.
Peterson just accomplished what may have been the greatest offensive season I have ever witnessed in my lifetime. Coming off of a late season ACL injury, many experts didn’t thing he’d play at all this season… and if he did, he certainly wouldn’t be effective. ADP just proved that he is not human and the laws of injury, recovery time, and logic do not apply. He probably will not win MVP… b/c he doesn’t play QB. He might not even win Comeback Player of the Year b/c his name is not Peyton Manning. But it is my opinion that he deserves both.
I can only hope that Peterson plays another 5 years and my oldest son gets a chance to see him run live.
