RB Adrian Peterson has already broken/tied numerous NFL and
team records in only 8 games as a Viking and is pushing to break several
more. In Week 9 vs. San Diego, Peterson broke the NFL record for
the most rushing yards in a single game when he rushed for 296
yards and 3 scores against the Chargers.
That performance shattered his previous record-setting feat three
weeks earlier at Chicago when he broke the Vikings record for rushing
yards in a single game with 224; the previous record was held by Chuck
Foreman (200). Peterson also tied a team record vs. San Diego and
at Chicago with his 3 rushing TDs in each game, only the 10th and
11th times it has happened in Vikings’ history. He also set a Vikings
record as the fi rst player to have 2 runs of 50+ in a game when he rushed
for a 73-yard TD and a 62-yard TD.

Simply Amazing. 8 games into this young kid's career, and when you sit back and look at what he's accomplished already... it's really staggering. Cheers... here's to at least 5 more years of this!!!

AD being helped off the field with a possible knee injury.


Not to pour salt on any wounds here...
I just want to make the point here that this is the reason why he was passed down to slot 7.

He went down with a thigh bruse, and Childress even said he was running up and down the sideline and was ready to go back in.
So I don't really think this is one of those injury worries, happens to anyone.

And his knee was a problem in college?

Newsflash:
anyone who takes a shot to the knee like that is going to get hurt.

Go back to watching your Cowboys and salivating over Roy.

Ahh, your troubles do go deeper than being a troll.
I never thought you would admit to reading such trash.
"I read it for the articles"
Does your Mom believe that?

You could tell he was better on the sideline.

Not much to see here.

Hey man.
I'm not a troll, i've got better things to do.
I've already stated this.
My comments have been informative and helpful to the content on each thread i've commented on.
I'd like to think i brought up several ideas and facts recently that were relevant and helpful and none of them were bashing vikings or AD. I add content.

OH, and also...
it was his knee.


Peterson's day ended with a painful flip, a sprained right knee and an MRI exam scheduled for Monday.
