After 9 games, Adrian Peterson leads the league in rushing with 1015 yards. With 7 games left, it is not impossible to think that he can get to that crazy mark of 2000 rushing yards in one season. He needs 985 yards to get to that mark. Factoring in the needed yardage, and the games left to be played, AP would need to average 140.7 yards per game. Although that seems out of reach, he could reach that mark if he has a game like he did today, or one like he did against San Diego last year. I think it will come down to the Lions game. That will make or break his quest to 2000. What do you think? Will 2008 be the year he hits that 2000 yard mark? Discuss

He won't get it but he will come damn close.

And not with Gus Frerotte at QB

You gotta look at durability and the fact that at least one of these teams will shutdown our run game.

I agree that 1800+ is more realistic than 2000.

There's some defences in there to go against and as much as I'd like to see him run up on the Bears and Lions I can't see him getting those sorts of numbers.
If we've clinched a berth for post season action before the end of the regular season then he won't be running anywhere as much as he is now.
Would be nice but can't see it happening this year - maybe 1750 yds tops.

Look at the teams we faced and where they rank in the ratings against the rush. Then look at where the teams we have yet to face rank.
