Adrian Peterson Says Eric Dickerson Should Be Nervous

Adrian Peterson is in the running for Comeback Player of the Year, any offensive player of the year award, and if his team had a better record, possibly the NFL MVP.

Peterson’s focus though is squarely on Eric Dickerson and his single season rushing record.  Peterson has 1,600 yards rushing with 3 games left.

Peterson is on pace to rush for 1,960 yards on the season, possibly 2,000.   Peterson as I mentioned earlier has his sights set on Dickerson’s 2,106, and as Peterson told Dan Patrick this morning, Dickerson should be very nervous.

Patrick asked Peterson if he feels he has a shot to break Dickerson’s mark.

“I do,” Peterson said. “The guys in front of me are doing a great job of blocking. I feel it’s possible.”

Patrick then asked Peterson if he felt Dickerson should be nervous about the prospects of him breaking his record.

I think so,”

I think Adrian Peterson’s comeback from his torn ACL is beyond remarkable.  It’s inspiring and amazing.
