Adrian Peterson - The Next Bo Jackson?
Personally I think he is the best athlete in the running back position since Bo. But sometimes I feel like he is doomed to suffer the same fate - catastrophic injury cutting his hall of fame potential short.
Just too big, too fast and too explosive - something has to give.

I hear you. He's a monster. You also have to look at the fact that all of Minnesota's opposing defenses should be doing nothing but looking for the run, because of their ****ty pass offense.
He is definately a bad dude. That would be awesome if he broke Dickerson's rookie and season record.

He very well could be but as Bill Parcells likes to say, lets hold off on putting him in Canton just yet.

The guy has freakish physical ability. I haven't seen a RB with that many physical tools since Bo Jackson or even Christian Okoye. I've been actively watching football since 1987 so don't crucify me if I left someone out.

Teams can stack 8 men in the box against him all day and not get burned by a passing attack. They still cant stop him. Urlacher and Merriman both said it wasn't that they werent in the correct defensive scheme to stop him, they just could not physically stop him.
We havent been this excited in Minnesota since Randy Moss left. Now all we need is a QB and on decent WR to go with Wade and Sidney Rice.

I have to agree with Iron Warrior. I don't believe Peterson is anymore injury prone than any other RB in the league, with the exception that he plays for the Vikings and they have zero passing game. If Peterson was playing with a well rounded team, for instance, the Dallas Cowboys (), then he would not be as vulnerable.
Edit: Oh and IW, sorry about your 9er's last night. I was really pulling for them. RIP Richard Nolan

he wont be the next Bo Jackson. Hes a rookie and when he learns to know when and when not to run out of bounds. and if the Vikings can learn to pass the ball even a little bit. he will be as dominating as ever.

I hate to see that injury (even though it's supposed to be only one game he's out). I hope he continues to put up awesome number this season. I love to see records broken.

That was a rough one. The 49ers showed no heart on offense and even looked scared at times. Play calling has been too conservative and it's getting on my nerves ! I think my blood pressure spiked up another 10 points after the game.

I don't know if you saw the injury that Bryant Young suffered in 1998 but it was a similar play and Ken Norton, Jr. (his teammate) sidelined him for the year on a hit to his lower leg.

Not to take anything away from AP though. He's a suprisingly versatile runner and burst onto the scene for sure. I'm VERY satisfied with the quality of running backs in the NFL right now and I keep watch for the youngster in Buffalo as well. ...now if only there were more than 3 or 4 quality QBs in the league to bring more excitement again
RippedForce, good point about longevity. The guy that stands out in my mind is Marshall Faulk.

If he can stay healthy - and that's a big if - I believe he has the potential to be one the best to ever play the position. He is simply an amazing athlete. But it's hard to stay healthy in this sport, and with his history of past injuries... Only time can tell.
But he is definitely the real deal and I look forward to watching his performances for as long as he's around.
