I think Adrian Peterson should command a seven figure bonus if only for having to take on 10-men-in-the-box challenges every single Sunday and still (somehow) average over 120 yards rushing per game….after tearing his ACL to shreds 11 months ago, no less…..unbelievable…Peterson shouldn’t only be “in” the conversation for MVP—he IS the conversation about Most-Valuable-Player as far as I’m concerned. His accomplishments are all the more staggering considering the ball and chain Adrian drags around every weekend in the form of that overpaid gas bag Christian Ponder…How can a quarterback have the best running back in the NFL at his disposal every game and be so inept at play action passes–not even ATTEMPTING them as often as you’d think–with the second coming of Earl Campbell in the Vikings’ backfield????
