Adrian Peterson is Great and All, but No Way He's Catching Emmitt Smith

   Adrian Peterson is a badass. Best running back in football. The NFL's reigning MVP. No. 1 overall on most Fantasy Football draft boards.
   But, sorry, he's no Emmitt Smith.
   Furthermore,  he ain't breaking No. 22's record.
   Not like Peterson came out and pro-actively boasted about someday eclipsing Smith's all-time NFL rushing record. But he also didn't shy away from the lofty goal when pushed about details.
   "Man. Oh boy," Peterson told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. "I have to do some calculations. I've been in the league seven years. I'm already right around 9,000. Calculate it out ... Let's think. Maybe get a couple 2,000-yard seasons. ... I've got ... Hmm ... 2017."
   Alright big talker, we want details What week in 2017?

  1. As a Walter Payton fan, I remember saying the same thing about Emmitt Smith.

  2. A.P. also did this with all sense of humor and no boasting. Maybe he'll break it, maybe he won't, but he's still a classy enough guy to have fun and be humble about it.
