Is it just me or is Adrian Peterson‘s constant proclaiming his greatness getting a little…childish?
It was sorta cute and fun the first few times with his back and forth with Chris Johnson but I hope we’re not going to have to hear this week-to-week.
I’ve got feeling that’s not going to happen, so here’s an idea: How bout they both shut up about it till the end of the season when one or the other can, definitively and with proof, say, “I toldya so.”
PLAYER OF THE WEEK
That said, Adrian Peterson is off to a great start to being The Greatest.
He’s already been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance Sunday, the fourth time he’s earned the distinction.
Also, this week he’s up for the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week award.
Chris Johnson, of course, as well as Rashard Mendenhall. [VOTE.]
The Vikings defense is ranked fifth overall in the NFL.
You’ll remember that the Vikings tried to slip their draft pick, tight end Mickey Shuler through waivers to sign to the practice squad but lost him to the Miami Dolphins.
Nalbone was cut by the Dolphins to make room for Shuler, so we essentially got what Miami considered the inferior player of the two.
