Peterson wants MVP all to himself

Peterson Getty Images

As Vikings running back Adrian Peterson continues his assault on the single-season rushing record, the debate is raging regarding whether he should be named the league’s MVP.

A fair outcome could be a tie with Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, like when Manning and Steve McNair tied for the prize in 2003, and Barry Sanders and Brett Favre once before that.

Peterson isn’t interested in that.   “I want MVP all to myself,” Peterson tells Bob Sansavere of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Peterson was laughing as he said it.  But plenty of truths are told under the cover of humor.

In Peterson’s case, an easy case can be made that he deserves it.  And more and more people are warming up to the idea that his accomplishments, even if the Vikings don’t make it to the postseason, should overcome what has become in many years an award that goes to the Most Valuable Quarterback.

The next two games will go a long way toward deciding the outcome, especially since Peterson thinks he can catch Eric Dickerson’s 2,105 yards on Sunday, with one game still to play.

“It’s not farfetched, not at all,” Peterson told Sansavere.  “A lot of people look at me crazy but, being around me, you’ll start to understand how my mind goes, and that’s how I envision things.”

In the end, it would be better for everyone if Peterson easily breaks the record on Sunday and then pushes it to 2,200 or higher next week.  Since the official postseason awards aren’t announced until the night before the postseason ends, 34 days after the last regular-season games are played, folks may quit caring about the MVP decision until long before we know what it is.

    Yeah, let’s definitely not mention JJ Watt or Aldon Smith. They’re not having MVP seasons at all.

    (Full disclosure: I think AP should win it, but it would be nice to see the two most dominant defensive players in the NFL get mentioned)

  2. denverdougz says: Dec 22, 2012 3:49 PM

    Von miller is every bit as disruptive as watt/smith

  3. poiuyt7 says: Dec 22, 2012 3:50 PM

    Adrian Peterson isn’t quite as humble as everyone seems to think he is.

  4. matthewcarlson1 says: Dec 22, 2012 3:52 PM

    My whole deal is that AD is the best non-QB in the game and might be the best player in the game. Peyton has had great stats and all but Brady, Rodgers, and Brees are all right there with him. Andrew Luck is having almost as good a year as Peyton is. So there are about 5 guys playing QB on Peyton’s level this season. AD is all by himself. He’s 400+ yards ahead of the next leading rusher in the league and he’s all by himself. The Offensive line is improved from last season, but barely. The Broncos have 1500 yards rushing to help out Peyton while the Vikings have only 2527 yards PASSING to help AD. In a passing league that is a pathetic number. The Broncos backfield have contributed 9 touchdowns while Ponder the starting QB has only 14 on the year. Peyton has a very balanced team that went to the playoffs without him last year while AD is breaking records facing 9 – 11 men in the box.

  5. chaseutley says: Dec 22, 2012 3:55 PM

    If he breaks 2000 yards, he deserves it (the MVP award)….. Although he might have to share it. If he breaks Dickerson’s record, he should run away with it.

  6. broadstbully says: Dec 22, 2012 3:55 PM

    Peterson expects greatness from himself. And he’s being honest about that when he’s ASKED these questions (something people ignore.) I get the whole “lack of humility” knock on him these days, though I think it’s misguided. If he were holding his teammates as accountable as he holds himself, he’d be seen as one of the best leaders in the league right now. And the Vikings would probably be a better team. All that said, I hope he obliterates the record. And I hope he pisses clean afterward.

  7. moelester says: Dec 22, 2012 3:56 PM

    AP is having an insane season.
    But here’s my problem. The V is for valuable. What value is he providing his team other than padding stats. Dot get me wrong. It’s unreal what he is doing. But to me the MVP shouldn’t be given to someone who’s team won’t even make the playoffs. If the ultimate goal in football is to win it all, as most say, what value is AP providing here?

  8. boyshole25 says: Dec 22, 2012 3:57 PM

    Aldon smith isn’t anything without Justin smith

  9. johnnyqbp says: Dec 22, 2012 3:58 PM

    Poiuyt: Yes he is. He’s also confident. So, when a reporter or anyone shoves a mic in his face and asks him if he thinks he should be/will be the MVP, what do you want him to say? “No. I don’t think I’m good enough .”? I am a Vikings fan. I think he deserves it. Take him away and we have nothing else. However, the same can be said for number 18 in Denver, 12 in GB, or 81 in Detroit. Especially Manning. We shall see. You know who gets my vote!

  10. rightwingguy says: Dec 22, 2012 3:59 PM

    Denver was a playoff team before manning arrived, AP should win hands down

  11. vbe2 says: Dec 22, 2012 4:09 PM

    Peyton is the seasons MVP… “All Day” long…

  12. bertmaclin says: Dec 22, 2012 4:12 PM

    That’s a two win team without him, he carries that team more than any player in the league. And I’m a Packer fan.

  13. tokyosandblaster says: Dec 22, 2012 4:19 PM

    Glad to know that he’s thinking about a personal record and not helping his team get into the playoffs.

    His priorities are right where they should be. After all, no one will remember who won the Super bowl this year. Everyone will remember who the MVP is.

  14. dalucks says: Dec 22, 2012 4:19 PM

    I agree with Adrian and regardless of whether or not the Vikings make the playoffs, he is league MVP.
    Unfortunately, the NFL is selling itself as a pass happy league full of mediocre quarterbacks. The NFL feels that if they say this propaganda enough that people will believe it. Honestly, I am not buying it. There are only 5 elite, truly great quarterbacks in the NFL. The rest of those guys frauds who are getting highly overpaid. If those frauds were truly elite then the NFL would not need to restrict the defensive players as much as they have the last 5 years. Just admit it, the product is watered down to help the less talented.

  15. connie73 says: Dec 22, 2012 4:24 PM

    Im hoping he don’t even get a part of the mvp.
    And I was rooting for him before he sounded so selfish.

    Really? Luck having almost as good a year?
    Peyton:
    103.5 Rating/4016YDs/31TD/10INT/1FMB

    Luck:
    75.5 Rating/3978YDs/20TD/18INT/8FMB

    Manning in the Top 6 of: Completitions, Yards, TDs, Rating, Passing Yards/Game, Yds/Pass, Pass Int % (Lowest), Pass Competition %, Passes Completed/Game, Sack % (Lowest)

    Luck in Top 6 of: Well no categories except he leads the league in interceptions and total turnovers. And is #4 for most sacked.

    Throwing for 4,000 yards is great and doing it as a rookie is particularly great…but this does not make your year “almost as good as” Peyton’s.

    ————————————————-
    What is your point?

    Watt and Smith are both in realistic range of breaking the single season sack record – Miller has been phenomenal, but is way down in the discussion on this list.

  18. hushbrother says: Dec 22, 2012 4:29 PM

    This Peterson-for-MVP talk is silly. Tom Brady is the MVP, pure and simple. Take Brady away from the Patriots, and what do you have? A good team, but not one likely to win the big prize. Brady singlehandedly makes them explosive and dangerous. Could Adrian Peterson have brought the Vikings back from a 31-3 deficit against the 49ers in a matter of 15 minutes? Peterson is great, no doubt. He does not have the team-transforming effect that Brady does.

    —————————————————
    Yeah because if AD runs for 100 yds or less in each of the next 2 games the “Team” has a much better chance of winning… right? This team has won all of its games by riding AD and winning in spite of Ponder. The REALITY is the only way they make the playoffs is if AD gets close to or breaks the record (in doing so he should win the MVP) and Ponder not giving these games away in turnovers and lack of completions (the few he’s expected to make).

  20. fsf7 says: Dec 22, 2012 4:40 PM

    Playoff team?

    From 2006 – 2011, the Broncos were exactly a .500 save for their 4-12 season in 2010. They won a Division with an 8-8 record and their playoff win was the same kind of fluke as the 7-9 Seahawks win over the 13-3 Saints the year before – getting HFA just because of the Division winning HFA format.

    Does anyone really think the Broncos would be this good if they didn’t land Manning in FA?

  21. tatvin says: Dec 22, 2012 4:41 PM

    AP needs a little humble pie…hope he DOESNT get it now

  22. Tadd says: Dec 22, 2012 4:42 PM

    I think the Comeback Player of the Year award already belongs to AP no question, and I think if he breaks the record he deserves the MVP as well.

    HOWEVER, I think both awards were given to Peyton “Media’s Darling” Manning the day he signed with the Broncos. Even though I don’t give him much credit for the Bronco’s success since Tebow took that team into the playoffs and even won a game there last year.

    Also I am a Packer fan, though I hate the Vikings and AP, I respect him a ton and think both awards should be his.

  23. flakeybiscuits says: Dec 22, 2012 4:43 PM

    look at the two teams each of these players are on. last year, Denvers D carried them to the playoffs, and the vikes? not so much… AP is running these guys to the postseason

  24. bamboozle99 says: Dec 22, 2012 4:58 PM

    People are over-analyzing the definition. It’s simply an award for the best player. We’re looking for the player most valuable to the league, not just their teams.

  25. allisab says: Dec 22, 2012 4:59 PM

    And yet there’s no mention of Tom Brady who’s having a better season than Manning…

  26. ubpinaz says: Dec 22, 2012 5:05 PM

    FYI – the Vikings are currently the 6th seed in the NFC. and they are ONLY there because of AP.

    Denver has the 4th-ranked defense, great weapons on offense and a solid running game.

    Minnesota’s defense is average at best, their QB play is terrible and the only other weapon on offense has been out for the year since week 9.

    AP getting the Vikings to 8-6 with people stacking the box is far more impressive than what Manning has done for the Broncos. That’s not to discredit the season Manning is having, but Peterson’s season is a greater feat.

  27. filthymcnasty1 says: Dec 22, 2012 5:05 PM

    I hope AP wins the MVP because Viking fans have nothing.

  28. rajbais says: Dec 22, 2012 5:36 PM

    Me too!!!

    Enough with the Most Valuable Player being the Most Valuable Quarterback!!!

    Give ANY award that’s NOT a QB for a change!!!

  29. jaff49 says: Dec 22, 2012 5:45 PM

    I think Peyton Manning should win and I know he would not be opposed to sharing it with AD. They both deserve it. Wonderful seasons against all odds for both.

  30. tiggerblood says: Dec 22, 2012 5:49 PM

    If anything that 49ers game dropped Brady down a notch in the MVP race. Also when Brady didn’t play that 1 season Matt Cassel took them to a 10-6 record if memory serves me correctly and we know what Matt Cassel has done since so that shows where Brady ranks this year behind AD. Manning is also on a very good team if Adrian Peterson doesn’t win it this year whether he breaks the record or not the whole MVP thing is a sham. Also Aldon Smith isn’t nothing without Cowboy. But I’m sure his production would drop off without Cowboy taking on double teams for him to sneak by and get the QB. We’ll see if Justin Smith doesn’t play this week. Also how was Aldon’s production after Smith was pulled from the game last Sunday? I’m not sure but it’s worth a look.

  31. bradygirl12 says: Dec 22, 2012 5:52 PM

    You are supposed to put the team and winning before personal accolades…not saying he doesn’t deserve MVP, but maybe he should just not comment for now when asked about this. He makes it sound like he wants the personal trophies more than a ring. That being said,the guy is pretty amazing to watch.

  32. j6strings says: Dec 22, 2012 5:53 PM

    I’m not trying to pour haterade on AP’s parade, but the Vikings are only 6-4 this season in games he rushed for more than 100 yds, and he only has 11 rushing TDs. The award is still supposed to be for the Most Valuable Player, which is why RBs would almost never win. It would hard to argue against a QB who has thrown for 30+ TDs, and has guided his team to a 11-3 record.

  33. stellarperformance says: Dec 22, 2012 6:00 PM

    Peterson should get the MVP, if only because his role on his team is more difficult than the role Peyton fills on his team. The Broncos are good, even if Peyton weren’t there. The Vikings would have nothing without Peterson. The two of them are the main contenders. Even when the Packers stop him 100 yards short of the record and end the season for the Vikings (if they are fortunate enough to get past the Texans,) he should still get it. I hope he does get the record, as long as the Packers win next week.

  34. truthfactory says: Dec 22, 2012 6:01 PM

    Great player and he’s having a great season… but he sseems so commited to padding his stats and breaking that record just to get the award… Kind of cheapens it a little bit when all his focus is breaking the record and talkin about the mvp award while his team is in the thick of a playoff race. If he talked about winning the next 2 games and making the playoffs as much as he’s talked about the MVP race, maybe Id think higher of him.

  35. bobnelsonjr says: Dec 22, 2012 6:02 PM

    1) First of all an MVP must be of good moral character and represent what is good about the NFL.

    a) The viking was arrested in the off season.

    b) The viking during the latest labor dispute publicly equated the NFL to slavery.

    c) The same viking has been ticketed multiple times for endangering the public by high speed driving; once on December’s icy roads.

    2) An MVP candidate has to be productive in yards.

    a) The viking only has 2023 total yards.

    b) Drew Brees has 4335 yards passing.
    Tom Brady 4276 yards.
    Tony Romo 4269 yards.
    Matthew Stafford 4252 yards
    Matthew Ryan 4202 yards
    That’s more than double some viking. Even Randall Cobb is more productive with 10% more total yards than the viking.

    c) The viking only has 6.3 yards per attempt. There are 30 quarterbacks in the league that have more yards per attempt.

    3) An MVP candidate must be productive in points.

    a) Arian Foster, James Jones, and Trent Richardson all have more touchdowns.

    b) Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers have 3 times as many TD’s in the passing game as the vikling running back.

    c) Andy Dalton, Josh Freeman, Carson Palmer, and Ryan Fitzpatrick all have double the touchdowns in the passing game.

    4) An MVP has candidate has to be able to almost singlehandedly get his team into the playoffs (Dan Marino style).

    The vikings are not a playoff team with loses to the Texans and Packers to finish the season.

    Leading the league in a category like rushing does not make a player worthy of MVP status.

  36. nodindenver says: Dec 22, 2012 6:06 PM

    Get the Vikings in the playoffs and he deserves to be the MVP. Tired of hearing about this guys warnings to Dickerson and how he should win the MVP by himself. Let’s see him lead something other than his campaign for personal records!

  37. dlmcc1010 says: Dec 22, 2012 6:20 PM

    I understand that Peyton Manning is having a great year. calvin Johnson is having a record breaking type year too. but in my opinion A.P is the MVP and im not even a Vikings fan. This guy has no help on this team whatsoever. He came back insanely fast from a tough knee injury to have an all time season for a RB. Im not sure that he will break Dickersons record, but in my opinion no one means more to his team this year than this guy. If it wasnt for him this team would be total garbage. He is almost unstoppable and definitley is my pick for M.V.P

  38. tangysizzl says: Dec 22, 2012 6:44 PM

    NFC North has some of the leagues best players and should end up owning some of the most coveted records in the NFL.

    Rodgers breaks the all time Passer rating record last year.

    Calvin Johnson will break the single season recieving record this year.

    Adrian Peterson could break the single season rushing record this year

    Brandon Marshall will or already has broken the record for most receptions in a season.

    Randall Cobb may break the single season all purpose yardage record.

    All in one division, thats crazy.

  39. hatesycophants says: Dec 22, 2012 7:25 PM

    Accusing a running back of “padding his stats” is comically ridiculous. Also, bobnelsonjr should be legally banned from being in public unattended.

  40. msclemons67 says: Dec 22, 2012 8:13 PM

    The MVP should could from a winning team.

    Being the least crappy guy on a bad team isn’t MVP.

  41. jolink653 says: Dec 22, 2012 8:14 PM

    Tom Brady rattles off 28 points in not even a full quarter’s worth of time against the top defense in the league (just as an example), and he’s not mentioned as the possible MVP? Without him, the Patriots are still a good team, but not a team favored to win the Super Bowl…He makes that team run and provides that spark they have to do what they do…Peyton Manning is great and all, but the Broncos are as good as they are because of their defense; they were able to win 8 games last year with a QB that couldn’t even throw, so how much value exactly does Peyton provide to his team? I’d argue the defense is more deserving of any MVP considerations for the Broncos…And I hate how the MVP becomes an award people want to give to the person with the best stats…AP can wrack up all the stats he wants, but at the end of the day if he can’t carry his team to the playoffs, then I think someone who can deserves the award more than he does…It’s Most VALUABLE Player, not best-performing player, and I think Tom Brady and Peyton Manning should get more consideration than Peterson…LT won the award when he did because of his stats and the fact that he led the Chargers to the #1 seed and the best record in the league

  42. johnniemayes says: Dec 22, 2012 9:13 PM

    Von Miller is actually a lot better than Watt and A.Smith. All they do is rush the passer. Miller is a complete football player and drops into coverage. He has a pick 6 this season, he’s 3rd in forced fumbles with 6 (double that of Watt and Smith) AND leads the league in tackles for a loss.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, your defensive MVP Von Miller.

  43. htowntexan says: Dec 22, 2012 9:20 PM

    How does Watt not get this? His stats beyond sacks are incredible. Never has a defensive player had such a dominant role and been more disruptive than him. They have offensive player of the year for a reason. The MVP should be Watts

    Wow you just showed how truly dumb you are. Comparing a running backs YPC to a Qbs YPA. By the end of this season Adrian Peterson will have one of the 5 single best seasons by a running back in the history of the NFL, and could very well have the best YPC ever for a season. Your entire post is so ridiculous and makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. To compare a QBs stats against a RBs stats is the most idiotic comparison anyone can make.

    Peterson has 433 more yards than the closest RB. Its not even close in the running back category. Richardson has the same amount of TDs as Peterson so you are incorrect there while his YPC is almost a full 3 yards less. Arian Foster has only 3 more TDs with 36 more carries on the year while averaging 2.3 less YPC. Try and skew crap all you want but your argument holds absolutely no leverage at all. You are an idiot.

  45. chubrock50 says: Dec 22, 2012 9:26 PM

    And as a poster said a little earlier people look into the definition of MVP to much. Regardless of what MVP stands for by definition it is an award given to the best player in the game during the year. Thats why it is the biggest award for the year. Its not for the most valuable player to a specific team, again it is for the best player in the game.

  46. skolvikes says: Dec 22, 2012 10:44 PM

    Gotta love all the people who comment about how selfish AD is or how they are losing respect for him.

    Do you guys not realize he’s answering questions about the record or about being MVP in interviews?

    What is he supposed to say? No, I don’t want the recrord… No, I don’t want the MVP…

    He is and always has been a team first kind of guy, the quotes being used as headlines here are extremely misleading and people are thinking he’s going out of his way to make these comments. He’s just answering direct questions.

  47. bjbeliever says: Dec 22, 2012 10:51 PM

    how about splitting MVP with Megatron….if you;re lucky Adrian

  48. kingcrusher says: Dec 22, 2012 11:16 PM

    I think there are more deserving players. There’s more to MVP than stats. You have to take into account the team’s record, the rest of the team and how they gel together. I mean, there is so much more to MVP than just being a monster at your position.
    Don’t get me wrong, he’s amazing, but I don’t see his team where they need to be in order for him to get this kind of an award.

  49. packfaninvikeland says: Dec 22, 2012 11:59 PM

    as a pack fan. You give co-MVP to Peterson and Manning, both deserve it. Yes I know Watt is having a great year, he’s locked up DPOY, but both Manning and AP’s team wouldnt be relevant if not for them.

  50. rg3isvictory says: Dec 23, 2012 12:00 AM

    The arrogance of people to complain about AP’s lack of humility! Is he the best RB this season? yes! Is he the best player this season? If he breaks 2k, yes sir! What good does humility do? If it wasn’t for him talking about his goals he’d get over looked for a QB. Plus, he has earn the right to thump his chest. I feel sorry for those who are bothered by his confidence. I hope he crushes the record! What a great story for similarly injured athletes! There are too many lambs commenting on this site.

  51. ubpinaz says: Dec 23, 2012 12:20 AM

    Yeah this “selfish” talk is out-of-line. Do you know how AD puts himself in the best position to have the MVP award all to himself? The Vikings making the playoffs.

    Have you seen Watt play ? Take him out of that defense , the texans are average. He lines up all over the field and is the most disruptive player on defense. The play he made in the patriots game when he ran down woodhead and stripped the ball was as good as a complete play as any. And Iam a patriots fan.

  53. Propayne says: Dec 23, 2012 6:17 AM

    if AD gets the vikings into the playoffs then he should be the mvp. If not I would have to say brady should get the nod. no offense to peyton manning but who has he beaten this year? He’s beat up on a bunch of weak teams and a banged up baltimore defense last week. those 3 losses? Against the 3 of the best teams in the nfl. If AP doesn’t win it give it to Brady. He deserves it more.

  54. electionconfidential says: Dec 23, 2012 7:53 AM

    There’s a good reason that QBs usually take this award. They are asked to do more. I think Peyton Manning deserves the award for his leadership, the way he checks off at the line and for his general numbers.

    The difference in the Colts with and without him and the difference in the Broncos with and without him shows that he is an extremely valuable player.

    With the way the remaining schedules look the Vikings won’t be going to the playoffs and the Broncos will have a first round bye. That’s called results…

  55. bagadeez04 says: Dec 23, 2012 8:04 AM

    Manning having great comeback year but that does not =MVP. Peterson or Megatron deserve the award much more.

    To the guy who just said: “Andrew Luck is having almost as good a year as Peyton is”…do you even look at stats? Luck has almost the same number of interventions as td throws.. So don’t say stupidities.

    I think it would be tremendous for Peterson to win this award in honor of all those Viking fans who have nothing.

    “Accusing a running back of “padding his stats” is comically ridiculous. Also, bobnelsonjr should be legally banned from being in public unattended.”

    Thank you, couldn’t have said it better myself…As a Bears fan, I’d like to see AP win it, he is single-handedly keeping the Vikes in the race, while Megatron has killer stats on a 4-12 (after next week) team. And the people calling AP selfish are way off base, he was laughing when he made the comment.

    The three rookie QBs, Wilson, Griffin and Luck, are giving AP a run for the MVP.
    Peterson is definitely the Vikings team MVP, but I don’t think he should be the NFL MVP–unless he breaks the rushing record.
