Adrian Peterson: I’m already a Hall of Famer, I want to be the best ever

AP

The Pro Football Hall of Fame welcomed eight new members on Saturday night, and Vikings running back Adrian Peterson thinks he’s already accomplished enough that he’s sure to join them in Canton some day.

“I’m going to be blunt and honest with you. I feel like if I didn’t play another snap in my life, I got the opportunity to go in the Hall of Fame right now,” Peterson told the Star Tribune.

Peterson’s goals go beyond just being a Hall of Famer, which he calls a “no-brainer.” He wants to be remembered as the best player in NFL history.

“Not just the greatest running back,” he points out. “The greatest player.”

That’s not going to happen. Peterson will likely get to the Hall of Fame, but he hasn’t dominated his era the way Jim Brown did. He hasn’t combined great regular-season production with postseason accomplishments the way Emmitt Smith did. He doesn’t have a highlight reel like Barry Sanders. He’s not the greatest running back in NFL history, and at the age of 30 he’s already on the down side of his career.

And Peterson surely won’t surpass the likes of Jerry Rice, Lawrence Taylor, Sammy Baugh and Johnny Unitas on the list of the greatest players ever to play at any position. Peterson is a great player. But he is a long way from the greatest.

  1. You can’t compare running backs to players like receivers who can avoid getting hit.

  2. Um, not even close AP. The hall of fame is for great players, you’re good but on a Jamal Lewis level not a Berry Sanders level. Heck, Lynch is a better candidate at this point in their careers. Oh and AP is a child abuser so there’s that.

  3. Because of what happened last year. Some writers would keep him out of the greatest football player conversation. This isn’t new to people that follow AD. He always has high goals. And with the success he has had why wouldn’t have high goals.

  4. Missing two seasons will hurt his chances to be the best ever.

    To say that he hasn’t dominated the way Jim Brown dominated his era is short sighted. AP would DOMINATE back in those days. Hell he dominates now.

  5. I’d be careful saying this…. Terrell Davis was a monster in his day but hes still not in… You aren’t in till you’re in…

  7. Obviously talented with all the tools…….with that said and with all due respect I dont think hes there yet…hes in a category with guys like Terrell Davis ……you need long sustained success in the league atleast 10-12 years straight uninterupted…..just my take……..good day all

  8. He’s a great player, and yes, he probably is already worthy of Canton. The only thing I have a problem with is that I wish AD would spend more time talking about winning Super Bowls and less time just talking about his own career. Still glad he’s back though.

  9. He is better than E. Smith talent wise, does he have the hardware from the post season no, those essentially are team awards. I doubt he can break the rushing record but who knows QBs used to retire at 34 and now play into the 40s

  10. People wrote off Adrian a couple years ago when he destroyed his knee too and look what he did from that. Adrian is a special player and 30 is just a number to someone like him …

  12. I do think AP IS the greatest ever……at beating up kids. No way Barry Sanders or Jim Brown could beat a kid up half as well.

  13. If I was setting a roster and could pick any running back in their prime, Smith and Sanders wouldn’t be a consideration. Picking Peterson over Brown, probably Brown.

  14. After his charges and suspension, he is not going into the HOF..Sorry Adrian, ain’t happening.

  15. Well let’s see twig boy , you got brown, smith, sanders, Payton, Simpson, Sayers, all WAY better than you are. Hall of fame, yeah probably, best ever , your really going out on a LIMB there.

  16. Not in either conversation if you ask me. Peterson can get all the yards he wants. To me you are not a Hall of Fame Player if you fumble the ball every time the game is on the line. Especially if you fumble the ball with the game on the line in the playoffs. Peterson isn’t the only “great back” with fumble-itous (Murray), but he is pretty good for all that.

  17. The lack of postseason success will keep him from being a lock for the HOF. While it’s true that he hasn’t had many opportunities to showcase his talents in the postseason, he did have one of his worst games ever on the biggest stage of his career – the NFC Championship game.

  18. Great players elevate the play of those around them.

    AP has some gaudy numbers, but all those bottom-of-the division finishes prove he is not worthy of the HOF.

    And, of course, that pesky little beat-my-kid-until-he’s-bloody thing.

  19. I love the game of professional football and football in general but some of these guys are like listening to high school kids talk. No humility when they speak equals insecurity and emotional immaturity. I have a hard time respecting physical abilty too much when a player sounds like he hasn’t grown intellectually since he was 15. That’s the catch for me and others who love the game but I look away when some of these guys talk. Now knowing how the NFL front office operates only adds to a growing disrespect for everything in the NFL but the games themselves and the players who have a mature persona about themselves. Worst year in NFL history now knowing I could never respect the present NFL leadership, their makeup of duplicity, dishonestly and treacherousness. Hoping somehow, they clean house at the top as soon as possible and stop taking advantage of the players some with the minds and makeup of kids and the fans who gave have suffered through these last few months, because they deserve much more transparency and true integrity not the fake stuff coming out of the Commissioner’s mouth and NFL front office at this time.

  20. Elite RBs from this era will be hurt in terms of HoF votes if they don’t carry teams through playoff games the way RBs from the past did, but let’s be honest: the game has changed. The Vikings were never super bowl threats under Peterson’s prime until Favre signed.

    Peterson will never be viewed like RBs before him because feature backs were the stars of the NFL, unlike today.

    He’s the best (RB) of his generation, but he’s not even in the ballpark with people like Manning, Brady, and others.

    He’s also not even the best RB in NFL history. He’d have to play 5-10 years like he played during his prime.

  21. If you have to blow your own horn, it usually means you’re the only one listening to it.

    It doesn’t matter what your stats are or how good you think you are, you still have to be voted into the HOF by folks who each have their own opinions and agendas. Guessing the ‘no brainer’ comment alienated at least a few of them. Nice job shooting yourself in the foot, AP.

  22. AP should just let his play do the talking. He’s a media lightning-rod at the moment. Jim Brown is 1a the best ever with Barry Sanders being 1b.

    Barry was the epitome of class, which is why so many were dissappointed when he abruptly retired.

  23. Well, if you are already a Hall of Famer, there is no reason for you to even be on the field. So go away so we never have to hear your nonsense again.

    ______
    To be fair Jim Brown did specialize in beating up his women.

  25. Whatever happened to just playing and letting other people decide who is the greatest?

    I was hoping for a decent year for the Vikings, but with all the hype and Peterson spouting off his mouth, get set for 8 – 8 this year.

    I am a diehard purple people eate, but there is all talk and no action.

  26. “He doesn’t have a highlight reel like Barry Sanders”.

    Lol why don’t you watch 15 minutes of AP highlights on YouTube and I think you’ll change your mind.

  27. Didn’t dominate his era? 10,ooo in 104 games. 5.0 yards per carry. On garbage teams, with garbage QBs and garbage WRs. Please. This guy is one of the greatest running back to ever play. Certainly better than Jerome Bettis. And he was just inducted.

  28. If he picks up where he left off this season then yes, he’s in automatically. I enjoy watching him play. The guy is an absolute beast. But, at this point in his career his worry should be championships. He’s closer to being done as each season passes.

  29. People comparing AP’s off the field stuff to other greats, should Google them. The Bus sold crack and shot at people. Jamal Lewis was charged with child abandoning also drug charges.Jim Brown has a history of beating women. The HOF won’t care about AP’s abuse arrest

  30. All the haters are coming out..lol. Anyone with any sensible film evaluation skills knows Peterson belongs in the conversation as one of the greatest RBs ever.

    He’s obviously better than Jamal Lewis, and to compare him to “The Bus” is laughable (who just got into the HOF). Substitute him in for Emmitt Smith on those Dallas teams and “All Day” would have AVERAGED 2,000 yards a season!

  31. Peterson is comparable to another Viking, whose transcendent athletic ability and on-field production more than justify a HOF nod: Randy Moss. Both were/are freaks of nature, who were the best at their position for a period of time, but neither should be considered best ever at their position, much less ever.

  32. If they ever had a Hall of Fame for egotism, Peterson would be a shoo-in. Does the guy ever talk about how he would like his team to do well? No. All he’s concerned with are his own personal records.

  33. Let’s not discount durability. He has been hurt and suspended and missed a lot of time. I can’t say for sure he is a 1st ballot yet. If he can get say more 4000 yards in his final years or wins a rushing title at 31 like a Curtis Martin then yes, 1st ballot. I think the 5.0 is a sign of lack of productivity because of his lower number of carries because of the things mentioned above not his elite elusiveness.. Great player but he’s not even the greatest Viking yet. N

  34. I wouldn’t say he is a shoe in just yet but consider he holds the single game rushing record and was 7 yards short of the season rushing record gives him the creds. And Michael David Smith, he has a pretty darn good highlight reel to boot. I would say his is in line with Barry’s with different styles of running.

  35. Didn’t dominate his era? 10,ooo in 104 games. 5.0 yards per carry. On garbage teams, with garbage QBs and garbage WRs. Please. This guy is one of the greatest running back to ever play. Certainly better than Jerome Bettis. And he was just inducted.
    ——
    And Barry Sanders own father said he was garbage compared to Jim Brown. People just let their emotions affect them too much. AP is 100% a hall of famer. I won’t even debate it. You don’t have to better than other hall of famers to make it to Canton.

    And the talk of “he doesn’t care about winning” is silly. He has said many times he wants to bring the Vikings a Super Bowl. He doesn’t have to say it constantly, or decline to set personal goals, just to prove it to “you”.

  36. Very good RB. Top RB while he’s been in the league but IMO – he’s not HOF.

    The Halls of Fame for most of the sports have become rather watered down in the last 10 years, now it’s enough to simply be above average during your era to get in instead of being TRULY exceptional where your play/participation would have stood out regardless of era.

    AP happens to play in an era where there is little to no thought about run defense. Defenses are built to protect the pass as this IS a passing league.

    Barry, Walter and even Emmit played when running the rock was still the way to win.

    Sure – run defense is the way to stop the Vikings – they never had a pass threat except Favre and we saw what AP did then – he dropped the ball, multiple times during the biggest game of his career. HOF guys don’t do that. But defenses aren’t built to stop RBs anymore. AP wouldn’t be AP in the 80’s or 70’s – he’s not HOF.

  37. If Bettis is a HOFer, this guy is too. Just need a few clean years to put some space between the child abuse and the end of his career

  38. What if he plays another eight years, breaks the career rushing mark, breaks the single season mark (he was a few yards from doing it already), and – stay with me here – leads the Vikes to their first SB victory?
    Seems crazy, but the guy is quite possibly the most physically gifted athlete of his time. He has shown an amazing ability to recover from injury. On top of that he just had (what could be) a mid-career hiatus that allowed him to rest and heal in a way that very few NFL RBs ever do. As Arian Foster demonstrates, the cumulative injuries that never fully heal are what often derail a top level RB’s career.
    Regardless of how packers fans feel about it, this is a team that shows a lot of potential. It isn’t crazy to think, should Ted B. continue to develop and improve on his current trajectory, and should this D fulfill its promise, that MN is entering a 3-5 year window in which they will have as good a shot as anybody at winning it all.
    AP is likely as healthy as he’s been in a very long time. Only time will tell how much tread is left on those tires. If everything falls into place, it isn’t crazy to think we’ll be talking about AP as the greatest ever several years from now.

  39. He wants to be remembered as the best player in NFL history.

    “Not just the greatest running back,” he points out. “The greatest player.”

    Nothing wrong with ‘wanting’ to be remembered as the GOAT as a goal. Although as goals go his is far from realistic or attainable.

  40. Right now he’d be 17th on the All-Time list for most rushing yards. However, he would be tied for 4th on the average per carry. But at the same time, it is getting harder and harder to get into the HOF.

    Would he get in right now? Borderline. Will he get in? Probably, but it depends on his production for the next 3 years and whether or not his average yards per carry drops.

  41. I cringe every time this dude talks… but I wouldn’t bet against him. MDS is just being a hater. Jim Brown wouldn’t be shlt if he played with today’s players. Today’s D-linemen are faster than linebackers and some DBs when brown played.

  42. He has a chance to go down as the best child abuser in NFL history. That’s about it.

    Then again, if people can continue to idolize woman-beater Jim Brown, they’ll probably do the same for this trash.

  43. I think the best remark was he’s not even the best player in his division. This guy just needs to shut up. He’s never been a team player and the Vikings will never win a championship with that kind of attitude.

  44. He certainly has the highlight reel Barry Sanders has. Maybe not for jukes and scats, but from sheer power. His a HOF’er already. He’ll never be the greatest player ever simply because he cant block and he doesn’t run routes well.

  45. Jim Brown dominated an era where he was the same size as defensive linemen, the talent pool was way thinner, and most of the defensive players who weren’t superstars worked as mail carriers, general laborers in the off-season. They didn’t train year round or have personalized chefs like the elite athletes of today. Jim Brown would be a poor man’s version of Marshawn Lynch in today’s game. He’s lucky he played in his era.

  46. Anybody who thinks Peterson isn’t a HOF running back right now is smoking crack. Nobody has ever rushed for more yards in a single game. Only one man has rushed for more yards in a season. He is consistently the top RB in the league, or among the top 5…the others in that group swap out every year but Peterson is the one who remains year in and year out. He has a monster highlight reel. He has a league MVP award in an era where the QB is king. His rebound from knee surgery is the stuff of legend. He already has more total yards than some other HOF RBs who played in eras where the RB was the featured weapon. And if he simply has 2 or 3 mediocre seasons he will finish in the top 10 all time for yards.

  47. He’s basically had a career so fr that matches Ahman Green’s time in Green Bay or Matt Forte’s time in Chicago.

    In other words, he’s Shaun Alexander. Really good running backs but there are a lot of really good running backs who don’t abuse children, smoke a little dope or ride camels at their birthday party.

    CJ Spiller: 5.0
    Emmit Smith: 4.2
    Jamall Lewis: 4.2

    You see I can use one stat to say anything I want too!
    According to your logic CJ Spiller is a hall of famer and Emmit Smith is not. The hall is about more than numbers.

  49. Right now he is 28th on the all-time NFL rushers list with 2 active players higher than him so NO he would not make it to the HOF if he never played again even if he never got in trouble.
    There are guys ahead of him who never were even in the discussion of the HOF when their time came.
    I would put Corey Dillon in before him, at least he won a SupeBowl.

  50. I’m a Packer fan, a Viking hater !
    Peterson is a great running back. I would vote for him if I had a HOF vote, however it’s my belief with the politically correct society we live in, it’s going to be a difficult vote when AP becomes eligible. The incident with the whipping of his son will come into consideration. Unfortunate but most likely the truth. He is a HOF back.

  51. Missed seasons
    No rings
    Off field problems

    He might make it into the HoF some day, but I highly doubt he’ll be making it in the first year he’s eligible.

  52. While he may be the closest thing to Eric Dickerson we’ve seen, he’s still no Eric Dickerson.

  53. Career yards/carry
    Sanders: 5.0
    Peterson: 5.0
    Lewis: 4.2
    ————–
    Too bad it is also about overall production, not just YPC. Heck, even Steven Jackson has more total yards and TD’s than AP. And of course LT was actually a complete back unlike AP and he’s not even in yet.

    Peterson is a long shot at this point. Especially retiring without any championships.

  54. Right now he is 28th on the all-time NFL rushers list with 2 active players higher than him so NO he would not make it to the HOF if he never played again even if he never got in trouble.

    —————

    And I just looked it up. Half of the RB’s ahead of Peterson on that list are not in the HOF. But some of them, like LT will obviously get in soon.

  55. This guy makes Tiki Barber seem as humble as a buhddist monk by comparison. You want to go to the HOF AP? I’d start by taking a vow of media silence and letting your play do the talking. Elevate your team for once – it’s the least you could do after letting your lack of self-control tank their entire 2014 season and then having the huevos to extort them for a new contract. We won’t even talk about the way you gave the NFC Championship away.

  56. Every time AP opens his mouth I like him less. Just shut up and play, dude. Everyone likes it better when you just play.

  57. The guy wants to be the best ever. It’s a goal. As unrealistic as the goal may be, I’ll take the guy who has that desire over the guy who is content to be the player he is today. For those saying they wish he would be more about team goals, he actually does express those types of goals routinely. It doesn’t make headlines because every player says those things. Go back and read what he had to say when he had a chance to break the single season rushing record. He wanted the record, but winning that game and earning a playoff berth was clearly his top priority. I am not trying to be a Peterson apologist. I live in Minnesota and thought I’d chime in with some observations as someone who sees more than just his bold statements that make national headlines.

    Aug 9, 2015 10:00 AM

    Still never mentioned anything about winning a championship. Team guy…
    ———————————–

    Well, he does still play for the Vikings.

  59. Never come out and say you are great or that you are a HoFer. It makes you look like an arrogant and self-centered braggart. Let others say that stuff for you without prompting them. If they don’t, then you aren’t.

  60. He sure loves himself. I’d want to be known as a Super Bowl champion over anything else.

  61. Is the NFL HOF a haven for people that assault children with weapons?

    He shouldn’t be so certain he is already in; especially when he will always be at least 5 years from being eligible for induction until he retires. That gives him a lot of time to do something else stupid that could keep him out.

  62. 28th on the all-time rushing leaders list is NOT HOF worthy.
    AP is still 1,046 yards behind OJ Simpson who is 19th.
    Among active players, Frank Gore is 20th and has 883 more yards (and counting) than AP.
    Steven Jackson is 16th all-time and has 1,198 more yards (and counting) than AP.
    Not HOF material, yet.

  63. Jim Brown is the most overrated football player in history. Neither Syracuse nor Cleveland missed a beat once he left. Too bad the idiot media won’t just do a little research to see how widely inaccurate saying he’s the best football player is. If AP played in Brown’s era he’d have 2500 yard seasons. If Brown played today he’d have maybe 1000 yard seasons. AP has done all of this without the amazing offensive lines and weak opponents that Brown had. Rice had a great system, two great QBs and stickum to aid his career. Nobody can touch AP as a RB and when all is said and done…as a football player

  64. This guy is one of the most despised players in the NFL and coming off a year long suspension( most would be humble) but Meterson is back in form talking about himself. Some how Viking posters ignore the obvious but about every voter is a family man and almost a certainty many will not give him a vote. Also his career has to warrant it which it doesn’t yet.

  65. Anybody who thinks Peterson isn’t a HOF running back right now is smoking crack. Nobody has ever rushed for more yards in a single game. Only one man has rushed for more yards in a season. He is consistently the top RB in the league, or among the top 5…the others in that group swap out every year but Peterson is the one who remains year in and year out. He has a monster highlight reel.

He already has more total yards than some other HOF RBs who played in eras where the RB was the featured weapon. And if he simply has 2 or 3 mediocre seasons he will finish in the top 10 all time for yards.
    ——–
    The biggest problem here is; you’re using numbers and facts, when everybody else here likes to just go by opinion. You see, the haters here don’t want the truth.

  66. He’s never been a team player
    ——–
    That simply isn’t true at all. He’s a leader on that team and his teammates love him. You just can’t handle the truth.

  67. Because of what he did to that 4 year old, he shouldn’t be eligible for the hall of fame. He shouldn’t even be able to play. He should be in prison.

  68. If AP played in Brown’s era he’d have 2500 yard seasons. If Brown played today he’d have maybe 1000 yard seasons.
    ————–
    This is such a dumb comment. Players are much bigger and stronger than they were when Brown played. Just look at the size of the average O-lineman back when Brown played. Brown dominated in his era. Aaron Rodgers would destroy teams back then as well. But it’s just dumb to try to compare players across different era’s.

  69. He certainly has the talent, he just needs the longevity. He’s already missed the better part of two seasons due to injury and child beating; to get to the hof he’s going to need to make up for that lost time. He may be too old to do that.

  70. Unfortunately, I never saw Jim Brown play as I’m 38 years old. But the three best backs I’ve seen since I started watching football 30+ years ago are Payton, Peterson and Sanders. All of them are head and shoulders above the rest except for maybe Emmitt Smith

  71. How fitting. The team with no championships ever has one of its greatest players ever spouts off all his career goals, and not ONE of them is winning a Lombardi.

    At least AP seems to have grasped what Purple Fans haven’t. It’s wise that he sees no sense in “beating” his head against a wall.

  72. I don’t see how he’ll ever be considered the best player ever but I don’t think we should discount the possibility of him being considered the best running back ever until it’s all said and done. The most laughable comments I read are those saying Barry Sanders was better. Barry Sanders spent more time running around in his own backfield than he did gaining actual yardage. He was taken out of the game when the team got inside the 10-yard line. People get hung up on all the great moves he made, but Peterson has made the same kinds of moves while being a much bigger player. He also has much more power and more speed.

    ______

    Two seasons? Besides last year, the fewest games he’s played in a season is 12.

    He is already a Hall of Famer. He has over 10,000 yards, a 2,000-yard season, and the single-game rushing record.

    —————
    Tell that to the 13 RB’s ahead of him who are not in the HOF yet have more yards rushing over their career. SKOLOLOLOL

  75. Man, I can’t wait for Raji, Peppers, Matthews and the rest of the Packers D to bury this loser like they do every year.
    —–
    While the Packers team has garnered more wins against his team, the Packers have never “buried” AP. and I suspect this year the head to head competition will be very close.

  76. I could see him getting some father of the year votes as well as HOF votes. All sarcasm in case you don’t get it.

  77. Much like Terrell Owens, no matter how you feel about the guy personally, Adrian Peterson will absolutely be in the NFL Hall of Fame.

    As for best player ever, Peterson is outta his mind.

  78. AP players who talk that talk find out they are not as good as they think
    But good luck you need it

  79. I wouldn’t take any other RB that’s playing today. That makes him the greatest right now. 1,500 yards and 14 TD’s is a realistic expectation for this season.

  80. APs arrogance is just another reason I’ve shut off the NFL. No more spending ridiculous money to watch these wise azz children spout off about their abilities.

    Never hear anyone in the NHL talk like this.

  81. Not saying it will but what if he posts another 2,000 yard season? That would be crazy. Hard to argue at that point his RB greatness. Most of his playing days he has been the only weapon defenses have to gear up for when playing the Vikes. It’s pretty amazing what he’s accomplished.

  82. Too much venom here for AD. He didn’t touch your kids.He was however corrected on his parenting. He says he is a changed man. He is now off probation let him move forward. He has over 10,000 yards in just 7 full seasons and some people here can’t acknowledge he is a HOF player. That is wrong.

  83. Is that supposed to make it better that it was his own kids and not any of ours? I’ll tell you right now it doesn’t. As that boys father he is responsible for protecting the kid, he did the exact opposite.

    There is an element of character that goes with making the Hall of Fame. Any man who would assault his child with a weapon to the point of causing lacerations and bleeding is not worthy of an honor such as being called a Hall of Famer.

    Good thing for current hall of famers that your moral superiority wasn’t taken into account at the time of their enshrinement.

    We get it. You hate AP. You’re a better father. But that’s not what the discussion is. He’s still playing the game. He didnt cheat the game. He will be eligible for enshrinement when he retires.

    Still never mentioned anything about winning a championship. Team guy

    Einstein they asked him about his personal goals.

  86. It’s good to set your goals high. Also, Randy Moss was better than Jerry Rice. Rice is a “fan favorite” because of his accomplishments but really he was on great teams for most of his career. Moss was not only a game changer but a team changer. Did the 49’rs division opponents draft 3 db’s the year following his rookie season like the Packers did? Did Rice play on two separate teams that set the NFL points scored record? (Vikings 1998-99 Patriots 2006-7) Did opponents of Rice’s teams shift entire defenses to his side for entire games? Rice has the rings and the stats but Moss was a freak.

  87. Lets be honest… He’s pretty dang good. Rushed for 29 times and 158 yards today and I don’t see another back break tackles like he does and turn it into yards. He’s a beast and doesn’t seem to be slowing down at 30.
