Eric Dickerson might have been the only person not cheering for Adrian Peterson on Sunday as the Vikings’ running back came nine yards short of the single-season rushing record. But now, Dickerson’s son has a lot of pressure on him. Dickerson tweeted that his son —  who looks to be about 20 years away from an NFL career — will one day break his record. Dickerson also appeared to be celebrating that he got to keep his record. Daddy keeps the record!!!!! My son will break one day :) http://t.co/tYXyYf1t— Eric Dickerson (@EricDickerson) December 31, 2012 Dickerson did have some kind words for Peterson after his impressive 2,000-yard season. @AdrianPeterson Just want to say that you are a Great player & if my record had to fall. I would like it to go to a player like you AP. ED— Eric Dickerson (@EricDickerson) December 31, 2012 Just want to say that Adrian is a Great player & if my record had to fall.
