Adrian Petesron does not plan on taking it easy next season. Following last night’s game, he had some words for Eric Dickerson, “I’m coming for you”. (Credit: REUTERS/Eric Miller) Yesterday, as the Vikings took on the Packers, Adrian Peterson fell just nine yards short of breaking Eric Dickerson’s 28 year old record of 2,105 rushing yards in a single season. Following the game, Peterson had a few words for Dickerson, “I’m coming for you”. While talking to Sports-Illustrated’s Peter King, Peterson was asked if it hurt that he came up short of breaking the record. “Yes,” Peterson said.  “Yes.  Yes.  The feeling is there.  I understand the big picture, but the feeling is there.  I wanted this.” While discussing the single season rushing record, Peterson spoke about the MVP award. “In my heart, I believe I’m the MVP,” Peterson told King. “Whether I win it or not, I feel I’m the MVP.” It will be a shame if Peterson does not win the MVP. Yes, Manning has had a great comeback season, but he was not on the same level as Peterson this year. Manning certainly led his team to a better record, but Peterson took his entire team into the playoffs. Without Peterson, the Vikings are not even close to a playoff team. Without Manning, the Broncos still win the AFC West. Oh and of course there is that one little addition of Peterson nearly breaking a 28 year record. Peterson deserves the MVP and better win it when the league announces it in 33 days. The post Adrian Peterson to Dickerson: “I’m coming for you” appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
