What a special football player. Man I was pulling from him to break the Rushing yards record, but finshes 9 yards short the year after tearing his ACL. He helped me win 2 of my fantasy football leagues though...
"That was Death Valley,". "That was the place where opponents' dreams come to die. Coach Les Miles after the LSU - South Carolina game.
True sportsman! Was hoping they'd shank it and let him run off 25 yards to the win.
I tore my ACL in HS football... truly unbelievable performance only 1 year removed from surgery, just unbelievable! He definitely deserved to beat the single season record, and I think he deserves the MVP... though I seriously doubt he will get it. Hard to argue against Peyton getting the MVP, but AP's season was truly amazing!
Proud to support everything Louisiana
I think that Peterson and Manning should share both CBPOY and MVP awards!

I would have no problem with that because I really don't see how you separate the two players from each other.
-Peyton was thought he could never play after numerous surgeries on his neck, but came back to lead the Broncos to the best record in the AFC.
-Peterson comes back from an ACL AND MCL tear in only eight months and comes 9 yards short of a record that has been around for nearly 20 years a year after the injury and put his team in the playoffs, when most athletes are just trying to find some playing time a year after that kind of injury.
You can't tell me that one player deserves the awards more than the other
AD is such a beast. I loved his reaction on the field after the win when asked about almost breaking the record.
"Nine yards from what? The record?"
The man had his sights set on the playoffs.
"I guess you've just gotta find something you love to do and then... do it for the rest of your life." - Max Fisher
With that question about the record, I think he was under the impression he broke it. After that last run he made, someone on the Vikings picked him up and carried him off the field and a number of guys patted him on the sidelines, so I'm not sure if he was thinking he broke it until she mentioned he was nine yards short or he was just focused on the playoffs and could careless about the record.
You know Dickerson became a Blair Walsh fan before that last kick.
