Adrian Peterson Doesn't Think Chris Johnson is Faster Than Him

New, comments

Adrian Peterson went on the Dan Patrick show today and said that he thinks he is the best running back in the NFL  When Patrick asked him if Chris Johnson does anything better than him he responded:

"No, [he's] not faster, stronger, anything," Peterson said. "You’ve got to understand you’re talking to a guy … that’s just the mentality that I have. I have ultimate respect for the guy and he’s a heck of a player. I remember at one point and time me talking on the phone to Chris Johnson.  He was telling me, ‘I’m just a big fan of yours. I like your style.’ Some [of the] advice that I gave him was, ‘I play this game to be the best player ever to play the game. That’s my mentality.'"

And then he fumbled the phone....

But seriously, AP might be stronger than CJ but there is no way he is faster.
