Faithful Falcon

Adrian Peterson

30 posts in this topic

I'm not going to knock the man, because when he was in his prime he was one of the most feared running backs of all time. As for what he has to offer now, who knows, maybe in the right offense perhaps flashes of his skill set once was might happen.

Thing is though, the man has a target on his back for his accomplishments at this point in time, so he'd better be at his best or there will be players wanting to make a name for themselves by putting the hurt on him with a tackle hit and such things just so they can say something like "I stopped Adrian Peterson with my tackle/hit". 

I wish Adrian Peterson the best, and I don't care who hates me for doing so. That is except against the Falcons! I hope the Falcons beat that team and him badly!

I wonder how many people make a claim for Eric Dickerson as a Falcon?

Well, if it doesn't work out for the GREAT GUY, he can always become a wrestler, and take out his frustrations on someone much smaller and helpless.  I mean, if he's into that. Related image

Well I was young at the time but one of the Sega games I have is Joe Montana football 94 and Eric Dickerson is on the Falcons on that game. For the longest time I never knew that was the same Eric Dickerson that played for the Rams. LOL!

Yep, 4 games. That's why I mentioned him. I remember reading that the Falcons traded him somewhere, don't remember where, and instead of going and playing for that team he retired.

I, along with a lot of people, never understood AP going to the Saints so it’s not surprising it didn’t work out. (Maybe he didn’t have any other offers)

With that said, I hope he has some success in AZ.  He’s been a great player and deserves to go out on a high note.

Or what about this one? Glanville calling Brett Favre "Mississippi?"

 

"hey mississippi, show these guys how you can throw the ball in the upper deck"

one of the reasons Favre would not only NOT have had a football career had he stayed here, he wasn't getting any leadership to keep him out of the nightclubs. he might not have lived long if he'd have stayed here

the best part of the glanville era, was at least the sidelines with all the celebrities was entertaining. 

 

I'm not sure Dickerson was ever really going to fit in the 'run and shoot' offense june jones was running.....
