Rate Adrian Peterson's season

    If he doesn't win the MVP, just scrap the trophy. What he did this year is beyond human. Just a joy to watch.

    So, after almost 2,100 yards on a knee that should just now be getting back to normal, where do you rate Peterson's 2012 on the list of all-time great single seasons?

    Here's my list:

    Adrian Peterson, 2012
    Everyone other season by anyone else

    I hope he dies of dysentery.

    I actually watched Eric Dickerson and Dan Marino in 1984. Men against boys.

    Ditto for Peyton Manning in 2005 and Tom Brady/Randy Moss in 2007.

    Peterson is impressive because of what he had to come back from.

    Dickerson vs. Peterson:

    Dickerson had 4 Pro-Bowl offensive lineman blocking for him. Peterson had 0.

    On the other hand, Christian Ponder > Dieter Brock

    It's pretty impressive, I think a lot of people though are going to tend to vote for another MVP option with the justification Peterson is doing this against defenses built to stop a pass-heavy league, and against a league where the linebacker just isn't that key a figure anymore.

    This is one of my favorite things you've ever posted.

    If Dieter Brock was the starting QB that season, you'd have a great argument.

    Brock wasn't the Rams' quarterback in 1984. Jeff Kemp was, at least for most of the season. Though the point still holds up. Kemp sucked, too.

    Yep. I have no problem ranking this AP season ahead of Dickerson's. Just wish he'd gained a measly 9 more yards to make it official and indisputable.

    Brock didn't always suck.
    People said he had the strongest arm they'd ever seen.
    Once threw it 93 yards in the air goofing around before a game.
