Why would or should I care about what CJ has to say? Before you tweet what he's saying, ask yourself that question! MVPetersonâ Adrian Peterson (@AdrianPeterson) March 4, 2013
And we've got a new rivalry!
A match at WrestleMania XXIX likely isn't in the cards for these two titans of the gridiron. So the only way to settle their differences is to take them to the grid!
And without further ado ...
|Player||Adrian Peterson||Chris Johnson||Give it to ...|
|Height/weight:||6-1, 217||5-11, 191||Push|
|Comic book character he could relate to:||Wolverine||The Flash||Push|
|Initial driven nickname:||A.D.||CJ2K||Johnson. Mostly because many of you insist on calling him A.P., which is just wrong.|
|Self-glossed nickname:||MVPeterson (from the tweet above)||Every Coach's Dream||Peterson. If you aren't familiar with Johnson's attempt at ECD, look at this tweet. Via. Notice it garnered only three "favorites." Come on, dude.|
Always dapper (get it, A.D. is also always dapper?)
Bought his first suit for his NFL Network appearance last week.
|Johnson. He got dressed up for us, after all.|
|What was his 40 time:||4.38||4.24||Johnson|
|Is he proud of that 40 time?||I guess?||Hell, yes||Johnson. Why not? He's the fastest man in the NFL right now.|
|Pre-draft comparison:||Eric Dickerson||David Meggett||Peterson. You think I'm kidding about this? Check it out right here.|
|Chip on his shoulder:||Not going No. 1 overall||Not being the first running back selected||Push|
|Team that should have drafted him:||Raiders||Raiders||Push. Although, if the Raiders drafted Peterson the year before, they wouldn't have needed Johnson. I've given myself a lot to think about.|
|Who'd they take instead?||JaMarcus Russell||Darren McFadden||Johnson. Wait, who does get the edge there? It's hard to say, I guess.|
|Best season:||2,097 rushing yards in 2012||2,006 rushing yards in 2009||Peterson. Both went over 2,000 rushing yards, sure. But Peterson rushed for more. Do I really have to explain this?|
|Hardware that season:||MVP||Offensive player of the year||Peterson. Offensive player of the year seems like a made-up award. Like when I would win "most spirited" in Little League. You're either the MVP or not.|
|Super Bowl title?||No||No||Push|
|Who's he relying on to help get him there?||Christian Ponder||Jake Locker||Neither|
|Where did you draft him in your fantasy leagues last year?||Third round||End of the first round||Peterson|
|How'd that work out for you?||Won your league!||Not so much||Peterson. I will say this. I had A.D. in the one league I lost last year, and I won a league with Johnson. But that can't be the norm.|
|Meme alert:||Orange peanut!||Bongo drums (about two minutes in)||Peterson.|
You knew Peterson was going to win this one. Don't be surprised.
