During a conference call with Wisconsin-area reporters Wednesday, Peterson talked about the difficulty of succeeding as a back when the opposing defense isn't showing respect for your team's vertical attack.
"Lacy, he had come in and helped their running game tremendously," said Peterson, whose Vikings head to Lambeau Field on Sunday. "But it shows with Aaron Rodgers not back there how big of a difference he makes and what he means to that offense. So that situation right there is a perfect one to look at."
Take a second and imagine what Peterson could do if he ever played with a quarterback of Rodgers' caliber. He would run for all the yards. All of them.
