Adrian Peterson is in the spotlight this week for being the rare kind of playmaker who doesn't get enough plays called for him.
Peterson was a guest on "The Rich Eisen Podcast" this week, where he proved to be an honor student in the pro athlete school of saying-something-without-saying-anything-at-all.
"When I look at the film, I can look at it and say, 'You know, I feel like we should have ran the ball in this situation, but then again, we had a good play here,'" Peterson said. "We didn't execute."
"Yeah, he was accurate," Peterson said. "I'm sure there was 52 other guys that were frustrated just walking off the field."
We're telling you, this guy's good. After some talk about Peterson's charity endeavor, "Football for Good," Eisen went back to the workload issue. Peterson still wasn't biting.
Eisen: "Your nickname has not been changed to half a day, correct?"
Peterson: "That's correct."
Peterson: "Oh man ... you know what? We're going to get things turned around, trust me."
Well played, All Day. Well played.
