Oh give me a break with this bull****.
First he's definitely not better than Emmitt. Let's get that straight right now. Before this season Peterson had one season where he rushed for over 1500 yards in his first 6 seasons. Emmitt had done that 3 times by that time.
Second during that football life episode Emmitt came across as a guy defending himself for the 10,000 time about breaking Payton's record while Barry quit. What the hell is wrong with what Emmitt said on that episode? I'll tell you nothing. What I had a problem with is crybaby Lomas Brown(we all know his character these days), Herman Moore and Thurman 'loser, I can't find my helmet' Thomas. They all came across as bitter. Especially Brown when he said 'you wouldn't hear anything about Emmitt if Barry hadn't retired' Really Lomas, Emmitt was a champion, 4 time rushing titlist by time Barry retired so I think we would STILL know who Emmitt is. Emmitt was defending himself AGAIN over the stupidity of having to 'apologize' for breaking a record.
