    WTH are you talking about?

    Where's your evidence? Oh yeah, nothing. You're a disgrace.

    You spend more time in this forum denigrating this team than supporting your own.

    I'm guessing that you have no personal knowledge of Sanders.

    The biggest reason why the Lions have no titles is Barry Sanders. By far the biggest reason.

    That is absurd. They didn't win Superbowls because of the best player on their team, a guy who was an all-time great?

    I know you don't like Sanders, but no way does that make any sense.

    No team can win when they are always 2nd and long and 3rd and long.

    IF anyone could do this, it'd be Adrian Peterson. People have doubted him his entire career.

    To even be in the conversation of this record you need atleast a window of 10 years of 1,000+ yards. Adrian Peterson can most certainly perform at this level for another 5 years. I predict that Adrian will surpass Barry and Walter Payton at the end of his career.

    Now what's going to end up hurting his chances of getting the record that #22 set, is the fact that Emmitt tacked on those extra seasons out in Arizona.

    I just find it ironic that here in Peterson we have a once in a generation type player and people are so bent on defending our Cowboys alumni that we fail to appreciate a story unfolding in front of us. Adrian Peterson coming back from two different injuries and putting up Eric Dickerson in his prime type numbers is enough for me to see that this is not an ordinary athlete.
