2 2,000 yard total yards is not all that unique - again, you don't know what you're talking about. What made Peterson elite is the fact that he had 2,000 yards just from rushing alone. 700 receiving with a little over 1,000 yards rushing and 9 TDs-12 TDs is not "elite" - either way, the year Ravens won the freakin' Super Bowl, he was far from an "elite" player. Nor are you even making a valid argument here - again I will state, having a couple great seasons does not make you an elite player. Demarco Murray was never "elite" - he had some great seasons, the same with Chris Johnson. If anything, you're proving my point - despite the guy going over 2,000 yards rushing on the ground and Demarco Murray having 1,800 yards rushing - neither of them were elite, and they certainly were not worth a big contract. It's a fundamental problem with the position - big years and then nothing. It's a fade fast position. Jesus.
