On Tuesday, Adrian Peterson spent part of his day answering questions from fans’ on Reddit.com, which was set up by Wheaties.
On his nick name (is it AD or AP?)
On if he can reach 2,000 yards again next season
i feel like i’ll be able to repeat. why? just a group a guys in front of me, dedicated to running the ball, were definitely a team, we feel like we wanna do better next year and i just have faith i can do it
On what he’d name his fantasy football team
all day all stars!
On where he would have liked to be drafted if he wasn’t selected by the Vikings
they’re like sour patch kids! guys can be so nice and so sour at times
On Christian Ponder and the locker room
the locker room is feeling confident. he’s showing us a lot. showing that he’s becoming more of a leader. hes taking command of the huddle. putting his confidence on display
On being told he was nine yards shy of the record
it was a little confusing. 9 yards! i dunno it was bittersweet at the time because we had just won as a team, we were in the playoffs, knocked chicago out, but to be 9 yards short. i knew i didnt break it cuz they would have announced it. to get so close. thats the bitter part.
On the funniest guy on the team
funniest guy is jared allen.
not too many pranks but weve had jared allen come in to team meetings in a speedo and a cowboy hat. he is crazy
On the new rule that affects RBs
the rule is what it is. i think it helps prevent injuries. i dont know. i like it in a sense cuz of concussions and neck injuries but on the flipside its going to make guys attack lower. look at keller.
On what he can improve on
areas i can improve upon is everything, pass protection running the ball, blocking down the field, catching the ball, tackling when needed but you dont want to tackle much on offense.
On if he eats Wheaties for breakfast
yes i do! with bananas. and im trying new muddy Wheaties with chocolate milk. its scrumptious
On the best rookie prospect
eddie lacy, but he’s on a passing team. but that was a real good pickup… that i didnt like
On Percy Harvin
he only answers the phone every blue moon
