We mentioned earlier in the day that the Associated Press announced its 2009 All-Pro Team and that the Vikings led all NFL teams with 4 players honored. We also said that the All-Pro team is a bit more prestigious because it’s composed of fewer players than the Pro Bowl teams.
But All-Pros don’t suit up and play in an all-star game at the end of a season. So which is better – being named an All-Pro or being named a Pro Bowler?
Well who better to ask than Vikings RB Adrian Peterson. He’s a notorious and ambitious goal-setter, plus he’s already been named to 3 Pro Bowls and 2 first-team All-Pro teams.
Peterson was actually asked the question while meeting with reporters, and his answer should make every Vikings fan smile.
“I’m looking at the Super Bowl, that’s what I want,” Peterson said. “Everything else really doesn’t mean anything if you don’t accomplish the ultimate goal. That’s what I’m looking at. If I get a Super Bowl ring, that would be lovely.”
