MVPeterson — Adrian Named NFL’s Most Valuable Player

Posted by Mike Wobschall on February 2, 2013 – 7:53 pm

Adrian Peterson is the NFL’s Most Valuable Player.

It’s not often a NFL franchise has one of its former players elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It’s even more infrequent that a NFL franchise has one of its current players win the NFL’s MVP award. The Vikings had both happen on the same day, as two of the greatest players in franchise history provided a Hall of Fame-MVP sweep on Saturday in New Orleans.

Peterson was named the 2012 NFL MVP on Saturday night at the annual NFL Honors Awards Show, and earlier in the day Cris Carter was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Peterson also won the following awards: AP Offensive Player of the Year, FedEx Ground Player of the Year and NFL.com Fantasy Football Player of the Year.

“As an organization, we are extremely proud of Adrian’s accomplishments this past season,” said Vikings Owner/President Mark Wilf. “He is a great representative of the Minnesota Vikings both on and off the field, and we want to congratulate him on this incredible honor.”

Peterson rushed his way into the history books in 2012, less than a year removed from a serious knee injury and grueling rehabilitation process. He finished the season with 2,097 yards rushing, the second-highest total in League history and just 9 yards shy of breaking Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson’s NFL record (2,105).

Aside from ranking #1 in the NFL in rushing yards, Peterson also ranked#1 in yards per attempt (among RBs) at 6.0, #1 in carries of 20+ yards (27), #1 in rushes for a 1st down (85), #2 in carries (348), and #3 in rushing TDs (12). Peterson tied Earl Campbell for the most games with at least 150 rushing yards in a single season (7) and from Week 7 through Week 15 he accumulated 1,313 yards in 8 games, the most over any 8-game span in a single season in NFL history.

The historic season Peterson authored was instrumental in the Vikings generating the greatest single-season win increase in franchise history, going from 3 wins in 2011 to 10 wins in 2012 in addition to making the playoffs as a Wild Card team.

    Adrian Peterson is the only selection that has made me scream like a little school girl when he was drafted. (ha ok maybe not that bad but I was sure excited)

    I have never wanted someone more coming into an NFL draft and once we got him I knew amazing was ahead.

    Well here’s to the great Adrian Peterson and may the amazing continue to happen!

    Congratulations AP!!!

    You deserved it!

    SKOL!!!!

    Great news for C.C. getting into the H.o.F. He deserved to be in it his first year eligible but I digress. Happy for the Carter family. Looking forward to his son hopefully playing for the Vikings this coming season.

    A well deserved MVP award for the man the myth the legend Adrian “All-Day” Peterson. Also known as the GREATEST RUNNING BACK OF ALL TIME!

    Great video HCG. But next time add more violent acts against the stupid cheeseheads.

    That is right, bluebird. If the vikings had kept moos, they might be the ones playing today. People keep screaming for wide recievers for the team.

    You had one of the great one in Moss, but like other good players thrown out the backdoor.

    Fantastic, phenomenal player and first class individual. Huge congratulations on all the awards. He’ll join Alan Page from 1971 and Fran Tarkenton from 1975 as the third Viking ever to win MVP. It is a good year to be a Vikings fan and for the Vikings organization. Like AP said next year will be even better when he can’t accept the award because they’ll be preparing for the Super Bowl.

    I still remember showing this video of Adrian Peterson to multiple people leading up to the 2007 NFL Draft. I kept saying that the Vikings have to walk away with this guy. He is the future and we’ll regret it later if we don’t do whatever it takes to get him. I was absolutely ecstatic when the Vikings drafted him. Its one of my favorite Viking fan memories. Every year I keep telling myself that I am so glad we have him and not someone else. Adrian Peterson is my personal favorite athlete ever and his amazing story is still unfolding. SKOL!

    Flacco ???..hahaha…Ponder is better than Flacco !!!…

    Flacco is a very average QB, that has had a solid post season…

    Flacco has T Smith and A Boldin to throw too this past fall…And neither one broke a 1,000 yards receiving !!!…Flacco was over throwing and under throwing his receivers all season long…

    Flacco is going to get paid this off season…For FINALLY finding his WR’s in the playoffs…Flacco is going to be paid big after this season…And will not be worth the price tag he gets…Not even close…

    Wow, what can you say, words are not enough to describe” AP” and the only left for him is a SB ring and of course for the whole team. Ap is the new EF Hutton, when he speaks everyone listens, there is no one more deserving of the rewards he received, a real “Role Model” right after the greatest role model that ever lived(JC) and he gives Him all the credit, GOD bless you Adrian Peterson, stay humble my friend!

    One of the things that is so awesome and promising about AP, is that even after becoming the MVP and rushing for over 2000, he still wants to get better, he wants more, he is still hungry. That is HUGE for our team!! That could easily send us into the next level. I can see everyone taking heed and picking up their game. AP is something else!!!!!!

    Spencer…

    I guess you must not have had T Smith on your fantasy team this last fall ???…
    I did…And Flacco was horrible getting him the ball…Flacco misfired plenty throwing the ball down the field…

    Lets just say…If Ponder had Smith and Boldin to throw too ???…And Flacco had Jenkins and a hurting Simpson to throw too ???…

    I believe Ponder would have blown Flacco’s passing yards out of the water this past fall…imo…As it stands…The numbers were pretty similar…Flacco threw for 800 more yards total…But Flacco threw the ball 50 more times than Ponder also…

    Ponder is going to surprise a lot of people next season…If we get him some help at the WR position…And fix the hole at LG in pass protection…And AP will still get big stats also…

    Flacco won’t look so good against the 9ers pass rush, and that O-line will be opening huge holes for Gore. Not to mention, Kaepernick has a very accurate CANNON of an arm. Doesn’t look good for the Ravens … Sorry

    Don’t know who to rout for!!! Would love to see long time great center for the Vikes and the Ravens, Matt Birk win a SB ring!! Could care less about Bryant McKinnie, even though he played a long time for the Vikes!!! Then there’s Randy Moss, one of the greatest and probably, one of the greatest Vikings to ever play for us!!! He’s been on two teams that finished the regular season at 15-1, Vikings ’98 and 16-0, Patriots!! Neither team won the Super Bowl, of course we know our ’98 Vikes didn’t even make the Superbowl, still a tough one to swallow!!! So with that all said and the 49ers being an NFC team, I will rout for and predict a 49ers victory, 24-16!!!

  65. By Titus Flavius Caesar Vespasianus Augustus on Feb 3, 2013 | Reply

    Hopkins and Parkway, you may be right. I know the Niners are explosive and have a mean defense. The Ravens are solid across the board without a lot of pizzazz and have a good QB with a mean defense. AND both have great coaches. Whatever happens— it should be one of the most entertaining. But I think the Niners are a tad too co.cky– and their coach is a tad too zealous compared to his brother— borderline cuckoo sometimes. And the Ravens are inspired. Ravens by 10.

    Randy Moss said the other day he is the greatest WR ever– usually when things like that are said, it spells trouble. A little humble pie is on the Niners’ after game menu. Mark my words.

    AP ALL DAY I knew this day would come and it was well deserved. I heard all the talk about how Payton was the better choice and take nothing from him because when it comes to a player that is a class act and great player I agree he is one of the best ever but this was and is AP’s year. I see more mvp’s ahead for Peterson and agree that next yr is our chance to go all the way. We did this with mediocre receiver’s and they will improve next yr and with the right draft choice we will do as Peterson predicted.

    Did you catch the last few plays, the long pass sf threw, they had two receivers going long, they threw to the receiver and he dropped it, the other receiver Moss was wide open, he had his man beat and they didn’t throw to him. That is what made Moss famous, I would of loved to have seen them throw to him for the td.

Love that AP got the MVP even more happier that Cris Carter got in the Hall of Fame. I think it was appropriate that Matt Birk and Big Mac got their Superbowl Rings. I think both were shown the door a bit early by the Vikings. I think you will see wholesale retirements on the Ravens Team some have been in the league awhile now. San Fran is a young team and will be the team to beat next season. Doesn’t Randy Moss stay for another year, I don’t know.

    I don’t get Beyonce it was like Madonna lite. Maybe it’s because I am older I didn’t recognize a single song. It wasn’t that the half time show was bad mind you.

    The difference between the Ravens winning and SF losing is at the QB position. You could tell that his inexperiene caused some miss-steps in the game. That’s the problem with having a rookie as your starter. He will be much better next year.

    Congrats to Cris Carter and Peterson. They so deserved it. As far as the Superbowl, Ravens deserved to win as well. As afar as the half-time show, Beyonce was very over-rated. It was all about her. Couldn’t even hear her friends from Destiny’s Child and they were there for like one minute. Sorry, but half-time spectacular was a fizzle. They should have brought in more variety that all generations could appreciate. My Dad actually turned off his TV.

    I think Farve was just hanging out with a friend. I wouldn’t read too much out of it. Farve is mending fences with the Packers, so I don’t think coaching for the Vikings would help mend any fences. I am sure Farve wants to be enshrined on the Lambeau Field ring of honor.

    Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree. Two players predicted to go in the first round. How were they able to play so well? Having at DT like Jenkins plug up the middle and occupy 2 blockers on every play really freed those 2 up to make plays.

    PurplHaze- Cris Carter was a guy who, just like Mathieu and Harvin, had attitude and off field issues. Why did we keep Cook? Why is Percy still on the roster since everyone thinks he’s a cancer? You take a guy like Mathieu in the mid to late rounds so if he does prove to be trouble we did not invest alot into getting him. But if he does turn out to be the player who was a Heisman candidate then boy we are just adding great talent to an already improving defense.

    We have shown in the past that we can take players with troubled pasts and get the most out of them on the field. Mathieu is a player we should take. I cant think of anyone better to replace Winfield when he does retire.

    Spencer you cant deny that Cook had troubles off the field. You just cant. But we stuck with him. There is no reason we cant bring a guy like Mathieu in with a mid to late round pick.

    I honestly still like Woods more than Patton. Im not saying that Patton cant be good football player at the next level because I believe he can but to me Woods is simply better.

    If Woods played for Louisiana Tech in the WAC…. the Patton lovers now would be drooling in the same way but instead for Woods.

    There would be no question about it for me if I had to take either… I would take Robert Woods every time.

    Had Percy not gotten injured, It would have been him accepting the MVP award not AD.

    He was an MVP candidate throughout the first half of the year. You’re always going to have personalities on your team, generally from the great players. Its the coaches job to make it work. There is no replacing a talent like Harvin.

    Just like there is no replacing a talent like Moss. Here is a history lesson, trading Moss didnt work.

    What on earth would make someone think trading Harvin will?

    Oh no you’re all good.

    I didn’t write comment as a snap back either. Just more so stating.

    As for football school….

    being plugged in constantly to the football is my school.

    I find the sport absolutely fascinating so be it reading, watching, or listening I am naturally searching for something I don’t know yet.

    Although I have many favorite football moments every year (Season opener, Playoffs, Superbowl, Awards, Hall of Fame) its the NFL Draft that seems to be the most intriguing.

    Football is the game but the NFL is a business. Owners obviously want their teams to bring in as much money as possible. To bring in the money, you need to bring in the fans to purchase your team merchandise (tickets, parking, tv contracts, apparel, ect.) In order to get the most people to purchase your merchandise, you need your team to win. In order for your team to win, you need good players. To get good players, you need to draft well.

    It all sounds common sense but its makes the entire draft process that much more fascinating when you look at it that way. An entire decade can be changed with one draft. An entire franchises revenue hangs on each draft selection.Future triumph and failure happens every year as a direct result of the draft.

    Think if the Raiders had Adrian Peterson?

    What if the Jacksonville Jaguars had drafted Tom Brady?

    Instead of drafting Tony Mandarich, the Packers take Barry Sanders with their 2nd overall selection?

    The Colts select Ryan Leaf instead of Peyton Manning…

    Imagine how much differently those franchises would have been if they had drafted those players.

    It’s absolutely unreal how each draft selection can shape the future of your ‘ENTIRE’ franchise be it for good or bad.

    Rounds 1-7… every selection counts.

    Every franchise depends on it.

    It only takes one draft… that’s it…

    to change the course of the future.

    The next amazing will happen Thursday, April 25th, 2013.

    Can’t wait!

    Nother Norseman I completely understand you there. You look at certain drafts and realize just how important it really is.

    How more often than not we miss on a pick. Then you take a closer look at how fortunate we really are to have lived on other franchise’s misfortunes. Once in a generation type players.
    Alan Page 15th overall. First and if I’m not mistake only defensive player to win MVP.
    John Randall undrafted. Has most sacks ever by a DT
    Randy Moss 21st overall pick.
    Adrian Peterson 7th overall.
    Percy Harvin 22nd overall.

    This year we have the 23rd overall pick. What player will fall to us this year?

    Thats the problem !!!…Percy thinks he can be a pain in the bu-tux,,,Because the Vikings can’t replace him…

    Harvin is wrong…Dead wrong !!!…

    Harvin has the perfect set up in Minnesota…He has talent…Few other WR’s on this team last season did…

    All Harvin had to do to make HUGE money this off season…Was play well last season…And keep his big mouth shut, and just play football !!!…

    Instead he asks for a trade in preseason…Tells coaching staffs what “he wants to do” in the offense…Then yells at the head coach in the middle of a game…Then mysteriously gets injured later in that game…An injury he never recovers from ???…

    Did Harvin ever have migraines ???…Or just an over active attitude, that needed an excuse his bad temper ???…

    Harvin is a cancer…Trade Percy…He CAN be replaced with a football player !!

    I hate whiners !!!!..
    Team players are winners !!!..

    We need to replace Harvin with 3 guys.

    1. A tall #1 WR with great hands that knows how to get open quick and move the chains… someone who can also beat you deep and in the red zone. Answer: DWAYNE BOWE

    2. A flanker that can block in the running game but also with great hands,quickness and route running skill. Answer: D HOPKINS or QUINTON PATTON (round 1 or 2)

    3. A 3rd down back that can pick up a blitz but also has hands like a WR. Someone with enough explosion to take a dump off to the house. Answer: MARUS LATTIMORE or JOSEPH RANDLE. (round 3 or 4)

    I agree with all you that have said,” I never wanted anyone to get MVP more than Adrian.” He may not get 2500 yards next year but I am sure he will give it his all. The only thing ( good thing ) will be because they got the passing game going so hopefully it will match AP’s ground game and not his match the pass, if he doesn’t Congratulations Adrian, the most amazing accomplishment by an inspiring individual ever.

  298. By Northern Norseman on Feb 5, 2013 | Reply

    If the Vikings do pass up Marcus Lattimore in the 4th round I will be upset.

    I have a hunch that he will go before the 4th but it seems like guys with injury concern plummet in the draft. With today medical advances I don’t worry as much in injuries.

    If the guy has been a high caliber guy the go and take him because more often than not those guys recover from their injuries and are just fine.

    Trade Gerhart for a 3-5 rounder and get a solid RB in rounds 4-7.
