Re: Payton: Peterson not declining like most older RBs

Hershel Walker still looks like he could play today. Its about stamina and recovery time for injury. At his age those are really the two career killers for RB's, not whether or not he looks great in shells.

But yeah, from all I read he looks like the kind of back that can play in to his mid 30's. He is absolutely a freak of nature and whats great is that we don't need him to carry the ball 20-plus times per game. All of that considered, he really is a perfect addition to our running game.

I'm probably more excited about hearing that his pass-protection and receiving skills have been very impressive since those were supposedly his glaring weaknesses.

He was not used to his greatest potential in the Vikings offense. He is also an anomaly physically. Do not compare him to the norm.

Jim Brown retired at 30 and he was stilll at the height of his career. I think AP is cut out of the same cloth and toughness.

He can get it done not even questioning it. It's the recovery. MUCH slower at 32. There will some great flashes if he stays healthy but this chatter of him being able to take the full brunt is nonsense.

Adrian won't have to "grind it" out for 13 + games. He isn't going to be the bell cow in NO. There is this other feller named Mark Ingram who can run the rock as well .

This is great 1,2 punch at RB. That's not evening including Kamara & Kuhn.
