Raymond should be traded. He is worthless.

Well you can thank Coach Fraser for him missing it by 9 yards. They took him out of the game last week with over 3 minutes left, and did the same the game before. I think he could of got another 9 yards with 10 more carries. This is a case of coaches thinki9ng too much and it hurt their little brains. Idiots!

Adrian, from a life-long Vikings fan - thank you.

As a die hard Viking fan since I was a kid; Adrian Peterson you are the best Viking player of all time.

AP, you're the man. Thanks for putting the team ahead of yourself. None (OK, maybe one or two, for argument's sake) of the naysayers would have EVER expected the Vikes to be 10-6 this year and going to the playoffs (I did, btw, scroll back on my comments, but I was just being a fan, not a savant). Well done, you. Thanks!

In Minnesota we always come up short. At the start of the game my wife said he would come up one yard short. I've got witnesses.

Thank you Adrian Peterson for an awesome year! You are a class act and we are all very lucky that you wear Vikings purple! You'll get this record in the near future and probably all of them. I look forward to celebrating your greatness as a Viking for years to come!

another sketchy ref call on the challenge fumble play. For one thing that wasnt a TD for another the Packers are supposed to lose the review due to throwing the challenge flag, at least that is what happened to the Lions, the whole BS about the review was already going to happen is complete crap. Double standards are BS. The Packers players even thought that was the case. Rodgers was pissed that coach threw the flag and Nelson picked the flag up and tried to hide it. Then you see them laughing about getting away with it on the sideline. LOL I knew something like that was going to happen this game. Something will happen in Lamblow again next week but the Vikes won't be able to overcome it due to being on the road much like the 1st game at Lamblow with the Allen INT

LEGEND: 24 seconds left, Vikings looking at a 55 yard field goal. Green Bay knowing who is getting the ball. Adrian Peterson makes a 26 yard run to set up the easy field goal. What a clutch player.

Far and away the best player I've ever seen as well as the easiest to root for. Having someone like him on your favorite team makes it special no matter your record.
