Adrian Peterson has 1,600 yards through 13 games and said recently that Eric Dickerson should be nervous.

"I'm not nervous," Dickerson said, laughing.

In his first public comments since Peterson got close to his mark and said Dickerson should be nervous, Dickerson made one thing clear: He has great respect for Peterson but doesn't think Peterson will break his mark.

"Adrian is a class guy," Dickerson said. "I don't watch football any more. I don't watch sports. I just see the highlights. I see his highlights and he's a great player. I don't want him to break my record, but I wish him the best."

Then Dickerson was more blunt.

"I don't want him to break it," Dickerson said. "I'll be honest. I don't want to see it. If anyone ever broke it, and if my son played football, I'd want my son to break it. But that's it. No one else.

"Again, he's a phenomenal player and seems like a good dude. If a player was to break it, I'd probably want it to be Adrian, but I like having the record. I don't think it's going to be broken." (CBS Sports)
