Adrian Peterson believes he's the best player in the NFL, which pretty well answers where the Vikings star thinks he rates among running backs.
Philadelphia's LeSean McCoy recently said that he, not Peterson, is the top running back in the NFL. Meanwhile, NFL Network is counting down the top 100 players in the league, as compiled by a vote from players and fans, and Peterson was asked Thursday where he believes he should finish.
"One," he said. "I feel I'm the best."
Peterson, though, acknowledged he doesn't expect to end up there.
"Peyton (Manning) will be 1, of course," he said. "The MVP will be 1."
Peterson eventually said he was satisfied calling himself "1B'' behind "1A" for the Denver quarterback -- but he certainly isn't willing to take a back seat to McCoy. (Pioneer Press)
