In a close call, I'll take Peterson.  I like the guy who can run over you.

McCoy has had a better all around team in the Eagles where Peterson has been able to turn in big numbers with little help and no passing game!!!! Peterson needs a ring!

AP has the 2,000 yard season after ACL surgery. If LeSean can manage that then he deserves all the credit in the world. Until then.....he's just a good running back. Remember......only 7 people have rushed for over 2k and AP is one of them. It's not like there's a 2k rusher every year, it's still a rare feat.

@ChristianFrazilus I wondered that too when I read it. He wrote "rushing" but what he meant was total, rushing+receiving, which is accurate. I also noticed he didn't mention AD played in fewer games due to an ACL tear.

Personally, I still take Charles over either of them.

@jeffhendog Over Mccoy Definitley not AP just yet in a year or two though Charles will be the best back in the league though without a doubt
