Ex-Viking Darren Sharper made a silly comment in an online chat a few days ago in which he basically was taunting Adrian Peterson, and at the same time predicted that the Saints and Vikings would both make it to the playoffs.
Sharper said: “I’ll be looking forward to playing the Vikings and I hope Adrian Peterson is still there so I can run through his chest.”
First of all, I’ll admit that Sharper didn’t exactly guarantee playoff spots for the Vikes and the Saints, but since they don’t play each other this coming season, the playoffs are the only real option for Sharper to get his wish.
Second, the thought of Sharper even catching Adrian Peterson after his performance over the last few years is pretty much a laugh and a half. He should be more worried about making a Saints starting lineup that is now chaulk full of young secondary players rather than running his mouth about spearing the league’s best player.
